I try my best not to.

How do you avoid it?

I just say a big tech comapny or a local xyz company.

I do to near and dear ones, and tell them not to tell anyone haha

I try not to talk about work at all when I'm with friends and family, to be honest. But when it does come up, I never use specifics.

Nooo. I act like it's some big important secret even if the client just wants a nicer-looking food delivery app.

Lol! Hahahahaha!

One time my coworker and I on a trip thought we were walking into a new client meeting (good relationship, not cold) to get briefed. They told us Oh, we thought you were presenting. 2 hours to meeting. Open the laptop in the car as he drives down highway. Write a pitch presentation in Word. 3 half page ideas. It’s for their Olympics sponsorship activation and they’re a billion dollar company. Throw it up on the screen, dance around and bring the ideas to life. Won the business! Lol

My best friend & I got pregnant around the same time. We didn’t know the other was even trying - just a happy surprise. But now I am going through a miscarriage and I don’t know how to feel.

I don’t want to go to her gender reveal next week, it’s still just so painful but I feel like a horrible person for harboring these negative feelings towards her.
