Seems like a boundary is being crossed. You are not saving lives at 2am. Only your SO, parents, etc. should be calling at that hour with an emergency.

That's total bullshit and a power move. Fuck that. I can see late at night if you're on a deadline or new business pitch but 2 am? Is this standard operating procedure? I had a boss once say she stopped doing that bullshit once she realized it didn't make her look good. She was essentially saying to everyone she had no life, no boundaries and that she expected everyone else to operate in the same way. She had originally thought it demonstrated how hard she was working, but instead it made the people who work for her feel like shit. And always on pins and needles because they might get that stupid email on a Saturday night. She now drafts all of her emails late at night and saves them until the next morning. And then hits send. She does the same on the weekends and sends them out Monday morning. Best piece of advice ever. It's okay to have a cut off. 7, 8 pm is reasonable. Unless it's a text to say you're awesome and here's a big fat raise. That can come any time.

How do you feel about splitting everything 50-50 with your partner?

I get where he’s coming from but 50-50 just feels transactional and not intimate.

Hi Ladies! I’m a sales rep for a private duty non-medical Homecare agency and when making cold visits at hospitals or clinics to introduce myself I’m often not allowed in. It seems that due to covid they aren’t allowing un-scheduled visits and since I’m new to the area I don’t really know anyone. Anyone experiencing similar challenges? What other ways can I get my foot in the door and meet the key players to begin to establish those relationships?
