‘During the panny…’ 😂😂😂

Relo seems like a reasonable ask

I would definitely ask them about paying for relocation. But, also very odd that they asked you to move to a new office during remote work and didn’t clarify expectations when you have to physically go back to the office. Honestly, would just start looking for a new job in the city you work in, if you want to stay with your S/O. Market is a bit nuts right now and there seem to be a lot of open roles everywhere!

“The panny?”

they moved you unwillingly? and you’re considering leaving a s/o to uproot your life in a way you can’t afford to keep working there? i’m surprised you didn’t start looking for another job at step one of that series.

So moving and leaving a S/O is a better scenario? I just came off a year of unemployment and finally got something. It may take OP more than 6 months to land something.

SIDE NOTE: obviously I have been looking for other jobs. It’s not that easy and I’ve been interviewing nonstop. No bites :(

So my roommate has been staying elsewhere since we began quarantining and has been returning intermittently. Roommate has been paying half the electricity bill, which I have felt weird even charging for, but my friends have insisted that it is still both our responsibilities. Given WFH is permanent as of now, the electricity has been a bit higher with me home for the 10 hours I’d normally be gone. And with summer approaching, AC is going to double that cost. Do I still keep charging half? AITA?
