Slurping hot drinks and/or eating/chewing when not on mute. It incites murderous tendencies that only consultants withhold on a daily basis.

likefunny

I do too but I can’t when they’re talking AND chewing AND slurping at the same time haha

When someone messages me with "Hi need a favor" and won't expand on what it is until I respond.

C1 is the person we all are scared to get IMs from 😂

I have so many:
Reply all to say “thanks” to someone
Not reading my email and answering only 1 out of the 3 questions (I should learn my lesson and ask only one per email)
Adding people to the email chain so that it becomes confusing who is who
Email signatures with some pathetic quote or religious quote
People who skype me for favors (we are not friends!!)
Emails that don’t specify what exactly they want from you.

When people don't actually read your email and reply back without answering your questions 😑

My pm uses literally no punctuation, like he wants everyone to think he’s too busy for commas. Every email reads like this:
“Hi
I just noticed that this is incorrect and also I remembered that I need you to do x and y ideally I need this immediately and also I am very stressed
Please return ASAP
Thanks
(his name)”
Makes me feel like he’s going to have a heart attack at any given point

Getting them/non-friends using it as a way to communicate.

-> Signatures being too long on drawn out email chains where reading the whole chain from the beginning is important.

like

Email, no contact details in their signature. Skype, people who keep IM-ing me when it's clear I'm presenting or in a conference call. Also, IM-ing me asking for a quick call and then immediately calling me before I had a chance to respond. I don't answer your call on principle.

I’m a single parent and mid-level associate, and have been struggling with the increased expectations from pandemic-level work. I do not have the luxury of a full-time nanny, maids or stay-at-home spouses like most of the partners I work with and the expectation that I be available 24/7 (and on zoom) is impossible to keep up with lately. Work was manageable pre-pandemic (and I really enjoyed it) but these new expectations seem unsustainable. Anyone else in the same boat? How are you managing?

Is it just me or are 3-day weekends so much better for both employers and employees? For employees, obviously 1 extra day with way better mental health coming out of it. For employers, my drive and efficiency is way better and outcomes are considerably better, even if it’s a 4-day work week. Maybe it’s just me... This has been adopted in the Nordics. Can some consulting firm push this please. I’m sure expectations can be set with clients.
