St. Monday! Very educational read https://www.fastcompany.com/90309992/people-fought-for-time-off-from-work-so-stop-working-so-much?
Where did you do your holiday party?
Do industry accountants take vacations that are 2 weeks+? I rarely see my clients go on a long vacation but that’s probably due to the audit cycle so I’m curious. Even on Christmas Break some of them are already sending emails on the 26th.
Is it unprofessional, politically incorrect, or a micro-aggression to ask an Indian coworker if they celebrate Diwali? The intention is just to say happy Diwali, but I’m not sure if that’s the same as asking someone their religion, which can sometimes be seen as rude.
Advice needed: got an offer but have a week of vacation already planned in April. Would it look bad if I ask the new employer to try and accommodate? This company is unlimited PTO btw (yes I know it sucks)
Have you ever been told you need to cancel prescheduled PTO because of an engagement running over? If so what was your response? If not, what would your response be?
How much did you bill in April?
Serious question: Invited to a Christmas party tonight and the hosts are not vaxxed, nor is their family. They are also not very careful. Do you go or skip? Note: we are going but after reading through some of these posts wondering if we are crazy? My husband just got booster so he should be fine and I am vaxxed (booster not for 2 more months) and we are making our post-college daughter go (not vaxxed, but she does get out and about and so far has been fine, knock on wood).
Staying with my older sister and her husband’s family while on vacation, her mother in law asked for a picture of me to send to someone (I have 0 idea who, I’m assuming to send to another family to see if their son is interested), I told my sister I feel uncomfortable bc I have no idea who the guy is and what his values are. My sister gets offended saying why am I assuming he’ll even be interested, and saying things like what am I going to do about the marriage situation (cont’d)
It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)? My obligations might be different, but I still have a life and want to be able to do certain things, like catch that evening workout class or cook dinner for my partner. As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.
Happy Monday, Teachers! Who is on summer vacation and who is still chugging along? We still have until June 10th.
Saw one of you in a suit, drunk af at 2am, on 54th and 8th, peeing on the street. I hope you didn't trash your laptop and took PTO today. Stay safe!
EY moms - I’m on leave now, I had my baby about 3 weeks ago. 😊 I was planning to tack on 4 weeks of PTO at the end of my leave (starting in January). Does the new PTO policy change this? My Counselor signed off on these dates and my CFL was Cced on my leave form. I live in CA and will use 8 weeks of PFL at the end of my PTO. Any insights? Thanks!

Anyone have any luck with a fourth IUI medicated cycle? RE recommended three cycles before moving to IVF, but we planned a much needed vacation that will fall right in the middle of an IVF cycle, so decided to do a fourth IUI so we don’t lose the month.
What would you do? Have a flight to JFK and there’s a J train that takes me straight to the air train to the terminal (cost would be $10.50) or take an Uber to JFK (cost would be like $72.60). I’m a woman and would need to leave around 9AM. Tbh I feel unsafe riding the subway for so long but maybe a weekday at 9AM won’t be so bad? Have been wfh so haven’t been using the subway. Have anxiety reading the news with crazies on subway tho.
Email from RM: “having firm approved PTO and scheduled plans is not an excuse for not showing up to an inventory count if an emergency need arises.” Well good luck getting me to show up.

Beyond 2 lines the text in each post card is cut off. I wonder how many lines in the comment section?

Got United to change its website due to my complaints and explanations that they weren't following the posted first class meal service policies. Proud and laughing at myself at the same time 👍🏽😂
Client recognized me in the adjacent bathroom stall by my shoes, asked how the key deliverable was going...not sure what's more awkward, that he asked or that I provided a status.
I don't understand why there are riots/protests. Sure I'm upset, but the republicans didn't uproar when president Obama was elected. Democrats didn't for president Bush. Why now?
I dread going on dates because the paying situation is always so awkward. I feel like there's so much subtext over whether or not a guy pays or splits the bill (i.e. he isn't that into you). Thoughts?
Do you put your year end rating on LinkedIn?
Very things piss me off more than a sr manager, who thinks they know technology, and try to develop a mobile app on web technology with an offshore dev team. #garbage
