Going to give my resignation on Wednesday (30 days notice required). But MDs want to staff me on a 2 week project that I don’t really want to do during my last 30 days. What’s the best way to get out without too much bad blood?

Those two are best options. FWIW - in the last three of me time at a boutique, I took a project from red to amber to green. Led from the front, played hard, had fun. Partner was impressed add said it spoke to the standards I had. Was a time I can look back at and be proud of.

We had new neighbors move in across the street a few months ago. A couple with a child of about 7 years old who clearly has a cognitive disability of some sort (I suspect autism).

I thought perhaps his parents kept an eye on him through the window, but today he was hanging on a neighbor’s front stoop for a good half hour. I went over to talk to him and see if (con’t)
