My wife works remotely (we live in Illinois but her employer is in NY). Will she be eligible for New York Paid Family leave in October when the baby comes? We lived in NY for 6 months of the year, not sure if that helps the fact pattern. The employer is based in NY with the rest of the employees in NY and my wife telecommutes to the NY office daily.
Does anyone work in a work culture where your boss views herself as a mother, her employees as children and then refers to your colleagues as “sisters” and “brothers” and hints that everyone can call her “Mama Bear”. Please share thoughts on this.
A parent of one of my students told admin she thinks it's irresponsible that I won't be grading over Christmas break. I let the students know to get any work they need graded in before the break and I'll get it to it during our workdays in January. Apparently that's not fast enough for her 🙄. Is it wrong that I'm sort of pissed off by this? Should I say something?
My boyfriend has been living with me for 8 months. He has not offered to pay rent but pays the cable bill and for groceries. He makes jokes about me starving him. I eat breakfast earlier than him and do not want to cook breakfast for him again after I’ve started working. For him, breakfast is not food or a meal. I typically make huge dinners 2-3x/week that can last 2-3 days. He does not cook. He has done the dishes a handful of times and cleaned the kitchen. He feels forced to do something nice
Do people treat you differently because of your age based on your rank? I’ve always been considered the “kid” on my projects even by people of lower ranks because of my age and young face.
Happy Mother’s Day all!! You ladies rock!!
I am a first year going second M&A BL associate … just found out I am pregnant and I am terrified … anyone has been in a similar situation? When do you tell your Practice Group Leader?
How does one get into SaaS sales?
I’m 37, 5 years into working for a distributor of building products and have climbed the ladder 🪜 from Territory Manager to Regional Sales Manager, but I’m in charge of 6 of our 7 states and want to travel less now that I have a child. I want to stay in sales and get back into commission vs. salary. I loved chasing the carrot and making more.
I feel like every time my daughter has her monthly check up she comes down with something right before. Either stomach virus, blocked tear duct, cold, COVID.. etc. Is it normal for my child to be attracting (what seems like) all minor (and some not) sicknesses in the world before she turns one? She’s also not in daycare and has a nanny.
I need some advice. 2nd marriage and I make 3x what my husband makes. We have a prenup but did combine finances but are now having money issues. I have issues that he’s planning to continue to provide child support past his daughter’s high school graduation, I contribute significantly into my step children’s 529s but he wants to take loans to pay the rest (bc he didn’t save before he met me), and other similar things. I know money was historically a stressor for him and thus wanted to cont.
I feel like I'm aging at a rapid pace 😔😬🥴...I used to feel like I looked young for my age and now that I'm in my later 30's, I feel like everyday I look older and older. I don't wear a ton of makeup and do usually eat pretty healthily/ drink water. What other tips, tricks, and treatments should I be considering?!? (Mostly feel like my skin is dull, uneven tone, and wrinkles are becoming more apparent) Ugh, ha.... I know it's part of life but want to slow it down!
Any Probate attorneys? My mother just passed away and I have zero experience in this area. There is an original will naming me the agent though I have been unable to read it as the secondary agent won’t hand it over. Can I start probate without it? She died in Idaho which requires formal probate for any estate valued over $100k. By value does that mean after debts are repaid? How does one know the value of the estate before they file? Without the letters testamentary I can’t access …cont’d

Turned in my 2 wks. EM asked me to stay for another week bc manager will be on parental leave around the same time (and sounds like EM is pressuring him as well). Should I consider at all?? Felt a bit guilty to leave the pressure on the manager…
Moving to San Jose from East Coast. Any recommendations on movers? I don't have too much stuff, most of it is for my kid.
My new unit in San Jose doesn't allow for Pod type services so it has to be movers
Someone please tell me that I can get a rear facing child seat in the back of a mustang… otherwise it looks like I’ll have to buy a new family car to drive the little one around (wife doesn’t drive unfortunately).
Could be a good excuse to get a Taycan but was hoping I could just stick with my mustang. We said next car will be an EV didn’t think it would be so soon though!
I’m hearing a lot about people who don’t have kids finding that they are being treated unfairly and I really feel for that. But as someone with kids, I feel like I get it from the other side of the spectrum, where people forget I have them and expect me to turn things ASAP in the evening. It’s not enough to just provide parental leave; I want to not just have my children but also spend time with them!
Looks like B4 partners makes the most $$ in the long run, even tech/FAANG or industry level senior roles doesn’t pay more then $600-700k, except a few roles like ceo/IB/PE/other financial roles/startup rsu (of u r lucky). Came to the conclusion after reading all the posts in this and other bowls. May be MBB, but if u add pensions, I think B4 is better. Thoughts?

As a white manager, how do you approach today with your black employees? Do you bring up this anniversary in any way? If so how do you make it non-triggering?
My therapist just told me I'm depressed..do you ever feel like they tell you things you hear a lot or could have figured out on your own? Like take care of yourself, it's ok to feel such and such, etc. I'm still newer to therapy so wondering if that's the common experience? Do you ever have moments where you're like wow that actually is eye opening and I wouldn't have gotten that from reading self help books and websites etc?

I miss them so much 😩
Just discovered 90DF and completed my first season (s6) and then Happily Ever After. Some thoughts:
- Began as anti-Larissa but Colt basically wants to keep her as a hostage sex kitten under threat of calling cops if she doesn’t fall in line
- Jon and Fernanda - could’ve been a legit couple, had high hopes for them
- (Tr)Ashley - thoroughly unlikeable, doing it for social media likes
- Andrei is on the slope to domestic abuse
- Azan and Nicole - LOL that is a sham marriage if I ever saw one
I cant stand Debbie... Is it just me?
Congrats to Robert and Anny
My Friday gift to this bowl: I couldn't find one master list of all couples and all seasons/spin-offs they've been on so I made one for reference. Enjoy! (this was a great use of my time, I promise lol)
Online/chatroom Colt: Smooth-talking stud, 10/10
Real life Colt: Gamer Nerd living with his mom, 2/10
Who do you dislike/hate on this show? So hard to choose. I’ll just listen them all lol. Big Ed, Asuelu, Andreiiiiiiiii, Sasha, Leida 😂
I found Jonathan, Becky (Elizabeth’s sister), Russ and Colteee’s entirely normal/boring LinkedIn profiles and now I want to add them!
Update: In his IG stories, Paul states that Karine has filed a restraining order preventing him from contacting her or Pierre. On IG, he also posted what looks to be Karine’s statement to the police. The statement does have explicit descriptions of DV/SV and may be triggering, so I did not include it here but you can easily find it on his account if wanted. I hope they all get the help they need.
Lol how much Yara complains about New Orleans yet walks around with a Staten Island sweatshirt 🤣
Do you think Stephanie is a pain killer addict?
Darcy is engaged?!
Welcome to the 90 Day Fiance Fanatics bowl! Here is our official first thread focusing on the latest episode: The Other Way S2E9 Crossing the Line.
-Were you impressed with Ariela’s Ethiopian hospital tour?
-Should Deavan leave Jihoon and go back to the US?
-Are Armando and Kenneth the cutest couple in 90 Day history?
-Should Melyza forgive Tim for his infidelity?
-Is Brittany being disrespectful by insisting on her American customs?
Paul went on IG Live this afternoon after Karine called the police. I have not watched the video, but bloggers report that Paul accused Karine of drinking in front of their son, domestic violence (shoving him), giving him an STD, and being pregnant again. The video ends with Karine asking to be taken to a shelter. Very sad.
This is one of my favorite couples from the show. While Steven was quite immature during the show, it seemed like he was just young and wanted to be a good dad. They've been together as a family for a while now, he has taken up yoga to manage his temper issues, she has a career on the side as a photographer and they seem happy. I hope their social media is a true representation of their lives and I hope they are truly happy together with their little son 😊
Ugh Libby's family is just as toxic as Andrei!
Did anyone see those big bucket of tears from Jihoon, and Devan’s response? Devan needs to go back home with her mom and leave Jihoon with his mom.
