U should cancel the trip altogether and work from home. You will get the people in the plane sick, not very considerate.

I am a field marketer. I travel and cover 12 states. HQ is across the US on the east coast. My manager put a surprise calendar invite twice now to go to home office without consulting dates to see if we were available. I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?

Decided not to change my last name to my husband’s after getting married last year. I’ve been practicing law for over a decade, my name is my brand and I’m simply not interested in changing it. My husband is completely supportive of me, but my family is NOT - they continue to misname me over my protest and at my recent bridal shower (was postponed for covid) made me open up in front of everyone a number of personalized gifts etched with the married name I don’t have or want. Will this ever stop?

I'm all for accelerated teacher internships... that's how I initially started. In the first Bilingual/ Spanish program- USC and LAUSD. Had to have a BA and ability to speak Spanish. They didn't accept HS graduates, veteran or not! Standards not lowered! I had to take entrance exams, state tests, and take out loans! District reneged on hiring us, newly licensed at higher salary, expanded the program and hired the new cheaper interns! Wipe-out credentialed teacher loans and increase our pay!
