The Maga-hat kid incident and the response by the media is nothing short of online lynching. This is a 16 year old kid smiling. That's it. We have people calling for his life to be ruined. Shameful.
Husband wants to go get his children in another state as they currently are with their mother. They are my step children. I know this isn’t a good idea because they are safer where they are now.....
What are you doing for your Mom on Mother’s Day? I know most of you will be panicking in a month so let’s get the ideas going now

I’ve been planning to resign next week but my manager has left on premature maternity leave. The level above is on vacation. What is the best way to go about this?
Been seeing so many posts on generations- i mean millennials eat avocados coz thats all they can afford, GenXers have disappointed both pessimists and optimists, Baby boomers fucked it up for everyone
Any parent opted for the $5k dependent benefit ? Will they allow us to reduce the amount? 🙆🏾♀️ Schools are closed in GA through end of April. I won’t reach the $5k. Is COV19 a life event?
Just had my 2nd baby after starting a new job. Was denied FMLA bc it hasn’t been a full yr. How nervous should I be about lay offs since I don’t have equity w/the company? PPD during a pandemic sucks.
I feel momentarily defeated. I wish my parents were more encouraging. I’m in the process of buying my first home, which feels overwhelming and incredibly lonely as I’m going through this without their guidance or support. I felt so hopeful and excited to share with them that I was preapproved by a lender (an important step). My mother seemed annoyed and my father immediately began rattling off every possible thing that can go wrong. He critiqued the home, the cost, down payment, you name it.
Not 12 weeks pregnant yet, but I know my work is getting affected because of the exhaustion I’m not able to give it my 100%. Should I hold off til 12 weeks to bring it up to engagement team while on busy season? Or get out now so they can get another resource?
Has anyone had a baby as a senior (post-MBA level)? How was it being a mom with less tenure at the firm? Did you stay? How’d you make it work? I’m an older senior (34) and looking to try this year..
Not exactly womens fashion but what can i get for a friend who's having a baby in a few weeks? It's a girl, but I think it would be nice to include a small gift for my friend too since she probably will get baby presents from others too.
Had a mommy breakdown. In-laws come over every Sunday and constantly make comments during/resist my 10 month olds bedtime. Hes a sleep champ, but the deviation from his schedule by 10-15 mins makes it harder for him to fall asleep. I feel uncomfortable pushing back on my FIL when he picks up the baby and legit takes him when I say it’s bedtime. Husband apologized and is supportive but how do you recover after a frustrated/overwhelmed random mommy cry? I feel so drained and hubby is trying to ..
Ladies, is there anyone that has splurged on (or made it an integral part of their budget) - hiring a personal chef. I think of it more and more of less and less of a luxury. I cook well. First child and female in my culture means I've been cooking since 12/13 years old for the whole house. I was always resentful of how it was 'my responsibility' to do this and missing out on the things everyone else was doing (chilling, hanging out, tv, nothing) while I was in the kitchen. Now as a 30+ adult
If you recently gave birth, what gift would u want? I don't want to send anything for the baby as I'm assuming the child probably has everything it needs. I was thinking a case of wine as i feel if i had a baby i would eventually want to have a drink very soon but any ideas would help. Thanks so much!!
Hey ladies. I need your opinion on something. I’m planning my wedding and deciding what to do for the father daughter moments. My dad passed away when I was four, so I would like my uncle to (cont.)
Need to vent but, how can people be able to afford a house that can only eat 25% of their monthly income? we live in a HCOL area and the houses in a good school districts are +400K (these houses are 1 hour away from DC too).

How do we let women get fair opportunities to the top when women bosses themselves allow junior female coworkers to be exploited for their gender to please clients?
Was able to get an interview through someone here. He was part of two separate interviews I had with the company. Unfortunately after the final interview I didn’t get the offer. Would it be appropriate to reach out to them thru here again asking for feedback?
New to home purchase. Is there a significant tax benefit to having a home office? I have a spare room I can convert into a home office but I usually work out of my bed or a couch.
Transferring from US to UK. What are the standard benefits you get as a big 4 senior manager/director? Like phone? Car? Fitness allowance?
Has anyone else gone from Big 4 to industry for work life reasons then returned to a midsize firm? What was your biggest challenge and how did you overcome it?
For all those 2015+ grads who went into litigation...have you tried a jury trial? Not talking about having very little to do with the file and then sitting at counsel table but more like seeing a file from the start and going all the way to trial. It just seems like everything settles nowadays. I wanted to go to trial for several cases but often find the client would rather settle.
What's your answer to the "tell me about yourself" interview question? I feel bored when I say mine.
First off, let me say that I’m not American, pretend to be or understand being American. I’d like to know why is healthcare such a big deal? I understand it is important but why is it a big of a deal as it is? It’s ranked above so many other things in terms of importance. I ask because until I started working, I’ve never ever had any form of insurance and although unideal, never really struck me as such a big deal. Are Americans really going to doctors, hospitals and buying medication that much?

Have a Strategy & Operations associate interview with a VC based startup in a high COL. I’m 2 YOE and the YOE required is 3-5. If they ask my targeted salary range, what should I ask? I wanted to say 100-130k but I can’t tell if that’s unrealistic
Anyone have tips for salary negotiations? Was offered 20k base less then what I asked for, but offered 10K sign on bonus. Willing to trade sign on for increased base. Overall do love the company so plan on accepting regardless.
Does anyone live in San Jose? What’s the city like? Is there an inferiority complex with SF so close? Want to know about Transportation/Safety/COL vs NY/food scene.
