How much do you find yourself emotionally managing your coworkers, especially men who are senior to you? Trying to convince my boss to have some empathy and self awareness may drive me from this job.

All the time. It’s exhausting.


I sit on the leadership team of my office and I often find myself in heated talks during those meetings trying to remind white men that other people’s feelings are valid 😔


White men have issues.


🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️ I’m about to start working more closely with a man who is challenged in this space and have actually gotten the advice - “you’re great at this stuff. You’ll be able to make a difference in his attitude in just a few weeks, I’m sure.”

I have a coworker with a similar boss. She has tackled this by showing him how good doing the right thing would make him and the company look. So, yeah, if you can make the right thing seem like the right thing for them that seems to be pretty successful.

I’ve only ever seen white dudes throw fits. Multiple. Dudes. Having. Tantrums. Bosses, peers, creative, production, account. It’s wild. I still don’t know how to react or manage it so I typically ignore it and move along.

PSA - with the new inflation report today, the May 2022 IBonds rate will be 9.62% for 6 months. Anyone who has not maximized their IBonds investments should do it now in April. There is no better risk-free return anywhere in the world at this point.

Tier 1, so everything is going well professionally, but honestly starting to think I am just not that passionate about accounting in the work setting. I like my current group (the people are decent), but honestly I think the firm could stick me in any group and I would just continue doing the work. I currently do not feel a strong affinity for one area. Anyone else struggle with this? I feel like I am climbing the ladder because that's what society says you are supposed to do #lost&directionless


Random gripe…I can’t stand the word ‘throwback’. Blech! It’s like fingernails on a chalkboard.
