Daycare costs as much as rent and you’re giving a cash gift on top of that?!?!

Planning on giving $50 each. These people look after my kid so I want to err on the side of being generous.

These responses are surprising to me. We gave $150 to each of his two old teachers at the end of the summer (he was with them from March until end of August). We will probably do the same for holiday gifts for the new teachers but wasn’t sure if that’s even enough.

This became more of a thing when teachers stopped making a living wage. Give as much as you can afford. My parents are both teachers and I was as well before law school. I would love to be teaching now but honestly can’t provide for my kids on that income. Your money will go to good use.

$100 to each teacher.

For daycare, I do $100-$150 per teacher depending on care/access and $25-50 for floaters. $10-15 for admin. Daycare is expensive but these teachers see my kids more than I do so this is my insurance policy is how I see it 🙃 that my kids are being loved on extra while they’re at school. If it’s “real” school I’ve heard $25 per teacher is generally a “generous” gift.

The money goes to the owners not the teachers, who by some standards are not paid terribly well. They're at the very least *as* deserving as your building super.

Best Marriott in Atlanta? Persona travel

I found out today that after using a long distance moving company, we have bed bugs :( the company kept our items in their warehouse for weeks before delivering. When we opened the boxes, my boyfriend got bit but figured it may be a spider. Now we have seen multiple in the bed.

This is causing me so much more stress and anxiety. I can’t sleep… my skin is crawling. Any advice?

I’ve always been super passionate about my job, even though I realised I’m not saving the world with advertising. But since my dad got sick, I totally lost my spark. I get my job done, but it costs me so much energy just writing a mundane newsletter. It feels like advertising lost its whole purpose for me, since I’ve been confronted with “real life problems” instead of client problems. Anyone got any ideas how to get out of that rut again? (btw: I’m a German not an English copywriter)

I've heard you shouldn't quit because of another employee. Two times in my career managers have tried to get me fired to cover up their own incompetence or mistakes. I played it well and they ended up being fired. They were very abusive to staff.
