How much is good enough to send my friend as money after she had a baby. We are not very close she didn’t even tell me she was preggie or anything but i just think it would be a noble thing to congratulate her 🤔

You should send a small gift not money

Get a cute outfit and a baby book and call it a day. Though honestly, if she didn’t even tell you she was pregnant, I wouldn’t send anything at all. Why are you trying to be noble if she’s not really your friend?

Can you ask if she has an Amazon wishlist from her baby shower or anything? Generally my family has been pretty good about providing those so I can send something small that I thought I was cute.

Just send her a card - if someone doesn't tell you they're pregnant, they are not really a friend. It has been a difficult year though with covid etc and so a card would just be a nudge if you want to renew the friendship.

Exactly what I was going to say!

I always spend around $50-$100 for small gifts, actually all small gifts which I like cost around this amount. I am buying what I would like to get for myself or for my family, even if it is not my best friend.

Need some advice/ thoughts: a year ago the the person I thought it was the love of my life dumped me. She went radio silent and hasn’t spoken to me since.

About three weeks ago people stated posting summer get together pics and she didn’t comment on any of them. And then another classmate posted a Muslim holiday post…no comment. And she always comments on those. Continue:

Hi Fishes!!
I’ve offer of 21 LPA from Barclays and my joining is in 3 weeks. I’ve 5.6 years of experience in Abinitio and current CTC is 14.5 LPA.
Is this the maximum Barclays can provide for my skillset?
In HR discussion, they mentioned that I should not come with any counter offer, but I’m feeling that I’ve not done good in HR discussion.
Keeping in mind that I still have 3 weeks and Barclays is my preferred organisation, please suggest what to do. Is this best offer or should I renegotiate?
