I hate how my boss always goes on loooong monologue. What could take an hour of meeting turns into 3 hours.

Ask your boss to be more inclusive. Everyone replies with their thoughts and ask him to discuss each bullet and share thoughts from everyone equally. Give each person a set amount of time to express their points including the boss. Let the boss know that experimenting with something like this allows for a more inclusive environment and a better idea of his teams point of view.

Is it fair game to report someone’s particularly polarizing IG posts to HR? Was friendly with this person but now I wouldn’t ever want to work with them after some of the things they’ve posted.

My client is a bully and treats me badly. He forces me to work till late by giving unrealistic timelines. Sometimes I end up working 18 hrs a day. From past 6 months, I haven't taken a proper vacation and now when I decided to take a 3 day leave during Thanksgiving, he questioned that. I'll take the leave anyway but all this impacts my mental health. I can't quit due to visa issues. Any tips to handle a bully?

There are many reasons why people in the working world are not direct when speaking. They are one of the following:

* They pretend they are experts
* They are inexperienced
* They are full of themselves
* They don't know what they are looking for
* They love to talk

Even if these people have good intentions, be careful of them. Your time is valuable, and the best thing for you to do is to be direct back at them.
