TBH you’re probably the problem. Just because you are an SM doesn’t mean you no longer have to teach other employees.

I can see why you'd think this. But also I've seen many people who have a different working style and work ethic /attitude and they will never work the same as you'd expect. Because only skills you can teach and technical knowledge but not the personality.

Her writing skills are not great and she doesn’t have any sense of urgency in completing projects. I have always liked her personally so now getting to know her work product is a bit of a shock. I am struggling with not wanting to work with her anymore. I think I can maneuver her off of my projects somewhat effectively but also feel somewhat guilty about giving up on her. I just find her style of work so off putting that I don’t even want to coach her. Is that awful? It feels awful. 😬

I haven’t been in my apt since mid March. Is it fair to ask roommates to not have me pay for water and electricity? I’m fine with WiFi as that is fixed cost. But my usage for water or electricity is literally 0. What’s the best way to phrase this for them

Uber or Lyft for rewards? Lyft is $5 credit after 5 rides, but I can’t figure out Uber’s rewards. I must use my firm’s standard-issue green Amex, but paid to retain points if that matters
