Interviewing for an in-house role that is struggling to meet my salary requirements but they're, "willing to work with me." Ok. Sure. That's fine.

The recruiter is also asking for me to complete a writing assignment. Would I be doing too much if I sent my freelance rate?

Need some advice:
Boss and Partner came into town for two days last week. Most people got drunk, I did not, as I had 3 drinks over the 5 hours we were at dinner and then at the cigar bar.
Partner just kept saying he missed his family and couldn't wait to get home. Pretty great to see.
My Boss, (Senior Manager) made an inappropriate comment which I acted like I didn't hear and then I quickly left after that (I am quite aware I should have firmly put up my boundary right then and there)
