Sounds like some of your colleagues might be a little envious that you actually used a personal day off and took care of yourself and for whatever reason they do not feel they can to. The funny thing is that they can!

Personal days are yours to use. Use them how you see fit. Sorry for those who bad mouth. What is it they gain? Hope you feel better.

Don't they use theirs? They forfeit a bargained piece of their contracts? Something to get curious about. Lean into it, gloriously own your self care mental health day. Everybody needs mental health days!

I used a personal day on Monday because I needed it. Many people think “oh, MUST BE NICE.” but that is simply their unmet need of rest speaking out. It IS nice to take a day off when you need it 😂 not only is it nice but it is imperative to our own health and wellness.

I’m sorry to hear that.

Sorry you are going through this.

There will always be those who are going to be a “Negative Nancy”. It’s hard, but try to ignore them.

I’m taking a personal day this week, for the first time in 4 years. And that’s insane. They’re ours to use, contracted, and it’s no ones business but yours what the reason for it is.

I’m sorry . I hope you’re feeling better.

My dad is a bit financially strict (borderline financially abusive) to my mom, so I want to set up a way to give her allowance money regularly on the DL. Would this be best done by setting up a credit card account for her? Or a separate checking account to which I deposit money every month? How would you do it? TIA!

New to freelance: 40 hours/week in contract but put on a high profile project that requires weekend work or overtime. Bill? If so, how would you go about it since the contract is 40 hours/week? Should I just include it in the invoice/timesheet or should I also plan to have a conversation with my supervisor or HR or Accounts Payable beforehand? Also keeping in mind that I hope to get contract extended, which is in my contract [tentative].

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
