Went to Tampa/Sarasota recently, compare to Boston they don’t give a shit down there lol. Bars and some nightclubs fully open with no one wearing a mask. Miami might be slightly more restricted but not nearly as much up north

My boyfriend is interviewing for a BDR role at SF (in Indiana). What’s the PTO for this position?

Thanks for starting this bowl. One of the things I find challenging is making small talk with coworkers about holiday plans etc, when you’re forced to explain that you’re not spending holidays with your family. They then launch into some “well-meaning” advice about life being too short and me only having one family. It’s hard to resist the urge to point out that this was not a decision I took lightly, and that they are severely out of turn. I’m tired of smiling and nodding 😒

Just lateraled to a new firm where the daughter of the group’s chair is also an associate in the group. I didn’t know this before taking the job as they have different last names. She’s in the same class year as me but keeps trying to assign me tasks (which are clearly her unwanted tasks) as if I’m her junior. I already have plenty of work assigned to me by the other partners and have been saying I don’t have the bandwidth but I see this becoming an issue in the future. Any tips on how to deal?

To all the new teachers out there- the most important thing you can learn is classroom management. I’m working with someone who doesn’t quite get it. Often lessons devolve into chaos. It seems to be as long as the kids are enjoying it - then it’s ok. You also need to learn is to help out - to help set up, help pick up, help in whatever ways are needed. Don’t wait to be asked. Put down the freaking phone and pay attention! Finally, try to learn from your coworkers. You don’t know it all!
