Is anyone else hoping for an insane blizzard to hit mid-next week so they have an excuse not to drive downstate to spend Thanksgiving with their extended family? Some of my family's FB posts since last week's elections tell me it's going to be a long holiday weekend.

Went off on my FIL a few weeks ago for saying the most racist stuff I’ve ever heard and now I don’t have to travel for thanksgiving 😊

Christmas shopping list got shorter ?

I told that side of the family I'd be in town but we will be having a separate thanksgiving. And told them why. You are an adult, too, you don't have to endure time with people who don't enrich your life.

If no blizzard you can pretend you just got called into a last-minute work thing or something? I’ve definitely worked on Thanksgiving before…

Sorry, I’m heading that direction too. Fortunately, my immediate family doesn’t talk about politics too often. We typically watch sports, play with the kids, etc. I know it’s very very very apparent change in beliefs from here to there though and see it in my friends/extended family in the area.

You can ride high and make fun of your relatives for supporting losers

Just remember when they say they want to secede remind them kindly that 40% of the people in their city voted for the other guy… unless you’re going south of 72, then godspeed.

I want to reach out to an exec at the startup I just left to get coffee. We have a good relationship and I already asked him to get coffee when I told him I was leaving a few weeks ago, but he was on vacation so I told him to let me know when he got back. He’s back now. I know he won’t reach out to me. Am I overthinking? Should I just reach out again (“double text” lol)

Is it going to be worth the pain to go through fertility?

I have a 5-year-old and we recently moved in with my boyfriend (40s, divorced, no kids). He’s trying, which I appreciate, but he has very little patience or tolerance for a rambunctious kid. I have a demanding career so my bf has encouraged me to lean on him more, but I feel like he makes it obvious he finds my son annoying. He just has no parental instinct and they’re clearly not comfortable around each other so I never ask for his help or push them to spend time together. I want us to be a happy blended family but even I don’t know the right thing to do at this point to get there. Any advice?

What are most company standards for vacation time and PTO for small companies? We do 10 days after 1 yr, 15 days after 2yrs 15days after 5yrs and 20 days after 10yrs.

I was just told I am hard to work with. I know I should be grateful to have a job. I just got back from maternity leave and I had to keep by 4 month home with me while I work. My husband is not home has to go out to work. I literally been begging them to balance out my workload. And I got told I’m hard to work with. I’m going to shut up keep my head down for now. I would have been gone but pandemic has got me down. I’ve been so stressed and sad. I know a lot of people would love my job.

Hi all, so I found a platinum ring (which I assumed it's an engagement ring as it has dates and initials engraved on top.) And a Divvy tag (I have no idea what it was until I googled it. Apparently it's a bike sharing service in Chicago) in a briefcase I ordered online. I was thinking of returning the item back to the store but that wouldn't help the person who lost the ring. Attached is a picture of them.

What should I do now?
