Really? Cmon lol... Yes, it’s possible. Talk to your cc and lead.

For sure. Just talk with the partner in charge and tell the you don’t think you’re a fit and don’t want to put the project at risk.

You're clearly not someone who works in the federal space.

Yes - though depending on the specifics and who can backfill (if necessary) it can take weeks or longer to roll off in some cases. Please just come to the table with realistic expectations that take into account your needs as well as the project's.

Long Post : I have a divorced female friend that I have known for over 15 years and consider as a sister. For the past couple weeks because I was on the bench and bored we talked about an hour+ often, especially when I am walking and need company. My wife went through my T mobile call history and mad because I'm talking to her too often and too long. She knows the friend as well and we all hangout on multiple occasions. Am I doing something wrong here? Or my wife is just insecure?
