Hi There, Can you tell what percentage variable pay is paid on an average in Hexaware and how good on-site opportunities for UK projects in course of time.

Have you ever lied about your salary? Because friends were making more or less? I told my partner I made a certain amount when we were just friends but now we're seriously dating and I can't keep up with pretending I'm making 270k. I'm barely netting 80k. Should I come clean? Or try and find a job that would give me more?

Confession time - I created a fake profile on LinkedIn with some software development experience (mostly stolen from my friends). This was done to just view people’s profiles pretty anonymously. Now I get interview requests from Google and other tech companies and I’m frankly very jealous.


Conspiracy theory: do you think James Iannazzo secretly wanted to kill his son? He picked a smoothie shop that serves smoothies with peanuts. There a 30 items on the menu, but he picked one of the three with peanut butter. He only mentioned no peanut butter, didn’t mention peanut allergy. As a father of a 17-year old son with allergy, he’s knows that containers might have traces of peanuts. After he got the drink, he could have done a quick check - peanut butter looks and tastes differen


How long did it take you to start feeling settled in your new role?

Always feel like I’m going to get fired (for not picking up fast enough) but need to remind myself that I’ve only been in this new role for 4 months


I’m sitting in a kiddie pool in my front yard drinking beer and hiding from my 2 kids (5 and 9), who are inside non stop bickering, whining, and crying and I don’t feel guilty about this…at all.


Forgot that I had a monthly video call with my team and had 4 minutes to SCRAMBLE to look appropriate on camera. 🤦🏼‍♀️

When I said I wanted a challenge at work, this wasn’t what I meant! 😮‍💨 I see drinks in my future. 🍸🥃👀

Men with deep strong voices….wow. Please narrate every naughty book on earth.


I decided to use stories posted in this bowl to write sitcom script. Thank you all OPs.


Is cheating at a bachelorette/ bachelor party a norm?


I don't take myself seriously to make people feel comfortable around me. But then they don't take me seriously either 🥲


Pretty sure I had an anxiety attack this morning....never had one prior to today. Public accounting is killing my slowly.


What’s your most ridiculous take?


Anyone know any folks on the brand side for Corona? They are one of my white whale brands to work on. Was down to the final 2 for their site creation one time but lost. 🙀


maybe i see the world differently than most people but the way this bowl reacts to posts about infidelity is WILD to me. if the person i love happens to hook up with somebody else, n then chooses to TELL me… it’s reason for a deep conversation. maybe even couples therapy. but it doesn’t immediately taint our bond in a way that means we need to break up, get divorced, etc.

yous all have some weird hair triggers about sex. and a misunderstanding of the essence of physical intimacy if you ask me.


Share with me funny jokes, I am bored.🥺
