Suggest Anxious People! It was a light, funny read, but still sentimental at times

Just looked it up and it seems like a great read! Thanks for the tip 👍🏽

Ohh been meaning to check this book out. I recommend Leave the World Behind, Magic Hour, and The Great Alone.

like

The Great Alone by Kristen Hannah- This one was a bit more serious but wonderfully told Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson- This one is humorous and cute and strange and just a happy light read People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry- Super cute book, very light read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid- Amazing storyline, characters, loved everything about this book!

How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.

My grandparents never make an effort to ask about my life or how things are going. I’ve gotten a promotion, switched roles, etc and they’ve never asked about any new and exciting life events.

Am I being dramatic by not wanting to interact with them anymore? Do they get a pass to be rude because they’re old?
