Just started a new gig this week and the workload is slow, so I figure we should make the most of this downtime. My teammate and I haven’t worked together on anything yet. We’ve talked on zoom before and have texted and called occasionally. I’m hoping we can become familiar with each other and get that creative back and forth going. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for activities or creative exercises?

My work partner has a toddler and frequently misses meetings or goes on mute due to kid-related things. They also have to disappear around 6pm for a few hours bc of kid. Even if/when they can chat later in the evening, they’re usually pretty checked out or I just don’t feel like brainstorming at 10pm. Long story short, I feel like I’m picking up a lot of the slack due to their inability to be around, but I also feel bad because obviously parenting is hard. Can anyone relate?

If I get one more Zoom message that says "I'm trying to Teams you" I swear to all that is holy I will set fire to my laptop and yeet this brick to Bosnia. That's like FaceTiming me and asking me to log into skype. Should I be on the lookout for an email that your carrier pigeon is on its way with an urgent message?

How are parents keeping 5-6 yr old kids entertained. My kid is watching tv for 2-3 hrs each day and not at all participating in study. Kiddo is bored talking with classmates and friends, building legos and toys. Even school opens i doubt this age group really have patience to be on zoom calls. Looking for ways to keep kid busy other than digital media.

I am totally exploiting the “threat” of COVID to avoid going to a monthly CLE that I am supposed to be attending in person. The meeting is going on, live, in person, no masks, etc. But they still offer a zoom link. So, I’m streaming it at home (mic and camera off) while I clean the kitchen, make food, eat, and post this confession. Totally used it as an excuse to come home early and not have to go way across town in traffic.

Partners, what would make you skip the Q&A portion at the end of an interview?

Should I take this as a rejection or could there be other reasons?
