Does it have to be a material good? When I got my job at Google I did a whole spa day to myself instead. Congratulations on the promo!

If you’re looking for an experience I second the fancy spa day recommendations, if that is not for you, chartering a boat for Day/dinner with a close friends can be so fun (I’ve used Sail Away for a small group dinner and it was great).

Hey everyone, so my sister and her boyfriend have both gained about 60-70 pounds since COVID started. I’m getting very concerned for them and I’ve seen firsthand how they’re developed awful eating and drinking habits and they hardly ever exercise. I’m very concerned for them, but I have no idea how to talk about it with them and not make them angry or hurt. Any advice on how to have this difficult conversation?

This fight has gotten real! I’ve been offered a job, advertised as remote, but they want to have a blended program with teachers on campus. Small school, 10-15 to a class... maybe, masks ( I’ll have to ask if they’re mandatory), distancing and a continuous cleaning staff. Sounds great but I’m 62 with 5 underlying conditions! Have to negotiate a contract Monday... I’m hoping I’ll be able to work on-line as NV is one of the growing hotspots in this Pandemic!

I’ve been going through a tough phase at work and health wise and I’d taken an Leave of absence and I’ve been working with my therapist to deal with it. Everything was going okay up until my therapist lost her cool and yelled at me and called me names for wanting to extend my leave. She spent half an hour of the session just name calling and yelling at me and I’ve been pretty disturbed since then. Whatever her reasons may be, I do believe that her behavior was completely unprofessional

Everyone should openly share their salaries/wages with anyone who wants to know. It only helps other workers and is only bad for companies. Biggest company propaganda was getting the general public to think that’s it’s inappropriate to have salary transparency.
