The one day I can be productive and work we are hit by energy blackouts from the winter storm... so I guess I can't trade or work today 🤷‍♂️

Well at least it only affects your actual job since the stonk market is closed anyway!

Yeah, I am pretty disappointed in myself not rolling my weekly CSPs and CCs. I forgot about the long weekend because my job doesn’t have today off. But it’s nice to have a day to work without the market running on the other laptop.

I appreciate your concern for them. Somehow I managed to lead my team while tra... err, WORKING from home last year to beat our targets and get a couple people promotions.

I didn’t say I wasn’t doing my job. Just said I could focus on it more today.

Wait why. Oh yea President’s day. Yet I still have to work...

Any advice on how to tell your current employer you’ve accepted an offer for another position & are leaving the company??
I’ve been at a small mktg agency for over a year & work closely with the CEOs, two middle aged men who are a blast to work with. The caveat: I’m underpaid, there’s no room for growth / promotion (nor any recognition ever) & the work environment is toxic. They’ll never see this coming, I have a lot of clients / responsibility & I feel guilty for leaving.
Help!
