Hey 🐠 friends I guess wanted to ask if any of you face severe anxiety over your parents ageing and overreact over very little things as a result? But equally if they really have been getting older and weaker and falling ill v v frequently how do you cope?
Ladies, question - am negotiating for a new job and wondering what’s “normal” for # of annual vacation/sick days?
My buddy is a doctor and the higher ups told them all that they better start preparing mentally to turn elderly/higher risk people away... medical people are really concerned about this. Ugh
Customer : you should be getting on your hands and knees like a dog to beg for my business
Manager : sorry for my front desk upsetting you well comp your 90 minute session
Me : gets coached for not breaking policy and giving the lady a massage that’s positive for covid so I told her to rebook
Is it Mandatory to submit medical certificate on onboarding day?

I have to visit offc for onboarding.
I am trying to move from my farming role back to an outbound prospecting position. I have a couple screening calls for some pretty awesome companies and I would love some pointers on how to beat the objection that I have only been in my farming role since June. How would you sell the fact you want to go back to SDR, I am sick and tired of non revenue generating activity and miss having a list to attack.
My partner of 5 years ended our relationship last night. I’m shattered and feel absolutely sick, and I know the healing isn’t going to be easy. We were on the verge of an engagement and I was ready to spend the rest of my life with him.
I don’t know how to approach work during this time. I think I can get by, but I’m definitely not 100%. Should I talk to my boss about it? My team is close-knit and comfortable around each other, but I don’t know if it’s “appropriate.” What would you do?
I saw a survey that the #1 reason people are changing companies is culture. In interviews, 95% of people say they want a collaborative environment. Talk to each other.
I’m regards to saving medical receipts to be reimbursed from your HSA at a later date: how do people maintain receipts over time?
The partner in my department ‘threw me under the bus’ with an issue on a case which was outside of my control. Without going into detail, it was a big client and she was saving herself. Understandable but naively, I was expecting better.
I'm a lead medical assistant in Chicago, I make about $23 per hour. Is that average for a lead ? I have seen post for a non lead they make about the same as I do. I have 12 yrs experience.
I am so glad for this bowl. I think I have Covid and it sucks to use my sick days all up. If I said this in the main teachers bowls I would have a bunch of trumpers mocking me for being vaccinated and masking
Anyone have advice on getting medical expert witnesses? In NC if anyone practices here. None of my client’s doctor will call us back.
I landed a new role a couple of months ago. I feel like I'm doing okay workwise, but I'm the only woman at my firm and the lack of real social connection is wearing on me. The men are nice enough, but I never feel like I'm actually part of the team or can connect with anyone there. Any advice?
Thinking of pulling plug and starting my own small consultancy. Have a list of potential clients and am just running some numbers. I am family of 5. What should I budget for medical insurance?
When you do a cut and you’re super excited and proud. And then the director weighs in and it gets even better! And then... the client makes it worse. And worse again. And worser still. Sigh.
Does anyone have advice/ experience with disclosing or advocating for your ADHD support needs in highly toxic environments? Or getting formal disability accommodations?
I’m on a VERY toxic project where I really need accommodations but I am scared there will be repercussions if I personally disclose my ADHD like I have on past projects.
I submitted an HR request for accommodations and it’s been ignored for over a week.
I really can’t take another week of spending every day crying.
What happens to my FSA medical and daycare funds if I leave the firm? Is the remaining funding for the year billed to me? Does the plan just stop where it is?
A colleague and I have been getting a lot of nudges about ACD positions, so I’m doing my homework here. What should my salary expectations be, and what % of my time should I expect to spend on coaching/mentoring?
How are different civil engineers doing across different states? MD is slow right now on work
A friend was told their firm will cut ties EOY if certain things don’t improve. Friend had planned to quit in the next year anyway (to start their own business), so there is no real incentive to bend over backwards. Friend’s goal is to keep the income for a little longer, but to minimize conflict / headaches. What’s the best move here? Wait until EOY and take the severance? Give 6 / 9 / 12 months’ notice now? Is there such a thing as too much notice? Could too much notice backfire?
Besides holding BTC, how do you think about allocation between ETH, ADA, SOL, DOT, LINK? This is within the context of smart contracts, lower gas fees, network effects, etc. Essentially, how do you diversify amongst ETH and the other altcoins?
Seven year inch is a real thing? My SO and I are going to celebrate our eighth anniversary. We’ve been through a lot in the first half of the relationship. Things are great now, and honestly nothing to complain about, other than the occasional petty stuff. I find myself bored sometimes and start to wonder what if… how do I get over it?
Doing Oracle with Deloitte... but got reached out to join Infor ERP.. Saw someone briefly post about Infor but can't find it.. Is pay bump from 80k+ AIP to 95k + 25k annual bonuses be worth?

Will COVID life teach us anything?
Im working at a big multi-product company and we're having 5 dedicated product teams, however, teams are working in silos. Each team's has its own process, design system, technology etc. We identified that most of the teams use and need components that were already conceptualised, designed and developed, for our other products, and we are starting to create a global set of components, a global design system that we will use on all our products. What is your approach?

Anyone have multiple FT jobs? I'm looking about to land a new primary FT job, as my current job is very very slow, doesn't really have any projects for me, and could end at any time (with a 30 day notice).
Where there any legal issues? (The two companies area in different industries so no competition). How did you manage both? The new company knows I'm still employed, should I quit the first or keep it as long as I can manage both? Any bad vibes or feelings of unprofessionalism? TIA

I need some help seeing how reasonable this is. I brought my partner to a work function and asked him if it was okay that we don’t have PDA (him touching my back for instance) in front of my coworkers because it makes me uncomfortable to have that in a work environment. He took it as me being ashamed of him and rejecting him. Is this an unreasonable ask from me?
I feel like I won’t ever find love. I’m approaching 30 (a few more years) and it’s been a horrible experience for me when it comes to my love life.
Any others in their late 20s feeling the same way? I’m also so focused on my career now that I get annoyed these days…
6 more months, just 6 more months ... 🤝
On this day, national coming out day, here is my confession.
Being raised Mormon I found I always thought I just wanted to be other women, but now I know better.
I AM NO LONGER JUST AN ALLY, I AM BISEXUAL.
It’s easier to say that anonymously but I hope this time next year I can say it un-anonymously.
Can someone explain to me why is it a huge turn off for me when someone cares too much!! I feel like they are pretending!
3 yoe but I feel I'm unnecessarily harsh when I speak, especially when challenging different opinions etc... Some may say I speak with confidence or expertise but I don't want to be a dick. I am not directing it to the person just the content they're presenting.
How do I overcome this without repeatedly committing it and then apologizing afterwards? Just a few days ago I kinda ripped into the cloud team for presenting a cost model that we didn't need. Felt really bad since they "didn't know".
I’ve never been so excited to sit in a Chili’s

Trying to help a friend
My partner and I agreed that we’d start trying to conceive but not that I’ve stopped my birth control I feel so paranoid and anxious. I keep thinking of all the things that I wanted to get down before a baby and now I’m nervous that it’s not the right time.
The amount of times I accidentally leave my gas cap open and I don’t remember until I’m on a freeway. Anyone have any tips on how to remember to close it 🥺

Anyone who used to be anti vaxx or vaccine hesitant that was persuaded to get the vaccine? I love my sister and worried about her not getting the vaccine because she believes it causes infertility. She lives in a highly unvaccinated population and has been frustrated with me for not doing indoor activities with her without us both masked because I am very worried about breakthroughs with the Delta variant. I am also on an immunosuppressant due to IBS, so I've made it clear that I'm (continued)
