My immigration lawyers went radio silent this week. I’m wondering if it’s a sign... I assume they will know if I’m let go?

immigration lawyers are always radio silent. 🤷🏻‍♀️

likefunny

They are usually radio silence. I don’t think they would have any details prior regarding lay-off. Shoot them another email with subject ad important!

First of all, doubt they’ll know. They only help the firm to get you work permission when the firm needs you. Secondly, they are probably overwhelmed by loads of questions arising from all these immigration restrictions imposed

No they do not know about layoffs in advance

Returned from sick leave and found out from other people at the office I totally messed up on a project that I worked on prior to sick leave. Now that my reputation has been ruined and facing an upcoming negative performance review. No one at the office stood up for me despite of positive work done prior to COVID or wants to hear what I have to say. I m bothered by this gaslighting practice both professionally and personally. I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.

My first experience with a Karen today. I was sitting today in my front yard with my pitbull leashed to a tree. This woman stopped in front of my house and said - as per city ordinance it’s illegal to leash dogs in the front yard and I need to hold the leash and I kid you not threatened to call cops on me. Mind you, my dog was passed tf out and its only fault was being a pitbull that Karen didn’t approve of. I told her ‘Call the cops, I dare you’ and started recording. She walked away grumbling.
