@OP you and me both! I have no idea why I LITERALLY CANNOT FUCKING STAND THEM AT ALL. My in laws are nice and mean well. I can’t quite unpack why they rub me the wrong way. I hope my future son or daughter in law doesn’t dislike me the way I do my in laws. Hang in there, you are definitely not a lone.

Started a new job. Met one of my coworkers and individual seemed nice. Then individual started making strange statements like “you can trust me if you want to vent” or suggesting I do questionable things since per individual “nobody cares”. Mind you I’ve only known the guy for like 2 weeks and he started making these weird comments. Found out individual didn’t get promoted and hasn’t gotten promoted to the role I’m in. Wondering if I’m overthinking or he’s after my job 🤣

Just venting. My husband is so much into watching his tv show that he is not at all interested in planning the baby shower or even in making the registry. It just feels that I am doing everything right now and his priorities are just around watching his TV show. I get that he needs his me time but our baby shower is few weeks away and we have not sent out the invite yet, do not have the registry finalized (I cannot do it as he wants to be involved or will make changes over my selection).

Does it matter which school you get your MBA from? I've been working for 5 years and want to go back and get my MBA. I've found an online program from two schools, one is higher ranked than the other but also more expensive, shorter time frame, and less data analytics concentration than the other. Does it really matter all that much WHERE I get the MBA from? I got my bachelors from the #5 public school if that helps.

Is anybody else staying in a toxic job/culture to build their resiliency or prove something to themselves?

Started new job (post-consulting) a year back and have seen little concern for people, constant leadership bullying, and demoralized colleagues.

However, at times in career I have felt too “soft” - not great with confrontation & only thrive in friendly environments. Is there logic in staying to build resiliency? (Or perhaps I should lower my expectation of humanity in business?)

I’m sorry to vent but I’m stuck in this situation where my senior is a racist. Her microaggression just drives me insane and she treats the other white guy staff so much better. I’m tired of this toxic working environment and have zero interest in audit anymore. I desperately need to get out of this but I’m still waiting for my H1B approval. Sometimes I just don’t know if I can keep working another day.
