My therapist during future retirement puzzled why I have PTSD from just corporate America: “How were you able to express frustrations and your emotion during your job in a healthy way?” Me: “Slack only offered so many negative emojis.”

Hello All, I was visiting Fishbowl's LinkedIn account and saw it was highlighting particular bowls. Would it be OK to ask for the Women in Tech bowl to be highlighted? The reason being is October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I'd think this would be tie in really nicely. Maybe we can have a "paint fishbowl pink" initiative? I'm trying to get one done at my work with Pink Zoom backgrounds, etc. Thank you for your attention!

Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.
