I woke up feeling particularly unmotivated a few weeks back and put on a suit for the day. Totally helped me refocus.

I personally don’t feel the need to look professional unless absolutely necessary – what’s the benefit here?

OP, I 💯 agree. I feel like a human by doing the little things to get ready.

This is what I am saying 👆 have not worn high heels around the house 🤣 but knowing 6 of my team will be on zoom at 8 am, I would like to shower and look nice and presentable. Makes me feel more productive. And if everything was in skype and phone only I am not sure I would be as motivated

Hello folks. How are you doing? I was wondering what are some of the funniest Zoom backgrounds you've seen. There's gonna be a contest in my office and it appears there will be an actual gift. I like gifts. I'm thinking of putting this one and just not show my face for most of the meeting. Any input is appreciated.

I recently moved out of my apartment complex 2 weeks ago and ended my lease early because I had to move for work. The leasing office calls me today and said they “forgot” to bill me for a $1200 rent concession I received when I first moved in (First Month free rent promotion). After looking the lease, I found the clause but I really don’t want to pay especially when they made the mistake on not billing me and are just now following up 2 weeks later. Advice? Ideas? Similar situations?
