It is the nice thing to do, and if it keeps the relationship in a good place - it's worth the $100

Don't do it just because we say you should. Do it if you feel right about it. The fact that you didn't right off the bat shows that it didn't really sit well at the time ...

Always good to offer, but their insurance might cover it. It’s a super nice gesture. But on the other hand....they willingly signed up to play. Cause and effect

Currently going for a job interview because my firm is imploding (one partner and one associate leaving). Super nervous bc it’s my first in person interview in years. This will be my second interview, the first zoom interview went well!

Any helpful tips on how to handle this? I can’t seem to calm my nerves. Probably bc I’m scared of actually getting an offer and having to quit my current job… even though i cannot stay.
