What's the best way to announce a broken engagement to family? Driving to my parent's for dinner and I haven't told them yet. So nervous they'll be disappointed :/
What’s everyone wearing to the office these days?? Im one of the lucky pwc 100% virtual folks and have a lunch with our group leaders tomorrow in Boston. Im fairly curvy and large booty/boobed. What is appropriate? Last time I dressed for work it was just a top where my shoulders seemed appropriate 😅. Do jeans still work? Omg what about shoes… I wear moccasins everywhere 😱 I’ve also since had another baby and just man, im feeling overwhelmed now. Help! Picture ideas appreciated
What is the purpose of up or out? I guess consulting is a pyramid scheme. Work the analysts and turn baby turn

Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.

Help!! My husband and I are about to move to a new state bc I got a new (and significantly) better job, and we were planning on moving at the end of the school year as do not disrupt my stepdaughters pre school (she ends in June). Her previously uninvolved, biological birth mother just served my husband papers saying she wants visitation again - she “stepped away from being a parent” at the start of COVID when she was arrested for attacking her then boyfriend’s wife.

If you have a nanny, what does and doesn’t she do? In particular in the household? We have a nanny who is great with the kids, but I am increasingly annoyed by her lack of service attitude towards us parents. E.g. the other day, I asked her to run the dishwasher such that she can clear it before she leaves in the evening and this was her reply: “Dishwasher isn’t part of my main duties as I am hired as a nanny!” Have you come across nannies with such an attitude?
Do you have small talks with your manager and directs? Feel like an as*hole for not liking it. My boss likes to start our 1 on 1s with topics around family, trip plans, hobbies, and other small talks. I don’t care how his weekend was. Or his baby.

He’s super nice and I like him a lot but I just don’t feel like we should try hard to get to know each other via small talks.

MIL turned up to visit newborn with a cold sore which in itself was very strange to me. - I was heading out so asked SO to ensure no handling or kissing of baby. Came home and she’s carrying him around and feeding him. What would you do- I’m horrified and feel angry but maybe I’m overreacting.

They were even praising him on how quickly he finished his lunch today. And told us also that he finished all his food as well.
What would you say is the best level (if there is one) to have a first baby? I’m currently a Manager trying to determine if I want to get to SM before having a baby. While SM would bring in more money, I’m also worried about juggling it all as a new SM and new baby.
