I've BEEN the fat woman offered a seat on the train once. It was so embarrassing. I took the seat though. 😅

I considered asking one time. Decided it wasn't worth it and just ignored it. Tough to tell sometimes

You did the right thing - she needed it more, doesn't matter if she was fat or pregnant.

This is why London Transport give away "baby on board!" Badges for free. The British can't deal with the embarrassment so we have to wear signs to indicate it's ok to offer us a seat.

I’m 37 and on medication that I would have to be off if I wanted to have a baby. I also have a weird undiagnosed physical abnormality. Nobody knows of it was a genetic mutation or due to a virus. However I am very happy still with my physical appearance. I have no husband, boyfriend, or partner and don’t want one. I make upwards of 140k and would like a baby at some point. Is 44/45 too late? Am I crazy for thinking I can get donor sperm, briefly get off my meds, and have a healthy baby?

3: try a 3rd party - my industry is hot right now, I’m talking with Salesforce and a few other big players

Do you think the following situation is a positive thing or could ruin my career? In my first case back from maternity leave, and first case during COVID, I was billing close to 300 hours a month.

It seemed like I would continue billing close to 300 a month for the indefinite future due to staffing. I cried to a partner about it and the partner was very understanding, but now (cont’d)
