They just don’t want to lighten the mood by playing soft music 🎶. Need to keep the frustration levels high

I’m guessing the music is functional. Reduce boarding time by preventing conversations and such.

Is it normal for you to ever be “ghosted” by your administration? I feel like I’m constantly emailing, calling, texting, and meeting with them and nothing gets done. As soon as I leave their office, I’m ignored. If I email/text them a question or request, I’m ignored unless it benefits them. This is at a district where I travel between 3 schools and have 3 principals. They’re all like this and communication is especially important since I have to travel.

Non-accounting rant…Our lease is up at the end of April and we recently got our new lease contract. All of a sudden, the leasing company is requiring renter’s insurance. It’s apparently a new requirement for all new and current residents. It’s definitely a good thing to have, but isn’t there some sort of requirement for landlords to communicate big changes to leases in advance and not just stick it on the lease and hope everyone reads it? It seems kinda predatory and sneaky.

I recently left big 4 to take a private equity role at a large firm. In my offer letter they included a “target bonus rate” which seemed a bit low for the role and firm based on my knowledge of the firm. Wonder if anyone has encountered a clause like this before? My honest impression was that it was written in more like it was a conservative estimate if things are very mediocre performance wise by me and the firm but obviously I don’t want to overset expectations. Has anyone else seen this?
