Anyone have suggestions for holiday gifts for their secretary? I am a first year associate and one of several attorneys she works for. I have not been with the firm very long and haven’t asked her to do too much (so I don’t know her very well to get a personalized gift) but would like to send her something. Thanks!

My SO’s family invited me on a European vacation and I’m going. However, I am terrified of telling my mother. My parents aren’t the most financially stable. My mom has a lot of regret about how her life turned out and often exhibits a lot of toxic jealousy toward people with more money than them. She especially is jealous of how others get to travel. I’m worried that telling her will make her feel shitty, uncomfortable, and like she can’t keep up with her potential future in-laws … (1/2)

My firm’s IT (especially system saving and file locating function) is so bad 😐😞 and they keep doing updates no one asked them for just to mess with the stuff we already got a hang of without doing anything about the issues we actually need fixed. Anyone else in a similar boat? Do you bill the client for the time it takes to fix the IT issue (or IT inefficiency generally, like time taken to find a file in a convoluted system)? Or is that supposed to be our non-billable time?
