I got a super small crack on my windshield last night (top right corner and smaller than a dime). Insurance covers it and offered to send someone over, but not until 11/15. Will it keep expanding from now until then if I keep driving? Don’t drive much, but still need my car occasionally. Thank you.

My toddler started getting really fussy during dinner and my spouse continued his conversation -not wanting to leave. I took the baby on a brief walk but that wasn’t really helping. Spouse still did not want to cut dinner short (we were already on dessert) and he kept his conversation going. I sat down and baby is grabbing plates (cont)

Big 4 🐠 - how were promotion raises like this year compared to ‘normal’ years at your firm?
How frequently should one expect or advocate for a raise at a small firm? I moved to a new firm (about ten lawyers) about two and a half years ago. After my first year I got a 20% raise following a brief and exclusively positive performance review. Its been about 17 months since then and silence. I have the general sense that the firm struggled a little financially during COVID and I don't want to seem ungrateful or greedy, but apparently the firm is doing well enough to hire more associates.
