Last busy season, having worked 80 plus hours Monday through Friday, I was half asleep half awake when my roomate knocks at my open door and asks, hey EY, Do you have any containers I could borrow.

I get up, go to the kitchen and tell him, you can use blue and green container as the sample for your testing.

Him: what?

Me: use the blue container and the green container as the sample for your testing.

And I proceed to go to sleep. It was later in evening he today me what happened. Lol

My wife was informed a few weeks ago that she would be laid off as of end of year. She signed the paperwork and will be receiving a decent severance due to her tenure there.

Now the company is saying they may have some other work for her to do for a few months and they could extend her contract if interested. If she says no, is she still eligible for her severance since she already signed her paperwork?

Hi all,

I recently started working remotely for an IT consulting firm based in LA and NYC (400 EE). I joined at 65K with 3.5years experience and 5k bonus. I currently live in MN.

When I first joined, we had a head of HR with a comp of 170K and HR manager 100K. We are all remote. Now the company fired the head of HR and asked my manger and I to revise our comp and submit to accounting.

What is the right salary to ask for? since I have a lot of things to take care of now.

New here from 🇨🇦, and have an odd question about the health system here. I went to a Dr. for a fully covered standard appointment and swore I uploaded my insurance to their portal. I was laid off from my tech company a week later and lost benefits two weeks post that. THEN I get the full bill from the Dr. and they never billed my insurance or called for it if it was missing. Is this normal? The US system is crazy when it comes to billing! Never comes on time or correctly🫠

Laid off by my group and was given time to find a new gig. I found a new one and will be departing the firm in two weeks. The senior partner who hired me and for whom I’ve done majority of my work for is not speaking with me, ignoring my emails and requests for a call to inform him about next steps. My guess is they’re disappointed with me and feel like I’ve embarrassed them. How do I salvage this relationship? I’ve beaten myself up enough for my performance issues that led to this.

I’m officially depressed. Lost my job last month, family is aware of my situation and doesn’t care to reach out. I’m living out of my car to cut back. I haven’t landed ONE offer and am considering waitressing. I’m noticing I go to bed around 9/10, and wake up anywhere from 6:30-8:00 (this is a lot). The only parts of my day that bring me happiness are when I’m eating (I love food and I’m also a stress eater), and when I’m asleep (because I’m not actively aware of anything going on). 🥺
