Do you ladies wear makeup at work? I was in a rush today and went into the office bare face and one of my male colleagues asked if I was sick. Great now I feel even more self-conscious at work!
An obese person asked for my seat in the shuttle bus because she needs to be in the front due to her physical limitations... 🤔 is that a disability?
My school deliberately cut the number of classes that the specials teachers teach so that we could be building subs for quarantined and sick teachers (we are hybrid). So... I teach fewer classes (which is a relief because specials teachers teach way more classes than core teachers normally) but I'm pulled for most of my planning periods to babysit classes. I need my planning periods so I can redo my ENTIRE curriculum... and I just feel unappreciated, used, and nothing more than a babysitter.
My senior has a very "my staff works hard so that I don't have to" attitude and I'm kinda sick of it.

Hey guys! Went to college with full intention of getting into medical school. Graduated right before the pandemic which gave time to think long and hard about going to med school. Decided I was doing it for all the wrong reasons, and am trying to pivot into consulting. I’ve reached out to hundreds on LinkedIn, which lead to a few referrals, but have heard nothing back from any firms. Anyone willing to help me out with some advice and guidance?
I finally got round to taking that second dose of the Pfizer Vaccine and God .......what an interesting experience...the chills the next day had me thinking I was actually sick. How rough was the second dose for you? ( First dose early December 2021 and Second 20 January 2022) PS: To those asking why I took long to take the vaccine...I relocated to another country in the middle of the pandemic and could not get the vaccine for free until I become a resident.
I haven't taken a single vacation or sick day in over a year. I'll lateraling to another firm next month (pending conflicts). Would it be in poor taste schedule a vacation prior to giving my two weeks notice? I love my group and I don't want to burn bridges.
So I live in a state that offers paid family medical leave and my company makes me manage applications with the state. I am supposed to get part of my paycheck from the state and part of it from short term disability (managed by Sedgwick who are THE WORST.) I received no guidance from HR on the type of leave I needed to apply for with the state so followed the instructions I was given by the state. Apparently I was supposed to file for a different type of leave and now no one is paying me…
The toughest part of my day is leaving my baby in someone else's care when he is sick. Balance it's such a unicorn. I am considering a LOA just to spend more time with my baby. I feel so guilty.

Anyone willing to offer a resume critique? I'm seeking to renter the workforce after a 2 year medical hiatus and want to make sure my summary section explains it well
In CA here. One of my friends reached out to me saying they submitted their notice (30 days) at their current employer who then pushed back saying they require 60 days notice? I’ve never heard of this before in my industry (tech), but is this something that is common/enforceable in the medical field? I’ve advised my friend to seek legal counsel, but wanted to see if anyone here would know if any claims against my friend would hold up in CA since we are an at-will state.

I'm done with this app. People are talking about that parents don't have the right to know if their kid wants to be called by a different pronoun and keeping things from parents. Makes me sick. I told them they're all fucked in the head. So I'll be booted soon. Good knowing some of you. Peace.

How do you feel about putting on hold your family expansion plans because of a recent promotion? Do you think it’s a normal thing to do? And if so, how long is the normal waiting period? Knowing that the parental leave is about 6 months!
Turning 32 and still an associate. I moved around a bunch, but I’m still pretty bummed being at this level and age. Should I head back to industry? My coach said I most likely will not be promoted after 2yrs being that I’m in an extremely niche area given my previous experience ☹️. I feel like moving to consulting was a bad idea for career growth.
