I’m a new associate to a T&E group, partner goes away on vacation and leaves me with a 706 to review and sign. The family is very wealthy. Decedent married for 60 years. Partner says it’s “just a DSUE election, decedent was ill for years, no assets.” Provides no records. Not even an admission the decedent owned a toothbrush. So I looked up the decedent’s home - it’s a joint asset. Partner was “surprised”, and still insists “no other assets”. I found file references to art and antiques.
I have a pyramid event tomorrow but I feel sick and I have a severe cold. Tickets have been purchased already, I am 100% certain it’s not covid because I took a test already. However, I don’t want to get anyone sick with cold. How do I handle this situation? Is it possible to let them know I can’t attend because of my cold even if the tickets have been purchased? I feel bad.
Just curious...for those that work at Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, social media companies...how do you limit your screen time? Are you so sick of social media at work that you don’t care about it when you get home? Do you let your kids have access?
Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?

Are there any lawyers that moved to healthcare tech (non-legal related positions)? That would include medical devices, AI, robotics, etc. Would love to learn from your experience. Parents always wanted me to become a doctor, so did I. However, did not do very well around blood. :)) Thank you!

Level of interest in midterms is 73% among seniors, 35% among young voters. If you’re sick of the country being run by old people scared of immigrants and “socialism,” be a voter. Make a plan NOW.
Team activity to go to a theme park. 10 weeks and haven’t told anyone at work. Pretending to feel sick or disinterested. I’ve already made up food poisoning to explain diet changes. Lies are tough!
I’m the one whose ex won’t pay for college - and I have an update. My ex texted me today that he and his wife are buying our son a car (!!) for Christmas. On the one hand, it’s one less expense for me. On the other hand, my ex won’t pay for college and he owes me at least $10K for previous medical expenses, but he can find money for a car - which is a “fun” expense that will get him brownie points with our son. Whatever - my son benefits, but talk about a “Disneyland Dad.” Ugh.
Full Focus How many of you work with at least 90% focus 12 hours daily like you do for finals back in undergrad? The SMs and Partners I've worked with appear to be fully invested in work all day. Do you increase your stamina to give 100% the higher up you go to CxO levels or MBB/FAANG, and people do not progress in career because of slacking?
Second week with at least one day with no hot water at the Westin. Feel bad complaining but it’s really annoying. Should I ask for points? Who do I ask? My ambassador?

I have applied to many internships in advertising specifically. One of my last choices post-interview got back to me before the others and I need to turn in a decision. Is it acceptable to accept a job offer but if one that is better comes around to revoke it (within a reasonable time)? My other options won’t be giving me an answer for another week.
