The most perfect girl I went to school with and played tennis with is engaged. I’ve had a successful life post-college and I’m really grateful for what I have. I’m embarrassed to even say I unfollowed her on social media because it made me really sad seeing how happy she is with her family and partner. I know comparison doesn’t make sense and it takes away from what I have for myself but it’s hard not to

Mindtree HR called me when I was in a meeting in my office laptop, I cut the call while ringing, replied with text message "will call you back", she replied "ok", sent me an email asking for 3 months payslips, PAN card, etc. I called her after 30 mins, but she is cutting my call twice and didn't call back. I am not having good feelings about this, shall I look for other companies? Or is this the natural for service company HRs to behave ?

Question for those who have police officers in their family / close friends: what is motivating them to show up and protect the street during this time? Is it they are worried about their job if they don’t or they feel they have a civic duty. The amount of hate that is being given to ALL cops as one entity and the violence just seems like I would not show up if I was cop.

My husband’s uncle died this morning. My husband is pretty distraught as he was close to him. His family is in the U.K. He wants us to attend the funeral because he doesn’t want to go there alone. He hasn’t seen his family in 7 years. I see two problems (1) My passport expired and I don’t know if I will get it renewed in time even expedited. (2). The whole Covid thing and going into quarantine upon arrival. Suggest to ask the family to skype the funeral but may be too insensitive? WWYD?

Sorry if this is a bad question but I’ve tried to google and found conflicts. I’ve seen a lot on social media to not use the term “person of color” when referring to a black person. I’ve also seen companies touting diversity on Instagram like “30% black, 55% person of color...etc.”. I’m wondering, what ethnicity/ races are they referring to when they say “people of color”? I’m guessing black +others? Is it everything non white (Latino, Asian, middle eastern etc)? Is it only some Asians?

Let’s talk working hours…I work in NYC and while I may be susceptible to more of a work grind, I ignore my boss after a certain hour of the night (let’s say 9pm, I’m not even acknowledging until the following morning unless we’re in the middle of hellfire). He has no problem sending chats and emails at 1am, and asking me to email partners long after 5. I actually find it a bit rude to email people at night and once suggested I would send first thing, and he was like “Why?”. Am I being soft?
