Thinking about having a small humidifier at my desk. Does anyone have one? Should I even bother because the office is so large?

Better to ask for forgiveness than permission.

We have 2 managers who turn theirs on (with two different smells 🙄), and nobody says anything. The entire office can smell it, unfortunately. But we also have people who bring in their own heaters (which make noise), and that’s ok with management. It’s probably fine as long as the smell isn’t very strong.

For an external resume, is it ok to list clients as a representative set without obviously naming the projects/context. And what about doing so during in-person interviews, ok to reveal verbally ?

Has anyone called in sick during the first trimester? I am home today on PTO but literally the thought of getting on a plane tomorrow is stressing me out since I've been sick all day. I don't want to be seen as a wimp/a liar in a few weeks when I have to tell people I'm actually pregnant but sometimes I wish I could just work from home until this shitty period is over.

CMV: noise canceling headphones are overrated. It blocks out the background noise and isolates annoying noises like baby crying...earplugs are far superior for traveling.
