I don't see it as a problem to help him use the app, but it does raise a question of his eligibility based on age. Might be an exemption and he doesn't even have to serve.

If, and ONLY if, you ask the judge.

How should I approach an ominous zoom appointment with supervisinpartner and managing partner? I’m a 3rd year associate.

Cringiest hot mic 🎙 moment of WFH? I was on a webex and a phone call at the same time. The phone call was to provide so not very nice feedback about a peer. Turns out I was not muted in the meeting and said peer was on the webex. 😳

I never thought I’d say this, but I kinda miss the networking events and stuff. I used to just show up to those to be a good “firm citizen,” but I’d really love to see another lawyer in person instead of through a Zoom call. If I ran into one of my old classmates from law school, I’d probably hug them right now.

I think I smile and nod too much. How do I stop? I don’t want to smile all the time but it’s like I’ve been conditioned over time. It honestly is draining. Especially on zoom I can see myself and in my head I’m like wow I am a wreck smiling and nodding vigorously at the most inane things.

Does anybody else feel like half the reason you get burnt out and restless is because of a lack of patience? I think I'm beginning to fully understand and accept that I have a 2-year max shelf life for every role I'm in before I start getting bored and unmotivated, and am ALWAYS concerned with getting to the next step, even if I'm still learning and growing in my current role. I lack patience elsewhere in my life, too, but it's definitely more pronounced in my career satisfaction.

Why is every white collar job salaried? I understand is it legally salary positions are supposed to be for members of management. However the vast hordes of associates and Senior associates in our firms manage nothing. Why are they all paid on salary instead of hourly? Are there historical, legal, political reasons why this is the case? Does the entire US economy just agree to ignore the law and pretend that everybody who has a white collar job manages something?
