8 o'clock meeting in the client site, caught an early flight and planned to get some sleep on the flight. The fucking baby next to me started crying his lungs out. FML.
Pregnant wife just returned from A meditation retreat and is craving Indian food. Any recommendations for decent/ authentic places in Dallas/ Irving area?
Saw a lady on the train who I thought was pregnant, stood up to give her my seat, but quickly realized as I stood closer that it was her fat belly. FUCK. Fml
Dog parents: Planning to adopt a puppy 🐶 I have volunteered in a shelter and have basic knowledge about owning a dog- but any recommended books / podcasts to help be prepared?
Either my neighbors are trying to make a baby (very aggressively) or somebody is getting assaulted...trying to sleep...I'm okay with the sex...but what if it's not...should I call the cops? #Questions
Shady or not? Met someone on dating app. Made no mention of having a kid until first date. Nothing in profile about being a parent etc. said it's because they wouldn't get any dates if they had.
Quite surprised how often I get called a girl in a professional setting. I turned 18 quite a while ago! Everyone must think I am a child genius wahoo! That's it right?
Found out this week an old friend is now having a kid. This person is a good human but for a variety of reasons, they aren’t so great when it comes to anything romantic with the opposite sex (myself, mutual friends, etc). They managed to get pregnant with someone lives across the country from their old neighborhood. Instead of being happy for them, I hate that the only thing I can think is this will always come to mind taking safe sex precautions knowing that it was definitely unplanned.
Hi ladies. A birth control question. I take oral BC on time every day but I am struggling to feel comfortable with sex without a condom. I know BC is something like 99% effective but I am not ready for the repercussions of failure - whether raising a child or choosing not to, both are decisions I do not want to make. My partner is frustrated by this but defers to me and is willing to do whatever I'm comfortable with. I want to become comfortable without condoms. Any ideas?
Getting a Labrador puppy in few weeks. Any recommendations on must haves at home? First time dog owner/father here!
Is this a good time to adopt a puppy? Productivity is low with the kids at home,but can’t shake the feeling that it could be a good bonding experience for the family and crate train the pup. Thoughts?
Having a kid. Is it still ok to bring them up with gender stereotypes? I mean, clearly I want them to do any job they aspire to, but will I be a bad parent if I dress the girl up in pink and boy blue?
Woke up to a kid throwing tantrums at 2am. Now getting up on a flight to deal with clients throwing tantrums all afternoon. FML
Picking up a puppy this weekend and I’m nervous. My partner and I have talked about getting a dog for a couple years and we both want it, but I’m nervous about the responsibility, about the length of commitment, what if I’m not a good dog parent, and worried if we will feel that dog ownership isn’t for us. I had a dog growing up but it’ll be my partners first dog. Any advice from anyone who’s been in my shoes before?
When I was 13, I was a very impressionable kid. An older cousin of mine had told me that everything on the news is a lie and that there’s always another story to historical events. This lead me to googling every single event in history with the word ‘truth’ attached to it so I could find out what really happened lol. I thought I was the smartest kid in my middle school because I believed we faked the moon landing, the titanic was a hoax, and that they put fluoride in the water to make us passive
How expensive are good private schools? Having a kid on the way got me thinking, I don’t trust the public school system (FCPS), but I get a sense that private schools are only for rich people. Is it possible on a dual full time income? No charter schools in the county.
Feel so bad for the wailing kid’s mom. She is getting the stares. The baby has not stopped crying on this 2.5 hours. Glad we are landing in 20.
Random but say you had a flat earth father and anti-vax mother, is their child destined to fail? How do they recover from such a regressive mindset
Married woman with a 2 year old kid and found out last week that my husband has been cheating on me for the last 1 year with a coworker who lives in the same apartment complex. Feel like a fool as we all meet socially (she is married too, without kids) and we have had them over at our place so many times (part of our Covid bubble). Turns out those “gym sessions”were just ways to get action. Her husband went to work as essential worker so basically had the the place to themselves. Devastated
Has anyone tried Candid or other Invisalign alternatives? I had braces as a kid but didn’t wear retainers and now I have spaces between my teeth. Should be a somewhat simple case. Would love any advice and hear about experiences

Anyone been able to switch their benefits during the year through doing an appeal? I was no wiser and signed up for Aetna DMO vs PPO and all the dentists are fucking 1 star! 😖
Scary feeling when a passenger on your flight gets suddenly sick and needs paramedic help 😔suddenly I don't need to get off the plane 30 secs after we get to the gate anymore
I have a super day coming up and they asked me to provide my availability. It’s going to take about 3 hours (4 rounds, 1 of them is a presentation). Would it be ok to push this a week? I just don’t have the ability to prep and take off that much time with the short notice. Will this hurt my chances?
Good morning fish. I had the best train ride to work ever. Some 15 elementary school cuties boarded my train and jumped and clapped at every stop.Everyone on the train was smiling and seemed so happy
Boutique folks: what time tracking software do you use to track projects and internal efforts?
What's the point in renewing AWS certs if they don't add much value anymore? I don't think I even want to do tech consulting at this point
Is using your breakfast allowance for lunch specifically prohibited or can you use it for lunch if you skip breakfast?
Anyone know if I can expense a Tinder Plus account if it says "not interested in hookups"?
When I see Florida Georgia Line perform I cringe. Get embarrassed for them. Clearly I’m in the minority. What am I missing?
The key to surviving consulting is knowing when to turn it on and knowing when to turn it off.
