Currently part of a team that’s slowly becoming a “boys club”. Product and Design leadership slowing hiring past colleagues that “have their back”. Most didn’t go through the hiring process because they came on as contractors or were stealth hired.

It’s really shady and feels sort of like discrimination, doesn’t it? Didn’t think I would be part of the statistic…

Every day I stare at my laptop wishing I was on the range in Florida somewhere. I played in college, could go out and shoot 75 on an average day, in the sun 12 hours a day, life was good.

Now instead of playing on the PGA Tour, I am trying to make them a client of mine. Life is no longer good.

I need to get back out there.

I'm feeling a lot of anger towards my manager (now he's acting normal but there were moments where he was condescending/dismissive/mocked my and others work/arrogant/said stuff was "wrong" constantly/belittling the difficulty of tasks etc. in the past project).
Maybe it is "standard chewing out" but it bothered me a lot. So much that I find myself still getting all fired up inside thinking about it...
Idk how to let go of this :/ Thoughts?

Married couples, is it normal to ask your spouse for permission when your single friend wants to make plans with them? I asked a friend to accompany me as my plus 1 to the firm’s holiday party. She was all for it and only wanted to make sure she didn't have to work that day. After she gets married, I remind her about it again and she tells me she has to ask her husband for permission (exact words).
Guess what, he says no so now she's telling me no. She gave me his reasons but l'm calling BS.
