Take the day off! You’ll feel better and can recover quicker than dragging it out while trying to work.

Attend to what needs to be done today and communicate you’re sick to those you report to. Take the time to reset and feel better.

If it’s just a cold, I’d keep working. Pre-COVID I would have worked from home.

I literally have food poisoning and people won’t stop bugging me about stuff even after I said I was sick. What do other people do on the very rare occasions when they’re actually too sick to do anything (maybe happens like once a year to me). Out of office? Refer to assistant? Nothing?

Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?

I feel like the Senior manager has to redo all (or a lot) of my work. I’ll suggest something, they’ll modify or reject it and then make a decision. Then I’ll execute on that decision and I didn’t have the best idea and it’ll be tweaked again or something comes up and the approach didn’t actually work based on th support. I’m an A2 up for promotion so I should be performing like a new senior, but I feel like it’s clear that I’m not close. For more context, it’s a first year audit so maybe that...
