What would you consider standard “notice” for permalance? Afraid if I give two weeks I’ll get cut early but also don’t want to be unprofessional.

I wouldn’t “give notice.” Let them you know you have another gig starting in March and wanted to finish your projects as best you can and give them time to find someone else. They’ll appreciate it and you’ll leave in good standing. They may or may not keep you the whole time, but you’re on their list as someone they can depend on and will call you again.

Did you get another gig that you have to/want to jump to? No offense but they could likely replace you by the next morning. Tell them you have an offer that could lead to staff and that you can give them until end of next week to replace you. Likely they’ll find someone to replace you first. You may lose a few days of money but it’s better to take a few days off to reset.

Following.

I have another gig lined up but it doesn’t start till March so was hoping to get another paycheck out of this one before I leave.

Kind of depends on your relationship with the current shop. If you’ve been there a while and like them and they’ve been reasonable human beings, give them the benefit of the doubt; be open and say you’re planning to start something new in a couple of weeks and ask what you can do to make it easy for them. Maybe recommend someone to take your place. The conscientiousness you invest now will pay off later when you need references or some of them go to other places where you want to work. Just be transparent and thoughtful. Assuming they’re the same way. If they’re not and they seem likely to screw you, do whatever works for you and don’t think twice. But a good ending is worth having if you can swing it.

Any advice for a first year that just got screamed at by two different opposing counsel on two separate cases already this week? Both white males (I only specify bc we all know the type - I know jerks come in all shapes and sizes).

One thought I was questioning his integrity via email (I was just trying to set up a meeting per my partner’s instructions...) and another claimed I didn’t properly communicate what I needed from him to finalize an agreement (although I put it in the release)-

Was invited to a black tie wedding of a close friend. Boyfriend does not own a tux, only black and navy suits. We are already giving about $500 gift to the couple so renting a tux is an added expense we really don’t want to spend. How bad is it to come in a black suit? What would you do?

Thoughts?
There should be a tax rebate for TAX payers. Our Pan and Adhaar is already linked so whenever we purchase anything we should get it without any extra tax. It should apply on everything including flight, railway, bus, cab, food items, groceries, clothes etc. We middle class working professionals are most extracted even before we get our salaries our tax is deducted. We pay taxes honestly and we deserve tax concessions.

Just had to break up with someone I've only been seeing for 2 weeks but it feels like we could have been together for years.

We want two very different relationship styles and it feels like neither of us could be happy with the other style but we still really want each other anyway. Trying to do what's responsible but not moving forward/getting more attached but it just hurts so much.

Someone please tell me I'm doing the right thing by walking away 🥺 my heart hurts
