My partner of 5 years ended our relationship last night. I’m shattered and feel absolutely sick, and I know the healing isn’t going to be easy. We were on the verge of an engagement and I was ready to spend the rest of my life with him.
I don’t know how to approach work during this time. I think I can get by, but I’m definitely not 100%. Should I talk to my boss about it? My team is close-knit and comfortable around each other, but I don’t know if it’s “appropriate.” What would you do?

Struggling with something - have accepted a new position which required a backfill to current position. Was not part of the selection team nor was asked opinion of candidates. The individual chosen will be toxic to team - have already been told of several who now plan to leave. Starting to regret new position knowing that the team I built & was running so well is going to implode. Any thoughts??
Quick questions. Hi folks, I just received an offer with base pay $110k in Toronto. If I max my RRSP at 18% what should I expect for monthly pay? I was thinking roughly 5.2k. Is my estimate correct?
Here is how I got to the number: 110k - 19.8k = 90.2k (90.2x30%) = 63.14 or 5.2

Pls don’t butcher me, it’s my first time trying to vote and I can’t find the answer online. I’m trying to vote with absentee ballot. For the section of Justices of the Supreme Court it says “Vote for any Four” but the 4 different candidates are all in one party. Is it a matter of bubbling in all 4 different candidates or do we select 1 of the 4? I’m sure I’m over analyzing but can’t come to a conclusion. Also is one stamp enough to mail in? TIA ♥️
What do you think about investing in a condo in Midtown East right now ? My hunch is the place will take a beating and there won’t be capital gains for awhile. Inventory seems to be rising which could mean good deals, but getting stuck for awhile. It’s one of the areas that didn’t recover too well after 08. Anyone with insight ?

NYC office: NYC tax on paycheck, easier commute, possibly higher pay?

Sorry if this is silly, but it’s becoming all too common.
