What’s the etiquette for when you’re a sneezing and coughing germy mess but maybe not “sick” enough to warrant taking the day off (or maybe I should)? Does it look bad to ask to work from the hotel?

Your team will appreciate your not sharing your germy mess. Tell them what’s going on — they’ll understand

Just say you’re a germy mess and would hate to pass anything along; play it from the view of caring for your colleagues, they’ll appreciate it!

Yes, stay in the hotel. Too many assume it allergies and boom, everyone gets sick.

It would be better to stay home. If the client is paying for the hotel, drug yourself and go to client site. I’ve seen people rolled off engagements for this very thing.

YES!!! If questionable, work from home/ hotel/ anywhere but the office!!!! Please and thank you

Good afternoon,

It’s a hard post to write, but I’m looking for advice from qualified colleagues. I am in a position where I may become a caretaker for an ill parent. Clearly, this will become an issue with owning and managing a law practice. Has anyone ever tried to balance both? Has anyone ever put their firm or their career on a brief hold to provide care? Just looking for some guidance. Thank you.

Hi all - could use a little crowdsourced help with an admittedly unusual request. Last year, I did a two month working retreat south mid-jan through mid-March. Would like to do it again, but I am looking for a place with a basketball court (key), pool (key), and ideally near the ocean (nice). Trying to stay at 3-5k per month. Been googling, but does anyone know of anything offhand? Hotel or AirBnB is fine, leaning SoCal or FL, but open to suggestions.

Hello All,
Excel help please. I’m trying to combine 3 tabs into 1. So on tabs a,b,c I have wire instructions that go to different places, but they all have the same field names/format. However the number of rows for each tab will vary from day to day. I need to make a fourth tab that shows all the rows from a,b,c consecutively. Because the number of rows change, I can’t find the best way to collate all the rows into one table. I can use a macro or lookups or a source formula. Please advise!
