In Europe, a stag do is the same thing as a bachelor party. A hen do is a bachelorette. They are not typically used to make money to pay for the wedding any more.

OK I came here to vent but my actual mother bashes me for being a full-time employee. I truly enjoy my job as it’s an escape mentally from the house. But she always makes passive aggressive remarks that I’m not actually doing my job as a mother. I guess she raised four kids and never had a paying job or even an education. Not debunking motherhood it is a job in itself , but I just have a different mentality than she. Anybody else been bashed by their mother or mother-in-law for working?

I need advice. My current manager is a temp consultant (we’re hiring for a VP of CS- DM me if you know anyone) and she is absolutely awful. She’s condescending, disorganized, she micro manages us, and she doesn’t listen or value our time or respect our work/life balance. I could go on… We’ve lost 2 teams members in the last 2 months (w/ another 2 on the way out, inc myself) because of her poor leadership. Should I send a cry for help? Should I tell the CEO or HR? Or keep it to myself?
