Why does it have to be a boyfriend that likes her exactly like that? Why can't she just not get a pixie cut because she doesn't want to.

I love pixie cut! elle.com/beauty/hair/tips/g15/best-celebrity-pixie-cuts/?

^yes, but missing the principal here

No, I got it, but disregard the comment. It's not worth it. The client's comment was disrespectful to the OP and the pixie cut!

Why not, say something like: oh I love pixie cut but my boyfriend likes me exactly like this, haha = FU client

It could also be a girlfriend ;-) depending on the client's gender! It's a good way let the client know he/she is a sub-species. Just kidding, she should handle it as she likes. Saying she doesn't like pixie cut is perfectly good (it just breaks my little heart).

Agreed! Totally.

@kpmg1- while you might very well be right, please tell me why 😧

@SD for starters, i recommend taking a sass101 class

@SD you are a misogynists dream

Been unhappy and stuck at my big law firm for a couple years. Mentor set me up with a secondment with a client. Still trying to feel out client, but mentor is trying to convince me to take in-house position if it comes up. I do not like the town the client is located in, and I’m not sure of the salary. Am I kindly being pushed out? I like the work well enough in the secondment but the location is a non-starter.

Tbh, I am not a big fan of data management, and I totally see myself doing product analytics which is becoming a hot skill in DS field. Is it stupid to turn down the first offer and accept the second one? I would love some advice
