I once got a call in the middle of the night while on holiday to ask for amends to social posts. I asked them to email me the feedback, then forwarded it to my CD and asked if he could please get them to leave me alone.

At my company, it's gotten to the point where at most big, operational meetings with the whole division, the head execs are reminding everyone that setting boundaries is not only healthy, but breaching them causes stress and makes things worse. Something like this would not fly here, nor should it anywhere. You've gotta push back.

I hope you didn’t reply. Bad behavior shouldn’t be rewarded. Collectively, we need to get better at respecting each other’s time off and weekends.

Don’t answer those either.

hell no

Been getting huge waves of not wanting to work because I know I’m only in it for the money. Except that doesn’t even feel worth it anymore. Just started a new project that isn’t interesting, but is chargeable. Need some advice from fellow fishes. Oh, to add on, I had a vacation planned for Santorini earlier in April, but was cancelled due to COVID. 😭

Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
