I had a tentative hearing on a matter. The matter was settled and we asked the court to waive a hearing and just sign the order based on the papers. The court neither let us know they were waiving it nor gave us the time / zoom for the hearing.

Should I assume it's not happening? The hearing was supposed to be on Friday. I need to know if I have to prepare.

Pre-covid times were better. There was work, after-work, laughter, office crush, cribbing on traffic etc.. It was effortless in finding and connecting with new people. It has been over a month that I am in Hyderabad. I was excited to go to my new office, talk to managers and colleagues who never showed their heads on zoom meetings. Things have turned over. Nobody is interested to come to office anymore. Social life is almost equal to zero. I was happier at hometown with parent around.

His response was around “I communicate however I want / the employees should get the message straight / they shouldn’t be coddled.” 🤦 What would you respond to that? We’re talking live soon. Cont
