Why do people talk on obnoxious calls in the middle of the team room? Self awareness, please. How is this not a lesson you learned, I don't know, by existing more than a day on the planet?

Maybe because it's the space the client allocated to your team and there were calls that your teammates had to be on?

Agree with OP. I think OP is talking about obnoxious personal calls too, not work calls. Step outside of the client site or find a communal area, it's not that hard to be considerate!

Ladies I have a tutor to learn a second language and my tutor is late to every lesson. Not by a few minutes but at least 20-30minutes. I'm hesitant to find a new teacher and find new books, teaching style and so on, and I've mentioned I need to start on time but don't think she understands that this is bad etiquette. I don't think this is a cultural difference. I simply don't understand. How do you address someone who is always late and does not feel the need to fix it?!

Here’s a reminder for my perfectionists, first/second years, and those of us questioning if we’re doing enough. Your lessons do not need to be incredible this year. Fall back on some of your favorites, do what you can, and make sure you’re allocating time for yourself everyday. Yes everyday or else you will go insane. End each day by saying you did your best and no matter what mistakes you make or if lessons flop, try again the next day. You. Are. Human.
