Practice group is - no +1’s or anything tho to limit size (not back in office generally, yet)

Yup. Small firm. We have a dinner/party in a private room (with a bar) at a nice restaurant. Significant others invited.

any single females going w/out a date? If so, tell them to hmu 🥳

Ours is a lunch but they’re flying us to the main office.

Lol out holiday party is at 4:30 on a Wednesday and no SOs invited. So stupid.

I’m accepting a job offer tomorrow, and the new company has 5 less PTO days per year than my current company, and it’s prorated based on my start date. I have my full year planned out with my current PTO schedule, and the majority of my PTO is in the latter half of my year (1 week vacation, 3 days for sisters bachelorette party, 2 days for 2 separate wedding out of town). We already negotiated, and I feel bad going back to ask for more PTO, but I need it. What would you do? How to approach?

Am I being oversensitive?
