Tilt my head, listen, and say “that is interesting. Thank you for sharing your viewpoint.” Then exit stage left. It isn’t worth it to discuss at work and risk jeopardizing relationships and business.

I'm anticipating hearing only one side of the story. The inevitable side eyes and uncomfortable looks when you even state there could be people with different opinions than everyone else... I try to avoid any political conversations but sometimes the things I hear in the office I can't contain myself.

Three things I say or don’t say: “It doesn’t matter who you vote for. It’s all the same.” Smile and nod and just listen. “It’s a circus” “A hot job has just come into my que...vote your conscience”

How old is “too old” to get MBA? I’m 28 now, so maybe enter in 2022, but that puts me at 30. I feel like 30 isn’t that old, but then I see threads of people just 25 years old getting their MBA and it causes me hesitation. Anyone else in similar boat?

TFW the Sheraton employee questions if you and your SO really belong in the lounge, then you call them on their BS and they send a bottle of champagne later as an apology. That's right 👍🏾👍🏾
