Working from home in customer support provides so much flexibility as a stay at home mom. I can take care of the home, my babies and work without feeling guilty ….talk about mutli-tasking!

That is a lot to do at once! I'm always impressed by moms who work, take care of their families, and keep their homes tidy. I am single, no children, and my house is a mess. This is what long hours do to you :(

I can't imagine trying to work from home with kids as a distraction. How do you find the time?!

If you can do all that together, you are a superwoman, I have no doubt, for it is very difficult to do so many things at the same time, my position as a public service agent is quite stressful.

Thank you for sharing your experience! I completely agree - it is so nice to be able to take care of everything while being able to work. It can be a lot to juggle, but it's worth it!

LOL, how do you keep customers from interrupting you? I wish I could do that

I can't even imagine. I would go crazy if I couldn't leave the kids with the babysitter sometimes. More power to you

Not in my experience. By the end of the day I'm so frazzled that I can hardly even talk. I guess somebody has to be my polar opposite tho

It's a common misconception that just because someone is at home, they are constantly available for chores and childcare. It just isn't realistic. I mean, good for you because I think you're basically Superwoman, but me, not so much...

Hi All, I recently interviewed at Amazon and Google for software engineer and passed both interviews. I have an offer on the table from Amazon but with Google I am officially in team matching and my recruiter tells me that the queue is pretty backed up now and it can take a long time. My question is should I take the Amazon offer now or decline Amazon and hold out for Google? I have heard that Google has better wlb/benefits. But I'm scared to decline Amazon without a guaranteed job offer.

My close friend has been more stressed about things lately. In the last 1-2 years I notice her increasingly complain everything and act cranky and rude to me and other people (unintentionally) often.

One of your roommates (and a close friend that you’ve known for years) has a flight to catch. He has a suitcase, a duffle bag (no wheels), and a backpack. In order for him to get to the airport would you:

A) offer to drive him to the airport that’s about .5 miles away (5 minute drive)

B) tell him to order an Uber since you know his work would pay for it

C) tell him to not be lazy and walk half a mile to the nearest public transportation stop, with all that luggage, and take public transit
