Lawyers trying to take time off… what a joke. anyone else have this problem?? Amazingly partner replied enjoy your time off and we’ll circle around Wednesday
I’ve never been a regular vacation-taker, but now I’m resolved to become one. Especially because my company has an unlimited PTO policy. Would 4 weeks of total vacation per year be considered a lot/excessive at your company? I’m thinking of doing two one week vacations, and one two week vacation, and booking them far in advance.

Is the real benefit to industry that your hours are flatter? I feel like I’ve been dragging through the summer but my average hours since June 1st end up being 41.2 hours per week.

So my 18yo daughter who just started college texted me that she wants to do solo Europe travel in December and mom (my ex wife approved it). My daughter has traveled extensively in the US and abroad with me. However, she has never traveled even to a neighboring town in the US solo and is just learning what it means to live by herself as a freshman. I'm very concerned for her safety but if I put my foot down, my daughter will detest me. How do other parents in this bowl see the situation?
