I’m not trying to absolve Amazon of any role they may play in this story, but… I’ve never worked for an employer who can require you to go to the doctor.
Honestly, I get it, if I could have kept my pregnancy a secret at work till my baby was born I would have, I like a divide between my professional life an dmy personal life. For me it’s not a response to the oversharing of social media (though it might be that for some), it was more about wanting to avoid unsolicited…
I *still* say biopic (rhymes with myopic). PapaBear keeps telling me “it’s bio-pic” like a “biography picture” but... I just keep going with biopic sounding like myopic.
I was very perplexed and angry the day I learned “segue” was not pronounced “seeg” and that “Segway” was just a brand name playing off of it. I might still be perplexed and angry.
Here’s what I don’t get. He chooses to wake up at 2:30am. I see no reason he would need to have such a bizarre and anti-social schedule, but this is his choice.
I never thought I’d see a schedule that’s simultaneously so varied and so boring. Equal parts golfing and prayer? Swap out one or two items and this could easily be the schedule of an octogenarian.
I’m fairly certain everyone here intellectually understands the underlying issue. But there’s a problem in selecting an anecdote that immediately sours 75% of the readers.

about which I am really trying to muster some freaking empathy.
When you sent out the message to the 15 people, was that to a group you made, or a group message? Because if it was, it wouldn’t be unusual for someone to assume the ongoing purpose of that group and/or group message would be to share baby photos.
Miss Manners says you should send them immediately, the rule is that people have one year to give you a wedding gift.
Oh come off it. No one is censoring her work.
If you think it’s either right or smart to use the police department as enforcers of your unwritten rules of social mores, you’re the fucking problem.
I will definitely watch this movie. It sounds charming and light which is a great way to spend an afternoon at the movies.
There have been a lot of variations of the name Sir at my school for years, and none of the kids were insufferable. You might not think it’s a great name, but there seem to many who think it is.
The original Tony tweet was so weird, because if Rachel Bloom wasn’t a famous person he had met and he haden’t made a mistake, then it would just be rude and weird instead of being rude and clueless.
