    Summary

    Technically, it’s asking for trouble to date your coworker. It’s really asking for trouble to date your boss. But here’s the thing: Tim’s sure that it’ll all work out in the end. 

    Plus, when people say that, they usually aren’t taking into account the possibility that the entire department is dating the boss.

    Summary

    Judge Roberta Field eyed the next case on the docket balefully. She’d known it was coming. As soon as she’d seen it appear in her schedule she’d cursed and debated “breaking a leg”, since it had been too late to have another baby as a way out. She’d convinced herself that was too extreme, however, and lulled herself into a false sense of security that she must be misremembering and it wouldn’t be that bad. So she’d decided to keep working and let it happen. And now it was here.

    The Bouchard-Lukas divorce.

    Again.

    It had been three years since the last one, which had to be a new record.

     

    --

    Elias and Peter are divorcing again. In trying to decide the division of their marital property, they need some witnesses to assist their respective cases. This is unfortunate for Jon and Martin, who would really rather be elsewhere.

    Summary

    As you are no doubt aware, one of the most vital aspects of people management is ensuring one makes the time for one's line reports via an annual review, wrote Peter Lukas, to Jonathan Sims. It's important we understand your performance over the last year and your goals and objectives for the coming one. I wouldn't want you to feel unsupported by Institute management.

    How many bottles of whisky have you got left in your desk drawers? messaged Jon, to Daisy.

     

    Jon has his annual review. He feels exactly as supported by Institute management as Peter Lukas hopes he will.

    "Martin, what's a 'Zoom'?"
    "On- on a... camera?"
    "No, on a computer."
    "Wh-? Oh.
    Oh. It's this, um, video calling thing."

    Martin has a lot of jobs to do, as Peter's assistant. Some of them are more difficult than others.
