Maybe, but it looks to me like just as good a fit for careers. And I have seen a lot worse that stuck in careers, despite my reports submitted.

-Wife mentioned it to boss.*
-He suggested WFH for 6 months before quitting.

Admittedly we might have benefited from the job search anyway, but she'd probably rather dance around and watch TV.


*see previous threads.
