Some folks go out of their way to be trash at work, and then you're expected to keep it cute and professional. We know it's hard, but we have some tips on how to handle the Annoying Andy's and Too Much Tara's in the workspace. Let's work together to commiserate, share tips, and practice the "professional pop-off," because we all know the rules of engagement are different for us than they are for our White coworkers. Ain't nobody tryna get sent to HR over a cup of weaponized tears, but what they won't do is try to play you on the clock or off.

As usual, we'll stream live on our IG (CoffeeHourChicago), and switch to Leila's account if it times out (LeilaEllisNelsonPsyD).
Just look for our happy melanated faces; likely on the patio weather permitting.
