Q: How to approach boundary setting when family composition changes?

JeffMy wife's sister is very close to our family, and over the course of the last few years, it's become a common practice for her to do her laundry at our house. I don't generally mind this, my wife enjoys this as an opportunity to visit with her sister, and we've used it on occasion as free childc...

That is quite strange. You may want to wait for some weeks / months, until the new family (you wife's sister's family) gets a chance to buy a washing machine. If that does not happen, approach the brother-in-law, not the wife. Casually discuss about their situation as a new family, their needs, offer your availability to help if they need anything. Like a washing machine. (I put it as a sarcastic joke - but you get the idea). — virolino 1 min ago

Q: If I ask a co-worker for an electronic suggestion for use at work and then go buy a different electronic than what he suggested, is that rude?

AlesanaI asked my coworker for a work electronic device suggestion and he recommended this electronic that looked pretty nice. They're more for gaming but they work with a PC. So I am wondering - if I were to use his suggestion as a starting place to look for some similar electronics that could be more ...

 
@ExtrovertedMainMan I'm pretty sure this is off-topic, but I'm on mobile right now and can't find the ressources to back that up. Any help?

@Ælis Yeah, I closed that one. It's both a bit of a list-type question and not about Interpersonal Skills at all (maaaybe it's about getting information about Interpersonal Skills, though even that is not sure).
@ExtrovertedMainMan I've also put this one on hold as unclear, because there's no clue in the whole story what they want to tell the in-law.
 
@Tinkeringbell Yeah, I thought that too, but I was waiting for people to ask for clarification before VtC ^^

Wow, OK, Saturday in its finest.
If only people got out to doing some fun things and worried less about sounding awkward/foolish/arrogant etc.

TIL that there's a post history type for "Post Tweeted"
Can't seem to find any posts in SEDE that have that history event though. I tried on IPS, SO, and MSE

That's only for the automatic, official SE Twitter feeds though, which they stopped creating new ones years ago.

My father just reminded that there were government taxes to pay this month. Seems like the government forgot to send me a letter to remind me about that... (I have zero to pay this year, but it would have still but I still have to declare what I earned)

@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ I was! Half of it went wrong but it ended with free popcorn and drinks at the movies so it's fine ;)
@Rainbacon Have you tried workplace? I think I've seen a few posts with it there
