8:42 am
with work chores. >> yes. >> and that everybody sign up. post it in the kitchen. there's no shirking the duties. you have to pitch in. what works for you at home is fine. but on vacation with friends, everybody needs to pitch in. >> i would repress it. i do -- i would be doing steve's chores. >> i'm do it, steve. >> let's move it to one here with parents looking to fill the days with kids. play dates are popular. sometimes a parent will drop their child off and say see you at the end of the day? is that okay? >> leave them all day larry. not completely unacceptable. your child is not a coat that you leave at the dry cleaner to pick up when you feel like. a couple of hours, five hours is ridiculous. you need to put your foot down. >> unless you said um front, i need some help today.
8:43 am
>> different story. >> summertime, good time for reunions. let's say it's girls get away. one friend is weaseling out of paying. how do you figure out a way to get her to chip in? >> do we have a name for her? >> you know it. it's cheap skate cindy. >> she can drink, too. >> she chips in, saying i only had a soda. here, we love all-inclusive vacations. so, do a diy version of that. here's our budget. everyone, this is your share. you pay up front and there's no pulling out the wallet every time and no awkwardness. >> summer office parties. get togethers. they're co-workers, though. in our case, it's difference. but a lot of work environments, you're not the closest of friends. what's the proper attire?
8:44 am
>> it's important to be able to loosen up a little bit. >> should i wear a bikini? >> i think you should wax first. >> done and done. >> i would not recommend that. if you have a vavoom vilma -- >> these are getting better. >> you want to be aware that this is the impression that people are going to carry away from your party. test out your swimsuit. test it out in advance. wear it in your shower at home, so you see what it looks like wet. >> wow. >> that's a lot of research. >> especially if it's a new swimsuit. >> does vavoom vilma do this? >> she doesn't care. >> ten women named vilma were just hired across the country. >> this brings up a good point, because summertime work. we know that sun dresses are in
8:45 am
and sandals. what if you have a co-worker that dresses like a beach vacation. >> one of the things i hear, is so many workplaces are at business casu, people don't know what the dress code is. it's not up to you to dictate someone else's dress code. let h.r. take care of it. it's not your duty. >> i'm for that. don't confront. >> thomas, thank you. we're going to bust out the skewers. great summer grilling. >> he said sweep it under the rug sally over here. decemb recipes you can try this weekend. first, this is "today" on nbc. o will come [ indistinct chatter ]

9:14 am
household name and one day multiple white house officials now confirm to nbc news that spicer resigned from that position. anthony scaramucci was offered a position and accepted a position someone who worked very closely with spicer. spicer has expressed great reservations about the hiring of scaramucci and suggesting he wasn't prepared for a communication's job that that's not where his past experience was. as we speak right now, the press has actually been ushered out of the upper area outside spicer's office. i saw inside the room, there was a big all-staff meeting taking place as we speak right now, including deputy press secretary inside, sarah huckabee sanders and the chief of staff reince priebus. what's striking here is that scaramucci, the new communication's director, has long clashed with reince priebus, the chief of staff. this is the latest in what is a
9:15 am
series of chaotic episodes. this really the first major shakeup here, craig, within the white house now affecting the press secretary who is expected to depart almost effectively immediately. >> peter, at this point any word on who becomes the new full-time press secretary there? >> it's a good question and, as you'll know, we haven't had a on-camera white house press briefing in a matter of weeks. this white house communication strategy has been different than the communication strategies of white houses before it right now. we've seen sarah huckabee sanders take the podium in recent days, but most of those briefings take place now off camera. who becomes the press secretary, that's the question we don't have the answer to right now. the president has been considering, as he's expressed frustration and considering individuals from the conservative commentators in the past. but at this point, craig, we don't know who will take that role. >> our man at the white house, peter alaxeneder.
