Can we start a doggo/cat/pet picture thread please? We need some positive content amidst the sea of Covid19 chatter.
Ethical Poll: Would you sign a petition to take a 50% pay cut for 4 months to ensure no COVID related layoffs happen at your firm? Answer in the comments below.
I need my consultants to travel. The work is in supply chain distribution and needs to be onsite with the team and end users. I am rolling off consultants who won’t travel. I don’t want people to get sick but work needs to get done. Yes everyone will be following all COVID protocols and following best practices. Thoughts?
The first break we’ve had from work since WFH-life began in March is a great time to reflect on everything that’s happened recently. Looking back, how would you describe your experience as a professional during Covid-19? What’s changed for you the most? What’s surprised you?
COVID brides: What do you say to people who question your judgement for choosing to still hold a (socially distanced, with masks) 2020 wedding in the U.S. during a pandemic? And when did/are you getting married?
I may have Covid-19 and am quarantined. There aren’t tests available here yet. My mgr wants a list of everyone I met with 2 weeks before I was out. I want to help but this feels like a witch hunt...
I went to my parents house (suburbs) to wait out the COVID situation weeks ago since my area was hit hard. I’ve found it extremely difficult to connect with my parents and carry a conversation...
Might not be a popular opinion, regardless of politics, we have beds filling up, covid19 causing brain issues. Are you really going to send your kids under 18 to school in the fall? Agree or Disagree? Contd.
Anybody having a hard time focusing? Not due to new WFH procedures but because of the general state of the world right now? I can’t stop checking on every new covid-19 update or worrying if I have it
My pledge for 2020, I'm not going to live in fear. Going to go back and teach my children. I realize that the chances of getting Covid 19 from younger people are slim (based on science). I realize that IF I get it, my chances of survival are 99.95%. I realize that the fear politically driven mainly by the media and in the teaching community, teachers unions. I WILL THINK FOR MYSELF AND NOT BE A SHEEP!
please avoid making coronavirus jokes around coworkers of Chinese origin. If they are Chinese Americans, it’s offensive; if they are Chinese, then its straight out insensitive. (Cont)
How do folks think Coronavirus will affect remote work in the long run? Will companies be more open to it/push for it? Will demand for remote options increase a lot? Will it have little effect?
Hi Ladies, I’ve gone on 3 dates with a guy and we get along great. On the 3rd date we split the bill which was $200 total. I know he hasn’t been working during covid so I was more than happy to but does it seem weird that he accepted my offer so early on? I always genuinely offer but it’s rarely accepted. He’s paid for the last 2 dates and we already have plans for a 4th. Navigating this dating life is exhausting. Interested to know peoples thoughts on paying for dates
Has anyone been running outside to destress and get some fresh air? Parents are worried about covid-19. I live in NYC and do early runs where there are rarely anyone and maintain distance.
Can someone explain to me why the government doesn’t just freeze rent and mortgage payments during coronavirus and then provide unemployment to those who need it? Seems like everyone could get a temporary free pass if the fed on down forgives loan payments throughout the crisis, and unemployment benefits / stimulus provided to individuals could be significantly lower without having to factor in rent. What am I missing here?
Would appreciate some perspective: my SO, who I live with, is closely following coronavirus and it’s to a point where he’s asked that we wash our hand every time we get home, ctd:
This is Joe Biden's America. "This used to be a beautiful, safe city — I don’t even recognize it. Nothing’s open, nothing’s the same,” said a passerby and former Portland resident named Jennifer, who added that it upsets her to see businesses boarded up for protection against violent protesters who emerge at night." https://www.koin.com/news/health/coronavirus/nothings-the-same-downtown-portland-copes-with-closures/
What's your "pandemic positive"? I've actually lost weight, which has been good since I had a multitude of back problems pre-COVID due to massive weight gain over the last two years... I'll take it.
Everyone is terrified of the corona virus, but it’s not fatal for those who have a good immune system. It’s only dangerous for little kids and old people. I had the swine flu and still alive and well
Anyone else bored AF during this Covid-19 era? What is your Covid-19 pastime? Need some new hobbies/routines.
I’m a F in a friends wedding at the end of September in PA. When I asked about precautions at the wedding for Covid, I was basically told the bride and groom don’t want to encourage people to wear masks (at wedding or getting ready) and are too stressed to take any other precautions. Really on the fence about attending. What would you do? For reference, the wedding should all be outside and will have ~50+ ppl, but me (and several others) traveling from out of state. I don’t know what to do!!
Don’t know why, but I am not feeling afraid of getting laid off. And also I don’t feel like pushing to get another job in case that happens. I am fed up with this visa nonsense, the corporate slavery they have in name of H1B. And also this whole world in turmoil due to covid has left me thinking what better i could do to add value to the society. Adding to the agony of American dream is the civil unrest in US, trump again for 4 years, more guns, absurdity of USCIS etc.
How are you experiencing Coronavirus? Are you working from home? What's your professional life like now?
Just learned my coronavirus test results came back positive. Think I had a mild case and feeling well atm. Any questions for someone on the other side? Happy to share insights to soothe nerves.
Before Covid I was going to... buy a house and change job. Since Covid I’m... living back at home with my parents. Your turn.
Maybe I’m terrible, but does anyone else find it distasteful how some nursing/health friends in departments largely unaffected (i.e. NICU, L&D) by COVID are bragging about being on the “frontlines”?
Anomaly president Franke Rodriguez emphasized the layoffs are not a result of the account loss: “This is directly associated with the impact coronavirus”
Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
Well, our district found a COVID loophole and are exploiting it. They get to determine whether or not we are considered a “close contact” or not with a positive student. And because they told us to “never be within 6’ of a student for 15 minutes or longer” (in a tiny classroom with 28 JH students), they’re justifying that if we test positive “despite their efforts”, it’s on us, not the district, so they won’t cover any medical costs or give us the Covid days off. Talk about feeling expendable.
I’m regretting this even as I type, but too curious. Is anyone else amazed at how quickly everything tossed their freedoms to the side over this whole Covid thing? (Please dear god do NOT take this as a suggestion that there is some grand conspiracy at play). Just amazed at this response as an interesting case study in relative value of freedom.
What is the truth? People argue that the annual flu kills more than COVID-19. I’m 40+ yrs old and never knew anyone that was hospitalized or died from flu, or hospitals over-loaded. Who’s lying?
Ex-GF and I live together and broke up in January. I was traveling heavily for work, then COVID happened and now we are stuck in the same apartment 24/7. Lease is up in 2 months. Ideas how to manage?
I guess this is coronavirus related given it's happening during lockdown. How do people feel about removal of statues of controversial characters from public places? CONT
I'm leaving NYC in about 6 months it feels between politics and COVID it's gotten pretty toxic the culture is very anti police and it feels everything that I loved about nyc is gone. I think job wise things are going to be remote for a while. I'm buying a massive 6 bedroom house down south and going to live my life.
Has your firm gone to remote work because of COVID-19? Our national firm hasn’t even addressed it yet - even though our office is located in an area where all schools have closed for 3 weeks.
Corona Virus is obviously a very serious situation. Sometimes laughter is the best way to not go crazy.. Post your best CV Memes. The one with the most likes wins a roll of Toilet paper!
So when I tell guys I am dating, that I am not free on weekend mornings as I normally have a bunch of friends to talk to or hang out with(pre Covid), they seem to be reacting a little weirdly. I just don’t like talking to new people (read not so permanent yet) in the am. I like having a lovely schedule full of people I love or just read. Can a guy find it offensive? And these are guys I have been hanging/talking with over a month, not just couple of days.
Any female open to the idea of walking with and having a coffee here with me. I’ll bring the coffee. Have simple non covid, non work talk and laugh. Let’s get into the complications later. ☺️
Hello! Do you guys have any tips about working out the first thing in the morning at home? I used to go to the gym 6am pre-covid before work, but since quarantine started, I’ve been waking up like 30 mins before I need to start working/my earliest meeting 😅. It’s so hard to get out of bed when my new “gym” is right next to my bed.
We had a patient come in with a stab wound, and turns out he has a fulminant COVID pneumonia underneath it. No symptoms
I'm working in BigLaw, and even though my hours are significantly better since Covid started (end at 6 somedays, some weekends off), I feel miserable - I don't care about my work, I feel like what we do is inefficient as hell, I feel everything in law is quite backwards esp technologically, there's so much document review, scanning and photocopying and duplication of work since my bosses really hate using soft copies. Wondering if I should make a move to consulting? How does it compare?
So now we have an anti-vaxer, and a guy who once called for prayer to get rid of HIV, in charge of the Coronavirus outbreak. Thank you Republicans.
Happy Friday everyone! I am donating to the WHO COVID-19 response fund, and am hoping some of you will consider joining me: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/donate

Thoughts on Moore Van Allen? Thinking about taking a transactional role with “no billable req,” but can’t decide if that’s a food sign or a terrible one re hours and expectations.
I’m currently 28 weeks and just had a phone interview for a new job; throughout the course of the conversation I didn’t bring up that I’m pregnant. The hiring manager said the next step would be to come in for an in-person interview, and now I’m worried that this will somehow hurt my chances (even though I know it’s technically illegal to discriminate against women for being pregnant). Has anyone else had experience with this? Should I tell them now that I am pregnant?
