Help! I am 6’1” tall with long legs and long feet .... and it seems like my “go to online store” for tall pants/slacks (32”-34” inseam) as well as shoes (size 14M) has shuttered (Long Tall Sally). I would love any suggestions for either tall clothes and/or shoes. Even a place to buy custom shoes at this point - I am desperate! My slightly too small size 13 Tory Burch sandals are just not going to cut it during the colder months, even given COVID 🤪 Thanks in advance!
I really do not understand my company's attendance policy. No sick or personal time and each time you have unscheduled PTO it's considered an occurence. Its super restrictive and during a pandemic you risk people coming to work sick spreading what could potentially be Covid. I just don't get it. I understand they are running a business but it just shows you really don't care about your employees at all but yet you want them to care about this company and the work being done here.
Moved here in March with my SO (she’s from here) just before Covid hit and never had a chance to socialize outside of her group of friends. Anyone in a similar situation? Ppl seem very cautious still.

For those of you who have moved back home(due to COVID or holidays), how has your dating life been impacted?
For every one concerned that the Covid vaccine manufacturers are protected to some point against lawsuits until 2024, that is true. It is due to the PREP Act. However Covid is not the first time it was activated. There have been quite a few since 2005 when it was enacted. There are some still in effect for smallpox, zika and anthrax for example. https://www.phe.gov/Preparedness/legal/prepact/Pages/default.aspx
Week 11-12, I got Covid (coming out of quarantine now). I’m Moderna vaxed too. Every healthcare professional was like, I’m glad you’re vaccinated. All seems to be Ok. Have my 13 week Nucal next Friday.

I'm moving to Europe in a few months I'm also struggling with depression since covid started. I'm not running away, per se but I definitely could use a fresh start. Loneliness is definitely at the heart of the issue. I've spoken to friends/family about it, and they're doing their best to hang out but everyone got in relationships over covid so their time is limited. I see friends like once or twice a month - much less than pre covid. Any advice about staying sane these last 2 months?
Ladies, do you share your PTO plans w/ your coworkers? My scenario: Joined a new company in May and I'm taking my 1st PTO (1wk). I normally keep my plans to myself (as my coworkers aren't my friends), but since I'm relatively new and never met my colleagues in-person (due to covid) I'm wondering if I'll seem standoffish.
Ladies, as we get our Black Friday deals this week, I hope you check out givebackbox.com— they ask you to reuse shipping boxes to donate clothes/other goods, and give you free shipping labels. I’m lucky to have what I have, as many of us are. During the holidays, I try to donate clothes so that they have a second life. I used to bring bags of donated clothes to Goodwill but given covid, Give Back Box’s free pickup is probably better. Hope you join force!
Just Sr'ed my first project; my whole perspective has changed and I understand all of the frustration that Sr's like to post here.
Question: The company that you are working for offers cloud managed services and has been approached by a potential client. What are some areas (or red flags) you would consider before responding to their RFP? ( I started putting together a response but would love to get your insights) Answer: 1) Understanding of current annual spending vs spending if they adopted our cloud services 2) Clients expected growth rate 3) Regulatory requirements depending on industry (medical, fed etc)

increasingly wary of the concept of "cultural fit". wouldn't you want a diversity of personalities? isn't it important for business to have at least one skeptic in the room?
