This is typical. You should confirm with them what they would say if queried further by a prospective employer. Have a friend call and pose as prospective employer HR for a reference check. And you should come up with an explanation for future employers like "not enough work in my group" that you can say in a neutral to upbeat tone so you don't hamstring your jobsearch.

I am an idiot and you can tell me that. But I need advice to help the problem I caused. My husband isn't talking to his brother, or is at least avoiding him, because his brother has been treating his mom horribly and is also following Trump's guidance on Covid. It's too much for my husband to take in, and he's pretty conflict-avoidant. Brother's wife messaged me saying brother knows my husband is mad, why? I said (cont)

I got sick with what I at first thought was stomach bug last Sunday (vomiting, fatigue, then crazy chills and body aches). Lasted 1 day. My nose was also a bit congested, so went to get a pcr on Monday and got a positive result. Tested again at 2 diff places on Wed - 2 negatives. All pcr. Had no symptoms since Sunday. Has anyone had something similar happen to them? Was it just false positive (everyone’s been saying that almost never happens), or just super mild case of Covid?

Australia’s health department stated borders will most likely not open to international travelers at all this year and would most likely still require 2 weeks quarantine when they do next year. This was my one vacation I had planned right when covid hit and I was really hoping they’d open with vaccines so I could go in October, even March next year but even that seems an unlikely time to have a normal trip 🥺 i just really miss international travel
