Yo, take care of yourself. If they’re stupid enough to make dumbass jokes, that’s on them. Don’t put your health at risk because people *may* become idiotic and flap their gums like fools. Feel better soon.

I was sick last week and beat them to the punch, by joking about eating bat soup lolll. I’m comfortable enough with my team but I guess it’s diff if jabs come from unwanted opinions/figures.

I get what you’re saying. With some people I’d LOL like I just did. But I’ve also had a crazy dude yelling in my face about being a “Chink woman’ (he was mentally ill but hearing that stuff said out loud is startling.)

Buying in this current market, from the perspective of, I believe cars are overpriced bc of my 2010 mindset/inflation perspective, but I also think $60k is not what it used to be, and will only continue to mean less. So in that sense, I think im kinda into buying a car now, as my monthly payments due to inflation will be less and less, and i have no doubts ill continue to get good raises. I think I’d rather get that $60k car now than 5 years later when it costs $120k. Thoughts?
