Getting covid antibody test. Free through insurance so why not? Knock on wood haven’t had symptoms but I’m curious
People - really struggling with this - was supposed to move to bay area for husband’s tech job. I can work remotely. But with COVID I’m not sure if we should make the move. We feel the world will move to a remote/ WFH mode. We want to buy a house and settle down before our kid arrives. Should we move to a cheaper city like Phoenix so we have a big house for cheap and 2 home offices. Am I missing anything?
After 33 days on a ventilator, my uncle died from Covid-related complications, including pneumonia and multiple infections, this morning. My aunt couldn’t say goodbye in person and none of us can be with the family because of distance. This virus is no joke. Please be safe everyone and wear a mask.
My roommate is denying to pay his share of rent he supposed to pay also which he has been paying till Dec 2020. This is not due to COVID but we had an argument using common places in Jan 21,until then he was paying his share of rent $1100 which he agreed to pay for the master bedroom which is quite large that he is occupying, after the brawl he is saying he can pay only equal share of the rent $1950/2 =$975, he also wants the extra money back that he claims that he extra paid. How do i solve ?

Do you think companies will force employees to take the COVID vaccine when it's available?
Hey guys. I’m the event planner for CLSA at my law school and was wondering if anybody is willing to be on a panel regarding ethics during the coronavirus regarding the way confidential information is sent and received, how you guys use zoom for depositions or any ethical challenges you’ve come across during this time. Thank you!
I’ve been on a couple dates with a guy and we got ~physical~ on the second date. Third date is this week but due to COVID reasons I want to know if he’s seeing other people... what’s the best way to ask without thoroughly freaking him out? Usually I wouldn’t care this early but I feel like I need to be aware of his “germ pool” 😂
Some states are cancelling testing for the year. Do you think COVID could be the end of standaridized testing?

My district has a COVID-19 Compliance Tipline. While I don’t have need of it currently, it is good to know it is there. Does your district have this?
Really sad knowing that it will be hard to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas this year due to COVID19...
Do people like those who auditioned in the attached video give others optimism for America's future? Do opportunities like this give optimism for America's future? Are the efforts of these individuals insignificant in today's society? For context, I believe this was filmed right before covid lockdowns. https://youtu.be/JYpJUhXGZq8
My roommate and best friend refuses to get the covid vaccine whenever it’s available because she believes vaccines gave her sister autism. We’re reaching a point of tension where I can’t bring anything up with her that isn’t topical because she’s going through a lot and becomes easily triggered by anything foreign to her. I can’t move out right now. And it also makes me sad that she’s so close minded about the world. Any advice for coexisting/coping? I predict winter will be tough. TIA...♥️

I havent left the White House in months" He held 6 rallies since February https://people.com/politics/trump-claims-he-hasnt-left-white-house-in-months-during-covid-19-crisis-reporter-corrects-him/
Another lie from our car-salesman President. He just said we had the “largest testing capacity in the world”, and that “nobody’s done a better job at testing...” but we can’t test 100 Senators to keep the government running. https://www.axios.com/senate-doctor-mitch-mcconnell-coronavirus-testing-e99282f6-90f5-4e11-8b45-02548f38ab12.html
I was hired out of my MBA to a firm that has now pushed my start date out 90 days twice since Covid. Am I doomed? Are any consulting firms are hiring right now?
What generally produces better returns - 401k invested in index, or landlords with leverage?
How do I deal with a super intense senior associate that is making life difficult? This associate sees no difference between 11 AM and 11 PM, weekend or weekday. They will text me on my personal cell instead of emailing, insist on long zoom calls during which they insist on turning camera on, won’t review anything I send them unless it’s on a zoom call (yes, that is crazy and not the norm at my firm), and is not a good team player (something good? He did it! bad? You did it)! What do I do?
Someone want to explain how everyone in consulting can be this duped... we accept promotions for more responsibilities without knowledge of compensation... that literally doesn’t happen anywhere else. How dumb are we? Ps. I don’t count myself, I’ve never taken a promotion without jumping firms :) though plan on doing it next year - as SM
PwC Partners.....can you explain the big operating model change that was announced that had no bearing on staff. Why announce it then? What benefits can we expect?
Am I an attractive candidate at all? Or is it silly to think I could jump soon for a comp increase? 1 yoe BAH fed (7 yoe in nonprofit sector before that), currently at 90k. Have some generalist certifications (agile, prosci, working on instructional design). Non-technical, no master’s. Resume is mostly attractive bc of extensive international/cross-cultural experience & DoS experience. Am I still too “meh” with only 1yoe & no tech skills?

How much had everyone saved up in their bank account by the end of their senior year? I have a lot of expenses (not married but taking care of a child) and I only have a $20,000 net worth
Does anyone know of any agencies that have a decent amount of remote staff? I'd love to work for a cool shop (and am willing to travel a ton) but don't want to uproot completely.
So what’s happening with Bain compensation?
Been recently using the Hilton honors app to book hotels for work. Thinking about using the Chase portal with my CSR instead. Thoughts or input on this?
What industry has the most excitable culture? I'm not talking about working until 2AM as a norm for perfect decks. Rather, what industry has the most people who get so amped they'll go overtime all the time just cause, without an expectation that everyone always grinds in the name of a deliverable they know is trivial. My hunch is tech startups, maybe traders, but idk... Asking consulting bowl cause no one else gets as much cross-industry exposure. And hey, maybe consulting still wins out!
Firm is giving an extra bonus this year. After taxes theyll be just about the amount of interest on my law school loans (so much interest it’s disgusting). Do I immediately use all of it to pay off that interest, pay off one of the loans in full and put the rest toward interest, invest some, or other? I have about 190K total (loans are my only debt) and am of the group that’s fine paying off slower overtime for more cash flow now but w/ interest so high I’m thinking paying itwould put me ahead?!
