Do you think the perspective around WFH/Remote Work is going to change in any way once COVID-19 is over?

I'd guess far less than some are predicting. There is no "new normal", just the "temporary weird." When things return to normal, people will return to work, they'll get on planes, they'll stay late at the office, etc. Maybe a few folks or companies will find they can have far more people WFH than they originally thought, but that doesn't mean that people will want to. A few folks will have personal epiphanies about their lives and balance, but most won't. I think this period will convince many folks that video conferencing is a poor substitute for almost any type of meeting. They'll learn that nearly everything about working from home is less efficient unless they have the luxury of a separate, quiet and well-equipped home office. In short, the new normal will likely be very much like the old normal.

I live in a huge, huuuuge City, were must people are trying to convince bosses and supervisors they can be trusted to WfH, since it makes some supervisors not comfortable with the idea. Where I live, some supervisors feel safe by seeing their team in their places. There is still people that believe they will work less by not being supervised. But the reality is that must people must dedicate a huge amount of time in commuting, so doing Home-office once or twice week can translate in a couple of “extra-hours” for them. My friends and co-workers are taking this situation as an opportunity to show WfH schemes can work for my city, and we can be just as productive, or even more.

Lol to the person who posted the picture comparing hairdressers resuming work to people illegally crossing the border.

I just had a doc appointment and as I was walking up, I noticed 4 staff members with their masks completely pulled down below their chins until they saw me approaching. They then pulled their masks up but it made me uncomfortable. If masks are required in doctors offices, shouldn’t they remain on all the time even if patients aren’t in the immediate vicinity? Especially since covid can last in the air for hours. I’m vaccinated but higher risk

There are millions of people dying of wars (like Afghan), famine (like Yemen) and also Covid. Why should I be okay with my company donating and speaking on my behave with so much focus on BLM?

The attention to race equality is important but I feel bad for the poor forgotten souls that are facing other issues on earth. They matter too?

Worst case, but still possible: Covid continues to spread for years despite any vaccine (the rest of our lives). Unemployment skyrockets and the US becomes a developing country with squalid conditions for the low-income. We lose social order and all need to hire private security guards to protect our homes from theft and violence. This also means no more vacations or fun events because the risk of something bad happening is too high. What are your thoughts on this?

So, I‘ve been chatting with a girl for a few months since this whole COVID thing started. She’s really cool and we get along great. Last week we met up in person and ended up “having fun”. The only thing is she basically has no boobs. Just nipples on her chest. I couldn’t tell before because we had only vchatted, but now I don’t know if I can get over it. I like big boobs. Should I tough it out and try and get over it, or just move on to another girl?

Just read an article about how the first doses of the vaccine will be doled out. Am I the only one who is really heartened by the global response to COVID-19? Sure, the US and other countries led by conservative despots bungled it, but, on the whole humanity came together, wore masks, hunkered down, made a vaccine in record time. These actions were largely motivated by fear but also compassion for vulnerable people. I mean, we did it y’all!
