Does anyone else get covid guilt? I met friends for a vacation this past weekend. We are all vaccinated and wore masks in Ubers and until we were seated at restaurants and bars. I just can’t help but feel guilty and worried that we were irresponsible as the delta variant surges.

If you’re vaccinated then that means you care about others. You’re already doing your part.

You should feel guilty. We should shut down everything again. We have to defeat death. Going out could spread covid, cause car accidents, induce a heart attack, spread the flu… you could get hit by lightning!!! Keep everyone safe. Wrap us all up in bubble wrap. Keep us alive forever. Stay at home. Wear 5 masks. Stay safe and keep others safe op.

I was being sarcastic OP. The point is, we will all die someday. I’m over this obsession with covid. Frustrated that we are headed towards lockdowns again. Stupid freaking masks. Carry on. Live whatever life we have left!

If you go ahead and then judge others for traveling and doing the same, then yes you should feel guilty

Sounds like you made an honest effort and did most of what was asked of you. If everyone did the same as you, we wouldn't be in this mess.

Sounds like you did everything exactly right. Glad you had a good time, and thanks for being responsible!

Will there be a salary bubble like the housing bubble? Hearing how much people with 2-7 yrs experience are getting offered to move companies is blowing my mind.

I'm a Microsoft Dynamics and C# Developer at a Big 4 consulting firm. But... working with Dynamics for the last 5 or 6 years is starting to wear on me. The salary is great because there is a shortage of qualified Dynamics developers, but I want to do something else, even if that's just back to being a run of the mill C# Developer. Maybe this is more of a rant or I'm letting off steam, but has anybody on here ever essentially gone from a specialized type of roll to more general role?
