We went to a wedding and husband was not wearing a mask at the airport and in public places . He gets Covid and we find out several of the guests also got Covid . No way of knowing who was patient zero. We have a toddler who has symptoms (tested negative) but now can’t go to daycare and I’m also not feeling well but still negative. I’m angry with my spouse since even when he was sick he didn’t mask at home and refuses to isolate in his room (would eat in the living room).
Partner poll - is COVID causing you to fundamentally rethink whether you want to stay in consulting? Cannot stop thinking about using this disruptive moment to hang my own shingle and do something completely different - buy/start a small business. 22 years in consulting. Partner 7 yrs. Young family.
Some really good news on COVID 19 testing front.

Does anyone have insight on big tech in-house recruiting timelines? Seems COVID slowed them down significantly, but not sure by how much. Thanks!
Anyone know what the COVID vaccine roll out for Toronto is? When can we expect to get it and is there a website to register?
Fellow asian fishes in NYC, have you noticed or experienced covid related hate crimes and discriminations since the outbreak? I've been mainly staying within my area in LIC but two close friends recently were physically abused in the city and called "coronavirus". It makes me afraid to go back into the city and in all honesty I am disgusted by the level of maturity and stupidity of some people.
Hi guys! 2 questions if anyone knows:
1. Can I have my home address be in a different state while my home office is in a different state? My roommates and I are thinking of breaking our lease due to COVID-19 since we’re all quarantining out of state. I’m currently on OPT and my H1B will kick in in October. I am allowed to work from another state on OPT but I’m concerned on whether updating my home address to a different state will raise concerns.
2. Can this out of state address be my home...
Any attorneys exit PA for tax counsel jobs? Besides going to a law firm, what exits have you seen people make? Not interested in big law as I am already losing my mind working these covid hours.
I will work at a new agency next week. I couldn't meet the team in real life due to Covid/Distance but I spoke with them several times through Teams etc. I'm pretty confident that it will be a good experience but my exceptations and the reality could be very different.
When I'll be there, what are some team/agency red flags that would indicate I could potentially be in hell 😂 (or close)?
MBA admit here and have to put down a deposit soon, having serious cold feet right now due to the covid situation and potentially having to start virtually. Would love any perspective on how it's been particularly socially and what your schools' outlook on the fall is
Hey friends, lots of vaccine scheduling available. While the state's website is pretty slow, I highly recommend checking out Kroger's website. Its chatbot style, but it works. It might take a few searchers for it to work, but keep clicking and there should be appointments available. Also pro-tip, use different ATL Metro zipcodes, it sometimes works better even if your looking by distance: www.kroger.com/rx/covid-vaccine
Hi all, I am currently serving the notice period in EY GDS. I have been tested COVID positive. Can I avail pandemic leave in order to recover without extending my last working day? Thank you in advance!
I am interested in moving to another state and realized that this state has one of the most restrictive reciprocity rules in the country. I've passed multiple bar exams. However, I won't get any credit for time I worked in CA because CA isn't reciprocal. I swore I'd never take another bar after taking CA - and now I have to take another exam if we move. I worked in big law in CA for two years and get no credit! Yet the exam has been waived for new grads for COVID. It sure limits our move.
Any other districts closing? LAUSD just did for two weeks for corona virus that’s crazy. Stay safe y’all . Wash your hands and teach your kids to wash em too.

Hearing a lot about people moving out of the Bay Area. Are FAANG companies open to their employees moving out of SF now and working from anywhere (even once covid wfh ends)?
I have an H1b which I received in 2019 and was valid till august2021, due to covid I wasn't able to travel and then I switched to another firm last year in November. If I get visa transfer, will it provide me a validity back as I haven't used any on site time on that visa.

Started b school today. Long awaited work vacation, chance to meet others, explore new topics, and have an incredible experience has morphed into a poorly planned unpredictable zoom mess. Can’t help but feel disappointed :( I have been trying to staying neutral and somewhat positive but today’s first day experience has me anxious that this opportunity will be somewhat squandered bc of Covid. Sorry for the rant. Just don’t want to keep bottling this up inside

EY MD Poll: Before unlimited vacation we had 28 days (25 + 3). By closing the office in July and December they added 6 more days off , so apples to apples it’s 22. How many vacation days do you typically take in a year now?

Any advice on getting salvage bids for a damaged car? Insurance has given me a $400 bid but I'm not required to accept it. Damage to the bumper, both front fenders and hood, engine and rest of the car is fine. I had just put in a new Bosch alternator that cost me $380 🤦♀️
Thinking about getting an Audi eTron or a Jaguar i-Pace. Interested in hearing owner experiences for both... no, I don’t want to know what other car you think is better and I refuse to get a Tesla, so save it.
Interested in advice from older 🐠, is it worth it to buy a sportier/more expensive car in your mid 20s? Or is that money better spent investing?
I already max retirement accounts but I see a car as more than a machine to get from A>B and am worried that I drop $60-85k on a “fun car” and end up disappointed.
I’m set on the m340i jet black 19 rims but they only come in high performance non rft and all season rft. I’m trying to stay away from rft bc I heard it’s not great and prone to rim bending. So I’m leaning towards performance non rft but this means I’ll have to get winter wheels. Is it worth change out tires to rims twice a year? How much does that cost?
Thoughts on VW Tiguan?
Used clamshell-style ski racks on the roof of my sedan last year (pic below). Is it worth upgrading to a roof box? I don’t really have anywhere to store the box, so it would stay on for the winter (I usually take off the current ski racks when they’re not in use and just leave the crossbars on for the winter).
If you see a lot of a make and model for sale used with less than 50k miles is that a red flag?
Polestar 3 released. It’s ok, but $90k? I like the design of the Fisker more, which you can get for $50k with awd.
Lamborghini or Ferrari? And why?
For context, this latest Lamborghini advertisement has me considering Lamborghini as a grail brand after a solid 28 years of Ferrari fanboying.
BMW 5 Series or Audi A6?
Looking to lease a new one and I realize that BMW lease deals are better. But any insights on the performance and overall driving experience between the two cars?

2016 golf r, 105k miles for $22,500. Good idea?
Planning to lease a bmw for the first time. Is the inspection at the end of lease very detailed ? like in terms of scratches, dings, dents etc not planning to get intentionally 😁 but iam worried that for a leased car i would have to drive it more carefully and maintain it really well as compared to if had financed/ bought the same.
I like the look of a jeep but I need something a bit more refined for road trips. Any suggestions?
Are range rovers reliable vehicles?
Going to be in the market soon for a new car (sedan) to replace my old warhorse (2006 Camry). Considering a Lexus ES (both new and very lightly used - less than 10k miles) and Tesla 3 (only new, both in the same range depending on trim and options chosen). Primary factors are:
1- Reliability ; 2- Total Cost of Ownership; 3- Smooth and luxurious ride . Plan to keep car for 15+ years. Any recommendations on one vs the other? Or any other option I may have missed in this price range?

New to Fishbowl?

I’ve heard the same, as well as power sports dealers are running out of ATVs and other toys. I follow some ex-car dealer/buyers on YouTube and they confirm what you say about truck prices getting inflated, and now is not a good time to buy. But I don’t have 1st hand experience with any of this, aside from ATVs flying off the lots lol.
Used truck prices are outrageous, can probably find some good deals on 2020 models as dealerships are making way for 2021’s.
Best deals are on tundra and Tacoma leases. Both are not class competitive but the leases are cheap.
Trucks are extremely short supply atm, my friend leases them for his company and he's had a hard time getting his hands on any.
