Do you check emails on the weekend because of covid wfh situation/generally? Or check email but wait to reply on Monday unless an urgent response is required?
My principal approached me in the car pick up line on Friday to inform me that I’ve taken to many days off & school has just started. I took 1day off when my daughter tested positive for Covid, I had an doctor’s appt that had been scheduled 6 months ago to see the hematologist. Being that I’m anemic, current labs showed I need to have 2 iron infusions. I put in for 2 more days off to have that done. He told me in the future to wait until a work day! We done have any until December!!
I need a part time job to be able to support my family that lost most of their income due to Covid. I’m a first generation immigrant college grad, which for me means student loans and parents with unstable jobs. Any ideas what I could do to make some extra money besides retail?

Just letting everyone know that the covid 19 trend is the "covid 20"...just like in freshman year in college...if you didnt put on 20 pounds...good for you but you're not in the cool group. Please refrain from shaming those that put on a few pounds here and there.
For those of you that have had COVID, how long did you wait before returning to work? (remotely) Still feeling a bit clammy and my back is super achey but overall much better than I was a few days ago. Just curious when others said “good enough” and started working.

Coronavirus is still lurking behind the scenes. News reports are so vague. They Don't even break it down by state?
Hey everyone, so my sister and her boyfriend have both gained about 60-70 pounds since COVID started. I’m getting very concerned for them and I’ve seen firsthand how they’re developed awful eating and drinking habits and they hardly ever exercise. I’m very concerned for them, but I have no idea how to talk about it with them and not make them angry or hurt. Any advice on how to have this difficult conversation?

Going home this weekend - what is the most time efficient (minimal disruption to work) way to get rapid COVID test?
Just need to vent: my friend refuses to bring up the topic of covid and how it will likely effect her wedding. She’s just moving forward like we aren’t in a pandemic and it’s becoming exhausting trying to be supportive and excited for her when it feels like she’s living in a fantasy world. She just had us purchase bridesmaids dresses and I can’t help but feel like it was a complete waste of a few hundred dollars. I feel bad for having these thoughts but I’m over it.

If you apply to an audit client, how restrictive is it? Would you need to let your company know, even if you are just applying? I am in consulting so I have never been on an audit engagement. I hear if you do exit, you will have additional paperwork to fill but for the most part, is it easy/not a big deal?
Had a discussion with my father that he believes relationships are only out of convenience; over time no one actually wants to be married. Example: someone to cook for you, clean while you’re busy working, etc. Women, do you feel this as well? What is convenient for you?
Buy gold, buy silver. Physical is best, tradeable assets that let you redeem for tangible are second best: $PSLV and $PHYS are best Gold hit $2K+ an ounce today - for those who are 'TLDR', that ain't good. The FED is going to raise rates soon to combat stagflation but it will not solve the entire puzzle. Precious metals, metal miners, standalone property in healthy markets, and for those who can handle risk, cryptocurrency, are your safe havens. The clues are there; we're toast; good luck.
I received a $500 visa gift card and want to get something nice for myself. Any suggestions?
Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
4PQE. UK. Have been offered a job at another firm but they've only agreed to match my salary. I went back asking for more and have been sternly told that's not possible as I'm already being offered more than what their bandings allow. The new firm seems like it would be better for the sector I'm specialising in but anyone else I hear that moves tends to get a considerable payrise! I feel reluctant to move if I'm not getting a big pay jump... Is moving for the same pay a done thing?
