I don’t get it

At least in our firm, it's more of a conversation to have the your team/manager and state of the project. If you say you think you shouldn't be traveling due to sickness, they probably don't want you with them to get the rest of the team sick!

Idk about you, but flexing involves muscles

Say there was a medical device that could optimize your brain to function to its fullest potential (think Limitless movie) - it’d make you ultra intelligent & peak your performance. It’s safe and offered to you free, but the catch is you have to listen to a 30 second sponsored ad in your head every hour on the hour. Would you get it?

I have a pyramid event tomorrow but I feel sick and I have a severe cold. Tickets have been purchased already, I am 100% certain it’s not covid because I took a test already. However, I don’t want to get anyone sick with cold. How do I handle this situation? Is it possible to let them know I can’t attend because of my cold even if the tickets have been purchased? I feel bad.

Hi Ladies! I was recently introduced to a new concept, and am curious to get thoughts of peers. Have you heard the term or ever experienced “medical gaslighting”? If so, what are your thoughts? I personally feel that it is relatively systemic, and likely impacts women more than men. What if anything can we do to push back against it?

Hearing about the ridiculous demands from the LA teachers union... Is anyone else frustrated with how political teaching has become? I'm not sure that I would teach at all if it was required to join the union. So sick of the pressure to back certain candidates, walk-outs, and viewpoints. My district has a negotiating body affiliated with the NEA, but it's voluntary to be a member. I'm glad to live in a state with options.

Need advice: was talking to this hinge guy for nearly 2 months ( only 2 physical dates and numerous long phone calls). Complimented me endlessly, told me he liked me etc. Well, this weekend he canceled our 3rd date twice in a row because he was sick. I haven’t heard from him since cancelation. I checked his hinge profile and he updated his location to NYC from the town we live in hundreds of miles away. Im gutted. What would u do? I know its early, pls dont shame me :(
