Annoying how the hospitality industry cut corners for COVID precautions but now are still keeping those corners cut just due to it saving money. Think it'll ever return back to normal completely?
People who had covid: Are you out dating as normal and not telling people you had covid? People who haven’t had covid: Are you willing to date people who had covid ?
Favour to ask: I'm building a virtual learning platform to help lawyers overcome some of the barriers we are all experiencing in our legal practices right now in the post coronavirus normal. I would really appreciate your feedback to a short survey (less than three minutes to complete) I've put together as it will help shape how the platform supports our needs in the coming year. And yes, once you complete the survey, you can get beta access to the platform itself. Survey is here: lawtrp.link/launchsurvey Thank
Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent. For example, company says, “Parents, please share pictures of working from home with your kids during Covid” for a diversity and inclusion project. Undoubtedly someone responds, “what about my plant babies? 🤣”. I don’t want sympathy but I find it childish. Just give us the courtesy of understanding that plants and pets are not the same. Stop “me too’ing”
Has anyone shot any spots off shore during Covid and have flown English speaking talent from say from Vancouver to like South Africa? Has it been doable during Covid? Any challenges? Just curious
Help! I’m going to a delayed-due-to-covid evening cocktail wedding reception In October in central Massachusetts. I have a closet full of dresses and a black pantsuit, all appropriate, but some are several years old or dont fit perfectly.

How to set boundaries at work with the Covid campaigns? We’re already working long hours during the week. I really can’t take this on the weekends too. I know you’re supposed to ‘save your job’ but...
Want to buy property in / near NYC. I know with covid prices in the city (I’m assuming the 5 boroughs) went down, while prices outside of the city went up. Is that enough of a move in the market to make it worth it to buy in the city (and not in Long Island for example)?
Anyone been to Disneyland lately? Are there still long lines? My wife and I have been under a rock staying at home due to covid and having a newborn at home and being extra safe, but I wanted to take my wife to Disneyland for Halloween. Is it relatively covid safe there?
I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
Anyone missing the office chairs? I don’t have the best office chair at home, so I’m thinking about buying an ergonomic chair...not sure if I’m wasting money or it’s a good investment for covid...
If I’m leaving my current company for a new job and I really like the printer my current company gave me for WFH at the start of COVID, can I make them an offer to buy it from them?

About to go to a concert with the big bosses. Haven’t gone to one since Covid and still a little anxious socially. Any tips on how to conduct myself?
People who got promoted last year - how do you feel about it? I feel guilty given that most people didn’t even get a raise (in the UK). I find it hard to reconcile with the COVID gloom
For those who’ve had Covid, did your cough come and go? I’m having pretty bad coughing attacks in the morning but resolving itself by midday. Hoping it’s just allergy symptoms but wanted to see if anyone had a similar experience that turned out to be Covid
I have a question/topic that has been on my mind since this whole COVID thing started. With all the anti-Asian sentiment going on, companies (at least mine) are now all of a sudden reacting TBC..
It's been around 14 weeks since I filed my tax returns along with a new ITIN application for my wife through an in person appointment at the local Chicago office. My profile is still not available on the "Where's my refund" page. Called the ITIN helpline couple weeks back and they said neither application was in the system yet and this could be due to covid processing delays. Anyone else facing lengthy delays for ITIN / tax refunds. Thanks!

I committed to being here for 3 years to get that pension $. But it’s been 6 weeks and I already hate it. Someone please tell me it gets better.

How shocking is/was for you to find managers of 22 years old, Sr Mgrs of 23 and Directors of 27 vs whole industry out there? Is that affecting somehow the professionalism and driving required changes and decisions?
I don’t understand why people complain about comp at their firms… if you don’t like what you’re getting paid then leave it’s not that hard in this market lol
Flying internationally for a wedding from the US (to Spain). Delta looks like the starting prices are lowest but I’m definitely not going to be cramped in economy. How is Comfort+ international? Does anyone strongly advise against delta & have recommendations for other airlines? Thanks in advance!

I’m an early promoter manager at a small boutique firm and love my bosses, the wlb, and the pay. However, I feel I have become complacent. Should I try to move firms during this hot market knowing short term pay, job title, and MBA admission chances next fall will probably take a hit? I want to keep learning and growing but feel it has stagnated, and long term compensation upside is higher at a larger firm
What consulting firm are you with and when are you expected to come back to the office, even if it’s in some hybrid capacity?
Asking people who went from big 4 to mbb, is it much more “difficult”? If so? How much more?
