#OffTopic I used to be a Chill and Calm Guy when I joined org. before COVID but now I am turned into Aggressive, Angry, Irritable guy ( Not Intensionally ) No one wants to talk to me nicely even my family... any suggestions any help ?
Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
I have a contingent offer after being laid off in spring due to COVID. Since then the job market has obviously been tough, so a few buddies and I started a start up that has done very well, but we haven’t filed for LLC status yet (keeps pushing back). We have ~10 guys working on various areas. I just received an offer back in my usual industry, and have been truthful in my experiences. Will they ding me in a background check since there’s no 1099 to prove formal employment? FYI I have references
Aw man, someone attacked our beloved uncle roger apparently due to covid racism https://www.instagram.com/tv/CG_GxKLBfPh/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
My toxic trait is that I get lowkey excited for higher covid cases because it means further extending WFH and less life wasted around the office.
For those who’ve been VERY careful throughout covid (aka takeout only, no gatherings, outdoor activities only, etc), when are you easing up? I received my first shot, but I’m hesitant to totally let go just yet given we now have all 3 major variants in my state, my city has been a popular tourist destination, and it’s hard to tell who is and isn’t vaccinated. What % for first shot received or fully vaccinated do you think makes sense for easing up? Or just wait til herd immunity?
Wats your take guys ? I don't like hybrid model as it works for those who are locals of same city where the office is . For me i have to leave my parents, hometown and travel 2000kms to Bangalore for joining office how it is hybrid for me ? I still worry about myself and family health not sure about COVID. Also most of my team sits in Hyderabad few are in Bangalore .office should be optional. Indeed we were able to work in past 2 years right ? Then why force people to office ?
Do I have a drinking problem? I live alone. I cannot wait for wine at 6. I work my ass off sober 12 hrs a day. Then I drain 2 bottles of wine. I wake up parched and confused and do it again. I did not have Excedrin yesterday and had to shuffle to Rite Aid to get it. Plus a xanax to chill. But I WORK and produce and never let anyone down. Is this OK? I just work, drink, sleep, repeat.
There's a lot of pressure from parents for us to return to in person instructionin my district despite rising COVID numbers. Is anyone else experiencing this?
Thoughts on visiting Singapore right now w coronavirus at a lot of the connection ports in Asia? Healthy (to my knowledge) 23 year old girl. Flights are cheap af
My company is transitioning from wfh back to the office, but everyone returning to the office is supposed to be vaccinated. I told my boss I would NOT be getting the vaccine and he said I wouldn’t have a desk in the office until I did. So I told him I would continue to wfh. He said that “wouldn’t work.” After our phone call, I got an invite for a zoom conference with my boss and an HR rep!? They’re infringing on my rights by requiring a vaccine. What can I do to make sure I keep my job?
Genuinely confused as to why so many state and local governments are dropping all covid safety measures. Things have been trending downward, and that’s great, but almost the entire country is still at high community transmission levels. I don’t understand the metric they are using to gauge things all of a sudden.
How are folks feeling about the recent violence towards the Asian community? For the Asians in this group, how are you feeling about your own sense of safety around the city?
Are any other plaintiff’s attorneys getting extremely low settlement offers & seeing adjusters use COVID as leverage?
I am taking another sick day this coming Monday. It's necessary for both my physical and mental health, which are severely compromised due to the stress of this insane school year (and the last one, and the spring before that -- I think this is cumulative with COVID, the political situation, etc.). I have never taken this many sick days during ANY school year in my 20+ years of teaching. Is anyone else experiencing this? Is anyone else having anxiety about taking so many days off?
Hi college men and women. I have a question for you, if you don’t mind. My HS Senior son has received acceptance letters from a few schools and will soon be deciding. A) he hasn’t been able to visit any of the remote schools due to COVID and he likely won’t get many good visits before decision day B) his HS senior year sucked thanks to COVID. Would you jump into college as a freshman this fall or take a year off?

This needs to be said. If your firm is not doing the below, or it’s doing the opposite of the below, your firm is faking interest in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I). Continued in comments.
Just got a gift from a co worker. Guess I'll make that my holiday bonus by a degree of separation. Thanks Accenture.
I billed 9 hours to my client, but really I’ve been in bed and watched Seinfeld all day. Am I going to hell?
As soon as my coworker found out I'd be working from the west coast for a bit, they set up 9am (6 for me) meetings for the next 3 days...I do their whole fucking job on this project but I have to play nice since they're my superior. What a waste of time and I'm tired af

If a partner sent out a racist email and it got forwarded to you, would you report it to ethics? He basically suggested a team name that equates to something along the lines of "ching chang chong".

How badly have you fucked up with a client? Not me but a former colleague (not in KPMG) once dropped a whole database - it was the only copy of that dataset. It was a miracle that we were forgiven.
Deloitte. Does anyone still play Mini Deloitte?
