How many calls have you had on Teams/Zoom/Skype/Webex etc? I'm wondering how many hours of my life were spent on "can everyone please go on mute" and "let's take it offline" 😬

Probably the equivalent of a year, but the combined effect feels like a lifetime, leaving me prematurely old and wishing for the sweet release of eternal sleep.

Add in the “Oh.. I was talking on mute” and general slowness of connectivity issues, and 15 minutes of every meeting is wasted.

Every time you start a Zoom call, it should start with the *holy spirit activate* chant. Can we all sign a petition to do that? 😂

I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?

Ever heard “omg how are you single, you are fit, handsome and successful”. Gets on my nerves every time. I would like to be in a relationship but dating as a gay man is wack.
