Are vaccinated people so concerned with the unvaccinated because they are worried about getting them sick? I mean after all vaccinated people can still transmit the virus just like the unvaccinated.
Feeling sick from anxiety this morning. Knowing I have to leave today and tough week ahead looming
I am really ill with the flu but I have an end of study Steerco meeting tomorrow. What should I do?
Need in-law advice. We’ve been very careful with COVID. Our children are too young to be vaccinated. We are visiting parents-in-law (elderly, vaccinated) and sister-in-law (her and her husband vaccinated, two small kids aren’t but they arrived early and are past incubation period). This is an isolated lake house. Turns out this whole other family is staying in the house. We weren’t informed. They are not vaccinated yet all are eligible. One, a camp counselor, is now ill w/ fever, cough, etc.
The idea that the vaccine will somehow be dangerous in the future is kind of ludicrous to me. Do those saying this really believe that something that could essentially wipe out 170M Americans, including the president, pretty much the entire medical industry, university students, and others would be this heavily recommended by lifelong experts? Do those saying this really think they’re smarter than everyone else?
Desi guys look for american born desi girls or white girls for their American adventures or sought of to fulfill their American fantasies but when it comes to settling down, they go back to the age old "my parents want me to choose a girl from India" BS. Sick of it!
I'm getting sick of my brother that keeps stringing along and hooking up with women, never settling down. He's 45 and gone through 2 divorces already (guess why?) He keeps telling me he wants to find love, then next day he brags about all the women.. the cognitive dissonance man
My sister and I are 29 and 31, respectively. I’m struggling with something that has irked me our entire lives. My parents pay for things like her dog’s medical bills, vacations and moving expenses. They always want to help. The problem is they’ve never offered to pay for those things for me, and I’ve never asked because I’m a fully grown adult and don’t want them to spend their retirement on us. She has savings and isn’t struggling financially. Why does this bother me so much?
FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴
Observation: The “vaccinations are a personal medical choice so get off my back” crowd uses fundamentally the same argument as the pro-choice crowd. And the “require vaccinations to go to school, work, mass gatherings, etc.” tactic is similar to those advocated to make the lives of undocumented immigrants hard.
Has anyone taken Amtrak recently? Im traveling from NY to Providence by NER and want a row to myself. Ill be leaving on Thursday and returning on Tuesday in mid- September. Is it better to reserve a seat in business class or try for coach
Taking medical leave because of my anxiety and depression issues. Need to figure out what to do. Perhaps an intensive outpatient program. Terrified of what’s to come
I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
My doctor wants me to take a medical LOA. Thinks I’m too stressed at work/have so much anxiety about work that it’s having physical effects (heart palpitations/chest pains/panic disorder). I know I should take the time, but feel bad letting people down while my firm is so busy. What’s wrong with me?
TFW you're already sick of winter and realize winter hasn't even officially started yet.
There was this convo where a PML wanted to check with his counselee’s doctor if they are actually sick. I can’t seem to find it anymore. Can someone help me find it? I must read all of it. I can’t go to sleep without it.
Received text today from USCIS supposedly? Anyone else? We submitted our medical with application so not sure if this is spam (and if so very stupid)…
Did any US citizens move successfully to Europe? I have a medical thing, as a freelancer I can’t afford healthcare here, and I’m afraid I will become broke and homeless living in NYC. I want a better quality of life, and to just live while I still have time...
India has ignored it’s poor hospital infrastructure for decades. The number of medical schools & per capita hospital beds are too low compared to the population size. Lots of brain drain. The best & trained doctors are moving abroad. I hope we learn from this & govt does something about this.
Struggling with my husband about his pot smoking. Long story short, he's always been a pot smoker (not during the business hours, but before and after work). Before we had the baby, Ive made it very clear that I dont want him smoking weed so frequently. I understand wanting to unwind before dinner/bed time, but I believe smoking several times a day is unhealthy. We have a 2 months old baby now, and during his paternity leave, he smoked several times a day and napped w. Baby. Continued-
Debate: who is the B1 of the B4?? 🤔 I have respect for all as I work with them all but would love to hear opinions
Just clogged my toilet. How many points?
Dear new freelancers: stop lowballing your rate by charging like you were a fulltimer. You have to pay for your own healthcare, equipment, holidays, sick days AND downtime between gigs.
I have an offer for a senior associate role at a $1B private equity. Currently a manager though, so a downgrade. Getting pay rise. Pros and cons of losing title?
What firms are doing really cool / innovative stuff in the area of Organization Design / Operating Model? (Not B4 / ACN / MBB)
Going into my first round of interviews with BCG a couple of weeks from now. Because of covid, the interviews (a fit and a case) will be over a video call. Any tip on how to handle the case interview on video rather in person?
I heard my teammate interviewing for another company in the next conference room... ...turns out it’s the same company I’m interviewing with later today. Let the hunger games begin!
So burned out from surviving COVID at AWS that I'm actually thinking about going back to consulting since it was less work. How's the Transactions/M&A world doing these days?
Anyone know how what the salary range is like for senior analyst for paid search at Edelman?
Have seen a lot of referral threads on here. Since most of us have at-will employment couldn't we be fired if our firms found us soliciting other firms? I know it's unlikely but still seems to be a
Honest question. When a client asks you a question that you need to refer to the billing attorney (assume it makes sense to do so and copy the client on convo in adding them in) are you all refraining from using the term billing attorney to clarify a role or is it pretty common to do so in client communications? Had one attorney show a sensitivity to the term but never had that happen before. Wondering if that is a common or uncommon sinsitivity?
Poll: IPad Pro 11” vs IPad Pro12.9” Why: Because I have Best Buy points I need to use in 2 days. How many: $500 equivalent. Use: Just traveling, reading, etc. have a MacBook Pro, so definitely nota supplement to a laptop. Commenters: “you can buy something other than iPad”. Yes, I can but I have most electronic gadgets I need and I rent, so no big appliances. But open to suggestions if there’s something very out of the ordinary from Best Buy. Thank you in advance :)
Does anyone else feel as though they ought to either (1) quit your job or (2) cry when senior folks in your department boast somehow (or complain) they’ve not taken a week+ long vacation in two years?
