Mentally done with COVID. I’m fully vaxxed and will happily wear masks anywhere (hey saves lipsticks and sunscreen), but if we have to shut down again I’m going mad

The shutdowns will continue until morale improves.

Found the tyrant!

When did we ever really shut down? If you're talking about not able to dine in at restaurants and bars, boohoo 😁

That has to be the most accurate map in history.

Perhaps you are mentally done. But there so many of us for whom it isn’t. I follow all the protocols. My family does. Yet, I cannot meet them. Why? There is a new delta variant surge and travel isn’t reopening any time soon. What do you propose we do? Having a meltdown doesn’t help… trust me, I have it on a weekly basis. Please have some compassion. Redirect your feelings in a healthy way that will have an overarching and positive effect on the society. Thank you.

I work 8+ hour shifts in the office as we are an essential business where masks are required at all times. Has anyone else had the experience of wearing a good mask at work and getting excruciating headaches at work that last for a few hours after work? I've already had an isolation period so it's not Covid, but I'm thinking it might be the higher levels of carbon monoxide, as I've tried wearing a different mask and did not have the same problem.

Can we finally agree that indoor office open floor layouts suck and are over rated now? And they should be changed because of COVID. I never want to have them back when returning to office because could never focus and do my work with the buzz around me. It was also a random invitation for co-workers to talk to me whenever they wanted at my desk, which was annoying lol

Hi all, I wondering what I should do i was planning on taking an advance Accounting course in January 2021. Part of my company benefits is tuition reimbursement.

My question here is should I be concerned I’m a target.

For those of you who left big 4 for industry - I’m seeing a lot of people saying they got 30% + raises when leaving. How did you find these jobs willing to pay that much more? Looking to leave at the M1 level and having trouble finding anything with much more than a 10-15% increase in base comp. from my current salary. Would it be dumb to leave for that low of a percentage increase? Some are offering equity in addition to the base comp. but hard to put a specific value to that now.
