My wife and I are vaccinated. My sister and her husband are not bc they say there’s no long term results on the vax and they’re family planning. Mow they’re coming into town late summer. I don’t feel comfortable meeting up with them, not sure how to put it into words. Help.
I feel like I’m on the outside looking in and I don’t like what I see. I haven’t returned to teaching this year because I was overwhelmed by what was being asked of us and chose to use all of my sick time instead. From this perspective, I see teachers being used and abused. I see teachers asking questions about situations that should never be tolerated. We are the professionals. Why are we allowing this? It’s the Stockholm Syndrome for education. We provide a valuable service. Remember that.
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?
This country needs labor laws that actually protect workers is when time like this comes, average folks like us don't have to worry to sick about layoffs.
I need serious advice. I’m so sick of the one matrimonial site I’m on. Any suggestions on which ones actually work? Any success stories from those of you who went this route? 30F fwiw.
Can anybody suggest any books or resources to get smart on medical device marketing and/or medical device manufacturing?
😂 I love all the people who look clearly VERY concerned about the "smoke" coming out of the air vents on the plane. I love the people who freak out and ask the FA even more. Sick pleasures.
Just got back from a team dinner with the practice leader. I almost gagged myself with my spoon when everyone would laugh at his asinine jokes. #BrownNosers Corporate politics really make me sick.
What options do I have to leave my current job? - L1-A status (so tied to this job/company) - H1-B approved, but not used yet - I-140 approved - I-485 receipt notice received, no biometrics, AP or EAD yet My job is mentally affecting me and I'm literally sick everyday. I know the right answer is the stick it out since I'm so close, but any other creative alternatives?
NJ fishes, could you please recommend places for medical for the greencard process? Thanks!
If we’re calling this a war, know your part. Medical staff are the front line, the grunts, the ones pulling long shifts and facing death head on. Everyone else is in the rear supporting what they need
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
Have any of you had to deal with a friend cheating the system to get the covid vaccine? I’m in a state where they work on an honor system and don’t ask to see your medical records etc. but you sign a statement saying you’re eligible. I want to confront this friend and tell them what they did doesn’t sit right with my values and wondering if anyone has been through a similar experience with a friend or relative?
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
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!

Has anyone taken a short term leave of absence for medical reasons ? How much does it affect you?
I just learned that my younger adult sibling has been severely, deeply depressed. This surfaced when sib said they needed help moving and the family showed up to find that the entire apartment was under 3-4ft of trash, including a significant amount of rotten food. (Sib has no sense of smell due to past medical issues.) We are floored. Sib is very private and no one knew. With COVID, no one has been in the apartment. Sib’s supposed to be moving across the country, and we’re worried…
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 work at a faang but I realized I’m really sick of tech after being in it for the past few years. I want to to go to a business school to chill for 2 years and think about what I want to do.

Hey 🐠, I’m trying to understand if I need to be looking for lateral exit opportunities from a compensation perspective. I’m a Manager in the M&A IT practice, 12 YOE (7 in Tech and 5 in Consulting). I am happy with the work I do and the people I work with are tolerable. New base salary is $178K starting this month. Asking because I’ve heard that people should keep jumping from one company to another in Consulting to have a competitive comp. Basically guys, is my compensation competitive?
