Ok you win, we’re not the most sophisticated people on the planet either. A very good friend of mine, a Sikh Indian (I have zero idea if i just represented that correctly) got the crap beat out of him on Long Island right after 9/11 for apparently “causing it” - so I hear you and I give up. Shameful nonetheless.

Thanks appreciate it - not about winning but I really appreciate that you’re accepting that this is a problem. And I’m not saying shit about the state of our country - it’s an international issue. Minorities are also being racist towards Chinese people too so it’s not a white person problem.

Why does it say “student” instead of “students”?

Fair point

In their defense - the Brits are a mostly sun deprived ignorant bunch who beat the crap out of lesbians on busses (google it), and make complete drunken fools out of themselves whenever they see the sun in Spain (also google that). We kicked their asses back in 1776, they deserved it. Probably should do it again.

I ended up sharing them below. I don’t think this is the place to go into political debates. I was just really sad and actually to some extent scared of the realities out there because of friends experiences as well to top what’s happened to some. I hope you’re not rejecting the experience of these people. There’s no agenda here except to educate people that this isn’t okay and shouldn’t be okay. There’s no reason to feel attacked here if you’re not part of the group that’s actually being attacked

unpopular opinion… but i feel like my bf is too passive, to the point he doesn’t seem to care as much. Whenever I get sick all he says is “oh no feel better!” And doesn’t text until I say I’m feeling better. I’ve explained to him that I like to feel taken care of in cases where I’m sick and I reciprocate when he is. He says he’s giving me space so I explained that I would wish he can offer help or ask questions like so. But he still reverts to the same response. How should I process this?

Recently lateralled to a new firm and I have mild “PTSD” from my old firm 😶 everything from the way docs are saved on the system, file naming, email writing style, team conventions etc - I keep thinking any small mistake would get me yelled at / be at the receiving end of snarky or passive aggressive emails but people at my new firm are so lovely and far from that. I’m trying really hard to move past this and my new colleagues are probably getting sick of my questions 😂 Anyone else can relate?

Really starting to wonder why people in PA are so underpaid? Hearing my friends, who work in other other industries, talk about their higher salaries almost makes me sick. They work 9-5, have less of a workload, and WAY more of a work/life balance. Not here to complain, just think this is a major issue in our industry and something to consider since turnover is supposedly at an all time high.
