So Pwc is handling Covid the best, but don’t forget what they are really like... https://www.reddit.com/r/cringe/comments/6eh795/the_second_hand_embarrassment_is_strong_on_this/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
I’ve joined the league of Covid layoffs. I was in an Art Director role with an experiential agency. I’d love to move into a more strategy focused role next — any advice on how best to pivot?
Umm I'm a prostitute?? My now ex believed he deserved sex when he gave me covid and stayed with me to take care of me, so apparently I owed him sex? I refused because for obvious reasons...I wasn't feeling well and wtf am I doing with a boy who throws a tantrum when not getting sex. Lol so all this - I think I might have been a prostitue this whole time.....
I’m a first time dog owner, got a covid puppy, and would appreciate some advice around what to do with my dog, if I have to return to the office 3 days a week. I imagine I’ll be gone for about 9 hours. Do people just pay the $20-30 for a dog walker in Toronto? Isn’t that a lot of money? My dog’s breed doesn’t actually need much walking but he definitely would get bored by himself for so long. I am so torn, between taking a work from home 4/5 days job vs intense hybrid corporate work.
If anyone thinks Coronavirus situation isn't at least in part politically motivated is lying to themselves. How can you tell? Look what conservative states are doing vs liberal.
Biden administration released a 200 page covid response plan today. This is the type of leadership the American people deserve. https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/National-Strategy-for-the-COVID-19-Response-and-Pandemic-Preparedness.pdf
My brother is a mechanic with 10+ years experience but was laid off due to COVID. He's having a hard time even finding jobs to apply for and asked me for advice. I don't even know what someone can do without a degree. He has valuable hard skills but I just don't think there's a demand in NYC right now. Should I advise him to go to school? He'd have to fully finance his degree and I'm just not sure if it's worth it for him to start over at the bottom, or what industry he'd even fit in...
Trump has cancelled his election night party at the Trump International Hotel. It’s supposedly more likely bc his campaign is broke and can’t make COVID accommodations, rather than bc he doesn’t think he can win.
Not sure if I buy this, but would be great if it turns out true.... Cliffs: Author is predicting we are over the infection hump with as many as 50-66% of Americans already infected with Covid and possessing natural resistance
In Georgia. Going out to eat tomorrow. Worth risking Covid so I don’t have to clean the dishes after dinner.
I'm shocked by how many smart people on here emphasize the wrong things in preventing the spread of COVID. It doesn't matter if a place looks clean and feels safe. Clorox wipes and gloves do not help much. The issue is how much time you spend close to other people, especially indoors, whether or not you are wearing masks (and, if so, N95 or surgical) and the air exchange rate. It isn't "safe" to eat indoors at a restaurant because it looks clean and the staff bleach the tables.
hot take- as soon as the election in Nov happens, covid won't matter nearly as much to news outlets
Stephen Miller’s wife tested positive for covid, she is also Mike pence’s press secretary, won’t be long before we hear that the vp and trump have it
Online dating right now is kind of a no-go with the whole COVID thing, so would it be bad to sleep with my neighbor? Is it like sleeping with a co-worker (sh**ing where one eats)?
Nanny during covid time took cash payments. How do we claim it on FSA. This is my first year on fsa and I learned i have to have paper trail to prove the payments. Nanny can sign on receipt but won't share ssn. What are my options. Would I be able to claim. I had to let her go when I learned paper requirement.
Does anyone else feel like it's the end of the world? Covid, wildfires, protests... What else could go wrong??

Happy Wednesday, y'all!
Saw a girl who I don't personally know on a dating app, but know we have a mutual friend. Considering asking the mutual friend for an introduction (if they think the other party would be interested). How do I approach this? I can see how this would play out at a gathering in-person but feels more awakeard virtually...Any thoughts?
How tough is it for a litigator to go in-house?
Does anyone else notice a pattern where others treat them lopsided like a servant? Then when I pipe up to correct or assert my equality of power in an interaction they try a couple times to dominate and put it back or immediately sever the tie. It is a crystal clear pattern.
Starting a new job next week and was surprised to see orientation is in person! Most of my team is in CA and I am in NY, and the expectation is that I’m hybrid on a “go in when there’s a specific need” basis - are many places doing in-person orientation now?
I’m up for a laptop upgrade and Mac is an option (as well as windows) is there any negative impacts with running workday on a Mac? Or maybe some other issues that I might not be aware of?
I feel my husband n I don't really like each other. He is constantly gas lighting me, arguing n criticizing me - my body, eating preferences, views, my attitude towards his family, failure as a supportive wife. I do all household chores happily but no thanks. Instead he says big deal, he used to do them before marriage n I'm not doing any favour. I admit I snap at him, raise my voice when I dont know how to react/respond and answer back rudely. Please help - I want to improve my marriage.
Do you all have common interests with your closest friends? If not, do you show interest in each other’s varied interests? How often do you text? I’m at a point where not having much in common with 2 close friends (I met over the past 6 years) makes communicating a chore. Idk if I have unrealistic expectations of friendship in the modern age.
I’d like to start setting myself up to eventually be C-Level, SVP, Executive level, etc. 10-15 years down the line. Will an MBA help me get there?
What a scumbag-woke up today to an email from the project MD questioning why my Uber ride on Thursday from the airport to my apt is $3 more than previous weeks. Is "go fuck a goat" a proper response?
How do you merge decor when moving in with your partner? Moving in with my boyfriend, and he has truly godawful taste in decor and “art”. We’re talking whatever was free from family plus hopelessly generic and mismatched prints from travels. I’m passionate about interior design and have chosen everything in my home to be “just so”. Obviously, our shared home needs to be just that - ours and shared. How do we integrate both of our valued pieces and vibes in an elegant, tasteful, stylish way?
