This will happen to many Trump supporters. Until it hits them in the nuts is when they actually wake up. Fox News and the many irresponsible Republicans in government are causing this to happen. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/us-news/man-who-said-coronavirus-hoax-22038755
Question time! Two part. 1) What dating sites or apps are you on and 2) do you feel like it’s been particularly tough dating in your 30s/40s during COVID, assuming that we probably date (on average) more seriously than 20s peeps? I personally have only been on one date! A zoom one last week.
COVID would be over if everyone had listened to Trump's very smart suggestion to inject disinfectant into ourselves. But the lamestream media made fun of him and told us to follow Fauxi instead.
Partner poll - is COVID causing you to fundamentally rethink whether you want to stay in consulting? Cannot stop thinking about using this disruptive moment to hang my own shingle and do something completely different - buy/start a small business. 22 years in consulting. Partner 7 yrs. Young family.
I am heading into IVF and the clinic made us sign a document saying if one of us is tested positive for COVID, the whole procedure will be canceled. The testing must be performed at their site. My husband’s mom has been organizing a big family trip for two months. I already excused myself from that trip. But I am very worried my husband my get covid from this trip. His mom has a lot of friends who don’t believe in Covid, and she volunteers at a 2nd hand store. What would you do if you were me
Took advantage of my self-isolation to fully marie-kondo my apartment. Now I need to take a giant pile of stuff to Goodwill. I guess it will sit in my closet until this coronavirus situation clears up
Husband tested positive for COVID while on a business trip this week. He’s coming home tomorrow and I’m terrified of catching it (am 31 weeks pregnant.) I am vaccinated and boosted.
We have a relatively large house so I’ve prepared a guest bedroom where he’s going to continue to quarantine but any other tips on staying safe that worked for you if someone tested positive in your house when someone test positive?
Finally got my first dose of the COVID vaccine. I find it sad I haven’t been this excited about anything in a long time.
Anyone else considering quitting? I use to look forward to going to work. This morning I sat on the bed and cried. I have health conditions, my school will not accommodate, and we had Covid-19 cases last week.
Second year lateraling to a new firm and changing practice group - do I have any ground to stand on as far as negotiating bonuses? (Signing, Covid, year end, etc.)
If I originally got the Moderna vaccine, is it advisable (ie is it better protection against COVID) to get a Pfizer booster? I don’t see any info about which booster to get if you didn’t get J&J
I’ve seen a few posts about long waits but does anyone know the typical time it takes to receive an offer or rejection after lateral callbacks? Or, if we could start a list of recent experiences with offer timing that would give me an idea. I feel like covid has made everything wonky. Pref big law corporate positions
Just saw a meme about the corona virus test feeling like you’re being “poked in the brain”. Can anyone who’s had it done she’d some light here?
Feeling trapped in my own house from working from home too long. I need a place to go to work everyday that isn’t my house but obviously not a lot of options since a lot of things are closed due to Covid. Anyone else find a way to deal with this?

I see many people moving to suburban areas such as Kennesaw and Cumming. Is this is new trend in wake of covid-19.. thoughts?

I feel sooo empty on Sunday evenings now 😞 miss my packing routine with GOT in the background!
Bit suprised by the aggressive bid this evening. Is the market setting up for a suprise sell. TD Sequential on a daily basis shouts YES. Last time we did this, had a huge down day. Basically, up for 8-9 straight closes, then 4 closes later, if still higher than these early closes, sell. That's the setup. It worked in June. Will it work now? I know I said bullish; but I think at this level, you have to be short just to see whether the bulls can save it at that HWB long at 3132.00.

I recently found out I was “promoted” or giving a higher title, same pay. I was told HR was updating employees titles based on the work they do… Is that even a thing?? My mid yr review is coming, should I just ask for more money?

What age did you move out of your parents house? I am 26 and live with my parents. Honestly, I don't have any desire to move out of my parents house.
Is it possible to love someone in a romantic but “non sexual” way?
Not to say by any means that sex is ruled out, but instead of sexually fantasizing about them, your primary drivers for loving them are who they are as a person, similar life journey etc, and that you would love to have a future with them?
Stupid appraiser under appraised my condo by 25k from the agreed upon price. Realtor disputed, and she texted me that condo finally got the fully appraised (500k). However, 2 days before the closing, my lawyer calls me that buyer says he is pulling out of the deal if I don’t lower price to appraised price by 25k because property was under appraised and he didn’t pay attention when he signed the docs. He claims he doesn’t have extra 25k to put down to make the math (contd)
The NY telecommuting tax rule is complete BS. If I didn’t live in NY and didn’t deal with any NY clients, I shouldn’t be required to pay tax because my company’s office (which has been essentially closed) is in NYC /rantover

I feel you. I used to be the “planner” of the group too. I have since stepped back from always playing that role and also found some new friends
I was this person, too. My last straw was when I ended up covering a $1k cabin bc everyone bailed. When people want to make plans now, I ask for budget, then share what places fit it and ask for money upfront with the understanding that if they bail, they don’t get it back. If they don’t want to do that, then sorry boo, I’m not booking it and we’re all getting our own hotel room. Take it or leave it 🤷🏽♀️
I agree - ask for the $ upfront, if they can’t commit they aren’t guaranteed a spot 🤷♀️
Your friends don't get to bail and not pay. That's not a thing in my friend group.
