I’m so happy that I work with people that use Devil Wears Prada memes

The amount of times I’ve had to refrain myself from telling clients “the details of your incompetence do not interest me” 😂

I understand we have an honor system with return to office. I have a quite a few coworkers who haven’t taken the vaccine (lots of antivaxxers here) who have made it clear they intend to lie in order to return to office/client site. Is this normal at other firms or is this BAH only?

PowerPoint gurus - I’m helping a client find short term help for an important presentation. Please DM me if you are good at storytelling and slide design. You will be compensated for this work.

Nothing illegal or fishy here. Thanks!

Now that the CDC says no masks needed indoors if vaccinated, is anybody concerned what that means for kids under 12? I’m assuming that the honor system isn’t entirely going to work (I.e., some unvaccinated people will go maskless). I don’t want my 5 and 7 year olds around unvaccinated unmasked strangers, but it’s also a bummer to stop taking them places. Not that I was taking them that many places, but the occasional grocery store, shoe store, etc. seems riskier now.

Where are you shopping for clothes for return to office? Our firm’s dress code has not changed from what it was pre-COVID and I’m finding that many stores no longer carry work-appropriate attire. Help?! For reference, our official policy is business professional, but people tend to dress it down a bit to semi-business casual.

I'm a 'Consultant' who's worked as a Product Owner / Agile team lead throughout my career (3yrs) . This does involve client facing day to day activity . But I'm wondering where my career is going? Are delivery/POs really consultants? And is being a PO the right path to product manager, if I wanted to go to tech?

Anyone else struggle with friendships during covid or in early 30s? Not sure if it’s 1) the challenge of seeing people w/different COVID risk profiles, or 2) the fact that I recently got an SO and most of my friends are still single, but it’s been a BIG struggle. I’m worried I’ll come out of this year with no one left... everyone is in own little bubble. Any advice?

Unvaccinated people need to stop with the “but if you’re vaccinated why do you care” argument. Unvaccinated people are akin to drunk drivers. Even if I am sober and wearing my seatbelt, a drunk driver could still cause serious harm to me, my family, and those I care about. An unvaccinated person has a higher likelihood of catching and spreading Covid to others because they are cowards who care only about themselves. You are harming other people.
