My roommate wants to sublet his room for a month while he is away visiting parents. I’m not fully comfortable with it given covid and living with a stranger, but he saids I’m vaxxed so it shouldn’t be a problem. What do you all think is the right thing to do?

That’s BS, there’s a pandemic going on. He eats it.


It would be no way for me. Someone living with you that you don’t even know, during a pandemic? Heck no.


What does your landlord say?

Landlord wouldnt care as long as rent is paid

My roommate has spent the last 6months at home and wants to get out of a 2 year lease I pressured into…

What does the law say?

Would you feel more comfortable if the person who takes the sublet is also fully vaxxed?

I’d be more comfortable if my roommate didn’t push me to sign a longer lease and then dip 1/3 of the way through

I think it’s fine to let your roommate sublet. Did he already find someone? Do you know this person?

Wouldn’t take a rando but it’s fine if you know who it is or meet them first

No problem. If you’re both vaccinated, you’re fine. The CDC found 9000 Covid cases among 95M vaccinated people. A bit of an undercount but directionally correct.

Just say no! You made an agreement to be roommates with your roommate, not some stranger. Stand your ground.

I understand that weddings are hard to plan and it’s hard to plan anything right now with COVID, but you telling me you think I’m going to go to your wedding just because it’s family and you think my 1 year old daughter will be there is freaking insane.....gosh I wish I could just tell her that we won’t be going but it’s my husband’s family and I’m done intervening.

Hi Fishes,

My colleague's younger sister is looking for a job as a fresher. She has recently graduated (B.com) and is pursuing US CMA. She's also done a couple of internships and is highly proactive and motivated. The family has been struggling to meet the ends specially due to Covid Pandemic.

Tried applying via Naukri and LinkedIn but there's hardly any response.
Can someone please refer her in their organization for a relevant role for a B.Com graduate. DM me for more details.

Good morning. I hope everyone that reads this post is doing well. I sincerely hope you all can assist me. I am seeking a job because my previous position downsized from Covid. I have a vast amount of experience in legal, criminal justice, mental health, higher education, and a few other fields. I am a PhD candidate and should be finished by December. If you have any referrals, please DM me. My LinkedIn account is www.linkedIn/In/worthingtonchristopher. I have my resume posted. Thank you.


My parents are the best and love them to death. But they’re super emotional and always make me feel like I don’t see them enough. Before covid I used to see them almost every other month. During covid I stayed home for a two month stretch and am now back for a few weeks six months later. Leaves me antsy as I think about getting married and starting my own family and knowing it will be harder to visit. The guilt, maybe somewhat self imposed, is draining

I told myself I would buy VTI if it went below $190 but now that I’m seeing it in the low $180s, I think it can go below $180 and hover around the same price it was right before the covid crash. The way the market shot up after that covid crash, that was not natural and shouldn’t have happened. I think this is just a correction if I’m being honest. Thoughts?


Ladies, I’m heading to the courthouse in two weeks to get married. Immediately afterward we’re heading to a mini-moon 2 hours away.
