Posting my question again:::
How Barclays India helped it's employees during COVID?? Did they fire anyone???
Apartment searching in fall. Are people generally looking for new places or waiting it out while Covid still lingers?
How is the city doing mask-wise? Just got back from FL where Covid doesn’t seem to exist anymore and I’m taken aback by all the masking around the city still (particularly outdoors).
Lost a job to COVID and considering taking a job at 40% less salary. Still had to fight for it! Feeling grateful for the offer but ouch. Will things ever bounce back?
Do you think using “him/her” for “he/she” (ex: “her is playing” “him not here yet”) is something that kids usually grow out of? Or does it need direct intervention? I have 2 students who exhibit this error, who otherwise should be dismissed. Normally I’d just keep them on and work on it alongside other goals, but they don’t have any other goals, and with COVID, and my upcoming maternity leave in March, a more compact caseload would be advantageous.
Our lease renewal is coming up in a couple of months and our building is raising rent by 30%. Any tips for negotiating it down? For context, we didn’t have a Covid deal/discount, we’ve lived in the unit for almost three years, and we love it here overall…but an extra $800/mo is not it
WFH has made my transition back to working so much easier. Daycare drop off is less stressful bc not rushing to a train, and I can do anything I couldn’t with my little one once he’s dropped off (coffee, eat, little make up), and then there’s pumping!! So I’m anxious about going back in for non covid reasons. What are some tips and tricks you mamas have for getting out the door! And pumping at the office?!
seems it’s a trek to get tested for covid-19. no luck getting a note from the provider for testing. what to do?
Show of hands. Who feels like they’ve banked good visibility pre-Covid and will continue to coast as long as possible before picking up the pace again 👋
And by coast I mean work normal human hours
With covid increasing and hardly any people wearing masks in office I'm quite apprehensive about WFO 😐
Looking for opinions on when people think things will normalize in boston. My lease ends in june and i moved there 3 weeks before covid lock down cont
Any news on vedder price? I’ve heard they didn’t fire anyone during COVID but have also heard it’s a sweatshop. Any insight to their litigation team would be helpful, thanks!
AlixPartners fishes need some guidance ! I went through the recruiting process for the digital practice earlier this year. Over 9 interviews/ discussion/ tests etc. the feedback was good but was not offered a job due to COVID uncertainties. Recruiter said the firm is interested in hiring me when things pickup.I recently sent a note to the recruiter asking if she has any updates, she said no new updates at this time. Last Friday I saw 3 new opening for the same role, what should I make of this !
Has the covid19 made you think more about your bucket list and all that you want to accomplish and experience, the daily job grind notwithstanding? I feel like while I am at a standstill, my mind is racing with all that I need to decide and do.
Anyone else seeing all negative results for COVID testing at their hospital? We have had several patients who are clinically positive with no other explanation and they test negative over and over. Could it be faulty tests or technique? Or that some people don’t test positive until a few weeks after their symptoms? All I know is I don’t trust these tests one bit. Scary thing is, if the patients test negative they are not isolating them and some nurses are only wearing surgical mask in room.
I just got an offer to work as SS in USDC. Any new updates on if we can work from home post covid? Would really love to save my 90 minutes one way commute time.

A colleague of mine is struggling with a student who screams, cries, and throws fits when it is time to complete tasks. They have created behavior charts with something fun to work towards: it doesn’t work. They have called the parent and they just cry and say that they experience the same issue and they don’t know how to fix it. They have reached out to guidance and all they can say is “sorry, the child isn’t hurting themselves or others. It’s frustrating and I can’t help you.”

Thoughts on chest hair
I was ghosted by someone in here. One of you from DC slid into my DMs and we talked for a week. I would’ve responded to your last message but you didn’t give me enough time to before you left the chat. 😢
The best feeling in the world is being able to finally relax for the first time in two years without feeling any guilt
Is it possible to live a happy life with a job you hate? I dislike both my role and my coworkers but it’s relatively chill and pays well enough for me to afford the life I want personally. Can’t help but think spending so many hours weekly doing a boring job with bad people will wear me down eventually.
Unpopular opinion (?): the comeback of Y2K fashion makes me cringe HARD and has me wondering what is wrong with us humans.
I want a partner who puts effort in the relationship, communicates, and buys me flowers or nice things I won’t buy myself. I’m tired of being the only one who does that one-sidedly
Kinda stings when your B School or Undergrad classmates won’t take an innocent call to just catch-up over drinks or dinner while I’m in town for travel. Guess they think I’m on all the time. 🥺😵
Drove to chick-fil-a on a Sunday 🤡🤦♂️
I have no idea what is wrong with me or how to fix it. In my lifetime, I have no real friends even though I meet so many people. I reach out and they dismiss me. I ask how they're doing and they don't reciprocate or ignore me. I really try to be a kind, fun friend.
My therapist thinks there's nothing wrong with me, but I just meet the wrong people.
But this sounds wrong, they all have close friends, nobody actively hates me, though clearly I am doing something wrong. I can't live like this.
Suppose you never have to work again due to a large amount of assets/cash suddenly being in your possession. How do you say FU to your boss on the way out. Initially I thought it was classy to simply say “Due to a change in my financial circumstances, I am no longer in need of employment” But that seems eh, and not petty enough for my liking.
I went to the CVS near my building today for a Red Bull and the cashier told me “hello [my name]”. I was a bit creeped out because I didn’t tell her my name or gave them my card or anything. I usually go there to get a prescription refill but I never interact with anyone. I’m creeped out, should I not be?
Do any of you work for your family business ? How do you cope with the additional workload and speaking to your parents when they are wrong?
I’m not feeling it today 😔
So starting the get feelings for my prostate masseuse but I am married. It would pretty much be impossible to find another masseuse as good as her. Really conflicted…
