Yup, and what’s trash is some of my clients are so scared and unemployed they’re taking it. I use it too though, to push arbs. Weird world

Yes. My clients though NYers are too savvy to take it.

Need advice: baby is 8 months. We started her in daycare at 6 months. Liked the daycare but concerned because not all caregivers were vaccinated. Liked daycare overall because we wanted to not manage anyone, socialization, etc. We got more nervous with Covid as daycare did not mandate after FDA approval and other mandates came out. We found a nanny share and informed the daycare we are pulling her out - the director calls me and says the remaining teachers have received the 1st dose. Cont.

Really need advice/opinions. My close friends are having their wedding the day of my son’s 1st birthday (poor planning & lack of consideration on their part). I could move the bday to the following wk but I’m 1) hurt they didn’t ask if we could make it if we’re in the wedding party 2) already canceled our gender reveal, babymoon & baby shower last yr due to covid & this is the ONE thing i was looking forward to now that we’re vaccinated. Moms what would you do? How would you feel about this?

I've been working for going on 2.5 years now in adtech on a very well regarded team at a Top 3 media holding group, and have only had 1 raise due to company promotion freezes during covid. While I started this job right out of college, I'm finding myself continually frustrated at my pay....$60k in NYC. Can someone tell me if I'm being crazy or if I should really be hitting the job market, like, yesterday?

I’ve been dating my partner for about 10 months now. We met during Covid. The sex was great in the beginning and we almost did it everyday. What worries me is that we do it barely once a week now. Work has taken a toll on both of us and we are always exhausted and lazy. We meet 2-3 times a week and are tired by the time we get to it. As a result, I get tempted when I see other girls. How do I take care of this problem?

WHY are we so nasty and vindictive to each other? Got an entire 30 day block from Blacks In Tech for pointing out that a conversation about the COVID-19 vax did not begin from a respectful place. IMO starting a respectful convo on that topic means inviting people to share their “reasons”. This person started the discussion from the angle that Black people have “misconceptions” - which plays into the narrative that we are too dumb to evaluate the info and land on a decision which is right for us.

Happy 2021 everyone!! If you stayed in town over the holidays and assuming no work, what did y'all end up doing in the last week? As someone who doesn't live with family, I haven't been able to find much to do here during covid times (which took out the causal City / nightlife / dinner outings with friends). I have been to several lakes and trails over my 3 years here but found them underwhelming. Arbor Hills Preserve is probably the only decent place. Suggestions? TIA

Had an interview at a firm where they have an unlimited vacation policy that’s just “speak with your deal teams in advance to get time off”. Anyone actually know in practice how many days is a normal amount to request in a @year? My current firm gives you 20 days and very much pushes you to take those days, so just wondering if anyone at a firm with a similar policy takes around 20 without issue.
