Hyd folks - Heard first hand horror stories of friends struggling to get care at hospitals for family members with COVID. Even with all the money and influence. Stay safe!
Made plans for my close non-lawyer friend to visit. Found out she is unvaccinated (hasn’t gotten around to it - she says). The handful I hangout with are vaccinated. Majority of my office is vaccinated - or required to wear mask entire day. Struggling to find the words to cancel plans until she’s vaccinated. She is sensitive. Any advice?
Closing in on 25 and realizing I've never been in a serious relationship in my life. Finding it especially harder to deal with this year as everyone seems to be getting engaged all over social media. And this prolonged pandemic makes me even more nervous to pursue anything. How have you been coping with dating in the time of COVID?
If I’m honest, I don’t want COVID to end because I really enjoy working from home. I get a lot more done, and I can see my family and pets and neighbors… It isn’t easier. It’s just better. My friend is quitting at FCB because they are forcing them to come back 3 days a week. That gives me anxiety that I’ll be forced back soon at Publicis. Anyone else feel this way?
Putting in my notice tomorrow. Could not have come at a worst time. I’m the last associate left in the group (4 partners now). The other associate just put in notice literally 3 days ago. I did not see that coming, but nonetheless, an offer of my own came in and I can’t say no. I know a lot of firms have experienced attrition over COVID, but these circumstances make me feel horrible. I’m anticipating a horrible response. Any insight on how to handle is appreciated.
Anyone else just feel too overstimulated by everything going on? Protests, riots, looting, coronavirus, Trump mouthing off, personal problems, job pressures? Cont'd
There's a lot of pressure from parents for us to return to in person instructionin my district despite rising COVID numbers. Is anyone else experiencing this?
I have been in the industry for ~ 20 years, career slowed down when I went part time to raise a family and care for aging parents and when I moved to Milwaukee, I took a demotion. I was part of Covid layoffs and have been applying for an Account Director role. When I looked on LinkedIn, the company has a lot of young people at VP level. How do I negotiate for that after the fact? What does VP mean at your company?
What’s your most controversial opinion? I’ll go first: I negatively judge teen parents for choosing to have a baby

Are you vaccinated? Why or why not?
Would love to hear people’s view on the Pfizer / moderna covid-19 vaccine. will you be getting the vaccine when it becomes available to you?
So, apparently my school has the lowest teacher attendance this year. As teachers- what would be a good incentive to get perfect attendance and not use your PTO?
Met this guy 4 weeks ago. He lives 4 hours away and has already been down to see me twice and stayed at the hotel for 2 nights each time. Pays for every date even though I offer to pay. He is awesome and I really like him! However, he was traveling for work last week so our communication went from checking in everyday to one 15 min call middle of the week. He joined this job during COVID so first time meeting his team.. he said they were out past 1am every night. Ummm? (Contd)
So i was seeing the post around Deloitte USI work life balance, culture, hikes and bonuses were comparing to others. Let me tell you, this is the same company which gave me 1 lakh joining bonus, 20k award,10k special compensation, 5k spot award,15k furniture expense, 25k smartphone, 1.5k internet, awesome laptop to work, 15 days covid leaves. And today 22% hike 160% bonus. I mean i just joined 6 months back. What else you want from any company? I have great WLB since joined. #greatCompany #Love❤
Many teachers have said that they are burned-out. Can you please be specific about what is burning you out? For me, it’s students who are constantly unwilling to do any work.

How is it that MBB don’t need H1B amendment for traveling projects but B4 do? Aren’t we doing similar jobs as far as visas are concerned? Also, why is B4 visa rejection rate so much higher than MBB?
Accidentally asked the client to massage me. I meant for her to message me, but hey, I could use a massage, too.
My OOO email message starting Monday: I will be out of the office from 9/21/15 until 9/28/15. If this is an emergency, tough luck.
