Who takes smoke breaks...

As someone constantly smoked by neighbors especially in quarantine - my opinion of smokers smoking on video chat would be incredibly poor. Keep your work space even if WFH as a neutral zone. As someone who has lost loved ones to cancer and watched others unable or unwilling to stop smoking - it is an indication of poor self control and decision making. They know it increases chances of cancer, that secondhand smoke can give cancer to others (some studies even indicate it's higher likelihood than smoker getting cancer), and it's expensive. Yet they keep doing it. They claim it's their right. Sure but I absolutely hate that their smoke spreads so far beyond their immediate space and person. Others even let smoking take over their lives.

Just hit the juul when you step aside for water/bathroom

Did you have to decide on remote vs hybrid school for your kid/s? We are supposed to make a final choice this week for the remainder of the school year and I'm struggling with it, even though I think I know what we should choose. I'm just so exhausted from operating in survival mode and worried we'll get it wrong because things are changing so fast we can't predict what spring could bring.
