When coronavirus first started to get bad in the US, lots of brands jumped to create PSA messages, stay home messages, donated products and money. I wish more brands right now would do the same about wearing masks. I mean actively say “wear a mask, slow the spread”, not just ones like where amazon have shown people in their ad wearing a mask.
Did anyone have to liquidate some/all of 401(K) due to financial hardship from COVID? If so how do you show that when preparing your 2020 tax return?
Friend moved wedding from May to November. Not feeling comfortable enough with Covid-19 situation to commit to the November date. What would you do? How would you feel?
How do you reply when a great guy on a dating app wants to meet up way too early? Context: early/mid-20’s, on a speciality dating app that’s more catered to long-term/marriage (so not a ‘get in your pants’ situation I think) He sent a message, I sent one, and in his reply to mine he already suggested it...First of all I’m not even doing socially distanced in-person because I’m a strict COVID guideline adherent. But even without COVID, what do you do in this situation?
Starting to feel distant from some friends over their covid choices - anyone else feel this? A close friend is going on vacations to visit other friends but hides this from the elderly parents they live rent free with. I can’t fathom the irresponsibility and it’s made me see them differently, to the point where I question our friendship.
How have kids yours or someone else's embarrassed you or their parents? - we were meeting a friend of mine and their kids at a social gathering, pre covid. We ask my friend's daughter what's her name. She responds and rattles off her name and her mom's name and her dad's name. And goes on to introduce us to her mom's boobs. Rofl. Says these are my mom's boobs.

any other freelancers only hearing indirectly about confirmed COVID-19 cases at agencies they just wrapped up at? (but not hearing directly from the agency?! 🙄)
I’m even more convinced this has been here since Nov/Dec. MI’s ‘first’ case was 2ish weeks ago and Is about to pass California’s cases. Yes, I know we’re testing more but I don’t buy that rate cont https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html
Do any of you do trachs on COVID 19 positive pts? We have several patients that have been on vent for 20 plus days. Are there clinical guidelines around trachs for COVID patients?
Who plays Trump in the COVID movie?
I want COVID to be over bc I miss my grandparents. They live with my parents who I cut contact with 2 years ago. I used to see them at their day care center, but thats been closed. My parents took their phone so I lost my last bit of contact with them. I’m just so sad.
Hung out with a guy a couple times. Due to Covid dates have been at his house. Asked him last night where his head was at bc I truly wanted to know and conversations have been pretty surface level and this morning got this message back. Is it safe to say this won’t go anywhere?
There’s a big streak of anti-blackness and anti-queerness in K-pop fandom, and fans bringing this up often face backlash and ostracization. https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/trump-rally-kpop-tiktok-aoc-turnout-coronavirus-tulsa-ok-a9579976.html
Husband and I have diff views on Covid / socializing, it’s creating a divide in the marriage. He’s resumed his normal life, hoping to catch it & get over it, has labeled me antisocial, I won’t go out
Where is a new build???

People who make 250K+ - do you still feel like you need / want more? Do you have a number in mind that you think is enough? Do you think you will need more when you reach it?
How do you guys actually deal with the stress from our jobs? And please don't give me the "I work out" or I "Go for runs" tropes..that stuff does not help with the day to day stress of our industry. How do you guys deal with it on a daily basis?
Project is asking me to travel the week my wife is due to have a baby or else get an exemption from HR. Is this normal or is my firm just not supportive? KPMG if anyone is looking to join.
When I landed at the Newark airport and proceeded to Boston in 2005 I had just landed in this country with $ 325 in my pocket and was on a student visa. I racked up $ 100,000 in student loans over the next few years. Paid it all off by 2010 and today our net worth is $ 2.2 million projected to close at $ 6 million by the time I retire. Work hard. Stay humble. You can do anything in this country with capitalism and free enterprise.
I'm not a rich man, but is 250k a lot of money? Sure in some parts yes, but not in major cities. If u make that much on ur own, ur doing well. But it's not hard to make that with dual income. (Cont.)
I accidentally said "thanks dad" when a partner complimented me on getting good feedback from the client. This was on a team status call. How do I recover from this?
My husband and I agreed to have two kids before we got married. But after one, I’m not sure I want two anymore. I might be done. I keep hinting but he seems to not want to accept the possibility of a one and done situation. How have people handled something like this? Are two babies worth the strain - financially, emotionally and physically?
+500k homeless ppl in the US, yet ppl care more about refugees from other countries being admitted to the system to receive US govt assistance. Why aren't we this passionate about our own citizens?
Started new project today. Client met me in the lobby, took me to get badge expedited, had laptop and desk ready, had presentations ready, data/reqs all laid out, free snacks, and most importantly
Where would you want to travel in 2020?
People making $200k+ ...I’m sorry but that amount of money just seems unrealistic. Do you ever wonder if you deserve that much money for whatever it is you’re doing?
