People are saying it’s rare to get covid if you’re vaccinated (most recently 1 in 1000 breakthrough cases for MA) but isn’t that directly attributable to far less testing done now? I can understand it’s rare to be at risk for hospitalization, but do we really know how many people are asymptomatic and still spreading?
Has anyone else made the switch from Audit to AAS during COVID? How has it been so far in terms of hours compared to audit and do you enjoy it more than audit?
We broke 3,000 COVID deaths today in an awful benchmark that looks to be topped tomorrow. Don’t let any Trump supporter say they’re pro-life. Wear a mask and get tested. https://t.co/7cNPfiIuy9
So.. my husband and I live across the country from my family, including my young nieces. We haven’t seen them since before COVID and are not seeing anyone inside who is not vaccinated in our life, and this has not been a problem. We made a plan to vacation with my family to see them again this summer. My BIL is refusing to get vaccinated. Everyone else is vaccinated. My parents and sister aren’t happy about it but feel there is nothing they can do.
Has anyone started scheduling mental health days? How did your team react to it? With COVID, people are just taking less PTO and a once a month day off sounds really nice to me right now.
Is Qatar airways a good option for parents coming from India in June? Are there any covid restrictions other than presenting a negative report? Their trip would be from New Delhi to Seattle if it matters
Feeling hopeless today professionally. I’ve tried to trooper on throughout this pandemic but today it all caught up to me. Exhausted, mentally drained and just so negative. Feel like all I do is work since covid. Have tried to set boundaries but it’s impossible when people can reach out on my cell. Get taken advantage of regularly for trying to do what right thing to support my teams. I like my job but I don’t know that I can keep this pace and that adds stress too

Just had my first business trip since COVID. I just want to say FU to everyone who is inconsiderate enough to recline and try to break my kneecaps for 2.5 hours.
Another lie from our car-salesman President. He just said we had the “largest testing capacity in the world”, and that “nobody’s done a better job at testing...” but we can’t test 100 Senators to keep the government running. https://www.axios.com/senate-doctor-mitch-mcconnell-coronavirus-testing-e99282f6-90f5-4e11-8b45-02548f38ab12.html
HELP! Roommate is being insistent on not allowing either of us to go out due to covid (except for groceries). We live in Chicago, and phase 4 is starting in a few wks meaning most places will re-open with limited capacity. I’m not trying to go crazy here and hit up every club/restaurant/public place. But I’d like to enjoy a meal out or a small gathering at a friend’s place, things like that (w/ all proper precautions in place) but roommate is not cool with it -how to approach?

Tone-deaf response from the left wing Democratic mayor of D.C., who was speaking near the place a 17 year old had just been shot to death. "Mayor Muriel Bowser, speaking to reporters near the scene of the shooting, noted that public drinking and marijuana use outside were prohibited, as were gatherings of more than 50 people as a precaution against spreading the coronavirus. “It’s very important that as a community we have a zero-tolerance for this activity,” https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/dc-shooting-leaves-dead-20-injured-72269085

You know what grinds my gears? When SM or above still don't know how to send a Skype call properly and make you type everything in manually... for a daily call, over the next year 😑😑
Open forum to share today’s successes, failures, chaos & support. See below: I’ll say it. I am sick of ppl ruining my day. i wish everyone was a bit more understanding when it comes to unforeseen problems & road blocks. ESPECIALLY when it comes delivery. I know we are all on edge rn- how could we not be? but I’ve had it with how rude and inhumane people are being to each other right now. I’m just trying to help. Why can’t we all be more flexible? (like their expected delivery date lmao)

Hey ladies- bit of a touchy personal subject. I had my male counterpart recently use a counteroffer that was extended to me to try to push his own raise. Should I feel offended that he's piggybacking off my offer? (We do not have same work balance for context- he has 4 direct reports to my my 1 direct report and the same workload).
