So Pwc is handling Covid the best, but don’t forget what they are really like... https://www.reddit.com/r/cringe/comments/6eh795/the_second_hand_embarrassment_is_strong_on_this/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
Umm I'm a prostitute?? My now ex believed he deserved sex when he gave me covid and stayed with me to take care of me, so apparently I owed him sex? I refused because for obvious reasons...I wasn't feeling well and wtf am I doing with a boy who throws a tantrum when not getting sex. Lol so all this - I think I might have been a prostitue this whole time.....
I’m a first time dog owner, got a covid puppy, and would appreciate some advice around what to do with my dog, if I have to return to the office 3 days a week. I imagine I’ll be gone for about 9 hours. Do people just pay the $20-30 for a dog walker in Toronto? Isn’t that a lot of money? My dog’s breed doesn’t actually need much walking but he definitely would get bored by himself for so long. I am so torn, between taking a work from home 4/5 days job vs intense hybrid corporate work.
A random thought about covid - before everyone jumps down my throat I’m not saying this is how it should be just curious as to your opinion (see comments)
If anyone thinks Coronavirus situation isn't at least in part politically motivated is lying to themselves. How can you tell? Look what conservative states are doing vs liberal.
Biden administration released a 200 page covid response plan today. This is the type of leadership the American people deserve. https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/National-Strategy-for-the-COVID-19-Response-and-Pandemic-Preparedness.pdf
Has anyone had COVID twice within 60 days? Tested positive in early September. Have a light fever tonight after being around lots of people on Saturday 😒 stupid J&J.
My brother is a mechanic with 10+ years experience but was laid off due to COVID. He's having a hard time even finding jobs to apply for and asked me for advice. I don't even know what someone can do without a degree. He has valuable hard skills but I just don't think there's a demand in NYC right now. Should I advise him to go to school? He'd have to fully finance his degree and I'm just not sure if it's worth it for him to start over at the bottom, or what industry he'd even fit in...
In Georgia. Going out to eat tomorrow. Worth risking Covid so I don’t have to clean the dishes after dinner.
I'm shocked by how many smart people on here emphasize the wrong things in preventing the spread of COVID. It doesn't matter if a place looks clean and feels safe. Clorox wipes and gloves do not help much. The issue is how much time you spend close to other people, especially indoors, whether or not you are wearing masks (and, if so, N95 or surgical) and the air exchange rate. It isn't "safe" to eat indoors at a restaurant because it looks clean and the staff bleach the tables.
To all the folks posting about COVID #’s going down after reopening. These #’s have been cooked and red states are blaming it pneumonia. Below are the increase in avg #’s from the CDC website.
Nanny during covid time took cash payments. How do we claim it on FSA. This is my first year on fsa and I learned i have to have paper trail to prove the payments. Nanny can sign on receipt but won't share ssn. What are my options. Would I be able to claim. I had to let her go when I learned paper requirement.
Those who have had COVID or lost someone to COVID or lost your job to COVID, what was your experience and do you have any insights for the rest of us? I always see people disassociate with this pandemic or even minimize it, so I feel it would be impactful to hear real anecdotes of how this has affected people.
Would you rather... A) Everyone gets instantly infected and 20% at random (regardless of risk) of the world dies, but covid ends immediately B) Covid and social distancing lasts for another 6 years
Since the COVID thing started I’ve seen a lot of posts bout people realizing they are w/ the wrong partner/spouse. 4 us single folks, what qualities do u wish u focused on instead?
Just so all of ya'll remember -730 more lives were lost to Covid yesterday. With all this public gatherings siht will really hit the fan soon.
Um, I feel like my BF of almost 4yrs (1 living together) and I are on the brink of separating. I think COVID is putting it into perspective. We’ve gotten through the worst of the quarantine while supporting each other as best we could (very thankful for him). But his coping skills with stress (during covid) are lacking and as things progressed he’s just been taking it out on me more and more in the moment, then he feels awful for not treating me as well as I deserve (he treated me well before..)
What’s your todo list once COVID-19 is contained/controlled in 2021 and its safe to go out 🥳
Should I feel bad if I stopped caring about covid? I’m vaxed, boosted and I had the OG strain last year. My family gives me crap for not wanting to wear a mask anymore, if the mask drops below my nose they immediately ask me to put it back up. Everyone I know is getting omicron regardless of how boosted and masked they are. Am I a bad person for giving up?
EY can you use American Express on the phone to book personal travel ? Or do you just call the company (enterprise, delta, Marriott) to books yourself and ask for a corporate rate?
What's a good starter electric saw for cutting lumber at home? Would prefer it be portable since I don't have a fixed workspace yet.

This is a long shot ... do any female fish know of avenues to sell sarees? Trying to help my mom - who now has a surplus from my wedding that she was going to give as gifts but since we had a smaller wedding, bunch of relatives couldn’t make it due to COVID. They’re pretty nice silk (pattu) sarees that are brand new, so DM me if anyone is interested or know of anyone interested... can share some photos as well.
Stay in-house defense @ nationwide Corp, or head over to Plaintiff’s firm practicing med-mal? How does med mal compare to run of the mill auto accident cases?
Hi All! Bloomreach has 113 open roles in EMEA and the US. Happy to share the link, either leave a comment or DM me :) Last round of funding: Series F, $175M from Goldman Sachs Total valuation: $2.2B What a time to be alive...
Been with my gf for a number of years now and we’re talking about marriage. She told me today that she wants me to take her last name. Like, it’s whatever but honestly I wasn’t even asking her to take mine, just figured we’d both keep our own last names and now im a little confused/uncomfortable. She thinks it’d be super progressive for me to do, and is really dedicated to what seems like a recently acquired idea. Not sure how to handle this.
Let’s play a game where we build the most stereotypical uniform of someone who is a teacher. Drop clothes, accessories, and memes in the replies.
Welcome to the new love and affection bowl. Where we could all ask for advice on what you can do to make your loved one feel special or you can share what you’ve recently done to give others ideas. No suggestion is silly. Thanks for joining!
How do people think about Roth vs Traditional? How are you all thinking about tax bracket now vs at retirement? For context, I’m 27, single and currently make $107K in DC as a social impact consultant. Will get an MBA so salary will increase but IDK what tax bracket will be at retirement...
A number of years ago, I posted in this very bowl that a company that I founded was looking for the kind of talent we have here, and that worked out great! An opportunity has arisen again, and for people especially in the Dallas areas looking to get out of the consulting rat race and really make an impact at a smaller company, this is a great place to consider. DM me for more info or to discuss. JD here:
You’re welcome, Free World! – Black Women (again...)
