Just a rant. The subway is my primary mode of transportation. Without fail, there is always at least 1 person - usually 2 - unmasked. I looked at an unmasked woman when the reminder announcement was made and she shouted, “whatchu lookin at?”. I said, “ignorance and selfishness apparently”. Look, I don’t want to wear a mask either, but it’s required and we are all in this together. I wish the MTA would enforce this.
Are more ppl on dating apps because of covid right now? I'd like to give it another try because well... cant meet ppl the normal way.
1) How much student loan debt did you start with?2) How much do you pay a month? 3) In what timeframe do you plan to pay it off within?
Just witnessed a mess on flight with flight attendants escalating a 2.5 year old not wearing a mask. We need to drop mask mandates for kids. It’s completely impractical and causing chaos for travelers and flight attendants. Europe is age 5 and that seems way more reasonable.
How are folks feeling about the recent violence towards the Asian community? For the Asians in this group, how are you feeling about your own sense of safety around the city?
Some states are cancelling testing for the year. Do you think COVID could be the end of standaridized testing?
Was Laid Off without a PIP but with strong positive reviews and delivering quality work. Ashamed of how EY Leadership is throwing dirt on it's laid off employees by emphasising layoffs were "Performance Based". Mean, Stealthy and Dishonest, COVID has exposed the dirty, selfish leadership mindset. To my colleagues laid off, its the failure of the business not your caliber as professionals. Don't let this mess with your self respect and self esteem. More power to all of us.
Haven’t decided whether I want to get the vaccine yet (skip over this if you’re going to comment with judgment), but every work call/happy hour lately involves people discussing their vaccine status. Any thoughts on responses for when I’m asked about mine?
Those of you in NYC… currently with the outbreak, and no foreseeable end, what makes you stay?
If the US goes on lockdown and closes literally everything for 2 weeks, would that not eliminate coronavirus since 2 weeks is the incubation period for it? It makes sense in my mind but can someone explain why/how this may not be the case?
Deloitte started my green card process in 2019. Went through prevailing wage last September, then they paused the process I guess due to covid and political reasons. I checked last month and it’s still on a pause. My 6 year H1B is up in 2023. Any suggestions on what to do next or anyone know how long the pause usually last? I am from China mainland. Thank you
#OffTopic I used to be a Chill and Calm Guy when I joined org. before COVID but now I am turned into Aggressive, Angry, Irritable guy ( Not Intensionally ) No one wants to talk to me nicely even my family... any suggestions any help ?

Life hack ! If you put hand sanitizer in your eyes you can rub your eyes without washing your hands. I still haven’t gotten corona virus but I also still can’t see. Seriously guys is this normal
Who’s purchased an under desk treadmill since covid or I guess anytime? Thoughts? Recommendations? I’ve been doing research, but I find some sites get paid to write about them so I’d rather have personal experiences. TIA
What sort of principles are you agreeing with nannies in the covid era? Obviously if any of us needs to quarantine due to possible exposure we’d have her stay home with pay. What about when one of our kids has a sniffle or a cough that seems like a cold? In normal times she’d continue watching them but is this unreasonable to ask? Any other advice before I have the conversation to get her thoughts? One of my kids will be in small group, masked hybrid elementary and the other will be home.
Junior attorney at a big law. Ever since COVID and WFH, the firm requires us to release our hours every day. If we don’t, we get called out or worse, get treated as if we didn’t work any hours. It’s an easy task and I never fell behind releasing my time, but psychologically, I feel so restless because we get staffed on how much we billed the day prior and this system fails to take into account the extreme ebb and flow of transactional group. Will daily release become the norm in big law?
When COVID hit, people who side-eyed or laughed at me for being a doomsday prepper weren’t side-eyeing or laughing anymore.
Honest discussion: If you’re not vaccinated against COVID-19 by now, why not? What would make you change your mind, if anything?

Which step are you standing on currently 😬
HELP! I just got a BCG consultant offer. PwC paid for my MBA. I still need to work here for 3 more years before not owing any of it back (currently would have to pay 100% of it if I left). Is the move worth it? Or should I maybe push to move to Strategy& (internal move) instead of BCG?

Boomers on this app: There's no difference between boomers and millennials work experience, you guys complain too much, we worked just as hard as you do. Actual partners in my office on a team call, unprompted: Man, we worked so much less in our day! And it was so much more relaxed. I miss the coffee carts. And Friday bar carts! And all our lunches were liquid lunches. Those were the days!
