My sister is unvaccinated with no plans to get the vaccine. She is getting married this year, meaning lots of events. I am pregnant, high risk (CH mama from yesterday’s post), and can’t risk getting Covid again. What would you do? Do I ask her to get vaccinated for my/her future niece’s sake? If she doesn’t, should I sit out the wedding events?
Has anyone ever shit their pants at work or on the way to/from work? I’ll go first... Was on my way to my buddy’s place for post-work dranks when I got the sudden urge to poo. Stuck in rush hour traffic I started sweating. Fast food places were not allowing people inside (only drive thru during peak covid) so I drove around looking for bush to shit in. Found a house with no lights on and nice bushes out front and pulled over. (Cont’d in comments)
How should I spend my two weeks block leave during this COVID? Does anyone travel overseas?
Healthy 43-year-old man gets COVID-19 and spends six weeks on a ventilator. Scary stuff.
How to set boundaries at work with the Covid campaigns? We’re already working long hours during the week. I really can’t take this on the weekends too. I know you’re supposed to ‘save your job’ but...

Alixpartners fishes - have you started traveling again? Do you foresee your travel requirements reducing post covid
Under normal circumstances (I.e. pre Covid), is it much harder to get sponsored for actually academic courses like MA or MPhil as opposed to MBAs? People might say those are not as relevant as MBAs to business, but MBAs don’t strike me as anything particularly vocational either.
Where are all my ESG and CSR folks? Apparently the economic slowdown from covid 19 has caused emissions to slow down incredibly.
I created the biggest rift I’ve ever had in my family when I left mid-covid for my first industry job, moved to a new city, started dating what I thought was the love of my life… only to come full circle. I’m forever the black sheep, got fired from a shit job, this city sucks, and he’s a half ass som’bitch that wasn’t worth it. Humble pie anyone? I’ve got a dump truck load over here… for fucks sake
Has anyone taken an unpaid leave on H1b without leaving the country? I am just really burnt out with work, kids and taking care of my wife who is recovering from a severe case of covid. Would love to not work for a month. She is on H4.
Supposed to be moving to France from the US in a few weeks for a new job, it’s been six months in the works of getting the visa situation handled. With this coronavirus now, I’m afraid (cont)
Folks - thinking of having my parents apply for extension of stay in US under b1/b2 visa due to the COVID madness in India. Any long term implications or other considerations I should have in mind ?
The truth about how covid started
I find that single male friends of friends are generally very eager when we first met or were introduced (through events, common friends’ parties). I got invited to their hangout bunch / house parties (pre-covid), but the moment we established i have no romantic interest and only friendships, they disappeared and we become barely acquaintance. I genuinely want to keep them in my life as friends. Why is this the case?
So basically our industry decided to massacre all the vendors, big and small, through indifference?

It’s been a hot minute. Thai Basil Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Hoisin Sauce (Keto). My pre-covid work clothes are now loose on me. I’ll have to buy a new work wardrobe wherever that may be. I quit my job and am back in school. Goodbye tax, goodbye busy seasons, goodbye billable hours.. 😁
"Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who opposes vaccine and mask mandates, tests positive for COVID-19" No thoughts. No prayers. https://news.yahoo.com/texas-gov-greg-abbott-who-opposes-vaccine-and-mask-mandates-tests-positive-for-covid-19-211349823.html
Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat I’ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasn’t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and it’s hard to say if it’s falsified or if he’s just incompetent - and I don’t want to go to my other partners if I’m not 100% sure. But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.

Has anyone had any experience interviewing through hirevue? What was it like ? I understand it’s just the first step of the interview process .
Hi all. I need some urgent advice. My F1 visa is ending on May 18, my EAD is expiring on June 30th and I am currently stuck in India. I have two questions. 1. Can I enroll into a CPT program while I am in India? 2. Can I get a F1 visa restamp/extension based on the CPT? I have heard F1 visa requests for CPT are usually denied. Thank you!
Why do many tax lawyers end up going to Big 4 firms and act like a know-it-all - when they are actually law firm rejects??
Fellow fishes, has anyone recently gone to India for H1B stamping and used Dropbox service. If you could please shed some light on the processing times and overall process that would be very helpful!
