If I’m honest, I don’t want COVID to end because I really enjoy working from home. I get a lot more done, and I can see my family and pets and neighbors… It isn’t easier. It’s just better. My friend is quitting at FCB because they are forcing them to come back 3 days a week. That gives me anxiety that I’ll be forced back soon at Publicis. Anyone else feel this way?
Morning rant - I kinda hate this hypocrisy where we are doing everything in the world at this stage - visiting malls, watching movies, going to restaurants/pubs, travelling the world BUT just when it comes to going to offices, covid is a risk we will not go.
What do you all think the odds are of LA shutting production down again given the latest uptick in Covid?
For those of you who have 2020 babies and kept them at home bc of covid: since the vaccine might not guard against transmission and our LOs will not be vaccinated for at least another year, when do you think you’ll feel comfortable putting them in daycare, starting play dates etc?
F*** 2020. The one day hubs and I got frisky in the last month was this morning, and this afternoon he tested positive for COVID. I’m negative, as is the baby (for now).
Air Canada is offering refund options for a flight that got cancelled last year due to COVID-19. What’s the best option? Get a full refund, add it to aeroplan points, or transfer to AC travel voucher?
Even when patients have insurance, the money has to come from somewhere.

Sitting at home winding yarn and listening to a training after waking up late. My best friend is 5 hours into a 12 hour retail shift she got after getting laid off thanks to COVID. How i get paid as much as I do is an absolute mystery lol. (Joke, obv i understand. It just seems silly I'm making multiples of what she is for literally a fraction of the work)
Well, our district found a COVID loophole and are exploiting it. They get to determine whether or not we are considered a “close contact” or not with a positive student. And because they told us to “never be within 6’ of a student for 15 minutes or longer” (in a tiny classroom with 28 JH students), they’re justifying that if we test positive “despite their efforts”, it’s on us, not the district, so they won’t cover any medical costs or give us the Covid days off. Talk about feeling expendable.
JUST IN: Deloitte will require vaccines to enter company facilities beginning October 11.
Some companies like Morgan Stanley are starting to require that their employees be vaccinated to come back to the office. Where do you stand on this - should your employer be able to require vaccination? Personally, I think they should be able to, but curious to hear your thoughts. ￼ Is your company requiring vaccination?
Just got offered to join potential project that would relocate me to LA for 3-4 months for onsite work. Their office is downtown, I’m single, 29 have the flexibility in lifestyle for this kind of move. Is it worth coming to LA rn? There are obvious Covid risks, but anything else I should consider when looking at this move? Thank you

Anyone ever consider moving to another city for their partner? I’m having such a hard time finding a new job during covid, I’m rethinking it all! Not really but that’s how frustrating it is.

Hi Guys!! Is the appraisal cycle changed to 11 months at Nagarro? Earlier it used to be exactly after 1 year from DOJ i guess. When can I expect my appraisal if my DOJ was in Feb 2021 and what is the average hike% one can expect?
I started working at law firms when I was in college and throughout law school. My level of experience is more on the lines of a 3rd or 4th year yet I'm really a first year. Some attroneys recognize this and give me really advanced work yet others treat me as a really junior and give me really junior work. What's the best way to handle this? Sometimes being asked to format a document just seems to be really a waste of my time.

Adopted a cat recently and he came with tapeworm and fleas. Brought him to the vet and got him treated. He seemed to be in the clear, but saw white-sesame-seed-like particles where he sleeps.

Crowdsourcing perspective. Had an advisor help me negotiate my new job offer behind the scenes. They were not compensated at all but we have a good working relationship (we have helped each other over decade+). What would be a nice gift to acknowledge/appreciate the help? It was a half dozen conversations over two months so not immaterial commitment of time.
