I’ve never got a trainee gift from supervisors and yes I think it would be a bit weird.

Agree. Just buy them a pint.

Never got one as trainee. Never gave one whilst supervising a trainee.

I think it really depends on your relationship, if you are close, I don’t see any harm and I’m sure it’d be really appreciated, but I think it’s usually the other way around - the trainee gets something small (card/nice box of chocolates) for their supervisor as a thank you.

What's your favorite BBQ / rib place in Boston? We've had amazing takeout from The Smoke Shop in the Seaport during Covid lockdown. The ribs are pure heaven and the chicken wings are also amazing. The only complaint is that they no longer have collard greens and they charge you for extra bbq sauce, which seems pretty chintzy when you're dropping $50-70 on food.

Am I overreacting in this scenario? My aunt passed away this week. The entire extended family is vaccinated and coming together this weekend for her memorial gathering & funeral. My older sister flew in from NYC and didn’t tell anyone that she had a fever the past few days. She has not been tested for Covid, and exposed my father who picked her up from the airport. He is making her get a Covid test today. I don’t think she should attend any event & potentially expose older family members. AITA?

I have had covid before (a year ago), female, and had my first moderna shot. I’m a little worried about taking my second shot cuz I’ve heard ppl who had high fever for a week straight.

WHY are we so nasty and vindictive to each other? Got an entire 30 day block from Blacks In Tech for pointing out that a conversation about the COVID-19 vax did not begin from a respectful place. IMO starting a respectful convo on that topic means inviting people to share their “reasons”. This person started the discussion from the angle that Black people have “misconceptions” - which plays into the narrative that we are too dumb to evaluate the info and land on a decision which is right for us.
