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 was never a perfume person, but recently decided I want to be. We don’t go anywhere notable with COVID around, so I just wear it around the house in my lounge outfits (aka uniform of the past two years). Still perks me up though! I’m curious 🐠, what are your go-to scents?? I’m obsessed with Prada Candy Night.
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. Since I’m high risk for having a bad adverse reaction to the second dose. Debating if I should still get it? I’m just really not looking forward to that 104 degree fever for a week straight.
I have about $150K sitting in Barclay's savings for a few years now. Plan has been to use the money as down payment for a house.

Started at a new company two months ago… everyone is nice but I feel like no one is actually friends with each other.

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.
Anyone else have kids in school who are constantly being exposed. I have two and both have had multiple close contacts within the last two weeks. I’m currently on covid leave to monitor the youngest since his classroom shutdown. But my other got exposure notice again today. What are we going to do?

Am I screwed? I’m on track for about 1300 billables for 2021, target is 2000.

I have only received positive reviews and (cont’d in comments)
