I’ve joined the league of Covid layoffs. I was in an Art Director role with an experiential agency. I’d love to move into a more strategy focused role next — any advice on how best to pivot?
Umm I'm a prostitute?? My now ex believed he deserved sex when he gave me covid and stayed with me to take care of me, so apparently I owed him sex? I refused because for obvious reasons...I wasn't feeling well and wtf am I doing with a boy who throws a tantrum when not getting sex. Lol so all this - I think I might have been a prostitue this whole time.....
Getting a puppy in this COVID-19 situation given the assumption this WFH situation will continue for weeks. Yay or nay?
I’m a first time dog owner, got a covid puppy, and would appreciate some advice around what to do with my dog, if I have to return to the office 3 days a week. I imagine I’ll be gone for about 9 hours. Do people just pay the $20-30 for a dog walker in Toronto? Isn’t that a lot of money? My dog’s breed doesn’t actually need much walking but he definitely would get bored by himself for so long. I am so torn, between taking a work from home 4/5 days job vs intense hybrid corporate work.
If anyone thinks Coronavirus situation isn't at least in part politically motivated is lying to themselves. How can you tell? Look what conservative states are doing vs liberal.
Lol to the person who posted the picture comparing hairdressers resuming work to people illegally crossing the border. Comparing COVID to the Flu is ludicrous and apples to oranges but comparing breaking a law to violating a mandate (although in their example Texas is open) isn’t apples and oranges when it fits their narrative apparently 🤨
What do all these protestors do for a living? I don’t know anyone in my friend group who can afford to take off time from work or risk getting COVID-19
Itching to travel. When will this be over :( Has covid been a positive or negative event in your life?
Biden administration released a 200 page covid response plan today. This is the type of leadership the American people deserve. https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/National-Strategy-for-the-COVID-19-Response-and-Pandemic-Preparedness.pdf
Has anyone had COVID twice within 60 days? Tested positive in early September. Have a light fever tonight after being around lots of people on Saturday 😒 stupid J&J.
Worst case, but still possible: Covid continues to spread for years despite any vaccine (the rest of our lives). Unemployment skyrockets and the US becomes a developing country with squalid conditions for the low-income. We lose social order and all need to hire private security guards to protect our homes from theft and violence. This also means no more vacations or fun events because the risk of something bad happening is too high. What are your thoughts on this?
People need to start flying, booking hotels, visiting retail stores. We need our sanity and economy back. We need to understand that if we do not allow our cash to circulate we are all going to be in trouble pretty soon. Enough of just buying on Amazon, liquor stores, weed man etc. Go back to your normal life and spending pattern and wear your masks and sanitize. I understand that most people live under fear but what is the point of being alive if you are not living. COVID-19 is here for a whols
So, I‘ve been chatting with a girl for a few months since this whole COVID thing started. She’s really cool and we get along great. Last week we met up in person and ended up “having fun”. The only thing is she basically has no boobs. Just nipples on her chest. I couldn’t tell before because we had only vchatted, but now I don’t know if I can get over it. I like big boobs. Should I tough it out and try and get over it, or just move on to another girl?
hot take- as soon as the election in Nov happens, covid won't matter nearly as much to news outlets
I have a friend's wedding coming up in couple of weeks. Not sure if I should go. - Had COVID in the past (live with essential workers. It was nightmare). - The wedding is outdoors and the reception is indoors - Masks are optional - If I go, I will wear mask and maintain social distance Also, advice on etiquette if I go.. continued..
Stephen Miller’s wife tested positive for covid, she is also Mike pence’s press secretary, won’t be long before we hear that the vp and trump have it
To all the folks posting about COVID #’s going down after reopening. These #’s have been cooked and red states are blaming it pneumonia. Below are the increase in avg #’s from the CDC website.
A friend who travels for his job in industry started having symptoms 10 days ago while in Vancouver for work, flew home to California then spent last week in Orlando for work and came home, got tested and has COVID. 🤦 Be safe out there. If you're asked to travel make you exercise the "if you don't feel comfortable" part of the request if you need to.
Online dating right now is kind of a no-go with the whole COVID thing, so would it be bad to sleep with my neighbor? Is it like sleeping with a co-worker (sh**ing where one eats)?
My mom’s sister died due to Covid and my mom has been depressed since then. She started to see a grief counselor but now the counselor also has Covid. The doctors she had been seeing have Covid too. My mom had to get tested and it was negative but she is so depressed that she has given up on life. It’s scary to receive a call when my dad says she has fainted and is talking like she is on her death bed. Her mental health is exacerbating her physical health issues and has resulted in significant..
Anyone being asked to serve full notice period (3months) even you’re going to another firm (competitor) doing same job as business manager?
My fiancée almost lost her life to a medical emergency. The doctor needed me to stay home 2 weeks to supervise her post-operative care once the hospital discharged her. We had nobody near that could help so I got permission to attend class remotely for 2 weeks from the dean and all professors. One professor removed me from a graded argument the week after I’d return. When I asked about this error, he had said “I had planned on your failure to appear” and that he preplanned giving me a 0 grade.
Reached the breaking point. Working 13+ hours a day. No breaks. 7 months pregnant. Cry 24/7 bc so miserable. Wondering how much stress I’m putting on the baby. If I did nothing, would anyone notice?
Anyone have advice on how to switch from account management to communication/content strategy?
This is the most dangerous and irresponsible thing Trump has done yet. Our only hope is that Bolton doesn't last as long as Flynn. https://www.google.com/search?q=bolton&oq=bolton&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.1697j0j1&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
Anyone have suggestions on where to go for blinds? We aren’t the handiest people and prefer for a professional to install them.
Anyone make the move from Chicago to Dallas?
There is no worse feeling than realising you missed a spot shaving halfway through the day
Are all accountants this self absorbed and concerned about what percent raise you're going to get? It's not like we have time to spend our money anyway.
Got called “catty” at work today because when another staff level wanted to mansplain to me what a VLookup was I told him “thanks but no thanks.” Seems super sexist but not sure how to broach it
Does anyone else have an interest in functional medicine? How did you integrate this into your practice as a nurse/rn? I'm learning a lot and growing more interested in this world.
Ugh— I keep getting told to eat hours.... of course without ‘formally’ saying it and feel that now I’m getting targeted because I’m not— it’s not the first time i’m told it’s just ‘the nature of the work we do’ but it’s not!! I’ve been on teams that actually follow the rule on this. Anyone experienced this before? How did you handle? It’s a tough spot because in a way it is ‘expected’ pending your team leadership but it’s also against firm policy.... but you don’t want to get a bad rep. HELP
Someone is trying to set me up with a guy (who seems nice…but I don’t really know him beyond texting a few times). I was born and raised in America, and he was born in india, and was raised in India until he was 15. It’s a no pressure situation, but I’m so hesitant to even move forward (ie going on a date) because of the culture gap. Am I being unreasonable? I’m 27F and hes 30M.
Posting because I am excited to be wrapping up my 100 miles in 10 days challenge with one last run this evening. For anyone looking for some encouragement to stay in shape during this lockdown, I highly recommend creating your own personal fitness challenge and sharing with friends!It was a huge help for me to stay motivated and be held accountable. Hope you have a healthy and happy Friday!
