Tell me in I’m over reacting. So I moved in with my boyfriend during Covid. We are quite different in a lot of ways, one of which is I’m often overly empathetic. Today we were going to the gym and a girl in my building was practically in tears because she had to board a flight and didn’t realize her dog needed a carrier. All the stores are closed and she couldn’t get one. She was offering to pay to rent someone’s so I offered mine. My boyfriend got extremely pissed at me and said I (contd below)

Is there any travel insurance that would pay your hotel if you went to Europe got Covid and had to quarantine?
My agency is working in office and encourages everyone to come in. COVID has NOT gone away, but I’m scared to ask to WFH. Please give me strength and advice
Private schools are back in session while the public schools are virtual due to covid. Once again the lower income communities are screwed while the wealthy are able to continue as is. Except this time its the kids and this is a v long term impact well past Covis. Can we really not reopen (even partially) schools safely ?
Had covid, got J&J, just tested positive for Covid again. Same symptoms, did anyone experience a shorter turn around time
Who else staying home this NYE due to Omicron? My partner has COVID, I’m negative but staying home just in case. Trying not to get FOMO.
Something to keep in mind the next time a conservative in your life screams about crime while saying COVID is nothing more than the flu.
Anyone else think this bowl should be renamed "Current Events?" The threads are expanding way beyond coronavirus.
Has anyone successfully talked to their neighbors about noise during this time? New neighbors moved in and their footsteps are driving me crazy. Didn’t have this issue with the neighbor before, I don’t think they have any rugs down. I already blare my tv, use white noise etc to try to drown it out, but I still hear it. Talked to the office but nothing has been done and I would talk to them personally, but concerned with covid situation.
Covid has got me thinking about how much I hate my job and how I could do better in another field. Would love to create a community of like-minded professionals looking to change course in their career and help each other get there! https://joinfishbowl.com/bowl_cixyv
For those of you who have moved back home(due to COVID or holidays), how has your dating life been impacted?
Is there anybody else here who has experienced toothaches/jawaches weird pressure/numbness in their teeth as part of their covid symptoms? The numbness sometimes spreads to the rest of my face and my bottom teeth which leads me to think it might be a nerve-related issue. Context: I tested positive on 21st Dec, already negative but my front top teeth have been driving me crazy. Just been to the dentist a couple of weeks ago, never had any dental issues, my teeth are in great shape.
The coronavirus has me more anxious

Which one do you prefer on the weekend (pre COVID-19): Hitting the bars at night, or day drinking/brunching?
Unpopular opinion - aren’t we supposed to be under a lockdown and avoiding public gatherings. These protests will only increase Covid-19 cases and put us back to where we started.
Not crashing anymore.

Funniest wifi names you've seen?
What does hitting rock bottom mean? Also I have no kids and single and hate my job. Should I take the risk of quitting : using emergency fund to pay rent to try and find something I like or just suck it up and work the corporate job?
Now that comp results are out - DTE/Promoted?/Old level-New level/% base increase/% bonus/happy??
When you miss your connecting flight bc ORD is too foggy to land into. ORD is ground stopped. No planes can land atm.
I think I’m not cut out for consulting - I just can’t be this deadly serious about every thing, every day. It’s exhausting and everyone acts like everything is life or death. Am I missing something?
So on a curious whim I did that feminist challenge where you don't move out of the way first when walking towards a male. Tried it out yesterday at the airport ... already collided with 5 men. 😂😂😂
Really like a few opportunities at S& and think my profile is a good fit. Anyone open to provide referral?
Amazing news of the Twitter acquisition by Elon. Freedom of speech is back. I know a lot of ppl are salty and really don’t know why everything gotta be political lol
This is the first year I’ve owed taxes, and it’s infuriating to think that the government thinks they didn’t take enough of my money in every check. Like, all those thousands every check wasn’t enough for you? This is why people avoid taxes. What are some deductions you guys use without doing a lot of work (owning businesses).
Know we just had a thread on this but: What's your ideal S/T exit opp and corresponding exit strategy. Asking for a friend.
