Thanks for this thread. I was entertained.

Man, you ladies are something. People ask questions because they don’t know, why do we need to be so arrogant by calling them ignorant?

Happy Friday 🙂

You literally just acknowledged the fact that “how messages can easily get muddied” - and you just called me arrogant. You are right. I don’t know who you are or what your background is, but you don’t know mine. Arrogance is an attitude, a perception, a subjective evaluation of someone. I can see you see me that way, but that doesn’t change the fact that the messages are valid, like you confirmed, and op is being ignorant, which is a definitive statement and not a subjective evaluation. Also, you were not nice and calling me “bs”. So look who is talking

Yeah I’m going to have to side with EY1 on this one, you’re being too paranoid and ignorant if you think you can catch it from clothing, unless it came hand delivered by someone from Wuhan.
In general, wash your hands and don’t touch your eyes/nose/mouth

Are humans catching viruses from clothing now?

🤦🏽‍♀️shes asking if the shipping will be delayed because a lot of businesses have been shut down or are super short staffed .. cmon folks

without making fun of OP, here’s a biology 101 fact. Virus transmission requires a vector. This vector must be a living organism for the virus to inhabit in. Bacteria and virus are different in such that the former can survive on a nonliving vector whereas the latter cannot. In other words, if someone does carry the coronavirus, the virus will not survive on their clothes for you to be infected or even transmitted to.

I laugh at your ignorance because there is so much misconception out there that I believe it is necessary to clarify than ignore.

So yes, buy the clothes.

like

A1, you are right. However, the amount of time it would take OP to receive her shipment is about a near certainty longer than the Coronavirus’s shelf life. Plus, viruses survive much shorter on porous surfaces like clothing.

After getting laid off due to Covid I got a nice job in industry, jumped a few titles and got a nice raise in salary.

I also think I’ll be able to create my own projects in the next couple months too so I’ll be able to fix the bored issue

Currently making $250K all-in as a Finance Director but only got 3% increase this past review. My pay was down 5% due to COVID last year, so from 2020 to 2022 my pay is flat.

I don't have any complaints with the work I have and $250K jobs don't grow on trees, but it's hard to swallow essentially no pay increases over 2 years in a high interest rate environment

Short story… office with ~60 people, and everyone is vaccinatted. One person found out they had covid after going to the doctor for something else. Everyone got tested even though we don’t work close to this person. At the end, 4 people had covid (can’t say they got it from the first person who was diagnosed with it) and everyone else was negative.

While it sucks that several people had covid, nobody had symptoms and it didn’t spread to everyone. This is why I got vaccinated

So many people I know (including myself) have put in their 2 weeks notice and are switching companies/firms (across various industries).

Anyone noticed and/or feel the same way or am I just seeing this because I’ve been in school my whole life and this is my first “real” job?
