In response to a confession. LUXURY? AHAHAHAHAHA! It was a real LUXURY having to get rid of my nightstand so I could make a classroom out of the four foot space between my bed and my bathroom door. So much luxury buying and assembling a desk and office chair that I was not reimbursed for! It was really great having to figure out how to teach over Zoom while having parents watch me the whole time! The part where I was waking up during the night and vomiting from stress was super cool! LUXURY, LOL

In response to a confession. How about anyone who actually went to work during this? We didn't have the luxury of staying home.

My cw buys (small inexpensive) birthday gifts for me every year. I don't ever get her anything. And yes, every year I tell her she doesn't have to get me anything. Maybe eventually she'll stop. I never ever asked for anything and we are not friends at all outside the office. I'm not playing that game, sorry. I don't even buy birthday gifts for my siblings. No way I'm doing it for a coworker. I'm just not doing it. I think at this point it's the principle of the thing, for both of us. She's not going to stop with the gifts and I'm not going to start. I guess neither of us want to be told what to do.

For real? "I put it in the box" means ...... you put the thumb drive in the USB port? *headdesk* I can BARELY communicate with you, and you want me to teach you how to put hundreds of PDF files correctly into our online filing system? I won't. I won't do it. I want them to be right. You've already shown me that you can't even scan the actual paper correctly. I don't trust you to do it right unless you're sitting on my freaking lap the whole time. Just no. I feel like Jimmy Fallon's IT guy character. MOVE!

Why am I so tired? I come home from school every day and crash. It's not a sweet, luxurious nap. I basically pass out. I wake up disoriented and groggy. I sleep restlessly during the night and wake up tired the next day. Even when I manage to stay awake and not nap, I'm exhausted. Every teacher I know is going through this. It could be the return to in-person instruction but distance learning was exhausting too. I know it's not just teachers who are tired. I think the entire country is tired. It's been a rough couple of years. Thanks for letting me vent!

In response to a confession. 94% of doctors got the vaccine. When you factor in those that can't for reasons like severe allergies, it's basically all of them. I'm going to take a wild guess that they know more about medical science than you or I. Also, the scientists who actually did the research on mRNA, they're all vaccinated. Going to guess they know more than you too. And it wasn't rushed. They have been researching and working on a SARS vaccine for decades. Tthe only thing that was rushed was the bureaucratic bullshit like funding, which doesn't affect the science at all. But you say all of these doctors and researcheres, who reecommend and have gotten the vaccine, are "spewing basic crap they hear from other people." No, it's actually the anti-vaxxers who are doing that.

Recently started working for a remote call center. I needed a job bad so I took whatever I could get. Some of THE most unprofessional people I've ever worked with. Trash talk/gossip in the chat, bullying each other while on video... the worst part is we have to be on video for half the day for materials that I mostly already understand. It feels like a waste of time and I'd honestly rather be working. Being on video all day is absolutely stressful, worried about how you look to others, positioning yourself to sit a certain way. Oh man, I HATE HATE HATE it... I can't wait 'til I can find a new job.

In response to a confession. I believe scientists and medical professionals know a hell of a lot more about it than I do, so I make the decision to listen to them. Particularly when there are thousands of them saying the same thing and listening to them could mean the difference between life and death. If your brain is working in a way that prevents you from doing this, then fine. If your brain has been influenced by a political agenda. propaganda, or social media and THAT is preventing you from doing this, then you're ... probably a republican.

I love when people make the argument "you don't believe in science" as if they know anything about it. If you had any education at all, you'd know that science isn't always right. I learned this in middle school. When science is rushed, you're going to have errors and failures. And you can't learn the long-term effects of science unless you give it time. Anyone who says "you don't believe in science" is only spewing basic crap they hear from other people. If you really knew anything about science, you'd use facts.

A woman I know quit her job last week, because she has to wear a mask over her nose. Evidently, she's only willing to wear it over her mouth, but not her nose. She's now crying all over social media, pretending to be a victim/martyr, because her boss told her to cover her nose, so she quit. I always thought she nice and normal. I can't anymore with these people.
