I went back into the office on Tuesday for a full days work for the first time since the end of February (WFH began whilst I was on leave). Pretty weird. Apart from my team of six who were only in to welcome a new member with lunch, there were only four others in out of 100.

My building fully reopened on Monday, no restrictions, full amenities, but people are staying home. Even the director on my floor is only coming in twice a week.

The future is now. Getting dressed and commuting to work is now akin to working from a separate site that’s a pain in the arse to get to and throws your whole day off. Why would I go back to that when I can spend all summer swimming during lunch and having the grill lit by 5 every evening?

I've been going to the office once a week since mid September. Our offices aren't officially open but anyone who wants to come in can provided they pass a health screening.

Some days there are maybe 3 or 4 other people there. Other days I'm by my lonesome. I was recording something for our social accounts at my desk and the lights went out because they're on a motion trigger and nobody moved for half an hour.

Such is life in 2020.

This is the thing that a lot of people (who haven't been back at all) fail to understand. The office you're going to is most certainly not the office you left.

I've been in maybe a half a dozen times since March. It sucks. Nobody is there, the kitchens are off limits, the restaurants in the lobby are closed, you have to follow arrows around the hall making for a ridiculous 5 minute hike to the women's washroom - where only one person is allowed in at a time. You can't meet with anyone so you're sitting in your office on a Teams call with somebody down the hall...why the hell would I put on a suit and do my make up when I could stay at home in sweat pants.

Even post vaccine, most businesses will have some kind of hybrid model. Talk to large commercial real estate lessors and you'll see how many businesses are downsizing or outright eliminating office space. It's staggering.

Our offices have remained closed since March, and even when they eventually reopen, I won’t be going back full time. Just not necessary.

I don't know about Dr. Fauci appearing on the cover of People. He will be criticized for it, of course he's criticized anyway. Not all that different from doing Q and A s with celebrities on Instagram I suppose.

Here in Canada, opposition politicians are pretending that we'll be the last people in the world to get vaccinated and a lot the media is repeating those claims...but they're straight up lies. it's appalling.

It says that now because it wouldn’t dare admit it can’t make the 1 billion claim.

We need a functional federal government and the next 6 weeks could potentially delay us until summer / fall for the general population to be vaccinated.

Here in SD county, we are going back to a shelter in place, with retail stores still open but at 20% capacity threshold.

Everything else is back to take out / delivery

It would be fan-fucking-tastic if, you know, we obligated all of these companies to supply vaccine development capability to other companies globally at a reduced rate and proliferated the vaccines.

You know, so it’s not all about business. And hey, those companies might lose out on billions, but at the same time we won’t be liable for ensuring a US-made vaccine gets to other counties and won’t come off as “reserving it for us first.”

They should do what’s right and return the world to normalcy.

Mom and grandma were released from hospital. Grandma went to nursing home to rehab her hip. She never really had more than a cough from covid. 95 and won’t ever die i think which saddens her. She was hoping this was it.

My mom still on oxygen and said she can walk once around the block and feel ok. She’s back to annoying me over the phone so i know she’s feeling better.

Just never know with this virus on who survives or doesn’t. But glad to know she’ll be around for some more time

Glad to hear both are on the road to recovery.
Grandma sounds like she's a strong woman.

Great news, BEAL.

I understand your grandmother's state of mind because my grandfather (last of my living grandparents) was the same - he said that he felt like the last Mohican. His wife had died, his sister, all of his friends, people he had worked with, his neighbours and so on.

Yep. And it’s making her even more cranky than she was before. Always a worry wort and complainer but now it’s really bad. When i last saw her a year ago it’s all she could talk about was how she wanted to be with him

Hopefully one of these nights she closes her eyes for the last time.

Here’s some covid vaccine poll info
