• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

tried the knockoff peloton machines at my gym

instead of a creepily fake-cheerful woman with six pack abs telling you what to do, you're offered a stupid simulation where you can't even crash into the fake competitors

meh

It looks like I re-aggravated some torn cartilage in my chest during a workout yesterday. Hurts like hell. The injury is almost a year old, took forever to heal, and this really sucks.
Teaches quiet upper body discipline

If I had that BDE, this is how I would have dealt with the bar situation:

Ashley from my doctor’s office calls me with I think the prescription refill I need. Unfortunately I’m in the shower, but I can right back. I ask for Ashley and i get the response “which one, we have three Ashleys”.

really? You share a first name with two other people at the office and you don’t think to leave your last name?? :fu:

Fuck Cathay Pacific (and fuck my employer for their shitty travel policies that led to this flight home). I'm flying Seoul > Hong Kong > Chicago > Raleigh to get home. There's a weather advisor for the winter storm in the Midwest. American Airlines, who code shares the flight, is offering free flight changes, so I think, "great, I can get around this 12 hour layover in Hong Kong and take a different flight and get home 12 hours earlier."

The problem is my employer booked through Cathay Pacific, so I have to go through them. They're like "only minor delay right now plus you have 5 hour layover in Chicago, so no need to change flight." Thanks, but there is 30 hours for that storm to get worse (which it is predicted to do) and make my delays even longer. To rub salt in the wound, I tried getting into their lounge as after flying more than 30k miles with them in two weeks I'll soon be platinum status and eligible. No, fuck you pleb, come back when you're platinum next week.

Maybe I haven't impressed on you how fucking cheap my employer is. I don't get to pick the airline: I have to go with the lowest cost. In fact, my flight included one segment that was premium economy because it was $200 cheaper than normal coach the whole way. It was flagged and I required special approval for flying out of policy. My employer would rather I spend more to fly coach and know my place. They certainly won't pay for a lounge pass.

I get employers not wanting to buy biz and even premium economy. But ive found that cheaping out that much on long or complex flights so often becomes a false economy.
