    • Thanks for the invite, Rufus. As a dead person, I don't live in fear of Covid--I mean, I don't live so I really can't live in fear. I will say that the "quality" of this thread is akin to the Welcome to the Biden Administration thread, so at least there is some consistency.

      • Two months after contracting COVID, I still have a hacking cough and shortness of breath. At least the cough is nonproductive.

        oh, and tomorrow is my first day back in the office since 1/31/2020. I had a good run.

          Have you talked about this with your doctor?

          I had a non-Covid bug last fall and my hacking, productive cough lasted into February. At one point I got an RX for prednisone and that pretty much cleared me right up. URI often turn into nagging issues like that, long after the bug itself is out of your system. But ask a real doctor-type person, not a schlep like me. Even though you didn't really ask.



          Or it's super AIDS.


          Probably the latter.
          I gotta little bit of smoke and a whole lotta wine...

            I’ve had a course of Advair and prednisone, with no luck, and yesterday I just finished a course of benzonatate yesterday.

            Back in my powerlifting days, had I ever taken anabolic steroids, my course of prednisone has proved to me that I wouldve been a huge ‘roid rager.

                Shortly after my company said we are leaving it up to individual discussions between employees and their supervisor, they then started putting pressure on getting people back in the office.

                So, my supervisor had to have a discussion with each person. My supervisor is very flexible, and quite frankly doesn't care as long as you are getting your job done. But, he had to do what he is told to do.

                So, at the start of our conversation, I said, "We will decide in this conversation whether I will be working from home or retiring." He told me, there are a number of people in the overall organization who also will decide to retire for this very reason.

                After the conversation, where he had to tell me the options, he said he will put me down as full remote and see where it goes. You see, to get that status, you need a full swath of approvals. While hybrid or full return is simply just stating that option.

                So, the decision whether I retire is postponed. For now...

                (Oh, and here's the irony. Because our company is suffering huge number of departures, upper management is being measured by how they retain employees. And apparently they are also being measured on how well they get people back in the office. Typical upper management idiocy. They don't seem to understand those goals are mutually exclusive.)
