Covid surge and a new job.

Reason this with me. I am sitting in a small office Friday with 3 people, in a small room that holds about 36 people (3 per cubicle, 2 or 3 per office) all having to wear masks but the whole job is talking on the phone, expelling breathe. I am sitting in this office with two others, door closed. The gal that is training me, while wearing a mask, though some times pulling down and speaking out or readjusting and touching everything tells me.... I do not have a vaccination. As a matter of fact, I have been trying to get covid for the last year an half.
Small office, door shut for 8 hours listening to her answering calls and helping customers trying to get info on covid testing sites and vaccination, and ya, other health issues. 8 hours in a small room, no ventilation telling me she is trying to get covid.

I mean, I get I have to go back to work. I get UI can't be forever. We have morgue trucks pulling into hospitals to refrigerate the dead because too many dying and being overwhelmed in funeral homes.

What do I do with that? A year and half, not seeing boys, not going out, doing all the things I need to do to not get covid cause I doubt my lungs could handle it, though the rest of me is healthy and weight on my side, though blood type not on my side.

I cannot talk to the 30 something young boss having only just been hired. Who knows? He might not have been vacc'ed either and think it his right. Just where do I put this and walk into the office tomorrow?

Prove me wrong....

Rubbery bananas.

I googled but could not find the answer, though others were asking too. Does anyone know why periodically I will buy bananas that look good but they are rubbery. When I try to break them up for my smoothies they just bend, not really break up easily and the smoothie is so thick cause the banana did not break down normally in the mixer.

Curious, .... Gotta find the answers, lol.

Tanden. Help please, on issues.

All I am hearing here are her mean tweets. And that is pure silliness to me along with wagging fingers and scolds from men. But, I also hear there are other reasons to not want her. Twitter was all over me, but mostly Sanders people and I am so done arguing with them. I have done a bit of research but conversation will make it easier.

Why does Biden really want Neera Tanden? And is it just a divide with Sanders supporters/Republicans and the Democratic base? I know she went after Manchin daughter with epi pen increase, I remember that one.

What I have heard that makes her not a good candidate, though the people arguing use much more harsh ugly language for the woman, like vile, evil, wh**e. That tends to make me fight for a woman even harder.

I have heard from people on twitter:

Against ss. (I figure this is like Sanders supporters going after Biden during the primary which was bogus)
Outed sexually harassed woman in corporate meeting. (I heard it was accident, Sanders supporters said she purposely and repeatedly).
Something about Lybia and wanting to murder lots of people.

Can you all help me out your opinion of what makes her strong or a weak candidate? What I have read about her "mean" tweets is crap.


Update: How do I hide threads with specific words? I have read I can put in hearts and valentine

and all threads that have that in the subject will not show for me, but I cannot figure out how to do it. Can anyone help me?

They are cool and all that, and all fun and nice. But, I cannot find the other threads to read. There are a lot of thankful and appreciative people.

Edit to add: It looks like a few other people needed this information. I am leaving the thread with instructions for anyone else looking to clean up Latest.

Top right. My account.

then the folder tabs, ... Trash can.

then there is a box that allows you to enter words. I put in Thank you, heart, hearts, valentine. That seems to have taken care of most of it.

Second Edit: Something really funny? I look for this Op but I cannot find it because I have hearts and valentine in the title and is hidden from me. I thought I was going bonkers. Too funny. Made me laugh.

If you are out of UI this week or one week shy, still keep filing the weekly claim.

I have been stressed for the last couple weeks not only getting an extended UI but also getting kicked off UI today, filing my last claim and what does that mean for us.

Someone gave me an heads up that their state says keep filing that weekly UI. That makes sense to me. I feel much better that there is a reasonable answer to the possibility of what we need to do and since I was stressing so, I figure others are to. so an heads up for those inn the same situation or info for others, if they her of someone else asking questions.

So when the 13 wk, Dec 26 deadline is used, keep filing that weekly claim.

Thanks Lefta for the info.
