bro let her live. she’s been deemed at risk enough to get a vaccine. you don’t know if she has a health condition or is working on becoming healthier. even if she isn’t, you don’t have to shame people for being obese. that doesn’t help anyone but the fucked up diet culture peddlers.

I think the point is we shouldn’t need to be best friends with them to get time off. Normalize people needing to not work sometimes and not needing an elaborate excuse to do so.

u/OverByThere_Innit 545 points · 2 days ago 🔗

Even that shouldn't be categorised and should be discouraged. If you have annual leave to take, it's yours to take as you see fit, it's none of their business why you took it.

But I'm a Brit with 26 days annual leave to take as I see fit, plus paid sick pay on top.

Haha I gotta good story for this one. One time I was having a surgery - elective one. I go to my boss at the time and give him heads up. Now I gave this guy like more than a month notice and told him I will be out for 2 days and possibly work from home the rest of the week. Conversation goes like:

Boss: Why do you need that many days off?

Me: You didn’t just ask me what I’m going to do on my days off. I told you it’s medical related.

Boss: Well I need to know why you need that many days off.

Me: No you don’t. All you need to know is that I will be off and the dates.

Boss: I can’t let you work from home.

Me: I can take the entire week off if you want, so I am trying to be accommodating.

Boss: You are putting the team at hardship.

Me: No I am not. I am offering you remote availability to accommodate any possible needs of the team even though we would be at the end of our software development cycle and we have nothing going on.

Boss: I need more notice than this.

Me: Jason, I’m giving you way more than a month notice. This is that notice you need. (He didn’t need notice, nor the company had such policies)

A few days later he jokingly says: You know if I don’t approve you won’t be able to take off because you won’t get your vacation time.

Me: Let me make it clear to you, I will not be here whether you approve it or not. Whether I will get pay for it or not is my problem.

Let me tell you something nobody in the company ever got their paid time off rejected. The system wasn’t for approval more so scheduling notification. He didn’t have the authority to prevent me from paying me my own money. The company highly encouraged telework as opposed to time off. He was just curious and asked a stupid question, then had too much pride to back paddle from it.

People your vacation time isn’t a gift to you. It is part of your negotiated salary. You accrue them meaning you are earning them just like your salary. You have the right to use them. Even if you are an hourly employee you are entitled to time off by law. The culture in where they act like they are doing us a favor and we will lose our jobs over it is BS. You can sue them over it. They don’t have the right to know why you take time off. It is your time off. Now some jobs they have to schedule people in your place and that’s the only obligation you have is giving them sufficient time. For corporate jobs they don’t even need to do that. So my case was complete bs.

When I was working at Pizza Hut I gave two weeks notice. If you work at these type of places it’s generally people not showing up to work is how they quit. The last few days of that my son got sick. This petty woman had the nerve to ask me for doctors note. I already quit. What you gonna do fire me. I have a sick kid and I’m not going to go out of my way, take him to the doctor, get a note, drive your way to drop off the note. On top get stuck with a bill. I don’t think so.

Man, fucking boomers. Minimum Wage being fucked up? Boomers. Needing a degree for entry level position? Boomers. Cant buy a house? Boomers. Environment, air, and water turned to shit? Boomers. Fucking plastic that doesn’t biodegrade everywhere too? Boomers. Participation trophies? Boomers. Not knowing how to use a remote, phone, VCR, laptop, or any god damn electronic thing without help? Boomers. Those people who won’t shut the fuck up on my Facebook feed? Boomers. My crippling anxiety and fear of failure? My boomer parents.

Bonus one: Quibi?? FUCKING BOOMERS

Edit: Is this a sweeping generalization? Yes. Is it also true in a fuck ton of ways? Also, yes.

But let’s take participation trophies, something so many boomers, writers, and just general fuckheads cite as a problem with my generation...

The participation trophy was created in large part due to the problem of Boomers’ feeling the need for their unspectacular kid to be recognized AND also for boomer parents to parent their kids by way of distraction bribery rather doing the hard parenting of telling their kids they ain’t shit at that one thing but are still special anyway.

Then they say that millennials are entitled because THEY felt the need to give their kids shit like that. No, you just didn’t have the balls, the heart, or the wherewithal to solve the actual fucking problem.

It speaks directly to the boomers recurring issues - have a mild problem, solve it with an empty gesture rather than an actual solution, ignore the fuck out of the original issue itself, let it grow until it becomes its own problem, and then blame the people who got fucked rather than admitting it was a bad fucking solution that made a minor inconvenience into a much bigger and somehow stupider problem.

Yes, as a black person I understand the distrust in institutions

As a doctor I understand mRNA vaccines. It has a spike protein( the battering ram thing that lets the virus penetrate your cells) that’s specifically on covid19. It informs your body to produce antibodies to that spike protein so if the real covid gets in you the immune system recognizes and reacts.

There isn’t one vaccine for the whites and one for us. It’s not a small trial aimed at a certain group like Tuskegee syphilis. Get your fucking vaccine when available. There’s a reason we aren’t awash in polio and smallpox and all that shit. We do a better job killing ourselves with this anti-intellectual shit than the whites do. Microbiology don’t give two fat fucks

Batman doesn't beat up the mentally ill lmao. And the low level thugs he really hurts are the ones who are committing violent crimes....and let me ask, do you think some dude in a costume is gonna go beat up the hedgefunders? Is he gonna go fly to every country on an ass whoopin tour? No, he stays in his hometown and fucks up violent criminals. Bringing his whiteness into it is weak af. And btw batman never calls superman. For anything. He just shows up when needed....if you're gonna trash comics at least attempt to look like you know what you're talking about bud.

The entire character is such a white vigilante justice fantasy, it's almost funny. Beats the dogshit out of poor street-level criminals and/or the mentally ill while almost completely ignoring white-collar crime, then goes to chill in his billion-dollar high tech hideout with his butler.

Then when the shit really hits the fan he calls his super alien buddy who, despite being born on a utopian planet across the galaxy, also looks like a white man.

Don't even get me started on comics.

As far as I am aware, didnt elon musk get his big start from creating and selling PayPal? I just looked into this, even though everything you find on social media must be true, and I cant find much to support this. He himself has denied that this is true, but even if it was, are we going to judge people by their parents or ancestors? His fortune and sucess were not built on the back of apartheid slave labor. Here is a quote from elon musk's twitter, "This is a pretty awful lie. I left South Africa by myself when I was 17 with just a backpack & suitcase of books. Worked on my Mom’s cousin’s farm in Saskatchewan & a lumber mill in Vancouver. Went to Queens Univ with scholarship & debt, then same to UPenn/Wharton & Stanford." He was in debt when he left college. If he was benefiting from a supposid slave labor emerad mine, why did he need scholarships and loans to get through college?
