There's a very strong rumor going around my work that we're just going to go from 100% remote to 100% back after July 4th. I work for NY and all of a sudden it looks like July is going to now suddenly be a magic flag day. Just rumors at this point, but rumors that the higher ups are talking about too. Lots of signs pointing to this being true.

Of course at work we're packed into tiny little cube farms (we joke that if we committed a crime and ended up in jail, we'd have more room in the cell and it isn't an exaggeration). Our hallways are super narrow and the air system is literally older than me. Of course they won't be able to force people to get vaccinated or even disclose their status.

On top of everything I'm going to be the guy who has to go around to everyone's laptop and get it re-wired for the networks, so I'll be around every person in the office on day 1.

This on top of the extra 10-20% of work they dumped on us since working from home (they figure we have more time to work since we don't have to commute).

My wife was talking with some of her family from Florida and they "aren't getting the vaccine right now" until they "have more information".

A perfect example of how this massive gaslighting campaign has got people all twisted up. These people are Catholic and I'm pretty sure someone sent them the "dead baby parts made the vaccine!" nonsense.

When they found out my wife got the vaccine they were like, "Oh really? Well I'm sure maybe you'll be fine".

I can already see a fight starting when more family wants to get together this summer. I'm going to have a "no vax, no visit" policy on any family. Thankfully all my immediate family got it.

Yea that last part will be interesting. My parents and my brother and his wife got it (kids are only 4 and 6) and they would be the ones I'd spend the most time with over the summer, so no worries there. We're actually getting together this weekend for the kids and my dad's birthday, plus Mother's Day which all falls on the same week. My sister in law's family I'm not sure on vax status but pretty much their entire family and myself are progressive so at least no worries about worrying about MAGA stuff. We'll be outside anyways and she just asks for us to wear a mask in doors when going to the bathroom which I'm completely fine with.

I don't understand why they did not or have not given out QR codes or some s*** for vaccines. I am more than happy having a code scanned to confirm I am vaccinated.

Let's get s*** open lol, properly of course.

I am just annoyed that dumbf***s are buying knock off vaccination cards to circumvent s***. Should have gone with custom scannable codes or some s***.

What's sad is how many people fall for these bad faith arguments. Obama asked you to get your kids vaccinated. So what? He's not "the government" anymore.
Trump actually did a PSA asking people to get the vaccine. Should I react to that and NOT get it? Of course not.

It is all just manufactured drama.

That's M.O. of the right. They have to take advantage of the fear/anger of their supporters. It's how they get them to fall in line.

It's bothers me that we know that Fox and Tucker think their viewers are idiots, but their viewers don't care that they are considered idiots. My fav is the lawsuits against tucker where his lawyers used the defense of you are an idiot if you take tucker seriously.

The issue is tens of millions take his word as fact.

Fox is pretty much openly trying to kill people now


That is just f***ing disgusting that this goes out over a major network news station. This isn't Alex jones or some other online kook, this is mainstream news that goes into almost every home in America.

I think we've had a decline in critical thinking skills. People here like to go on their facebook app in their phone about how they don't believe in science.
