List some positives about the pandemic.

Now when I complain about getting fat, I can say "I'd lose weight, but my gym is closed. Damn you, Coronavirus"

I was fat to begin with, and never went to the gym.

When I don't want to see people, I can just say "I'm really just too nervous to get out yet - sorry!"

by Anonymousreply 107/12/2020

1. I don't have to listen to shitheads shrieking back and forth on speakerphones nearly as much.

2. My friend who always wants to go to the movies can't. So I don't have to worry about it.

3. I don't have to look at all the ugly Michael Kors merch on the bus.

4. I get many groceries delivered.

I can get drunk every night, and don't have to worry about coming in to work with a hangover.

I can sleep later because my commute is non-existent. Can wear more casual/comfortable clothes.

by Anonymousreply 507/12/2020

I can wear shorts every day to work at my desk in my bedroom.

I no longer have to see annoying co-workers except during Zoom meetings. I also no longer have to make annoying small talk with co-workers I can't stand.

If I want to, I can sell my place and move somewhere else and continue to work remotely like I am now.

Social distancing is a dream come true!!!

It's not not having to commute, its nice to rarely do laundry because I don't wear work clothes. I guess it is nice I spend less money.

Other than that, thanks, I hate it.

by Anonymousreply 1107/12/2020

I only have to interact with co-workers through video meetings. I usually wear a nice shirt and underwear.

During one heated meeting that got too intense for me to excuse myself, I took a piss in a flower vase while nodding my head emphatically on the screen to simulate engagement and to minimize any expression of relief from emptying my very full bladder after drinking an entire pot of tea.

I saw the opportunity and seized it. My dog watched the entire operation and appeared traumatized, however.

I don't get to do that at meetings on site.

R12 Best pandemic story I've read in a long time!

Its given me time to think. As a multitasker with several projects going at the same time I've often spent less time reflecting than I ought to on the real priorities. The prospect of death, not to be morbid, has also helped.

I gained so much weight on top of my “overweight” frame that I was heading toward “obese” on the BMI scale. I realized fat people were dying more than anyone else, so I went on Jenny Craig. Lost 13 lbs since May. Would like to lose another 17 lbs.

Catching up on sleep. Drinking gallons of green tea, white tea, green smoothies and disgusting kombucha so I can be immune to covid-19.

The pandemic / quarantine / telework has oddly made me realize that retirement isn't anything I need to rush towards. This has sort of been like a dress rehearsal for me, and while I don't mind this abundance of downtime, days on end at home can get uninteresting.

I have a somewhat fun job, but still, heading into ones late 50's lunch conversations invariably go to, "What's the earliest I can retire and stay home??" Now I dont feel so compelled. Thanks Corona.

Of course once I'm back to 40 hours on-site again, I may forget this epiphany.

I’ve been working from home for the past 10 years and love it. Sadly, I can’t participate in the elation that some of you New WFH warriors are experiencing.

I did enjoy my 90 days furlough very much. As an introvert, that’s not very surprising. However, I’ve been back to work since last week and can feel the stress slowly creeping up. Not happy about that, but glad to be back at a job.

I have purchased just ONE take-away meal in the last 12 weeks!

I am cooking and baking and have much more control of what I'm eating.

by Anonymousreply 2807/13/2020

We had about $300 (no joke) when the pandemic hit. I was driving Uber and gettin flat tires every other night. Now I have over $13,000 and I haven't worked a single day since. Unemployment + PUA + other grants have saved our lives. That $13000 is after paying off old debts plus I still have $8000 in backdated unemployment benefits coming. I know it sounds bad, but the pandemic changed our lives in a positive way. Of course, I wish 130,000 people didn't die and that I could see my friends, etc.

Glad for you R29. It’s what government should do regularly for those who are struggling. Instead of spending billions on corporate tax breaks.

My cheap nail salon is so spic and span you can eat off the floor. Also plastic dividers between stations and some weird jellyfish bladder in the pedicure tubs that they change out after each use. Everyone in masks. Limits of customers in shop. I was prepared to turn around and walk out if protocols were not in place, but was very impressed!

by Anonymousreply 3107/13/2020

Where I live we are required to wear masks in all public places, even outdoors. As a female, I like not having to wear make up now. Just put the mask on and I’m good to go. It saves a lot of time when I’m getting ready to go out.

I have gained 11 pounds however.. which sucks. I really need to get motivated and get back to my low carbing ways.

I went out for groceries the other day and got cruised. HARD.

Before quarantine I was a 6.2 on a good day. But after 130 days of no hook-ups, I think 7 might be within my reach!

No need to go outside in our brutal summer heat, having to slather on sunscreen, etc. Loving grocery delivery. My cooking skills have vastly improved - I never ate so much fresh veg and variety of meals.

by Anonymousreply 3507/28/2020

Eating a lot, watching dozens of movies and series, wearing comfy clothes like shorts and a T, not caring about how I look because no one sees me other than close family (no makeup, no bra, no shoes since March), and staying up as late as I want because I don't have to be up for my commute to work..just over to the computer and I'm there.

Oh, AND not having to make small talk in social situations. In fact, loving not having to socialize.

by Anonymousreply 3607/28/2020

No commute gives me time for a walk or bike ride. I’m getting outdoors more than ever. Also I eat gummy bears and don’t worry about the morning work.

Love curbside pickup. No in-store shoppers to deal with, no "sorry, we're out" or "we don't carry that here"

Oh happy day.

Canceled Equinox membership.

Can cover face in public w/o looking weird.

Introvert, and it's finally ok to stay home.

Don't have to talk to any one face-to-face.

Instagram whores aren't showing off exotic locations as much, and when they do, they look even stupider and more selfish.

More people eating Beyond Meat and the like - vegan foods.

Since they’re too stupid to wear masks or social distance, the virus makes a great “Repug-remover”. Gets rid of those stubborn stains.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
