my spouse is in tech and she remains often the only one, or one of a handful at most, in the office when she chooses to go in, like 1-2x/wk.

and the office building is a full block of over 1M sq ft in hudson square -- it's crazy, but tech doesn't really need to be in there --

although i would say other agencies should and sales should and the like.

Correct. Watch old westerns. They all have that weird gold prospector who lives out in the hills with his mule. Everybody else lives in town. For a reason. Thats what remote work is. Less need for direct management and more independent. That's not most of society tho.

I go in at least once a week, but my department actually downsized last year moving from one building to another smaller one where in our new building, nobody besides the chief has an individual office, we all share touchdown stations that we can plug into and do work at the office as needed.

I agree to a point. Like it is real easy to shoot the shit for a few minutes before meetings. Due to WFH I've gotten to know coworkers who were in other offices a lot more. The human interaction I still get from friend groups outside of work and coworkers I already had relations with I still see.

There's a few women who all got hired at my org while weve been 100% remote and they've become friends with other women who were already at the company, as in going out together. I think a lot of this interaction depends on work culture too. Dont get me wrong many do like how it's easier to cut off from others now but these same people were the ones who kept mostly to themselves at the office I feel like.

The people I worry about most are the Zoomers and generation under them. The digital space is really picking up and they are a big reason why. Most of these people are just kids and not even in the workforce yet but they will be. The oldest Zoomers are in their early 20s now.

^ I’m proud of that statement.

Humans are not robots. We desire company

WFH is a step in our evolution towards irrelevancy. Replace us with computers (or workers from the Philippines) already!!!

Nearly all the women Ive been with I met at either work or at college. Got lucky with a few from Tinder, but that was like 6 years ago. Never been successful getting with a girl at a bar. I did however date a girl I met randomly at an archaeological park in Ohio for a while.

Lol how are you going to tell me no? What a weird thing to say. Also not sure what your swipe at autism was for either. It doesn't make any sense.

Again, no. Most restaurants never closed or have at least been open since June of 15 last year. In other states they don't even understand the concept of outdoor dining, while we already had it before the pandemic. California had a tiered system so an experience in Malibu is not the same in let's say, SD or Sac. Drive 15 minutes north or south and you can find an area that meets your tastes. Plenty of businesses did not require masks for the statewide order and it's a scam perpetuated by a select few who claim CA was the lockdown state.
Are you trying to tell me there were restaurants that were not forced to close? The whole point of the Malibu example was the absurdness of what was going on in Californian at the time.

College is different. Work is just weird IMO. There are plenty of girls outside of work to meet. Not saying run-ins don't happen naturally but to actively hit on girls at work is not cool. Like when I've gone out with female coworkers at a convention or whatever, I'm not trying to get with them at the bar. There's plenty of other women there.

Didnt I say that? I've had my own with a grand total of 3 girls at work during my professional career and I have to say it was not worth it in the end. Way better to keep that play outside of what pays the bills because the options are plentiful but do you lol.

It would be funny if it wasn't so cruel, but school children, the ones that are the least likely to even come down with cold like symptoms, are the last ones to go mask free. It's science!

I had to go into our public library yesterday to use their printer. A whole bunch of school children were in there and had their worthless cloth masks on still and the library still requires them. I haven’t worn a mask in well over a year. They wouldn’t let me in without one and they didn’t have any. So I had to drive to Walmart to buy one. So stupid. Guess the last place you can contract Covid is in public libraries but not Walmart. All of this is so laughable. I feel bad for the kids still not getting proper socialization as they don’t see faces all day long. They’re going to be pretty screwed up.
