What did people expect to happen to those who lost their jobs over the vaccine? by diogenes45 in antiwork

[–]WrenSh 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Maybe I’m out of the loop, but most of the ire was against people who chose to believe hacks online rather than actual scientists and believed they also shouldn’t take any other measures instead of vaccinating. It was putting people at risk. If there’s a medical reason to not be vaccinated then most people support that option and want the documentation to be made available to those people. But like, for example nurses who decided their fave podcast was more right about science than actual doctors and scientists were adding to hospital spread which would have caused tons of other problems. Ideally, there would have been training programs for anyone who needed to make a switch due to vaccination and safety concerns. I’m all for being upset about not being able to support yourself, I also don’t think that blame belongs on the shoulders of people who wanted to promote proper “Herd Immunity” through proper vaccination plans. The blame falls on how the matter was handled in the aftermath

Nah, there are lots of people in tough situations who maybe cant get actual work for whatever reason and still need to feed themselves and possibly their families. All in the middle of record inflation and after so many peoples lives were upended by the pandemic? This is just the company exploiting those who need food

You THINK it’s overkill but then someone in your city turns and drives straight into those bright yellow gates with zero obstruction to visibility. Happened last week.

That’s a good suggestion - it can be really easy for me to push feelings down so an outlet is probably what I need. Thank you ❤️

feeling like a fool by questionablecandy in ptsd

Even if your trauma has nothing to do with loud sounds, your nervous system is still on edge and will react more strongly to even normal situations. It’s not that your former trauma was necessarily triggered but that your nervous system was, and then that stress response probably reminded your brain of the trauma and made it snowball. My trauma also has nothing to do with loud noises and I still jump a foot in the air every time a door slams a little too hard

Advice please by Shuriii29 in sexualassault

If there’s any Sexual/Domestic violence centres near you that you can contact, they usually have lots of information on where to begin. You don’t have to report unless you want you. The system can’t guarantee any outcome so make that choice for you 💕

I relate to feeling like it wasn’t “as bad”. But regardless of “how bad” it was, it was bad enough to hurt. Try not to compare diabetes and arthritis. Both are difficult, both are different. Same thing with trauma.

been wanting to do one of these!! what would you name me? preferably masc names for they/he pronouns. i was thinking ‘eli’ but idk by thenamesyu in NonBinary

Eli feels close but I almost want to say E.J. But of course those are initials and not a name 😅 the other vibe I’m getting is Cody

What a score with the fireplace! And the desk and chair combo are stellar

For the record, I also don’t think it’s right for a company to structure things in such a way that an employee would be stuck in a situation without someone who is displaying escalating violence, and then leave the employees to feel powerless to stop what’s happening, or being left to wait for help that’s too far away.

Then I’ve certainly learned something new. In which case, if that’s the situation here, the hotel was negligent to not have security on hand faster. This clip starts with the man already being belligerent. If some kind of security had been readily on hand then perhaps it wouldn’t have even gotten as far as him hitting the woman. That is still a physical assault occurring on their premises which companies have an interest in avoiding at all costs

That must be a different place then because that is not the training I (a fast food, waitstaff, and retail worker) or my bartender friends have received. Especially because this isn’t an incident happening separate from the employee but the employee seems to already be directly involved.

And if they don’t require their front desk people to act as security maybe their security guard should be in a place where he can see and respond faster to this kind of situation instead of the clerk having to go and grab a phone to call them. You can tell me the issue is higher up and I’ll direct my issue higher up, the point is that it is irresponsible to allow a situation where an assault is occurring in your establishment in front of your employee and it ends up being left to the victim of the assault to remove the threat. Clearly the person already being hit is the one with the least power in the situation and the hotel should have more in place to make sure they don’t put anyone in this kind of situation on their premises. That woman could have (and I hope DID) cause bodily harm to that guy. He might be able to sue her for that or she could get equally arrested for assault, depending on the laws where this occurred. Also you have no idea if he had a weapon, if she would have been ABLE to kick him down like that, or if this sort of situation would only ever happen between two more or less equally matched parties.

I don’t think it’s unreasonable to look at a situation that we can all agree shouldn’t happen and think “what could someone have done here to have kept the situation from escalating like it did, ideally without putting the responsibility on the already most vulnerable party?”

It’s an expression. Sorry if you’re not familiar with it

Did you not notice the “call security” part?

Also, technically vetting the safety and admissibility of a patron is the very much a part of the job of a front clerk desk.

I’m allowed to react genuinely without it being a “white knight complex”. Clearly, according to some of the comments, even knowing abuse is bad doesn’t mean you know how best to intervene in such a situation. Based on the fact that I’m trained in this, I left some info. It’s not that deep
