  • That's the soft-pedal Canadian approach.... float the idea out there as a "possibility", then implement it later on. You can bet if political leaders are mentioning it at all, it's coming.
  • I was being facetious in response to Lynn's point that lack of feminine hygiene products would make it impossible for women to work for periods (no pun intended) of time. For the record: I work, I've never been pregnant, one of my favourite mugs says "I only have a kitchen because it came with the house", and I am…
  • Masks are as mandatory as ever in Ontario and apparently they're not considering changing that for a while yet. Most of the vaccine customers right now are second-shot folks. I guess they're looking to coax more first shots into the hesitant. Part of that is making vaccination available in settings like neighbourhood…
  • But... but... wimmen aren't supposed to be in the workforce, their place is barefoot and pregnant and in the kitchen. :p No menstrual bleeding during pregnancy of course. And I guess if she bleeds all over the kitchen floor, it's her job to clean it up anyway.
  • My current proof of Covid vaccination would be even easier to fake, it's an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper with various details about type, lot #, time, date the dose was administered. We don't have cards, my "receipt" is it. Anyone with a computer and a few minutes to play around with fonts could fake it. Come to think of…
  • I am so sorry you and your child have to deal with this condition, and the resulting restrictions on your lives. I hope they will figure out that you can safely have the vaccine soon. <3
  • Much the same in Canada, also called the GST. On top of the Provincial Sales Tax (PST) which varies from province to province. Most grocery food items are exempt, including multi-pack baked goods. But if I buy a single item baked good at a coffee shop it's taxed. So if it was important to me to avoid the tax, I'd be better…
  • It's not even a bona fide skill set, it's just parroting social media nonsense. You give them far too much credit :D
  • I spent a lot of coin on cute masks and I'm getting my money's worth, dammit. Mask wearing is actually pretty awesome right now that our air is thick with forest fire smoke.
  • That's the thing, those of us who were compliant with protective measures and lockdown rules and getting vaccinated generally have no issue with it. My proof of second dose is one of the very few pieces of personal information that I put on my (employer-provided and owned) mobile phone, just in case somebody wants me to…
  • Mild stress: hang out with the dogs, weed the garden (weeding is incredibly therapeutic if you're angry with someone). Major stress: I go into hyperactive productivity. I've redecorated entire rooms in a weekend after a breakup. It's like I need to distract my mind so I go way overboard. But I do get a lot accomplished.
  • My irk of the week is a coworker who comes to my cubicle to ask me a question, then interrupts herself to make a comment about one of my emails, because she's reading my inbox as she stands there. Or the popup notifications if my inbox isn't up on the screen. Office etiquette. It's a thing.
  • My cell phone belongs to my employer. Several years ago our new IT manager switched all the corporate phones over to iPhones but they missed out on me and my old Samsung. When I wanted an upgrade they said I had to take an iPhone but I whined so long and hard about being too old to learn a new system that they got me…
  • Very true! And also what Lynn said. Mixed race relationships aren't super common here (population demographics, not social censure) so I can't really speak to the success or failure of any others. My available dating pool is predominantly same-race anyway. By the way, congratulations on your marriage. I had no idea you had…
  • I had a relationship of around two years' duration with a man not of my own race [I'm white] and the hostility from the women in his extended family was incredible. Apparently I was a slap in the face to all the women of their race because he hadn't chosen one of them. After that experience I'd honestly be very wary of…
  • I don't have children either but I'm happy to educate the doctors, nurses and personal support workers who will be looking after me in my dotage. We already have a treat tax here anyway. I pay tax on a single muffin purchased to consume with my cup of coffee, yet a six-pack of muffins from the same vendor is deemed…
  • Ha! I'm a non-drinker. :p Extra taxes on booze here go to the government coffers. It's possible that some of the money trickles down indirectly to addiction services but there definitely isn't a direct funding pathway.
  • Hey. I'm not obese or overweight. Why do I have to pay extra for my treats? :'(
  • It varies so much by province. In Ontario I couldn't even book my second until June 28th, based on the date of my first shot (which was based on my age), and my appointment is July 20th. Yet I kept hearing about my same-age and younger peers walking into pharmacies and getting their second shot so I looked into it online…
  • Well. While we're on the subject of inspiring women "of a certain age", I can't help but mention that YOU are a huge inspiration yourself <3
  • We might be skin twins. I am somewhat lactose intolerant so I was dairy free for a long time when younger with no improvement in acne (I've since been able to introduce small amounts, spaced throughout the day). Over the years I've tried antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide, retin-A, adapalene without any results. Three six-month…
  • I take a daily multi just as insurance and I've been taking the 50+ formula since my 40s because it has lutein, which my eye doctor recommended. I also take a calcium supplement and D3 per my doctor since I'm very high risk for osteoporosis. And extra magnesium because it's supposed to be good for menopause.
  • This was a conspiracy theory I heard early on, based on a video of some official (Chicago?) acknowledging that hospice patients who tested positive for Covid were being counted as a Covid death. In other words, people who were already dying of something else were inflating the death count. By this reasoning, if a crazed…
  • Not true. Regular old influenza still exists, but the measures in place to prevent Covid transmission also reduced spread of other illnesses like flu and colds.
  • No, my parents didn't exactly object to the eye test, it just failed to produce any results. (And oddly enough it only took place once, in the early primary years.) Probably because neither of them had a benefit plan at the time so they weren't going to shell out money for glasses. So it was more of a "the school shouldn't…
  • Exactly. You and I would have been classified as underweight, maybe even flagged as suspected anorexic. My parents would have howled with laughter if the school had sent home a note with that helpful suggestion. Briefly. Then they would have been quite angry at the intrusiveness of the school. I got an eye test in maybe…
  • I was seeing a counsellor who happened to also be a licensed hypnotherapist so I asked for a session to help with insomnia. No appreciable effect.
  • Same. Although I was a tall scrawny beanpole despite eating like the proverbial horse, because clearly I was expending all my calories attaining height rather than fat. This brought back a memory of doing some kind of fitness testing in gym class, probably 7th or 8th grade. I wasn't a sporty kid or an active kid (I was…
  • I vote for breeding insecurity. Occupying a growing and changing body is tough enough at times without having another metric thrown at you. Agree with ninerbuff, kids know if they're fat. They've probably heard it already, and not kindly. Most of them aren't in charge of their own meal planning and sometimes economic…
  • Well lactose doesn't account for it then! And cheese normally has the opposite effect....
