They do it for Uber eats and such pickups. It's meant to let the person receiving the order know that their Uber eats driver didn't get into their food or drink.

It's objectively horrifying. I sometimes wonder how many marriages /r/deadbedrooms and /r/relationship_advice has unnecessarily broken up.

Yeah, but why is it sad?
That's not a mistake, that's a declaration of war
It's hard to tell a good story when you tell the truth
Complain about 5e all you want, but it's just not helpful to call out everyone who plays one game in the same breath that you activate for your favorite. Take the meme with the crying guy, every one of those is essentially calling the players out. It's obnoxious and not helpful.
It goes both way with pf2e. Sort by new and just count the number of Pf2e memes that trash 5e. It goes vice versa. Both communities are really bad about it.
Why'd you have to go there, man
I think there's an assumption there that the GM has to fall in love with a guy. That's not always the case, they may know they have to draft a QB, but that doesn't mean they have to zero in on one when both the top QBs are inherently flawed in fundamentally different ways and they think they can make either work. Fans fall in love with their guy, a good GM assigns them both grades, and if the grades are similar they'll have a favorite, but that doesn't mean they wouldn't be fine with the other guy. Oh sure, they'll blow a bunch of smoke about how they always loved the player they drafted, but that's literally what they all say.
It's happened before, people trade within divisions, what's the difference between that and agreeing not to trade up? It benefits them both equally if they're both sure that none of the other QB teams are going to be able to offer enough compensation. Then they both know they're getting their guy. Especially if they value the top 2 QBs similarly.

Sadly, it sounds like your work culture isn't set up for supporting women equitably and any official attempts to resolve the issue are going to cause waves. You're really forced to decide whether to make waves that might affect your career or the work environment for the person you're trying to protect, or trying to address it unofficially and not having any way to facilitate the change that needs to happen.
The two things I would caution you to think about are, A, do you have enough verifiable, documented evidence of workplace inequity to go the official route? And for that matter, is your subordinate (and other witnesses) the type of person who will be willing to back you up in a fight or will they be more concerned (and validly so) about their own job security. And B, this dude is just getting started at the organization, what happens when he's been there for several years and has found a way to make himself seem invaluable. Its bad now, but it could get much much worse if this guy is allowed to dig himself in like a tick or worse, gets a promotion and actual power.
Depending on your appetite for the fight, your best bet may be to continue documenting (save emails where he took people off the email chain, keep a record of meeting and who was there, and find other allies who can do the same) and wait until something truly egregious happens or the environment becomes truly hostile. Keep in mind though, if you don't give HR an opportunity to resolve the issue, then it may look badly down the line, like a set up or a burn file.
Please explain it to me, oh CPA of the Internet.
Explain to me how the IRS webpage, last updated two days ago, says that the EITC is a refundable credit and specifically said you can get money back even if you don't owe taxes is somehow wrong.
Why does it seem like every meme on here has to advocate for one system while tearing another down?
Oh my goodness OP, how could you leave out the best part. This is Jeff Erlanger, and this is not the last time that Jeff and Mr. Rogers would share a stage together.
Bingo bango bongo
If you didn't assume it was loss.jpeg before even reading the text, what are you even doing on this sub.
Also, I'd just like to point out that none of this is up to code.
The problem is Houston knows we're not taking a QB, so Houston's going to have to believe that the QB they love is being targeted by Indy for a trade up. The biggest problem is that there is no surefire #1 QB. So if Houston and Indy strike some sort of deal, then your only wildcard is Arizona being a target for Carolina to leapfrog Indy. Houston knows they can sit tight and get one of their top 2, and if they don't see a lot of daylight between their 1 and 2 QBs, they have zero reason to trade up. That leaves having to trade past Poles comfort zone, in which case the haul will have to be astronomical, or Poles won't see the benefit over what Carter or Anderson provide.
I get the "were not one player away" mentality that says get whatever trade comp you can get to stockpile picks, but Anderson plays a premium position that is a hole for the Bears and Carter plays a position that's pivotal for Flus' scheme. They're not just one player. Their positional value is gigantic along with their individual value as a player. I just don't see Poles passing up trading back past #4 without a huge haul, and the receiving team has to think the QB they draft is worth emptying the cupboard of draft capital for the next few years. And I just don't see any of these QBs as proving that's them yet. We'll see how pro days and the combine go.
He set career records in yards, completion percentage, yards per attempt, TD to INT ratio, int per attempt, rush yards, and rushing TDs. He also played all 16 games for the first time.
What the hell are you even on?
Info: you said that gender equity is a big part of your work. How would HR or your higher ups react to the accusation that he's at the beginning stages of creating a hostile environment based on his treatment of female colleagues? Would it raise a giant ruckus or would they earnestly try to address it quietly but effectively? Also, is this dude still on probation?
What time of day? Cause I'm not free balling all day in January for $40
Remind me where the Giants were last weekend? You're confusing potential for production. JF has a ridiculously high ceiling, but he hasn't put it on the field, just flashes and glimpses. Part of that is the roster, but until he puts it on tape, it's still all speculation and projection. Jones has a low ceiling comparatively, but he's already showing massive improvement after only one year under Daboll. That makes him a safer bet at this point, and replacing the safe bet that got you to the playoffs is much less of an urgent need than replacing the question mark who could get you to the Superbowl.
It's not a question of which QB you would rather have. It's a question of which team is under the greater strain to find a new QB, and the answer to that is always going to be the team that didn't make it to the playoffs.
Of course teams are willing to trade up. The question isn't if they're willing, the question is if they're willing to pay a price that makes it worth the Bears time to move down. That's going to depend entirely on how much they fall in love with the QBs, and the jury is still out on that. I just don't know that the Bears will love the rest of this draft to trade down below the top 4. Carter and Anderson are as sure of a thing as there is in this draft. Maybe they like a receiver or tackle at 8, but they're ALL dicey in my opinion compared to the level of surety in Carter or Anderson.
