Wow, that was discomfort made worse by my wild imagination. I kept imagining sneezing and the stick going straight through my brain.
You're supposed to just breathe through your mouth man! I took 4 tests so far and all of them went without issue
Also, will you really be fired if you don't finish?
@Hazarth My nose is as tight as my ass, I can feel the unlubricated stick penetrating to it. I can still feel it right now, especially the throat one. I hope I never had to take that test again, especially now that I searched for an x-ray of the test and just how far that stick goes. Better off unseen.
I probably won't be fired but I don't know, I just feel like a shitty dev most of the time. Why did you take the test many times though?
@rutee07 Im pretty sure ur a good dev. And really I think one has to fuck up royally to be fired for it... Things like "we missed the deadline" just happen all the time and It's a process of learning to estimate and manage better. I think most managers understand that at least...
Ah see, Im in Slovakia:
First test was first wave, before a company party, mandatory
Next two tests were part of the nationwide testing Slovakia did, they were technically optional, but not really, but I didn't have an issue taking those
And lastly another test 3 days ago before company xmas party
It was a smaller party, up to 8 people, we lost a lot of people during first wave, but the way it worked was that to attend you needed a negative antigen or pcr test not older than 5 days. The rest was just mulled wine, food and fun!
We also started a bit earlier during work hours and slowly build up. It was quite nice
