Woman Bored During Isolation Calls All Of Her Exes To Ask What Went Wrong

A bored university student decided to spend some of her quarantine time phoning exes to ask what went wrong in their relationships – seeing it as a chance for self improvement.

Rebecca Lockwood, 19, was inspired by a quote on Twitter by Kitty O’Meara and decided self isolation was a great chance to learn from mistakes.

The quote read: “And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still.”

 

So the English and creative writing undergraduate from Cannock, Staffordshire, thought who better to help her grow than her exes? We salute you, Rebecca, as this is *very* brave.

 

Yep, in a bid to learn from her mistakes, Rebecca asked three guys what went wrong and how she could improve.

Jay

Her first call was to ex-boyfriend Jay, who she dated for several months last year.

The pair lived opposite each other in first year university halls and ended up in a relationship.

Rebecca later broke up with Jay in bed.

Jay said: “I think initially everything was really great because we were both available, living super close and the thrill of it all was the sorta uni vibe you would want.”

But in essence, he felt that their relationship was probably born out of convenience and that Rebecca probably thought “yes I’m nice and I look after you” but wasn’t “getting the most out of someone you should be fully committed to”.

Well that was a pretty pain-free first call…

Tim

Call two was with Tim, whom Rebecca had dated for a couple of months about three years ago.

Rebecca ended this relationship too – but when going to do it, she says Tim was impossible to break up with.

She even went as far as to lie about her sexuality, but even then he offered to work it out together.

Upon questioning on the phone, Tim said the dumping was out of the blue.

He continued that Rebecca “then blocked me and wouldn’t speak to me about it,” something which Tim advised she shouldn’t do in future.

But in a funny turn of events he ended up apologising to HER on the phone call.

He said: “I do wanna say, and I feel this is a good time to say it, that I’m sorry for after it happened and I came to your house, still feel like a dick about it years later.”

Tim had showed up at her house with a photo book with hand-annotated memories and flowers. Sweet or creepy? We’ll leave that to you to decide.

Ed

Call number three was a little more brutal.

Ed was Rebecca’s first kiss in school – it was outside Greggs. The romance.

The short-lived relationships ended within days (as often teen love does) but Rebecca says the pair are still pals.

This is probably why he was the most upfront with his feedback…

On questioning, Ed said: “Oh for f**k sake – are you taking the p**s?

“How long was our relationship? Three days?!” he continued, before reminding Rebecca she’d got her “scary friend” to dump him – a classic high school move.

He advised: “In terms of improvement, maybe you could have the boll**ks to dump me yourself.”

He also offered her tips and said she could be more confident, more affectionate and “could have shown a lot more enthusiasm for the general experience of it all”.

Sounds like she just wasn’t really that into it, Ed.

So to round off, we think Rebecca has learnt not to dump BFs via her pals, not to instantly block them, and… errr…probably not to lie about her sexuality when dumping someone.

But most of all, we’re sure she got a good laugh out of it. It’s amazing what self-isolation boredom can make us do!

8 Zoom Alternatives For Virtual Meetings, Parties, & Happy Hours

If you’ve been using video calls to stay in touch with coworkers, family, and friends during these past few weeks, you’ve likely been using a video conferencing app like Zoom. But if you’ve been worried about some of Zoom’s recent privacy concerns or just want some other options for keeping connected to the people in your life, there are some great alternatives for Zoom, and turns out, they’re just as easy to use.

With people adhering and adjusting to social distancing guidelines, searches for “video conferencing apps” have increased dramatically. Google Trends shows that since mid-March, these searches have hit never-before-reached heights. Google searches for “Zoom” have seen a similar increase during this time.

While Zoom is the No. 1 most downloaded video conferencing app and may be great for work meetings, virtual happy hours, and Powerpoint parties, there are some other apps out there that are ideal for getting work done, virtually hanging with friends, and keeping in touch with loved ones while in quarantine. Zoom is a great option, but it’s not the only option out there for you. Here are eight Zoom alternatives that you can download on your desktop or phone right now.

1. Google Hangouts

Google Hangouts is a great alternative to Zoom that has many similar features.

With Google Hangouts, you can do all of the same functions that are available on Zoom with some key differences, which include a maximum participant number of 25 people per video call (Zoom’s max is 100), no limit on the length of video calls (Zoom limits group meetings to 40 minutes), and screen-sharing capabilities (with Zoom, multiple people can share their screens while Google Hangouts only allows one person to do so). Google Hangouts is a great choice when it comes to small team work meetings, one-on-one talks with loved ones, and weekly check-ins (or dance parties) with your friends.

2. GoToMeeting

GoToMeeting is a platform used by businesses to conduct meetings, interviews, and other virtual hang-outs. Once you have an account (plans start at $12 per month) you can host a meeting and invite anyone else. If your business or place of work wants to move away from Zoom, this is a great option. GoToMeeting is a little more technically advanced than Zoom, such as the ability for the meeting host to control screen settings, including adjusting the brightness, shadows, and highlights for visuals.

3. FaceTime

You can use Group FaceTime to stay in touch with friends.

While FaceTime isn’t really used for work meetings, it’s still a great way to stay connected with your friends and family while social distancing. FaceTime is super easy to use, and calling someone up only takes a few taps. Plus, since Apple introduced Group FaceTime, you can use the app for quick group calls with your friends. While Zoom may be a great option for scheduled meetings, Group FaceTime calls are a great option for spur of the moment conversations with friends and family. It’s definitely the more personal and casual option.

4. BlueJeans

BlueJeans boasts itself as the “world leader in cloud video conferencing.” You can use BlueJeans to video conference from any smart device, making it an easy platform for all users to navigate. There are Meetings, Rooms, and even Events you can host and invite others to. A great option for businesses, BlueJeans is perfect for when you want to have a quick work meeting without the fuss of figuring out any extra technology.

5. Skype

Skype has been around since 2003, making it a great and reliable way to stay connected with others. Whether you want to have a quick work meeting, host an interview call, or just check in with your friends, Skype is a viable option that allows up to 50 people in a phone or video call. Plus, online calls are free. Skype is the easier option, mostly because people are usually already familiar with the software, whereas Zoom is something many people are just now starting to figure out.

6. Jitsi

Jitsi is a free and open multiplatform voice, videoconferencing, and instant messaging application. The platform prides itself on better-quality videos due to a higher resolution compared to its competitors. While it’s traditionally used for work, it can serve as an option for talking with friends as well. Unlike its competitors, Jitsi is entirely free and has unlimited calling, making it a more cost-effective way to conduct day-to-day business.

7. Houseparty

If you’re looking for a more lively way to talk with friends, Houseparty is the way to go. It’s similar to Zoom in the way that it allows each user to see all other people in the call, but there’s a maximum of eight people allowed in each call. Aside from regular video calling, the Houseparty app allows you and your friends to play different games together, including Trivia, Heads Up, and Quick Draw, so it’s ideal for casual get-togethers.

8. Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a great option for businesses, especially if a lot of your work is already done using Microsoft Suite. It’s a way to consistently use the same platform for all of your work. Video calls can host up to 250 members and is a great option for those who want to have work or class presentations. While it shares a lot of similar Zoom features, including file sharing, screen sharing, and text chats along with video calls, Microsoft Teams is more suitable to those who want to keep their all of their professional work in one place.

Pa. Liquor Stores Expand Curbside Delivery Program, Increase Number Of Stores Available For Service

Starting today, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is expanding its curbside delivery program that was rolled out as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

When the program first started, many who tried calling to place orders couldn’t get through — they would simply get a busy signal.

Many customers said they would try calling multiple times every hour.

Recognizing the demand, the Liquor Control Board is expanding their program, and more stores will be accepting orders for pick up.

When KDKA first reported about curbside pickup, there were 17 locations available for curbside delivery in Allegheny County.

With the expanded program, that number has now jumped up to 70.

Surrounding counties have also increased their number of locations.

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board says they were aware of peoples frustrations.

“Beginning Monday, we’ll have 565 Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores across Pennsylvania accepting orders by phone for curbside pickup,” said PLCB Chairman Tim Holden in a press release.

“We acknowledge that Pennsylvanians are frustrated with busy signals and want broader access to wine and spirits, so after learning from our experiences this past week, we’ve made improvements to process orders faster, expand the hours we take orders by phone, and be more flexible in scheduling pickups, even the same day, if pickup appointments are available,” Holden said.

Across the commonwealth of Pennsylvania:

  • 565 locations available for curbside pickup
  • Service is offered on a First-Call, First-Served Basis
  • The expanded program goes into effect starting at 9a.m.
  • 50 to 100 Orders will be fulfilled per Day, p[er Store
  • Pickup will be available from 9:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday

The previous regulations of one order per caller, per store, per day with an order limited of up to 6 bottles will still be in effect.

Some stores will operate on a more limited basis, such as less days being open and fewer hours.

Details on specific store hours and locations can be found online.

People are Discovering Affairs While Quarantined With Their Spouses

When most couples vowed for better or for worse, they likely didn’t imagine a scenario in which they’d be quarantined together indefinitely—while a global pandemic threatened their health. And their families’ health. And their jobs. And all of their normal routines. So, perhaps it’s not such a surprise that divorce lawyers’ phones are lighting up with distress signals from marriages collapsing under the strain.

Once the courts open back up, predicts attorney Heather Hostetter, “It’s going to be divorce-apalooza.”

In China, where life has slowly begun to return to normal, divorce filings are reportedly surging as people emerge from their lockdowns. Anecdotal evidence indicates there’s a decent chance the same thing will happen here.

Hostetter, a partner at Hostetter Strent, says she’s heard from one woman who believes she’s discovered her husband is having an affair. The woman was already suspicious pre-quarantine, says Hostetter, but spending so much time trapped under the same roof has heightened her anxiety. For one thing, “The other spouse is being super protective of the phone, in a way that seems out of character.” For another, says Hostetter, he’s been taking extra-long bike rides. “She raised with me, ‘I think he goes out to exercise and he’s seeing this person and having sex. Not only does that make me feel like crap, but then he’s exposing our whole family to a possible Covid-19 contact.’”

Tracey Coates, co-chair of the family law practice at Paley Rothman, has also heard from spouses who’ve come to suspect infidelity while under quarantine. “They’re grappling with overhearing hush-hush calls in a separate room,” she says. “Or texts are going off at all hours.”

One big problem: there’s not much they can do about it right now. Which is why Hostetter says she counseled her new client to “think about what you can handle. … Do you really want to ask? Because if he’s going to be honest with you, is this really the time you want to know?”

The courts are almost entirely closed. And the logistics of seeking marriage counseling or packing up and leaving have obviously been complicated by coronavirus. Not to mention, many couples have children at home who are already under enough stress without having to witness the dissolution of their parents’ marriage.

Even making the call to a divorce lawyer is tough under the circumstances: Attorneys report hang-ups mid-conversation, presumably because the other spouse has walked into the room. Hostetter says the woman who suspects an affair called from her car.

Sandy Ain, a partner at Ain & Bank, says he’s heard from spouses on the other side of the infidelity equation—people who were carrying on affairs before Covid-19, and are now unhappy in their marriages because they can’t see their paramours. “The level of frustration [with their spouses] is enhanced, because they’re precluded from engaging in activities that they’d prefer to engage in,” he says.

But cheating isn’t the only issue. As parents balance Zoom meetings with home-schooling, lawyers say resentment is creeping in. “Another thing we’re hearing is, ‘look, I’m the only one doing everything. Maybe I’m the only one bringing in income, and I’m certainly the only one managing my kids,’” says Coates. “I’ve heard that from two people recently— ‘I’m doing everything anyway. This is toxic and it can’t continue.’”

More serious problems have also been exacerbated by quarantine. “A couple of women who’ve called me have been with husbands who are very emotionally abusive, and verbally abusive,” says Cheryl New, a partner at New & Lowinger. “It’s magnified when you’re stuck in the house.” (Though courts are deferring most cases, they are making exceptions for matters that could become dangerous.)

Hostetter predicts that yet another category of spouses—she calls them “Machiavellian thinkers”—will view the tanking economy as convenient for a divorce, since forgoing half their assets won’t equate to as big of a blow. She says such clients also sought her out after the 2008 crash. “Maybe it wasn’t the quarantine that did it, but maybe they know their marriage isn’t till death do us part,” she explains. “And they’ll decide to end it while their net worth is in the toilet.”

Bodies were transported to Philadelphia’s medical examiner in the open back of a pick-up truck

Workers assist the driver of the pickup truck (far right, with back to camera) as he pulls a body from the back of the truck and onto a gurney, in an area near the Joseph W. Spellman Medical Examiner Building on April 19.

(CNN)Shocking photos show seven bodies, in the open back of a pick-up truck in Philadelphia, which were transported from a local hospital to the medical examiner’s office Sunday.

The Philadelphia Department of Health confirmed the incident and the number of bodies in the truck.

“The transportation of the bodies in that manner is a breach of protocol,” said James Garrow, spokesman for the Department of Public Health.

“The Medical Examiner’s Office regularly works with hospitals throughout Philadelphia to ensure that bodies are treated with the utmost dignity and respect,” Garrow told CNN on behalf of the Medical Examiner’s Office. “The Health Department is appalled that this happened, and strongly reminded the referring hospital of the existing protocols. This is not normal or acceptable.”

The bodies were being transported from Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia to an overflow storage area, according to a spokesman from the hospital. The cause of death of the deceased is not known at this time.

The pickup truck arrives, with bodies under the mats in the cargo bed, at a space near the Joseph W. Spellman Medical Examiner Building in University City on April 19

The photos, taken by the Philadelphia Inquirer, show bodies stacked in the flatbed of a pick-up truck outside of the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s Office overflow storage area. In one of the pictures, individuals wearing masks are moving a body to the edge of the flatbed where a gurney waits to transport the body.

DOH spokesman Garrow confirmed that these pictures are, to the best of his knowledge, of the incident.

“Upon learning of this incident, Einstein immediately launched an investigation to understand all the details related to this matter,” a spokesman for Albert Einstein Healthcare Network told CNN. “As a result of that investigation, we swiftly ended our contract with the funeral home responsible for this occurrence.”

The spokesman did not name the funeral home that Einstein says is responsible for the transportation of the bodies, but confirmed they did question Einstein employees as well as their contacts from the funeral home and the medical examiner’s office.

“We are equally appalled by these photographs and as a hospital in the epicenter of the Covid-19 pandemic in Philadelphia, we understand these unprecedented healthcare challenges, and all patients should be treated with respect and dignity at every stage and this should never happen,” said the Einstein spokesman, adding that the individuals depicted in the Philadelphia Inquirer’s pictures are not Einstein employees.

The City of Philadelphia is not investigating this incident as the protocol on the transfer of bodies is clear, said Garrow.

“The transferring hospital was reminded of the long-standing protocols for body transport and they are working with their contractor to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”

How To Stay Connected While Social Distancing, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

The unprecedented coronavirus pandemic has changed daily life for almost all of us, and it hasn’t been easy. What has made me feel better over the past couple weeks of practicing social distancing is eating copious amounts of chocolate, making gratitude lists to remind myself of how blessed I am, and analyzing the astrology charts of all my ex-boyfriends, which I highly recommend doing because… why not? And of course, perhaps most importantly, leaning on the support of my friends and social network has been huge.

Because although most of us are unable to see many of our friends or family members in person right now, maintaining that connection is even more important. In fact, the World Health Organization prefers to use the term “physical distancing” instead of “social distancing,” to emphasize the fact that socially, we’re still in this together — and there are many options to help us stay socially connected despite the current circumstances.

But admittedly, staying social while social distancing takes some added effort and creativity — it’s not as easy as simply swinging by your friend’s place for dinner or hitting happy hour after work anymore. We now have to think about interesting ways to connect virtuallyAnd if you’re looking for a little inspiration on ways to stay connected, it can be helpful to look to astrology.

Aries: Quarantine Challenges

Tina Gong/Bustle

Your Instagram feed and story cycle are likely full of people embarking on various viral “quarantine challenges” — whether it’s dance challenges or push-up challenges. As a competitive Aries, you’re sure to have some fun by getting in on the action. Participate in as many as you can handle — and tag your friends with some encouraging asks to do the same.

Taurus: Virtual Book Clubs

Tina Gong/Bustle

Curling up in bed with snacks, cozy blankets, and a Netflix queue is totally fine by you, Taurus — by why not switch things up by burning through a few good books and connecting with friends? There are lots of virtual book clubs you can join right now. Or if you’re feeling inspired, put your good taste to good use and start your own book club.

Gemini: Memes

Tina Gong/Bustle

Memes seem to bring people together in times of hardships. And you’re likely a master of them, Gemini. Your quick wit and sharp sense of humor makes you the perfect conduit for memes that will bring a smile to your friends’ faces. So put your meme collection to good use and start sending them out as text conversation starters.

Cancer: Snail Mail

Tina Gong/Bustle

You love to keep things old school, Cancer, so go fully classic and send your friends some love via good old-fashioned snail mail. Whip out your cutest stationary and your middle school sticker collection and get creative by writing some sweet, personalized notes to all your friends.

Leo: Lip Sync Battles & Karaoke Parties

Tina Gong/Bustle

If Broadway stars can make lip sync videos from their quarantine quarters, well then, surely a Leo can! You can’t keep all that talent and sparkle bottled up inside without a little release, so host a virtual karaoke party or lip sync battle and let the good times (and the Mariah Carey solos) roll.

Virgo: Virtual Group Exercise Classes

Tina Gong/Bustle

Maintaining a healthy routine is important to you, Virgo, so get in your daily dose of fitness by participating in virtual group exercise classes. Many fitness instructors and gyms have moved their sessions to an online format for a lower cost (or sometimes even for free). You can even join the fun via Instagram live sessions or on other platforms for a greater sense of community.

Libra: Throw A Zoom Happy Hour

Tina Gong/Bustle

You’re a social butterfly, Libra, so keeping distance in your social life is probably a foreign concept to you. But you’re bound to find a way to bring some highly-curated social time back into your friends’ lives. The perfect way to do that? Host a Zoom happy hour. Pick a date and time,and have a great time sipping a beverage of choice with pals via the interwebs.

Scorpio: Classic FaceTime or Skype Calls

Tina Gong/Bustle

Maintaining intimate relationships with the people closest to you is important, Scorpio, so give yourself some face-to-face and heart-to-heart time with your best pals. No need for anything fancy — simply using FaceTime or Skype on your phone or laptop can allow you much-needed bonding time with your inner circle.

Sagittarius: Hit Instagram Live

Tina Gong/Bustle

You’ve got a big personality, Sag, so don’t hide it from the world just because you’re stuck indoors. It seems like everyone’s going live on Instagram out of sheer boredom and a craving for connection — but you always have something interesting to say. So say it! Whether it’s showing off your dance moves or cooking a meal live, you’re sure to foster connection and let everyone in on your happy-go-lucky energy.

Capricorn: Throw A Zoom Game Night

Tina Gong/Bustle

Cap, you need to take your mind off the stresses of our current situation and have a good old-fashioned bonding night with your friends. Keep things a little lighter by hosting a virtual game night. Whether it’s a game that everyone owns (Apples to Apples, anyone?) or choose one that doesn’t require any materials (Truth or Dare, if I may), you and your friends can have a great time and you can take your mind off things.

Aquarius: Keep Up On Reddit

Tina Gong/Bustle

You tend to be a loner, Aquarius, so you may find yourself more able to adapt to the current changes. That said, your inquiring mind always wants to know more, so keep yourself entertained and social by connecting with people on Reddit or another online forum that reflects your interests. Sparking up interesting conversations with people who are passionate about the same things you are can boost your spirits.

Pisces: Get Creative

Tina Gong/Bustle

Expressing yourself through art has always been therapeutic, Pisces, so connecting with friends via art is a great way to stay social while also soothing your worries. There are lots of quarantine art challenges that you and your friends can join (or that you can join solo!). Hashtags like #QuarantineArtClub are a great place to get started.

37 Hilarious COVID-19 Pick-Up Lines

I love these!

Keen to get close to a new special someone? Think again big dog. Social isolation has us indoors and out of the social scene, making it the perfect time to step up your Tinder game. If you want to break the ice, the key has always been a great pick-up line, and the fundamental formula for a show-stopping opener? Timeliness.

Having your finger on the pulse is a sure-fire way to get your fingers on something far lucrative; those digits (get your mind out of the gutter). If you can put a humorous spin on the news of the day, you come across well-versed in the art of seduction, and there’s nothing more timely than COVID-19. Now, we’re not advocating bad taste, in fact, most of these coronavirus pick-up lines should never be used by anyone, at any time, but they might be worth a good chuckle. Heaven knows we could use one right now.

Here’s a list of 37 funny Coronavirus pick-up lines.

  1. Is that pneumonia in my lungs or has your smile just left me breathless?
  2. You Smell So Good, Is That Purell You’re Wearing?
  3. I’m just a boy, standing 6 feet away from a girl. Asking you to maybe move back another foot. Thanks.
  4. Are you an N95 mask? Cause I want you on my face.
  5. Cough here often?
  6. You can’t spell virus without U and I
  7. I saw you from across the bar. Stay there.
  8. “I really can’t stay” / “Baby it’s COVID-19 outside”
  9. If COVID-19 doesn’t take you out, can I?
  10. Do you need toilet paper because I will be your Prince Charmin.
  11. Hey, I wash my hands when there’s no pandemic too ;).
  12. Hey Babe! Can I ship you a drink?
  13. Even during the corona pandemic, the most contagious thing is still your smile.
  14. Is it hot in here or is it just our fevers and shortness of breath?
  15. One-ply? Two-ply? Neither. The only thing I’m looking for is your re-ply
  16. Is that hand sanitizer in your pocket, or are you just happy to be within 6 feet of me?
  17. What if I told you I have **whispers** “60 rolls of ultra-soft toilet paper”
  18. Since all the public libraries are closed, I’m checking you out instead.
  19. Are you COVID-19 because if I had you near me I wouldn’t leave the house for two weeks straight
  20. That mask brings out the beauty in your eyes.
  21. Wanna get closer than 6 feet?
  22. Girl, are you down with the sickness? Because oh WAH AH AH AH
  23. “Come on over, I’ll pay your fine if you get stopped”
  24. Can’t spell quarantine without u r a q t 😉
  25. “We’re quarantined in the same house, your options are kind of limited.”
  26. Hypothetically speaking, if you were a restaurant who shut down dining-in, would you let me pick you up at the curb? See you tonight?
  27. The government says we need to stay 6 feet away but I want to give you 6 inches. (please don’t use this one)
  28. Can I take you with me and work you from home?
  29. I got a stimulus package that guaranteed to improve your economy.
  30. Our love is like COVID-19. No one saw it coming and we move fast.
  31. Hey baby, you come within 6 feet of here often?
  32. Stay home if you sicc. Come over if you thicc.
  33. Wanna play Coronavirus and get spread on hard surfaces?
  34. Are you looking for a naughty boy? Because I only washed my hands for 19 seconds
  35. Hey baby, are you a latex glove, because I want to put my hand inside you. (Ew. Gross)
  36. Are you coming down with COVID-19? Because I want to flatten your curves.
  37. I like my virus like I like my women; easy to spread. (Again. This one is horrible. Never use it.)

Once again, we wouldn’t recommend dropping these on your super-like, but who knows? Maybe you’ll find a bombshell with a dark sense of humor. Or maybe you’ll get unmatched. Our money’s on the latter.
