Be careful of the IP Route command on a Switch Pt. II

As I was making a frozen pizza (don't laugh!) it hit me that I believe the reason I couldn't ping any of the other VLAN's was because the ip route command turned my switch into a L3 capable device. I didn't tell my switch how to get to the other subnets via a static route/dynamic route since it was now basically a router as well. It could reach the router still because it was on the same subnet /24.

I didn't have time to test this theory but I'm 90% positive this was the issue!
