What is the expense policy for meals while traveling? This is what I see online but it doesnt seem to provide anything besides “reasonable”. Is the policy really that lax?

Im probably overthinking this but traveling to Hawaii from LAX and want to make sure because it’s been surprisingly hard to find a concrete answer online. I know that proof of vaccination is sufficient to avoid testing/quarantine going there. But what about coming back? Will I need to do any testing/quarantine or is proof of vaccination enough? I know Hawaii is a US state but is it considered domestic or international travel with regards to covid? Since requirements keep changing I’m confused

I recognize that I’ve performed very well and garnered the recognition of many teammates while being able to maintain a fairly regular 8:30/9—4:30/5 schedule, but rather than be grateful for such an opportunity I can’t help but feel as though (1) I’ve been extremely lucky; and (2) I definitely should not feel like I’ll be able to continue experiencing such a (relatively speaking) lax setup.

Serious question here: Does anyone actually really enjoy consulting? I just moved to Big Tech and I can’t believe I stayed that long in consulting. Better WLB, waaaaaaaaaaayy better pay, challenging work environment, some company proves to have just as good of career growth opportunity, smart yet lax colleague. What is it? The prestige? The travel (obviously not now)? Am I missing out on anything that I just fail to see?

I can’t sit around and teach him these basic things, though. His attitude is too lax as well. I asked him to fix the excel, and he was like, he’ll send it tomorrow.

Our district is so lax on the students this year. With tech issues and distance learning days, we’ve gone from accommodating to enabling real quick. No penalties for late work, taking excuses for attendance, lower academic and behavioral standards... We were beginning to make so much progress on transforming our school culture, but this year is erasing that and then some. Is anyone else concerned about how to raise the expectations and students’ self-discipline back to pre-enabling levels?

Covid question - I work for a small firm (7 lawyers, 4 staff) and do estate planning and probate. They stopped WFH in May, and my office’s Covid policies have been... lax. No masks, half the office has gotten it, I’ve had to self isolate because of work exposures, etc. Now they want to go back to having clients in the office for estate planning meetings instead of zoom. I don’t feel comfortable being in an hour long meeting with people outside my household - do I bother saying anything?

Extended family (live in the same neighborhood) wont stop "popping by" like once a week. They do not take COVID seriously and on top of that, they recently started sending their kids to school in-person. Parents get defensive with me and fall under the pressure of actually letting them inside the house (not garage or backyard) so that they dont offend the relatives. The relatives wear masks but they start getting lax (take it off or keep their nose exposed)...cont.
