I appreciate that you sent the deck out last week with the meeting invite, and I apologize for being late to this call, but can we walk through it from the top, quickly? And maybe you can take my edits in real-time? Great. Yeah this looks really good... we just need a little rearranging and reframing.

Oh my god. This thread totally made my year! Soo hilarious! 🤣🤣🤣

*chit chat till call starts*
Consultant: So what floor do you guys sit on? 14? Oh, I’m 15! We should start meeting in person! So much easier and better.
Client: Yes absolutely, let’s do that. Except I work from home instead of the 8 min commute. And only 10am to 4pm with an hour and half lunch *beep* hi, who just joined?
—reread this whole thread—
Consultant - books calls virtually for all eternity and never meets face to face because client has work life balance. Does weekly expense reports for $800 flight, $1200 hotel to sit in a conf room and take conf calls. Gets Zero bonus

Whoever just joined, can you please go on mute? There’s a lot of background noise.

HSA question: left my employer and had an HSA at PayFlex that required me to hold 1k in cash before I could invest anything else. I’ve heard that Fidelity offers an HSA and research says theirs is one of the best. Can anyone with a fidelity HSA confirm if i have to keep 1k in cash or could I invest it all? Thinking of converting if I can get that extra 1k invested instead of sitting in cash. Open to other options too!
