My dad is a bit financially strict (borderline financially abusive) to my mom, so I want to set up a way to give her allowance money regularly on the DL. Would this be best done by setting up a credit card account for her? Or a separate checking account to which I deposit money every month? How would you do it? TIA!

Is vaccine discrimination lurking at Kearney MEA? The company said that it won't be mandating vaccines. But a recent email from HR asked for every employee's vaccination status. Should unvaccinated consultants fear discrimination (can't travel, won't be staffed, will have low utilization, will be at risk)? Honest question for an open debate
Did American Airlines really have the nerve to offer me magazines for my miles? In 2016? Magazines, paper magazines, for my miles??? REALLY?!
Delta announced that they’re fining unvaccinated employees $200 a month. Probably easier to just mandate vaccines for anyone who flies on their airline, but this is a good step.
Anyone fly united airlines recently?

I’m an incoming AC1 at Bain and I have spent the summer studying a bit for the GMAT since we had a stipend. I took it with no practice and received a 640. After studying on an off for a couple of months I received a 690. I’m likely going to cancel the score since I realize it isn’t enough for M7. To provide some more insight on my profile. I graduated undergrad from UofM BBA Magna Cum Laude, have interned in Big 4 consulting, IB, and VC, and I’m an Asian-American. What should I do?
Saw an email coming for EY reopening the India offices from October 4th, but professionals to WFH till December. I hope they never make it mandatory for people to work from office. I stay outside of the office location cities and would never want to relocate.

A year into a promotion without a raise to match. I've tried everything short of going full-Karen on HR. Other than the principle of the matter, I don't want to leave. Has anyone else has success navigating this BS? Is anyone else still hearing Covid as an excuse to raise freezes?
