What have y'all done with cards after you got the sign-up bonus, but it just wasn't worth spending more on the card? A few months ago, I cancelled my Marriot Bonvoy card because Bonvoy points are worthless compared to airline points on other cards. Any reason I should have kept it?

Question? I just stayed at Westin Georgetown. Used self parking, paid 48$. I got home and got a bill for 56$ for each night of parking: i called the Westin Georgetown 4 times but each time i end up in a foreign country and get hung up on. Any thoughts how to get money back or get a hold of actual hotel? The phone number leads to a series of handoffs. Thank you.

How much actual work do people do each day? I’ve seen the anecdotal study out there that the average worker only does something like 2.3 hours of work per 8 hour day. I’m just curious if other people experience something like this? I’m in a slow period lately and it’s sometimes difficult to process the down time. It’s a different kind of stress from having to meet your daily billable goals, that’s for sure.
