An older couple ahead of me in the upgrade queue just turned down their business class upgrade because they wouldn’t be able to sit together... To love someone more than an upgrade... what a concept

Awwww, you are such a sweet child.
Nobody loves someone more than an upgrade, I’ve seen plenty of couples with only one person got the upgrade, and it’s the attitude and nagging for the rest of trip. So better just avoid it by not taking the upgrades.

When I was managing consulting projects, I told my teams that they should feel free to communicate with me if they had any issues or concerns. However, I also wanted their ideas about what they would do to solve the issue they are raising.

Situations can get "extreme," or small issues may arise when you are in the heat of the moment trying to accomplish your goals. That's normal.

But to change the pattern and prevent Burnout, you need to communicate with an action.

Just started a new job as an LMHC 7 weeks ago. It’s fee for service. Was told during the interview I’d have a full caseload always and have more stable clients. However, I’ve been getting at least 1 no show/cancel per day and found out that I don’t get paid for it unless the client pays. Now with these no show / late cancels, I have less clients and no new intakes are being put in my schedule even though I’ve alerted the intake dept several times. Is it bad I want to leave already?
