CLT drinks tommorow?
Open forum to share today’s successes, failures, chaos & support. See below: I’ll say it. I am sick of ppl ruining my day. i wish everyone was a bit more understanding when it comes to unforeseen problems & road blocks. ESPECIALLY when it comes delivery. I know we are all on edge rn- how could we not be? but I’ve had it with how rude and inhumane people are being to each other right now. I’m just trying to help. Why can’t we all be more flexible? (like their expected delivery date lmao)
You are getting rolled off next week and u know it today !! Not your fault just client.. 💩💩💩💩 so next week onwards hunt begins!
Health care is being rationed in several states. This is getting serious. This is definitely worth learning more about as hospital refuse critically ill patients who do not have covid. Emergency rooms are literally flooded, critically ill pts (w covid) wait hours on end in their car to get in to see a doctor.

for people whose parents might be visiting from India to the States, would you recommend any particular travel and/or medical insurance?
Also concerned about lifetime. I'm hoping they stick with Marriott's lifetime requirement and carry over SPG nights
Junior cap markets associate at a V25 and I'm on track this month to bill 280+ hrs at my current rate and more in October. I'm miserable doing deal work with a group I have shown zero interest in from day 1, but the group I am interested in has been slow over the summer. I dream of going in-house as a mid-level at a non-bank. What are some firms that do company work, i.e., have client companies and do general corporate work for them? Bonus points if tech or energy industry clients!
No one acknowledged my new stapler in the office so far. I'd like a new project please.
Dont do a lot of insurance but have clients that would like me to do theirs. I tend be in buy term for insurance, and use investment vehicles for wealth growth. What's the use for permanent insurance?
Kudos to BBDO for their suuuper fun app letting staff brand home offices as “BBDO branches”￼...AFTER BEING LIKE THE LAST AGENCY TO ADOPT WFH & MAKING EMPLOYEES COME IN WELL AFTER IT WAS CLEARLY UNSAFE

Going to Honolulu the week before July 4th. Looking at rental cars and every single company I've looked at (Avis, Budget, Enterprise, National) shows no availability?? Will things open up as time gets closer or am out of luck
I'm actually glad my connection through DTW is late. It gives me time to grab a pizza at Bigalora... seriously one of the best pizzas I've ever had. Maybe I'm weird?
