Hi! For US citizens traveling back tonUS from Canada, what type of COVID testing is done and where can it be taken from? When can we do the booking and how long before the flight should we take the test?
I often use corporate rates for personal travel and in a sample size of 20 hotels across Hyatt and Marriott, I’ve only been asked for my work badge once at a Courtyard (or possibly Fairfield). I’m leaving my firm soon, but tempted to continue to use the corporate rate after I leave since they so infrequently check. Has anyone had any experience with this?
Anyone have experience using MS Teams chat over Southwest in-flight Wi-Fi? Not planning on being “that person” attending a meeting on a plane, just responding to any MS Teams chats that come my way so I don’t have to take PTO.
When you went to the drive-thru at Sonic for the first time in years for a 50 cent corn dog only to have your credit card info stolen... Cruel world we live in.
Legit question: now that 90% of you all don’t have an expense account or travel, why are you doing consulting? Wlb and pay are shit, professional dev opps are good but can be developed in 2-3 years - so why not leave after
That time you had to book a flight last min, get the middle seat in row 25... and then end up deplaning from the back 💯 May this travel week be equally blessed!
Just had a performance review with my SM while drinking Jack and Cokes in the Delta lounge... As God intended it to be.

Volunteered for taking a later flight home for a $600 gift card. I was planning on working anyway tonight so atleast I'm getting paid for the overtime now.
Is it normal for you to ever be “ghosted” by your administration? I feel like I’m constantly emailing, calling, texting, and meeting with them and nothing gets done. As soon as I leave their office, I’m ignored. If I email/text them a question or request, I’m ignored unless it benefits them. This is at a district where I travel between 3 schools and have 3 principals. They’re all like this and communication is especially important since I have to travel.
Few things better than a Friday when you can just roll out of bed and walk two steps to the hotel desk to work, while I wait for room service bacon and waffles!
For utilization, if the denominator is fixed to 2080 (40 x 52), there is no way you can be a 100% utilized even if you're staffed throughout the year and bill 8 hours per business day?
Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
Recently transitioned to a startup and my confidence has skyrocketed. Presenting, interviewing, making my point heard are SO much easier when I’m working with colleagues and not clients who I feel don’t want me there. For those who struggle with confidence, there is hope!
