I've taken roughly 160 flights over the last two years and only twice have I sat next to someone I would classify as "stunning". Went on a date with one and the other was married. So basically, worse than 0.625%. All it takes is one though! 😉

Not high enough.

@D2: No, you don't - this isn't a market sizing question, agree with A1. You need to draw inferences on what "any given flight" means, and what the relative proportion is of the people on "any of those flights".

Thanks SA 1. Guys and gals, was just trying to make a joke on a Friday. Don't take things so seriously😉

It's a probability question.

@A1: Gotta size the market to know the odds...

Hi everyone, looking for some resume feedback. I am looking to pivot into people-centered roles such as employee relations, diversity&inclusion, employee experience, and project management. i have experience in all these areas, and have 10+ years of overall customer service experience,6 of which are professional experience. I have applied for positions over the last 3 months that I feel I am overly qualified for with no interviews. Is it my resume? It also translates to slightly more than 1 page

Even though I don’t and it’s a contract position.

Does anyone have any suggestions about places where you can stay without the hassle/expectation to be tipping everyone all the time?

I hate having to give tips for everything when I'm on vacation. I don't want to be carrying cash around. In fact, I don't even want to be thinking about it. I just want to relax!

To be clear, this isn't about the money. It's about the hassle. I'd just rather pay an upfront gratuity fee that covers all of tips for the entire stay.
