Nice pens: worth the expense or waste of money?
Do you think I could expense a weekly meal delivery service (it’s precooked - just have to microwave it) during busy season? Would be delivered to the office and is cheaper than ordering in.
Have about $6k in SPY (0.09% expense ration). Does it make sense to sell and switch to VOO (0.03% expense)? Worth the near term capital agains tax for lower expense ratio over long term? Capital gains are about $900 and I’m planning on auto investing every month over the next few years.

I'm pretty sure almost everyone fucks with the expenses. My question : how descriptive are you when you are filling in your expense reports?
To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night. He views them as an investment and an "asset" on the books for his future family. He also has grandparents who had to finance their trip to America by selling their jewels. I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?
Hi PwC CPAs, I recently joined PwC and am in the process of getting a reciprocal license that requires ethics portion. Does PwC reimburse for the AICPA course? It's expensive!
Dear expense report auditors - screw you for asking for receipts for things under $25 (firm policy is you only need receipts for anything $25 and up).
Hey guys. I have a soon to be nonprofit church struggling because they already started services (collecting offerings too against my advice) before things were set with an EIN and they gave an event already planned out and are trying to find a way to spend and collect before the things are in order. They want to know if one of their small business owners can expense and collect then consider it a donation. Is this possible? Any advice or loopholes that are Legal and will avoid issues later on?

Hi everyone, I’m interviewing at Accenture for a UX Design role in the UK, and would love to ask about the process and best practices for it. Many thanks in advance!
I’m back to having no billable work again. My department almost completely dried up when covid started, so I’ve been relying on work from other busy departments at my firm to keep me busy since March. I feel like I start a new job every couple of weeks and am constantly begging for work. I’m just exhausted. Can anyone else relate?

Stop the panic and end the total isolation, says MD & former chief of neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center. Thoughts?
I put in my resignation earlier this week and the district just told me, it will only be approved once someone else hired. I feel like that is silly especially because as of contracting Covid I’m definitely not okay with being back in the classroom. That could be two weeks or three months. I want to cry right now. I can’t stand the education system. Is there a way around this?

Stuck here. Offer A is 5 days a week in office, commute is not too bad, 95k. Offer B is hybrid two days in office, commute sucks, 100k and better benefits. Really great vibes with the entire team at offer A even though the company is a bit old school. Offer B more progressive company, but I 100% felt like I was the back up's backup and they waited for their top picks to reject before my offer. I know for a fact I was Offer A's first choice.
