I’ll be traveling internationally on Delta with 3 pcs of checked luggage (free because I’m platinum) One of them weighs >50lbs. Will they waive the overweight baggage fee if I ask nicely?

What are you thoughts on splitting shared expenses 50/50 or proportionate to income with SO? What if both make over $175k but there is still a significant % delta (30%+)? Mid 20s, bought a condo together (split 50/50) and will likely get engaged soon.

Hi all! I currently live in LA but my wedding next year will be in my hometown of Chicago. I plan to go wedding dress shopping soon in both LA and Chicago. If I find my dream wedding dress in Chicago, I’d like to order it to be shipped to a store in LA so that I can have my fittings throughout the year without having to travel back to Chicago. However this also means I would have to fly to Chicago with my wedding dress. Has anyone been in this situation before? If so, how was the experience?

Submit app on website->computer screens resume->recruiter screens resumes passed on by computer->recruiter phone screens candidates that they like->recruiter passes on candidates they like to hiring manager->hiring manager screens resumes->hiring manager conducts 1st round interviews with candidates that they like Referral skips you directly to recruiter screening step and gives you a higher chance to advance.
