Is coast to coast travel worth it if the client is cool and you are still young (e.g no kids)?
Which hotel chains have the fluffy duvets and foam mattresses? Not getting good sleep the so called heavenly beds 😒
Consultants are those magical creatures that can travel and work for 14-18 hours straight but somehow will still go out with their team to dinner, drinks, and probably more drinks. I like consulting

Now you can have your very own airline bar cart.
I bought Lufthansa bulkhead seats which are actually listed as preferred seats on the 747-8. The picture shows that the seats I bought were bulkhead by definition, even if they weren’t priced that way. They changed the aircraft to an A340-300 (very sad). Now they want to charge me more for bulkhead seats. Odds this works? I’m thinking 1/100.
PS there is more to the email about how I select seats for each aircraft methodically, would’ve never bought preferred seats for the A340, yada yada yada

Woman next to me is invading my space bc she is bundled up in a huge blanket, has a giant pillow, and is in the middle seat. It's a just a 90 min flight girl, no need to bring your bed with you.
Have 350k Amex points and 120k Chase, extremely burnt out, haven’t traveled outside the US since before covid and thinking about quitting and doing a RTW. I have one world ruby but that doesn’t get much except baggage and extra legroom. Don’t need business but would spend the extra miles on it if it doesn’t add crazy much in fees. Any tips on places that are exciting but cheap to stay at, routes to keep fees down or general RTW airlines to go with or tips would be appreciated.

What are standard turnarounds from final round interview to offer? For context- Had final rounds for two roles this week- first on Tuesday for a publisher side role, second agency side yesterday. Both recruiters sent quick notes post interviews saying I should expect an update ASAP.
How to train your spouse to “complete the task”? I’ve been with my husband for 8 years and we recently had a baby. Maybe it’s the postpartum hormone but I find it increasingly unbearable that every time he does chores, it is never to its 100% completion. E.g. he would take the dirty clothes through washer and dryer but leave them there to wrinkle. He would put away clean dishes but leave all the cabinet doors open. He would bathe the baby but leave a whole trail of mess. Any tips?
Is anyone interested in a role at Crowe? Good WLB for consulting and a lot of opportunities for growth and professional development. Happy to chat/provide referral if needed (also tryna cop a referral bonus to be fully transparent)
Sorry for the barrage of posts, but this one is worth telling. Couple months ago, I found a gator hanging in my pond. I live next to a swamp so it’s not uncommon to have one wander through occasionally. This one was a little too big for my liking though. I have 3 dogs so I was worried Wally might try to eat one of them. I’m not fond of jail so I did the right thing and called a game warden to get a nuisance tag. Took 2 weeks to get it and by that time, Wally was nowhere to be found. Cont.

Toxic environment to work in. Most that I work with are petty and fake af, talking behind your back. And EY wonders why we’re short staffed on all levels 🤷♂️ I’m out the door as soon as 10/15 hits
Has anyone taken the “fast money” route to FIRE (e.g., investing in risky stocks for fast short-term growth) or are most people saving, investing, and holding for the long haul? A lot of my friends and family are jumping into the market as a “get rich quick” scheme from what I can see.
