Not wanting to be excluded, British Airways now getting in on the Customer Service Excellence awards..... contemplating taking an Ox Cart to work next week....
Gold on Delta and got an e-mail that I was upgraded to Comfort+. But there are 2 seats open in First. Why was I not upgraded straight to First?
Better to transfer AmEx reward points to Delta (1:1), SPG(1:0.33) or FlyingBlue(1:1.2)?
Don't even behave an account with FlyingBlue but there is an ongoing promotion on AmEx hence the qtn.
Saw the other day Marriott gave me lifetime gold status.... 2 years and 103 nights early. Anyone else have that happen?

Watching people go to Google.com to search when I repeatedly tell them they can search from a browser location bar.
No concept of alt tab / command tab to switch between applications.
Don't know what shell tab completion is.

What's the Alternative Weekend Travel policy at other firms? i.e. - When traveling for multi-week assignments, how can you get the firm to pay for weekend travel to a 3rd location and back?
Is getting a suit pressed less wear than actually getting it dry cleaned? Need to keep them looking crisp but the travel obviously keeps getting them creased up and don’t want to over dry clean them.

How much should you tip your butler in the Maldives? I would love to hear what other people provide
Last time I was in the Maldives for 3.5 days and 3 nights, and left a $120 tipfor our butler at Anatara Dhigu. I will be staying at the St. Regis or Ritz for 12 days, and I am thinking $30-50 per day would suffice as a tip to provide to our butler at the end of our trip.
