There is never a 99 dollar seat when you need it...the minimum is going to be 200 and you have to take off from the west piers. From union square to jfk, ubers or junos are 55 to 60...so It's hard to rationalize

I had it all planned out to use blade to go to JFK. through the promo pricing and it was like $150 all in for a 5 minute flight during rush hour. I was super excited and took my time in Manhattan. It rained in the one hour time slot that was my flight was to take place. Cancelled. Ended up stuck in an uber for 1.5 hours with a $150 fare. Missed my flight too.

Advice: my firm incentivized associates to get licensed in fed courts - 4 fed courts for a 5k raise. They also covered the admission fee.

I didn’t plan on moving to another firm; the new firm sought me out and made me an offer - the process happened so fast. I want to be professional about this.

Hey fishes,
A dilemma regarding charging onetime flight ticket expense in DTE under Hybrid commuting allowance:

My Indigo invoice (with GST no.) shows 7k, but I actually had to pay 6k for it (After MMT discount, have receipt of this. Not a GST bill tho).

Which amount should I charge? If they dont want bank statement then I can charge 7k, but if they raise any issue I'll land in trouble.
