Birthday gift ideas for a new mom with a month old newborn? Not in the same city as her and I don’t think she’ll want any experience-type gifts with COVID still ongoing
It’s taken over a year of looking but after being passed over for promotion at my current agency and having to do the work of two people for six months due to covid, I just got an offer to move to a better agency with a promotion and a nearly 50% raise. 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳
Thinking of dropping my United Club card. Use it primarily for lounge access, but I also have a Corp Amex Platinum card which gets me into Centurion and partner lounges. Contd...
Delta announced that they’re fining unvaccinated employees $200 a month. Probably easier to just mandate vaccines for anyone who flies on their airline, but this is a good step.
Flight attendant saw my nip of Makers and threw it away without asking. Claimed it was a violation of federal regulations. He’s full of it and just salt i didn’t buy from them- how many points?

Last swallow of beer before getting up for 0600 flight getting chased with Advil and a sleeping pill. YOLO. (To be clear I didn't drink enough to mess with sleeping pill.)
When do you think we’ll start traveling and do you think COVID-19 will change the way our industry works?
All these early morning flight posts got me feeling some type of way. Another bench week, sweet dreams ladies and gents 🙏
What is the best platform to buy crypto? Only interested in the big guys (BTC, ETH, etc.) Have been hearing Coinbase Pro. Any downside of that? I also heard crypto.com because they allow credit card purchases. Any advice? Brand new to crypto investing. Plan to buy & hold rather than trade. Thanks!
Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂

I'm desperately craving to get on an airplane and check into a Marriott indistinguishable from the million I have stayed in before and snack on tiny food in a lounge with average wine and then go have dinner by myself in a nice restaurant, then go back to my room & put the TV on in the background as I sit on the bed and spend way too long on a PowerPoint slide no one is really going to look at, safe in the knowledge that not only is all of it paid for, I'm also actually getting paid to do this.
Lady 🐠 - What's S&'s maternity leave policy? Do you get the option to skip CRT? Does it play against you on any way?
Biggest fake health foods that people eat (esp. regarding weight loss?) A few: nuts, granola... what else?
I have so much mom guilt sending my baby to daycare. She’s 6 months old. The transition has been harder on me than her (she seems fine and happy, just isn’t sleeping well there yet) but I wonder if I should try and find a different solution. Part time nanny, part time daycare? We can’t afford a nanny full time. If I’m WFH and we have a nanny part time is it realistic that I’d see her during the day or am I kidding myself?

Why shouldn’t same standards apply if you threaten to resign - irrespective of your race or gender or the type of research you do. Pretty sure I’d get fired if I used “threaten to resign” as my mode to get something
