Flying out of BOS this morning with a friend and were both asked to put our bags in the sizer before security. I have an Alpha 2 and he has a really common Briggs model. Is AA regularly policing bags?

Yes the fellow in BOS terminal B is a stickler.

I think it's less about more money for AA and more about them wanting to improve their on time statistics, and reducing the number of last minute bags being checked is one of many subtle (and usually annoying) things I've noticed they do to reduce the possibility of boarding delays. Other airlines like Delta have better on time stats and don't do stuff like that though. So it just makes me annoyed.

Heading to the slopes today! This Tag is my favorite sport watch. Not the most expensive piece I’ve got, but is perfect for what it does. Adjustable band fits around the inside liner of my ski jacket. Technically, it is a diving watch, and I actually prefer it to my Sea Sweller for that too. The matte black color doesn’t attract fish and other sea creatures like shiny watches do!

This general strike talk has really got me re-evaluating my whole career. I can’t complain about compensation, I’m paid well, I have benefits, and I have a roof over my head. But the work life balance and unsustainable productivity expectations that have been created by agencies that won’t say no to clients needs to change. We place/create ads to turn millionaires into billionaires while we’re treated terribly. Something’s gotta give. I don’t know a single person who isn’t burnt out right now

Hi there. Earlier this year I laid out a business case for why I should get a raise & I asked for a $20-25k annual raise. I got $15k. I found out another person also asked for a raise around the same time. He didn’t give a business case, he just asked;he got the full amount he asked for ($70k). He is more senior than me, has been there longer, & we are not in the same function. However, something is just not sitting right with me about this situation. Any thoughts? Am I just over-analyzing?
