Hate when I'm the last to not get upgraded on a flight. Seriously most frustrating experience.

Same, it almost makes me want to track down the others that got upgraded and sabotage one of them to get their seat

Could be waiting on standby for a flight and not get it?

I could think of a few other more frustrating things in life.

As people board with the economy passes their names are taken off the list. So many times it may appear you were "the first person to not be upgraded" but in reality your just "the first person to not be upgraded who is still not boarded".
Nonetheless, it can be frustrating.

Met a guy on Grindr who was visiting my city for the week. We had dinner Friday night. Met up again Sat afternoon and spent a full 24 hours together.

I acknowledge jumping to anything more serious than travel buddies would be challenging and unlikely given the distance. Thoughts?

Have you ever changed your mind a week after turning down the job offer? It’s so hard when you’ve got small children getting sick all the time and you want to start fresh with no PTO.

But I just called their HR Dept to ask if the job is still available. They just signed a contract with a temp agency. However, they’re looking into reversing it and will let me know.
Where would I go from here??? I’d essentially be giving my boss less than a week’s notice. And I look flippant. :(
