How do y'all book vacation plans before knowing where you'll be that week? Want to book July 4th tickets but don't want to if I can flex for free/have to fly direct from client

Use Southwest Airlines so you can lock it in, but cancel without penalty, if needed.

Good advice but my destination doesn't have direct southwest :(

Don't fly direct? Or pay a change fee or buy last minute.

I suck it up and book them regardless of location. I will fly him Wed night, leave Friday for a family thing for a few days then head to napa over the 4th from my family's place in Canada.

Following. Just had to cancel a trip to Seattle because of a new project I rolled onto.

Just get the flight on points then change it if y'all need too.

Points are transferable?

My manager is a woman, and she is always commenting on how I look in front of everyone - and it just gets so weird. Ex: on Zoom calls with everyone, she’ll call attention to my outfit, or to my extensions, or to my make up when it REALLY ISNT THAT BAD! Plus we Zoom with all other guys so it’s like UGH stop making it weird. And it’s never a straight forward compliment - it’ll be like “Hey arent you cold in that shirt?” *attention is automatically on my shirt”.CONT.
