How long is your Thursday commute and what industry is your client in? I leave my client site (in manufacturing) at 1:30PM CT and get to my apartment in NYC at 9:30PM ET if I’m lucky

I’m oddly enough on a project, just not a whole lot going on while the client figured their shit out

What is this? You leave at 1:30?! Working half days?

funny

M is joking

Was leaving at 1.30-2 PM on one project and got some looks. So, 2.30-3 PM now. I reach at 9.30 pm if I’m lucky. I feel like it’s a battle every Monday and Thursday. But the bonus on Thursday I’m going to be home 🙌.

I fly home on Wednesdays after work hours so I have a full Thursday and Friday at home.

To all you leaving mid afternoon and still getting home at 9:30... are you traveling cross country? I think im gonna stop bitching about my comparatively easy travel commute now 😳

A2 hahahaha yeah you are right... I live near an airport that tends to have limited direct flights (at least to where I’m going). My Thursday commute used to always involve me leaving the client site around 3 and still not getting home until 11 at the earliest.

like

Leave site at 2:00, fly at 3:30, get home around 8.

I leave my client site at roughly 12p and get to my apartment at about 11:30p

I work east coast and commute back to mtn time. Flight leaves at 6:30 (we’ve left at that time once) land at 8:30 mtn theoretically. It’s about 30 minutes out of the airport and 45 minutes home. Best case I get home a little before 10pm and wake up at 6:15 to start work on Friday. I’m exhausted

I was doing this last year. Work east coast time but do 3.5 hour flights back to south.. stress got me to a surgery. Take care!

Only direct flight for me leaves the city at 1250pm so you know I get to leave client site at 1030 lol and it’s cross country so get home at 930 pm

Hypothetical...

Imagine a potential client takes a new job in a new firm in a new city. Through no fault of his own, he suffers a few health and personal setbacks, which the firm is aware of. In the midst of it all, the firm unilateterally and substantially changes the terms of his employment (with significant implications to his compensation, obviously to the firm's benefit) and then starts to put the pieces in motion to fire him for cause.
