When drafting a brief or other submissions for court or arbitration, do you use words such as clearly, erroneously, etc. to emphasize certain points? Our managing partner says that we should, but all of the writing guides for litigators that I've read repeats the mantra "show, don't tell" and explain that most judges dread such words. I know that the politically correct thing to do here is to do whatever the managing partner wants me to do, but I just wanted to ask for other ppl's opinion.
Quoted a 30 year mortgage, 5% down for a ~600k home for 4% interest no points. Profile: 250k salary, 800 credit score Is this any good??
I’ll be honest, I am mainly on the bowl for the political discussions because I fear being fired if I were to post publicly. Not that I’m posting crazy things but rather that basic conservative views seem to be so controversial these days. Am I alone on that? Shout out to those on the left who engage in good faith discussions as well cuz those are very much needed between left and right.
I am planning to move to Canada and have to give ielts.. 1) did you all give your ielts that is general training or the academic one.

If you have a negative balance on your credit card (overpay every month) and use it until you go back to zero, do you still earn points/ cash rewards on your usage. Context: I am trying to see if I can essentially use my credit card as a debit card but still earn points at the same time.
Do any of you deal with managers who are 50/50 hands off or hostile? I’m running out of rope dealing with my manager who gets mad when I ask questions/begins attacking points before I finish cont...
Not really points, per session, but I booked leisure travel on AA where I have hardly any status (Gold). The flight is at a time/route where it's reasonable I could be upgraded, but the length is CONT
I recently read an article that talked about paying expenses like mortgage using a credit card (buy pre-paid Visa cards and then play using that) and is a way to get points and improve history. Has anyone tried this? If so, what is your experience?

I'm not a quitter but here's the truth. We can't help companies or people who don't want help, even if they hire us.
Do you all spend much time and money furnishing your apartment? Just moved into a new place and I'm torn. I'm never there but at the same time it'd be nice to have a cozy refuge to come home to.
Ever have one of those days that make you wish you got hit by a bus this morning so you wouldn't have to go through today?
