Some of those "average" and "stupid" Americans happen to be employees like yourself just trying to make a living and contribute. Grow up.

Being "good" at the airport is a function of money / privilege / access. Be thankful that you have those things. Empathy will take you far in this world. (Pre check helps too.)

The pandemic has been a blessing in disguise for me because I've managed to move from a miserable in-house gig to a big city agency where I truly belong. It's permanently remote at an awesome company so we've decided to design our lives and move our family to Antigua on their digital nomad visa, which allows us to live there for two years as remote workers. Has anyone else taken advantage of the digital nomad visa programs available in much of the Caribbean? Would love to hear about it if so!

Started a new engagement and my manager is extremely introverted. I personally don't mind it, but my junior team members have raised it with me that it is a challenging during team meetings/status and review note updates/team lunches for them.

I wanted to know if anyone has had a similar situation and have any actionable ideas on how to smooth things out with the whole team? I usually try to make my engagements efficient, supportive and fun. Or should I just forget about it?
