Did anyone travel to Mexico for L1B visa interview. Can you share your experience, which city and any challenges
I'm a co-founder of a midwest travel tech startup focused on allowing you to plan travel faster, easier, cheaper . . better. We're running a little incentive/hack for booking your first trip through Tempore, this could either be in the form of flights, hotel, or rental car. Plus we have access to proprietary discounts and concierge support.
The last 18+months have been extremely challenging as a travel startup, and would truly value the support/opportunity (no fees whatsoever). Link below!
Let’s say you fly cross country for a court hearing… is the plane travel time billable? What’s standard practice? I was working on the case some of that time but not all that time. Obviously do not double bill… but just curious what others standard practice is for billing time consuming travel ? And if so, what part do you bill? From arrival at airport (ie arrive 1.5 hr early go through security) until landing? I will ask my boss but I need to get some draft time entries in for now
Boarded a flight and then the entire plane deplaned due to "security issue" - reboarded an hour later but will miss my connection causing a 6 hour delay to my destination. Points? Or an airport issue?
What are the best places in the city to catch Premier League matches? (Bonus points if you're a United fan!)
What can I do if I have a free hotel night that’s about to expire but I won’t be able to use it?
Two of my last three hotel stays have had incorrect charges added. I was able to get both resolved by calling and being polite but is this common or was I just unlucky?
The first we were given someone else's restaurant/bar charges. The second we were given a random fee for using a reward night that apparently was supposed to be billed to corporate but was instead accidentally billed to my card.
I'd like to think these were honest mistakes but then again how many people would blindly pay it?

Hello -travelling to client site for the first time, few questions as a manager: 1. What’s my max per diem for meals? 2. I am travelling on Sunday - hoping I can charge meals on Sunday as well? 3. I decided to stay the weekend as I had to travel back again on Monday - can I charge the hotel during weekend? Since I will be avoiding the full flight cost which is huge?

Hi all- has anyone had experience applying for a first time credit card? I've been living in New York for 5 years and just moved back so have zero credit history in London. I've used a few of the online sites that let you test the waters on how likely you are to be accepted for each card and the results are pretty bad...Are there any cards you recommend to help build credit? Work arounds?

"Evaluation In Progress" what is this mean in TCS. Got mail to upload the documents and current status "Evaluation In Progress". Other side I see Intervew Process as " Prepare Better Learn more about the..." see the screen shot.
Finally what all this mean ?
My company are still facing delays with doors, particularly a specific door that there's none in UK at moment. Anyway 1 customer has been calling in for updates regularly (loveley lady and very understanding, door is for her sons bedroom) called my sales guy today, advised she might need to look at other doors as her sons turned 13 today and will be wanting to have a ham shank in his room and it's something she'd rather not witness 😀. I couldn't believe it he was mortified haha
Someone came in and ordered 60 bacon double cheeseburgers… my crew thought I was kidding. 😅
Once when I was waiting tables, I had a guy pay me cash. The change was 45 cents, which I didn't give back to him because like who wants that. He then asked where the change was, and when I explained that I didn't give back the loose change, he made a big stink about how dollars and cents matter and didn't leave me a tip. He was a republican staffer on capitol hill.
I had customers tell me how amazing the salads I make for them. It’s great that I can make salads that good!
How a company hire you as a year round guest experience manager when they know they will close for the winter season and then all the sudden they eliminate your position a month before bonus should be distributed because they realized they don’t need a year round manager for this 🤨
At a different job I had a customer trying to swindle me in telling me that there was a deal in an item that never had a deal or promotion for sale so he made me scan the item 20 times before believing me. Obviously, he finally let it go but I scan it with an inventory scanner that showed me all of the sale price promotions if there were any
Last week some guy ordered 60 chicken nuggets and just sat in the restaurant and ate the entire thing
A Quote from a Crazy Rich Customers:
Scene: <me attempting to connect the guest to an in-store associate>
me: “I apologize, Sir, unfortunately there-
customer: “I’m going to stop you right there.”
customer: “Do you know where you work? You work for Neiman Marcus. ‘Unfortunately’ should not be a part of your vocabulary. Save that kind of talk for people who shop at Macy’s. There’s a better way to say what you’re saying.”
Dude then had me try EVERY extension in the store directory
Back when I was getting started in the food world, I worked flipping burgers at In-n-Out. A man came in and said the burgers he had gotten weren’t right. He dumped the food on the counter and then he started throwing them back behind the counter. We gave him a refund and then his demeanor completely changed. He was calmer and he told us to have a great day as he left us to clean up the mess he made.
Customer : you should be getting on your hands and knees like a dog to beg for my business
Manager : sorry for my front desk upsetting you well comp your 90 minute session
Me : gets coached for not breaking policy and giving the lady a massage that’s positive for covid so I told her to rebook
