A financial consultant in NYC that got "lucky" depending on your point of view. And a guy whose mom has platinum so I utilize it for personal travel because I'd be an idiot not to. I don't charge shit to it, I just use it to get into lounges and upgrades and such.

Hi thanks for calling delta. We’re sorry we had to cancel your flight. The wait time to speak to someone who can help is currently estimated at infinity. Please enjoy this saxophone on a 30 second loop while you wait for the rest of your life with no option for a callback. Wtf is this.

Considering buying a home for the first time. Do I need to stop applying for credit cards 120 days out from the mortgage application (or more)? I spoke with a local mortgage broker and he told me I don't need to stop applying but I don't think he understands credit card travel hacking. I don't want to shoot myself in the foot. I have a credit score in the 800s, no debt, will have a small down payment.

Ever been “leapfrogged” for promotion by someone more junior in your own team? Any advice on coping? Not confirmed/announced yet but I’ve heard it from an inside source. I’ve had nothing but positive feedback all year, they knew I wanted a promotion and had made the right noises about getting one when possible, and I didn’t think this colleague was performing significantly better so hurting pretty bad about it... Trying to keep it in perspective of “at least I still have a job” but this sucks. 🙃
