Can you use Marriott free nights on a 5th night free stay? When I try to book online, it always applies the first free night certificate to the night that's actually free (5th night), negating the purpose.

Thinking outside the box: need H1B renewal stamping, eligible for Dropbox in my home country. However, going there is still risky in case of a 221g and consulates closed. Can I send my passport to my home country through a friend for Dropbox stamping? Once the stamping is done, I can travel to home country (after they courier my passport back) Is this possible or am I going crazy?

Been friends w/ a girl for years since I met her overseas (chatting on phone often). When we started travelling together on a few trips, she annoyed me on so many levels, we are just not compatible so I no longer want to travel with her. I still value our friendship and don't mind continuing catching up on the phone. I'm non-confrontational so instead telling her i find her difficult/annoying, I just stopped inviting her/avoid trips/added a lil more distance. But she doesn't get it..-contd
Just curious, what have people used the Marriott Ambassador Service for? Wanted to know if there were things I'm missing out on :p

Is agency culture relatively the same across the country? Are agencies in smaller markets a little more chill (better work life balance, less chaos, etc.)? I'm getting a little burnt out and I'm not sure if it's a NYC thing or an advertising thing.
Advice on how to encourage more from a team member that does the bare minimum? They often aren’t very responsive online and a simple task will go on for days with little improvement. This is an individual I’m managing from another consulting firm, so the dynamic is different than your typical team.. so I’m not totally sure if it’s even in my wheelhouse to reprimand when it’s warranted. For weeks now I’ve been picking up the slack. My personality is not to be a hard-ass Manager. Help!

I am a background check away from putting in my notice. KEEP grinding if you’re miserable and/or have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. This took a lot of ghosting and interviews+offer letters being taken off the table due to COVID. Stay humble and you’ll be next. Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.
