Was in fuck it mode. Packed at 545 AM with flight at 730 AM really thought about just staying home.
8 o'clock meeting in the client site, caught an early flight and planned to get some sleep on the flight. The fucking baby next to me started crying his lungs out. FML.
If you hook up your social media to your marriott account, you can get some free points. Also, if you answer their twitter questions, more points! Happy Sunday!!
It's 20 degrees outside and the thermostat in my room slowly decreases its set temperature until the pipes freeze. Fuck you Marriott, at least give me a real blanket and not this paper-thin cotton BS
On alt travel. Haven't seen my driver's license since 10 hours ago when I left Enterprise (>200 miles away) with my rental car... fuck
Well, fuck this travel day. #ATLhoe
I'm going to quit not because the job is hard or travel demanding (though it is), but because partner keeps on wanting a higher N on this survey and it is NOT SOMETHING I CAN FUCKING CONTROL. Ugh.
Had THE best hook up last night. 💯 Any other 🐠 use project travel for "extracurricular activities"?
Cancelled my marriott credit card.. too many cards and opened it for the bonus. What card would you guys recommend now? Looking for one that is not overly expensive and has good bonus. I have CSR btw
I travel M-Th. If I get an automatic food dispenser device, do you guys think I can leave a puppy alone for 4 days a week? Usually back by 5-6 pm on Thursdays and really want a puppy
Can anyone share some Insight into Deloitte FDD ? There is hardly any discussion on here or Reddit. What kind of clients work with ? BB? National practice or local ? Travel ? Anything is appreciated
Anyone deal with a SO that has to travel a lot for work during the weekends? Dating this guy I really like but he travels a lot on the weekends for his career. It's hard that I barely see him.
Gotta love messed up Sunday work travel. Fml 🤦
Dog owners: any thoughts on how to accommodate a new puppy into the consulting lifestyle (about me: I don’t travel, have a SO that works less than me to share responsibility with but they cannot WFH)
It finally happened. I left my iPad on a plane. Have a 6+ hour flight on Sunday. FML. Anyone have success getting a lost item back?
I’m thinking of getting a dog (not a super young puppy, probably at least a year or two old). Was hoping to get some advice. I generally WFH but go into the office a few times a month and probably travel a week every two months. What are the good options to make sure my pet is taken care of if I have no local family or friends to look after them?
End of year travel stats? 130k on United 50k on southwest 105 SPG nights 25 Marriott nights Cheers to 2018!
Staying at a hotel. I’ve never experienced so much racial discrimination until now. Unless you’re white, the staff will give 0 shits about you.
What’s the current availability for the Tudor Black Bay 58 in black? Are they generally available at ADs or am I looking at a wait? Is MSRP the price, or are discounts likely?
any recommendations on a local mover? also, for those of you who have recently moved, how much did it cost? please include number of bedrooms or sqft for reference
My company won't give my designer the art director title she deserves because of the association of the word "director". I've explained to them an AD isn't a director level job like a CD is, but they're just so hung up on the word that they're not budging, saying that her having a title with the word "director" would be confusing for some. FML. But, they've said I could give her any manager level title she wants. What title would you suggest that aligns to AD that I can give her?
I’m at a crossroads, thinking about either selling my condo and using the equity + some cash for a down payment on a house. Or using the cash to invest in a rental property in a lower cost of living area with the sole intent to build equity & sell when I retire. Leaning on rental property but seeking advice... cont’d
I love what I do, and I adore my exec. However, I fear I may be underpaid. Would any of you mind sharing your salary + years of experience? I know I have a great job, but I wonder if I should be looking elsewhere to be paid appropriately?

I told myself that no matter what, this is gonna be the year I accomplish my goals. 3 weeks in and I'm still going strong! Went from being a couch potato to working out on an avg of 70 mins a day
Just found out I’m pregnant with our second — happened way faster than the first time around so still in shock, but getting excited. Starting to worry about all the “2 under 2” things But of all the things that freak me out the most about this pregnancy is that It means I’m stuck in this job 😭 I am so unmotivated and was just getting energy to maybe start looking, but no way I could give up 6 months of leave.
Do you have and/or use more technical skills or languagws in your day to day? SQL, R, Python, etc.
Where would you move (within the US) if you could move anywhere? And why there? Currently in NY, lease is up soon, working remotely forever. Never lived anywhere else in the US. I love nature, animals..snorkeling, horseback riding, working out gives me life.
Genuinely confused as to why so many state and local governments are dropping all covid safety measures. Things have been trending downward, and that’s great, but almost the entire country is still at high community transmission levels. I don’t understand the metric they are using to gauge things all of a sudden.
Black sheep here: I am seeing most people here are ambitious in career and always challenge to get the next high paying role (which I genuinely respect). Me here is content with my pay (~ TC 200k) and just trying to look for a stable exit to enjoy life and not even minding a bit of pay cut. Am I the only one…?
Best cashback credit cards in the UAE?
One thing that annoys me about dating is when girls are like I want 3 kids. I ask this on the first date casually. This one girl is a teacher etc. I told her point blank on some Kevin Samuels you need a man that makes 200K minimum and kids are expensive and she said you got it I want to spoil my kids smh. Guys only date girls that make over 150K tbh that’s my rule.
