No I'm much older, have had horrible work-life balance and trying to change it, they reached out, I said F it I'll meet someone new and get back out there, wasn't expecting to click like we did. My next project is local and 6mths+ so no oppty to flex fly and I'm realizing my home town sucks for dating 😞

OP if they're worth a shot you can cough up some cash to fly out and visit. We all make more than enough money.

One awesome date? You must be 22 and just out of college. Don't know why you'd even bother trying to meet someone in the last few weeks of a travel project unless just trolling for sex.

Dream big OP. Action cures fear.

Flying from Palm Springs to Chicago on AA in Nov. Booked our trip in July and just got informed that the flight has been changed by 7 hours (from 3:30PM departure to 8:30AM). AA is offering either a refund or a flight change but we’re not interested in either since there’s no other direct flight on AA and other airline rates have since shot up. Are we entitled to any compensation? Points/Certificate? Tried arguing with the rep over the phone but he won’t budge.

Hi 🐠, need some advice. Was told by my manager that time doing research (for info related to my client) is not client billable and has to be charged to the overhead code. This strikes me as fundamentally wrong, esp bc this is a flat rate project so the hours will just affect my utilization / internal metrics, not how much the client is billed. I asked for a non-billable code that counts towards utilization but was told my utilization is fine even though I’d be billing <40hrs & to use OH code
