Next time ask the FA on your first flight to call ahead.

That was the frustrating thing I asked them to call ahead. I got to the gate and the gate agents were straight mean. I asked if they received the call that I was coming and they just stared at me and said doesn't matter you can't get on

So I went to the United lounge changed out of my skirt and got a large glass of wine

@OP A/S/L?

What is L?

Am I crazy for thinking about accepting a new job while 6 months pregnant? (They know I am and are finding a way to match my current employers leave so I still get that).

Tax exit opportunities are hard (at least I’ve found so far) but not sure if it’s the right “time” family wise.
