Staying at the Ritz Carlton - Dove Mountain, AZ for a long weekend. Before coming, I called and asked what the COVID restrictions were, I was given vague information and once I arrived realized that the restrictions were more stringent than described, and the only restaurant open for dinner service on hotel property is a mile away, near the golf course. When asking the hotel how we are supposed to get there for dinner, they told us that we would have to walk as they are understaffed....

United Platinum Upgrades: Flying Denver to Boston and I’m typically ~20-30 on the upgrade list. What gives? Is it always this impossible to get upgraded? I matched plat from Delta when I moved to Den.
Those of you who have went from having no car to having a car in the city...do you have any regrets? Even before Covid, I’ve often felt so “stuck” without a car, but I‘ve always been too cheap to seriously consider it. (Should mention that I don’t travel much for work, so that might make a difference in answers in the bowl.) Is it life changing!?
Hi 🐠! Incoming PwC cyber associate (summer 2022). What are the chances I actually travel? Thanks.
Q for Delta travelers:
We are going to buy a Delta gift card as a graduation gift (recipient is based out of SLC). I’ve flown Delta like once or twice in my life so I know nothing … is there any avenue to maximize the gift (for example, sales, discounts, promos such as lounge access with purchase)?
Thought I’d check to get the most bang for my buck before I purchase. TIA
Has anybody used EF - Ultimate Break to travel? I am planning on going to Costa Rica and wondering if it is a great way to travel as a solo female traveler. Any tips would help :)
What I’m about to say is extremely selfish, but I really don’t want to spend the last few “free” weeks prior to tax season with the family. I’m doing it because it means a lot to my mom. I have no friends back “home”. Also, I feel like if I had my own family or even a significant other the parents would understand me not coming home. For some reason I’m single so what else would I be doing lol now they want to travel with me when I’m home to see other relatives..

Newly diagnosed & medicated and new to consulting.
I’m great with clients but getting bad evaluations because I’m slow to produce work and don’t take time to communicate status.
I’m trying really hard but I keep getting stuck in perfection loops and scared to share things before they’re perfect.
Did you struggle with this & find a way to improve? I’m terrified I’m going to get counseled out, but I love this job so much.

What’s a job/industry that requires limited people interactions and still makes over $120k/year? The older I get the more I realize I’m not suitable for schmoozing, politics, or customer service..The amount of user error and 💩 that happens because people don’t pay attention when you’re explaining things, don’t read instructions, dont check their work, and/or don’t think through tasks is draining on me
Dear expense report auditors - screw you for asking for receipts for things under $25 (firm policy is you only need receipts for anything $25 and up).

With interest rates rising, am I better off paying off over paying my fixed term mortgage or investing over the next 4-5 years?
Mortgage rate is fixed for 5 years at a fairly low 1.99%. I could plough in extra cash to reduce overall interest over the years.
If I were to invest, I’d probably hold in cash for a few months and get into a regular investment in the market towards end of the year.

You can usually find a 6 month rental. I assume you’ll have a work permit? Don’t think you can get a tenancy if it’s just a visitor visa.
Can probably easily find a cheap sublet with all the people who have left London due to (1) Covid but also (2) brexit but still had a long term contract and this couldn’t get out of it
What’s are the best resources to search for sublets?
