My friends think it's cool that I "get to" travel all the time, they don't get how disruptive my job really is... #flightattendantproblems

It's interesting how people often focus on the perks rather than the reality, isn't it? Sure, I get to travel often and I love it! I've also made a long list of sacrifices in exchange. I deal with angry, stressed out people daily, have an unpredictable schedule, can't maintain relationships because I'm gone so much. I'm sure the people who think I'm "lucky" would never make those sacrifices themselves.

I know what you mean, and I bet none of these people could handle a job like this.

People tend to have really romanticized ideas of what other people's jobs are like. The truth is most jobs aren't as glamorous as they seem and they all have their downsides

Haha yeah, same here! What I wouldn't give to come home every night and spend weekends in the actual city I supposedly live in. It's pretty difficult to maintain friendships this way because I never know where I will be next month so making plans ahead of time is a bit troublesome.

It's all a matter of perspective, isn't it? I mean don't get me wrong, I do like my job most of the time, and I get to visit places I've never been. But what people don't seem to understand is that when I'm on a ship, I'm in work mode, and while I technically get lunch breaks and evenings off, I'm still stuck on board with all the same people. It isn't usually so bad but it is definitely odd.

Not exactly the same career, but I spend all day on the phone and corresponding online with various sources to make and confirm bookings for my clients. So when I get a vacation, the absolute last thing I want to do is fly to some exotic location. All I'd be thinking about was "I don't like this room, I should have gone with the other hotel I was looking at" and "hey, they allow dogs, I'll have to keep that in mind in case a client asks me." No thank you.

My GF has trouble standing up for herself. She's on client travel and one of her co-workers made her really upset (very uncalled for and should have never happened). She called me crying. After consoling her I told her that she needs to go to her manager and possibly HR (yes it's to that level).
She told me she can't and she's not that person (she thinks she'll get the other person fired). She knows that she should and hates that she doesn't stand up for herself. What can I do to help?

Hi everyone! Can anyone tell me what you make as a typical banquet/events manager for salary or per hour? I’ve worked for Marriott/Bonvoy at the Ritz and for the Curio Collection with Hilton as a bartender/server/banquets captain. Now I’m working for a privately owned hotel and as a manager role in Banquets/Events. Because of pandemic times, what is everyone else making?

Seems like their culture is great, but a much higher work load due to the nature of the company. Thanks! Happy to answer DM's too

Just got engaged 😊😊. Need some advice. We both have two homes already.
1. Is it always better to get a third home ?
2. If yes, is better to rent out or sell the other two homes? Both homes mortgages are $1250 & $1450 and 1500 sqft & 2200 sqft respectively. Both homes are 3 bedrooms.
3. If we are getting a third home what price range is recommended?

We are based in Houston and HHI is going to be $380,000(including bonus & rsu) & $300,000 base. We are 27F & 30 M and no kids yet.
