My hygienist talks way too much during my cleaning. What is a polite way to tell them to finish quickly so I can get back to my powerpoint?

I had the same issue, I started bringing my ear buds and pretending I was in a meeting.


I'm usually very straight forward, and in any other situation I'd let them know they are talking too much. But I don't think it's smart to be brutally honest with someone who's about to introduce sharp objects and power tools in your mouth 😂.


The worst is when they give you someone that’s learning on the job, I wanna say go practice on children - I have work.

Rate my redemption! Girlfriend (ATL) and I (DFW) are flying round trip Air France business class to Florence and Rome for 176,000 AMEX MR points = 220,000 Flying Blue miles.

Plus domestic airfare to rendezvous point (JFK) + taxes and fees on international travel: $1,600

Estimated hotel cost after AMEX credit: $841

Plus inter-italy train travel, COVID test, other expenditures.

Estimated retail cost of international tickets is $3,100 each way per person so that's ~64¢/MR point

Hi! I am currently employed in Unilever Netherlands. I know they have a company in one other country where I would like to move but keep my current position and the team. Does anyone know if this is feasible? I am not aware of all the administratory issues this may cause so I would appreciate if someone knows more about it and share it 😊 I am also work level 1 which should make it easier I suppose

Just because I’m curious. How many of you are planning on giving notice after Jan 1?


Am I the only one that runs into this? Halfway into an interview it’s apparent you know the role better than the hiring manager does. As soon as this happens I always feel like I am wasting my time because I know they’re likely going to look for a less experienced candidate. Unfortunately I don’t have the years of experience for senior manager/director roles so it seems I run into this very often for manager level roles.
