Agree with OP, southwest is like the uber pool of airlines

Southwest is like riding the city bus. I prefer to travel with people who also travel for business, it saves me time and hassle

Southwest planes are all 737s so you don't get dicked over because your plane broke and they don't have the parts needed

Just flew southwest yesterday - sure the point system might suck since you don't have loyalty and upgrades etc, but it's a comfy ride, the bins are large (you can get away with an expanded carry on) and fuck yea peanuts. Yes, I'm still bitter they made me fly southwest too...

Then you need to make a strong argument that the additional comfort outweighs the additional cost.

Southwest is better than American. I take southwest when I can, sadly the firm prefers American or even worse United

Companion pass ftw

True companion pass is legit

Super happy with my girlfriend - we’ve been together for almost three years now and are quite serious. But something that’s always irked me a little is that she’s pretty adamant about having kids in 5 years (I’m 24, she’s 23). I think that’s a little early for my liking - I’ve always imagined myself to have really made it in my career (doesn’t have to be making Partner, but at least few million in the bank) before having a kid. It’s still early, but what’s the best way to compromise and think?

Hey fishies, I have a friend who is interested in becoming a consultant but he’s taken an interesting path, would love your advice on any good angles he could take for applying/ types of roles. He has a bachelors in science (chemistry maybe?) from H/Y/P and after undergrad he took a less traditional route and was working as an instructor for things like tennis, piano, snowboarding, etc.. He’s a really smart, personable person who I think would be great in consulting. (Continued)
