No can do my friend. It's either LIRR or drive. Some buses may go there but it's a long shot

The LIRR is nice (and you can drink on it if you desire!). And for what it's worth... I've taken the LIRR 3 hours after a 22 flight and survived 😱

Subway? Long Island is relatively big though, could you be more specific? JFK? Hamptons? Montauk?

True. Roslyn area

Taxi isn't unreasonably expensive

From penn? Lol thats a pretty penny

Bf doesnt wanna take LIRR. We're both traveling in from other states. LIRR late at night after 4-5 hours traveling prior doesnt sound fun 😔

In that case, rent a car or Uber. It will be time consuming either way. My parents live in LI and I would personally recommend LIRR.

In general, I would take LIRR over driving almost any time if it's a viable option, but particularly after a long trip rather than fighting road traffic.

Thanks guys! Looks like LIRR it'll be! My friend suggested a LI ferry that started running into the Roslyn area from Manhattan, but i believe its only during rush hour right?

How do you handle billing disputes? Already feel like we’re a steal compared to other firms, but it’s the pits when clients kvetch about the bill after working hard on their matters.

I am a sales rep and have worked extremely hard to build a large book of business. Every year upper management seems to find a way to cut commissions and make my hard work, worth less. Is this common? It’s pretty draining to work harder and get paid less year over year even though you’re typically getting more business. I don’t feel valued. Do more for less? Any other great sales companies/ industries that people are happy with and compensated accordingly? Preferably uncapped commissions

Anyone else get tired of the LinkedIn charade? Every day I see countless posts by people in advertising/marketing that come across as preachy, self-indulgent, humble brags that annoy me.

Or the super-duper smart Copywriter who regurgitates Olgyvisms that we’ve all read a billion times to show his or her worth.
