Haha as I was reading the article, I was imagining the behind the scenes. Clearly some VIPs pet idea and no one had the balls to push back. Meanwhile, the consultants are sending snide emails about the pending disaster to each other.

I have another idea. We can build an exchange site for united employees where they can trade their “performance bonuses”. Money to be made methinks

Looking to buy a quality, versatile leather bag as a treat from my first or second CT salary. It would need to be big and organized enough to fit my 14-inch laptop and some miscellaneous personal items, look professional to take to work/client meetings but also not look like your typical laptop bag. Plus if it costs less than 500 EUR/600 USD. Any recommendations are welcome! :)
