Old lady next to me has a cast on her leg. I'm in the window seat while she has the middle. I'm scared to drink water thru this 5.5 hours flight coz I don't want to trouble her to go to the bathroom😔

They shouldn't have let her on the flight. Did they not realize the medical risk of you holding in your urine for that long? How selfish

Aisle person was her husband. I think I finally understood relationship goals. Also, successfully managed to not visit the bathroom!

Hey folks, I need help choosing start dates for work (graduating May 2021), I'm deciding between putting January 2022 and September 2021 as my first choice and leaning towards January with the following considerations Pros: - travel - time with friends and family - time to do social impact internship - off chance of doing another internship at a tech company Cons: - delayed accumulation of tenure - could be waste if I don't proactively plan my time - slightly less income Any thoughts/advice?
