Chase ultimate rewards: So I found out chase ultimate rewards messed up with booking my vacation return flight. They forgot to get a ticket issued. I talked to customer support and the “best they could do” was book me on a different but similar flight, I would be getting back at midnight instead of noon and giving me 7k points for the inconvenience. For future reference was I entitled to more since that this error messes with my initial plans?
I confided in my husband that I don’t want to do our embryo transfer in April, because I don’t want a baby born in December. I think it would be so hard to be overshadowed by the holidays, we have a massive family and a birthday around the holiday would definitely not be seen as a priority by others. Plus, it’s just such a hectic time. My husband looked at me and thought I was crazy. Is this stupid? Am I selfish for wanting to hold off for a January or later birthday?
Booked a 5 day vacation in Cabo in late December. Anyone been in the past year? Curious as to how safe it is right now. Planning on staying at the Sheraton. Open to going elsewhere, just really ...
How much maternity leave did you all take? I get 12 weeks paid but I’m thinking about taking additional unpaid leave.

Trying to figure out my ML plan and how much time off to take.

A sign I need to fire some clients: when my out of office email reply hits the next reaction is to immediately call my cellphone. Nope. Call the number I left in the email to gain assistance.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/05/technology/parents-time-off-backlash.html As a non-parent, I get why it’s important to provide some accommodations to workers with parents and am in full support of parental benefits.

Why do people “managers” in particular insist on being a martyr while on vacation…. by saying I’ll have my laptop or I’ll have my phone, why do we do this? We’ve earned the time off why is it necessary to be constantly plugged in and why say it? btw - there’s no prize for being a workaholic.
