Overheard at the bar..."What are Dallas people like?"

Basically if Fyre Festival was a person mixed with a healthy dose of entitlement.

Let's discuss.

Of all US cities to discuss, Dallas would fall under the line of discussion. Next.

I’m from Iowa and moved to Dallas. Iowa is such a low bar that Dallas is great. But this description is amazing. The hype is intense… and it’ll be a story and interesting memory…. But I think I’d rather just watch the documentary at this point.

Dallas definitely seems more old money (maybe the oil, gas?), but with a small town mentality. Although I have to say I have never seen so many expensive luxury and sports cars in my life as in Dallas, and I grew up around LA.

The people seem to dress poorly compared to LA and NYC, but all the girls carry Louis Vuitton and the guys Rolexes. I wish I was kidding.

No this is totally right. The stuff my Dallas friend insists is in style makes me want to barf and she believes the height of luxury fashion is an LV Neverfull tote

I’m originally from Austin and would take trips to Dallas to see family. It always just felt…desolate. Now that I’m older, when I go back it still feels desolate but in a McMansion kind of way.

If I had to pick three things to paint a picture of Dallas it would be tacky rich (shoddily built mansions, silly fashion choices mentioned above), dead grass, and highway overpasses. City itself seems meh, I’m not sure it really has any kind of character to write home about other than “you’re in Texas”.

Grew up in the Dallas area and never fit in. Small Town mentality. I moved out approx 10 years ago. Although there are more things to do and places to eat since then, it's more or less the same in regards to the people, especially the natives. Plus, the traffic got worse and more aggressive it seems.

Hey everyone!

Hello All,
Excel help please. I’m trying to combine 3 tabs into 1. So on tabs a,b,c I have wire instructions that go to different places, but they all have the same field names/format. However the number of rows for each tab will vary from day to day. I need to make a fourth tab that shows all the rows from a,b,c consecutively. Because the number of rows change, I can’t find the best way to collate all the rows into one table. I can use a macro or lookups or a source formula. Please advise!

Do you ever see a correlation between how messy your home space is when stress at work and life builds up? I let my dirty dishes build up in the sink and things get pretty embarrassing until I clean on Sunday. And then the cycle starts all over again. I love a tidy/organized space but just don’t have the mental capacity to care/be bothered

I’ve been unemployed for almost a year. Only upside is not having to work with the overpaid, incompetent, clueless manager I had to carry at the startup I was at.

So many interviews to final round, no offers. Feedback after hours of interviews and presentations has been - it was close, they had to go with the other candidate. And these jobs don’t even pay more than $110K.

Is it because I’m not white? I don’t know what to do, I’m struggling to handle the rejections with grace now. Help?

2) stay at home & save money for a down payment (I’ve saved a ton but need a bit more). If I choose this option, I will solo travel every 2-3 months to new countries. All serious advice appreciated!
