Parents just renewed their passports in India - start to finish in 3 days including submitting their form online. Pretty incredible compared to what is used to be.

I just came back to India last week (Delhi NCR) and have been mostly pleasantly surprised (except for pollution and mobile network)

I got my passport renewed in 2013 and it was one of the most pleasant experiences I’ve had with any organization (not just govt agency). Super efficient process, and thoughtful human centered design (E.g. there were people simply walking around to help those who were struggling to fill the form, so that there wouldn’t be a hold up or delays because people filled the form wrong - this is an especially thoughtful design feature when a lot of people coming in only have basic literacy levels). All the staff from the officers to the security guards were kind and pleasant and eager to help. End to end process took 1 week - no tatkal. TCS did a good job!

Ditto! Parents attended the interview on a Friday morning and by Saturday afternoon had their passports in hand! Blew my mind.

I finally found a job after being jobless for 2 months! It’s a 6 to 12 month contract and I can start immediately. I know I should be super happy but a part of me is not super excited about this. It’s a level under what I’m used to and from my chat with them it’s not a very strategic/creative role, more doing transcreational stuff. I’m however used to being super involved in all the strat and concepting etc and I’m kinda scared I’ll lose touch with everything I’ve learned so far, esp the strat!

Amex outstanding balance does not match what I have in the expense system as owed. There is about $1K difference. But the reconciliation report is coming back balanced. Is there an easy way to verify?

I'm on an engagement and a manager jokingly told a new associate "you're fired" and the associate jokingly said back "f*** you". Do you think that was appropriate? Should that get held against her?

Have you ever talked to someone for ages.. like months and months, you get along great - make holiday plans and imagine life together .. then you meet and.. it’s awkward? Trying to figure if it was just pent up nerves and expectation..
