PD code?

But really from a time perspective, ask the partner/senior staff who you're working with for a PD/ reinvest code. That way they can also give you a snapshot if it's enough hours

I'm sorry Pdubs 🐠, we typically use the meal code "Snack" and add most everyone's name to it. By we, I mean my analysts. They get the AMEX points, an excuse to unplug for a few, and no shit.

P4 yeah ended up doing it as a group meal

I've always done group meal but have always been on lax expense budgets with leaders that told me they'd take responsibility if anything was ever flagged. Definitely don't eat the bill yourself though - why even come to work in that case? P1 are you suggesting OP bill time to a PD code and ask for snapshots for getting coffee??

Venmo. Pay for your own damn coffee. 😁

Thoughts on sacrificing the next two years of my social life and saving money OR moving out to a city and burning through an extra $30K in expense per year ($60K in total)?
