Sitting next to a guy on the plane who is obv pretty sick (constantly coughing and wiping his runny nose on his hands). Am I wrong for thinking "thanks a Lot a$$hole"?? Expecting I'll be 😨🤒 soon.

Maybe he got sick and he's trying to get home. Wouldn't you do the same?

So I just spent all day on standby to be able to take the middle of the last row home a little early because i am sick. I thought about what I was doing and how it would impact others around me but short of paying for a private jet or flying in a hazmat suit, there's not a lot of options.

I get wanting to go home. He's got that right, just like I have a right to be peeved. With close proximity, 1 sick person soon = many. That's basic biology. I don't want to live in a bubble but I also didn't sign up to get this guys bug.

Yes it's disgusting. Once or twice I get, but 10-15 while we are boarding is gross. His cell phone is a germ lab right now.

Acn1, so having a cold means I should rack up hotel bills and medical bills instead of going home and recovering. I hope you're kidding. For your own sake.

Being sick from your fellow human being is a cost of living in a society and not on an Island - how about brining back a little humanity and sympathy and not be so quick to judge others?

He should be wearing a fking mask and use a damn Kleenex. I always cray disinfecting wipes with me and dramatically start wiping the hand rests whenever I'm next to some one that looks or sounds sick and is coughing all over. I don't know if it actually makes a difference but whoever. Makes me feel better. Once I even brought masks with me (this was when Ebola was in Dallas) and totally wore it on my flight with pride.

CLT to ORD. Look, it's fine to be sick- happens to everyone. But nonstop coughing in the open (not covering mouth) and not getting a friggin tissue to blow your nose instead of your hands is gross. Guy was acting like a kindergartner.

Honestly so sick of recruiters, I had someone tell me that most people leave public accounting for less money than they made in audit.... so let me get this straight, we work hard for 2-3 years so that we can find a job that pays less? I’m a early promo to senior asking for 90k (5k jump from what I would have made if this was a normal year)

Even though this group may be biased, I need to ask. I am having a hard time picking between med school and business school. I have worked as an analyst for two years but see no fulfillment in my job. I know I could get into IB or equity research but I still have no real interest in it. But I also have zero experience in the medical field. I was a finance major and would be doing a complete 180, but the idea of medicine sounds so much more fulfilling than any career in finance. Thoughts?

I have a low cost medical insurance with the $2.5K deductible and didn't go to the doctor much last year, so they ended up charging to the max. Talked with the hospital and insurance, got the itemized statement, but no help. Please share your wisdom with this clueless foreigner, TIA 😭
