Is this really affecting your life? If so you worry too much. Your seat will still be available when u are the last to board. Doesn't matter to me. 🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️

Kinda matters when there’s no bin space because people put both of their items in there and ahead of their seats rather than at their seats leading to a cascading effect of people having to swim back to get their stuff

Most of the people who board in the wrong group are doing so because they don’t know better. Maybe 1-2 people per flight go out of order, and it would probably take longer to police for that than it would to just let them on.

Have an opportunity to roll of a 6-month engagement soon. PPEDs & SMEs would like me to return (minimum another 6 months). Client work is something I have absolutely no interest in (open SOW so a lot of BAU work). That being said, I don’t have another engagement lined up. I have been networking but my conversations have translated into involvement in pursuits/leads. I’d be walking away from guaranteed utilization on a G360 account and a potential agile promotion in May..gamble or not? thoughts?

Any advice on how to get there? Should I consider consulting down the line or stay in marketing?
