Had a flight from Detroit, connecting in ORD, then going to Denver. The flight from Detroit to Chicago was 50 minutes, our plane sat on the ORD Tarmac waiting for a gate for 1hr 45min... I missed my connection to Denver by 15 min. HATE ORD!!

@P1, I make it a personal rule to never book connections through ORD if I can. It will fuck your shit up.

Vax question: my state is finally letting me get the vax. I am hoping to do it this weekend (J&J).

Will the J&J vax cause a false positive on my COVID test? I don’t think it will, as it is a viral vector vax and not a weakened version of the virus, but maybe there is someone on this app who knows the real answer.

I had a great interview for a new job and an initial offer, but HR told me that there's no room for negotiation. I'm a woman, and the HR rep is an older gentleman that I think doesn't respect my experience/position. I'm not sure if I should take it or push back. I don't want to be the person who doesn't reach for what I deserve, and I don't know whether to believe him.

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
