That arm rest battle each time you get in the plane though.

This annoys me so much. Everybody know, aisle gets leg room and one arm rest, window gets support and one arm rest, middle gets both. This is like the global unsaid commandment of flying.


I'm not trying to be a snob... But do many consultants fly coach?


^^same at Accenture, after a certain level the system won't let you book anything less than business class


I thought most do since clients pay for your travel and unless your budget specifically asks for business class - it's obvious to pay for coach and get upgraded based points. Is it different at BCG?


I'm not sure how it works with fees and contracts etc. but It's always business class. I think there is a min flight time of 1.5 hours but I have never flown less than that.


I support anything that follows the opening statement "I'm not trying to be a snob but". Gold everytime


That's interesting. I am guessing you don't work out of Chicago office since I hear BCG Chicago doesn't travel much..

At Deloitte you fly coach until a certain level, then it's business.

Really just trying not to be honest without coming across as a dick. And no I'm not out of Chicago .. It's just that when I travel it is often more than 1.5 hour flights

Heard some troubling news from a friend. Her husband got fired for sexual harassment allegations from several women. I wouldn’t know how to react if my husband came home and gave me that news. I’d question if it was true or not. How would you react if your SO told you this? Would this be a deal breaker in your relationship?

Looking for tips / advice though this isn’t really about fashion. I’ve never had an intense (“external”?) orgasm. I feel like right when I get to the top of the cliff I’m already coming down - it doesn’t last long. What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I have the intense orgasms (squirt, etc) that other women do? I also only climax from clitoral stimulation not penetration….please help a fellow 👩

What is the best way to estimate take home pay for a partner? Apologies if this is a duplicative question, but I did search.
