Looking to burn Marriott points and air miles? Thoroughly recommend the JW on Isla Della Rosa - Venice....
Why is every reply to folks asking “how many points would you ask for x?” along the lines of “get over yourself lol.” Is that really how folks feel? Are Marriott employees writing all the replies?

Worst CEOs you’ve ever worked with... I’ll go first, new CEO wanted us to drive his whole meeting with investors. He asked me for talking points so he could keep tabs on our team’s progress on key messages to investors 😂😂😂 I’m like dude, literally this is your ONE job, why would you outsource it to your advisors?
I need some unbiased perspective: four of us teach the same class and, as required, give common assessments. We discuss how many points assignments are worth, how much we curve each test, etc though we vary a bit here and there on all of these things. The problem is that one of us grades everything DRAMATICALLY easier. Their average on a 50 point assignment might be as much as 20 points higher than the other teachers. What do I tell parents who complain??
