Since Republicans are trying to paint a potential domestic travel ban on Florida as a political attack, just a friendly reminder that the Covid-king, Governor DeSantis, was all in favor of it a year ago when he asked for one.
NYC is requiring proof of vaccination for all indoor activities. That’s absolutely nuts (and I’m vaccinated)!
I saw this reference today from the Southwest CEO so I will use it. And i was close enough on 9/11 to be covered in dust. If we let it, coronavirus will kill the economy. Don’t let that happen.
I am leaving the classroom. I don't want to manage so many humans at one time, anymore. I'm considering working remote to be able to travel more easily and figure out where I want to live and what I want. Is there anyone who has left the classroom or the education field? What jobs were you able to transition into?
There has been brewing division for decades now but Trump has torn the remaining shreds of unity and decorum this country had. It wouldn’t have cost anything to make a unifying and pacifying statement. Reminding us all that we are all Americans and despite our checkered past, the goal is to forge ahead as one united nation.... I was sold on Trump in 2015 and voted for him cos I found him different and entertaining. Now, I’m filled with extreme disgust!!
This is more of a Quote of the Day, but that’s how us old-schoolers do memes. “There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge’.” -Isaac Asimov
When is the new marriott promotion coming out?
My boyfriend is going on his first international trip to Europe for work and I want to get him a gift to make the long plane ride better. Is there anything you wish you had/were glad you had for a long flight?
On an international United flight (NJ-Paris), Is it possible to get a free upgrade to First Class if there are still seats lefts and you are a Platinum member member?
What’s the best usage of Amex points right now? I don’t want to use them on travel (for obvious reasons). Is it best to hold onto them until I travel again, or should I spend some now on something else? I have a little over 100k
Lol at the people in Group 3 & 4 who think there's overhead compartments for their bags on a 7am flight to Chicago.
Waitlisted AA SWU for international return flight from Asia. Any chance SWU will be cleared between now and my travel date (Jan 2021)? Currently, 9 out of 20 biz seats are already taken. Geez
I need 11k EQMs on AA by 12/31. No more travel planned. Willing to do a mileage run.... any suggestions on good fares you’ve seen recently?
Hi Everyone - are there any EY folks that can give me some insight into the working environment and any changes to your travel requirements. I’m considering a role in the FSO unit. Thanks!
Made plans for my close non-lawyer friend to visit. Found out she is unvaccinated (hasn’t gotten around to it - she says). The handful I hangout with are vaccinated. Majority of my office is vaccinated - or required to wear mask entire day. Struggling to find the words to cancel plans until she’s vaccinated. She is sensitive. Any advice?
Anyone know if Southwest or Alaska sells flight packages? Like packs of 10 flights for people who frequently fly? Someone told me this exists haha
Took a long break from freelance/FT to get myself in shape, make a film, travel, luckily I’ve saved up. When I DO decide to return to work and if people ask why the long gap, what do I say? Just that?
Heard of folks who booked appointments at United Center (non-eligible zip codes) and they weren’t cancelled - folks went in, no documents checked and got their shots Is there no checking/validation? Asking since there have a ton of appointments available past few days and next 2 weeks

Ah now it did.
The stock market is crazy right now, should I sell everything and hold cash for sometime?
Client offered me a job at 50k more than what I make. Plus no travel. Very torn. For those that left consulting for industry and came back, can you share why you came back?
Lowly consultant in a long-term staff augmentation role - If I were on the client-side, I’d be Sr. Director or VP level for the exact same responsibilities. Is this common? How about at MBB?
How do you keep track of your travel plans when on the road? Aside from tripit, any apps? In need of some new ideas...
That awkward situation where your girlfriend works for your firm's largest M&A competitor. #spyvspy
Am I the only one who doesn’t color code their calendar? It’s just yet another step to do and tbh I don’t see value in it other than perhaps it might just make you feel more organized to see things in color.
Travel pet peeve: people who put their luggage in the overhead bin way ahead of their row; they leave no room for people in that row 😤
Is it unreasonable to ask someone from PT timezone to follow ET hours for 1 month during critical phase of the project? To be specific.. starting 9AM ET. Work day typically gets over at 6p ET or sooner sometimes, and this person makes it such a big deal and makes it sound like they are doing team a favor.
Stereotypical first class passenger asks me if I am in the right seat and proceeds to shove his ticket with A4 on it in my face. I said, "Congrats you made it to the right gate. Have fun in the back."
Any other Deloitters in this 8 week PMP training program? Behind on skillsoft courses? Me too. Wondering if PMP is really even worth the effort. Seems a little 2007.
Any tips or best practices on meeting with a client for the first time? I'm not leading the engagement, but I'd still like to make a professional impression!
