What is the "pls fix" meme? Has anyone actually encountered it irl? Does the sender of the pls fix actually tell you what is wrong or is it on us to figure out what is wrong?

It was a phrase partners USED to say... the current vernacular is “let’s tweak this a bit”

I’ve seen it used at the end of a list of things wrong with your work:

“Structure needs work, please align page numbers, footnote formatting inconsistent. Pls Fix. Thx”

It’s more like “can you please fix .... “

At this point it’s basically slang. I tell my names “plz fix” all the team with that as the opener and a bunch of comments. They are gen z and get it haha.

My supervisors were the stereotypical senior managers, and this was basically their theme.

Haha, welcome to consulting! It's a meme that caricatures senior partners who just leave the feedback 'plz fix' or 'make better' on a slide with no additional details or direction. I've fortunately never experienced it myself 😁

Been there multiple times especially on client deliverables. I get much more input and clarity on proposals 😆

Has anyone traveling to Canada recently? I am planning to go for four days and part of the documentation is to use the ArriveCAN app which has you complete a questionnaire. One of the questions on there is whether or not you have a suitable quarantine plan, in the event that border control requires you too. I guess I would just extend my stay at the hotel if required, does anyone know if that's an acceptable answer if asked by border control?
