AA Exec Plat here. Just flew Delta and they are so so good. Great covid related communication, fully sanitised aircraft, back to front boarding, handed each passenger a wipe upon boarding and offered more later. Flight hasn't even started yet and I'm floored. Their LAX lounge was also open and perfectly planned for the pandemic.
Been working remote for most of Covid. With things opening back up I’m really struggling with deciding if I should head back gone or not. I’ve loved exploring and traveling but I also have some fomo and miss my friends. First world problems I know but do I miss a once in a lifetime shot to travel more or finally reunite with friends.

I've worked as a graphic designer, interactive designer and creative director; freelance in the NFL, MLS, Premier League and PGA Tour; and have written about sports marketing for Adweek & Adidas.

How do you work through sickness? Lets say you have to travel with a cold that turns into an absolutely exhausting month of sickness. Maybe it’s just me, but it seems to happen at least once a year.
If you moved to the US when you were 18, and now you are 40 years old, with very minor accent, when you travel aboard, do you say that you come from India or USA?

Trying to create a consulting bingo card that isn’t “consulting phrases” but more shared experiences that people in consulting can relate to. Any ideas? An example would be “Monday AM flight delayed”

Federal Foreclosure Moratorium:
FHA/HUD, VA, Fannie & Freddie have all extended their moratoriums in the CARES Act to 12/31/2020.
Exceptions still apply to vacant and abandoned homes.
Obviously this will affect Plaintiff foreclosure firms the hardest. Can’t enter Final Judgments, hold sales or file new complaints.

Looking at a used CLS 550 (don't like the newer styling) and an an impeccable CL 55. Hoping to find a well kept 911 or RS4. What else should I be looking at? I know these are all wildly different. Can't stand SUVs and would love a manual... Ideas?
If you leave a company with a more generous 401(k) match—100% vested—than a new company, is it a dick move to max out your account before you leave? What if you max it out after your two week notice?

We had a “New Years” connectivity exercise today where we all put on a jamboard how we welcomed in the new year. One person wrote “China virus - omicron flavor”. I noticed it during the call but didn’t see who wrote it and due to everyone making edits at the same time, version history isn’t any help. Any advice on how to best address this with the team?
If you were single and wanted a dog as a consultant with no roommates, do you feel confident enough that consulting won't return to full travel model it was before that you would get a dog or two? Note: I'm joining consulting again since pre pandemic. I would not get a dog if every week I was religiously traveling.
I lateraled into big law about 8 months ago from a smaller firm. I’m a 4th year. I thought the hours weren’t that different and the pay was much better. Whoops, silly me. This. Is. Awful. Apparently I’m one of those people who doesn’t think there’s a price for being treated like a whole human rather than a machine that deals with hazing and “this is just how it is”.
Looking for referrals as a new frontend developer. I completed a boot camp in March and have been struggling to find a job ever since. Any advice or referrals would be much appreciated!
