>But I'm just too competitive
Competitive is actually good in this regard. Just retarget the competitive energy. Try to beat yourself in some way everytime you do a task. This includes those soft skills that make for good interviews. Learn the techniques.
And if you aren't a specialist, I imagine you're a generalist. That's highly valuable and opens up a lot of doors. If someone's a specialist, they are really only hireable in that role or something adjacent, at least at a mid-high level. But generalists generally know enough that you can train them into more specialized positions or use them for all-in-one/flex/managerial roles.
Afaik no. It’s a good question. Enh autopilot was only re-added past few months IIRC. Even if it was included, I’d expect marginal difference. The profit/vehicle they flex is from engineering their costs down every year. Operation leverage is a great graph to look up.
He's a playa. I like how he flexes (after missing all those shots).
Technology sector gets no more free passes. They cannot flex anymore for Wall Street.
Layoffs, share buybacks, CEOS not taking pay, etc. Smoke and flexes will only get you so far....
Big corporations with big payrolls need big growth numbers. Simple.
The better flex right now would be to tell people how to get "into" it. You'd make bank off of that.
I completely agree... i think this "recession" is different because population/culture. Not sure about USA stats but 20 Percent of the Canadian population are seniors. 15 percent are children in school and that number drops year over year as less people have kids. 5 percent of canadians are on welfare and other 6 percent are on permanent or longterm disability. Remove the upper-class, white collar workers, business owners and your left with a minority of working folk available for poo jobs... if they havent already chosen to just do uber/door dash/amazon flex for 10 hours a day on their own schedule...as anyone making less than $24/h at a job is only putting $17/h in their pocket after deductions/taxes and many are waking up to this. Millennials want more money and produce way less in comparison to the generations before them.
Job stat numbers are also manipulated as the government counts one person with two jobs as "two jobs" when calculating gdp numbers.
The markets have space to drop as there is no real support other than human psychology... artificial printing is what took BTC to 68k and TSLA to $2800 in the middle of covid 2021 so my answer is always to DCA
Kind of a flex tbh. It’s telling China that we can fuck them up with more expensive toys if they wanna tussle
Let me flex for a second. This doesn’t happen often for me. It’s a new found skill set. Let me have my moment
that's a hypothetical isn't it? so we don't know. i do think the US is known for being trigger-happy though and always wanting to flex their military might in a showy kind of way.
the US has sent military equipment to taiwan. is that not stoking the fires and provoking china? the US also has thousands of military bases around the world and those personnel are known for harassing, attacking, stealing from and raping the locals. and they get away with it because they're pretty much bullies. they're not keeping the peace. they're abusing the power they have.
Yeah, $1500 is not a very high limit, so I see where you're coming from.
The Amex BCE is good for groceries and gas (and I have a special place in my heart for it because it was my first card).
The Chase Freedoms are good for dining and you can decide if you want a flat 1.5% rate (Unlimited) or chase the rotating 5% categories (Flex). The bonus of these is that you can save up your points until your credit is good enough to get the Sapphire Preferred and transfer the points over (where they're redemption is worth slightly more).

What a flex to write this in this sub...
Be aware that that number will eventually plummet. I drove for lyft and amazon flex for about 2 years total, at a certain point lyft rates and frequency plummeted, likely due to oversaturation. Similar situation with amazon flex except it was a little more strange, each time I went up a rank (they gamify their system so to speak) the rates decreased by a noticeable amount, I'm talking something like 180 for a 4 hour block to 130 for a four to finally around 80 for a four hour. You could probablty chalk that up to oversaturation again, but I think it's the way their algorithm is structured. I would talk to people working the same block who were getting double what I was, and the only difference is time they had been in the system.
Then subtract mileage and wear and tear and your profit looks much less robust. Take from this what you will just know the game is rigged against the operator.
Sounds like your post is an odd flex of how smart you are with cap rates and how dumb your agent is and you’re SO much better than him. Dude, get off you let high horse, have him find properties for you, do your own math and stfu.
At least a kangaroo can flex those biceps and chest without doing much research works on the market!
I have the Chase trinity and I like it. I'm not tied to a single airline or hotel, so I like having the flexibility. I use the Chase Freedom Flex and Unlimited to rack up points and then transfer to my Chase Sapphire preferred ($95 AF) where the points are worth more (as long as you book through the Chase travel portal).
I used to have the Reserve in the before times, but I downgraded because I don't travel as much anymore. It's got a hefty AF of $550, but they also give you an annual $300 travel credit, which effectively brings the fee down to $250 a year. It also comes with some added benefits like TSA Precheck reimbursement and lounge access. I think the points are also worth more than the preferred when redeemed through the travel portal.
The cost of living in the western world is high. Period. The digital economy is making it easier for some to pivot into starting their own business in drop shipping, only fans, fulfillment, being a self employed Uber driver, DoorDasher(flex gig is way better while you’re doing something else too?.. I mean I saw an Uber driver guy make $130k FT driving with bonuses in California, authoring books and working online with WFM… lots of options. People have choices and that means they will pick what works for them.
Yes there’s lots of postings but not any for the flex job. You choose your own hours with that one. I will wait for that to be posted
I’m waiting for Amazon to post a flex shift job posting. You just have to work a minimum of 20 hours a month to keep the job. I’ll try and aim for at least 20 hours a week tho. I’m confused on the taxes but I think I’d make at least $12k more a year after taxes. I don’t much but shitpost so I’d rather work than spend that time on my phone.
Id rather get another job and work 60+ hour weeks than go back to school. I feel so redarded. Idk man
I honestly believed we'd flex and laser it
You sound like you barely made it through high school. Weak flex.
I think it could be some sort of paper trading bullshit and he’s just tryna flex that fake ass money lmao
I had a 2009 crew max tundra for a while with similar experience. The body seems "weak" and the automatic carwash blow dryer would make the roof flex like a pickle jar lid. I have 5 Toyotas and 1 Lexus at the moment. I've owned various Toyota models from 1983 to current. I can say the tundra was insanely reliable for me, but the body always seemed fragile.
Hope there full of nuts. That would be a big flex.
Love these sad attempts to try to flex lmao. What a clown
Mostly due to the Gig Economy. People can make roughly the same or more and set their own schedules. Airbnb, Uber, Doordash, Turo, Shipt, Amazon flex, Upwork, Fiverr, etc. Higher paying more skilled jobs tend to have a surplus of candidates.

I respect the flex
Is this a flex, or an advertisement post? Can’t decide.
I too am a civil service employee and work a flex schedule of 37.5hrs a week. Can I make more money absolutely but am I going to week 37.5hrs no way. I am off every paid Friday, so I only work 9 days of the 10 day week. So there are trade offs if it’s all about money then leave, but you can always look to bid into other jobs if your union allows. I have always worked to live not live to work.
Exactly. They make a good wage - if you don't look into it. But when you analyze work hours - it's not that much of a flex anymore - when it takes over your life.
Yeah exactly… I don’t think would’ve had one anyway… idk wtf they thinking… they have satellites around us and stuff, so I don’t get why they would let themselves be seen unless they’re trying to flex… which is seriously odd tbh…
That's not the flex you think it is
I use the following:
AmEx Blue Cash Preferred - 6% on groceries and streaming services
Chase Freedom Unlimited - 1.5% everything, 3% dining/drugstores
Chase Freedom Flex - rotating 5% categories
Chase Sapphire Reserve - 3% travel
The nice thing is you can roll all those Chase points into Sapphire and get 50% more on travel so it ups your earnings potential even more. The annual fee is a lot of Sapphire Reserve but you also get a $300 annual credit and other benefits which pay for themselves.
So I was in your position a few months ago so I figured I'd chime in with some that were on my radar. Sorry, it's long winded but comprehensive as I spent a ton of time browsing to see what was out there. I also was looking for a card with better benefits with my first card being the Discover It card I got in college 5-6 years ago. My credit score when I was looking was around 760-770, for reference because some cards are harder to get. I was looking to maximize savings, get rewards in categories that are meaningful to my lifestyle, and bank with a company that had an easy to navigate app and good customer service. I also knew I had large upcoming expenses on the horizon and wanted to utilize a sign up bonus, even if the card had a yearly fee. I found cards with better deals had the yearly fees, but as long as you are utilizing it enough it pays for itself.
The Amazon Rewards Visa Signature Card More cash back on Amazon purchases, restaurants, drugstores, gas, and 1% for the rest. You get more back for Amazon purchases if you have prime. I was considering this card but my Husband already has it and does the majority of Amazon purchases for us.
Blue Cash Everyday/Preferred Card from American Express More cash back for groceries, streaming, transit, gas, online retail, and 1% for the rest, depending on which card. I decided against American Express for the time being because I've found it accepted less than Discover and wanted to stick with Mastercard or Visa.
Citi Double Cash MasterCard 2% back on everything, 1% when bought and another 1% when paid off Solid choice for not having to worry about the categories but there were better options in my opinion
Chase Freedom Flex MasterCard/Unlimited Visa More cash back on travel purchased through the Chase Ultimate rewards portal, dining, drugstore, and either 1.5% or 1% on the rest depending on which card. The Flex has a rotating 5% category like Discover but only 1% vs the 1.5% the Unlimited offers. Both seem like solid card options.
Chase Sapphire Preferred Visa Card $50 hotel credit when redeemed through the Ultimate Rewards portal, more cash back on travel, dining, streaming services, grocery stores, and 1% back on the rest. This is what I ended up getting because of the bonus points offered when signing up and spending a certain amount in the first three months. The money I got back more than offset the yearly fee, but you can downgrade to a free card down the road. The $50 credit also helps offset the fee and doesn't require a lot of travel. I also really like Chase's app and rewards portal.
Yes; assuming no payments made in February yet for the expiring 0% card, 2065 / 6 months (Feb-July before August expiration) ~ $344.17
$344.17 + $229 = $573.17
This assumes the flex loan is just the $229/month with no additional fees or interest that could be avoided by paying it down faster.
>I wrote this myself
That's not the flex you think it is.
My first card was Discover. Seems like they’ll give almost anyone with a pulse a card with a low limit. It’s been a nice card to have with the rotating 5%.
After building some credit history I got a chase freedom flex for an alternating 5% in different categories, the constant 3% back on dining is really nice as well. Also grabbed a Target Redcard because I frequently shop there.
Hi guys! So I have set up a free service to upload CSV files to analyze your trades. Or in iBKR:s case, connect to their Flex Query API to auto fetch data.
You can find the page on https://tradedetail.com
In the beginning I was building it for myself because I refuse to pay $30 a month for something like TraderVue, and for something I can do myself. $30 is way too much for what they actually offer. And once I got to a certain stage of the page, I thought others could benefit from it as well.
So here we are, this is a beta of my own version of a post-trade review tool. I am still adding features, like that calendar feature that I added last week. I also planning on adding other brokers in the future.
I hope it can bring you value, and please get in touch if you have any questions or issues!
I wouldn't pull money from a retirement account for toys if it was gonna get taxed in a higher bracket, but short of that there's no reason not to pull it out of there. It's an investment account like any other.
My plan is the same as my current approach: I set aside a certain percentage of my income to spend as I see fit. I'll withdraw a certain amount over my basic CoL during good times to spend however I want. During market downturns I'll lean on the built up flex account for any toys I want and keep my withdrawals to a minimum. I'll probably lean on savings during downturns as much as possible and replenish them once the market turns back around.
Hi there! It sounds like you're taking the right steps towards growing your business. Finding the right employees can be hard but it doesn't have to be expensive. Have you looked into sites such as HireMyMom or FlexJobs that specialize in remote work? They have a lot of talented individuals that you can hire for a fraction of the cost. Good luck!
I worked at Wendy’s for a couple months in high school. Shit was hard and customers are annoying. But DQ pays a lot more than Wendy’s so maybe that’ll help. Try looking for an Amazon flex shift. 19hrs a week and you choose when you work
No problem! I’m salary as well, but salary non-exempt.
Other things I’d want to know about:
Is commute to site (or wherever you are expected that day) part of your 8 hour shift? Are meals covered when you are on the road?
How much overnight travel is expected? What’s the coverage area you are expected to travel? Can you choose to stay overnight if you’ve worked late or are tired? How far do you need to drive before overnight stays are approved? (For context my company says ~90 mins one way but it is at our discretion if we want to book a hotel)
Are you on a per diem basis? Does that include hotel?
How and when are you reimbursed? What are the requirements for reimbursement? (I’ve heard a lot of horror stories about companies trying to screw their employees when it comes to being reimbursed…)
I’d also ask for the ‘flex’ in writing including the policy and what specifically that means. That is a decent balance to not getting paid OT, but is it really your time (like PTO) when you ‘flex’ or are you still expected to work if necessary?
You could even ask how many hours the person you’re replacing (or someone else doing the same role) works a week, how much is overnight, etc. If you have the chance talk to someone who’s in the role now. You’ll get a lot of good insight.
I don’t think I’d do the job without the overtime… But a 20k+ pay bump is super nice… do the job for 6-12 months then move on expecting 90k or more in compensation from the next employer.
Also, if you are doing overnight travel, stick to one chain. Hilton, holiday inn, whatever. Get the branded credit card too to double the points. Just rack up the points if possible. I haven’t had to pay out of pocket for a hotel on our vacations in 3 years now.
Thank you for sharing this. What I'm taking from most perspectives is that the mileage will cover most of the expenses that I have in terms of wear and tear on my car, but this job does not give over time. Strictly salary. One of the hiring managers kept emphasizing to me that I'd need to be "flexible" as I'd have to sometimes do things when clients needed me and that it could be after hours, but that I'd be able to flex the next day to makeup for that? I agree that the round trips will add up. Time is my biggest asset. I will ask them about covering my vehicle's insurance.
The new flex for young kids is putting everything into a nice car, then crying when breaks since they can't afford to fix it.
I’m not sure it taking 22 years to reach 62% voting participation is the flex you think it is….
Well for comparison, I make $52.74/hr and we have yearly raises of $1,1,1,1,2,2,2 over the 7 years of our contract. So $0.94 is a fair raise I'd say. Sorry not trying to soft flex, just stating your raise was almost as much. I'm old and have a long work history.
Ive been a flushable wipes kinda guy since most of you were still shitting your pants...weird flex I know
Man, that feels almost absurdly conservative. 55k travel budget is like 7, fairly baller, spontaneous level pricing, 2 week long, international trips a year.
I'm making some assumption (largest one being no kids) but 3k for 2 tickets 200/day 2800 total for lodging 150/day 2100 total for food 500 for misc/transportation
That's 8400 per trip. 55k of flex is 6.5 trips. Booking anything in advance should lower those costs drastically, and if you wanted to scrimp some or strategically choose cheaper locations first you could lower the spend to heqd off sequence of return risks prerty significantly while traveling even more I'd wager.
Combo that with a 3% conservative draw and 2 years expenses in cash as well and it makes me wonder how many prime years you're sacrificing to make it almost 0 risk.
Not judging, as this was my mindset not terribly long ago, more curious as to whats keeping you in such a timid plan?
I think you are on the money. Things you might want to consider along the way would be things like
- taxes wherever you are landing? Most countries are taxing dividends/cap gains while most sites are based on 0% in USA.
- how much flex do your expenses have? Can you easily go down to 3% if there's a big market drop?
- can you pick up a job in your field easily if things are going really bad? (Higher risk tolerance)
- house along the way? Personally we are looking at a $500k move to buy into our intended fire city, but that cost fluctuates with the housing market.
All in all, congrats, you made it to the "boring middle". Make sure you have fun and build towards the life you want to have.
Yeah I guess it wasn't as obvious as is trying to flex it was from the title lol
He's trying to pull an Alpha move on you bro....quick do the Hulk Flex and growl super loud!
>Reading research papers always makes me feel like an idiot
It's by design. Academics purposefully write in a dense, jargon filled style as a flex
>Well, you go tell the Brazilians their auto industry is wrong and they should go back to fossil fuels. > >Besides, who says a car has to run on an ICE? Fuel cells are an option. They’re probably the way to go in the future. Far less moving parts, and much lower maintenance costs.
They do go back to fossil fuels when its cold outside or when petrol is more cost effective. That's because ethenol is low energy compared to petrol. That means less power, less range, difficult cold starts and honestly, the vehicles are shit compared to their ICE counterparts.
So let’s lay this out.
Right now under this scenario the base is basically $36/hr.
The ‘extra’ is 6 hours a week for 52 weeks.
That’s 312 hours @ $35,000 = $122/hr for the extra work.
You’d have to work 972 hours at your regular rate to make the equivalent. That’s 18 hours per week.
You’re ‘working’ 1/3rd of that time.
Time is money. Money is time.
Now that’s just the math.
It votes to do it.
What’s that extra time and inconvenience worth to you? That’s something you and your wife will have to work out. You two NEED to be on the same page with this. It will get hard. It’s going to suck. Know that going into it.
Personally, I’d probably do it with the thought that I could pay for either the kids or future time by retiring earlier.
Now the details?
I live in New England and drove my car ~35,000 miles a year for work. That’s an average of 90 miles per day, every day of the year. You have to like your car. It has to be reliable and comfortable. I suggest an AWD in the realm of a Toyota RAV 4 or better. My car of choice is a BMW X5. I can put 600 miles a day in it and do it again the next day. (BTW, that’s 1 tank of fuel).
Make sure those days in the office are flex days.
Friday one week, Monday the next and then you’ll have a big gap until you have to go in again. Then next month you may want it to be every Wednesday. If you’re flexible with it your schedule can change when needed and you won’t get burned out in a routine.
Good luck. Keep us posted.
Ewww… no. It’s a 2006, okay. And it’s beautiful. Low miles for the year and the body and interior are flawless. Way too beautiful to be where she’s at now. But yes, I will clean my 2006 mustang just to flex on people.
you are def one of those guys that spends saturdays washing their 98 mustang in the driveway trying to flex with it arent you
Always blows my mind knowing these guys retired their great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grand childrens' children's children's children that can live HIGH 6 figure lifestyles off literally yearly interest, and they're still out here being Dbags trying to screw people out of money and trying to fuck with the stock market lol.
My guy, you can quite literally just sit on a yacht and travel the world off just interest giving 0 fucks. Why are you trying to flex your PEE PEE on the stock market/business?
I'll keep it simple. Let me walk you through our Donnelly nut spacing and crack system rim riding grip configuration. Using a field of half C sprats and brass fitted nickel slits, our bracketed caps and splay-flexed brace columns vent dampers, to dampening hatch depths of 1 half meter from the damper crown, to the spurve plinth.
Well, we bolster TWELVE husk nuts to each girdle-Jerry. While flex tandems press a task apparatus of ten vertically composited patch hampeners. Then, pin-flam-fastened pan traps fastened at BOTH maiden apexes of the Jim-joints.
A little something like that?
I've done this a few times with any flex fuel vehicle I have but most recently when I borrowed my dad's GMC Yukon that takes E85. I filled it up I averaged right around 14mpg combined in rwd. I live in the city but do a fair amount of highway driving for my second job (40 miles of highway driving round trip and 2 city miles). When I filled up the tank with regular 87 I got just under 18 combined in rwd.
Even accounting for the price difference I'd rather just use regular because the ethanol just burns so fast it seems.

I made this choice back in 2006. I have an average of 90 minutes door to desk each way. Factors in my decision:
- I have a larger family (4 kids) so more rooms, bathrooms, square footage is a premium for us. We found that being in the next county over afforded us what we wanted/needed.
- Area we chose has great schools K-12 - we live within 1 mi of all of our kids schools
- There are multiple options (bus or train) to commute with regular schedules - don't underestimate the savings of taking mass transit for longer trips. It can be in the thousands per year in saved fuel, vehicle maintenance, and KBB value for vehicle with lower mileage.
- Work pays for commuter pass
How I manage it:
- I avoid driving it if at all possible - i HATE driving it even if I listen to a book or podcasts. I only drive in if I have something going on that evening nearer where I work.
- I use the ~3 hours of commute time as flex time: work, email, reading, watching a show, sleeping, gaming, etc. Whatever I feel I need to do to manage my time and/or relax.
- I try to get in early and leave early. 8am-4pm day is ideal so I miss the worst of traffic. 7:30am-3:30pm is even better but harder to maintain.
- I don't commute in 5 days a week. Even before the pandemic, I told my boss I was done doing that 5 days a week and that I'd WFH Fridays. During pandemic I was entirely remote but I've been 3 days in office for the past year or so. Man, traffic was great when y'all were working from home. I'll be commuting more regular now but won't be 5 days a week
- I look at my schedule and if I'll just be on Zoom calls with remote people, I don't go in. That's less rare since a core group of us show up in the office now - which I rather enjoy
Tell roommate to hop on DoorDash, Uber eats, Instacart, Amazon flex ect. And get that money. Sell whatever he doesn’t need on eBay.
I didn't realize it has that flex. That's a big a difference.
You say that but there are different laws and people were not paying rent during covid. My question was simple to find out if I can just keep my mtm and you flex your rick and morty intellect here. Not everyone has the same experiences in life.
It sounds like the FIL is trying to flex his new found wealth and boost his ego via the grandkids with all of the things the OP has said the FIL mentioned wanting for the kids. He didn't say he wanted the kids to be able to follow their dreams. He talks about doing things he sees as being elite.

I’m glad the program will collect money for a year before having to pay out. There’s going to be no replacement for just putting the program out there and adjusting based on real world use.
Posting eggs in my fridge on IG to flex on these hoes
Seller financing can be very attractive for a business like this because they aren’t necessarily easy to sell. Most times you are just buying a job (unless you are very successful). In other words, it’s likely to only be people willing to do the work running/teaching at the studio who will buy it, not a traditional investor. This greatly limits your options as the seller. The profit potential just isn’t worth the headaches once you pay the bills and staff. But, it can be great opportunity for some like your SO to increase their wage, secure more consistency, flex their ideas, build a reputation, etc.
Anyway, seller financing can make sense if the seller is open to it. I don’t know for sure, but I imagine this is common in the industry. The biggest negative that I foresee is a previous owner that has difficulty with letting go and holds the loan over your head. Particularly someone you know you won’t get along with. Something to think about.
Revitalizing a studio that needs a breath of fresh air may be the least risky option and may give you the customer base you need to get started. Of course, the price needs to make sense and people who build a business with blood, sweat, and tears often overvalue their life’s work.
Tesla calculates their per vehicle profit differently than other auto companies. They deliberately juice that number then throw it out like some kind of flex.
Bro, please give your family something nicer than an air mattress to sleep on, that is not the flex you think it is. You should be stepping up and taking care of your loved ones, you keep saying how grateful you are for their help in getting you where you are but you don't even step up to improve their living situation. Take action to show your gratitude.
A subtle flex on how great he was with numbers, churning out calculations and projections in the millions from the top of his head as easy as counting to 10. Really underpinned the sheer stupidity of the firm for firing him. Literally saves their ass by passing on his model.
Sure! I’m realizing I took my Citi Flex Loan a month too late: Markets went ~30% in Jan. Will this bull trend continue before the recession counters Fed’s interest rates— in other words hype about inflation? No way are earnings increasing thanks to Fed efforts.
Good! Stop spending on shit you can't afford and stop try to flex to people that don't give a shit about your live
Giga Chad. Flex on them CVNA hoes
Standardized equity options don't have flex contracts where you can specify the underlying size so you can't exercise just half a contract.
What you typically would do instead is to sell your put for the increase in value if the contract goes in the money.
The other way to do it is to pick a strike at a delta that is appropriate for the 50 shares that you want to protect. In that way, you are not paying a higher premium than necessary.
There are different ways to hedge - it's a bit more complicated if you are using an odd lot size - but it's possible.
Are you saying that house was a bad buy? It’s not exactly something to “flex” like a car or jewelry. And with the past low interest rates, it’s a hedge against inflation and rising rent prices. Not to mention appreciation in net worth
"What's a business I can run with $0 capital and 1 hr/week that can net me $2000 weekly income?"
I partly blame the financial "gurus" on Tiktok, Insta, and Youtube that flex the rented Lamborghini and mansion and say you can achieve it if you buy their $1000 course. Everyone and their mom had an Amazon FBA store, day-trading setup, real-estate portfolio, crypto algorithm, etc.
Lowering the attention span and raising the envy/greed = lots of disappointment and wasted time.
The fact of the matter is, if you want something with good margins and sustainable ROI, you're going to have to put in a ton of work. Researching, prospecting, managing, following up, cold-calling, and partnering. All for the slim chance that it works out.
There is no get rich quick. There is no shortcut. People want the quick dopamine hit "If I just did X, I WILL be rich!"
With TC like that it seems like you’re doing something right. If they will not flex at all, it may be time for a new job. Or just flatly say that you’re not able to come in to the office, if they want to let you go they can haha
$30 for what, 40hrs+ a week? for 52 weeks this is $62,400.
negotiate with time. make the job $60k a year for 1408 hrs a year max (~$42.61/hr). pay out bi-weekly salaries of ~$2307. For working hours set a rule for no more than 32 hrs/wk for 44 weeks a year or 27 hrs/wk for 52 weeks. there is so much flex to this and it’s a great benefit to the employee. this could be x4 8hr shifts or x5 5.5hr shifts. work with the persons life not against it.
if new hires value their time more than corporate wage slave roles of 40+hr weeks then get creative and switch perspectives to valuing their lifestyle in exchange for high efficiency, focused labor. let them be masters of their defined role and of their time. don’t reward great work with additional work. restructure the business and toss the outrageously dated cost structures.
you just wanted to flex in this den of degenerates, didn't you. Swing trading for 0dte option gamblers lol.
If you happen to work in an office with lots of boomers who hunt and peck, I highly recommend getting a mechanical keyboard to flex your +100wpm skills.
yikes man, if shit triggered you that much maybe get off reddit. loved how you had to flex that youre (SOON) porscshe to one up the poors. good one man!
There isn’t. Anyone that suggests an Ab&b cut them out of your life. This is the kind of thing we used to do in the early 2000’s except we would use a hotel because it’s much cheaper. People doing Ab&b’s just want for flex and not actually party
