Absolute fact.

Gross.

I typically only wear underwear in my business casual clothes. I used to not wear them, but people were making me uncomfortable as I'd catch them looking at my crotch (I swear this is true). Oh, and I wear underwear when golfing because it gets hot out there.

That being said, I do use some clothing multiple times:
T-shirt around the house - 2 days unless I get sweaty or something.
PJ pants/shorts for around the house - a couple of days.
Towels - 3 uses (scientifically proven to be the correct amount...seriously.)
Jeans - A couple times.
Everything else once.

I used to wear nothing more than once or one day. I would wear exterior clothes multiple days if I'm not getting sweaty, now.

But, my flight was oversold. They offered me and $800 Amazon gift card and I took it. Flying home tomorrow

Happened again. Fortunately, this was just "fly home 3 hours later for $800" so Hell yeah.

It's a sucker move. Let it get to the point where they beat the shit out of you and drag you off the plane kicking and screaming, and go for the higher payday.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

They fixed it, and I didn't die on the flight, so good luck?

A friend of mine flies a billion miles a year, and has Delta Diamond(?) or whatever their highest tier is. turns out he can gift Gold status to a person each year, and he gave it to me this year.

Honestly, it's not quite as cool as it used to be, no lounge access, you board after Diamond + Comfort plus people, etc. But you can get unlimited upgrades if they are available, so we'll see how this works out.

Well, I got upgraded to First Class so that's kinda awesome.

Weird how poor everyone getting on after me looks.

I got upgraded again for Friday's flight. I'm going to have to buy nice clothes just to fit in.

Oooooo, I just got a Bain Capital sweater, that'll work.

I saw a blurb once... "If everyone in the room is wearing a suit, the guy in the t-shirt and jeans is probably the boss."

I've read that too, but I've never really seen it, except Steve Jobs. And then it was a turtleneck.

I'm often the only one at my work wearing shorts.
