I ended up paying for parking at a hotel. Cheapest I could find. It's the little things like this that they dont tell you about when starting this job.

In order to come to work? No not really man. I dont stand in long lines at most airports for security when I show up for work now do I? Dont pay for plane tickets either when I commute or even if I'm vacationing alone.

Yeah contract says up to whatever they are paying at your domicile, so I have no clue what that actually is in places like DFW, might be enough if you live out in the sticks though. But some is better then none. Not as good as all though.

*in order to live out of base. You wouldnít have to pay to go work if you lived in base. Not trying to bash commuters but itís not the companyís problem you donít park where they have obtained parking for you.

I agree with what you said. If it wasn't for COVID-19 I would live in base sooner than later. No sense in doing it now if I'm gonna get furloughed.
