Flying fast may be contrary to one’s wealth accumulation plan... especially if paid by the minute.

Exactly. What did Ben Franklin say? "A penny saved is a penny earned."

Really more like two pennies earned after accounting for taxes and other deductions from your pay.

Please FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, unless I ask to see it (which I won’t), NEVER try to hand me your phone and show me a picture or video of anything! (boat, kitchen/bathroom refurb, kids hockey game, etc.) There aren’t words enough to express how much I really, really, really don’t care.

Amen, preach it brother, preach!!!

I've had a guy show me multiple at-bats from his son while he "broke down" the kid's swing....mind you, this was T ball. I've had another guy show me photo after photo of the lumber that he was going to build his deck with....again, not the finished product, just piles of wood.

My new rule is you get to show me me one video and maybe 4 photos per 4 day trip.

Hey man, we're not always gonna win at the try to make conversion with a total stranger for 4 days game. You gotta give a little and take a little, and take a big one for the team.
