  • Vacationing in Europe while Republicans face cash problems and rough headlines about their midterm chances could further hurt his standing with his GOP colleagues.

The big picture: Scott has been taking heat from Republican detractors who have criticized his job of recruiting strong candidates and managing the committee’s spending this cycle.

  • Republican candidates are underperforming across the Senate landscape. Trump-endorsed nominees

TravelersTravelers features an icky, insidiously intelligent form of going undercover: agents from 100 years sooner or later take up residence in folks residing in the current’s bodies.

‘There is nothing you can ever do to make her happy’

A man doesn’t know how to handle his girlfriend’s response to him going on vacation.

He asked Reddit’s “Relationship Advice” forums for help. His girlfriend doesn’t want him to go on an 11-day vacation without her. She insisted it was because she would be completely alone without him. But he doesn’t think that’s his problem.

“My (25F) girlfriend is crazy mad at me(24M) because I’m going on vacation with my group of friends,” he wrote. “Some of them are even bringing their girlfriends but mine isn’t going because she can’t take vacations at work.”

The girlfriend is upset because she would be alone for 11 days, doesn’t have any friends in her area and he won’t be able to text her all day. She’s also fuming because he’s the only guy who isn’t bringing his girlfriend.

Take a buffer day at the end of your next vacation

Welcome to The Upgrade, By The Way’s new series on travel hacks and hot takes. See how to submit here.

The way I traveled in my 30s is much different from the way I traveled in my 20s.

Living in Phoenix right after college, I became intimately familiar with red-eye flights back home to Ohio, often taking one Sunday and rolling straight into work Monday morning, without even stopping at my apartment. Taking those flights accomplished two very important things at the time — scoring the cheapest flight possible and squeezing every last minute out of a trip.

Here, a tour through the various complaints registered by the part-time residents and full-time locals of some of the country’s most expensive Zip Codes.

Nantucket is the New England destination for rich people who love whaling culture (aesthetically) and having generational wealth that dates back further than their peers. Now, it’s being destroyed by young TikTok influencers who have discovered the island, according to at least one somewhat thin New York Post story, as a place to live out their “coastal grandmother” fantasies, upsetting some locals who share their taste.
