I can't answer in a single word, but I can in two: unilateral benefit. Is that good enough?

comment A polite substitution for Charlie Foxtrot
@Sardathrion: You could always claim you thought these terms were abbreviations for "fouled up" (as many people often do) so to avoid the offending word.

@Yay: Demons come in many forms, I disagree with that being "too excessive." I think your suggestion would make a great answer, in fact.

comment Does “month ending January” mean the end of January, or the start?
@phoog: Per-month cycles that don't coincide with calendar months, such as utility bills, pay periods, account interest, and so on, are in fact commonly written as "month ending January 15." I don't find it odd at all. The OP's reports that lack a specific date, OTOH, are definitely odd.

comment Does “month ending January” mean the end of January, or the start?
I have never seen this use of "ending" without a specific date, such as "the fiscal year ending October 31, 2015" or the "month ending February 29, 2016." So if this is truly the case in your reports, I understand your confusion.

comment The feeling when a familiar object is missing or in a different place
I'm hesitant on whether or not this would make a good answer; you might call this withdrawal in the sense of definition 1.c.2. in M-W. This would be strictly metaphorical, however- couch-in-the-north-west-corner withdrawal doesn't have the same ring as heroin withdrawal.

comment Language school & language institute
For what it's worth, in my experience one might find both instruction in a subject and research on a subject happening at either a school or an institute. However, the institute places more emphasis on the research, sometimes even exclusively.
