I'm thinking of giving my poor coworker who is here as a contractor some money. Is that weird?
My heart says fellowship, but my brain says job; I'm afraid that when I come back from the year abroad, my resume will seem out of date and I'll have to settle for underpaid admin work instead of this foothold into corporate management.
So, I basically built up a ridiculously amount of credit card debt when I moved to the city a few years ago and had to intern for six months earning next to nothing. I've been sloooowly paying it all down, but I have a credit card payment of $250ish due, well, tomorrow, and I don't have enough money to pay it.
It seems like the best thing to do would be to try to apply any extra payments towards the principal of the 9% interest rate loan before moving on to the other two lower interest loans. So, is this possible and if so, how do I do this? — J.
The PWWBMS wrote back confirming the receipt of the project and said they would be in touch in the next couple of weeks. Spoiler: They didn't! It has now been over four months and now I am kicking myself for not following up earlier on - maybe a month after PWWBMS's email.
What do you think? should I have been happy with that I received, or should I have tried to negotiate more? — A.
I looked up my credit score info, and apparently it's bad because of a $30 charge at Kohl's five or six years ago. I'm fairly sure I just received the card in the mail and tossed it, so I suspect someone found it and used it, but it doesn't really matter. I would just like to pay the debt and start building up my credit. But since the account is closed, how do I pay it off?
We broke up. The worse news is that we were five months into a year-long lease that's in both our names (neither of us is the primary person on the lease), and now we have to figure out how to talk to the landlords about what's going on, and convince them to let us either change the lease, or break it altogether.
I'm sort of at a crossroads in my career but also suffer from sever lack of hustle and financial anxiety.
I don't really feel like I can say no to the full-time job, which my boss very nicely put me up for, and, which is actually something I had planned on asking about the possibility of. But, I feel sort of taken advantage of that they want to pay me less to do the same job. WWYD? Get them to promise me a raise or something? — M.
