The vengeful feminist in me is glad to see dudes bearing the brunt of a Helen Lovejoy-style "Won't someone PLEASE think of the children?" argument. HA, HOW DO YOU LIKE IT, MEN?
@Glen Raphael@facebook Just piping in to add that Stats Canada stratifies household income by the size of the household- so you can compare "median household income for X number of people" across years. I presume the US would do that too.
Regardless of who is legally in the right here, every member of this family sounds pretty awful.
@LookUponMyWorks I love drinking (there is no subtle, refined way to write that) but wow, I would not want to do all-u-can-drink thing with my coworkers and boss. Even four drinks seems like a lot of drinks to have in front of one's boss.
@Cat Named Louise You MUST mean $120 jeans, right?!
@flickafly Also, if you buy the really timeless designer pieces, like the Chanel 2.55, you can always resell it and get a good chunk of your investment back. And if it's ever discontinued it will probably just gain value. So maybe it really is a good deal-- assuming you don't ruin it by spilling a Diet Coke inside like I've done with every bag I've ever owned.
Bright Yellow Pants at number 19 has a bulge that is verging on NSFW.
@WhyHelloThere I am definitely one of those weirdos who remembers how much literally everything I own cost, and when and where I bought it? But I generally have an excellent memory for numbers, like birthdays and credit cards, and a terrible memory for other things, like faces.
@Jake Reinhardt Okay but hasn't everyone had otherwise-neutral experiences or expenses sullied by a failed romantic relationship? Like, a tasty dinner is ruined if you eat it while on a shitty date. If the relationship had worked out I'm sure these costs wouldn't be regrettable. I regret every dime I spent while hanging out with dudes who turned out to the The Worst.
