@RiffRandell Ptui! I clicked through on your recommendation and the photo for NJ was Chris Christie! Why couldn't it be a diner?! Or Satriale's Pork Store? Whyyyyyyyyy...
And this person sounds like a super-saver! Maxing out 401(k) + maxing out Roth IRA = $23,500 that he/she is putting into retirement this year, on a modest salary. This person's "financial responsibility" box is more than checked.
My husband and I both bought term life insurance policies when we had a kid. It makes me feel really good at adulting to know that my son will be financially okay (better off, even, from one gross perspective) if something terrible happens. We don't, however, have long-term disability or long-term care insurance. Which we should probably have.
@LookUponMyWorks Yup! They claim it's because older people make more money than younger people. Which... *some* older people make more money than *some* younger people. That is true.
@gyip It's $20 for people over 30, less for people in their 20s... (sad trombone)

@Allison I think the fish help you keep it neat. Or at least perfectly flowy.
@Erica Who says there are no consequences? I was expected to clean the bathrooms before I did anything fun on Saturday and if I didn't I got a talking-to. But it was disconnected from my allowance.
@Ester Bloom It is one of those words that seems like it should mean the opposite of what it does!
This was very funny! But you are actually the opposite of a spendthrift.
