On The Cost of an Ugly Christmas Sweater

@guenna77 Word. Plus the idea of a bunch of New Yorkers going out and spending $45 a year on these sweaters. It's an offensive idea on a lot of levels.

On Why Put Your Family Photos on Facebook When You can Put Them on the Moon?

The title of this reads like an Onion story about everybody with a baby photo where their Facebook profile picture should be, etc. in the vein of "I'll show you where you can put your baby photos."

On Is Your Boss Springing for a Holiday Party

SO TOPICAL BECAUSE my company has become small enough (in the sense that we're nimble and sustainable again so it's positive!) to have one large holiday party. It's also paid for, instead of previous department parties that were voluntary potlucks.

On A Life Without Retirement Savings

@Lily Rowan This comment will be curmudgeonly and I don't mean it about the person in this interview whom I obviously don't know, but in my public university program there are a dozen adjuncts who are not only terrible teachers but seem ill suited for ANY kind of work. Realtalk. If they told me they couldn't find other jobs, I'd absolutely believe it.

On A Life Without Retirement Savings

This is really bleak. Like you said, I assume her two grown children would get involved. Her statement that without a spouse or partner you're on your own is pretty emblematic of a poisonous 21st century mindset in that way. Which I say not to be curmudgeonly, I swear!
