@all the anti-cigarette people AM I THE ONLY SMOKER ON THE BILLFOLD???!
I just can't get behind this horrible, vapid little girl and her "success story". I read something the other day where Nancy Jo Sales rightly pointed out that this new version of Neiers (sober, new mother) is still very much inspired by the Hollywood fame-machine storyline of "party-girl-turned-saintlike-by-motherhood" bullshit.
@calamity ha, I think I need a profile pic!
@aetataureate Exactly. Actually, I don't even think living situations exist for that amount -- probably not even in the East Bay! I should also add that I don't have any debt, nor do I have a car, so rent/utilities/groceries are pretty much my only bills every month, so even though I pay around 40% (ouch!) on rent, I can still save a little bit each month and do basically whatever I want. It sounds like this person has quite a bit more going on, though.
I have never been able to pay 1/4 of my income on rent because I live in San Francisco. But you can definitely make this work! Try it out for a few months and get a roommate if it's not working out for you. You're gonna be fine.
@aeroaeroaero I should also note that my comment isn't really a pun, and I'm not even sure number 11 is an ostrich. Sorry I'm such a dodo, guys.
@stuffisthings number eleven is like "smh, you thought I said rich? I said ostrich" (SORRY THAT'S ALL I'VE GOT)
I can't stop chuckling about the Leech Gatherer, and that it's important that the Leech Gatherer carefully places the leeches in the basket. Like, you would so get fired as Leech Gatherer if you were just chucking them in, willy-nilly.
@aetataureate yeah this lawyer came across as kind of The Worst. I know several recent law grads that would be way better suited for an interview like this. Or maybe they should talk to Tuna Surprise? He/she seems chill, and not an arrogant asshole like the interviewee.
This kind of listicle bugs me about New Yorkers. As if anywhere else in the country needs to be explained in terms of NYC. It's so self-congratulatory and ugh.
