On Did Your Parents Lie About Your Age To Get Lower Ticket Prices, And Did That Scar You For Life?

My father did this all the time! I specifically remember it happening at places where a reduced price ticket was given for children under 12 and obviously I was over 12, so I was well aware of it. I don't think it affected me much and I don't really remember having any feelings about it back then. But I probably wouldn't do it with my own children? I think it might make me (and especially my husband!) feel a little uncomfortable or nervous and we'd rather just pay a few extra dollars to avoid that feeling.

On Adult People Are Asking Other Adult People Their SAT Score in Job Interviews

This happened to me once years ago. I blabbered on about how I couldn't quite remember and then basically told the guy I didn't think I was a good fit for the job. It was a job that was sort of creative but also would involve using logic quite a bit, so that was his reason for asking, he said. Hasn't ever happened again, thank god!

On The Up Series, or The Latest Thing I Am Obsessed With That is Available on Netflix

In my opinion, it became so much more wonderful and sad and rewarding in the later installations (35 Up and beyond). The recapping gets to be less and less and actually I began to find it almost soothing. My favorites are Nick, Suzy, and Bruce, but I really enjoy them all.

On How Much Do You Spend on Cable/Internet Each Month?

In all of the categories so far I feel like my answers are always more expensive than everyone else's! This will be no exception. We have to have cable/internet/phone because it is cheaper than just cable/internet. Plus we just added HBO because of Game of Thrones, so I think we're up to about $140 a month, plus $7.99 for Netflix. This is split between two people.

On How Much Do You Spend on Electricity Each Month?

We are two people in a 1200 sq ft three bedroom house and ours ranges from $80 to $250 depending on the time of year. It's much higher in the summer when we use AC. In the winter we have gas heat so it's lower.

On How Much Do You Spend on Groceries Every Week?

It can be anywhere from $100 to $175 per week for us, depending on how many staples or expensive items we need to buy that week. We are two adults in a major metro area. This includes food for two cats, paper goods, and bird seed for the outdoor birds. This does not include alcohol, which we can't buy at the grocery store, or dog food, because we have to buy that special from the vet.

On WWYD: Free Chocolate! (In Exchange for Snitching)

@SarcasticFringehead YES. This happened to me and it was a nightmare. I worked at Victoria's Secret one summer and you were supposed to sign three people up for credit cards per 8-hour shift. Every single employee was supposed to do this, even though it was much much easier to sign people up for the cards while you were working the register. I worked the sales floor and they wouldn't train me on the register because I didn't sign enough people up for credit cards, and eventually cut my hours as well. NIGHTMARE. They made me sign myself up for a card one time to help meet my quota.
