@EA_Mann Me too. Me too, me too. Now I feel all alone when I buy things the day before payday on my credit card.
@annecara Can you anonymously write a piece about this for The Billfold? What qualifies as emotional abuse? I feel like we'd all love to compare our situations to yours. And good for you for actually doing something about it, which must be a hard thing to do.
Did someone say Logan!?!?!? Would love a nice, long Logan update about the difference a job makes. What's up with her finances? Is this rude? Asking this is the whole point, right?
I can't even begin to write what my fantasies are, there are so many things I'd change. Let's just say I wish part-time work was enough so I could be a dog walker. Or just 6-hour work day, and I'm allowed to pop out for a walk whenever I want.
@HelloTheFuture Right, instead of "Please give us every single thing you have and be here all the time, ALL THE TIME. You may have a 4% raise in 18 months, and then we'll just assume you're good as is forever, k?"
Ok but what did the hosts say about you in the review!?!?
@Ester Bloom Well, you're doing fine. What I get for minor mistakes is my boss staring at me and saying,in front of other people, "Is there different way you could have handled that?"
MIKE DANG DOESN'T BRING A LUNCH TO WORK!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Ughhhhh I really want to read this but I'm 1/3 of the way through and I am very close to puking. Ughhh. Don't puke at work, don't puke at work, finish reading, don't read stuff at work, don't puke at work.
I like this and would love more detail. I'm so sick of hearing about people who get a second job to pay down debt. I'm tired of the extreme debt reduction stories. I would like to read something like "I'm really stressed out at my full-time job, there is no way I can handle another job. I have to exercise and walk my dog and cook meals so I don't spend money on lunch. So I paid my debt off with one income." That is my life story in the future (debt repayment isn't done yet) but can someone please write that now? Inspire me!
