@stuffisthings One time I was considering changing cable companies, so I called them to set up an account, they immediately withdrew I think $175 from my bank account, then ran my address and said I wasn't in their service area, so they'd refund the money, and then it took literally 3 months to get that refund.
@stuffisthings oh that is pretty real.
Reverse: Where does the temporary extra money come from between when I make a Discover payment online but before the money leaves my bank balance, causing me to casually check Mint and think, "I'M RICH!" because my "net worth" appears to be $700 more than reality.
@CL He said she only comes once a week, so that could be like, 3-8 hours, or anywhere from $100 an hour to $37.50 an hour. I would like to know more about this! I think it's a great idea if it fits your lifestyle and budget (same for hiring someone to clean your house.)
@jfruh oh yeah I am also interested to know this! I assumed it was salary but not ingredients.
I mean, I have sympathy for this! Because if your idea of "rich" is that you can spend freely with no concern for running out of money ever, then, no, this guy isn't "rich." There are probably like 15 people in the entire world that, if this guy had their life, he would feel "rich." Everyone has problems. And if you, like this guy, think in terms of "rich" instead of "comfortable" or "financially secure" then I could definitely see how that leads to anxiety. And you're allowed to be anxious about your own situation without it necessarily meaning that you consider your problems equal to someone who is actually financially insecure.
@katiekate I live in Missouri, so...regional Bling Ring meetups?
Billfold Bling Ring group outing! And this has nothing to do with anything serious, but Emma Watson's accent in that trailer is outstanding.
@blair I think it has to do with the kind of fabric? And less about the cut. You know, black wool vs black satin. I mean I would definitely know a cocktail/non-work dress when I saw it but the rules are hard to pin down.
A+ "The Craft" reference.
