@seaermine This is absolutely my way of thinking. When I was working a full-time, salaried job, my per-hour averaged out to less than $13/hour. Now I'm in a part-time, grant-funded position and it comes out to about $21/hour. And I get to choose my own hours.
My cousin's bachelorette party is tmw night and I'm her MOH, so it's going to be a pricy weekend. Figure $80 for dinner at a ritzy steakhouse, $30 for drinks at her favorite karaoke bar, and $40 for a lap dance. Probably $30-$50 for cabs in between locations. Trying to keep it below $200.
I spent a solid six hours cleaning my studio apartment before I moved out. It was freaking spotless. Flash forward three weeks later, not only do I not get my security deposit back, I get a freaking BILL for $280. The rental sheet stated that the apartment was filthy and that I had destroyed the blinds. I know I should've asked for photos/taken it up in court, but I just didn't have the emotional energy to deal with it so I just paid them.
YOU GUYS! I have been waiting for April's check in all month.I was one of those kids who got busted for illegally downloading music in college. I settled, but couldn't pay after graduation so it got sent to collections, but it will be paid off completely as of April 30! After four years and 8k, I am finally (!) done!
I had a birthday drinks at a fancy-schmancy bar a few weeks ago and my brother pulled out a $100 bill and just left it on the table all night in full view of the waitress. It just felt totally gauche. I don't think I would've felt that way if it were a smaller bill.
Cheap weekend for me. I picked up some extra shifts at my second job so I won't have the opportunity to spend money either tonight or tomorrow. Sunday should just be $17.50 for a weekly bus pass and maybe $5 for snacks. Estimate- $25, which should be offset by tips this weekend (fingers crossed)
@Franny I use a lingerie bag. Two pairs per bag, run through the wash, air dry. My tights have lasted years.
@like a rabid squirrel I believe it's just if your account becomes super delinquent and they send it to collections. My old electric company sent me a notice that they were going to report my 90-days- past due account to the credit reporting agencies.
I think working from home is a privilege that needs to be earned. If you're a new hire to the company, why would you expect your boss to let you work off site when you haven't even proved that you can produce satisfactory work while in the office? Then again, my views on the whole subject are based off of my previous supervisor's experience. We didn't yet have an office in the city she was in, so she would commute twice a week and "work from home" for the rest of the time. She would maybe answer emails within a few hours and very rarely was her phone on.
I don't see why you just didn't stick it out for four more months and then not have to worry about it. You're not jumping to another job right away and you stated that you were on good terms. Would the extra few months really made that much of an impact on your future plans?
