On Lunch Spots and Budgets

@francesfrances If you divide the amount I've spent on lunch with the number of work days this month, I've spent less than $3 a day on lunch, so I think I'm doing? Also, there has definitely been a regime change, and I only buy coffee occasionally now. :)

On How A Person With a Five-Figure Income Buys an Apartment in New York City

@rhinoceranita I'm on my own financially, and am working on paying off student loans. But instead of trying to buy myself a house, I'm trying to help my parents pay off theirs.

On How A Person With a Five-Figure Income Buys an Apartment in New York City

@pengu1n The feature before this was about someone moving their life in Canada, our feature yesterday was about someone having a near-death experience and changing jobs while living in Athens, Georgia, and our feature on Friday was about a student living in San Luis Obispo, Calif. trying to figure out how to pay for college after her parents cut her off. We're not New York all the time, I swear.

On Working in the Fast Food Industry for a Minimum of $20 an Hour

Yes, you've already made this argument before, and I presented you with data from the BLS showing that despite self-checkout registers being introduced in supermarkets a decade ago, it hasn't caused a decrease in cashier jobs. Further, studies have shown that people prefer checking out with a real cashier over self-checkout. Finally, a burger chain like In-N-Out pays their workers a starting rate of more than $10 an hour—well above the minimum wage, as well as offering employees a retirement plan. In-N-Out's president has an estimated wealth of $500 million dollars, according to Forbes. Half a billion dollars. You can pay workers a decent wage and still be filthy rich.

On Reconsidering a Living Situation

Yes, that is the question, though I would be flying here every month for meetings. Also I lived in Queens for four years for dirt cheap and could always move back if I felt like it. I like my apartment now because I live two blocks from four of my closest friends (I find value in that), and my landlord hasn't raised my rent in three years.

Hah, they taped while I was at work, but they took pictures of him hanging out in my kitchen and sent them to me.
