Unfortunately no one has answer as to why this family hung up their Christmas lights before Thanksgiving Not sure why that would be an issue, Australia doesn’t celebrate American Thanksgiving.
@Laurabean My personal best 5k time is from a race where they handed you a beer as you crossed the finish line.
Please tell us (me) more about fennel preparation!
This just happened to me! The Fraud Department at my bank thought it was weird that there was a $93 charge at a gas station in Georgia between beer purchases at a baseball game in DC. That was weird, Fraud Dept. Good catch.
It really sounds like this guy was watching people using regular old debit cards and putting in their PINs.
I always mentally append “…and my credit card and my rent and my car insurance and and and…” but I’m also a bitter person whose parents help with nothing. Most of the time I think it’s just that the parents have the kids on a cell phone plan and it’s just easier (or cheaper!) not to change it from when they were in high school.
I think this article would have been a lot more effective had it proposed solutions. Instead, it reads as just the writer pumping herself up at the expense of her friends. Personally, I hold that a financial planning class should be mandatory in high school. I don't foresee college costs being regulated any time soon, so the students should be prepared to deal with the realities of money management.
Margaret Sullivan was pretty much the only good thing about the Buffalo News when she was their editor. NYT is lucky to have her.
@katieeitak Based on the other comments, it sounds like this is something Pret is fine with. But even if that wasn't as clearly the case, Logan isn't stupid. A message saying that an employee "went out of her way and made [Logan's] day!" is still positive feedback without chancing the woman's job.
If you remember the employee’s name (or even just the time/day you were there), may I suggest you write a complimentary letter to management? Positive feedback goes a long way in that industry! Edit: there's a form you can fill out on their website.
