The thing is... her email isn't even clever, funny or terribly amusing. I can imagine she must have been real pain in the ass to work with.
@Kthompson I am the same. Tattoo needles are not a problem... but I can't so much as watch someone get a shot on TV without hyperventilating.
I live in England, so no, I am not familiar with this practice.
Hold on a minute. So there are people who don't partake in "workplace Internet leisure browsing”? Who are these people and what are they doing at work all day long?
@cmcm I have not made payments every single month... so perhaps you have hit the nail on the head...
@sea ermine Unfortunately sending a check isn't an option as I live in the UK, so it's already a pain in the ass enough figuring out how to send payments for these things.
@EA_Mann All my loans are deferred because I'm a student, but the PLUS loan is still accruing interest (8.6%) and the Stafford Graduate loan is accruing interest on the non-subsidized part of it (6.8%). So the 200-300 I'm paying, I pay whatever it says the accrued interest is for the lower one, and then bonk the rest over to the higher one.
OH this seems like a place I can ask a question that I've been super confused about for awhile. My student loans are currently deferred while I'm doing my PhD, but my two loans from my masters are still accruing some interest (a proportion of my Stafford Graduate loan, and the full interest on my PLUS loan), which they've told me comes to a total of about $181 a month. I've been making payments of at least $200-300 each month in the hopes that I can chop away at the principal, but when I look online it says that each of these payments has gone entirely to interest. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? I feel like I'm just throwing money into the wind and hoping it sticks to my loan.
Today I realised that I could be a much better person than I have been.
Only if you consider minimum wage (£6.30) "decent" are delivery people in Britain paid a decent wage.
