On The Cost of Getting Strep Throat 2x in 1 Month

I went through this last year, only in the end they gave up and I suffered through without antibiotics. My fever finally broke and I was so happy to be sweating! I think we're definitely starting to see more antibiotic resistant strep. Luckily I didn't have the type that can give you scarlet fever so it wasn't dangerous, just miserable.

On Price Comparison Battle: Safeway vs. Trader Joe's vs. Costco vs. Casa Lucas

@Eric18 I'm pretty sure the added costs of that zipcar trip would actually make costco more expensive. Why is DC filled with myopic twits like you?

On President Obama's New College-Ranking System

I think this is a great idea. My fancy pants college thought that talking seriously about careers and debt and how to pay your own way after college was simply too gauche to consider. Anything that would make them take it seriously would be great.

On Living Securely in America

@stuffisthings I guess that does make sense, although that would drive up childcare costs because getting stuck in traffic on the beltway means paying big surcharges to your daycare. Depressing to think that even this pretty large number is underestimating the actual costs.

On Living Securely in America

Where on earth are they getting those housing costs?? It should be at least double that. Edit: Unless this is calculated on bare minimum standards where the children all share 1 bedroom?

On Let's Throw Some Money at Our Problems: July 2013 Check-In

Logan! You are so close to paying off that card! It seems weird to be proud of someone I don't know, but I definitely am.

On A Married Couple Discuss Tipping And Also The Probability That It Will Lead to Their Divorce

@polka dots vs stripes I tip if I'm being a pain, and always dump the change in if I paid in cash. I once worked at an icecream parlor in a small town where rich dads would bring in the entire little league team at once (so at least a dozen screaming children all wanting sundaes) and the would NEVER TIP. I knew a lot of these guys and knew exactly what car they drove and what they did for a living. I also knew they were assholes after that.
