On On Banning 'Bossy'

@@fo uuum, your child would definitely be devastated also if she learned that you thought she was a pain in the ass, but guess what? She won't. Because you have written these thoughts on the internet, where she cannot access them; and anonymously, so she never will be able to. Also - little secret - it is actually true that no one likes domineering and uncooperative children. I also like to tell everyone what to do, but know that I cannot. Maybe use this knowledge in socialising your daughter (while ensuring she retains her executive leadership skills, because those are awesome!).

On Living Without Credit Cards

@highjump I'm five grand in debt and this statement didn't bother me, because before I was five grand in debt I couldn't have imagined being so. I don't think it deserves your snark.

On The Answer to Getting Out of Credit Card Trouble: A Spreadsheet

@aetataureate It is true that Billfolders tend to pile on, and this particular set of comments contains even less positivity than normal (which is normally very low).

On The Answer to Getting Out of Credit Card Trouble: A Spreadsheet

I just saw from Zach's twitter that he is discouraged by the comments he is getting here so I came back to say, I made a spreadsheet this morning which maps out me paying back my $5,000 CC debt in four months! Thanks for the inspiration!
