@stuffisthings Is it weird that I clicked this article mostly to hear whatever meta-economic commentary you would have for me, complete with links and fabulous inflation-adjusted numbers? You are a tease.
@swampette@twitter Let's also remember that toll booth operators are public employees who get better pay and benefits than they would receive in a comparable customer service position in the private sector. They are paid handsomely for being bored all day. (Not that there's anything wrong with being paid a living wage or receiving benefits, it's just that if I know you have a pension plan and you're earning roughly the same hourly wage as me, and you still try to steal my $.40, I am less likely to cut you slack.)
Reason #1 to go to Five Guys: bacon egg and cheese breakfast sandwich (preferably with tomatoes, grilled onions, and jalapenos). TOP THAT SHIT IN-N-OUT.
@vicky austin I have to admit that I don't "get" Shake Shack. It's the cost of a Five Guys burger with In-And-Out quality. 5GUYS4EVA
This is exactly why I don't own a printer. My last attempt at installation ended in tears.
You will pry color-coding from my cold, dead hands.
Those are some big, big ifs. /hates Siri
I'm sorry all I heard was chicken wings.
@julebsorry I'm not talking about morality here (my morality talk is upthread). If someone wants to make a personal choice to destroy their present moment (or years of their life) in an obsessive effort not to have debt in the future, that's their right. But I won't pretend to understand or empathize with their situation.
@deepomega I'd feel much worse paying 6 figures on 30,000 of consumer credit card debt than I would paying that amount for an education. I'm old-fashioned in that sense. Sure, I don't relish the idea of paying interest, but I will also never lose any sleep over it.
