I know she's Oprah and all, but forreal, wouldn't having people sing while you're pooping make it a billion times worse?
My local library's already dissatisfying hours got cut last month, so that it's now only open 4-6 hours a day, 4 days a week. It's pretty difficult to get there to pick up my holds, and browsing is definitely a thing of the past. It's really frustrating for me and disheartening that this is all they can fund.
At my very first job interview when I was 16, I was asked, "if you were a vegetable, which one would you be?" I laughed, almost walked out (because I was 16 and didn't really want to work there anyway), and then still got hired.
@stuffisthings yeah but who wants to use those? debit cards are the worst.
This feels like a really regressive move since /nobody/ carries cash anymore. And it's almost 2014 - why should we?
@Ambrrr nice! I was looking over there and I considered a duplex on Monroe, but the kitchen was kind of gross. It seems like there are a bunch of great places over there if you can time it right.
@Ambrrr Inman Park!
This is really interesting to me because I live in Atlanta and have been apartment hunting recently. Rent hasn't gone up around here nearly as much as I'd have expected in 15-20 years. My new place will be under $700 for my half of a 2bd place, which seems pretty average for safe, clean, washer dryer, and off-street parking (my necessities). If you're willing to sacrifice the laundry and maybe central a/c, it's pretty easy to find mid-90s rent.
@j a y The coffee I make at home is so much better than the coffee I make with the office Keurig, and I buy Target coffee (the free trade stuff is really good but I'm cheap and usually go with the regular kinds).
@Blondsak not even that, but bringing the minimum wage for servers who make tips up to the actual minimum wage alone would be a big improvement.
