"Half the things on this website are about trying to be a writer." Indeed. :/
We ended up having one installed for the sole purpose of buzzing people into our condo building. If we attached one person's cell to the door buzzer- the other roommates cannot let guests in.
@thecoffeestain Yes! "Although, isn't that writing that you spoke of what TheBillfold is all about?" This is exactly what I thought. Somewhere down the line the posts with the attitude of "yes, we can do this!" (Throw money at our problems, Do 1 thing posts) turned into just posts upon posts about why we are screwed.
i don't understand why these three items are linked together in this post? because education?
@aetataureate yes! this is the first thing i thought of!
joki = slug in DC. Though slugs aren't paid, they get a free commute by agreeing to ride with someone who wants to join the carpool lane.
I grew up in a tiny 3 bedroom house with an older brother and sister. As they were waiting for me to be born they assumed whomever had the "matching" sex with the new baby would have to share the room. Surprise! My parents put them together and I got a nursery to myself. As we grew older, we switched the arrangement, but I think this had more to do with which personalities could share a room without killing each other. Also- my parents were kind enough to give the master bedroom to the kids sharing a room figuring the more space the better when sharing tight quarters.
There's a lot of boat anger here? I don't get it. In DC, houseboats are one of the few affordable housing options downtown.
host/hostess gifts: coffee or tea! they always seems to go over well.
I'm interested in how an organization set up like this would fire people who were incompetent? Is this a group decision? That would be nightmarish. If the lead link does not have the ability to tell people what to do, I feel like the "weak link" would get by easily.
