On Trying to Pay Off Debt and Falling Off the Wagon (As We Do Sometimes)

@garli I do the same thing... although due to some bank promos it's all over the place right now.

On Trying to Pay Off Debt and Falling Off the Wagon (As We Do Sometimes)

@ThatJenn Chiming in to say that I always love the analogy between debt and weight. I'm good with money, but if spending it felt the same way that eating does, I'd be absolutely helpless. I know exactly what I need to do with money and food. And yet, I can't actually DO it with food.

On Trying to Pay Off Debt and Falling Off the Wagon (As We Do Sometimes)

@lisaf As an easy (?) alternative... might I suggest deducting the extra money from your pay and stashing it somewhere else? Pretend that it doesn't exist? At least that wouldn't depend on old numbers/history... fresh start! You wouldn't even have to stash ALL of it...

On Trying to Pay Off Debt and Falling Off the Wagon (As We Do Sometimes)

I loooooove hearing from Logan, whether good news or bad. And Mike, you sound just like me when I'm trying my damnedest not to be a logic monster. (Which lately I've been failing at. If logic isn't going to work, it's not logical to use it right? I'm having trouble with that.) This is my favorite kind of chat: Focused and about an issue. So great.

On Is There a Class Component to Catcalls

I think it's non-intuitive for men to realize how threatening such behavior is (although overt assholery is just inexcusable, did these people not have role models?). I've only been, um, spontaneously solicited? a few times in my life and because I didn't feel threatened, I was gratified - though completely uninterested and incredulous (ie, me? really?). There's no excuse for not learning, however. Or taking a f-ing hint.

On Working in the Fast Food Industry for a Minimum of $20 an Hour

@Mike Dang it also really depends on the self checkout implementation. Most are horrible. If I have to press a whole bunch of buttons before and after scanning then it's faster to use a cashier. Scan barcodes press pay... I'm there. Regardless. I'm in favor of living wages.

On Love and Nostagia for the Cheaper Stuff

@Chris H. Honestly, adding stuff is the only way to make KD really taste good (other than nostalgia). Tuna would work just fine. (I remember a Hamburger Helper recipe with a can of tuna that I made for kids I was babysitting and it was actually pretty good!)
