These chats are my favorite part of the site! I missed it last week and wouldn't mind if there were more of them. The money posts are kind of meaningless to me without numbers... The more the better! But names add nothing for me and I wonder if people would be more forthcoming with anonymity assured. So I'm all for that. By the same token, I'd love for more meaningful numbers from Logan and Mike but since you are not anonymous, I understand. Especially on the debt payoff monthly reporting, I'd love to know total debt alongside the progress so that I can feel the anticipation of slowly or quickly getting there! I no longer have debt of any kind, and it's the one thing I miss...
It depends on the situation - how large your industry is, how petty your potential hiring company can be. If yours is an everyone-knows-everyone kind of field, you have to be very careful not to damage your reputation. If it's a large city with a starter/low-rank job then you don't want to risk your bird in the hand. Personally, I would err on the side of not telling them and the possibility that it might affect (maybe needlessly) their perception of your 'loyalty'. If the second job results in an offer that you want to take, then don't lose your cool, be SUPER professional and apologetic IN PERSON - "I'm sorry, I know this is an inconvenience but I've received an unanticipated job offer that I cannot turn down financially." (You didn't know you'd be offered the job when you took the interview, you don't have to give details about the interview.) Offer as much notice as your new company will allow (new company should be understanding and appreciate your ethics - otherwise it's a warning sign). If you love the old company, tell them you'd rather stay if there was a full time job you could work at. Act sad. If they act like jerks, they'd probably act like jerks after spending so much time interviewing you.
I doubt the credit monitoring that Adobe is offering has the same 'we renew you automagically' that your previous outfit had. After all, it's not like you're giving them payment info that they're authorized to charge
With Mike - 20k is not going to change my life, it would probably just go into savings. With Logan - I sometimes fantasize about winning a lottery (which would be a major miracle, since I don't buy lottery tickets).
Republicans are in the terrifying situation where if people actually like health care, they'll be blamed for a long time for opposing it with fud.
Hey, loading the site just prompted me (twice, repeated to confirm) to download analytics.js from a.sitemeter.com... Pretty sure that's not supposed to happen.
Having actual emotions must be rough... excise those suckers! /vulcan sympathy oxymoron
I do have my own website... It has done nothing for me except explain to people thisiswhyimfat. No ads, no income, only hosting costs. But I enjoy having it anyway (I think I posted it once here on a food post and it was removed as spam, which is fine - I actually pay by the bandwidth and since there's no income/ads, I wouldn't WANT it to become popular!)
Other than the environment, the worst part of this is the value proposition. These things make lousy coffee at sky-high prices. Instead of a machine, get a $30(?) aeropress. For the prices of the capsules, you can get premium coffee (or save money and get regular coffee that will still taste better).
