Were you automatically included in the class action lawsuit, or did you have to opt in? I have paid overdraft fees to B of A as well, but have not heard of this case.
So her husband got into a "great PhD program" that was not funded at all? Doesn't sound that great to me. But they made it work, so I guess it turned out okay. I generally tell undergrads who ask me for advice to not consider unfunded PhD programs.
Noooooooooooooooooooooooo! Total anti-climax.
@garysixpack It depends on when you graduate moreso than your age per se. The longer you've been on the market, the less attractive you look to committees. Often unfair, but true.
@Allison Yes, or there could be other reasons, like family living nearby that provides child-care. If they move away, paying for childcare might offset any gains in cost of living, etc... We don't know their situation.
It's also really hard to find one that doesn't have plastic on the inside. Many of the metal ones have a translucent plastic strip on one side to show the water level, for instance. I didn't need the temperature control aspect so I ended up getting a $25 dollar Chefmate which has plastic only in the inside of the top lid, so at least the water doesn't touch it. I have been very happy with it so far.
These kind of ads are what finally pushed me to install ad-block. I found it creepy, and as someone else mentioned it can ruin surprises when your SO sees what you have been searching for. Also, usually when I am looking online it is just a fantasy thing, and I don't want to be reminded of the things I am not going to buy. Facebook is so refreshing without ads. You guys should try it.
The La Adelita food truck has amazing fried flour tortilla chips. http://www.adelitatruck.com/
@stuffisthings I came here to post this very same thing!
Man, I find it strange that the friend didn't notify you up front about the nature of this meal. Like, "Hey you are also welcome to join us for dinner but it will be pretty expensive per head so I understand if that is too much of a commitment." What if you hadn't googled it and had just assumed it was a normal-fancy restaurant. WHAT THEN?
