On Five Women
Please keep writing. This was fantastic and I must have teared up and sent it to at least all of my friends who've worked in the food industry and have Cheryls and Sandys of their own.

@Olivia2.0 Probably because it's Tumblr, and not just some random startup. To which I say, good on Meaghan! I think a lot of the writers here are bashful about money in all contexts, (the haves, the have-nots) and frankly given the fact that a lot of the content is aimed at a younger not quite with-it demographic, not totally unexpected.
@astauff Yeah! I want this opportunity to come my way please.
Just read this entire post with my shoulders hunched up to my ears, teeth grit, whispering 'no no no no no no...'
From $500 to $5k in 20 years. Loved the scope of this one. Very jealous of Myrtle St house.
This exchange was great! Sometimes I worry about all the posts you see on sites (not necessarily here) about demanding friends who don't understand people making le$$.
" but then I’ll think of him with his sad wrinkled dress shirts that he is somehow blind to" THIS. I have infinitely (it feels like) more work-clothes options than my boyfriend strictly because my office is so lax about its dress code.
