@MaxBraverman Yes! But also don't let the "So many people are in the same boat as me," be an excuse for not trying. I like the way your dad is pushing against your tendency to do that.
I'm so happy you brought this up. Read it this morning and couldn't help thinking what a complete SHAM she souncame off as. And that bought her a 3 bedroom apartment in Manhattan with a view on the Chrysler Building?! (Your headline should read: "Lie to Gullible Idiots; Parlay into Real Estate Heaven")
The main thing I have learned from WWYD here at The Billfold is that Mike Dang is a way better person than I am.
@stuffisthings No I can't quote the t&c of every site I visit or even my own lease, but I have access to both and if, for example, I was planning on subletting my apartment, my common sense might encourage me to glance at one or the other instead of blaming Airbnb for not personally sending someone over to read it to me.
By forget it i quit on Logan Saw a Dude Steal Some Coffee And Said Nothing And Mike Is Like, That's Wrong
This is why Dunkin Donuts always has cops hanging out there.

What the writer's mom did was unfathomable, but I don't understand why a cheaper, used car couldn't have been purchased to replace the Mazda? The writer even mentions that the value of the car depreciated in value as soon as she drove it off the lot, so, why not just take that money and purchase a car that's a year or two older? I just can't imagine trying to pay off law school as well as undergrad loans and credit card debt, and taking on 20K more in debt just to have a brand-new car.
This is a great example of how being nice to airline employees is in your best interest! (Be nice to everyone, of course.) But... standby lists absolutely can be manipulated. The usual reasons are airline status, fare class, or travel disruptions. I've been bumped to number one because, even on a cheap ticket without status, my incoming flight was delayed, etc etc. I probably would have pushed back a little on that front... and then been put on the bottom of the list as a consequence. Anyway. Lovely to see niceness working. And, yes, ask for things!
This is a ridiculous and poorly written post, and I'm honestly surprised The Billfold would run it. Are you trying to be "bipartisan" or something? For the author, you're brand new to a country and not a legal resident, and you had a hard time navigating their healthcare system-that sucks, and complaining about it is fair enough. But saying it's the worst thing ever and kills people? Grow up, guy.
A medical degree is the same whether you're working in the NHS or private practice. You didn't think your doctor was very good? I don't see what that has to do with paying for it or not. Better than paying thousands to see a bad doctor. Also, as other people said: if you were from the UK you would be registered at a practice, and they'd have your notes, so basically none of this would apply. Also: I had an infection last week, made an appointment for the next hour, walked away with a prescription for antibiotics (didn't even have to pay for the prescription; hurrah for Wales). Anecdotes, what can't they prove?
