I'm 27 and still on the family plan (as is my nearly 30 year old brother), but I chip in! It just doesn't make sense for me to get a completely different plan and pay twice as much.
The only money I spent this weekend was at a winery ($112) for tastings/gondola rides up the mountain to the winery etc. Parents picked up the tab at the others. Money I didn't spend: I introduced my mother to LOFT, and she bought me some new shirts/dresses (all on sale, love you, sales). General groceries and stuff.
I eat at pretty cheap places, even when I took two of my friends out to dinner at Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba (which I love and feels fancy) for Christmas it was only around $125. Granted the second pitcher of sangria was comped since I ended up wearing half of it.
@@fo who the fuck does that?
@jquick just like you get the sense of importance from telling people on the internet how they're living their lives wrong!
@Punk-assBookJockey oh wow, I've got friends who are big fans of instacart, but the $100/year thing sounds awesome! I do like wandering around sometimes though.
I did my 1 thing yesterday, I went to the social security office and asked for a replacement card because I have never actually seen mine. And I got confirmation that yes, the SSN I've put down on forms hither and yon is in fact mine! So that's good. Sadly, once it arrives, I have to go to the DMV to get an IL driver's license. I'm sure that will be super fun.
I'm not googling it because if it isn't a Laura Ingalls reference, I don't want to know.
@HelloTheFuture Abby was definitely in the Shannon category of "From the Watson-ly rich side of town" but she showed up right around the time I stopped reading.
@Kimberly Alison I don't think there's really such a thing as a secure location, and there are pros and cons to a kid being by themselves surrounded by people and literally by themselves.
