@vanderlyn Mine works fine! It's an LG, I think. A normal wash cycle takes about an hour and twenty minutes, and about another two hours to get totally dry (I only dry sheets and towels in the machine and hang the rest though).
I moved to a different country for my job because it was an offer I just couldn't pass up. My partner broke up with me initially - he couldn't get a job here (it's already a difficult market and he doesn't speak the language) but once I got here, we got back together. It works, so far, although there's 2,5 years to go so we'll see. I really appreciate his support.
@cjm Also, don't Starbucks employees get benefits, whereas WalMart does everything to avoid that?
@Theestablishment It's reassuring to know that these fancy brand names aren't substantially better than my cheap clothing. Whenever I break a pair of $10 sunglasses I wonder, should I shell out for something better? Apparently not. Also, drink your wine! Invite some friends over and open a few special bottles! LIVE IN THE NOW!
@chic noir Good luck! It's possible! I have the American coworkers to prove it.
Ugh @ the author of that godawful article selling her services as a "Relationship Coach"
@TheDoctorsCompanion Well, if only you'd learn to be less manipulative! I know, that's hard, as us women are naturally inclined to be just that.
I feel like we've all had that One Roommate who tried (and succeeded) to coast by on the others' dime. They must be the same person who don't factor in tax and tip when putting down cash for a group meal.
@Tim de Christopher@facebook So... congrats for being born in the good old days?
@halloliebchen Woo! Go Germany/Europe! You inspired me to look up Belgium's system and it's pretty okay as well. Fingers crossed that we never have to use it, but good to know it's there! I moved to France last summer but since I'm only going to be here a few years I'm still allowed to pay into Belgium's system. So I didn't have to start all over! Bless you, E.U. worker's mobility
