@Allison If you dig into the archives, we have both How Muppets Do Money and How The Baby-Sitters Club Does Money. I've had a few requests for How Firefly Does Money, although that's pretty much "they do jobs and get money," right?
@thirtysum Oh, I completely agree. It's more like you have to go on a lot of first dates to find special.
@steponitvelma I have no idea. Loan first? Bird in the hand is better than two in the bush? NO IDEA. I do know from experience that hospitals are often prepared to talk about installment payments (says the person who spent TWO YEARS paying off her foot surgery).
@Derbel McDillet It's coming!
I think this is the "hindsight is 20/20" thing, but the thing to do would have been to put your start date at New Job two weeks after your bonus date at Current Job. If you already set a start date with New Job, I do not have a best kind of answer. I'd probably take the cash, turn in my resignation with a Leslie Knope-sized binder of "this is how my job works, here are all my open projects, here's everything the next person who sits in my desk needs to know," and say "I'll be available by email if you need me!" Maybe. I do love cash. But I like people to like me, too. SO HARD.
@Tacykelly I love your username! And The Blue Castle is one of my favorites.
@Katni oh, yeah, they're the Rules and Regulations chapters, plenty of unsavory stuff there.
@NoName Michael is great, please listen to and/or watch all of his things.
@Allison I'm a single person who lives by herself, so I end up with a lot of half bottles and 3/4ths full bottles of wine.
