Gekko notwithstanding, the blue shirt/white collar is TERRIBLE.
@MilesofMountains My credit card online always asks a "security question" after I log in. Why yes, my mother's maiden name IS _Zanophlax88_!!. Don't judge my mother!
Not as remarkable as some of these comments, but I recently got married and changed my name. We kept separate checking accounts in the same bank. I called to increase my rental insurance since it now needs to cover my stuff AND his stuff. The (young) dude on the phone's FIRST QUESTION was, "Ok, so you probably want to combine all your accounts, right?" Me: "Um, what?" Him: "You want to combine all your accounts under your husband's account and name, right?" Me: "What? Why would I do that? I just want to increase my rental insurance coverage." Him: "Well it seems like it would just be easier if you combined all your accounts. Then he could do all the finances!" I was kind of flabbergasted so I just said something like, "Um, no thanks...just please adjust my rental insurance." Later I came up with a million snappy things I could have said.

My hair gets straight and flat in humidity and quite voluminous in dry weather. TAKE THAT, WEATHER CHANNEL! You don't know my hair!
@cryptolect Same. I made it to page 2 and then was like "Wait, I have better things to do, right? Right."
@muush Good idea. I also spend about 15% of my take-home income on eating out (includes: restaurants, bodegas, snacks, coffee, order-in.)
I usually budget $150 but almost always hit $200-$230. So I'm going to say $215/month. This includes all restaurants, coffee-to-go, morning bagels, afternoon impulse-buy snacks, etc. This does not include beer/wine/cocktails: I have a separate category for alcohol!
I had to put a bunch on my almost-to-zero credit card (I was so looking forward to paying it off and getting a Mike Dang note!) and take a chunk out of my emergency savings for, well, an emergency. At least it was available, right? Emergency savings: May: $300 June: $350 Credit card: May: $1080 June: $1000
@olivia GO YOU!
@sony_b I'm so sorry to hear this. I wish you all the best, ALL THE BEST, as best as it possibly can be, in your bachelorette, wedding, and marriage.
