My mom has this issue, but for everything. I helped her with a yard sale a year and a half ago, and it was difficult because she wanted to price everything WAY to high. She had priced this outdoor table and chair set at $100. I ended up selling it for $20. She was so upset with me.

Good to know! I'm leaving my current job and starting a new one in a few weeks. They have a 401(k) plan. Would I need to roll mine into an IRA anyway? Or just put it straight into the new company's plan?
@maiasaura Ah, one of my questions was: how would you figure out how many golf balls would fit in a bus? (And I might have asked if it was a short bus.)
I failed a job interview a few months ago because they asked WORD PROBLEMS. Yes, like those word problems you'd have on a high school math test. BTW, the job did not require math.
I just found out about the 30-days-until-they-report-it-to-a-credit-agency thing, too! Kinda nice to know.
I am influential about hot dogs and Radiohead. Strangely, that sounds about right.
If you ever write a book, I hope it's called "Ducks, Dance and Doritos According to Dang"
I'm sort of baffled that people don't regularly shop at Dollar stores! I mean, you can get a 50 pack of paper plates for $1!
