On Did Your Parents Lie About Your Age To Get Lower Ticket Prices, And Did That Scar You For Life?

I was actually just thinking about this the other day. I remember my dad lying to get a cheaper 5 & under admission at some attraction at Niagara Falls; I can't remember what exactly. I was probably 8 or 9, and small for my age. I remember him telling me to crouch down so I'd look shorter, and it worked. I thought it was a fun game at the time, but now I feel conflicted about it.

On The Work and Money-Related Secret Fantasies of Adults

@Punk-assBookJockey I know, I keep telling myself that, but it'd also be about a $5k paycut (slightly less after I account for gas savings), which is also hard to swallow in my particular salary bracket. :( so much to consider!

On The Work and Money-Related Secret Fantasies of Adults

@Meaghan O'Connell Yeah! We all have little gates around the openings to our cubes. They're not running around conference rooms like packs of feral dogs or anything, ha.

On The Work and Money-Related Secret Fantasies of Adults

@Punk-assBookJockey I get to bring my dog to work! There are 50 dogs in my office. I bring my lunch every day and spend my lunch hour walking my pup. My hours suck though. 8:30-5:30 which in reality ends up being 8 to 6 with a 40 minute commute on each end. I'm actually interviewing somewhere that's 10 minutes from my house and has 8:30-4:30 hours (and half day Fridays in summer). But I would REALLY miss my dog all day if I changed jobs! So I guess my adult fantasy is that my current job would change its hours to 8 to 4. :/

On Lunch Spots and Budgets

I'm a die-hard lunch bringer as well. I bring my lunch 99.9% of the time. Cheaper! Healthier! Don't have to give up my parking spot and I can use the time I would spend driving somewhere to walk my dog (I bring my dog to work), or to read this site. The only options around here are Moe's, Panera, a mom and pop Greek place with a bunch of health code violations, and a panini place which is a good 15+ minute drive away. I hate Panera, so I end up eating at the other places maaaybe 5x a year.

On Monday Check-In

@RiffRandell What part do you want to watch? I'm guessing one phase of an event?

On Monday Check-In

My weekend was pretty expensive, but we went away to Burlington, VT and Montreal, QC for 4 days. I brought $300 in Canadian currency, which was something like $280 American, and spent it all on food, souvenirs (mostly Canadian candy and cigars), and the hotel. Another $50 for the hotel in Burlington on my credit card, and maybe $60ish on my credit card from shopping. And then $75 on gas. Overall it was a lovely weekend, although there were so many things we didn't have time for that we really wanted to do. Total: $465

On Friday Estimate

My boyfriend and I are on our way to Montreal for the weekend. We spent yesterday and last night in Burlington VT. I imagine the weekend will end up costing me around $300. I don't wanna think about it! So far we spent $50 each on last night's hotel and I spent $20ish on food. The hotel in Montreal should be $100 each for 2 nights, and then food, souvenirs, gas (I've already filled my tank twice), and cabs. Have a great weekend everyone!

On Would You Pay for a Restaurant Reservation?

@Josh Michtom@facebook Nope, I'm with you. They opened an Olive Garden in my town (suburb in between Boston and Providence) and people were waiting in line for hours. Even at The Cheesecake Factory in Providence, which isn't even NEW, people will wait an hour+ to get a table. Why, why, why!?
