I dream of working somewhere where bonuses exist.
HOLY SHIT I DIDN'T THINK YOU COULD TOP CHO CHANG But you just might've
@TheDilettantista woot! we need a new car, and are going to bite the bullet and take out a loan so we can get something that's not over 10 years old. And for similarish reasons I may wind up being the name on the loan, which I don't like, but may be the only realistic option. Congrats and enjoy the car :)
@nnlsbin Trail Wallet is the shiz for tracking travel expenses. More suited for when you're actually on the trip, but might also be helpful at this stage - look it up.
God, I feel you on traffic tickets that aren't yours. We've been stuck with a couple thousand worth of those in the past. Also, seriously, shut up about the cost of your housing. :P
I got a nice pay increase at my current job, and have definitely noticed a shift in my mentality toward letting some things slide. I would not call for $10 probably but definitely for $96!
Fuck, this is awesome.
@LookUponMyWorks Ditto - typical bachelor's degrees are 3 years here (can be longer if you do conjoint/double degrees). I've heard this sometimes works against expats who move to the US and get looked down on because of the shorter duration, but I think that's a little ridiculous.
I would've been absolutely screwed in any other era. I mean, MAYBE working in print media, but digital is where I excel.
@sallysitwell lurking New Zealander here :) Though from my Canadian friends I understand you guys have a much better way of dealing with unemployment than we do (not sure about other types of benefits though)
