One of my favorite weird things about Quebec (and maybe the rest of Canada?) is the prevalence of ethnic fast food chains--there's a Thai Express on every corner, Basha and Amir compete for the Mediterranean fast-food market (both have great mezze but shitty falafel), and the mall food court is full of Greek, Vietnamese, and Korean spots. Bonus: you can get a vegetarian (or even vegan) option nearly anywhere. No real Mexican food to speak of, though.
I am not now, nor have I ever been, on a family plan. I came here to say that I remember when people used to pay $600 for a CELL PHONE, and I still can't believe that it's a thing that happened.
@Sean Dailey@facebook Odds are good there are many small, poorly managed coffee shops out there...where was yours?
@Allison I had a job (small, poorly managed coffee shop) where I had more than one paycheck bounce. The first time was my second paycheck ever there. The other employees said "yeah, that happens here."
@Sebastien Dimichele@facebook Imperial Boots on Bleury and Sherbrooke!
I just came here to say *read* The Best of Everything, READ IT NOW.
@ECW I mean, I don't know what other kind of advice is out there, but that's why I'm not writing articles (ETA: or an e-book) providing negligibly useful advice about paying off student loans.
So the solution to paying off your loans is "get a job that pays a lot of money"?
Academia has these too! My hate-favorite is "To piggyback on that..." (meaning "to add to what that guy said") UGH PLEASE WE ARE ADULTS.
@ThatJenn What is this magical device?
