On Taking a Year Off to Do What You Love, A Year Later

@Christy I am fond of food inspections and monitoring air and water quality. E-coli is something we can all unite against.

On The Fraud Alert Specialist Who Calmed My Nerves

@Lily Rowan I think it was the groceries part. If you had created a credit account at a casino, bought a bunch of booze, cigarettes, etc. etc. That would have been fine. But groceries in Vegas. Clearly something was afoot.

Telling you things you probably know, but I am being that person. My Credit union called me to ask me about a purchase of a water taxi round trip in Belize. Fortunately I had made that purchase online about an hour earlier as a part of my trip there. And I hadn't even specially requested monitoring by them. So if you still are thinking of breaking up with your bank you can feel free to do so.

@DebtOrAlive Oh no Hon! I'm glad that you weren't in the hospital but still...as you said. *hug from internet stranger* i.e. Undercover Boss: Totally agree but completely unable to summon sufficient amounts of snark to address such issues right now.

@PicNic What your roommate did was bull.shit. Seriously. The best response (IMHO) is to pretend that she is a coworker or client and respond as if one of those people asked the same question. She's not your friend, she's your roommate, all you have to do is maintain a working relationship.
