On Open Thread: When Do You Replace Your Phone?

@charmcity I would recommend doing what I did: Go to Virgin Mobile and get the smartphone with the best combination of price and reviews. I think I paid $150 for the phone, and unlimited everything is $35/month. IT IS FINE. I can check my email!

On Express Your True Identity With a DIY Job Title

@nell The longer I work, the more I realize that titles are meaningless, and I think most people hiring get that. Just make sure your resume is super clear about your actual work, and you'll be fine. It's funny because I just had a conversation with my boss about how I feel like "associate" is "assistant-plus," but here there's a formal level in between those two titles, and "associate" is more mid-level.

On If You Have to Pee, Pee in a Baby Store

@sharongracepjs They DON'T all have lobby bathrooms, which is shocking and upsetting! I can't remember which one it was, but it was a touristy area of Manhattan when I finally asked, and the guy was like, Yeah no, plebe.
