On Yakkin' About Baby Showers

I know it's too late for Meaghan, but the best thing I've found for showers is having something for people to do while the parents open presents -- decorating a onesie or whatever. So you're not just sitting there oohing and aahing.

On The Art of Asking for a Discount

@amyfrances So good, right? It's also always fun to me getting a little personal insight -- like of COURSE Sonari Glinton can pull this off, but Ben Calhoun can't.

On How Do You Split the Cost of a Group Trip?

@CaddyFdot Yeah, I have an annual trip with friends, and we just use a spreadsheet. Maybe an app would be easier! (But also, no, a person would not include their $15 trail mix in the calculations, just the big stuff.)

On Buying a Gift For Someone Who Did You a Financial Favor

@notpollyanna (And I only don't want to be That Person because I am literally never the one who is giving the perfect handmade gift....)

On Buying a Gift For Someone Who Did You a Financial Favor

I hate to be That Person, but these do seem like the situations where the thoughtful gift is better than the expensive one. Like Mike's cookbook -- he didn't just get them a cookbook, it was the right cookbook. So like a great framed photo of the two of you that you've picked out (and get a cheap off-the-shelf frame).

On Weird Jobs Around The World

@jfruh I wouldn't be surprised if it's something we totally forget would be weird elsewhere. Or how about CSA coordinator?

On Navigating The Time-Honored Gray Area of "Date Or Business Meeting?"

@LookUponMyWorks Yeah, it was grody. And especially disappointing because he would have been a really good professional contact!

On Navigating The Time-Honored Gray Area of "Date Or Business Meeting?"

So, one time I had a networking drink that I KNEW was not a date because the guy was married...until he stuck his tongue in my mouth. I was like, NO. You get on your goddamn Metro North train and home to your goddamned family!
