@Lily Rowan Yeah, even if his disaster scenario is really just having to live like the rest of us, I could see how facing the prospect of losing your house, and telling your kids that although you COULD have paid their undergrad with cash, you screwed up and now they have to go deep into debt would be hard.
I don't think it's a good idea to submit your LinkedIn profile instead of a resume, which it sounds like the girl in the piece is planning on doing. When you're just starting out, you probably don't have a lot of relevant experience that will speak for itself, you're going to have to try and sell your experience. A LinkedIn profile is too general for that.
@chic noir I'm guessing the ramifications are very area-dependent. Where I live, if a couple lives together for two years they have the same legal rights re:property as a married couple, so I would guess there's not much risk unless you break up before the 2 year mark.
I wish they'd contact me over LinkedIn. Instead, they call me at work. Even if I was interested in talking to them, I'm in a cubicle in a room with 10 coworkers, it's not like I could discuss leaving my job. And they're all hiring for American companies completely oblivious to the fact that I'm Canadian and living in Canada.
@anachronistique My coworker just moved into a garden shed behind the main house, but she only pays $300 and gets her own porch, windows etc.
OMG those pictures. I love it and now really want professional cat photos of my former feral street cat.
I pay 25% on the dot, and it goes up to 27% when I add in hydro bills (that includes electric heat). I have a fairly big 2 bedroom to myself, pretty much because I didn't want to live with anyone and this town has really bad options for single people renting. My coworker took another route, and now pays $300 to live in a garden shed rather than get another roommate. She seems relatively happy about it.
@katerrific Yes, I'd love it if you/someone could do a Billfold post about it. I really don't know anything about them beyond a vague idea that they could be helpful, but are probably more helpful to people with more money.
@EvanDeSimone The only ones as obsessed with Millennials as Millennials are is...everyone else.
I'm not going to jail, but I am sending politely pissed off emails to the Payroll Department about why, exactly, they thought it was a good idea to take less off my paychecks for taxes this year, leading to a surprise $1200 bill for me.
