On In Search of Lost Money and How it Just Got Easier

I have money there, but I can't get it back because I don't have proof of address from 1999. Wtf.

On My Day Interviewing For The Service Economy Startup From Hell

@WorkinHardBrother Funny, you didn't address any of the allegations of racism/sexual harrassment. But I'm glad you know so much about Manhattan, sweetie. 'BYOD'- are you serious with that? You suck.

On How to Stay Married: Splurge on the Honeymoon, Not the Open Bar

I feel weird about this, but I'm 35 year old lady and want a marriage AND kids, so...how can I wait three years to even get engaged? I'm fairly certain I've met my person recently, and if I was 24 I'd wait all the years, buuuut...are we doomed?? What if we have a cheap wedding and ring and have a honeymoon, do we break even? Age HAS to play a factor in this, somehow, because I make much better dating choices now than I did at 24 as well.

On Upselling at the Dentist's Office

@ShellB I don't want you as my dental hygenienist. You seem really preachy and judgemental, which is in turn what puts most people off dentists.

On The Story Behind Costco's Free Samples

@aetataureate Yes, I am sure there is no bias in this observance at all.

On On Feminism And Fashion

I dunno, man. It's still an industry that promotes unrealistic body images, rampant consumerism, and can't exist except on the backs of underpaid workers in sweatshop conditions. I love love love fashion, but let's not pretend that it's something that it's not. I'd rather see most (all?) of those 'feminine' professions elevated to a high societal status than see fashion as a burgeoning feminist utopia.

On Paying for the Things You Never Fathomed You'd Pay For

I got the iphone in 2007 because I lived in NYC and was tired of getting lost (no sense of direction, this one). If for some reason the maps apps ceased to exist, I would definitel throw this thing into an ocean. Ok, that and work emails which allow me to 'work from home' anywhere at all.

On Early Bird Special

@ThatJenn What midwest is this?! I'm alarmed. I also grew up in the midwest, and our restaurants *used* to close at 9 pm, now they reg close at 10 or 11. Delivery, however, is still a bitch.

On How (Some) Women Dress For Work

@Jake Reinhardt Ok, it won't let me edit this for some reason, but I think that comment came off as unreasonably abrasive, so let me rewrite: I think Madewell is a very maybe specific store for 'creative' fields that make a lot of money...if I had worn Madewell to any of the administrations I worked for in Chicago, I would have gotten the serious side-eye. It was all Ann Taylor and the like, all the time. I...I did not fit in. And I hated office clothes, so I basically looked insane most of the time. Now I look insane, but for different reasons-I work at home, so I'm typically wearing an elastica shirt from 1996 with my sweatpants (jcrew!).

On How (Some) Women Dress For Work

To the suggestion of Madewell for work clothes I say: ahahahahahahaha. Even with the caveat.
