On Citywide Blight Due to Shady Donation Boxes

In the suburbs where my parents live, a veterans org sends around flyers once every six months or so that they'll be in the area, and if you have anything to donate, you can just leave it on your doorstep in a marked bag. Easy!

On The 35-hour Work Week

I work a 37.5 hour workweek. I see no difference at all between this and 40 hours. However, I think we genuinely need to start adding our commute times to our workweek times, because thought I'm at work at 8:30, and out at 4:45, I leave the house at 7:45 and get home at 5:45. So, technically 50 hours of my week are devoted to the office job I hate. Sometimes I like to add in the time I spend preparing the clothing I don't like for the job I hate, and then I get even more mad.

On $45 a Month for a Bottomless Cup of Coffee

I would be into this just as a way to budget-like, I know my coffee budget will never exceed $45 a month. Perfect. Although currently I only spend like $20 a month on it, including home and away coffees. So who knows!

On A Case Against Telling Your Coworkers What You Earn

Remember that time when we decided that one person's (even if it's your own!) personal experience shouldn't decide support for/against an entire issue? No?

On A Case Against Telling Your Coworkers What You Earn

@peutetre Hey, you know, you have to protect the workplace at all costs. It's those pesky employees that get in the way.

On Friday Estimate

Can someone do an article on how many parties one should expect for life events for a couple? 1. Housewarming 2. Engagement Party (which, what? Isn't the wedding the actual engagement party?) 3. Bachelor(ette) Party 4. Wedding shower 5. Wedding AND THERE IS MONEY SPENT ON GIFTS AT LIKE ALL OF THEM. The insanity has to stop. If I'm single (and I am), that is a ton of money I'm spending on congratulating life choices. Where are my parties??

@Heather Funk@facebook Because he's not involved in the wedding? What? Is this like when dudes are congratulated for participating in the upbringing of THEIR OWN children?

On Places I've Lived: A Black Tub, Missed Sunsets, And The Original Airbnb

@annawiener it costs $12000 for a studio in *Chicago*, rents in cities are bonkers, and it's even more insane that I saw $1800 and was like "ooh, she got a deal." My well-being increased exponentially when I moved in by myself; it's a lot of money, but it is so incredibly worth it.
