meyerkev: Pray 4 Mojo: meyerkev: I blew a head seal

Are you sure it wasn't just ice cream?

That was Dad's car, but yes.

Car started smoking, we poured about 2 gallons of water into the radiator, got the heck out of Detroit, poured another 5 gallons of water in over the course of the drive home, and Dad got a nice $5000 repair bill after he took it up to the mechanic (or in his case, he said "Fark this noise", went up and dropped $9K on a nice used Camry pre-Cash for Clunkers)


I blew a seal once. I am never allowed back at the Denver Zoo.

<i>We can drive ourselves crazy trying to cut out a lot (of small expenses), like trying to bring our lunch to work. If you're really good about it every single day, that might add up to $50 or $100 at the end of the month.</i>

Because we all live in places where we can get lunch for $2.50 to $5.00 per meal. I am sure that is especially true in New York City.

Eating out is the #1 money waster for most people. You go out to eat with your spouse almost any place that isn't Wendy's or Sonic, and you are looking at about $20-$25 minimum.

The exception is having children. You just dropped a minimum of $50,000 for the first 5 years of that little crying poop-machine. Don't have kids. Ever. And that's not just because of cost. Children suck. Why would you do that to yourself EVEN IF RICH?

Finally, a pointer to almost all who will read this. If you don't have at least $80,000 lying around when you graduate high school, then you aren't college material. The only way you would NOT have at least $80,000 lying around is if BOTH of your parents are total losers. And since you are their kid, you are therefore homozygous for loserness. People with a double dose of the lazy stupid loser gene should abandon college fantasy and not spend that money, since nobody is hiring a journalism major with a 2.6 GPA anyway. You losers would be best mowing lawns and the like.

Sum Dum Gai: It was kind of funny to see someone hemming and hawing over whether they'd give me a $3k line of credit when I could have simply written a check for the furniture ten times over.


He he he... I've been doing the same thing to try to get the credit number back up from a foreclosure.

I was filling out a credit app to buy a farking $1500 TV and the guy slid it back to me and said, "Oh... you're supposed to put weekly income.. not monthly." I just handed it back. It was a pretty funny look I got.

I hate this farking credit score game.

dchurch0: YAY! It's this thread again!

I used to like reading the personal finance threads when I first joined Fark and started caring about my monthly income and expenses. Now I just find them repetitive.


Look, n00b, maybe there are other, newer people who have only recently come to Fark that are now enjoying these types of threads, ones that to them aren't repetitive.  If you find the need to go into threads just to complain that they exist, it might be time to step away from the keyboard, dust off the Cheetos crumbs and go outside.

Hell, I was living very comfortably before I had a girlfriend. She cost me a lot of money.  So instead, just buy a fleshlight and watch free internet porn.

whistleridge: Have you maybe considered NOT being an asshole ex husband, and becoming a miserable deadbeat sonofabiatch asshole ex husband instead? Either way you suck, but at least with one of them you get to keep your money...


I have thought about it.  Haven't completely ruled it out, either...
