How long did you keep GF waiting?
Things you just don't get - Page 1562
My neighbors are the opposite of the /r/frugal type crowd. They work multiple jobs at less than market rates. The wife is a CPA for a private school and the husband works for the city, but then she tends bar and he does random stuff like hauling people's bagsters to the dump for less than the garbage company charges. That's great and all, except then they pay people to do a bunch of random stuff, like they pay almost $100/mo for someone to come and pickup the dog poop in their yard.
They tried convincing me to sign up for the service, and something that takes me 5 minutes a week doesn't seem worth $100/mo to me, and they seemingly have to work one of their side jobs for more than 20 minutes a month to cover that cost.
To each their own, but that seems almost as crazy as the other side of the coin.
When I was the operations guy the CEO would constantly be late to meetings. I finally instructed everyone to completely ignore him as he would open the door, sashay in, pause and wait for the imagined applause. I think people that are habitually late feel all eyes are upon them and his behaviour confirmed that for me.
Late seems normal for me. So often, when I try to get there early, then I'm really late.
I don't much enjoy picking up after the dog, but like I said, it is a quick job. Assuming they make $25/hr on the side and they have a marginal tax rate of 43.5% (federal, state, and fica in a middle bracket), they would have to work 7 hours to pay for the service vs 20 minutes of unpaid labor.
