How long did you keep GF waiting?

My favorite was my boss who would show up 10-15 minutes late - late enough that we'd start without him - and then go back through the agenda and say, "I know you've already talked about this, but let's go over it again."

That's actually the thing that makes me feel bad about being late. Everyone stops the conversation to rehash ground already covered for my benefit.

It doesn't make me feel bad enough to stop being late though facepalm.gif

Alcohol or some combinations of drugs causes it^^

How do cats that otherwise never scratch the furniture know that it's okay to scratch a scratching post?

It takes some work as their owner but it really works. Our guys do leave the occasional mark on our leather but it's by accident if they do.

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.

Weird. Bagging dog shit in your backyard every Sunday builds character. Also makes you wonder why you even own the damn mutt. "Jesuz christ. Disgusting. Goddamned thing bette bite a prowler one of these days..." etc

You must live in the wrong neighborhood.

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.

That "Everyday Carry" thing where people claim to carry 3 knives, 2 flashlights, 50m of paracord, a pen that looks like a rifle bolt, and a self-inflating raft in a canister and then you look at their job and it's like "accountant."
