    I agree that shooting him would have been an overreaction. Next time, pistol whip the little shit and you will turn your frown upside down. It is always better to take the course of action which will allow you to post in "Things That Are Making You Happy".

    Just did this myself a few weeks ago. I totally agree with you. $100 per month for incidentals (read: clothing). How is a sophisticated man of the world, such as myself, supposed to get by on such limited means?

    The upside is that while this may be tough now, being able to afford things like your future child's college education and a retirement will be much appreciated by an older and wiser you.

    My mechanic is officially ripping me off. For the past 4 years he's been very honest about repairs that I've needed, services that could wait etc..., but after the past 3 services I've spent upwards of $1500. I'm taking my car back to the dealership, :fu: small business operator.

    Very true - I have never had any problem managing my own money.

    But recently there's just a disconnect between her and I. Best though to resolve it now before it starts generating bad blood, I suppose.

    Sorry to hear that. Was it the new format that forced you to retire?

    Can you elaborate a bit more? How do you pay common expenses? Do you designate certain monthly expenses as one person's responsibility and do it that way?

    No, I've noticed this year the selection at outlets has been significantly worse then years before. Less high end clothes and more stuff made for outlets and for the few high end pieces they are usually weird sizes, ugly items and at higher prices then what would sell on the forum. For example last year I could get 100% cashmere rlpl suits for under $300 and now they're about $1200 and in 54L, linen, black and covered with crests. Also yeah the new format is pretty shit, number of views has gone down considerably.
