If you are referring to blue collar jobs with little upward mobility I think you are right. If you are referring to white collar careers with driven, professional pe...

I know what every person in my company makes at my level(within $2-3k) and I am friends with the people I work with. I have no resentment for those that make more than I do.
Also, making 50% more than I do for the same job I do is impossible in my company. The pay is too structured. If there was ...

You tell me you make X. I tell you I make 5X. That causes a problem with a lot of friendships.
Envy can be a friend breaker.
I would be happy for a friend that makes five times what I do, not envious.
I wouldn't choose to have friends that would be envious. I want all o...

Gramercy Tavern was my favorite meal in NYC when I went in December for 4 nights. Ate at great restaurants all four nights, but GT takes the cake.
Edit: the Arctic char I had there was the best fish I've ever had. Even beats the restaurants serving fresh fish in Hawaii that I've been to....

While I think it is wrong for them to seize the $14,000, why didn't you use a wire transfer like a normal person? Or a check even? Mailing $14k sounds like a terrible idea....
| Money Talk|| re: What minimum salary would be required to be part of the middle class? - Beerinthepocket on 10/7/14 at 6:05 pm|
I'd say impossible to live a upper middle class life style if you make only $59k in your household a year with a wife and two kids. Double that then you may be in that range....

She mouthed off when a cop decided to act tough and arrest a little college girl for doing nothing illegal. I'm sure we've all done things when drinking that we realized wasn't the best idea shortly there after....

I admit normally a thread like this wouldn't bother me, but since I know the girl it makes me realize how shitty it is to have a thread like this. She's probably have a mental breakdown right now with this being in the paper....

Pour gasoline down the yellow jacket hole at night time, there will be no survivors.
In the case of jellow jackets, I'd assume these are brightly colored 80s jackets. I would also use gasoline, but you would light it in this case....

I lived in Dallas for a year and if you decide to move there I think any of the new apartment complexes on Katy Trail in Uptown Dallas would fit the bill for what you are looking for.
I lived in Uptown off McKinney Ave and it was incredible being able to Park my car Friday afternoon and not get i...
