re: References on a resume or not? - Bayou Tiger
Don't put references and don't put "References Available Upon Request". Of course they are. Do you put "Drug Test Available Upon Request" or "Interviews Available Upon Request"? After looking at resumes over the years that has become a pet peeve along with World Wide Web proficiency and goofy email ...

re: Fazoli's on Siegen Lane - Baton Rouge - Bayou Tiger
I used to love eating at Fazoli's back in the day. The food was decent but way better than fast food burgers. Unfortunately at all of the locations I went to the management sucked. It must have been a corporate issue. Fazoli's was on my poorly managed shite list along with Whitney Bank and Ser...

re: Home Warranty Recommendations - Bayou Tiger
I've been reading a lot of negatives online about AHS and home warranty companies in general. The basic theme is that home warranties no longer make big replacements of AC, etc, if something major is wrong. They just nickel and dime you to death replacing one part at a time charging 75 dollars every...

re: Visiting with potential companies in person - Bayou Tiger
I work for an operating company in the oil industry and would say that stopping by in person is not the way to go. Anybody who you want to talk to is probably pretty busy and would not appreciate the interruption. There are enough calls already from headhunters and sales, with drive-bys from sale...

We recently purchased a home that was built in 2010. As part of the purchase contract, the sellers agreed to purchase a home warranty for us. What is the best home warranty company, and any tips regarding the things most often covered and not covered by these policies? ...

re: Which loan to pay off first? - Bayou Tiger
At what income level is mortgage interest not deductible? You can even deduct that with AMT (if a first mortgage on primary residence). ETA: Just looked it up and saw that since 2011, the mortgage interest deduction starts getting phased out at moderate income levels. I haven't had a mortgage sin...

re: Met a personal financial milestone today! - Bayou Tiger
Finally reached $1M net worth. Since I am not an OT'er, it was a long time coming and took a lot of sacrifices and saving early on. It sounds odd but with multiple kids and the costs to retire it does not seem like that much money....
