re: How to give Two Weeks Notice - LSUtigerME
Just tell the boss and get in touch with HR. We had a standard letter posted on HRs website. Just be courteous and don't burn any bridge. They are also humans working for a living, and would likely make a similar decision. It's not the ordeal it's made out to be....

re: Looking for a TV repair place in BR - LSUtigerME
Some places, at least the one that did mine (may have been Sherwood, but really it's just an older guy), will roll the diagnostic cost into the repair cost. He charged me $50, but credited that towards the part/labor of the actual repair....

re: Whats the best TV brand? - LSUtigerME
[quote]You're asking the wrong question. These brands have a range of class and quality. Many consumer issues with TVs are narrowed down to production runs of specific panels, not brands. It's impossible and inaccurate to judge an entire brand based on one or two models. It's helpful to know who...

re: OT Golfers-what are the top drivers out there these days? - LSUtigerME
[quote] I hit a 3 as far as I hit my driver but I actually hit it straight with the 3. Am I just a pussy? [/quote] We must both be. Been trying to find a driver I like. Have 3 or 4 of them, and swung others. Nothing is as good as my 3w. I usually am right there with any others I'm playing wi...

re: Using 401K funds to payoff mortgage? - LSUtigerME
How does the divorce have an effect in regards to using money for mortgage? I get there are legal implications, but the 401k money is treated the same. If 401k is pulled out after retirement age, but from a pre-tax, you will still owe the normal income taxes on that money. Pulling a lot of money ...

re: P90X-3/T-25 in-game thread - LSUtigerME
I need to find that yoga routine. You've mentioned it before. Stretch X from P90X is a nice stretch and I think only like 40 or so minutes. I hardly ever did it though. Prefer yoga or Dynamix. Update on the adjustable Dumbbells... Went to Dicks, they have them on display, but none in stock...

re: My last day at my job is today. What should I do? - LSUtigerME
Leave random notes hidden in your desk for the next tenant to find. Test your servers delayed email feature. If it "delays" on the server and not locally, send a bunch of delayed messages to people. Give out awards to people for various bull shite. Host a meeting to leave behind artifacts fro...

re: Is 1 year pay severance package for 35 year employee fair? - LSUtigerME
I've seen the 2 weeks per service year before. 1 year pay seems "fair", for what that's worth. If this employee is eligible for some other time based benefits upon retirement age (pension, insurance, etc), it may very well be better to take the cut. For example, at my previous job, if you wer...

re: Selling a vehicle private party - LSUtigerME
[quote] I usually go to the bank of the person I'm selling to. [/quote] Same here. I want to verify the cashiers check is legitimate as well. It's good from a payment perspective, but not necessarily from a scam. If I witness them getting the check from a teller, there's no issue. May be overl...
