re: Dave Ramsey's advice to pay off a car loan, rather than invest - Engineer
I’ll add, not to feed the trolls, but because I deal with this and find it incredibly frustrating... Paying off the debt is one step of the program. Bankruptcy is probably a better solution for most, but unless they stop spending and treating debt like their enemy, they find themselves in the sam...

re: Dave Ramsey's advice to pay off a car loan, rather than invest - Engineer
[quote]The theory[/quote] The stubbornness in this thread is the exact reason why it works. When you deal with someone who has resolved themselves to never be out of debt, it’s real tough to convince them to make a payment that will only go to interest and penalties. The first step is to sa...

re: Dave Ramsey's advice to pay off a car loan, rather than invest - Engineer
Maybe it’s just me, but the people I’ve steered toward’s Dave Ramsey’s advice are people who will likely never make it past step 1. One has filed bankruptcy at least twice that I know of. It’s not my hope that they pay off debt the fastest. It’s my hope that they read testimonials from people who...

I envy those that can troll this thread :lol: I gave a copy of Dave Ramsey’s book to someone, but I’d bet it went straight in the trash. I’m confident the program would work... the only downside is it’s no good unless you have someone willing to improve their situation. I’m talking about someo...

re: Any folks doing long term stays in Saudi? - Engineer
I wouldn’t call that long term. You won’t even know you’re there when you’re on the compound. If you leave, mind your own business and for the most part people will leave you alone. Dress down and don’t stare. You’ll see some weird shite. Most of my time was spent working, but if you get a brea...
