    As a 20 something college student, living on my own, I made about $15K/year. $20K per year is plenty to live on, as a single young adult. Why should they make more? If you are working the same job...

    Depending on the area and job type, in order to work in that field, you must be part of a union. In the Philadelphia area in general - especially in the city - certain skilled technicians, such as...

    To clarify, I stated in my earlier post that the laptop that is $1,000 more is union made. That is it's entire selling point - union made. Part of Lambchop's reply is that I should buy American, so...

    I was one of a few riders on a school horse. He was very obstinate about dressage - even with...

    I don't think unions are horrible, but I do not have any warm and fuzzy feelings towards them, either.

    The unions based in Philadelphia definitely seem overboard to me. A friend was...

    I concur with checking the rider's scores. I have known a few horses for sale who's record did not look stellar. When you looked at the rider (who was trying to be a pro), there was the same less...

    My brother's house has one. Right now, with 3 adults and two little kids, along with a dishwasher - no issues. The washing machine is run cold water only, so that doesn't count.

    My step mom used to give my dad a calendar every year with all the important events in it - otherwise he would likely forget even his own birthday.

    When I was in high school, the school closed early for snow on my birthday. I proceeded to have an argument with my brother about whether or not it was really my birthday. When our mom came home...

    I have had trouble letting go in the past and I will tell you what has helped me.

    In the first instance, of a coworker - while brownnosing is not my forte, I also need to be sure that those with...

    Meh, I got a warning from a moderator here due to something I had written that someone thought was rude. I replied back for clarification, but never received a response. I did not see anything...

    Also, by simply ignoring her, you are not solving the issue. If she felt she conveyed...
