Re: Just when you're convinced Walmart...

They've had them for at least a decade around me.

If there's only one or two items, no trouble. But on larger items there's one kind that wants you to stop and bag, then they want you to move the bags, then they start backing things up so [more]

Re: Rejected credit card

I voted that her hubby is canceling the cards to prevent more cobras or something.

So did I.

However, in the Comments section it turns out that they have a lot of bills on Autopay, so every time she gets a new card they have [more]

But then, on the other hand,

Mothers.

My sister-in-law's cousin died very unexpectedly this week. So the family members are flying out to Minnesota. I had sent the usual "please let me know if there's anything I can do" message, but then I tried to think if there was something [more]

Re: What's in your emergency kit?

I was thinking more along the lines of "the big one" just happened (earthquake, tornado, big flood, dunno) and I need to get myself and my dogs out of the house for whatever reason.

You might want to include any information [more]

Re: Why didn't somebody do something?

The replies are pretty much what I thought. If there is an identifiable cause of concern people will call in or take action, but if things seem okay otherwise they let it ride.

Re: where to begin

Is US Bank a mortgage?

Why didn't somebody do something?

The story of the house of horrific conditions just keeps getting worse.

Back at the end of August the police in Blackstone, Mass got a [more]

Re: An Open Letter

the alternatives are numerous and looking pretty good right now.

A law from the past.

Massachusetts has had another of those House of Horrors cases: children living in unbelievable filth, dead animals and vermin, and so on. After the children were removed a couple of weeks ago, the police came back and discovered the bodies of three [more]

Dumb and Dumber

There was a robbery the other day in Boston. Someone called a livery service, a driver was dispatched to the address, when he got there two people got in the car and asked him to go to another address, and when he got there another person came over [more]

Well, you can't delete it yourself, but you can ask the Fool to do so. Over toward the left, next to where it says "Recommend this Post" there's something that [more]

Re: Sudden debt

Unless the OP lists their expenses,

He's currently over on the Budgeting board, posing the same original question. I think he's looking for permission to do something the board thinks is unwise.

Neither. You two need to sit down with your budget and look for ways to cut back so you are no longer spending more money than you have coming in.

In a case like this, you need to [more]

Re: Broke on $400K a year

Interesting, but I noticed that this was a made-up family with made-up numbers. There are people who can always spend, no matter how much money they have, and people who will always save, no matter how little they have.
