If your co-worker realized her mistake, I hope she will (or has already) tell your boss and take responsibility.

Yes, there is more variety than that stereotype of Manhattan suggests, although I agree that I definitely understand why it exists. My sister and her husband lived in a 4th floor walk-up railroad one bedroom on York Avenue for a while, until a few months ago. I could see them being considered middle class or

My take on this is very much colored by the people I know who live in Manhattan and elsewhere in NYC. People I know who have middle class lifestyles aren’t making anywhere near $500k. I know people who make near that amount and live in Manhattan and feel it isn’t enough, which I understand. But I also don’t think that

I think both you and TamTams are too extreme. There is public housing in Manhattan, to take one example of non-rich people living there.

Ugh. We went on vacation for a week last month, and while we were gone a huge spider built an amazing web on our back porch. The spider was, like, the size of a dime. I left it there out of respect because I was so impressed by how big the web was. Then, of course, I forgot it was there and walked out there and got

Wow, I am so sorry to hear that! I really sympathize. I have been totally stressed and unable to sleep much the past few weeks. I hope things work out for you!

I’ve never done it, I hope you find something that works! Are you still planning on selling the place?

That’s awesome that you will have family help either way. My in-laws suddenly annoyed me a lot less when they started taking my son for sleepovers. ;)

If kids are part of the plan, would that large family of your husband’s be up for helping out? And, if so, do you have a comparable network where you are now? That can make a big difference to your quality of life and pocketbook when you have young kids. Plus, also, it’s nice for kids to be around extended family. :)

In addition to what the others have said, I had another thought. I don’t know how applicable or valid this is, but given that there is a lot of racist rhetoric in this country about protesting black men and women being angry/threatening, this choice sort of preemptively negates that line of criticism. He’s doing

God forbid you should have to play your role as a parent and actually teach your child about tough social issues that our country faces. FFS

Don’t feel guilty! It’s Labor Day (assuming you’re in the U.S.). You shouldn’t be working today.

I am like half a step up from the clueless camper. I’ve done some camping, but not a lot— but my husband has camped a lot, so we have our own gear. I’m a planner so I’m the type to put the tent up at home to make sure I know how, and to think through what we need to bring, but I haven’t done enough camping to be

I am 100% going to get nacho ingredients as soon as I finish sharpening these 24 no. 2 pencils I have to send with my kid to school on Tuesday. Basically the only good thing to come out of my brief marriage to a Texan was nachos. We made them with refried beans, pickled jalapenos, cheddar cheese, and chorizo.

Interesting. I find chop sticks are useful for that.

Pickle forks?! I would love to eat so many pickles that special forks are a “necessity”.

It was amazing! Plus, with all of the physical activity I felt 100% comfortable with eating as much of anything as I wanted. Which to be honest is basically my top priority in life.
