I need to make it explicitly clear that my previous comment constitutes the single biggest shitpost I’ve ever written as part of the kinja commentariat. While sad, I’d completely understand if it’s grounds for me getting re-grayed. I am deeply remorseful for my actions, and can assure you that that is not in my heart. Read more

In protest of this I will start slicing by loaf bread like a bagel.

I think the card itself looks pretty cool and would have contemplated getting one but the 1% cash back when you use the actual card is a deal breaker. I know I reached “you darn kids get off my lawn” status a while back with technology but I just don’t want to pay for things with my phone.

That’s the real disappointment.  2 percent back on every Apple Pay purchase is pretty good, actually, provided you get some sort of sign-up bonus like you would on most of these cards discussed above.  Citi Double Cash, for instance, gives you 0% interest on balance transfers for 18 mos if you open a new card account.

If you’re looking for guidance on just what info to share, might I recommend pretending you are buying a home together... man, doing that process with my partner left us realizing that there were no secrets anymore. Bank statements, tax returns, 401k balances, credit scores. I knew his financial details as well as I Read more

Better idea: if you have the money make the payment all at once. If it's like great lakes, it will auto calculate how many months you are paid forward.

I know with FedLoan and CFNC I had to call them and say that I wanted all extra payments to be treated as additional principle, otherwise they treated it as a prepayment for the next month. I’m sure other loan servicers do this as well.

Depends on the comb? Is it one of those pick kinds? Or a fine-toothed? The pick one would be ok. The fine-tooth? Eewww.

She kind of sounds like an asshole. Maybe this was an editorial choice and the re-telling of the story did not follow what actually happened but “berating” the aide for forgetting a fork and then demanding he/she clean the comb afterwards? Gah....get over yourself
