RE: Ranting corner
On the up side I paid off all my loans and overdraft and got a new savings account, one with zero fees (where as my current savings account lets me withdraw money from it once a month and than charges through the roof every time after that, thus I never use it.).
Which means I now have an account that I can put money in and can visually see a number. This is how I saved money to go to university, having a visual number see. I think when you have a number you can see the question between "do I buy that bottle of coke or do I put $3 into my savings" becomes a real question. You don't really get that when the money that comes in each week leaves faster than it went in.
For me at least.

TTA, meet thrifty Muffs.

Good thing saving muffs came along before spending muffs could buy a ps4 huh?
Could you imagine if I spent $750 on a ps4 and game?! Jesus, there's $19.50 a month in interest I'd never see..

Uh huh. Drinking Beverage

Now, where's the real Muffs and what have you done with him? Shocking

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I'm guessing he is saving up for an anatomically correct life-sized man-doll.

RE: Ranting corner
So, I had a plumber come to the house today (landlord hired) to fix my busted pipes (still not done, still have no running water). I had met the guy, within 3 minutes he tells me of his job "If it were easy, niggers and women would do it". In case anyone forgot, it is 2014. I kind of just stood there, a bit shocked. How do you respond to that? I certainly couldn't fire him, as I'm not paying for the work...plus I don't want the guy to do a shitty job. And also, why do white racists assume everyone else who is white is also a racist. I just hope the guy fixes my damn pipes soon.

That sounds like a prison movie. Dark Light waits uncomfortably while a white racist messes with his pipes.

I'd report his arse to the landlord and tell him not to send a racist and sexist fuck like him ever again to your property (maybe once the job is completed Consider )

RE: Ranting corner
My landlord just so happens to be family. My Uncle, in fact. He isn't going to care that it was a racist/sexist plumber. In fact, I think my uncle blames me for the pipes getting frozen (though he didn't directly say so). I'm just trying not to piss him off right now. If you shouldn't piss off your landlord, I think that goes double when he is also family and could easily just get rid of you and cause a family-wide brawl. I feel that my hands are tied. Really I just wanted to rant about it anyway.
