[ - ] We live in a small building with an excellent super. Recently we learned the super bought an apt in our building, a condo, directly from the sponsor and did a 6-figure renovation and now rents it out for $5K/mo. As our super, he gets an apt free of charge, plus a good salary and basic benefits like healthcare. I used to tip very generously at the holidays but now don't feel comfortable. We basically subsidized his purchase by not charging him for his home for the last 12 years. And the purchase of the apt was done on the sly, ie the sponsor did not put the apt on the market as he usually does. Our board is an unethical nightmare--that's another story. Q: do I tip at all? Tip minimally? 17 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

If the purchase were done on the up and up, I would have no problem. But this was a side-deal with a $300K or more undermarket sales price. That lowered my apt value too. Plus, now he's a fellow owner in our condo assn. Feels weird to tip someone who has equal billing in our votes. This so f'ed up. [ Reply | More ]

It's standard procedure to provide a free living space to a super. Your super probably makes--what--around 45K a year? You are free to tip or not, as you wish, but it sounds like your super did nothing wrong, providing your association allows renting out a unit. [ Reply | More ]

The very giving guys usually were a little nerdy in HS and had to work to get laid...therefore they are more appreciative in bed...more willing to go the extra mile.

Not really shy in bed. And yeah, I definitely know what I like. Questions are a-okay. Does "The" in your 3rd line mean 'They'? But if you're saying that nerdy guys could just magically read your mind (which sounds unlikely, tbh, cos no one really can), how does that sync with wanting to explore? And how would a guy who had to work to get laid just magically read a woman's mind? [ Reply | More ]

OR: Sorry, to clarify...Two different men. The nerdy one will asked questions. The other group will just know what to do. It's also a bit of chemistry. Certain men can do all the right moves and never really turn you on. Others will just look at you and turn you to butter. The key is to find someone who is also interesting outside of their penis because sex comes and goes but is an important ingredient to a relationship. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] DF (fiancé) is long-time friends with an older couple. The husband just died, cremains burial is Friday, memorial service at church is on Sat. DF used to date the couple's daughter, who was divorced with a young child. This was over 15 years ago. The widow asked DF to come to the services alone (i.e. without me) because daughter would be upset to see the two of us together. I have never met daughter, have met the elderly couple a few times. I don't really care about the Friday thing as I am not even free to attend, but the Sat. memorial at church I feel I should be there. I find it very disrespectful that this woman and/or daughter would ask him to come alone, and I am a bit annoyed that he would consider it. On one hand I feel like I'm over-reacting, goodness knows I could give a $h!t about going to this funeral, but it irks me that I've been asked NOT to come, you know? Just on principle it makes me want to be there. Any thoughts on this? 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The daughter did NOT die. The daughter's (she is 50 years old, btw) 83 year old father died. [ Reply | More ]

That IS really weird and rude of the widow. That said, given that she IS a new widow, you kind of have to cut her some slack for being irrational. Since she is the one who asked -- not the daughter your fiancé dated (who probably would be appalled her mother said this) -- I think it's less problematic. So while ordinarily I say that someone has to insist on the new boundaries (meaning, he tells her, Jane is my fiancé and is coming with me, end of story), given that this is a highly unusual one-off, I'd let it go.

wow. just wow. I think DF should go on Friday and not go on Saturday. And if he makes a different choice, you need to talk. He will still be paying his respects on Friday, but not standing for insult to his loved one on Saturday. That is just ridiculous. The widow is obviously in grief and not thinking straight, but he can't really discuss it with her. So best for him just not to go at all than be compromised. [ Reply | More ]

It's strange that you've been asked NOT to come, but you just have to let it go. Weddings and funerals make the crazy come out. [ Reply | More ]

I totally get what you mean, but like others have said, just let it go. Fiance should go alone and pay his respects. Widow probably has some crazy idea that DF and daughter still have a chance. If breakup is 15 years old i doubt daughter has given it a second thought. You've had your indignant moment, now just let go. [ Reply | More ]

I am not at all sure that this isn't coming from the daughter, but I guess I will let it go. Not like I've been asked not to come to dinner at the White House, it's a stupid funeral, after all, and I really couldn't care less, am frankly happy to have the alone time. Thanks for replies.
