"We are dual earners" Exactly. That's the killer. We are 1-income household with a ton of cash as cushion. So no need to be a dual-income household. During the housing bubble I was able to get a great 2-bedroom rent stabilized, simply because at that point, it was easier to get a mtg than qualify for this newly built rent-stab. So we had no competition. That's how we kept housing costs low, no childcare, decent tax treatment. US punishes being dual-income a lot. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Is this normal? My dh has a 27 yo dd from his first marriage. She has a small vanguard account (around 250k in stocks and 30k in cash). Dh has full access to it and checks up on it, can see when she has taken out money, etc. It seems so odd to me. His dd is an adult. Shouldn't she be the only one with access to this? 57 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I have friends whose children play college sports, and have at least partial scholarships. If you want him to actually get an education, make sure it isn't a really sports-focused school, or one that makes most of their money off their football team.

I would be dying of curiosity and would corner her at some event (because you do have something in common) and ask her a ton of questions. If it is 100% clear that she lied I frankly would call her on it and not be afraid to tell others. People like this get by in life because others are too polite to call them on being a pathological liar. If that is what she is make her own it rather than supporting the lie (but be really careful to be certain she is lying). [ Reply | More ]

probably but I have been lied to by people close to me who are like this and they do it because they know they can get away with it. It bugs me. [ Reply | More ]

But in this case the lie has no consequences for OP. Why "corner" her like a crazy person and gleefully prove to her she's a liar and then go around announcing the fact? As if anyone gives a shit. This is the way a 4 y/o behaves. [ Reply | More ]

why would anybody claim that they went to a boarding school? it's code for: "my parents didn't like me" [ Reply | More ]

No, it is not. Boarding school is code for "I wanted an exceptional education and a strong community". Very NOKD to think that TT boarding schools are the type of place parents dump their kids. [ Reply | More ]

yep. should not have let that happen. but see if you're still under the time for straight forward renewing. might not be close but not yet 10 years. it could be as long as 9. [ Reply | More ]

For NY, I believe it's two years after expiration if you're a US citizen. One year if you're not. I found myself in this position after letting license expire while living overseas. Took a boring course and one driver ed class--even though I first got my license 23 years earlier and had never had more than a parking ticket. Passed, but see how it would be easy to fail. Especially if you fuck up parallel parking. [ Reply | More ]

"If you wait more than 2 years after your NY driver's license expires, you must reapply for a driver license in New York. This process includes a vision test, written test, road test, and pre-licensing course." [ Reply | More ]
