[ - ] Going to Paris next week for the first time, and wondering how easy the metro is to navigate. Do trains come frequently? We will only be there for 4 days, and staying somewhat out of the way, so trying to figure out what I can reasonably plan for. Thanks! 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It's pretty easy, just brush up on some of the basic words (entry/exit, etc). Also look at the map ahead of time so you know which lines you need to need to take for which locations. If you're comfortable with a NYC or DC metro, you should be fine. You need to buy a batch of tickets ahead of time at the booth, and keep the ticket for your exit (just like you do in the UK).

Yes, they come frequently on the metro but not on the RER line. Avoid the RER if possible. The bus can be more convenient than the metro, depending on where you are going. Avoid changing trains at the massive Chatelet station. Buy a carnet (pack of 10 tickets) for a discounted fare. [ Reply | More ]

I find it quite easy, but have also been using metros in 3 major cities in US since I was 21 - though Paris was first metro I ever used and just realized that. Your guide is the "end of the line" - you want to go to the Champs Elysee, so you look for the train headed to La Defense. Similar if you are on UWS and want to go to Tribeca then you want the 1 to South Ferry. All metros are that way, I guess, but because I used the Paris system first, it is probably more seared in my brain. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] In May I went to a charity event with DH's close friend who is also the husband of one of my friends. DH wasn't able to attend because he was unexpectedly out of town on that date. However, we agreed that DH's friend would escort me in his absence. The event was held in a hotel ballroom and was very crowded. There was a cash bar available in the room, but I didn't have cash with me, so I had to go across the hotel each time I bought a drink. I bought three drinks for DF, two for me, and one for a friend during the evening. Meaning that I spent significant time waiting at the bar and ferrying drinks back to the room. Last night, during an argument DH states that his friend informed him that I was missing from the event for long periods of time, wouldn't sit with him and generally seemed like I might be leaving to meet someone. In addition, our neighbor told him that my car was not in the driveway that night or the next morning. This was blatantly untrue with the exception that I left a 7:30 the next morning to pick the DCs up from MIL. I cannot fathom any of this! It would appear as if DF and our neighbor are intentionally trying to cast suspicion. I was finally able to explain everything to DH's satisfaction, but now I am angry with DF. Should I speak with this person or let it go? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

yes, though cheaters typically blame the cheated on for their own actions (e.g., because they supposedly refused to have sex with them, nagged them, neglected them, was selfish, etc.) even if your spouse is the most terrible spouse ever, there are other decisions that you can make that don't involve lying and cheating (e.g., therapy, reading books, heart-to-heart discussion, divorce). but cheaters typically don't want to do this because they want to have their cake and eat it, too. it is impossible to be responsible for another person's decision to cheat on and lie to you behind your back.

Hire a private chef that can prepare meals that are interesting and easy to set up for all of you. I'm not sure a grocery trip would be time-effective and no one wants to go enmasse to go shopping. Have someone (you?) in charge of a grocery list and have every email you their preferences in advance. Cull the list and make sure all categories are taken care of. I'd think dinners out, grilling etc. are fun. [ Reply | More ]

Of course NOT! You are paying an hourly rate already. No tip!!!!! P. S. Save up all your non-urgent plumbing jobs for one visit. You pay for an hour so have the plumber do as many jobs as possible in that hour. [ Reply | More ]

You don't think this will work, do you? As if a plumber will fall for this. They aren't going to do five jobs in a hour. They'll bill you an hour for each. [ Reply | More ]

Of course it does. A lot of jobs are 10-15 minute jobs and it is obvious that they are not hour jobs. Plus, good plumbers and other service men are always in demand. They have no incentive to be late for their next customers [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] We have a 35 year old kitchen and can't afford a full remodel. Would refacing and putting new countertops be throwing good money after bad. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

If you can keep the style cohesive, I think it's an okay thing to do. Maybe also a new faucet and new hardware? [ Reply | More ]

I don't have much if a sense if style. What are the style elements besides cabinets floors and countertops. The floor us super uneven so all we can do without ripping everything apart is linoleum. [ Reply | More ]

What type of floor is the original floor? There are new-er, not awful linoleums. What do the cabinets look like? Can you find a similar-ish picture online and then I can make suggestions... (I'm not great without a visual.) [ Reply | More ]

My friend did this and it was great. She's not planning on moving soon and her cabinets were in good condition. [ Reply | More ]

If the drawers and cabinets are in good shape, it should be fine to re face it. [ Reply | More ]
