I'm dealing with a f*cked up purchase from an online company. Big ticket item, too. They screwed up the shipping so badly, the thing was supposed to be delivered over a week ago, and now they can't even tell me if it's shipped! They were supposed to send an item to 'compensate' for my inconvenience and it never even shipped, let alone arrived. So I told them to cancel the order and give me my money back. They offered ANOTHER 'compensatory' item if I give them another chance. Yeah, okay, the first one never even showed up. So I emailed them back: The only way this sale is going through is if you send BOTH extra items and give me a 50% discount. Otherwise refund my money in full. Today. I could have driven to the place, picked up the item myself, and been home in three days. I've been waiting over a month. *pissed*

My job has a pension plan and I feel really lucky. But I'm also saving as much as I can and plan to own my property mortgage free by 65. Then I will retire with my full 30 year pension plus two other income streams. This of course depends on no catastrophes between now and then, lol. I'm single now so I have no one else to depend on, I may meet someone or get an inheritance but am certainly not counting on it. My sister is much older than me and said that after 50 she asked herself before any purchase she made if that money would be better saved for retirement than spent now and I've been using that.

In response to a confession. He won't let you?? F that, I would do it anyhow. Obsolete electronics are never going to have any future use, what a waste of space . Your dh sounds like a hoarder.

They are doing an E-waste collection on campus this week and they are taking just about everything except old tube TVs and major appliances. I rounded up: an old printer with no cartridge, 2 old dead laptops, 2 monitors, 2 boxes full of old cords to things we never use, a broken router, some cables that used to connect to the internet before we had wifi, and a few old flip phones. DH won't let me get rid of anything except the 2 monitors because "we might need them" and "they come in handy for things". He hasn't touched any of that stuff in 10 years! It's all just sitting there collecting dust. He drives me insane.

I wish companies weren't getting rid of pensions left and right. DH worked for 10 years for a company and then they froze the pensions and discontinued them. When he retires, we'll get a skimpy little amount every month but basically we're saving up in our IRAs and 401ks until then.

My mom gets TWO pensions from my father and stepfather. I told her she should never complain about money.

In response to a confession. If they have retirement and a pension, then they DID work their butts off, and probably for a very long time. Good for them for making smart decisions and investing their money wisely.

In response to a confession. It's called a gambling addiction. My grandma has never been a gambler, but her retirement home took a group field trip to one of the Indian casinos near us. My grandma quit after she was up $40 at blackjack, but she said there's a woman who she knows who goes all the time and will often spend her grocery money on the slots and then have to go to the food pantry to get a few boxes of mac and cheese and other random food to get her through the week.

Property manager didn't tell us about the major construction happening at the unit below us. Thanks a lot.
