Does anyone in here use Verizon Wireless prepaid plan? If so, how's that working out for you? I have an iPhone 4 that I would potentially be using it with.

If this doesn't apply to you, who is your mobile carrier?

A question about $$ and raises and whatnot.

Hi! Long time no see TQC!

I have a question about etiquette/procedure in the workplace. Although I have worked since I was 18, I have often worked unusual jobs where raises/promotions didn't really happen, so I don't really know how to approach this.

If I find that a guy with the same qualifications as me who has been with our organization a year less than I have makes $2 more than me an hour, is there an acceptable way to discuss this with my boss? Of course I trust her decisions, but I honestly feel slighted and a bit confused.

Could TQC give me some insight/reality check/advice on how to address a raise?

I don't mean to sound whiny or anything...more just unsure how to approach this delicately and gracefully.

A common plot device in movies and cartoons is that some distant rich relative dies and the inheritor has to spend a night in a haunted castle or mansion and highjinks ensues.

What novel does this plot originally come from?
Hyde

bras

so I did that A Bra That Fits thing on reddit and apparently I am a 30DD instead of the 30A I've come accustomed to.

I still cannot believe this is legit. :/ It's also nearly 10 pm here so I cannot run to the nearest clothing store and buy a new bra.

Has anyone tried this out and discovered that they wore the wrong bra size?? And "grew" like 3 cup sizes?
