I was a in similar situation at the end of last year, I had around $60k of vested & exercise stock options that I could sell, with an option of either selling them in 2012 or 2013. All options had been granted 2+ years back and exercised 1+ year back, so they qualified for LTG tax rate. Income b...

Thanks for your reply! To answer your questions. There was no new appraisal done when I re-fi earlier this year. It was through the same credit union that I had the original loan with, and they are the ones that suggested a non-appraisal refi (obviously saved on costs there). When I did the refi, we...

The system I've always found to be the most beneficial to and country is Meritocracy, which is defined by people rising to power based on merit, experience and level of education. The problem we have today is that politics is a popularity contest that heavily rigged for those with deeper pockets. If...

So, it's been a while since I've last posted here. I wanted to provide an update on my situation and maybe give others that are in my situation with some ideas. Here is what happened since July. I got an offer from one of the companies I was interviewing with. It wasn't quite close enough to my desi...

I completely agree with kombat and DoingHomework. Even if my wife and I ever have kids (and if we do, we would only have one, unless of course we'd end of with twins), we would certainly not educate them in the US public school system. I doubt I'd even trust most private schools in the US, coming fr...

Hi, well, this is an interesting topic for sure, the right answer is: it depends. The traditional answer, at least from what I've seen around my circle of friends and acquaintances is that the man goes out and buys an engagement ring and optionally the wedding rings at the same time. It's also not u...

Thank to both of you. I am getting closer to having a competitive offer from another company, but I want to wait before I make any attempts to bring this up at my current company. I don't think I would fuss so much if I didn't know that where I work now, they are looking to hire some replacements fo...

Hi, are you sure they will only charge you $25 for paying by credit card? Most schools will generally charge you a percentage, at my wife's school that's 2.5% of whatever you are putting on the card. That's because they will take that hit otherwise by having to pay the transaction fee to the process...

Hello everyone, I am finding myself in a strange predicament these days, and am hoping to see if someone has gone through this before and what their experience was. I currently work for a now growth-stage company, when I started, I was employee #11 and the company had just moved out of "the gar...

Hello again, it's good news that he hasn't accepted, however, be careful until there is an offer, don't ask for anything until they actually make an offer. A company has a harder time rescinding an offer after it was made when you ask to negotiate / have additional requests, however, if they never m...

Has he actually accepted the job yet? If not, you should have plenty of room to negotiate. If he has, it'll be much much trickier. I've seen this requirement waived / modified many times, especially with a three month window. It's more common to cover new employees on ever first of a month. Insuranc...

This is interesting, I've had the same happen to me a few years back, but not with a little old lady type of landlord, but a big corporation. They wanted to be added as named insured on my renters policy. After I mentioned that to my agent they just laughed and said no, the landlord has no business ...

Marcus, sounds like you are in a pretty decent position there. Our standards for tracking have gotten much stricter over the past two years, and that's why I feel the way I feel. It used to be that you could schedule doctors appointments during the day, leave for an hour or so and come back. As long...
