    Bringing home some....*NSFW*

    One day Jack comes home to find his wife, Theresa, on the couch curled up to a little kitten. Jack asks "what the hell?" his wife looks back and says "it was so cute I had to have it!" With displeasure Jack didn't say another word. After a few weeks later Theresa comes home to find Jack curled up on the couch with another woman. "What the hell?" exclaims Theresa. "Just brought home some cute p***y like you did!" replies Jack.

    Internal Jobs

    Sunday will mark the end of my probation period with my current company. At the interview I was very clear that I would like to move into an office job at the company...well it just so happens they've had an internal job open up in records. Just by looking at the requirements I am over qualified. The pay is potentially more than my current position (driver & security) and days along with an option for 5 8's or 4 10's for shifts. With the blessing of my manager and the go ahead from HR I am going to be working on my resume and cover letter over the weekend. Any suggestions that apply to resumes and cover letters when applying internally? I've never done this. I think they know what I am capable of with my background plus my growing academic portfolio.

    Taxes- How do you file?

    Just being a tax preparer that someday hopes to open a home office I'm curious as to how fellow Dads get their taxes prepared.

    Toner Q

    After nearly 1000 prints on my Cannon the toner that came with it is finally starting to get down to around 20%. With Comp I now starting I'll be printing off way more. All my toner from Cannon would run around $250 but I can get reman for around $100. Are reman non factory the same? First laser printer and shooting blind here. Thoughts on reman toner?

    Toner Q

    I misquoted my toner prices for name brand...would be more around $300 for the set. Looks like off brand is going to be way cheaper.

    Taxes- How do you file?

    Exactly. Got a feeling a lot of private information (address, phone number, income, etc.) probably get sold to 3rd party vendors for advertising. Heck at JH privacy and bank statements take up more paper than the actual 1040s (both state and fed).

    Fianances are being killed

    This is something I might of talked about slightly in the past.... I'm now going on 3 years of being a young homeowner. Alone between my seasonal tax preparer and FT work I pull in around $30,000. My wife chooses to keep a low paying management job that barley pays over $20,000 a year. Shes lied to me in the past about how much she makes to get me off of her back. This year is our first year filing MFJ so needless to say I see all since I am also preparing them. It seems as though every time I check the bank its in the NEGATIVE zone for our checking. My wife is in charge of the finances since I work and I'm enrolled in college. I'm at wits end. Her lack of willingness to get a decent paying job is killing it for me even in the bedroom. This has always been an issue especially since I've invested into her education back when we where teenagers! I paid for her gas money to go to clinicals to have her parents blow it so I had to pay for more and she never went into the medical field. She also blew through a semesters worth of excess refund money. To put a stop to this I made sure to put the money into a CD. Its disheartening that I have to fire my own spouse from doing finances. I'm lost on what to do. If I file divorce I'll defiantly be forced to give up the house. My name is the only name on the deed and loan.

    Fianances are being killed

    Took out one consolidation loan for massive CC debt I pretty well had to use to survive when we first bought house. It'll be paid off once taxes are back in (completing return this weekend). Opening up a 2nd savings for actual savings instead of put back bill money. Gotta find a way to cash flow what I am estimating to be a 3,000 to 5,000 soft bathroom remodel for upstairs...last person laid carpet and didn't know what they was doing last remodel.

    Auto Save to two places?

    I'm curious is there a way to auto save to a computer plus a flash drive at the same time? I like to keep copies of budgets, expenses, etc. on both my hard drive and flash drive...just getting tired of having to save twice.

    Fianances are being killed

    Thank you for the advice Shaun. She has been applying to jobs like crazy and she finally started going out to the state WorkForce center for help with interviews and resumes. With her jumping on education and really an overall lack of experience having worked in a gas station the job offers have been killed at compensation offers. Literally school district offered her $7.25 an hour for WRAP Around program (watching kids after and before school).

    Taxes- How do you file?

    Exactly why I started going to a professional (and then become a professional). Free ain't free, odds are if you wanted the credits and deductions you would of paid up.

    Dad Live Tweets His Son Trying to Sneak Girl Out of House

    Depends on how old the girl is. Hell I'd probably crack em' open a cold one and high five him.

    Zombieland: Double Tap - Oct 11, 2019

    Can't wait!

    Replaced other one last night. Heck of a lot better. After just a bit more abuse passenger side played pop goes the weasel too!

    Rear struts on my 1998 are becoming unbearable. Anyone ever use cheapo Monroes off Rockauto or have any suggestions? Needless to say with it being a 98' nearing 250,000 miles wanting to go cheap but decent.

    Bit of an overdue update on this... I was able to replace my driver's side strut. The old one came out in three pieces and needless to say is the majority of why my rear end was so damn bad. As for the passenger side the new ones seemed to be fixed and I was unable to align it with the holes in the body and it also had some differences that raised some red flags. New one should arrive today or tomorrow. But wait there is more (bad) news! There are two brake line brackets that have to be removed. The lines on this appear to be bone stock and rusty. Well on the passenger side the little bit of movement caused a line break on the passenger side. With my WC and issues in my right arm I didn't have to miss with it. Being New Years Day only one big brand garage was open so I had it towed. Day after NYD they called and said they broke their only flairing tool. Two days later and keep getting excuses and being told "it will be done today". If the work ain't done today by 4:30 having my wife go with a tow truck and having it towed out to a local shop. On the big upside just from my little drive to driveway waiting for a tow it seemed to be a lot better. Firm if you press that might lead to some roughness on the road but we shall see. **edit** Got my traveling device back yesterday. I can tell only one side has been replaced but it a hell of a lot better. I plan on replacing other side Friday (I bargained for a day off). Bit firm but doubt its settled completely. Off hand I'd say if you want to cheap out on an older vehicle Monroe Road-matics maybe the way to go.

    Ordered some private label Monroes off Rockauto. At this point I'm calling it a late gift for my 4 year old who says "owe" after every little bump. I'll post back on how they handle. I've seen mixed reviews.

    Whats everyone do for work

    I love getting to work from home for seasonal tax prep...nothing like a rum and coke while doing mandatory modules online! If only I could get away with it at Wal-Mart when I am doing actual tax prep...

    Advice/Experience - Used Car Shopping

    Look up Steve Lehto on Youtube. Granted yes it does very manufacturer to manufacturer seems as though CPO is a fancy tag tossed on to raise the price.

    Raised doors? (literally)

    Debating how to incorporate. If I was single or son was over 18 I would probably turn that half of the upstairs into an open loft type office when floors are redone.

    Raised doors? (literally)

    Random q.... on the 2nd story of my house two of the rooms have floors and doors that are elevated about 8 inches. Any one else ever see this? Why would it be constructed like this? I can tell some of the downstairs rooms where added on such as the back living room and side entry. All of the ceilings on the first story are the same height all the way around, same for upstairs even with the elevation. Any thoughts? While I don't see it being a major value issue long term I would like to find a way to make it less weird for when I finally sell some 15+ years from now.
