    What did you use your IRS Stimulus check on?

    I paid a bunch of old parking tickets, paid my friend back his $$, then spent the rest on take-out, beer, cigarettes and scratch tickets.

    Can an apartment complex deny you based on previous history with them?

    I lived at an apartment complex for about three years. When I left the apartment had some damage that was probably a little more than just tear and wear, like ripped carpet (I lived with someone who had a cat but not anymore) and broken blinds.

    If I wanted to live there again could they deny me based on my past residence there?

    Why would they not hire me?

    I'm not going to say the name of the company but I had applied to a large company and they "hired" me. I got a confirmation email and everything saying I was hired and I gave them all my bank account info like they requested so they could direct deposit me my checks to get paid. Come to find out 3 days later I never hear back from the hiring manager so I tried calling him multiple times and he wouldn't answer. I'm just so confused why they would tell me I'm hired and then just practically ghost me like this. The manager even showed me around the store one day and told me what jobs I would be doing around the store. I have never seen anything like this. I have no way of getting in contact with anybody about it because the store says "we are not accepting calls at this time" when I try to call the store and the hiring manager won't answer my calls either. So weird.

    How do you split the housework in your home? ?

    My husband and I both work full time jobs. He works about 50 hours a week, I work around 45 hours a week. We have 1 child and 3 dogs. Our home isn’t big, but we have 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a giant kitchen that all take a lot of upkeep to clean. My standards for a clean house are pretty high. I make sure the floors get swept and mopped at least once a week, and I deep clean the bathroom AT LEAST twice a week. I also handle the bill paying, the grocery shopping, and about 70% of the cooking. 

    My husband works overnights & takes care of things like the garage, the mowing (3 months of the year) and the vehicle maintenance, and he always takes out the trash, but it still doesn’t feel like we are splitting the work evenly, as those things don’t require weekly upkeep. I never wake him before noon on his days off (per our agreement) and usually by the time I DO wake him up, the housework is finished. 

    Today I wrote some things down on the counter that still needed to get done, I’ve had a busy morning. I had a list, and I wrote him a small list too - take out the trash, and unload/reload the dishwasher. He is now upset with me because I wrote him a list. 

    Was this unreasonable? 

    How do you split the housework in an otherwise 50/50 working household?

    Emotional support animals in rentals?

    Favourite answer:

    The ADA has not been amended to allow emotional support animals in rentals.

    Emotional SERVICE animals are allowed in most rentals and it's not based on the ADA, it's based on HUD regulations.

    The difference between a support and service animal is that service animals provide aid to disabled individuals.  The aid can be in the form of support.

    As a landlord, whenever you are asked to allow an emotional SERVICE animal, you can require documentation from the tenant's doctor.  You can get the correct form from the landlord association in your area.  This won't tell any medical information but will certify that the person meets the criteria of being disabled.

    Additionally, as a landlord, under HUD, you are allowed to decline the emotional SERVICE animal if it's a financial hardship - such as can't get insurance because of a breed restriction or the unit is too small to properly care for the animal.

    Yes, I have seen emotional SERVICE animals in a dorm room.

    But dorm rooms are not covered by HUD regulations, so that's probably a policy from school to school.

    Why is everyone cool with the fact if you die any time after a Covid-19 vaccine you will not receive any life insurance money under most ?

    So if you are married and your spouse dies and is the breadwinner and dies due to the vaccines , you will not receive life insurance money , similar To a death in military service 

    Because these are experimental drugs ... so now I’m not going to continue with my vaccine as scheduled . Why aren’t they covering this ?

    My mom passed and her home estate is in my name, I have tenants in the?

    My mom passed and her home estate is in my name, I have tenants in the home but want them to take over the mortgage in so many days or we have to sell - Is there a legal letter or terminology that gives them so much time to transfer the mortgage into their name without a sale of the home?

    A year ago, house was appraised at $162k. I received an offer to refinance for $200k. If I take it and the bubble bursts, what will happen?

    Favourite answer:

    The biggest impact would be if the bubble burst and you decided to sell. Because you could very well end up upside down on your mortgage, owing more than your house is worth. If you plan to stay in your home for a long time, the impact will likely be minimal as long as the market recovers. You simply continue living in your home and paying the mortgage, then after the market recovers you can sell and not have a loss. Otherwise it’s just a paper loss without direct impact.

    Are my intentions well-meaning?

    I asked my gold-pendulum; it indicates

    I have a strong potential to be a great 

    online tarot-card reader. It's not just so I 

    can stay home all day. It pays twice as much

    as most other jobs I can do, and I'd be 

    happy to share those profits with my family. 

    Isn't that the goal of work, to find

    something suitable that is stable, 

    it pays well and won't break your mental-health? 

    So far, most jobs I've tried 

    have caused me depression.

    What is a good site to search for apartments for rent for my fiance and I?

    Really, all we need is a one bedroom lol, it would be nice to have a second room for a potential roomie to help lower the rental cost, but we dont NEED it. With splitting rent, I could possibly afford spending about up to $450, but he is probably able to spend a little less. 

    All the sites I come across have $1k+ rent... because they are luxurious. Granted, i know many appreciate that feature but I am trying to find something affordable. I would like to compare non-luxurious places (when I say "Luxury" I am simply talking about the unnecessary addition of pools and extra rooms, yes I would like a decent place to call home but I do not want a super rich place).

    So, any advice/tips/fingers pointing in the right direction? 

    Thank you in advance!

    Should I refinance or sell?

    I currently have a mortgage of $95.000 balance.  The house is worth $325.000 according to my realtor. It wouldn’t be hard to sell but it would be hard to find our next house with the upgrades that we want. We have the option of looking for a new build too. Or should we refinance and then sell later?? I don’t even know how that option would work other than lower our rate and monthly payment. But we are set in getting a newer home. We don’t have any debt other than a car payment. Stable job, 401k, and some savings.

    How do I deal with senseless workplace drama?

    I've worked for my company 5 years. Recently we are very short staffed. My boss had confronted me with things " he had been hearing" from my co workers and said I should come to him instead of telling them. Only thing I mentioned to my coworkers was that I felt overwhelmed with the schedule, nothing more. I should point out that I'm very loyal and dependable. Ive came in countless times when they were short on staff and never called in a single day. I even got an employee of the year award one year and several raises. Now I feel disrespected and unappreciated. The boss had put up a sign that that if anyone has any issues with the schedule to come to him and not the others. I feel like that was directed at me. Its like beating a dead horse, I only have to be told once.  It seems like some of the coworkers think its funny and get some kind of satisfaction from it. Sad part is, I thought they were my friends only to go behind my back. I have no idea why they have done this to me. Any ideas as to what I should do? Its getting to where I dread to go to work and I'm beginning to understand why nobody works here for long.
