People that wake up everyday to sunshine regardless of the actual weather, whose lives look peachy perfect b/c of their demeanor, whose energies and smiles motivate you or make you want to strangle them... 

Or do you?

Again, making things up.

I don't get bank statements either, or credit card, or investment account statements.  I get a few bills via paper - and I can't seem to figure out the right combination of holding my mouth right and saying pretty please for them to stop sending me a paper mortgage statement; it's on autodraft but they still send me 3-4 pages of paper each month.  *grumble*

One of my kids has a checking account, he isn't 18.

There is an app for some banks that allows you to take a picture of your check and it's deposited into your account, no leaving home to deposit checks.   Banking has really changed in the last few years.

My kids have had bank accounts since birth. That seemed to be a foreign concept for people on this board, the latest discussion even prompted you to open something new for your kid. Glad to hear it's not so foreign after all, albeit savings and no checking until 18.

Cool, The one statement I get a month is my bank statement.  I thought those with credit card debt waited for their bill, Silly old fashioned me.  Mobile banking?  There's an app for that?

I don't agree with everything with my dh, we aren't clones of each other after all.

This is funny, you don't even know her and you were making claims about her personal spending habits....along with "many people" in regards to child support....another statement that you haven't given the factual evidence to support that claim.  Do you have anything honest and factual that we can discuss instead of those made up comments?
