Manicured or could you care less what your yard looks like?

What kind of dresser are you - classy, trendy, bold or combination/no one particular style?

Cook in/grill out or go out on a scorching hot day?

I can.  {Snort!}  I have several advanced degrees.  More enlightening to me on this subject is the beloved man I'm married to.  He has many advanced degrees and even puts the Masters to good use.  But he's a genius and didn't get one of those one-year MBAs. ;)  So, very much like Jamblessed's brother I'm sure.  She knows of what she speaks...

Yes, there are one year MBA programs. Interesting you call those "fluff", I never thought of it that way but I think you're right.

1. If you would be unhappy with your salary, okay. I'm not unhappy with  mine.

2. You really don't want to get into a TVC with me about th perks of exercise classes (you seem to be insinuating that yours is "better" than others').  

3. There are many non-financial perks of my job that I haven't even begun to talk about.  (i.e. the bottle of wine and box of truffles I received two weeks ago. yum!)

Yes, but you work for the best company on LI.  My friend (a single mom) works there too so I hear a lot.  (Check your email for her name.)  But let me tell you, there are Masters and then there are Masters.  For instance, there are 1-year MBA's which are considered fluff.  (And I have no idea what Masters Savcal has so I'm not even commenting on that.)  And then there are 2-year Masters of Biz Admin. and from good schools and those are the Masters that are Money.  Seriously, there's a huge difference and any employer will tell you that. :)

If I had a masters degree and made what I am making, I would NOT even be happy with the perks I get at work. The exercise classes alone make up for some of my pay as I take them 3 times a week. Then there are other things we get (just got a gift card for 4th of July).
