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?

<<Nope. I don't prefer them for myself but am only going by what you have always said where you get your clothes from. Shrug.>>

That's not what you said or how you said it spring.  But backpedal however you wish.

<<Wouldn't know as you have ALWAYS only have said you shop there and then return clothes years later.>

Really, no need to shout.  Yes, I shop there and yes I have returned items to both LE and LLB....how on earth do you leap and leap widely to assuming that all of my clothes come from those two stores.  You know, especially since I have told you differently a ton of times...but again, don't let facts get in the way of you mocking my clothes....carry on!

I found that funny because she does have a daughter, which is proof positive that even she refuses to back up false claims that the kids department is not for short, flat-chested women.

I have to agree with you there, Spring.  If some employer claims there are other perks, contacts, great non-pecuniary benefits, etc., then run away like the wind!  There's no reason to work unless one is properly compensated according to her education, talents, workload, etc.

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).

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. :)

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