I Make $90,000 A Year, & My Dates Won't Let Me Pay The Check

Talking about money can be awkward, but few things seem to be as loaded as bringing it up on a first date — beginning with the question of who's picking up the check. In heterosexual relationships, should the guy always pay? And if he does, do you owe him another date — or something else? What happens if you offer to split the bill? Does that mean the relationship is heading for the dreaded friend zone?On our first full episode of Money Diaries: The Podcast, my co-host, Paco DeLeon, and I tackl...

Preparing for the Pink Slip (and some history)

Years ago I spoke a lot… at least twice a month I was on the road. When I spoke I’d want to go to as many job clubs as I could. The record was, I think, 13 job club presentations in 3 days in the Minneapolis area. I was exhausted, as was my voice. I created a business card that, on the one side, said “pink slip.” on the other side was a link to JibberJobber.com/pink. The page went through a few versions, and we finally settled on what you see there. This needs another UI update, but my top 10 ti...

Supreme Court to Decide if Marks With Scandalous Matter May Be Registered

Last Friday, the Supreme Court decided it will hear the Brunetti case, and take a closer look at Section 2(a) of the Lanham Act, the portion forbidding federal registration of trademarks having matter that is scandalous or immoral. So, it appears my big prediction for 2019 is pointing in the affirmative direction: “In terms of my big trademark prediction for 2019, it will be revealed whether the scandalous bar to federal registration is invalidated, whether or not the Supreme Court agrees to hea...

Be a Better Friend to a Friend during Pet Loss

We’ve covered how to be a better friend when a friend loses a parent or is dealing with cancer, but what about how to be a better friend with a girlfriend loses her beloved pup? My BFF Terri (who is so thoughtful and sweet that she inspired this Girlfriendology blog) had a terrible tragedy over the weekend. She and her husband had to put their sweet, funny ‘puppy’ Monty to sleep. He had been dealing with seizures and medical issues for a while, but they’ve been patiently and thoroughly explor...

Happy Labor Day! When The Unemployment Rate Hits 100%!

Hey there… I’ve been blogging here over ten years and have posted a number of times about how I feel about the unemployment rate. It’s pretty much a facade. The only saving grace is that it is standardized, which means that every time you read an unemployment number it is measured the same way it has been forever. What does 3.1% mean? What does 7% mean?  You think a low unemployment rate is awesome, but economists tell us it is not awesome. It means there “isn’t enough supply” (supply being us, ...

Let's Be Greedy When It Comes To Our Rights

Women spend a lot of daily energy trying not to take up too much space, keeping their complaints to themselves, and attempting not to rock the boat.
