    He’s symptomatic this time. I think he’s out for real. I’ll be stunned if he’s the only one though.

    Seen on our local garage sale group yesterday. “Don’t put it in a room with a black light”.

    Possible new job - $ question

    I went through all of this a few years back. Unfortunately the only way to really jump up in pay is to change companies. Staying to long at one place as I did for over twenty years really stifled my compensation. Jumping ship bumped me up over 20% in one step and my pay increased at a much faster pace over the next several years. I used to be in strategic sourcing as well. I decided to jump to sales and discovered sales is a much less miserable job and much more lucrative. In sourcing I discovered if you do well with savings and cost avoidance one year, they would change definitions each subsequent so as to make it impossible to reach bonus targets. For some reason management hates paying purchasing for a job well done, but they are so afraid of losing salespeople, that take care of us much better

    But they are so easy and fast to empty, it's not a problem IMO.

    We recently bought one of the Dyson stick cordless vacs on sale. It was last year's model so it was a better price, still a bit more $200 though. It's been great simply because it's so easy to use, there's no procrastination inertia to grab it and give the rugs and floors a quick sweep. Full disclosure: we no longer have any pets. I can't vouch for it's ability to deal with couple of dogs who shed a lot. Otherwise we are real happy with our purchase.

    You lost me at “Audi”. The first shop visit after the warranty expires usually totals the car.

    I agree that's a ton of money for a 15 year old car. Unless the engine and transmission are both brand new, it's at most a $5000 car, if that much.
