they did this at Penn state? How old are you?
joining the 40 club next month.
This does sound nice, but not realistic in Florida. You’d return drenched in sweat 10 months out of the year.
I feel like there's a big misconception some people have that accounting is a lot of complex math. Get a lot of, "oh you must be really good at math," when I tell people what I do. Probably shouldn't need remedial math though.
It's certainly helpful to be quick and intuitive with numbers, but there are not a lot of complex equations.
i guess you can never account for what kind of tangent is going to hit a thread
It just seemed overly repetitive to me. But I guess part of it is making sure all t's are crossed and i's are dotted.
I once PayPal’d Houndster $40 to do this for me in an online course that I neglected to pay attention to all semester. Minus the envelope of course
I, too, PayPal’d Houndster once, but it was for a back room hand job.
No way that’s true. I’d never charge for a handie
Remember diagramming sentences?
In college I worked construction for a company who built additions at auto plants. When the foreman on the sight realized I could work a computer and had taken an accounting class, I basically just did all his administrative bullshit for him. At one point he handed me a shoebox full of change orders they hadn't been keeping track of. Literally hundreds of change orders. I created a spreadsheet and entered them all in and put the change orders themselves in a book. Finished at the end of the summer as I was heading back to school.
The next summer I went back to do the same job and the foreman told me they'd submitted what I put together and Ford paid them $5.5M in unpaid change orders.
I did not receive a bonus, but I guess that's accounting.
This was basically my job as an intern except I was in the office and not a job site.
We had an audit clause in our contract so the customer ordered one on a few old projects because a bunch of the change orders that began rolling in after I started working there. In the audit we ended up finding about half million dollars worth of change orders on the few they selected and had to pay it. They didn’t order an audit in the remaining 10 years I spent working there.
A few years later I priced a renewal of that same contract that was about $60m + about $15m worth of parts over a 3 year period.
I got a polo with the company’s logo on it and signed letter of thanks from the VP
They used my pricing model for other customers and that business now brings in over $20m worth of additional revenue a year.
I got nothing for the second part
This was all because the director didn’t understand the difference between direct vs indirect costs
I also do not understand the difference between direct and indirect costs.
Let's all point and laugh
See Nug there’s hope for you yet!
everyone just gonna blow past this post like it’s a Dairy Queen in rural Nebraska?
its cruel and unusual punishment to force seniors to work into their 90s
Depends costs are out of control.
Cruel to the system, too, so it doesn't happen.
But I know what you mean.
Not a holiday but here for a wedding
MIL starts reading from Facebook about an umpire that got hit in the head with a throw and it continues to this
“Thankfully the umpire was white to save us all from cries of racism from…”
Stopped her and told her not in this house and she got offended at me because she was “just reading”
Seen that video. Last thing I ever thought about was the color of the umpires skin.
This isn’t in any way holiday related but since this is my family venting thread here we go.
Wife and I are in our late 30s and are finally in a position to escape the rent cycle and buy a house. Found a little 3 bed 1.5 bath house in a little picturesque village. Viewed it today and we’re a little in love with it.
Sent the listing to my family group chat, and my dads only reply is “it’s only got one bathroom?” with no further comment (oh that’s exciting! Looks like a good location! Wow the conservatory looks amazing). Mom makes no comment in the group chat. I call her later and she makes about two neutral comments and then also comments on only one full bath. It’s like they expect us to buy a house based on them visiting once a year and not for the two people fucking living in it.
Congrats, where is the house?
This is in the UK right?
"You mean there ain't no Golden Corral nearby where you can inject yourself with some chocolate from a fountain?"
You should choose the house specifically because they CAN'T comfortably come to stay.
Plus, if it's England there must be a hedgerow or thicket or something that Pops can go shit in.
Sounds perfect with no kids.
should have told them about the secret passage to the lounge
About 15 minutes outside of Peterborough; we moved a bit south to be closer to Cambridge since that where most of our social stuff happens and where Ms Delta’s mom lives, but any further south you start getting a lot less house for the money.
We do have three nature preserves within a 15 minute walk, yes. The whole zoo crew comes over about once a year, so as much as we’d love 2-3 bathrooms, yeah spending more money on stuff that’s going to be used 1/52 weeks a year is silly.
Mini Delta will be over occasionally, and she’s finally old enough to fly on her own, so most of the time it’ll just be me and Ms Delta, and then we still have a second shitter which should be fine for infrequent mini Delta visits.
they keep this up it’s going to be me in the drawing room with the lead pipe.
Hello, is your dad my wife?
This weekend I'm spending four days in one house with my wife, my MIL, my SIL, my SIL's long-term boyfriend, and my SIL's son. SIL is vegetarian, which is fine as my wife and I eat veggie most of the time now, but she doesn't like mushrooms, or eggplant, or lentils, or anything one would usually use to bulk out veg food. Her son is the same but pretty much exclusively eats buttered noodles. He's also an English version of me as a child (anxious fragile dramatic know-it-all). MIL doesn't really like food at all. It's also supposed to rain all weekend so we'll be stuck in the house. Pray for me.
Also I wanted to go to a distillery more-or-less on the way that I've been trying to go to since last December but my wife said we'd have to leave too early to go to that and then meet all the god damn people we're staying with for four days for lunch 3 hours before we can check into the house.
time to stock up on board games.
Think he needs to stock up from the distillery
How does someone survive on a diet thats mostly buttered noodles? He must be on a ton of supplements.
Day One: found out this morning that the check in time was an hour later than previously told so we definitely had time to go to the distillery but it was too late to make a reservation.
Nephew taught his house rules version of Top Trumps and then quit after we held him to his own house rules. He then decided he didn’t like butter anymore because it’s “animal fat” and he’s vegetarian. We had to explain that everything has fat in it and it’s made of milk fat.
What was he gonna put on his noodles?
I just guffawed in front of everyone and had to make up a reason. Dry quickly, thanks.
He is 8
So definitely not then
sounds like a pretty stupid 8 yo. Send this kid to school
So it’s libertarian cum.
Currently on minute 45 of trying to round up six people to go somewhere. My plan of taking two cars for increased flexibility (ie, nephew gets whiny and wants to go back to the house) was voted down.
Godspeed Delt, a better man than I.
