My $ is Your $


You know those post cards that your college/graduate school sends you in the mail to
update your biographical information because they are editing and reprinting an Alumni Directory? Well we recently got those post cards from our law school. The following conversation ensued:


Him: Oh before I forget, guess what I did today? (with a very proud attitude)

Me: ....what?.....

Him: I called and updated our information with University.

Me: ummm...good...that's good. (Thinking, who gives a hoot? and moving on to more important things like the new JCrew catalogue)

Him: I ordered us one too.

Me: WHAT? DAMN IT! YOU BOUGHT THAT THING? THE WHOLE POST CARD THING IS A SCAM SO THEY CAN SUCK $50 OUT OF YOU...WHY WOULD YOU BUY THAT? WHAT DO WE NEED THAT FOR? IT'S A WASTE OF $50.

Him: It wasn't $50...it was $75.


I suppose if my husband kept a blog he could post an extremely similar conversation except instead of a directory, I bought this great runner and napkin set for the table from Williams Sonoma...

Ahhhhh. Marraige, the blending of two souls, and bank accounts...

So funny. And actually pretty smart of your university. The college I attended just asks for money every couple of months -- I'd rather just write them a check without feeling like I'm getting scammed. Our alumni directory is online -- your fancy-schmanzy law school should really get with the times :)

UC,

I know...what is particularly outrageous is that I went to the same place for college and lawschool, and the college directory IS ONLINE!

I don't think they should start asking for money until they have confirmed that you are done paying back the loans you took out to afford the school in the first place!

Amen to that! Of course if they waited until I was 65, I'd only have my social security check to offer them... and I got my social security "statement" in the mail yesterday. I must tell you that it offers me little comfort to think that I could be getting up to $2,000/month someday. Of course, with inflation... by the year 2045, $2,000 may be a nice dinner out. :)
