  • Most financial advisors say not to finance a car if you can help it, pay cash if possible. But does it really matter?

    Let's say there are two guys, Joe and Moe. Both work a day job and are middle class. Joe takes an auto loan to get a new car and pays it off for five years. Moe on the other hand spends five years saving an X amount of money every month until he has enough to go to the dealership and buy the same car outright. Either way, they both paid the money for the car, and they both had an X amount of money earmarked for the car every month for five years. Does it make a difference if you're Joe or Moe?

  • Administrative assistant signed my name to expense reports and submitted them without my approval: OK?

    I submit expense reports at work to my administrative assistant (“AA”). The AA then compiles them into a spreadsheet-type report and then submits them to our company’s accounting department for reimbursement. The last time the AA submitted expense reports, they were full of errors and that cause big problems for me. When I got a copy of the submission, the AA had signed my name to them and submitted them without my sign off. Is signing your boss’s name to an expense report (as though the boss had signed it) and submitting it without the boss’s approval, OK?

  • Landlord is attempting to make us pay for damages that was not our fault?

    This time around last year, my significant other and I moved into a two bedroom apartment. We were in urgent need of a home so the landlord allowed for us to move our furniture and items into the home before repairing anything . After settling our items , the landlord decided to not finish re-modeling the apartment. The tiles on the floor were broken and some were even missing, two of the closet doors had holes in them, the cabinets and drawers weren’t attached properly and were missing a couple of boards and the windows were missing the screens. Some of them were even loose and wouldn’t open at ALL. Recently, one of the windows fell on the kitchen sink and bent the faucet so now there’s a crack and water leaks from the crack and not the head of the faucet. We were in the process of moving out, only a week left and now our landlord wants to make us pay for those damages that were not our fault. HE claimed he would fix them prior or a few weeks after we moved in and he DIDNT. Our mistake was not taking pictures of the damages prior to settling in. My question is, does he have a right to do this and can he get away with it? Is there any way to avoid paying for those damages? Also, is it mandatory for him to return the security deposit ? Thank you

  • For my home mortgage, If I get a bonus from work like $5000 and pay that to principal, will it lower the time or my monthly payment?

    Let say I buy a house using home mortage and it is 30 years fixed. After 2 years, I get a big bonus from work (say $5000). If I pay that towards the principal of total loan (on top of monthly payments). Will that lower time frame (from 30 years to say 29.5 years) OR will it lower my monthly payment? thanks

  • Do property management places charge way more money to remodel a vacancy?

    I hired a management company to deal with getting my old house ready to rent so I wouldn't have to be bothered. I just about fell over when they gave me the estimate of what their handymen would charge. The place does need a lot of work, but I couldn't believe it would cost $25,000.00. I asked if they had any others to send to give estimates & they said no. So, I started interviewing others myself. I now am having the work done & even more work done than the management place handymen were going to do. It's going to cost between $10,000 to $11,000.00. Big difference in prices!!! Do property management companies do this & get themselves a big kick back? I would have paid out $15,000.00 more & the work wouldn't have even been done. Now it will be done inside & outside as it needs to be. I wish now I hadn't hired this management company, but now I stuck with them until next August. I shouldn't have been the one having to find someone. It caused me to miss work & stressed me out.

  • When should I apply for an apartment?

    I am graduating from college on December 14th and starting my Master's degree in January. I found an apartment complex that I can actually afford, for restricted income, but I'm not sure when to apply. I've never rented an apartment before, so bare with me. Should I be applying now or should I wait until December? I'd like to move in asap after December 14th, maybe even on December 14th. Does the application process normally take a long time? For reference, I live in Savannah, GA.

  • Job Interviewer lied to me??

    Best answer: Maybe he just offered the job to you too quickly. Something came up in your background check, someone more qualified came along, or perhaps another manager vetoed you for whatever miscellaneous reason.

  • Something seems off here with this job offer opinions?

    I've applied to work with a specific company 4 different times. Each time I’ve received an interview but no offer. The HR manager called me one day and asked if I’d like to work part time for 10/hr 20/hr per week job to get my foot in the door. I told her I could not relocate 6 hours away for that low of pay. Today out of the blue she called me with an offer without any type of interview. She told me the person in the department left without any type of written notice. She said they need someone there ASAP. She told me they cannot offer me any type of relocation assistance and that they are in a crunch to fill the position. I'm currently unemployed so I do need work however, I'm a little skeptical about all of this. She has yet to send me a job description or what my duties would entail , I have no idea about salary or benefits, when I asked about training her response was VERY vague. I don't know if it's worth moving 6 hours away. I would like to work for the company HOWEVER it just seems like something is off to me with this offer. She told me to look online at similar positions (she gave me a job title) and that those positions would be similar to the work I’d be doing. Thoughts on all of this?

  • Coworker being rude?

    So I work as an admin assistant & today my coworker talked about how she was going to take a few weeks off during Christmas week. The 23rd of December to the 3rd of Janurary. Keep in mind I have covered for her shifts twice now and those few times were for 2 weeks and 10 hours a day and never once did she ever ask me if I could cover for her, she’d just request the time off and waits for the boss to approve. I found out by another coworker that she was suppose to be asking me before she even request the time off. So when she brought up how she was going to request the 23rd of December to the 3rd of janurary off, I told her that I wanted to request just one day off which was the 23rd of December since it’s going to be my baby’s birthday & he’ll be turning 1. She looked upset & told me “but didn’t you say at your interview that you would cover for anyone at anytime” (when I was interviewed for the position, she was given the opportunity to participate in the interview so she could pick who she’d be comfortable working with and she chose me) I was super mad but I remained calm & told her “but I’m just requesting one day off and the 23rd of December is my baby’s birthday” & she didn’t care. She just said “okay, well you can have the other admins from the other locations cover for you then.” I just felt soooo disrespected because I have covered for her so many times & she won’t cover for me for ONE day. Is it better to confront my coworker about it or talk to my boss.
