    Just an observation.
    Disagree. Why "hide"? Menstruation happens. To like 50% of the human race. Who cares?

    We did too, it was called "Consumer Economics". Taught by Ms Delehanty, who drove a firebird and was the first woman I ever knew who went by Ms.

    She was a pistol. We wrote resumes too. And did basic household budgets based on local ads for housing, groceries, etc.

    Agreed. Lots of times I authorize a transaction and it doesn't come thru til I've forgotten about it, and it messes me up.

    Why would they do that and pay 3% processing fees versus getting your WHOLE payment via check?
