What’s Yo’ Beef #28

Menstrual cramps am I right? COME ON!

I really hope Rachel’s beef next week isn’t late co-blog posts, because damn, I totally missed yesterday.

My beef this week – as my colleagues who overhear me on the phone yelling at people all the time can attest to – is changing your name. I got married more than a year ago, and about two months ago, decided to apply for a new credit card, because I’m a grown-up now, and free movie points are sweet, but free money is sweeter. Anyway, the headache that comes with doing this is off the charts. I spoke to three different people, six different times, and these people just don’t know what the hell is going on half the time!

Get this – the official way to let the credit bureau know you’ve changed your name is to mail them a piece of paper that says you have. How is that official in any way?!

Dealing with shit over the phone. COME ON!

What’s Yo’ Beef #18

It’s been a “beef with everything” kind of week. MasterCard, online bookings, trip anxiety, snow, hating my job… And then I ran out of tape when I started wrapping gifts yesterday. COME ON!

Dude, your beef just sounds brutal. The important thing to remember is that tonight, we’re hosting the most bomb-ass party ever. So really, my only beef this week is having to sit through a work day when I’m JUST SO PUMPED FOR TONIGHT. Like, listening to Styx all day and Miley Cyrus “We Can’t Stop” on one-hour repeat pumped.

How To: Feel Like You Just Won 50 Bucks

by Rachel

Accidentally overpay your MasterCard (I don’t even know how that happens, ever) and realize you have credit! You thought that money was gone anyways and have been doing fine without it, so even though it isn’t, it feels like free money. I am totally going shopping today.
