Yeah, I won't be doing that again

May 9th, 2006 at 08:18 pm

Nice lunch today with a couple of my friends, including lawyer friend who had helped me tremendously during probate. Talk turned to word on how probate was going for me and I let it slip the amount of my two advances.

Semi-big mistake.

"Gee you should be buying us lunch," and during the drive back in front of a car dealership and a next-door scooter shop "how many of those could you buy?"

All idle kidding but with a bit of an edge. They are all my friends (who all make more than I do - hah!) and if I get this from good friends, imagine what I get from my contacts at large.

I learned my lesson: vague is good.

    My sil won $140,000 in the lottery, and her neighbours and coworkers are driving her nuts with snide little comments. I know it's meant to be in fun, but it is rather annoying.

    Three years ago I inherited 75,000, and Dh and I didn't tell anyone--not even his family. I really didn't want to listen to everyone's advice, opinion, etc.

    What our family didn't at first understand after our small inheritance from dear fil is that we really didn't have any money to spend...all had to be put in investments to make up for The Hubster's pension that had disappeared. Oh well...so far lately everyone has been relatively quiet. I never did mention amounts so they had little ammunition.
