If I start a new job this month and contributed 17k to my Big4 401k this year, do I just tell the new 401k how much % to take from each pay check to hit 2500 from now till Jan? How will they be able to know if I accidentally go over?
My work friend told me their therapist said to them that they were the most antisocial and negative energy feeding client they ever had. I never want to be friends with this person because being evil aside, who has sufficiently poor judgment to share this with a work colleague? Am I being harsh?
