Guy in the office tells female coworker to “make him a sandwich.” It’s clearly a joke, but a dated one. How do you respond? Pick your battles? 🙄

How about “honey, I can’t make you a sandwich because you didn’t bring home the bacon.”?

Tell him your sandwich would satisfy him more than he could satisfy any woman.

Ask him to explain the joke. Then while he tries to explain it, he'll feel like a sexist ass.

Wave imaginary magic wand. Say, “Poof!”

Reply, “It didn’t work. You’re still just underwhelming, not a sandwich.”

“That joke is about as old as your last good idea."

Ask him where the kitchen is. Then tell him you need directions bc you usually just find yourself in HR. Women and directions? Amirite?

Trying to decide if it’s worth it to refi. New loan would drop monthly payments by $800 and payout ~$20k upfront (2 months mortgage and remaining escrow) but slow my home equity growth. I’ve been comparing the difference in home equity in each successive year vs the expected value of investing that $20k and $800 monthly. Break even for the comparison is two years. Does that method make any sense? Any different recommendations for how to compare current loan vs potential refi?
