This movie is hilarious. I may have to rewatch it soon.

Foster/Adopt a bunch of dogs and kids after buying a brownstone in nyc. I’d start a small school focusing on gardening, studying Native American & Black history for low income kids in the city.

Just invest it in the S&P 500 and continue working because you can’t retire with $1.1 billion in this economy

Buy more real estate!

Where? For personal use or as investment ?

What wouldn’t I do?

Quit work

Have my husband quit his job (he hates it) and watch our toddler all day (he loves that).
Buy house. Have a wedding, go on a luxurious honeymoon (never had either due to Covid). Invest.

Probably nothing. Maybe tell all my coworkers how dumb I think they are but still not quit.

Try to get a matching offer at least before I quit my job

Buy a nice 3 Bed/3 Bath with a yard in Williamsburg, give money to multiple people in my family so that none of them will ever have to worry about money, get myself a nice car (probably a Range Rover), take my close friends on a fully paid vacation to Vegas and then Miami, hire someone I can trust to manage the funds and make my dad in charge of the majority of the money.

Need advice on my company’s holiday party… I live in northern Massachusetts and my company is located in New York. They are paying for my hotel but have set a total cost cap at $400/head, so I had to pay for my own flight (>$300 round trip). Yesterday we received an email about a board meeting taking place in the office the day of the holiday party, and they told us to work from our hotels and not come to the office. My team won’t be there so I won’t know anyone. Do I bail?

Parenting question - when are you expected to intervene in park situations?

I don’t think my kid understood it, but knew he was being spoken to. Another time, my kid went down a slide and bumped into a kid (about 8YO) in front of him and the older kid said “hey don’t hit me”. Should I speak on behalf of my kid(contd)

I anticipate my company moving to 2 or 3 days/week in the office within 3 months or so. I'd like to continue living outside the city and travel in to stay overnight for those in office days.

Does anyone know of a service or have other recommendations on how to find lodging for those nights? I can only couch surf so much but work wouldn't pay for hotels, and wondering if there's some kind of shared lodging I can look into to avoid dropping a lot on hotels
