Would taking a month or two of Leave of Absence delay your promotion? My CC is supportive of my promos for the next cycle, but I really need a time out for my mental health.

I think poor mental health should hinder your promotion. Like, if you can't handle stress at your current role, do you really want / need / capable of handling more stress? The job doesn't get easier, you know...

A2 - this is so ridiculously insensitive. Who says it is stress related anyhow?

I’ve seen someone take LOA and come right back and get promoted to manager. It’s how you set yourself up prior to leaving that matters.

I have two mortgage refinance offers for about $302k. Offer #1 uses a home value of $369k and offer #2 uses a home value of $332k. $332k is the more accurate value. Offer #1 is more attractive because the LTV is lower so mortgage insurance should expire sooner and the monthly payment is a little cheaper. I'm trying to determine if there are any potential downsides to accepting offer #1 knowing that the home value in the LTV calculation is inflated. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.

How to save money from monthly bills : 1) pay attention to auto and home insurance bills . The longer you stay with the provider, most likely your bill would go up . Since my wife and I are working from home for last 10 months , I was able to negotiate auto insurance bill and it’s now 30% less . 2 ) your wireless bill . Anytime you make changes , most likely your phone company will mess up your bill . Anytime they mess up, you can file complaint with FCC. My wireless company just issued me $300
