Seriously Stupid

Dear, Seriously Stupid:

If you ever felt you have done something seriously stupid @ work fear not there are many more idiotic people in this world. Not to mention just flat silly corporation and buisness blunders that would make any CEO cringe at the mere thought they actually paid these people.

I guess there is such a thing as job security.

OMG.

Sincerly Yours,

Not as dumb as the top 100.

Something smells in balata!!!

What the heck!!! We knew it was coming. The real question is why are we sucumbing to the needs of individuls that are now getting bailed out for making poor financial decisions.

So why can't I just walk into the bank and re-negotiate my loan. Why can't I just say oh poor me I just didn't understand and I am about to lose my home.. So please mister banker please adjust my home loan and make it affordable for me.

The problem with that is.... I did know better!!! I take accountability for the loan documents I signed…

Seeing something like this really is a nice change of pace.

The problem with most investments is, they are mostly projections. If they pan out great.

However the Roth IRA is not a bad deal. $15500.00 seems like a lot of money for most people. Think about it if you started a Roth IRA @ say age 20 and saved just $100.00 a month. Well guess what in say just under 13 years you would have met that amount. Even though $15500.00 is the maximum contribution amount a year for a Roth IRA. In this article it is also used as a wow factor. for a 20 year investment : "Put your money in a Roth 401(k) and you'll end up with $72,245 tax-free in 20 years"

However, the numbers don't lie. If you did in fact place $15500.00 in an account and let it sit earning interest amortized @ an 8 % interest rate. You woul…
