A young associate of mine was asking me for advice about her financial difficulties and I suggested we create a budget. She is behind on all of her bills and as we were compiling her expenses she suddenly said, "Oh, I have to go; I have an appointment to get my eyebrows waxed."

I know the going rate is $40.00 for eyebrow waxing. I folded the paper and handed it to her and I commented, "Oh, you didn't have that in your expenses."

She said, "Oh, put that in and see what I have left."

The paper is still on my desk but I'm sure she'll return soon; it's the first of the month.

Do they teach reconciling a checkbook in school?

Eyebrow waxing costs that much? What the hell do they charge for a BRAZILIAN?
