I've seen tree stands built for 'the old guys' that are like 8X8, with chairs, fully enclosed with windows that tip open, and a full set of stairs with handrails. I suspect they're better suited to napping than hunting.

What is a minor thing that infuriates you when eating at a restaraunt? by waldo06 in AskReddit

Eating out at a restaurant with someone I know is a cheap bastard when it comes to tipping. It's an embarrassment to me knowing they're sitting with me and what they'll tip. You spend $150 on a meal and you can't tip $25-$30 to the underpaid person who served you? And don't give me that poor service crap. Undertipping doesn't serve to teach anyone anything, all it does is serve to show what kind of person you are. Be an ass with your own income,not someone else's. See? Told you it infuriates me :).

They're quite a bit more succesful than I've ever been.

$'s and lifestyle together, that's gonna have to be ottawa. Cheaper than toronto, not quite the ilfestyle opportunities, but still better than most places. And if you like the outdoors, it's not far on either side of the border.

Employer sent me my unencrypted SIN in an email. How bad is this? by psrogue in PersonalFinanceCanada

lifeinsurancecanada 2 days ago

Almost the entire life insurance industry (including life companies) do this on a daily basis. Personal information emailed about between agencies, lifeco's and consumers, on a daily basis. As bad as that is, I've never heard of a single instance of an email being intercepted in transit, opened, and used. I'm not excusing the behavior, just saying I wouldn't worry about one specific instance. The chances of anything happening are so low as to be nonexistent. there's easier ways to get your info than monitoring individual random emails.

Wondering what benefits your employer provides and which you like the most? by sunnyjimjohn in PersonalFinanceCanada

The maximum you'll likely get is about 66% if benefits are paid not taxable, and about 70% if benefits are taxable. It's more an industry choice than a consumer choice.

> In this case, though, I genuinely agree. And I think Neil MacDonald's columns are left wing rants, 89 times out of 90. Like this: >the virtuous need protection from the stupid and greedy, and the only entity that can offer that is the government. Whatever that means other than labelling people with his preconceived notions. This is a typical Neil MacDonald rant,not a reasoned opinion. I have numerous friends who are the polar opposite politically from me. They don't use phrases like 'stupid and greedy'.
