Sure, if you want to set money on fire. The tiny house fad is just that. Which, might be ok to try and capitalize on in the short term if the market likely wasn't at (or very near) peak pricing on the fad items. I think buying a tiny house now would be like buying into the credit default swap market in late 2004 or early 2005.

I am far too materialistic for a tiny house.

Went to a different houses open house yesterday. It was pretty OK, but I think a little overpriced compared to other houses Iíve been seeing.

Been having meetings with branch managers to set budget for the past two weeks. I joked yesterday in one about millenials not opening cdís because we donít have any money to put in them (not, yanno, because just my regular ally savings account gets me more interest than our highest special rate cdís, but whatever).

Next meeting the market manager goes ďwow, Napa, $3k, I bet youíd like to know what it feels like to have that much moneyĒ in a meeting with the consumer banking president and a branch manager and not in an actual joking tone but in her passive aggressive MN nice tone. Wanted to be like bitch, I literally just transferred $6k into my high yield savings account before this meeting. She really grinds my gears. I might have mentioned this, but my boss thinks that sheíd be next in line for the consumer banking pres role when our ceo retires (my boss wonít tell me when exactly but he did say thereís a hard exit date set for him and then most likely the current PCB would take over). If thatís how it shakes down and I donít get a different role Iím moving on because I canít work for her.

I canít understand why she would even go there. Thatís not even a funny joke.

I would definitely still be in my old role, and probably driving more value for the org, if not for the POS director in that group. Bad managers are just poison.

Idk. But I donít care for her. Sheís been uncooperative, passive aggressive, and has attempted to throw me under the bus numerous times in these meetings. I donít care for her. On the other end of the spectrum was the market manager who was more than prepared and nice and who even said nice things about me. Itís too bad sheís an older lady because I wouldnít mind having her as my boss.

On the housing front...my buddy had mentioned he really liked his mortgage guy awhile back and so I just asked for his name, not really telling him (my buddy) why I was looking at houses and he just own his own offered up their upstairs for me to live in if I needed a temporary place for a few months so, this might all still work out OK.

My girlfriend is kinda flipping out because they promoted her coworker up into a manager role over her. It is a department of three, and none of the three are go-getters, and the new manager was the most experienced. All seems about right.

I basically just told her: your unhappiness has an impact on my life, so I look at this as a problem for both of us. Figure out what you like in your day, translate that into a job role, and build a roadmap. Iíll help at every step, and I know someone who does this for a living who can also be a resource. Etc.

She tells me she has this wedding coming up and she doesnít have time to work on anything until thatís done. I resisted the urge to tell her that the situation canít be that upsetting if the solution can be trumped by a fcking wedding.

I totally understand not liking the feeling of losing, but the lead up and reaction to it just bothers the hell out of me. Playing the victim after the world’s least contested manager spot is decided essentially by default. If you wanted that position, you should have been looking for more responsibility, not planning out your time so that everything fits perfectly into a 40 hour bucket.

A few months ago, she even openly said, “I value my free time” when I suggested she find more to do to get this job.
