    I feel the same syndrome occasionally too. I should feel really safe being in a union with good seniority, I don't get it.
    Wouldn't hurt to dust off your resume and start shopping around for other companies. (On your personal computer, of course :thumbsup:)

    I've got enough info to know it was BS. It was a meme sent via IM. Somebody in the info tech department decided it constituted an incitement of violence toward employees. Basically if you are frustrated and say you'd like to punch somebody, not even specifically, you are potentially in the crosshairs. Basic human frustration expressed through a joke.

    If I leave this job I'll probably have to live off my CDL again, as any similar work would require me moving out of state and likely into a city. I'm just not willing to do that. I do keep my CDL current, though.

    This one was easier to transition into for me for some reason. I'm just hoping the rest of this hitch goes as smoothly.

    Are you on nights?

    2 hours left for me as well, but I've avoided the wall tonight. Not normal for me. Hope your last bit goes smoothly and you sleep well after!

    Due to various little things adding up, wife and I are sitting on a big chunk of cash right now and I'm trying to figure out the best use for it. Options:
    1. Put it towards our mortgage. I think our interest rate is 2.8% or something like that but our 5 year term is up at the end of this year so I suspect we're in for a big adjustment there.
    2. Put it towards the wife's car loan, which has a 4.9% interest rate.
    3. Invest it. I've been averaging somewhere around about 8% returns since I switched to my current advisor about 8 years ago (with some tough years in there) but I'd have to pay tax on anything I make as our RRSPs and TFSAs are maxed out.
    I'm leaning towards the mortgage but curious if any of you guys with more experience and knowledge than me have any better advice.

    I can also move this to the money section if you guys don't want it here.

    I would sit on it at least until you know your new mortgage rate.

    If it skyrockets you could try and lock in a 15 year mortgage with a lower rate and fund the difference of the higher payment with the extra cash.

    I'm a pay it off type. How close to paying off the wife's car would you get? Also, why aren't you in a fixed rate mortgage on a long haul investment like a home?

    1. always a good idea
    2. I'd vote this for an immediate (one less thing to worry about)
    3. good idea for long term and in general.

    I don't have a lot of experience but just what I'd do.

    The only reason I say hold off until you see the mortgage rate, it could easily be higher than the wife's car loan.
    You could even "buy down" the rate and lock in a much lower rate, saving you way more money in the long run compared to the interest on the car.

    Everything just depends on the new rate

    That would get us pretty close if not all the way on her car.

    We're in a fixed rate mortgage on a 5 year term (25 year amortization). (Just double checked and it turns out it's 3.8%.) Do banks in the US offer longer terms than that?

    Yeah, guaranteed that rate will be higher than what we've got on her car. I think prime is 6 something now. That's why I'm leaning towards the mortgage rather than the car even though getting rid of the car loan would clean stuff up for us.

    30 year is common. Actually not sure if there is longer? Just googled and saw there is 40 year

    EDIT: there is 50 year :eek2:
