Lunch Bunch

January 31st, 2015 at 10:20 pm

A couple of weeks ago two of my coworkers told me at one of our meetings they weren't going to go out lunch; they asked if they could join me because they brought their lunches.

These are two nice young ladies. They are not the ones who have made snarky comments about my lunches or Thermos. One comment they did make was they realized I was right that going out to eat was an expense that they didn't need at this point.

So, our conversation start talking about saving money and we started comparing notes on what we are doing. Both are young and have young families and started talking about life insurance. I had the opportunity to explain the difference of term and whole life and the pros and cons of each. There is an insurance company that is visiting during faculty meetings and they are offering to meet with individuals about life insurance. But, like most of these meetings, it is a sales pitch. So they were happy to get information so they went into these meetings well informed.

Our conversations aren't entirely financial. We started out this week talking about coupons and saving money and wound up talking about recipes.

It's nice to have some others who want to save money and be able to talk about it with them. And I'm especially pleased they are younger so they will realize the benefits of this instead of trying to play catch up when they get my age.

    How kind and generous of you to offer these gals genuine knowledge. It's so easy to get caught up in a well prepared sales pitch dressed to appear like information that benefits the seller.

    Oh, that's great to have some like-minded people at lunch. And it's good for them to, to find a bit of a mentor.

    Yes, PatientSaver...why would I want to bring leftovers or why bring anything...go out. And because I don't get coffee out, but bring a Thermos, some made some negative comments.

    It is nice to have others now who are on the same page.
