My wife seems hell bent on moving to chicago...

She had a job offer that didn't offer enough money to justify the increased cost of living, but had more potential for higher earnings down the road. She had to turn it down.

But now she's saying that her only long-term future with the company is in Chicago. As someone who's never lived outside of charlotte, naturally this scares the poop out of me. It won't be easy for me to find a job up there, either.

Do they at least have biscuits up there??

Ugh, sounds like you are giving up a lot for a chance at something bigger. Many stories can be told of people who took that chance and it lead to success. Many other stories of those coming back home with their tails between their legs. Might be the biggest decision you make in life.


Hope that helps.[size=2][font=comic sans ms,cursive] sarcasm[/font][/size]

Buy Kevlar. Double up depending on what part of Chicago.

Crank the A/C, put on a jacket, grab some beer and order a deep dish pizza (with sausage) every day for the next week. Tell her you're adjusting to the way of life in Chicago, and she will just have to get used to it if you move there

Anyway, yes, we have biscuits.

You likely would end up in the suburbs, which are quite pleasant.

Buy a coat.

Plus, you have me, which is awesome.

This is true. We could get in some trouble.

I am highly skeptical of these northern biscuits, though.

Property taxes seem out of this world, too.

Ask yourself this Jase;

When have you ever said "My wife seems hell bent on...." that didn't end with her getting her way?

Buy a parka my friend, we'll miss you
