Yeah, so trying to do the responsible thing, I started a retirement account at work a few months ago.

You’re young, they said, take the risky portfolio, they said. Made sense at the time.

So my nickels and dimes have been hoarded away each month and swept off into who knows what stock to the tune of $600.

What do I have left now? $515. I regularly did better than that playing $2 a hand Spanish 21 at the old-people-casino in Lewiston, ID in college.

Seems to me I just paid some dude to set fire to $85 of my money. Good work if you can get it, I suppose. Needless to say, I’ve cut off contributions to that fund for the time being.
