Her boss (company CFO/COO) wants to replace all 18 windows in his house. This would cost about $15-20k, depending on size of windows. (For our house, 15 windows, all impact-resistant, low-E glass, cost $11k installed.)Depending on the climate and the type of window he's replacing, it might be worth it.
But making $200k/year and not being able to pay cash for it? Yeah, that's facepunch-worthy.
Same climate as us. He lives local. He told my wife he wanted low-E, impact-resistant windows, which is what we have. We had two 6ft x 6ft picture windows, which had the highest price. Our new windows are all double-hung. We now have them open almost year-round, including peak summer in July-August, when we have them open overnight only.
With the bonus, his gross is over $300k+ per year.
...his wife is an excellent cook and makes him breakfast everyday. He'll throw that away and get Egg McMuffins. Almost every day.
Curious, how do you know what the quality of his wife's breakfast is? ;-)
I do want to know, though. Does he brag about his wife's cooking skills? Have they invited you over and you experienced it first hand? Or does his wife herself say she is excellent?
I'm just trying to wrap my brain around it. Does he not like the breakfast? Or does he just prefer something else? Either way is dumb, but the action is so odd I'm mesmerized.
My wife and her co-worker have told us that it is actually good. The boss has brought in food for the office staff, and it was good. My wife brought home leftovers, I verified they were good.
It isn't only breakfast, it is lunch too, and dinner sometimes if he's working late. It is homemade healthy food as he has diabetes and a bunch of health issues.
He leaves everything in the office refrigerator and freezer; his wife comes in periodically and gets mad and throws the food away. At the last Christmas party, she told us about his stupid food habits, after a few glasses of good cabernet, which I chose at the fancy steakhouse.
