    Default Cost of Living Raise

    Well....from what I am reading looks like most of us on here will get a cost of living raise of 2.8 percent in January. This is largest in many years, which as all of you know means the cost of living has gone up. Now we are all rich!

    That could be part of the reason why he runs out of it before the month ends. She's been out secretly spending it on sliced turkey.
