I would add military and police (in these parts anyways) to this.

In any case, it's more convenient for some stakeholders for these groups to be "paid" in compliments and admiration than actual...

Pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, though I'm picky - I prefer it on the firmer side, not like custard. I make the pumpkin pies each year.

My favorite fruit pies are blueberry, cherry, and peach.

I would take the 20 hours at current salary. Of course, I'm an actuary so I make decent money. Not everyone is so fortunate.

Will also give a shout-out to Culvers. I've been to Rita's Italian Ice a couple times, pretty good, and there's a Baskin Robbins location I like. Otherwise, we don't even have most of those places...

Same. My spouse obsesses over gas prices, will text me "fill up, gas is jumping 10 cents", etc. Since I pretty much don't let my tank fall too far below half a tank anyway, the savings involved is...

No garlic press or mincing in our household. We have two store-bought spice containers with "garlic" on the label, one is garlic powder and I think the other one might be minced.

We've reached a common understanding, and he's not a novice cook, so we're kind of past that point. Not be a jerk, yes, but I don't need to coddle him either.
