Ask Diana If you have any questions about interviewing, hiring, or work, just email Ask Diana. I’d love to hear from you. Due to the volume of response, not every question will appear in the column, but most questions will receive an email response within 2 to 3 days.

I work 8 hours a day every day and am paying a lot of money for childcare, and my children get excellent care. One of my coworkers keeps bragging that she gets free childcare from the state. I know that she makes the same money as I do and shouldn’t get free babysitting. I know that sounds mean, but I just can’t stand to hear it again. I am ready to scream. -Houston, Texas Reader Don’t scream. You need to just realize that you are over-reacting to a person who isn’t using her manners. She may know how to say “please” and “thank you,” but she forgot that we shouldn’t share private information. I think the only thing you can say to

her is: “I’m sorry that you need that assistance, but I’m happy that you have been able to get help.” Then I think you should realize that even her circumstances are probably different than yours and may really need help. I know that you want her to be polite to you – that means you have to be polite to her first. Remember the Golden Rule. Sometimes you give very short answers. Do you do that to save space? -Richmond, Texas Reader No. I’ve been working lots of hours and some weekends. I’ve tried to explain to my wife that I want to be sure that my boss knows that he can count on me. Our company has not had any layoffs, but I want to be too indispensable to fire. She says

that I should be home more with her and the kids, and I agree, but I don’t know what I can change. Any advice? - Pasadena, Texas Reader Heck, yes, I have advice! You need to slow down and think about priorities – your wife and family have to be the most important thing you have going. The best idea is to use a little humor when you go to your boss. Tell him that you need to cut back on the overtime because your kids don’t even recognize you unless you put on a Santa suit. You can still work some overtime when he needs you. Let him pick up the ball because he’s going to tell you that it’s no problem. Guess what, he has a family, too. One of my line managers told a woman who reports to him that she shouldn’t be working. He explained that women should stay at home.

How do I approach this with him? - Lubbock, Texas Reader Remind him that discrimination is illegal. It’s hard to convince a person with ingrained prejudices that he is wrong, but you can just tell him that he can continue to be prejudiced but you won’t allow disparate treatment of your employees. Tell him that 49% of American workers are women. We are no longer living in the 1950’s when only 34% were women.

DAVE SAYS

How much term do I need?

Budgeted fun Dear Dave,

Dear Dave,

My husband and I are debt-free except for our Should term life insurance be purchased house. I’ve been having a discussion with a based on your current earnings or coworker over how much money to allow for fun in your budget. I think $100 for a bottle future, projected earnings? of wine is okay, but she says something like that is unreasonable. What do you think? Dan

Who Is Dave Ramsey? Dave Ramsey is a personal money management expert, popular national radio personality and the author of three New York Times bestsellers – The Total Money Makeover, Financial Peace Revisited and More Than Enough. In them, Ramsey exemplifies his life’s work of teaching others how to be financially responsible, so they can acquire enough wealth to take care of loved ones, live prosperously into old age, and give generously to others. Ramsey knows first-hand what financial peace means in his own life, having lived a true rags-to-riches to rags-to-riches story. By age 26 he had established a $4,000,000 real estate portfolio, only to lose it by age 30. He has since rebuilt his financial life and now devotes himself full-time to helping ordinary people understand the forces behind their financial distress and how to set things right - financially, emotionally and spiritually. Ramsey offers life-changing financial advice as host of a nationally syndicated radio program, “The Dave Ramsey Show,” which is heard by three million listeners each week on more than 300 radio stations throughout the United States. His syndicated column, “Dave Says,” can be read in more than 250 publications worldwide. He resides with his wife, Sharon, and their three children, Denise, Rachel, and Daniel, in Nashville, Tennessee.

Dear Dan,

Elizabeth

I usually recommend people have 10 to 12 times their current annual income in a good, level term life insurance policy. However, if you have a solid reason to project your income jumping significantly in the near future, there’s nothing wrong with basing your amount of life insurance coverage on that figure—as long as you can afford it.

Dear Elizabeth,

It depends entirely on your financial situation. Paying $100 for a bottle of wine is pretty dumb if you make only $20,000 a year. But what if you make $200,000 a year? Quit worrying and buy the wine! When you have a great incometo-asset ratio—and you’re living debt-free, have control of your money, and are saving and Now, when I say a solid reason, I’m not investing for the future—that’s the time to relax talking about having an attitude of, “I’m and enjoy a few things.

smart. So, I’m going to make tons more money soon.” That’s ego, not reason. But if you’re in a residency finishing your medical degree, you can realistically look at making $40,000 to $50,000 for another year or two then making the jump to $200,000. That’s the kind of logical thinking and planning I’m talking about. In that scenario, a huge jump in income is almost assured. There’s nothing wrong with going ahead and getting more coverage.

You’ve got to take the whole picture into account. Otherwise, you’ll get caught up in the whole envy and jealousy thing. I know a guy who makes $15 million a year, and recently he bought a $400,000 car. Now, I grew up in a small town in Tennessee. I can’t wrap my head around the idea of a $400,000 automobile. But as a ratio, that’s a very small part of his income. It would be like someone who makes $150,000 a year buying a $4,000 car.

The purpose of life insurance is to take care of your family if something unexpected should happen to you. You don’t want to go nuts and buy too much unnecessarily, but you should have enough to ensure that they’re well taken care of when you’re not around.

That’s a good rule of thumb for determining if something constitutes an outrageous purchase. If it’s a big-enough percentage of your income to rock your world and mess with your finances, then you’re spending too much. But to say that a certain item is too expensive or an irresponsible purchase based on price alone, that’s kind of silly.
