It's been 10F outside for days and the water bottles in my attic didn't freeze. I wasn't concerned; clearly my dad didn't raise me right.

So is it like math where you read all the nested words first then work your way out?

I have been accused (by some) of using (entirely) too many parentheses in conversation (both written (email) and spoken).

NO DRAMA ZONE -> If I've made you sad, you'd better not tell me, because I am TERRIFIED of that situation and have NO IDEA how to handle it.

"Respect has to be earned." -> "I am too immature to be respectful to someone who isn't respectful to me first."

You can be respectful to someone and still not respect them.

While that's true, I've found that people who actually use this expression tend to mean it more in the double standard way, as in specifically THEIR respect has to be earned.

I'm currently on Charles Schwab's High Yield Investing AMEX card, which is just 1% on everything, but I hear the Uber credit card launching next week is great. I also use Amazon's card for Amazon purchases (5%).

I'm pretty sure most places won't let you have more than 5 cards, which btw, is too many.

Citi Double Cash is 2% back on everything, and it's a MasterCard, so it's actually accepted everywhere.

I use the doublecash MasterCard for everything I can, and the Amazon card for Amazon/Costco (it's a visa). I don't spend enough at Costco to make Costco's visa worth the hassle.
