I stayed over at my sister’s house last night after baby-sitting her two-year-old daughter (I didn’t get paid for it, but I did get some free macaroni-and-cheese, so I call it a win), and after everyone went to bed, I stayed up real late, enjoying their cable television. This was how I was able to catch the Suze Orman Show for the first time – and two episodes, no less!
Others have expressed their dislike for Suze’s show. I can see where that would come from. She’s pretty in-your-face, but you know what? I really enjoyed the show.
I think this is my official crossing into “financial nerd” territory. Um… hurray?
Anyways, I enjoyed the show. I didn’t mind the way Suze treated most of her callers, and I’ll tell you why. She’s a bit abrasive, but I get the feeling that most of the people that call in already know what the right (“right” meaning “financially smart”) answer is, they’re just calling her so that they can hear someone else say it. And she says it, outright, without mincing words.
I guess, in the end, I liked it because I had fun watching. Yep. I’m a nerd now.
