I love The Office.

You: I thought you didn’t watch much TV?

I don’t.  But I do watch The Office. I think the writing is hysterical.  One of my favorite scenes from the show was when Jim temporarily works out of the Stamford branch. To mess with Dwight’s precious little head, he begins sending faxes to Dwight, written on Dwight’s stationery, all the while claiming that the faxes were actually from Dwight – from the future. (Here’s the clip.)

Never one to let a purely entertainig moment lose its potential educational value, I wrote a post demonstrating how this “future self” concept could dramatically help with the motivation problem most pepole have with saving for something that they won’t benefit from into the distant future.

Check out Love thy left pocket, Dwight Schrute style.

    For many years I was baffled at the following it had, not quite understanding the humor. Then I decided to watch the first few episodes and I was instantly hooked. It’s impressive that they can make something like working in an office at a paper company so insanely funny – much like you manage to make personal finance entirely amusing.
