Five-year thread bump FTW.
I know now that I'm a candidate because when my girlfriend asked me how I could make Roger quieter in his videos, I went through the process of what the journal entry would be.
I didn't think about it in my head either I said it out loud…Debit Speaking Expenses, Credit Cash.March 21, 2017 at 5:01 pm #1518832Jeff Elliott, CPAKeymaster

Literally my only motivation to pass BEC was so that I never have to listen to Angie Brown again. Sorry if she reads this, but she is no Olinto or Gearty. Personality level: Potato
When your boss tells you to make a wire transfer and book it as a $14,000 gift because that is the maximum we can give before we are subject to gift tax, and you say, “That's a CPA exam question.”March 21, 2017 at 10:05 pm #1519267AnonymousInactive

1. When you could have sworn you had a dog a month ago but can no longer find him.
2. When you do find him, he bites you.
3. You start dream speaking and yelling out redundancies your husband later tells you about such as No you moron, it's a debit.
4. You haven't showered in three days.
5. Your house, car and personal amenities are a disaster. Some of that stuff could have been stolen and you wouldn't have noticed.
6. You smell. Bad.March 22, 2017 at 10:17 pm #1520637AnonymousInactive

When you retype questions from your study materials, take them to work, discuss why the materials are wrong with your boss (a CPA), your company tax accountant (also a CPA), your company GAAP Auditor (also a CPA.)
When the small people in you life are told you finally passed the last exam and they respond, “Good then she can spend time with me again.”
When you've written the letters B, A, R, F on your white board vertically with test dates & scores next to each letter.
When the write on/wipe off calendar on your wall has 4 Capital “T”‘s on it in case someone didn't note the dates on the white board.
When you don't care what important things are going on in the office the last few days before an exam because you WILL be at home studying.
When YOU are sick and tired of hearing, “I can't I have to study” come out of your mouth for the 10,000th time.
When you take your study materials with you because you've got a spare hour between hair & nail appointments and you know there is a quiet corner to study in at your hair salon AND you KNOW your hairdresser won't think you're crazy.
When your hairdresser sends you a text that says, “OMG I just saw your mom! So happy for you!!! CONGRATS!!”
When driving 4 hrs to buy wine with your oldest and dearest friend seems like an absolutely fantastic idea since you took hopefully your last exam 4 days ago and scores don't come for 10 more days.
When the answer to “what were you doing up at 1am on a week night?” is “Hitting F5 on my keyboard repeatedly, DUH” and that seems like a perfectly reasonable answer to you because you're sleep deprived and running on adrenaline because OMG YOU ACTUALLY PASSED AND IT'S FINALLY F(*%$&*(ING OVER!!!March 23, 2017 at 4:01 pm #1521259Trele6ParticipantMarch 23, 2017 at 4:46 pm #1521309
