If you’re like me, holiday parties are a mix of sheer terror, the threat of being stuck in a corner in the world’s second most boring conversation, and hoping that you don’t accidentally stick your foot in your mouth. So, to help us all not only navigate the holiday party scene but to crush it, we’re asking all of our party conversation strategy questions to Vanessa Van Edwards, author of Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People. Whether you’re usually the “life of the party,” or you’re an introvert who’s anxious just THINKING about an office party, Vanessa has simple, effective strategies that will change the way you think about office parties.
Plus, instead of hosting a party where guests stand with glasses and talk, how about a better solution that’ll make you the talk of your circle of friends for the next year? Today we’re talking to the founder of Blendtique, Billy Dimm. Whether or not you saw Bill on Shark Tank, we think you’ll love this idea of a wine-blending party. You and your friends enjoy an evening of laughing, chatting, and creating your own perfect vino blend.
After we talk to Billy we’ll take some time to not only answer Doug’s trivia, but also answer a question from Mike about credit card payment discrepancies. Mike’s “pay in full” payment option left a $111 balance on his account. The bank then charged Mike interest, which he got reversed. What’s the deal, is the bank being misleading?

- According to FoodSafety.gov, how many days can you keep turkey in the fridge before you should throw it out?
- Mike has noticed that on his Citi payment screen there is a $111 difference between the “pay in full” option and his actual statement balance. This caused him to get an interest charge, which he successfully got reversed. Is Mike missing something, or is this a bit misleading?
