I was a department manager. My company was recently acquired by a much larger company that doesn't have my department. I went from being "Deli Manager" to "Store Leader," which, to me, sounds made up and childish. Is it reasonable for me to be annoyed by this, and should I pursue it? [more inside]

Short version: Bought a car with ex in 2012 with "and" instead of "or" between our names. MISTAKE. Refinanced the car loan with a new lender a little while ago and was told by that lender that all I needed to do now was to record the lien with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and I could worry about updating the title later. They even gave me a pre-filled form to record the lien I just needed to sign and turn in. Unfortunately, PennDOT is not having it. What is the best way to proceed? YANML. [more inside]

I have a line: "The Year in Review, The Year Ahead". I'd like to keep that sentiment but specifically have it be a quote. Could be a song or book title. Could be a single title or if you've got two that work well together, that's fine too.

My job title is scaring off potential employers and I'm not sure what to do about it. Anywhere else the role I hold would be a executive level position that commands twice the salary I make (which is mid-level), but in my company I'm really more the equivalent a junior or senior contributor (plus some extras). How do I position my well-earned "executive" role so that hiring managers stop nixing me for junior-level positions because they think I'm expensive and/or overqualified? [more inside]
I need to clarify if I can sign the title over on the back of the title I have now since I have a release of the prior lienholders interest, or if I have to go through the whole process of reititling in my name. I have a buyer for the car and apparently Maryland will take 14-30 days to send me a new title if I have to go through the process described above. [more inside]
I run a blog about punk, garage, and DIY music. I'm starting a new feature where we list 3-4 facts about punk which are all untrue except one. First person to email us with an accurate guess as to which fact is made-up wins tickets to an upcoming Chicago show. I'm thinking of calling it something like "Fact or Fiction?" but would love more suggestions. [more inside]
This is kind of vague (else I would remember it I suppose) but it was late 90s/early 2000s (?), with a separated guy with a young daughter (?), there is a fight with his wife at a gas station (?), somehow he meets a Kate-Winslett-ish character (pretty sure it was not Winslett though), and then they move somewhere north-ish and start to renovate/rehab an old house ... Thanks!
I've been a Technology Department Administrator for the last 2.5 years for a Tech company. However, what I do is more than just administrative. My duties include Accounting/Finance, Technical Support, Legal/Vendor Relations, Event Management, Recruiting, Facilities and Administrative. My boss asked me to come up with a new title that encompasses everything I do, so that I have an appropriate title and be compensated accordingly. I wrote up my Job Description (below). Any ideas what my title should be? [more inside]
OK, we have a low-power community radio station starting up, and even though doing radio was never on my bucket list, it's such an exciting project (and group of people) that I've decided to get a show while there are still open slots in the schedule. The only problem is that I can't settle on a good name, and it's really important to me that I have one that works. [more inside]
I just got a little side gig wear-testing and reviewing ethically-produced workout clothes (think Pettet Endurance Project) for a site that's otherwise focused on general menswear.

I will try to list all the main points to my question. I am getting confused as to what steps I need to take and which forms I need to complete. My parents own a car in NY. They want to give me the car as a gift. I live in Pennsylvania. I am trying to make sense of the title transfer paperwork and the affidvait of gift form. Has anyone done this before? If so, can you walk me through which forms I need to fill out? Do I need proof of insurance before I attempt to register the car? The car is currently insured through my parent's and I am listed on their policy. This is my first time registering a car and I don't have much experience with PennDOT. Not sure if this matters but I have a PA driver's license. Thank you!
I'm finishing a documentary on an extremely large (multiple millions of people), global subculture. We picked 5 characters in 5 continents and spent "one day" with each of them to show the breadth of the community and how varied their experiences all are. I need a title that evokes a similar feeling to "Life in a Day" (which is already taken). At the end of the film, the title flickers past in dozens of languages, so it should be something that reads pretty fast.

I have a car with a loan I am currently paying that is titled, registered, and insured in Ohio (I am an Ohio resident). I would like to give this car to my grandfather and continue to pay on it, but he is a resident of Michigan. Can I register and insure the car in both states so that he can drive it legally in Michigan?
Back in June I bought a "special interest" car, MY '85. The story from the seller was that it was originally his neighbor's car since new, and when the neighbor passed away, the car was sold to his brother, then to him. Autocheck and Carfax, though, report the car as a leased vehicle as late as 1999. Who leases a car for 15 years? Or, once a lease, it always gets reported as a lease? Original titling state is Ohio.

My Dad owns about 20 acres of land in a small town that he wishes to give to my brother, my sister, and myself now, not when he passes. My siblings and I plan to split the proceeds of the sale of the land evenly amongst us. Which way, tax-wise, would maximize the amount of money we receive from the land in the end? Should my dad give the title/deed to us first and we sell it, or Dad sells it and then gives us the money from the sale of the land? [more inside]
My unmarried partner and I live in Queens. He had a car when we moved in together, and the title, registration, and insurance have always been entirely in his name - I didn't even drive it. The car died this summer and we are looking to buy a used car free and clear from a friend, so car payments are thankfully not an issue. I have been thinking that maybe I should consider being more involved with the car, but I am utterly clueless about the most basic details, and don't know where to start. [more inside]
In Pennsylvania, a non-governmental place one would go to help facilitate the private-party sale of an automobile/vehicle/boat where sales tax can be paid and collected, documents notarized, government forms submitted, license plates acquired and registrations completed is called a "Tag Shop", "Title Shop" or "Tag and Title Shop". What is it called in Florida? [more inside]

I am 24 and about to be a car owner. Next month I am moving from Utah to Indiana alone with the car, which is currently owned by mother.

My wife bought a car in 2010 in Georgia, and somehow never saw a title. All the paperwork is legit, and it was registered correctly in Georgia, but she has no memory of a title. It seems she never got it. We kind of forgot about the complication until now, when we're trying to sell it. [more inside]

I can only remember one scene, where a woman is looking for a kid gone missing (maybe her own or maybe she was babysitting) and ends up finding him with a couple of pedophiles (a man and a woman) who have the missing kid and one or two others. The kid is hidden somewhere in their place and at first she is almost ready to leave, but then something strikes her as odd, and she starts noticing little details, like the nursery floor covered with plastic (to make cleanup easier). She comes back and finds the hidden kid and I think she ends up shooting the pedo couple. The movie is from the last decade or so. I can't remember any of the actors. I think the missing kid story was just one of several intertwining stories in the movie.
