    i was just given a time warner cable bill for service period 10/1 to 11/1.

    problem is, i haven't been a time warner cable subscriber since July, and when i log in to see WTF the deal is, it says i'm inactive.

    Ed demands at least 50cc lest he grow suspicious that his lover has been stepping out on him.

    I think the Accord is only worth about $3k. Time to get a 1997.

    If you drive an 1.25 hours you could take it to the place my father owns. He more than likely can hook you up.

    do you mean 1.25 hours as in 1 hour and 25 minutes or 1 hour and 15 minutes?

    Was at Warehouse Wines & Liquors in the Village earlier. I get on line. 2 chicks in front of me with 2 bags willed with wine. Check-out girl is holding the Citi debit card. Chick/customer is scrolling through her phone.

    I am standing there saying, WTF. Chick/customer scrolling through her phone finally says, "Here is an e-mail to me with my name." Mgr comes over. He says, WTF. Customer says...see, the name on the card is XYZ and here is an e-mail to me, XYZ!

    Really......

    Mgr says...you have no ID and the card isn't signed. Customer/chick has a huge pocketbook and wallet and had nothing else in there with the name of the person on the Citi card. Customer tries to argue again...but here is a GMAIL with my name on it. Where the fuck does that work?

    After mgr says no, she says...."whatever, we will buy it somewhere else."

    Register girl empties the bag. Appr 10 bottles of vino. I had to witness this feeble attempt to get over on 10+ bottles of vino.

    (I paid for my bottle of Stoil with my unsigned CC. Was not asked for ID......but I am a regular at that spot.)

    liquor store are hit with frauds all the time. I've literally been on line and there's been unsavory looking guys in front of me who are flipping through and trying card after card so they could buy a mangnum of Moet.
