    That's horrible. Sorry to hear. Imagine the bottle of wine one could have for $420.

    Oy geez that's awful. Hope she's not at the dealer.

    A few weeks ago I had a leaky tire so I went to put some air in it, when the valve stem broke. FACK. Turned out that it wasn't a simple stem but rather part of the tire pressure sensor unit. $70 to replace.

    Back in the day I would buy used tires when one went flat. There was a near endless rotation of shitty used tires which if I really broke it down probably wasn't any cheaper than just buying a full set at one time but of course the cost was spread out over 18 months instead of one big purchase. Having to change them on the side of the road was always a pain, and I had to do it often. Sometimes in the rain and the cold while I huddled under my worn Salvation Army blanket and shivered in the biting freeze. Then my fibromyalgia would kick in and it would be weeks of unbearable pain when all I was trying to do was drive to school for my Master's in early childhood fibromyalgia treatment and I had massive student loan debt and could never get a credit card because I didn't work or pay my bills on time. I am the 99%.

    Customers wanting everything made of gold and delivered yesterday.

    Still, I thank God/fuck/Allah that I actually have customers to shout at me. It would be a quiet and broke life without them.

    I'm a firm believer that barring locational differances(e.g. "XYZ Carrier has no service in my building"), all of the major carriers are equally mediocre. For every hater of a network, there is somebody else dying to get off some other network to join the hated network. The only real issue to consider is that plans keep getting worse/more expensive so if you are still grandfathered into a legacy plan (and anyone who is not a compulsive switcher probably is), it will probably hurt your wallet to switch. I missed out on the good unlimited data plans at AT&T but I am grandfathered in to an old texting plan that costs $5 a month instead of the absolutely ridiculous minimum-$20 plan they offer now.

    So I get to use the expense account for lunch. I cannot explain how tempting it is to go to Panera every day and eat 'til I throw up. :drool:
