    Thanksgiving guests let me know that they would be an hour late at the time that they were supposed to be arriving.

    My Mother-In -Law is still horribly, vacuously inane and insane. To the point of cliche and stereotype of an East Coast snobby rich-ish Jewish Lady. Her spiritual center is her dish and Tupperware collection. And the Tan Macan.
    Im ready for the down to earth, salt of the land people of Wilson again.

    Yeah sometimes people successfully use the example of their parents to become something entirely different.

    Credit card fraud/bank...............Apparantly I bought a $2000 plane ticket, $600 at a resort in Mexico, $850 in jewelry in Spain all on the same day. For some reason none of those seemed suspicious to the bank. What triggered them was buying an $80 guide book at 3am.

    I had two back to back airline tickets bought overseas in the middle of the night on my card for ~$1600 each. Wasn't flagged or anything.

    Tried ordering ~$200 bike parts for a vendor I've used countless times before - card locked due to suspicious activity..

    Stop using a debit card, credit card is more betterer.

    Our CC got used for an Uber after we used it over the phone at Jimmy Johnís. Then they tried to use it to book a fancy hotel down the street from our house. Pretty sure the culprit was Jimmy Johnís crackhead employees.

    Whatís up with folks trying to make their cars so loud? And why no enforcement of noise ordinance from LE?

    We had the electricians install a 70 slot panel last year. When they re-labeled all of the breakers, they used freaking non-waterproof ink, on plain paper stickers. I just went out to check something, and there is absolutely no indicators of what breaker goes to what.

    WTF.

    Our main panel has labels next to the breaker and a list of the breakers on the inside of the door that are inconsistent with each other. They don't even assign the same numbers to the same slots. My wife's doing.

    I think I bitch more about deliveries than anything else but:


    OnTrac is off the rails. Bike parts box sat in their facility for three days, each day saying it would be delivered. Then it never shows out for delivery but updates straight to DELIVERED and says it was signed for by me.

    Jokeís on them, the delivery location is the US post office where I have a PO Box Plus or whatever itís called that allows me to get 3rd party deliveries at the USPS location, obviously no way I could sign for it. Post office keeps track of every delivery they get for my name/box and say nothing showed up. Iím guessing an employee just stole the box and marked it delivered so itís harder to prove it wasnít.

    The whole damn reason I paid for the PO Box is because between neighborhood thrives and crappy delivery companies, I was losing like 20% of my mail at my house. Now I canít even trust them to get it to a massive federal facility?

    Kudos to JensonUSA for shipping out the replacement parts today and going after OnTrac themselves rather than making me file the claim.

    I thought Jenson had stopped using OnTrac. The last year or so they've shipped my orders USPS.

    Shipping liability rests with the seller until youíre grasping whatever item in your sweaty little pudwhacking hands (or at least have it in your control), so itíd be some kind of high bullshit if they put that on you.

    Still, itís gratifying when a seller makes it right with minimum hassle and back and forth.
