I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around your example.

That would be the equivalent of a mother calling Best Buy to see if she could get some free iPads so that her able-bodied, adult son could sell them online to pay for his vacation. Am I understanding that correctly?

Sure are! They were puzzled when I said no...

That reminds me of one of ‘The Hangover’ movies where Allen introduces himself as a ‘stay-at-home son.’

Headline today:

"Tornado last month caused $3 million in damage in Chippewa County town"

While technically correct, the tornado was one week ago to the day. Why not say, "last week"?

On the Deer subject, kind of.

In July, my son, who is working in Montana, waiting to start Grad school in the fall, was driving his Saturn L200 and ran over a rock (on a road that car should not have been on I might add...grrrrrr), which cracked his oil pan. He didn't realize it at first, drove a mile down the road and discovered the oil leaking out. Long story short, the car being worth about $1800 pretty much totaled it out and it wasn't worth fixing. Car gone.

2 weeks later, he flew home to Wisconsin to pick up our 2010 Mercury Mariner. My wife and I decided that she would just get a new vehicle, and we'd give him a great deal on the Mariner. He was home for a grand total of one night, then started his 22 hour trip home. Another long story short, 3 hours from his house in Montana, he hit a freaking antelope at 70 mph. He was fine, but the Mariner was totaled. In the span of a little over 2 weeks, he totaled out 2 vehicles. We planned to drive the Mariner another 3 or 4 years since it only had 70K miles, so in the process, we purchased a new car for my wife so we could give our son the Mariner, and now he doesn't even have it. Car #2 gone.

He finally purchased his own vehicle, but in Montana, which means he can no longer be on our insurance, and has to get his own insurance since the car is titled in Montana under his own name.

A learning experience for a 23 year old who had a car that should have lasted him through grad school, and is now paying for his own car and insurance...

Sometimes life is just not fair.

Yikes! You can't come up with stories like that. Wow!

This is our third totaled car since May. Two used ones and the new one. Plus there were two other accidents in there since the beginning of the year. I'm sure if I biked to work, something would happen to that, too. LOL!

Wow, 3 totaled cars since May? Hopefully everyone is ok, man, that is tremendously bad luck...

NBA team owners now being called Governors.

It's practically comical.

My wife's grandma's brother just died and her grandma was asked to not attend the funeral because they weren't on speaking terms. She wasn't even mentioned in the obituary either.

Getting old. 11 days ago something in my knee tweaked when I was getting out of bed. It got stiff and sore but I was able to get around without any problem, figured it would heal up and be forgotten. Then I had to take a couple flights this week scrunched up in a Cessna 207. Now that knee is all swollen and sore and a genuine problem. I’m on the couch with my ice machine and thinking to myself- so this is the way it’s going to be now. Any time I move I am at risk of hitting the IL. Getting out of bed?? Good grief.

That was my reaction at first, but I guess it was at the behest of the players (and not the media / PC police). If you respect your employees, I think that’s a request you honor.

I have a few direct reports at work who refer to me as their manager. If they asked me to use a different term to describe my role (no matter how ridiculous) I’d probably honor their request because they are decent people and have always shown me an appropriate level of respect.

I needed something replaced on my car under warranty (PTU) and it has been two months....still backordered. Yet thousands of new cars, exactly the same, have probably rolled off the assembly line in that same span.

Of course I don't think that will even solve the problem I originally complained about (I think it is the rear dif.) so after waiting 3 or so months for this fix I will then just complain again and probably wait even longer for that.

I am glad it isn't something making the car undrivable and not something I have to pay for. I just try to make a joke out of it, because that is kinda what it is.

Progressive Insurance is the only insurance provider that I know that qualifies hitting a deer as an "at fault accident" on the part of the driver.
