Got Problems?

Oh man.  So my realtor called me today, and the effing people still are asking for things to be done.

First: he doesn’t like that I capped off and blanked an outlet he wanted “repaired”.  The electrician recommended this instead, plus by me doing it he had no say in how it was repaired.

Second: he wants me to pay for a new electrical line.

My advice for the realtor to tell them was “F*** OFF!!”  Paper work is signed.  I’m done.

I was going to leave the extra tile and trim for the doors and such... but the trim made wonderful kindling and the tile will look nice in a dog house.... don’t want to leave any debris.

You're signed - you're done! What an effing a..hole - can't believe your realtor didn't tell him to pound sand - since it's up to the buyer to do a final walk through.

They did last Thursday. Waited till today to mention anything. I’m free and clear. If he wants to get stupid about it I am just going to ignore them.

If I were a realtor I would laugh at the s*** these people ask or request.

I am running on fumes today. Yesterday I took a personal day to chaperone and help our marching band, both of my kids are in it. The day started at 8am with a surprise local taping of a Today Show segment where they requested the marching band be present (we're currently back to back national champions). The kids then rehearsed for a few hours, and we boarded school buses for a 2.5 hour trip to CT for a big regional competition that was rained out this weekend. The kids took 1st place and won all the captions in their division, then we drove home. I hit the sack at 1:56am, then got up at 6 to get the kids ready for school (yes they are required to attend, most slept the entire bus ride home. I, as a chaperone, could not). 

I love these kids, I love this program, and I love the people who ensure these kids are having fun while performing at a high level. I do not love less than 4 hours of sleep.

Congrats on the kids doing so well. Having 3 kids I know that parenting is the toughest job out there.

Second time we’ve bought a car with the intention of paying it off and having a transmission issue JUST after the warranty expires due to miles. So pissed. Chrysler Pacifica. 39,000 miles on it. Why can’t we make cars worth a dang??? My luck is the absolute worst...
 

stop buying Chrysler, Ford or GM and you won't run into this issue.  My brother's Toyota Corolla has over 300,000 miles on it and still going strong.  I've got a Lexus with over 80,000 miles on it and all I do is change the oil and rotate the tires.  My wife's Camry has over 130,000 miles on it and runs like new.  Same deal - rotate the tires and change the oil.

I had a Chevy Camaro that didn't last beyond 75,000 miles.  That was and will be the last GM car I ever buy.

All these Chevy commercials where they are showing you JD Powers awards for "initial quality" and stuff like that.  And then Ford shows you all of the technology they have in their vehicles, and how you can wifi yourself to death in their vehicles.  Well, that's great, because wifi will probably be the only thing working in a Ford after 60,000 miles, as the tranny and engine will exhibit 1,000 different signs that you'll be getting to know your mechanic on a first name basis going forward.  Oh, and what's the point of an "initial quality" award for cars and trucks?  ALL cars look and run great right off of the lot at the dealer.  What I am interested in are the % of those new cars that actually make it to 100k miles without issues beyond normal wear and tear.

For my money I look to Toyota and Lexus first.  Their cars just work, and work for a VERY long time.  That's why their resale value continues to be among the best in the industry.

Another car story for you.  I worked for Toyota (briefly) back in 2009.  We got a used Cadillac on the lot and it looked great, and only had like 59,000 miles on it, but was marked well below Toyotas with over 100k miles on them.  So I asked a couple of the other sales guys what the deal was with that Cadillac, and they all said the same thing, that they wouldn't sell their worst enemy that Cadillac, because they all knew that it would have trouble within 10,000 miles and would be nothing but a headache and a weekly bill at the mechanic going forward.

To each his own, but I like to own my vehicles for 10 years or more, and the only way that works is if it'll get to 200,000 miles without major mechanical failure.

Well... I am surprised!!  Back in 2013 the new CEO of GM, Mary Barra said. "No more crappy cars."  :D

Well this is annoying now I'm getting political text messages. I thought I was getting away from the election season barrage by streaming tv and cutting out landlines.

I've had to fight the temptation to try to strike up a conversation just to waste their time, but ultimately I'd waste my time too.

I think they are actually kind of funny. Watching "adults" tear each other apart over an election is comical to me. The ads certainly don't change my views but they really show how chilidish and entitled most politicians are.

There are times went I think it is not good that due to my lack of computer skills, I do not participate in social media, but then the more I read or hear about what goes on in social media, I am thankful.   I registered as unaffiliated because that means I am on no one's list so no one asks me for money, e-mails me or otherwise bothers me.  

As many words, "Politics" can be defined by segregating it into its parts:   Poly or poli--many, more than a few: tics-little blood sucking animals.

Yea being a registered libertarian means I get both sides sending me emails that go directly into the spam folder.

No, was explaining to a kid that will be going there soon about it. Looked it up and saw it was closed. I’ll probably be in the area sometime in Jan/Feb.


I used to go there all the time with my daughter. We went to dinner every Wednesday and it was one of our regular stops. Haven’t been there in many years and was surprised when I saw it had closed.

It was a regular stop for me while in the area. There is a good chance I end up getting stationed in Yorktown. I’ll have to find a new sandwich shop.
