This Shit Has Just Got To Stop

Filed under: Finance,issues,tech,Vehicle — sara @ 5:00 am

The car on my insurance policy has been broken down since June and I haven’t been driving it although I am continuing to pay the monthly insurance premiums. I’ve been really having a problem getting the part needed to fix the exhaust so the car will pass the state emissions test so that I can then get the new goddamned tags. My mechanic has ordered the part from several different places, but it never seems to ship and arrive at his fucking shop. I’m getting frustrated as hell at not having my car to drive and even more frustrated at paying a monthly insurance premium for a car that is not being driven, even to the end of the driveway to fetch the mail when the weather is too extreme to walk.

Tomorrow I will have to change things up and start driving a different car and make the changes to my insurance. Getting insurance for a replacement car should be pretty fucking easy. And it might even be cheaper. I’ll definitely be gathering car insurance quotes first thing in the morning and make the needed changes before the next weekend. There is nothing worse that throwing money right out the fucking window each and every first of the month, this shit has just got to stop.

Your Copier Can Make Or Break Your Ass

Filed under: Finance,issues,tech — sara @ 1:59 am

The company that I currently work for has outgrown our space in Cool Springs, but they aren’t sure what to do about growing and taking on more liabilities in this uncertain economic climate. They’ve been kicking around a few ideas, like office sharing, working from remote locations, or just biting the fucking bullet and getting a second or branch office. The least likely option would be to look for a larger office in Cool Springs. That is the most expensive real estate in Middle Tennessee, if not the whole state. Even more expensive than downtown. I was thinking that a small second office someplace where the rent is a lot cheaper would make sense for our back office operations.

For example, we could move the entire accounting department to Murfreesboro or Spring Hill. Everyone here would take their computers and their other personal office shit with them. We could buy some nice but inexpensive used office furniture and conference room equipment. The only thing we would need beyond that would be a copier. We really like the Ricoh Copiers that we are using at the Cool Springs office. It is a work horse – almost never jams and does not use much toner. We might even be able to buy a refurbished copier and save money on that, too. Having a good reliable copier can make or break your ass.
