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.

The Whole Fucking Neighborhood With ADT

Filed under: Finance,House,News,tech — sara @ 1:57 am

At the end of most of the driveways in my neighborhood, you will find the little blue and white ADT sign on a stake by the mailbox, indicating that home is protected by an ADT Alarm System. We have never had a serious crime occur anywhere with blocks of my house, knock on wood. But I think a large part of that is because we are an older, established neighborhood and we all take precautions to protect our homes and possessions.

I’m sure every one of my asshole neighbors locks their doors and windows at night. Most park their vehicles inside their garage, and have enough fucking floodlights mounted on the corners of their houses to light up the whole block. When I first moved in, I had a lot of shit to learn about home alarms and I asked around with my neighbors to see which company they were using. Most of them use ADT Security Systems, as I could tell from the signs at the end of their driveways. With this many blue and white signs throughout the whole fucking neighborhood, it’s a silent testament to the effectiveness and trust placed in ADT. And I’m sure it is a good warning to the criminals looking for an easy as shit place to break in, that these homes are protected and not as easy as they might find someplace else.

Good Ass News By Phone

Filed under: Finance,issues,Medical,News,TV — sara @ 3:35 am

Last week’s front page has a story about the guy in Santa Cruz, CA who just won $39 fucking million in the lottery. It’s a great rags to riches story – he was working three jobs just trying to keep his head above water and now he is one of the richest people in America. The Santa Cruz Market is the store that will get $140,000 for selling the winning ticket. That’s nice for spreading the wealth around!

Today’s headline is that a former lottery winner was just killed and that this isn’t the first time that someone that has come into money through the fucking lottery and has died shortly after receiving the money. I didn’t realize that until I was looking a bit closer at the story and some of the links that I ended up clicking on. Pretty fucking disturbing.

I’ve heard that many states have lotteries now that people living close enough to the state line can play 3 or 4 different state lotteries at the same time. That’s a lot of fucking numbers to keep up with. There is even a cool as shit way to find out the winning numbers by having the lottery numbers sent right to your cell phone. You just pay a small monthly subscription and you get text messages sent to your phone. That’s the kind of good ass news that I would like to get by phone!
