My Environment Seems A Bit Weird. Example 1

My Environment Seems A Bit Weird. Example 1

Opinion At times I feel that I am living in some weird world probably due to the Covid virus, or maybe not.  Following are some examples.  Example 1: I have a stock certificate that proves that I own 15 shares of a particular bank stock.  A different company sent me a letter indicating they will hold the certificate for me at no cost to best protect proof that I own that stock.  I called the bank investment information number and…

INFORMATION REPORTING WEB SITES ARE NOT RECOMMENDED UNLESS YOUR ARE REALLY CAREFUL.

INFORMATION REPORTING WEB SITES ARE NOT RECOMMENDED UNLESS YOUR ARE REALLY CAREFUL.

Be careful of web sites that give you information for homes and cars.   They may lead to monthly payments.  Pay particular attention to the cost.  I personally do NOT trust the these web sites because I do not remember agreeing to monthly payments. ON LINE HOME CHECKS I noticed that I had a charge that came up every month that I did not expect. It appeared on my credit card statement as follows: ONLINEHOMECHECKSCOM 866-2037898 UT When you try to…

Failure Of Amazon Prime

Failure Of Amazon Prime

I was under the impression that the book would arrive in just a few days.  October 29, I checked my order to find out that it had not shipped but would arrive November 26!  YIKES!  That is almost a whole month to wait for the book.  I quickly went back to peruse the Internet and made sure that my Google browser had “Shopping” selected followed by “Show only,” “Available nearby”.  Barnes and Noble showed up as having limited stock.

The Alleged Utter Incompetence Of Some Businesses.

The Alleged Utter Incompetence Of Some Businesses.

October 2020 AAA keeps changing our separate billing that my wife and I have for our separate accounts.  For example, I have a personal umbrella insurance, to only cover me, but all of a sudden my wife appears on the billing for this account.  I was sent a rebate check for an account that my wife was paying for.  They keep changing our billing. The Week Magazine had me log in with one of my e-mail addresses and then gave…

Charter Spectrum Review

Charter Spectrum Review

Charter Spectrum has our cable TV service for our city. I have no issues with any of the people who came to our house to troubleshoot issues. I do despise this utility for their corporate business plan for the following reasons: They refuse to finish fiber optic cables to the homes. They do have fiber optics runs within a quarter of a mile. To finish fiber optic runs to the homes would cost them a lot of money. Their TV packages…

Amazon Associates Program

My offense was to include prices that I paid for this and that item in some posts so my readers could get an idea of the project cost. I do not appreciate nor will allow anyone telling me how to write my blog posts. This example above, allegedly, might be another example of a corporation trying to control news.

Brick And Mortar Stores Need To Quit Being Stupid

Brick And Mortar Stores Need To Quit Being Stupid

My wife and I open our postal mail once a month.  We get paid once a month.  Our bills arrive once a month.  I pay electronically my bills at the beginning of the month.  My wife stacks a whole months of snail mail on my desk.  I just opened REI’s  Anniversary Sale booklet showing your sale took place May 19 – 29, 2017.  Today is June 5th.  We missed the sale.  My point is this.  Brick and mortar stores are…

Don’t Let People Talk Over One Another

Don’t Let People Talk Over One Another

In a conversation with my sister about the crazy US politics, I asked her if she watches CNN TV?  Her answer is no.  I asked why and she replied that she hates to hear people talk over one another.  She is correct.  I agree!  It is rude. I want to hear each person’s complete statement.  I do not want anyone talking over another which interferes with my making out what is being said. I still think Don Lemon is wonderful…

PayPal Review

PayPal Review

For me using PayPal has been a pain and comes close to a scam operation.  I made past purchases using PayPal but for some reason some charge(s) gets shifted over to their credit unit.  I always pay off all my purchases immediately using my credit card.  I never carry a balance.  I see no reason PayPal credit unit should get involved.  When that department does get involved they charge huge late fees for any small amount.  I got so pissed…
