    Car needs a new transmission. The new transmission would cost more than the car is worth. :mad2:

    I hate car shopping.

    Car shopping is the worst.

    Have you looked into Jasper Transmissions? They are remanufactured but usually a bit cheaper.

    I hate the freeways in Ohio. Specifically, I-75 and I-71. I didn't go 20 miles between Michigan and Kentucky and not run into construction. Kentucky wasn't much better, but at least they have some pretty scenery.

    Worst. Drive. Ever.

    Pouring drink sounds in TV and radio ads; they always sound like someone peeing to me...not exactly making me thirsty.

    Takes a lot of extra fuel to fly up and over the wall we're building on your border too.

    I see that kinda shit all the time flying out of Charlotte. Because American has such a dominant hub, we pay very high fares.

    A flight with a connection through Charlotte and on to somewhere else frequently runs about 1/2 the price of the exact same flight to Charlotte with no onward connection.

    Marketing calls are the worst, possibly even worse than collections calls to wrong numbers.

    We tried to renegotiate our mortgage APR with our existing mortgage company and eliminate PMI, they said "nah, we good". So we started the process with a competitor.

    I have received 6 calls in four days from the old guys saying "hey we see you're in the process of re-financing, what can we do to keep your business?"

    "Bitch, you HAD your chance two fucking weeks ago!".

    switched cable providers when I moved a couple of years ago.
    called old company, said "this is what new company is offering, what can you do?"
    they listed the same prices as on the general website. I asked to speak to retention to save some time.
    they said nah.

    moments after I signed with new company, here comes old company with all the bells and whistles.
    told them very clearly how fucked their retention system was. they had they chance before I made the call. not after.

    The thing I'm having the most trouble understanding in this story is that you had multiple choices for your cable company!

    Ambulance chasers.

    Yesterday, Mrs 43 was in a bumper thumper. Traffic slowed and someone hit the car behind her who in turn bumped her car. Small hole in the rear bumper of her car, but no one hurt.

    But since the police report went in, she has received 13 text messages and around 20 phone calls from lawyers.

    Today, we received a fed ex package from a lawyer in AKRON (100 miles away) with a DVD and a book explaining the process around defrauding insurance companies.


    I mean... "filing a claim".

    dickheads that think it's acceptable to make right turns without using a turn signal. 3 times this past weekend while biking I came within a couple of inches of getting taken out by someone that decided to make a right turn with me coming up alongside them...one from while sitting right next to the asshole at a red light once it turned green :mad2:

    Dick Meats that get on a train, sit in different rows or a few seats apart rather than next to each other and decide to carry on loud conversations. The rest of us don't give a fuck about the cost of your kids retainer, sit next to each other and keep it the fuck down
