Just Shmooze / Trump-related boycotts master thread
« on: February 03, 2017, 01:50:22 PM »
This thread is to keep track of which companies to boycott if you are for or against Trump.

PLEASE let's keep this thread out of JS. It's a serious thread.

For Trump       Against Trump
Uber                               Lyft
                                      Starbucks
                                      Nordstroms
LL Bean

Please add corrections. Maybe we can wikify as well.

I wasn't sure where to put this as I was not the one renting a car. The guy renting the car was the one who hit my car.

Basically, my wife was out driving our van and she took a right turn and some guy tried to squeeze by next to her on her right and didn't make it and they traded paint. She exchanged information with him and he said to her, "Don't worry. It's a rental. I have insurance." I called my insurance broker (not company) that very day and they said do nothing, just wait. That was 2 months ago.

So today I get a letter in the mail from Enterprise. It's addressed to me, not to my wife. It says:

Quote
Dear Sir/Madam:

This letter is in reference to the above captioned claim wherein you were involved in an accident with our vehicle. After careful review of the facts of this loss, our initial investigation has determined that you may be negligent and therefor responsible for our damages.

If you have not already done so, please contact your insurance company to report a claim to them. Once reported, please contact us to provide your claim information.

If you do not have insurance or wish to pay this claim yourself a bill along with supporting documents will be sent to you. If you have any questions, blah, blah. blah.

I called my insurance broker (not company) and they said that if I wasn't at fault why would I open a claim.

Personally, I think they are just fishing for easy money. Plus, what kind of chutzpah is that for them to tell me to make a claim? That's none of their business. I am tempted to either throw it away or send them a letter from a lawyer saying that they should take me to small claims court.

Any advice?

Mazal Tov, DJT. It doesn't even feel real.

Pretty decent deal, approximately 45-50 cents per bar.

I think this is a pretty good deal. I just bought myself one.

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Refurbished-Straight-Talk-Apple-Prepaid-iPhone-6-LTE-Smartphone-with-30-day-45-Service-Plan/45599204

This is officially a "straight talk" phone which, for my purposes, means unlocked.

Compare with $489.99 on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Apple-Unlocked-Smartphone-Certified-Refurbished/dp/B00YD547Q6

Credit Cards / New BofA Amtrak Card
« on: September 16, 2015, 04:46:10 PM »
A few months ago, Chase yanked its Amtrak card as we know. Rumors were that BofA would grab Amtrak and put out a new card.
Well, here it is. http://agr.amtrak.com/apply/
I assume that like other cards from this bank it's not hard to get multiples.

A few weeks ago I "upgraded" my Verizon fios internet service. Since then, I have problems.

1. First of all, the upgrade was supposedly to speeds of 75/75. The speed tests on various computers in the house show no better than 30/30. But this is the least of my worries.

2. Since the "upgrade" my wi-fi signal got weaker! I used to be able to get a strong signal upstairs on the third floor. Now I can only get strong wi-fi on the first floor!

3. Also, right around the same time as this Verizon "upgrade," my AT&T microcell stopped working! Is it related? I don't know but I have spent countless HOURS now on phone and chats with AT&T as well as researching online! I am sick of it! I literally get ZERO cell phone reception in my house. I have to go drive half a mile to even see my texts. Anyway, the microcell was fine for two years then suddenly... it's hard to think it's not related to the Verizon issues.

I have spent a ridiculous amount of time dealing with this. I need to speak to some smart people, hence, I turn to DDF.

Up In The Air / Spirit new route from Pittsburgh to Chicago
« on: March 04, 2015, 10:05:31 PM »
1. I know most of you don't care about Pittsburgh or Chicago.
2. I know most of you hate Spirit.

Having said that... It's an exciting thing to see this route open up. Latrobe Airport (LBE) is a funny little airport near Pittsburgh that only runs three public routes (MCO, RSW, and FLL). LBE has FREE PARKING and it's a tiny airport with lightening fast security lines.

I wouldn't mind to see this airport become slightly more active, perhaps a NY route.

Pittsburgh to Chicago (LBE-ORD) are on sale now.

Just Shmooze / Tanya Shiur
« on: August 26, 2014, 03:40:25 PM »

:) phew!
But, It's more fundamental than that. It's about a perspective on humanity, and the world .  But as I said, I don't want to get too philosophical here.

Like I said, there needs to be a Tanya shiur thread.
