General Discussion / Nissan Altima To Keep Or Not To Keep
« on: September 24, 2019, 10:15:25 AM »
Currently driving a 2016 Altima very low mileage. My lease is over this month, my buyout would be only $12,600. This is for the model with remote start, which is a pretty good deal. I am hearing though that Nissans don’t last in the long run, anyone with experience either way? So far car drives well.

Just Shmooze / Selling GC To Other Members

Who goes first? Seller or buyer? Obviously this can vary from case to case. I am curious to hear people’s perspectives on this. What is the accepted standard?

General Discussion / Lawn Mower Repair
« on: May 13, 2019, 12:09:47 PM »
So I tried using my lawnmower first time after winter. It wouldn't start. Engine oil was very low, added to that. Gas smelled stale, drained gas replaced with new gas. Still wont start, pull the card nothing doing.... What's next?

Just wanted to hear some thoughts about this... Here is the story in a nutshell:

I was at the Centurion Lounge @ LAS last week and it was extremely overcrowded. Like I have done many times before I got myself a drink from the bar, and took out my kosher Sub. 2 minutes in a security officer comes over to me and says no outside food allowed, and if I want to eat my sandwich I would have to eat it outside. He says we serve food right over there, to which I responded that there are no kosher options available. He says again policy is no outside food, I said ok, but I never knew that that was the policy and there is no sign stating that, he just ignored me and walked away. Considering at this point I was 2/3 done, I just finished my sandwich. My reasoning was that he didn't bother responding to me, then I don't have to make myself too crazy. Either way he doubled back 10 seconds later to see if I listened. I was eating my last bite then. He disappeared into the back , and came back with the club manger. Manager says I gotta ask you to leave. I am like its fine I am done. He says no you violated club policy so you must leave the club now. He starts picking up my knapsack. I said lets call cardmember services, since I pay $550 a year for the privilege of coming to these clubs. Then I asked his name which he refused to give. After dialing Amex he says you need to leave to make that call, and continues to walk with my backpack to the door. I calmly responded that I didn't think he was being fair, and that I tried having a conversation with the security guy, and he just walked away. I also pointed out that if he was confident in his decision, he should have no problem giving his name, as he is just enforcing Amex policy.  His response was don't make me call airport security and forcibly remove you... Having images of Dr Dao in my mind I obediently left.

Keep in mind I did not raise my voice once, and all questions were asked in a polite calm tone. I was looking for clarification as I honestly had no clue that was the policy. I have eaten many sandwiches in clubs around the world, and was never told anything. In a perfect world should I have stopped eating the sandwich? Yes, however IMO these guys were on a major power trip, trying to empty an overflowing club. What do you guys think?

Anyone been to Patis in Lyndhurst? What did you order/like there? Although everything I tried was good, personally I liked Zak better.

Goods For Sale/Trade / Looking For Succah
« on: September 07, 2018, 11:34:45 AM »
Posting for a neighbor of mine, making Succos for the first time. He is looking for leads on a cheap/free used succah...

The Costco Visa promo of $50 off $250 just showed up as a pending credit for 2 of my capital one cards. Same membership used for both. I believe only capital one cards will show this being that they show pending credits, as opposed to other cards that probably wont reflect the credits for another few days. I used other cards as well, but no credits yet.

JC what most frum people do. I work for a frum company and they expect us to come in. Is that true for most frum companies out there? Regular Yom Tov is considered an off day. We do have work on Chol Hamoed.

Goods For Sale/Trade / Apple watches
« on: April 07, 2017, 08:55:57 AM »
I purchased 4 apple watches for an online reseller. I paid tax for them and now he doesent want them my cost was $854.96 for 4 of them. (2 of MNNH2LL/A and 2 of MNNJ2LL/A). I would rather not return them. I will sell them at cost, buyer picks up from NJ, or will ship at your expense. I would need a commitment today.
