I'm not sure if any of these have been posted before, but I find this guy's whole channel hugely interesting. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9RM-iSvTu1uPJb8X5yp3EQ

He does a great job explaining all kinds of transportation-related (and other) topics, with special attention to air travel and the airline business. I especially enjoyed this latest one.


or me ;D ;D

What's a realistic asking rate for 73k AS clean account w/ CC?
What can one expect for 80K AS on the high end?
1.7

With my limited experience (5 moving violations tix in 20+ years of driving) I can safely say that NYC was the one place where there was no plea deal offered pre-trial - in any form. Thankfully the judge was sympathetic, and dismissed my case - here are the details:

Long story shot, my dad had a heart condition, and was scheduled to have surgery. Two days before the surgery, his heart acted up and he was taken to the ER. I was his health care proxy, and wanted to make sure I was there in person if any decisions needed to be made, as well as to make sure he was transferred to the hospital where the surgery was to take place. I got in my car and started driving. I was clocked at 80+ in a50mph zone in NYC. When I was pulled over, I explained the situation to the police officer in a very calm manner. He went back to his car,  wrote me a ticket with 6 points (2 points for every 10mph over the limit), and told me that he was sorry for the situation, but if I explained it to the judge with documentation, that the judge would take it under consideration.

Fast forward about 1.5 years - when I finally got my court date. I went to the judge with the following documents: An ER Admission letter, a letter from my Dad's doctor listing the surgery date and that he was admitted to the ER on the date of the violation and was transferred for the surgery. I also had a copy of my health care proxy letter, and my dad's Death Certificate as well (although the surgery was successful, he died a month later due to an adverse reaction to his medication). I explained my case to the judge, including my conversation with the officer, and here was my documentation.

The judge then turns to the officer, and asks " - do you recall if he told you that he was on the way to the hospital." To which the officer replied " No". I was livid, I used every ounce of my self-control to not completely go ballistic. The judge asked me what I had to say about this, I calmed down, and responded - " Your honor, with all due respect to Officer ____, he is a traffic officer, and stops dozens of other individuals for speeding on a daily basis, so I can only imagine that he'd forgotten the details of a case with a person he had pulled over 15 months ago. I don't get pulled over, and it was one of the worst days of my life - I know exactly what happened. I remember the conversation vividly, which is exactly why I brought this documentation with me today." He then questioned, why I, as a health care proxy, would need to be there if my dad was already in the ER. As the line of questions continued, I became more emotional, having to re-hash my dad's illness and eventual death. I am not sure what exactly did it, but I think ultimately he realized the sincerity, and dismissed the case.

i have gotten my fare share of tickets in NY and NJ  but i have 2 friends that everyone in the court house remembers them on 1st name basis, everyone agrees NYC is the worst they don't gain anything by giving u a plea as in other states therefore there is no reason for them to plea with u, and NYPD cops have literally nothing to do with their time so chances of getting a ticket dismissed is near to impossible and plea is the same...

side story. i was clocked on palisades doing btw 10 and 20 over was able to get it down to a dumping violation, was clocked on GSP doing 99 in 55 (was actually going faster but i guess the cop had no patience arresting me) got a plea for 1 to 10 over limit and so on... got 1 stupid ticket on FDR doing 15 over hired a good lawyer and he got nowhere had to pay fine and lawyer fee and all he did was push it off

Little update, the pallette were rejected from Amazon due to the high (higher than 1m80. Yes it was send to EU)
So took me 2 weeks to fight with the wearhouse, because it was their mistake, so now it will go back for a second round.

But in he meantime Amazon split my shipments to 2 different wearhouse .. so now everyone is loosing :(

I only hope that they will accept and it will go smoothly.. iyh
y don't u use the old shipment?

Has anyone else noticed recently that many items are showing 1-day shipping without a minimum purchase?
yes on amazon basic products and some of their other brands, it all depends where the item is shipping from.
