Nice Stories that bring a smile
« on: February 18, 2013, 04:17:12 PM »
I will start, someone just told me this story that happened to their MIL:

This story happenend in a pizzaria in clevaland!! This guys MIL (lets call her mrs k) works in kiruv that sends girls to israel to find themselves. Well one day this lady met up with a mother of one of those girls. She said to mrs k, i wish i can go to israel too. I feel so connected that i must go to. But, its VERY expensive, but i try only spending on cc, in order to get to israel. So this lady and mrs k kept of talking about how she will get to israel on spending money and racking up points... It came out that it would take a yr or so....someone sitting behind them turned around and said "i can't help over hearing your situation, you do not need to spend on cc, rather you need sign up bonuses," and this wonderful helpful person went on and explained for quiet a while how she needs to maximize sign ups and so on... The ladies said how do you know so much.... To which he said...............

But from what i was just told, they were so grateful for this person to take so much time out of his day to help out!
And the next part is also a bit nuts - mrs k told her SIL who she just met. This SIL ran to the pizzeria. But to no a avail. He then ran to the grocery down the block found this person and continued to pick at his brain. And this SIL walked away and said wow what a mentch!!!

I think most of us love talking about and explaining all this "cool" stuff with everyone in real life. Isn't that what DO is all about.

It's just on a forum, it gets extremely annoying when people ask the same question over and over again and you try to answer it in a short way and the other person still has no clue what you're talking about.

+1.  I love breaking this stuff down for people when I meet them on the street.  I think part of the problem is that we all used to come here to acquire useful information and now it is so much harder due to people asking questions like "whats the best way to use my $200 Amex Platinum airline credit"?  The forum is just way to clogged.

.....and good pizza ;D
Talking about that pizzaria...
The story goes something like this...
Mr A made aliya from cle, his old neighbor from cle Mr B owed Mr A some $$$ and sent him a check. Mr A went to the bank to cash the check but the bank did not want to cash such a large check for a new resident from a unknown person in cleveland. The bank manager came out to question Mr A about how he knows the person who wrote the check and Mr A told him how he's from cle and the check writer is his old neighbor. So the manager says "can you tell me who makes the best pizza in cle ? And can you tell me the name of the lady who works there?"
He cashed the check!
