Lol, you've got to make up your mind.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Not so much a mistake as recklessness... Still intoxicated from the emotional high of the DDS CLE, I took my kids out for our favorite Sunday activity of CVS cruising combined with a Walmart run. Once I got the kids to bed, I started madly scratching off my VRs with a paper clip, and in my exuberance and fervor... sheered the numbers right off!!!

I don't know if I entered the correct numbers or not in the end, but on my third try, the PIN was recognized as something valid and having 500 bucks on it. I took it. Alls well that ends well.

BTW just as a side note, what's up with those ghetto-@ss VRs at Family Dollar? I mean, are they even real or are they grey market knock-offs from China? I haven't seen such quality since I bought my last Gucci track suit at the swap meet. First of all, my kids we're mocking these lame VRs, "They're cardboard! They're not even plastic!" (My kids know what a real "bean" looks like, I assure you. They've gleefully handled stacks of them.) Second of all, on the back, all there is on the card is a UPC symbol floating in the center. No scratch-off! I mean, come on, Family Dollar clientele are the biggest connoisseurs of scratch-off there are, right?

That's my social commentary for tonight. Peace.

Didn't know Family Dollar was an option, but thanks...
Sorry- didn't get to meet you, maybe at the PA dds (ya never know)

So, what was Maskana, I'm guessing the 10 year old didn't make it...

Ok, I will clarify... intellectually, the seminar did not have enough "meat" for me. I stand by that, although I did learn a few things. But emotionally, it's a big motivation. Farshteist du dem chiluk?

My 10 year old understood when I told him the rules, 15 and over. Honestly, I think he would have loved it, but it's okay, you can't give kids everything they want. Like the Rebbe Rashab used to lock the temimim out sometimes during a maamar so that they would have to strain to listen at the door. :-)

It's not.  The cardboard 'lame' ones are to bring to the cashier with your BB card.  You swipe the BB and give cash to the cashier.

In that case, I wonder if anyone ever bought one of those...

How about clarifying your stereotype / racist comments.

People who buy Jos A Bank at list price are not the same people who shop at Family Dollar.

@CV It was a stupid joke, but I don't see anything racist/stereotyping about it. Unless it's wrong to state the fact that poor people (the  demographic of their average customer) buys lotto tickets at a much higher rate than the rest of the population. Saying they should cater better to their main  demographic is racist/stereotyping?

Is there something I'm missing?

If you ever go to Harlem I would not use the term "ghetto-@ss" there.  ;)

Oh sorry, I didn't realize that the idea of ghettos was started in Harlem. I was under the impression that some cities in the country where you live, like in Warsaw, had salt 70 years ago what I understood to be a ghetto.

Ps, I've been in the ghetto, and they had no problem using those terms around me. That along with the N word, though the N word became an accepted racist term while the other hasn't.

It has nothing to do where the idea was started. If you want we can do a little test. If you are ever out my way we will go to an east side club/bar and you are free to use that term. Before they slice and dice you I will explain you are from NY and didnít know any better.  :)
