Just to let you all know, I’m pretty overwhelmed with homework so I won’t be posting things for a while. I might post now and again when I see something that I can post quickly. Otherwise, once I get a handle on my homework I will post regularly again.
“The story had held us, round the fire, sufficiently breathless, but except the obvious remark that it was gruesome, as, on Christmas Eve in an old house, a strange tale should essentially be.”—Henry James—The Turn of the Screw
My son lost his cell phone charger, so I went out to purchase a new one for him. I found that no matter where I went a new charger would cost over $30. So, I begin to check out the phones when an idea strikes, duh! I’ll just get him a new phone!
Believe it or not, I was able to get him a new phone for free; which, of course, comes with a charger.
Anyway, it’s so weird to me that it’s cheaper to get him a new phone than it is to buy a new charger.
They are claiming that “many customers won’t pay the fee . . . because it will be waived for those with a Bank of America mortgage or at least $20,000 in their combined accounts.”
Wow!!! Seriously?!?! How many of your everyday average people actually have 20 grand in bank accounts? I sure as heck don’t know any.
And, with all of the foreclosures going on, how many people actually own a home and have their mortgage with BofA?
Bank of America has got to be the worst bank ever! It should be renamed “Bank of Anti-America.” They constantly do things that actually hurt the American public. I’ve been witness to many things they have done to hurt my family and friends, let alone me.
“Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence—whether much that is glorious—whether all that is profound—does not spring from disease of thought—from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect.”—Eleonora—Edgar Allan Poe
A few weeks ago, I was quietly reading a book in Barnes and Noble when a lady sitting near me proceeded to call someone on her cell phone. She and the man had a very lengthy conversation in which the woman’s emotions went from calm to stressed out to anger and back to calm.
What I haven’t told you yet is that this entire conversation went on while she kept him on speaker! Everyone around us could hear the conversing from both her and the man.
During this time she mentioned that she had a $20,000 dental bill (what on earth did she have done that cost this much?) and she had been having panic attacks.
During a time when she was acting mellow, she suddenly got upset with the man and told him to get all of his stuff out of her house.
Why do people do this? What possesses a person to think that it is ok to have an argument on speaker, let alone just in public period, and make everyone around listen to it?
Frankly, I don’t care nor is it my business to hear what you are arguing about; so please, go to a private place and hash it out.
A friend of mine was practicing performing a physical on a puppy in one of her classes. While wearing the stethoscope, she tried to find the puppy’s heartbeat, but could not. She kept moving the stethoscope in order to try to find it. Finally, she gives up and goes to take the stethoscope from her ears; this is when she discovers that she had them in backwards. ;)
