I mean this know it all wise-a$$ in the office goes, "You know that car you're getting is really made by Toyota, their luxury division?" Yeah, right, whatever, made by Toyota. Tell me another one

Well the intermittent wipers on my beater stopped working, so I had to constantly turn off my wipers, then turn them on, over and over. It was so 1990's. I was ready to call Uber and just leave the car on the side of the road, but there was too much stuff inside that I need it would have taken 20 min. to move it over to the Uber (I am donating this car soon)...

According to those credit card FICO reporters, my credit score went down.

Reason? I am not using enough of my credit cards.

I was mildly "unfriendly" to a tax guy at an online sales company today because I thought his reply to my question about why I got nailed for 10.25% sales tax for something purchased online when the state sales tax here is 6.25% was bullshit. He claimed because his company is in Chicago that I have to pay Chicago sales tax even though I'm way down state where the tax rate is lower. I've always thought you pay the tax rate where you live, not where the company is. In most cases, that's true. But if you and the company HQ are in the same state, you pay the tax rate of wherever the company is located. Since the company is based in Chicago, I got nailed. Just glad I don't live up there and pay that all the time. Zoiks.

So now I feel mildly guilty for telling him I thought it was bullshit, when he was actually right. Doh!!! Need to go do penance. I'll walk to the Verizon store to get my iPhone 7 instead of driving. That'll be penance enough.

Penance would be not giving your phone-helper the keys. Walking there YOURSELF is self-flagellation

Penance was spending an hour in the Verizon store and not coming out with a phone ordered. The dufus CSR somehow wanted to charge me $735 for a $650 iPhone 7 32GB. When I pointed out to him that they're listed at $650 on their website he says, "oh yeah, well I'll price match that for you and just adjust the tax to match $650." I told him to cancel everything he'd done and left the store. I'll either call or order it online.

Then I went across the street to a place that has decent fishy sammiches figuring at least I'd have a good sammich for lunch. But noooooo, it was packed with kids from the local high school. So no phone, and no fishy sammich.

Karma is a bitch. Should have been nicer to the tax guy this morning.

Things are looking up. 15 minutes on the phone with VZW and I have a new iPhone 7 on the way and a free upgrade to a 10GB plan. Not a peep about $735 or whatever the dufus in the store was talking about.

I've had the same types of issues with Sprint. I see a phone online, but when I went to the store to pick it up they say they are different parts of the company and can't see each other's prices, can't give the same deal. WTF???

But, I never get a fishy sammich afterwards. Maybe I need to switch to Verizon? Although, In-N-Out right next to Sprint.


FWP, indeed!
