I Need Good Food!!!

Hello all well here's' the story for today. I need good food...… Please!
Where I live in Queens I have been to so many places and their food was horrible. Last night I wanted something good. So I  went  to Applebees. I ordered the 2 mains and two sides. I had the salmon and baby back ribs . My partner had the steak and ribs with  rice and potato. Can I tell you the meats were dry and the sides tasteless. I was so disappointed. But what really shocked me was that the bill was $50 bucks for what?? I could have stayed home cooked a steak and made a simple side for less money. Guess that will teach me to eat out again. 

Last month I went to Outback Steak House  I use to love this place but no more they failed me to. Their food tasted like it was frozen and they reheated it . I was disappointed and the bill came to about $100 for 4 people. I don't know maybe I need to get into the restaurant business and serve what these guys are serving to people tasteless, frozen food and charge a pretty penny for it. What do you think?

Well that's the story what do you think?

Hello all , how are you today. Well here's the story for the week. First let me tell you that I did not win the  Mega Million for $500 million. You know I am upset about anyway. Last weeks I was out yard sailing and  got two  Apple  iPods cheap $10 for 3 of them..   The guy was nice enough and found one charger that fit all three iPods. Well we I got home  two turned on and one didn't. So I took  all three  to the Apple store to see if they could fix  one and show me how to work the other two. Here's the kicker part...

First the worker in  the apple store  told me my iPods were dinosaurs they came out in 2012 and they can not be fixed if they break . I was ok with that as long as they were working  and I can put music  on them I am good. So the nice apple employee showed me how to use the working ones and he tossed the non working one but get this...….

While the salesman was helping me a brat and her mother came in to the store and over to the worker and asked if he could fix their $700 apple phone that did not work. While the sales person was explain to the mother what the problem was her brat for a kid kept yelling at  the mother  calling her all kinds of not nice names and how  she wanted a new phone and so on. But the one the mother had in her  was brand new. After the brat stopped fussing the mother turns to her and tells her if she doesn't stop acting up she will be getting a flip phone. Really? 
 I remember as a child if we acted up in a store we got it good right there in the store. What's wrong with kids now a days.

 Well that's the story what do you think?

They Got Me!

 Hello All well here's the story so far. First Monday morning I get a call from the Chase  Fraud unit. They call to tell me that someone  tried to charge somethings on my debit card. They wanted to know if it was me. I told them no the last time I used my debit card was 3 months ago if that. The person that falsely used my card tried to charge get this a Jack in the box meal and they tried to buy some shoes for about 60 bucks. These charges were in California and I am in New York. Thank god I have fraud alert on my cards. But normally when the bills come in I check them anyway just to make sure.

Now on to the next thing I forgot and left my car doors unlocked on Monday when I came back from going out. I stayed home Tuesday but Wednesday night something told me to check my car.  Sure enough someone had been in my card and took the money out of my cup holder. I had about $25 in lose coins and dollar bills for tolls and parking meters. Mind you the car was in my driveway. I am just thankful that the person didn't smash my windows to get into my car. They can have the $25 but if they had damaged my car it would have been more money to fixed then the $25.

This week  has been a week of trying  to and taking my $$. Hopeful the rest of the week will be someone giving me money or me winning some $$. That's my story what do you think?

I Am Tired

 Hello all  here's the story for the week, I am tried of getting ripped off.  The story goes like this guess who showed  this week to do the yard? Yep my gardener he does the yard and then presents me with a bill for $130 bucks. Mind you he missed 2 weeks for the month of June and in my mind my bill should be $40 bucks.  ( $20 a week  for his services)But he goes on to tell me that he charged me $50 dollars for the seeding of the grass and $40 for the trimming of the tree and  $40 for the mowing . I was mad and asked him what did he do  again?  After I paid him I asked my partner  if he trimmed  all the backyard trees.  My partner told me he only did one. On top of that my partner had to stay outside with the gardeners to get him to do the things that he was suppose to do in the yard without me telling him. Every time I talk to the gardener it's always a new price that's more then what I had budgeted for. He's a rip off and this is my last month with him.

Also I went to the doctors yesterday and my co pay is now $50 bucks instead of the $30. Needless to say he charges me for every test done. He tells me that he will not get paid by the insurance company if  I don't get my eyes checked once a year because I am a diabetic. Let's not talk about how medications keep going up on me. I am worried that the money I have saved will not last as long with all my medical problems. I have to rethink about getting a part-time job just so that I can have money for medical expenses.  Well that's my story what do you think?

Summer Got Me Hot!!!

                                                       Hello All How Are You Today?

Well here's my story I am Hot literally Hot!!! My main air conditioner went out last week when it was 98 degrees and the humidity in New York made it feel like 102. It was hot. My main air conditioner that cools my downstairs was on it's last leg anyway but I pushed it and the air conditioner  said F**K you on the hottest day of the year I am out! So I got my fans and used them and then I ran over to P.C. Richards an electronic store to buy a new. Here's what happened. I got the air conditioner I wanted. The sales man tells me since I have a casement window I need a guy to come in and look at  my windows.  They will charge me  $25 for his services. Once the guy comes in to look at my window where the air conditioner  will be then they can deliver the air  conditioner. But get this they can not tell me how much the air conditioner will be because of the kind of windows I have . Huh????

 Now if I had regular standard windows the air conditioner would be $489. But since I have special  windows  the price is up in the air. Is that crazy or what? I said forget it and talked to my window guy. He's making me a new window and getting me an air conditioner for the window cheaper then the  $489 plus the extra $25 I would have spent.

My gardener is MIA again . I have not seen him in two weeks. Which means if I have to do my lawn this week. He's fired. What do I need a lawn guy for if he doesn't show up regularly and when he does  show up he wants a check. 

                                                    So that's my story what do you think?
