Sunday Freebie

  Hello all well here's the story so far. Why did I have to call the  heating company in on a Sunday because I smelled oil coming from my basement. Mind you it was rainy and cold and Sunday. Did I forget to mention that . I had planned on relaxing on Sunday but things happen to most of the time prevent me from relaxing. I had to replace a pipe on my heating tank. Which meant I had to call the heating company to have them send a guy over on Sunday. Thank god I had  a  repairs contract for the heating system. When the repairman was finished he started  telling me that my contract did not cover the extra  pipes that he had to replace and this repair might cost me $400. I told him I don't think so. If my contract cover  10 inches of pipe and you put in 12 inches then only charge me for the extra 2 inches that you went over my  contract agreement. I know that was not going to be no $400 for 2 inches.

The repairman came back to me and told me to forget about it. It was covered under my contract. I told him  with all the repairs I have had done with this heating system I paid for it twice already. I had better luck with my  old heating system and that thing was 60 years old. Stuff  you buy today is just Crap!

                                             Well That's My Story What Do You Think?

Got It!

 Hello all well here's my story so far. I was looking for my stimulus check to come in the mail as a paper check. But the government decided this time to send  the stimulus check  direct deposit. Didn't see that one coming. Because normally I would get a debit card with the amount on it, Or a paper check. Either way as long as I got it. Between me and my partner we got $2800. Now what to do with it ?

 Pay the bills with some of it  because I did my taxes last week and uncle Sam is not a nice person. I  will owe  him some money. I will buy my stray cats the good cat food we are talking $7 a bag and not the $3 a bag food. Giving them a treat.  I will be saving about $200 to go to Atlantic city with for vacation. I need a get away I am tired and need some excitement. With getting free hotel rooms. taking my own food to eat  and gambling on the cheap $200 should do it for a 2 day stay. Beside I go to put my feet in the water since Cruising is out this year.

                                            That's about it for me so what do you think?

Well Darn!!

 Hello all well this is the face I made yesterday when my accountant told me how much I owe in taxes. Yes I was shocked and surprised. I should not have been since I was getting extra money from the government. Good old government wanted half back that they paid me. You know they give with one hand and take with two. Thank goodness I saved all the money that was given to me just in case this happened and it did. I owe for State and Federal about $6,000. Which I am so use to getting money back I also most lost it. What happens if I don't have the money to pay them. Well I guess they put me on a payment plan. Thank god I have the money but still.

 I am thinking of selling my rental because right now I do not trust renting it out. The tenants I have been hearing about have been taking advantage of the landlords. Since the government is telling tenants that they do not have to pay rent until Sept. Even if the tenants is getting a stimulus check they are still not paying their rent. They are using it for other bills. This has been  going on for what about a year now. With tenants that can't or won't pay their rent because of the  virus. I can't afford to pay for myself and someone else. It's better just to sell the place and take the money and run or better yet invest it.

                                                       So that's my story what do you think?

Thanks Uncle

  Well here's the story for the week. Thanks Uncle Biden for approving the stimulus package that  would  put $2400 in me and my partner's pocket. Also the extension for other things that's in the stimulus package it's greatly needed and apricated  thank you. Now if you can just get to the Property taxes and give us some needed updated credit that would be great. So for  going on this week I am filing my taxes on Monday and I hope that I will be getting some money back. Not likely but a girl can dream right. Yes you can call me greedy when it comes to money. I like to have it in my bank account it makes me feel safe.

Got the bill from my oil company who also fixes my heating system. The guy came and adjusted my hot water system. He told us what to do in the future. On the bill it stated that one of the charges was his advice on what to do for the future which was a charge of $200. So now the heating company is charging you for advice. And if I did not have a contract with them the advice that I was given would have cost me  $300. All I can say is Really? I am so tired of being ripped off by these repair companies who try to make up for loss revenue by over charging you or making up charges for you to pay. It's Crazy!

                                                       That's My Story What Do You Think?

Com On Now!

  Hello all well here's the story for the week. where do I start. Ok so I got my Con Edison Bill adjusted for my rental home.( My Con Edison serves my electricity and gas for my rental) Come to find out they owe me $985 for the electricity alone. I called Con Edison about the credit and they told me that my gas bill  still  had to be adjusted and I need to wait and see what happens. So the Next Con Edison bill for the rental home comes in for February. Again I see the electric for the house and not the gas. I owe $62 for electric and still have over a $900 credit. I will be calling them this week to say give me my money. I will deal with the gas bill when it comes. It's will probably be a credit as well. Since the rental house now sits empty because of Covid-19

 I was shocked . I got my medical bill from some test that I took a couple of months ago. That bill was $52,000. I said D**N!!. Thank god for insurance because they paid  for the bill  with all the discounts the bill came out to $25,845.00 and that was to much. I was thinking that if I did not have insurance  then  the hospital would have to  put me on some kind of  payment plan.  I would  call them to see what kind of discounts they offer. This kind  of bill will wipe out a person's saving if they have any in a minute.

                                                   That's my Story what do you think?

New Friend

  Hello all well here's the story so far. I have a new friend. I feed the  stray cats in my backyard along with the squirrels and the birds. Anyway the cats leave food over because they are spoiled. Me and my neighbor feed them. So with the left over food from the cats the raccoons in the neighborhood finish it. I saw a raccoon walking my backyard looking for the food yesterday morning. I was shocked because I thought they only come out at night. Oh well at  somebody is not letting my hard earned money go to waste on cat food.


Got my first shot for the virus  on Monday. The whole thing was ran by FEMA which consisted of the military processing you in, giving you the shot. Thank god it was quick and easy. I will say that all of the military personnel that we talked to was nice and polite.  Now back for the second vaccination shot in 2 weeks.

                                               So that's my story for the week what do you think?
