  1. I zeroed my debt in early April. Had nothing to do with Covid though. It was already planned but slightly delayed due to a job change. I’ve been one of the hoarders since Covid hit.
  2. How about the stupid decision making of allotting 150 tests to one testing center in an area like NOLA? I mean really. What did they expect? That would last a week? It’s not like they actually tested that many people in 2 minutes either. That’s just a guess of how many were in line waiting when the center opened up. Hell, my little itty bitty area with a population of around 600 or so could burn through 150 tests in a day if they put up just one notice at the feed store.
  3. Discover is like any other card. They all have their uses depending on the wallet or sock drawer.
  4. I’ll have to see if I can find this fool for the laughs.
  5. More clickbait. Capacity was 150 tests.
  6. Never heard of this and not how it works in my state. Filing is up to the former employee. As an aside, I successfully fought a claim against my employer right after the $600 weekly welfare took effect. Former employee was not happy I busted their attempted scam.
  7. What no one whining about this extra $600 UI welfare realizes is that this IS coming out of our pockets later. In my state, companies pay UI based on rates determined by claims filed. One claim for even a week or two can jack rates for years. Seen it happen first hand where a total $1500 in UI benefits paid over an 8 month period to one person caused the rate to go from 1% to 6.5% for THREE YEARS. Those numbers are calculated on gross payroll for all employees. It cost far, far more than $1500 for just that one claim. Now any company already paying the max rate won’t see a change unless they raise them max allowed. I expect that to happen. Big corporations won’t be affected much and can absorb the cost more easily. But all the small businesses out there that are facing an upcoming bombshell of higher UI rates don’t have that ability and won’t have it if they’re already struggling now. The cost for all those welfare checks will be getting passed on to the companies who will in turn be passing the cost onto consumers.
  8. I really didn’t want to know what kind of sexual fantasy involved a broom.
  9. Sounds like a day with my cousin.
  10. Leafs on trees. We’re all going to pay for it and there’s no bottom to that pit.
  11. Tonight was simple. Two fish I caught early this evening. Scaled, cleaned, brushed with butter, rolled in a little seasoned flour and pan fried. Brewed a little mint tea.
  12. If the opportunity ever arose, I’d happily whip one up for you to your temperature preference. However, I flat refuse to turn such a nice bit of food into TAD’s shoe leather.
  13. Joke and idiot is putting it mildly. So much I could say. I won’t.
  14. AFAIK that’s not possible. Processors have to take all Visa/MC, just as merchants do. Processors simply handle the transaction as a middleman for the network. I’ve never heard of any specifically catering to high volume, low transaction amount merchants. The only thing processors care about is the merchant’s gross sales CC volume and that’s just to set a pricing structure. They know nothing about a merchant’s margins. It may be possible to set up some kind of auto decline if the transaction amount is below a certain minimum. I know some convenience stores require a $5 or so minimum to use a credit/debit card. Not sure if that’s store policy or not. Below a certain point, I do know the merchant loses money due to swipe fees. Individual issuers such as BOA, Chase, Wells Fargo have specific encoding. I don’t think there’s an encoding for rewards vs non rewards cards.
  15. Learned on a Willys Jeep. First driver was a ‘74 VW Bug. First owned was a ‘73 Dodge Dart. I didn’t count the tractors 🥰
