  1. Thanks Marv - after this I contacted my friend and apologized profusely. She was very gracious and said to not worry about it - her mom understood because no one at the dealership likes the finance person but the GM won't do anything about it.
  2. Yeah, I really felt put on the spot - in retrospect I wish I had just given a "perfect" survey and then sent a letter to the dealership regarding the finance person. It's really a terrible thing for the manufacturer's to do - it's like when I waitressed and got a poor tip because the kitchen screwed up an order or took their time getting it out.
  3. Wow, that sucks - and seems totally unfair! The finance person really was horrible. I work in customer service and so I am always willing to cut people a lot of slack, but when I ask for a few more seconds to look at something and am told "Wow, that form is really simple - what is it you're not understanding?" in a tone suggesting I'm a complete salamander and irritating her beyond belief, that's unacceptable. Nothing I can do?
  4. DH & I recently bought a new car. A friend mentioned that her mom worked for a dealership that sold one of the cars we were looking at, so I gave her call and we worked out a deal. DH & I still have some credit issues so my mom was co-signing but they still had to look around to find a bank to finance us. My friend's mom was fantastic - spent a good amount of time with us, did a lot of leg work, showed us all the features in the car, etc. But the finance person? What a witch. She was rude, acted like they were doing us a favor by "letting" us buy a car from them, spoke to my 80-year old mother like she was feeble-minded, and acted offended when I asked for more time to read one of the sheets that we were being asked to sign. To be honest, if the salesperson wasn't my friend's mom I would have walked out on the deal. My friend's mom did mention that this woman didn't normally work at that dealership, she was just there for training. I thought "Good thing, because if she did, I wouldn't recommend this place to ANYONE, and I'd never come back here." When Kia sent me the new-car survey to take, it had two parts - the sales experience and the finance experience. I praised my friend's mom to no end, and was very honest about our finance experience. Roughly a month after I bought the car, I received an email from my friend saying "How are you? Is everything okay with the car?" I said "Yes, we love it! Why?" She said "Oh, my mom was upset because you gave her a bad survey. I thought something was wrong." I replied that I had lavishly praised her mom, but the finance person was rude and condescending, and I thought that, if she was in training, the dealership needed to know that. She said "Yeah, well, those surveys just affect the salesperson." I apologized and asked if there was anything I could do, and she just said "No, it's too late now." And yep, not a word from her since. Also no contact from the dealership or Kia to say "Oh, so sorry for your experience!" Part of me feels like the salesperson had no business sharing this with her daughter, that her daughter should have stayed out of it, and it's not my fault that the salesperson is penalized because the finance person was an azzhat. And part of me wonders if *I* was out of line and should be apologizing. Any thoughts? Oh, yeah - long time no see. Hi everybody!
  5. He said you won't have to pay the penalty because the withdrawal is for an approved use, but he is "pretty sure" you'll still have to pay tax on it if it's not put into a new IRA within 60 days, regardless of the type of IRA. Like I said, he's going by memory so YMMV.
  6. My husband works for the IRS and he says he believes that as long as you roll it over into another IRA within 60 days you should not be taxed or pay a penalty. But since he's furloughed and isn't able to look it up, he can't be 100% sure.
  7. My brother-in-law always had issues when he went to Memorial. Is your mother able to go out to Mayo? Is St. Luke's still St. Luke's or are they St. Vincent's now? I always got good care from them. Good luck - hope your mother is doing better.
  8. Hmmm, let's see.... First of all, DawnieDawn's work decided that Creditboards was some type of phishing site and blocked it from her internet at work. Then, when she was recovering from having 13 inches of her intestines removed (no more diverticulitis - ) somebody's fool cat sent her an email featuring the top stupid Florida stories from 2012, and she laughed so hard she had a relapse. I check in from time to time. Hope you all are well!
  9. Citizens is one of the biggest rip-off banks around. They are the original "how can we manipulate these accounts to get the most in fees" bank. Didn't I just read something about VyStar having a huge identity theft ring involving its employees? What about Publix Credit Union? That's who we used when we lived in Jax and they were awesome - plus I'm sure you'd have branches where you are too.
  10. I'm so sorry. I can't even imagine how hard this must be for you.
  11. Yep, from what I have read, most hotels are now onto this scam, and require the caller to prove that they know the person in whose name the room is reserved before they will patch a call through.
  12. I spent this morning in the ER, where I was diagnosed with the flu also. Same symptoms - fever, extreme chills, body aches, and feeling like my skin hurts. The problem is - I had my flu shot, about a month ago. Apparently there are 2 strains going around out there that aren't covered by this year's vaccine. I agree with you, though, Tigz, it is "wimpy" as far as flus go. Hope you and Angel are both feeling better soon.
  13. Who are you??? :rofl: I was wondering the same thing.. because if said bf had the money to move her, he certainly had the money to give to her to stay put or move in with her. I was just glad to see that she listened to our advice about not moving in with her boyfriend of 6 days because it might cause issues with her kids.
