Re: Flu shots

The last time I had a flu shot was 1992. The last time I had the flu was 1992. The shot literally makes me sick, or at minimum makes me more susceptible to the flu. Every year my doctor and I go around about it - you have asthma, you need the shot. No, I have asthma so I don't want the shot. It's be...

Re: November No Spend Challenge

I'll go for 20 days. Nine of those will be easy, DH will be out of the country for work and I'm a homebody when left to my own devices.

We're closing on the next house this month, that'll be a big spend day, big chunk of down payment will leave the bank.

Re: First time homeowners, our costs - we want to cut costs

I can't figure out why you have $33K in savings but still have car payments. Pay off your cars. Debt to income ratio matters big time to lenders. You didn't mention your target home price or estimated mortgage payment, did you? Look at that combined with all your other debt, look at the ratio of com...

Once the purpose (the county's assistance with college for the kids) is done, we'll downsize house while upsizing yard. We're going now from over an acre with a garden at...

Re: So tell me - is this customer service & am I wrong?

Mackie's right. The problem has to be followed to it's source and the source dealt with. Also, sometimes you get more attention if you post some negative reviews in very visible places, like Yelp and Angie's List, and on the company's own website. No hyperbole, just the facts.

Re: So tell me - is this customer service & am I wrong?

It's an appalling lack of customer service. But in my experience most pest control companies bite and are only in it to see how much more they can sell you. Have you visited the DIY pest control section of Lowe's? We haven't yet found, outside of termite "prevention" (where Sentricon actually seems ...
