Didn't get the West Village apartment. Apparently the building management company concealed from my realtor that there was another applicant, and then basically stonewalled her when she asked for more info about why the other applicant was selected over me. My realtor's take was that the building management already had a tenant lined up and just played us to get an extra application fee. In my realtor's words, "Welcome to the world of New York real estate."

She's going to present me with some new listings later this afternoon, and then we'll go from there. Oh well.
Bummer. How much was the application fee?

Don't feel too bad though, this kind of thing can happen even in far less competitive markets. When I was looking for the house I own (with the mortgage company) now I was looking in a specific neighborhood. I had only really started looking, hadn't even signed on with a realtor yet. Found a listing pretty much right where I wanted to be. Called the listing agent, made an appointment for two days later to see the place. Two hours before the appointment she called and said an offer had been accepted on the house. Then a few weeks later the house literally next door was listed, I went to see it on the first day of the listing. The next day I did the paper work to make an offer, only to find out a few hours later there was another offer. At my realtor's suggestion I upped my offer by $1,500. It was a tense six hours before my agent called and said they had accepted my offer. And all this is in a town of a little over 100k.

There's no such thing as 'realtor on your side' because he/she profits by a commission on the higher sale price. Wouldn't be surprised if 'something else, off record' was going on there.

Just ask the church member if he/she as ever had to shun or banish another person because the person didn't attend church, questioned the church's beliefs, or didn't act in full accordance with doctrine. Also ask if the leadership ordered it done. You might not get an honest answer, but that person will know the truth, and it should give him/her pause because that's a clear indication of cult-like activity.

Yeah, he's a dick. He's a dick to everybody. Get over it. And if you can't, put him on ignore. Not like he gives a shit.

But aren't you then rewarding that behavior through inaction?

No, you combat trolls through inaction. You empower them by getting worked up and reacting.

For once I don't agree. Doing that, in that way, sounds like you don't want to risk touching something because you don't want to deal with the chaos in the aftermath. There has to be a better way. You never fix a problem by ignoring it and hope it goes away.

Tends to go from one extreme to another. Hence, as we see now via this election and its result.

Nice, girlfriend ordered this laptop and instead of 128GB SSD/12GB RAM they somehow shipped her a 512GB/32GB version. I made sure we selected the one direct from MSI, but it looks like we received an SKU from Computer Upgrade King that's supposed to cost $300 more. Sort of makes up for her old laptop being stolen.

My GF now has a laptop stronger than my desktop x_x

Awesome, you win. Rest easy knowing the law is on your side.

Q. Am I obligated to return or pay for merchandise I never ordered?
A. No. If you receive merchandise that you didnít order, you have a legal right to keep it as a free gift.

Q. Must I notify the seller if I keep unordered merchandise without paying for it?
A. You have no legal obligation to notify the seller.

My translation of the above: You are under no legal obligation to be a decent human being. You are free to be a selfish prick. Congratulations, the law is on your side!

Write to them, letting them know of their mistake. If they respond no worries, at least you'll have it in writing. Bear in mind, I'm an overly honest person, often to my own detriment, so I'm sure someone else will give a different opinion.

Here's an article on the topic.

Ever ask yourself, "Why is there an extra charge, fee, or tax for a product or service?"

Well, here's the definitive answer: because they can

It's almost always that simple.

I've always been of two minds about renos before selling a home. Seeing as I have the skills to reno most everything myself I've always preferred something cheaper and dumpier that I just gut and rebuild myself - for the most part. The major problem with renos and flipped homes - beyond shoddy workmanship - is personal taste. So you may end up spending a lot of money on cosmetics that you like but others don't. Better off to just clean things up, a bit of patching and paint here and there and let the new owners reno it to suit their tastes.



Homes around here seem to be going up in price around $100k every 1-1.5 years, which is including the fixer uppers. Don't ask me why. I'm baffled.

When I was a kid I had a surgery called "naso-antral windows". Kept me out school for months. It was a painful recovery process.
Todays ENT specialists look at that procedure and shudder at the butchery of it, much like tomorrow's doctors will look at todays medicine and shake their heads.

What games are you guys playing these days? i'm starting to get bored of Rimworld after 200+ hours. Looking for something new.

Going through my steam list of 190 games and I still have 90 or so unplayed. Debating doing Bulletstorm/The two newer wolfensteins.

Ahhh finally got my nose stents out today!

What kind of surgery did you have?

Septoplasty/Inferior Turbinate Reduction for a deviated nasal septum. They're actually really common in people, just to varying degrees. Mine was bad enough that I was generally always congested - chronic sinusitis - on one side or the other on a regular basis. It wasn't crippling or dangerous but it was irritating. It deffo interferes with your sleep causing snoring and mild sleep apnea because you're mouth breathing with it. Plus you're dehydrating so you're constantly waking up and drinking water, than waking up to piss out that water. Not really a problem as a young man but post 45 it starts to take its toll. Still surgery is always better when done young, I really should have done this 20 or 30 years ago. I just hope it was worth it.

Well it's "Family Day" in Canada. How arbitrary is that? Whatever works. Everyone just wants a day off in Feb.

Election day in the USA needs to be a holiday.

Or buy a stamp and mail it in.
