i'm not even sure how you get there...


edit:

There is no expiration date required on either SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener Granulated or Packet products. These products are very stable and can remain in your home for years without losing sweetness. However, they should be stored in a cool dry place to avoid moisture*.

I didn't realize that tortillas would have to be sweetened at all. - sugar or fake sugar.  I guess the wheat ones are not as sweet as the corn ones.  And yes, that Splenda stuff tastes disgusting.

agreed

he could have just blown this off

but maybe he found out who you were and didn't want to chance it   {#Wink}

That'll do. Still a letdown that it happened at all. I agree with the shenanigans but everyone's got cameras these days, so why risk a criminal complaint? 

 
In not-pissed-off-level-but-still-annoying-level related news, my video doorbell was confused by all of the heavy wind and snow and did NOT capture the incident.

That is pretty stunning but it appears to be a somewhat positive turn.

 
Definitely. I didn't get a chance to really inspect the damage to my daughter's truck this morning as it was still dark when she left for school, but after seeing the truck that hit it (full size Dodge with rear bumper nearly torn off from the impact) , I think she actually got lucky there wasn't a lot more damage.

The email marketing "genius" who has somehow convinced vendors across the planet that sending more than one email per day is a "great" marketing strategy.  Big hint: If I didn't want to buy anything from you at 10 o'clock in the morning, I don't want to buy anything from you by 11.  Or noon.  Or at any of the other multiple times per day you're emailing me.  If you want to email me once a day, I'll deal with that, but more than that and I'm unsubscribing from your GD list and will endeavour to never buy anything from you ever again because, frankly, you're too stupid to be in business.

Yeah, that happened to P's Mazda one evening when we stopped to vote. Probably some asshat without insurance.

They contacted R_D today to see where we were... why hadn't we checked in yet??

SO now, our annual escape to the woods, that we relish so, and look forward to every year like nothing else all year long, is canceled.
 
Yeah, but you can use the rest of what you'd have spent and it'll go further at home!
