    Having a blow-up with my live-in helper. :eek:

    She's pissed, I'm pissed, even my gardener and his wife are pissed. (Long story. Don't ask.)

    Hope you manage to smooth things over... it's a bitch to have to live with someone you are angry with.

    Okay so about two years ago a uncle passed away.
    My wife and I were assigned the task of helping the aunt sort through items to be donated or destroyed. I got task with going through boxes in his office. In one box I found close to 20 cell phones, mostly flip and brick phones.
    We tried and fail to get a single one power on. They end up becoming play phones for the kids, over time one by one they have disappeared.
    So the other day I was cleaning and came across two of them. Since my daughter has multiple tablets and a cellphone plus her mom's phone , I decided it was time to get rid of the old ones.
    So I go to Walmart where they have one those phone recycle things. I take a iPhone 4 SE and a kryrocea brick phone:rolleyes: I am thinking perhaps maybe the iPhone will fetch $10_$20
    The other maybe $3 in reality I am just looking to recycle. The kryrocea had a value of $0:D but the iPhone wouldn't even registered:(

    I recycle the kryrocea and trashed the iPhone can't believe the kryrocea had no cash value:thinking:

    Is there a way how to keep your photos, from your device and videos, without having them erased from the cloud? Mine keep on doing this for a while now..

    I also work night shift and when I have a second job, may add swing shift to the grind. Makes for a mixed up sleep wake cycle.

    Last year my favorite grocery store close down:mad::(. We had been going to this store for over ten years. A local chain store took over the location. I decided to go visit the replacement store, I was only in the store for five minutes and I wanted to burn the place to the ground:maddroid:

    I actually sworn off shopping in new places, even though they could of have something I really need. Weird huh, even Good will too.

    Just been watching George Clark's old house new home. Basically about renovating old houses to become modern living spaces.

    This couple had a budget of £60,000 for the reno, by the time they had finished it cost a whopping £160,000!!!! What the holy hell, how do you go £100,000 over budget and sit there and laugh with happiness?? I'd never sleep again, mortgage plus £160k on top.... :oops::oops::oops::oops:

    If there was a faint emoji I'd use it right now. :D

    How come total strangers with their kids, spend an aweful ammount of time talking about them?
    Seriously how about just do not talk with their kids though, and just lie to another face?
    Query about movies and music for instance, do not be such another brick in the wall.
