Leasing works really well for some people. Most of the leases aren't to those people.

I leased once. I wasn't sure if I wanted another truck and found a really good deal on a lease. I got a $36k truck for $160 a month for two years. After the two years, I had a much better idea of what I wanted and didn't want in a truck and ended up buying the perfect truck and kept it for 10 years with no complaints. Best test drive I ever went on. :thumbup:

My computer chair just downgraded from "this thing has seen better days, and I should consider replacing it" to "this thing is no longer safe to sit in, I had better grab one of my folding chairs." That's annoying.

I go through computer peripherals so fast. When all my school, work, and play, take place on the exact same device, I'm the mouse and key-board equivalent of a long-haul commuter that puts like 70,000 miles on their car every year.

Watching the tracking update for your package and it's sitting at the hub right down the road from you but won't be out for delivery until tomorrow evening. :(

I've been having intermittent internet disconnection issues for the past few days. Today, I found a means of monitoring my connection and have discovered something interesting. It disconnects for five seconds once every hour, on the hour.

ISP, you got some splainin to do.

I can totally relate to it. Sometimes, it gets frustrating to see the tracking updates but the package not actually arriving.

If you mash f5 on the tracking page enough times it send the driver a notification to drive faster.
