Your dead spouse would have a nice lawsuit that would settle out of court. Maybe sue the cops family in civil court AND the department.

Yep. If you work in a hotel, you’ll find that bed bugs are very common. In a hotel that size, there is probably about one or two rooms at all times being quarantined against them. When I worked at a hotel, if there were bed bugs, the removal people would come in and get rid of them, then the room had to be closed off for maybe two weeks. We’d have to take the adjacent rooms off the market until they could be verified BB free as well.

Excellent. I turned that into a pool sign.

I have to agree with Integrity. I would have never thought that an event like this one would end up in a trip to the doctor. Not any more than me going for a walk to the park or sitting at my computer would end up in a trip to the doctor.
On the other hand, I do believe that the insurance system is screwed up. Why should it cover every little scratch? In the past five years, I’ve gone to the doctor maybe three times. Twice for bronchitis, another time because I fell and sprained my pinky. Insurance shouldn’t have covered any of that. My kids have been the same. They go once a year for a checkup, and they’re perfectly fine the rest of the year.
But it’s important to have for the freak accidents that happen. It’s just overpriced because it covers every little thing, when it shouldn’t.

She died, so she didn’t get it back in her lifetime. Hopefully the family will be able to get that money back though.
Why should THEY get it back? Where were they when this was going on? If even ONE of them had visited her, they would have seen these same things that the UPS lady saw and the victim would have alerted them to what was going on. Too many family members neglect or ignore their elderly relatives until the relative dies and then they flock around like vultures to get "what's coming to them." I witnessed this with my husband's aunt. Her two sons rarely came to see her....not ONCE when she got cancer.....but were "johnny on the spot" there to get the money she left them in the end. One also borrowed money from my mother-in-law to "start up a small business." She never heard squat about it after she gave him the money.
AFTER L A W Y E R S .... $1.98 !! WOW!!

The family needs to press criminal charges, and the estate needs to sue the caregiver to get that large chunk of change back.

Bananas at Wal-Mart never seem to be ripe enough for me… they don’t seem to be ready to eat when I get them.
My kids will have a bunch and a half of bananas gone in a day or two though. They don’t hang around for long at my house.
Put the ones you want for the next day in a brown paper bag, they will ripen much faster.
Most people want bananas that will ripen over a few days, much to Walmart's chagrin, because daily shoppers spend 60% more than weekly shoppers.
I hope that helps :)
Wow! I feel like Monk with all these tips.

I agree. I’m currently brushing up on my Spanish and German, and learning Irish. I have a couple of books that I’m reading. There’s plenty of interesting things to do that don’t involve watching immoral television shows.
The show is not immoral. In fact, it contains many moral messages that come down on the side of good against evil.

Haven’t watched it… my husband’s friend recommended that he watch it, but although the fantasy and the kingdoms fighting against each other sound interesting to me, after he saw an episode and told me that there was a lot of gratuitous sex in it, I figured I’d pass. Maybe I’ll read the book someday instead.
People can watch what they want, but I’d rather spend my time on something more worthwhile. I do watch a couple of TV shows, but I prefer shows that don’t involve a lot of violence and sex.
I like to watch In the Middle and The Goldbergs on Wednesday nights. So far so good.
The content that was described in this article is why I never started watching "Game of Thrones". I'm not a prude, but neither do I enjoy gratuitous sexuality. That same thing ruined the "Battlestar Galactica" reboot; they would throw a sex scene in because sex! As some have pointed out, that does leave one with little to watch, and you can have sexual themes without having on-screen sex. "Law and Order: SVU" does that quite well. They have a rape every other week, but you never see it.

I met my husband when I was in college. Originally, we assumed that I’d work and he’d stay at home writing books. When I was in the Navy, we had our first baby. We decided then that he didn’t want to stay at home, and I did.
We had to take a huge pay cut, and lived at the poverty level for around 10 years. Finally, my husband finished college AND law school, and got a great job working at Focus on the Family. While he was in college, I started my business writing and designing print-on-demand products. I don’t make a lot at the moment, but he makes enough for us to be comfortable, and I can stay at home, take care of the kids, and homeschool them.
In my business, I can work as much or as little as I want, whenever I want. It works out well with the kids. I’d rather do this than anything else.
Hi Brooke Lorren,
The dirty little secret is that so many women want badly to stay home with their kids, not just for the kids but because they yearn to be the one who cares for them. I once had a fun discussion with a twenty-something woman in my extended family who did not yet have kids. She was adamant that her husband was going to do half the work, and pick up sick kids from school half the time. I told her that what she didn't realize before kids (IMHO) is that she would fight her husband tooth and nail to be the one that rushed to her sick child's side.

It depends on your annual earnings. If she sells it, she can pay the taxes from her earnings. If she gives it away, it’s a tax writeoff.
I won a trip before, and while I did have to pay taxes on it, it was minimal, because my income was pretty low at the time.

Please sign the petition for the State department to grant her a visa:
My watch wakes me up in the morning. It tells me when I have to leave if I’m going some place. I don’t look at it every three minutes… but it’s there if I need to use it.
Hey, but good for you if you don’t want to wear it. As someone who works with a computer and books… I’m not exactly worried about getting my watch caught in machinery.

I have a hard time believing that EVERY SINGLE STUDENT in the class was disrespectful. Is he trying to say that there wasn’t even one or two nerdy/scholarly types in the class that wanted to learn? I’m guessing that if the class was even decently sized, more than likely you would find one or two people in the class that was there to actually be educated.
I know that I would have been pretty upset if I had gone to a class where most of my classmates had been disrespectful, which would have made it more difficult for the teacher to teach, and then on top of that, the teacher had chosen to fail me because he had chosen to treat all of his students as a collective rather than as individuals.
I’ve never been in a class where there weren’t some people that wanted to learn. Usually, I wanted to learn, but there were always some other kids in the class that also wanted to learn. In a majority of my classes, there were even a few adults that were attending (they ALMOST ALWAYS treated their education seriously because they were paying for it and were taking time out of their work schedules to attend). I went to USC, so maybe it’s different where I went? But I don’t think so.
If there was more than one vocally disrespectful and/or cheating student in the class and the rest of the class didn't say or do anything about it, then yeah, I think the entire class deserved to fail.

With policies like these, they’re going to have more people risking their lives (and being killed in the process) so they don’t lose the money. If you think you’re going to have to pay back what you get stolen, you might be more willing to risk your life to not lose it than if the company will cover the loss.

We’re looking for a house as well. We told our Realtor “no HOAs”.

If she hadn’t been intoxicated, she should have known not to get in the car with him in the first place. I’ve never used Uber, but my husband did drive for them for a while… when the driver arrives, you have a picture of the driver before you are picked up. The fact that the picture didn’t match his face should have told her something.
That being said, they both have some problems. While she shouldn’t have gotten into the car, nor should she have accused him of rape, he should have been a professional and taken her home to where she belonged.

That is bizarre.

According to some definitions of “driving,” if you have the keys in the ignition, it’s driving.
It’s the justification that some police have used in the past for giving a drunk person a DUI while sitting in an inoperable vehicle.
