More Damage or Less Damage, which is the better deal?

My last two car purchases were theft recovery cars from an insurance company.  I ended up paying more than I would pay for a damaged car that needed body work, but because it needed less work.  Installing seats and a radio seemed like a better deal since you did not have to pay a body shop guy to pull and paint your car.  I ended up paying more money for these cars, but find that I am not getting the return on investment I thought I would.  Customers don't really see the value in having to…

What to Do When Your AC Stops Working

(This was written last night).

As I write this blog post, our townhome currently has no AC in the upstairs. The downstairs is perfect, wonderful in fact. But upstairs, horrible!

You see, my wife and I like it cold, and I mean ice cold when we sleep. But hot air rises, and we definitely have our bedroom where the hot air rises. So tonight, it doesn't sound like there will be very much sleeping in comfort, or will there be? How do we solve this since nether of us are…

My customer service is better than yours

You know the old joke. When asked what sets their business apart from the competition, 99% of small business owners say, “Our customer service.” Then everyone around them laughs because, well, everyone thinks they provide good customer service.
