    So she went from wanting to pick him up today, to wanting a trial? Hmmm....
    How low is "very low-end"?

    So was full training supposed to be 3 rides/lessons per week, or 6 (so 3 of both)?

    It's crappy that you agreed to 3 lessons/week, but if after week 1, and no 3 lessons, why not say something?

    That worries me. I get that it can be cheaper to have horses at home, but probably not as cheap as they think it will be.
    They've already broken the terms of your contract. Be prepared for them to...

    Both of mine will lick their feed tub/bucket/my hand clean if there's flax on it- seed or ground. They're not on it daily, but more of a healthy treat.

    Yes, he mentioned people were yelling to him about time, and he knew he would win even with a rail down at the final fence as long as he made the time. I doubt he meant to crash (who would?!) but he...

    To be fair, they have held the WC finals in Vegas before, without these same issues (course design, not ring size- I doubt they made it smaller!!). Looks like it was more of a design issue than a...

    Never gotten a discount that way where just owning/leasing led to cheaper lessons.
    Did board at one place a short while where lessons were $60, but you could buy a board package that meant the...

    I got one in 6th grade, 3 days after 9/11. I was at school in NY and all landlines were down/busy- couldn't reach my Dad (he didn't have one either). Never used it though, as none of my friends had...

    If the facility could not handle the trailers (I guess the steward would make this call???)the show shouldn't count. If it was outside riders/trainers speculating the parking was bad, the show should...

    So they were the last 2 people on the plane? On an airline without reserved seats? What did you expect?

    Legroom is a big one.

    I like aisles, and won't switch to a middle or window- I don't like them for various reasons.

    Being close to the front of the plane is big for me for two reasons-...

    I was pre-approved in Jan/Feb? of 2013, closed in May 2013. And I had a horrible Real Estate agent, who didn't do anything- include show up for closing!

    I'm confused by the responses myself. I got approved (didn't need to provide any paper work, just my SSN and address), looked at houses, picked one and closed. I did have to explain where my 20%...

    Wait, so does this mean you need to water your rocks, in addition to your plants? Typically people put in rock to cut down on water! :lol: Glad they changed color though!

    I don't switch.
    I fly enough that I've gotten seniority to get the 'extra legroom' seats for free on domestic flights. You can buy these seats for anywhere from $20-$50 depending on the length of...

    I went to two Targets- one I was there at 8am and got a handful of things I'd seen in the lookbook. But everything was gone by the time I checked out at 8:12. Drove to another Target and everything...

    I was on a flight where there was a solider in cargo and his family on the plane. They let us know when we landed, and everyone sat until the family disembarked, many who were sitting in front of...

    Thanks!
    Yes, I finally got someone on the phone, and they confirmed that my close date is the 21st, so if I buy something April 22nd, I actually don;t need to pay it until June 17th- which is crazy...

    Ah my sarcasm didn't come through!
    I've been told that people who never pay interest on CC's are not well liked by CC companies, as they never make 'extra' money off of them, so I was just saying...

    Ah ok! This makes more sense!!!
    I thought I was paying too early. As I don't get statements, I wasn't sure when everything needed to be paid, looks like I've just been paying too soon.

    Thanks, but that offer on my first card, ended about a year ago (it was only good for 1 year). And the minimum on my new card I believe is $35, right away.

    Sorry for the confusion- I don't get a statement. I just get a reminder once a month to pay my bill.

    For example- today the 'Amount Due' on my account is $0.00. I last paid on March 17th. Since...
