I wanted to have someone who knew how to clean wood siding come out and give me an estimate of what it would cost to do it, and how long it would take them. I found three different companies on the internet that had really informative websites and requested through their sites, to have them come out and give me a bid on the work. Only two of them contacted me within twenty four hours to set up an appointment, and the third did not call back for a week. Needless to say, I had already hired one of the other two prior to the third one calling me.
Out of the two different house washing companies that did give me an estimate, I decided to go with the one that seemed to know what they were doing and explained it so that I could understand the whole process. The second company talked about how to clean wood siding, like he was a genius. He used so many big words, that it made him almost sound stupid. Using the actual scientific names of the chemicals that you use, does not make you sound smart. I thanked him for his time and told him that if I was to go with his company, I would contact them and let them know. I am sure that they have figured out they did not get the job.
I could not find my most favorite cool t shirts when I got back from camping last month. I was pretty sure that I had put them back in my duffle bag after pulling them off of the clothes line. I called my buddy who had gone with me to see if any of my crazy t shirts had somehow wound up in one of his bags.
He said that he did not have them, but maybe if somehow they were left behind, someone at the campground would have found them and turned them in to a lost and found or something like that. I could not see anyone turning in the cool t shirts that I had lost, because they would want to keep them for themselves. I know that I would keep them if I came across them and no one was around.
When I called the campground office, they confirmed that someone had come across some crazy t shirts and turned them in because they told them that they would not be caught dead in something like that. I was shocked but relieved that the finder did not have the same taste as me in cool t shirts.
I will be much more careful next time I camp, and also will check everything to make sure it is put back into my duffle where they belong. Next time, I may not be so lucky.
I bought the cutest pair of Prada shoes last month from the greatest little boutique in New York. I had discovered it while there on business. I had a meeting that was cancelled at the last minute, and it just happened to be right next door to this boutique. I did not have anything else to do, so I decided to do a little shopping.
When I entered the boutique, they had all the latest styles displayed throughout the store. There were even a few that I had never seen before, and I usually see all the new styles when I attend Fashion Week in Paris every year. I found the Prada shoes right next to a beautiful pair of Hogan shoes that I knew my niece would love for her birthday.
I was thrilled with my purchases and left the boutique excited to get back to the hotel and put them on. I always walk around with my new shoes at home, before wearing them in public, to break them in. I never want to go out in my new Prada shoes and fall or have them be uncomfortable in any way.
My niece loved the pair of Hogan shoes that I had picked out for her. I told her all about the boutique in New York and how next time I go there, she can come along too.
I started asking around at work to see if anyone else car insurance rates seem to be going up. A few of my coworkers thought that theirs had gone down and a few thought that theirs had stayed exactly the same. I do not understand how the car insurance companies work then. If you have not had any accidents, or tickets then how can they raise their rates?
My boss told me that the car insurance companies can raise their rates if they feel like it and then all of the other insurance companies can follow suit or just stay the same if they want. I am thinking then that my company has started to raise their car insurance rates and everyone else’s has decided to stay or lower. This means that I am going to have to start looking for a new company.
Since there are so many car insurance companies out there these days, you would think that most of them would try and keep your business by lowering, if not keeping your rates the same. I guess that they just do not care enough about their business to maintain their existing customers. That is okay with me; I will just shop around till I find a lower rate and then cancel my old policy.
I was looking to buy a new home and my realtor kept showing me these older homes that were in need of replacement windows. I knew that with what my budget was and the area that we were looking in, it would be difficult to find a house that had everything I wanted.
I decided on a home that needed replacement windows and a few other minor things to make it what I wanted. I put in a bid on the home but first I called a Chicago replacement windows company to have an estimate of what replacement windows would cost. I then figured the cost of the replacement windows into the bid for the house. The full asking price, minus the cost of the windows was what my realtor submitted. They did not respond for about three days but when they did, they accepted my offer.
I was so excited, I called my best friend right away and told her the good news and invited her to go out and celebrate with me that night. When I closed on the house about a month later, I had already set up a time for the Chicago replacement windows company to install the new replacement windows. They did a great job and did it in a timely fashion which made me very happy.
