In all fairness I'm scared to use the cruise control in my Highlander or I might fall asleep of boredom. Would be cool to drive something with more character. But I would plan to retorque any wheels, especially those refinished. And powdercoating

You're dealing with monopolies. They can do pretty much what they want. My neighbor was away on a business trip. Just by chance I saw the utility company at his house. Yep they were cutting him off. He had forgot to pay his bill before he flew to Ja

...I see it from the other side...you didn't pay on time, the end. My utility company is a small company, and we have issues with being the last lines on a VERY long road. If I call at 2 am, they would be out in under an hour. And while they would

Pretty sure as a utility they can't just shut down the power on the basis of one month late. Not when it takes a year to evict a tenant or somesuch. Can you get another credit card and use that strictly for online purchases? I've been tempted to g

Wait, didn't you even get a notice saying that you were late and the power was going to be shut off? Something doesn't sound right. Companies don't care about anything anymore. It's all how much you can get from your customer. Now they have us pa
