Off-Topic / Tripping Over a Long Weekend
« on: June 05, 2019, 08:41:10 am »Message ID: 1278621
Scenario: You have a four day weekend (not even a three, but a four) and money is no object.  Would you get in a car, use a bus, ride a train, or catch an airplane, and where would you go?
Me, I would catch an airplane and probably go somewhere like Miami or the Keys.  Sounds great right now!

Off-Topic / Caring For Your Teeth
« on: June 05, 2019, 08:31:11 am »Message ID: 1278618
Do you brush at least twice per day, floss, and regularly go to your dentist for check-ups?  I am asking because I am angry that dentistry is not considered as part of our healthcare insurance as they are so important to our overall health.  Teeth and gums can become unhealthy, and once they are, it is so expensive to treat them!

Off-Topic / What Do You Hoard More than Anything Else?
« on: June 04, 2019, 09:01:33 am »Message ID: 1278443
I have a very difficult time getting rid of clothing.  I can't even tell you why.  However, when I am looking through my closet and drawers, I will grab something to put in the donate pile and I will think that maybe I can wear it if I lose a bit of weight or that it will come back in style.  About 6 years ago I actually purged quite a few clothes but now I am back to where I need to again.

Off-Topic / Ladies and Handbags
« on: June 04, 2019, 08:53:02 am »Message ID: 1278440
I have several acquaintances who spend a lot on purses.  They do one of two things.  They either are constantly buying "budget" handbags because they can't turn down a bargain and/or need to add to their collection or they spend several hundred dollars on a handbag.  I can't do either.  I buy purses that are under $100, put my stuff in it, and use it until I'm tired of it or it's starting to wear out.  I hate to change handbags after i get used to it and where everything is. Ladies: which type of handbag user are you?

Off-Topic / Worst Employability Trait
« on: June 02, 2019, 09:45:04 am »Message ID: 1278025
I am now retired and have not been in the job market for about 5 years.  Funny thing, I worked in the field of Workforce Development so I can name all kinds of things that are problems.  However, I recently hired a skilled handyman to do a number of things around my home.  He is NEVER on time.  I mean never!  He is nice, he is skilled, he is detailed.  But he is also a little slow and "laid back."  Now his transportation has broken down and he has to rely on other people.  He never seems to tell them what time he needs to be here.  I have told him to fix it by telling them 30 minutes early but I don't think he has.  He has no regular, full-time job and now I know why!

Support / Review Robin Surveys
« on: June 01, 2019, 06:51:20 am »Message ID: 1277826
I have repeatedly not been provided credit for completed surveys with Review Robin lately.  Sometimes I am not even receiving the cent DQ!  I was just in the midst of one that started over on a completed section when the progression graph showed the survey was almost finished.  This is getting to be an issue and I will soon not bother with Review Robin if this keeps happening.  Anybody else having any issues with Review Robin?

Off-Topic / Concert Tickets
« on: May 05, 2019, 09:58:32 am »Message ID: 1274025
How much would you pay for concert tickets to see one of your favorite singers or bands.  My daughter just told me about tickets to see someone who will be in the area this summer but they are $150. I told her. "No way! Let me know if you see some for under $100 with seats where we can see and hear." I guess I won't be going. There is no one who I want to see that much.

Off-Topic / Kitchen or Bathroom?
« on: May 05, 2019, 09:42:26 am »Message ID: 1274023
If both rooms could be considered equally messy and dirty, which one would you rather clean? I would pick the kitchen as I simply dislike cleaning bathrooms.  There is no particular reason.  I guess it's just a personal preference. I can spread out cleaning the bathroom over almost a whole day if I am not in the mood, and it is particularly true now that I'm retired. 

Off-Topic / House Furniture
« on: May 05, 2019, 06:39:59 am »Message ID: 1273994
If you had to pick one piece of furniture you would most like to replace in your house, what is it and why?  For me, it would be my bedroom furniture.  If I could, I would sell it and pick pieces that are not nearly as heavy and cumbersome.  I wouldn't have to replace it because it is worn and not nice.  It is actually about 15 years old but you would never know it.  It is in excellent condition. But there is no way I can move any of it myself, and I would need 2, maybe 3, moving men to budge it. I would also never get the money out of it that it is worth so I'm not about to sell it.

Off-Topic / Mattresses and Pillows
« on: May 05, 2019, 06:29:23 am »Message ID: 1273993
So how do you prefer the density of your mattress and pillow?  I like a somewhat soft, plush mattress but it can't be so soft that there is really no support.  However, firm or very firm mattresses are very uncomfortable for me and feel like sleeping on a plywood board. I like pillows that say they are good for combination sleepers, or on my back and side also.  I like it also to be plush but not completely collapse when I lay on it. I think I am going to try pillows that says they stay cool the next time I buy some.

Support / Decision
« on: May 04, 2019, 09:14:37 am »Message ID: 1273835
I have decided that between the amount of surveys I qualify for, surveys I complete and don't credit, and surveys that decide they are going to take back the credit (not many, but 2 within the last 5-6 months), I am no longer going to try to cash out each month.  I have worked on Fusion for close to 4 years, I believe, and have cashed out every month up until now but am getting tired of the daily grind on my 3 sites. My goal is going to be cashing out every other month for at least $40, and if I happen to get lucky, I will more often.

Off-Topic / How Much Do You Pay for a Haircut?
« on: May 03, 2019, 01:50:33 pm »Message ID: 1273691
I pay between $25-$30 to get a haircut.  I refuse to pay more since there is always a tip expected.  I live in mid-Michigan, and I am telling you this as I know where you live dictates the going price of things.  I usually tip $3.00.  What do you tip for your haircut?

Off-Topic / Hairdresser or Doctor?
« on: May 03, 2019, 01:39:10 pm »Message ID: 1273687
This post is probably oriented toward women more than men, but men can surely respond. The question is whether you would rather find a new doctor or a new hairdresser?  Which would be the bigger stressor?
Myself, I have trouble changing hairdressers and have done this the most often.  I have been with my doctor a little over 10 years.  Having medical background, I guess I would just feel comfortable interviewing doctors. However, finding a competent hairdresser at a price that is not ridiculous is no easy matter.  Right now I am settling in with a new hairdresser I have seen about 4 times but I am still not sure as her prices are a bit high. Her skills seem fine so we'll see...

Off-Topic / Brand Loyalty
« on: May 03, 2019, 01:28:16 pm »Message ID: 1273682
I thought I would ask whether anybody on here is loyal to a particular brand for any service or item?  I have taken several surveys lately which was about this and it piqued my curiosity.
Me?  I am only loyal as long as the quality and price seem to intersect.  If the quality falls off, I will look for another brand. If it's something I really want or like, I will pay a little more for quality.  When I think in terms of years, I can't think of any brand I have stayed with to the exclusion of others.

Off-Topic / Ladies: Curl or Straighten?
« on: May 03, 2019, 01:15:15 pm »Message ID: 1273678
So ladies, how do you like to wear your hair? Do you straighten or curl it with an iron?  I like to curl mine but I don't always take the time to do the best job now that I'm retired. I have to be careful when I try to use a straightening iron because I can easily leave "dents" in my hair.  My daughter can use a blow dryer and a brush and make her hair look pretty good. Then she finishes her hair by using a straightening iron for several minutes. I am not that good at using the brush and dryer at the same time.  I feel clumsy when I attempt it!
