Ripoff: Kellogg’s Cinnabon Bars

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

This is kind of funny… The other day, I picked up a box of Kellogg’s Cinnabon Bars. I know they aren’t good for me but they looked interesting so I thought I’d give them a try. When I opened the box, I noticed that the bars seemed to be really small compared to the size […]

I Have Major HP Computer Issues!

Friday, October 9th, 2009

I have been an HP customer for YEARS! We bought our first HP product in the Fall of 2000. I have since purchased THREE HP laptops and an HP Officejet. My first laptop from HP was a dv8000 purchased in 2006. It has been an AWESOME laptop. I love it. My other two laptops I […]

John Thain: What Was He Thinking

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

Okay, if my memory serves me correctly, John Thain was brought in to replace Stan O’Neal as Merrill Lynch’s CEO. This occured in late 2007. Thain was hired to clean up Merrill Lynch after they lost lots of money during the mortgage/credit crisis. So, what does Mr. Thain do after he becomes CEO? He decides […]

I’m Sick of “Rachel From Cardholder Services!!!!!”

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

The phone rings. I pick it up and hear the following recorded message that goes something like this (I’m going from memory): “Hello. This is Rachel from cardholder services. There are no problems currently with your credit card account but it’s important that you act fast in order to reduce your interest rates.” And then […]

I Will NEVER Buy a Price Pfister Product Again!

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

UPDATE: Please read this follow-up post. Remember me complaining about our Price Pfister kitchen faucet not even two months ago? To refresh your memory, our faucet had a problem with the diverter. The diverter is a little piece of plastic that diverts the water from the faucet to the hose or vice versa. Our diverter […]

Go Figure! Oil Drops 11.2% This Week and Gas is Down 1.5%

Friday, July 18th, 2008

I know that oil prices and gas prices don’t always move in tandem but it sure seems like gas prices follow oil up and are reluctant to follow them back down again. Take this week for instance: Oil prices were down 11.2%. Yet, this morning I noticed that my local Kroger dropped the price of […]

OT: What Does “Antibiotic-Free” Mean to You?

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

UPDATE: I just noticed that I used the term “antibiotic-free” in the post title. I just figured out that nowhere on the packaging does Tyson claim that the chicken is “antibiotic-free.” Rather, they claim it is “…raised without antiobiotics.” Yes, they are technically the same but as you well know, wording is everything. I feel […]
