Week 32

This week was much any other week, although it ended terribly. As for the majority of the week, it has been much like most weeks. I paid bills, and got the things I needed. As for the end though, my tablet’s screen broke. This was due to a drop after my ankles gave way. I invoked my insurance with Assurance Solutions, and it was a complete rip-off. They were insisted on sending me the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 with the claim that it was a comparable model. It was far from a comparable model, and the Tab is inferior in every way. I managed to work out a somewhat reasonable solution with T-Mobile in replacing my tablet, but this is likely a one time thing which means I can’t trust the insurance provider to do the right thing in the future.

So, what is going on, and why do I feel Pay Pal’s Policy should state this? Well, let’s get to the whole story, shall we?

At one time, I had a Pay Pal Donate button on all of my web sites. People have used this once in a while, and I am sure because they found the material I write useful (such as this post). Did I expect anything, no. Were the donations to the degree where it made my life better – not really. And most of the time, it would not even cover the monthly hosting fee. However, I do not have a blog to profit off of. If so, I should have closed business a while ago. Nonetheless, I had a couple of donations (literally).
