On Citywide Blight Due to Shady Donation Boxes

@Allison Did I remember correctly that you're in Chicago? Are you near either of the Brown Elephant locations? That's where I donate everything. Or there are a few hospitals that run thrift stores. I've shopped at Village Discount, but never donated. They may be a decent alternative?

On You Ask Me, 1 Thing Is Winning

@BrianDau I would find out how long it was dormant and see if they have been charging a dormancy fee. Often we'll reverse any if the customer chooses to keep it open. ALSO! See if you can send a letter of direction instead of having to go in. We prefer people to come in because dormant accounts are ripe for fraud, but a clear letter should be enough.

On You Ask Me, 1 Thing Is Winning

@Madeline Shoes I always thought that too, but then in my new management role my HR department called me about some recent exit interviews they conducted and suggested some improvements we could implement in our branch. So there's a possibility!

On You Ask Me, 1 Thing Is Winning

@mayonegg I am the roommate that pays the gas bill and ours has been similar for the last 3 months. I've tried figuring it out and Peoples Gas is no help because I can get NO ONE on the phone. They also just hiked the rate and tacked on a $100 "delivery fee" for March. Hope your roommate has better luck.

@andnowlights Somehow they think I'm still a student and they only raised that price from $39 to $49 according to an email I received this morning.

On Unlimited Drinks at Brunch Are Illegal, Endangered

@Allison might you be talking about Deleece on Clark? Southport Irving Cafe (SIP) has a nice alternative.
