Oh dude, I have so many medical bill horror stories. I had a fun period in my life where I broke my leg badly enough to require surgery (and 5 days in the hospital) and then more surgery after that and then I broke it again with more surgery and another overnight stay and then more surgery. One of the bills that couldn't be explained was a 7000 dollar bill from the anesthesiologist. (Side bar: insurance companies and anesthesiologists screw you over all the time - seriously their billing is totally bizarre). Anyway I paid it because I had the money and was trying to save up to buy a house so I didn't want my credit f'ed over. About 9 months later I got another letter from the anesthesiologist. It took me about 3 weeks to open it and and looking at it made me want to barf. When I finally opened the thing? It was a letter saying "Sorry we messed up your bill, here's 6500 dollars back" With a check. WTF?
@gyip I don't like the metal one. It gets clogged up easily (I know I could change to a different grind, but that's the one I like for the beans) and is a pain in the rear to clean and then the coffee drips a million times slower and anything that makes coffee slower doesn't work for me.
That's how I make coffee every morning. The clean up is super easy and there's only a small filter to toss out each day.
I can't think of a price where I would consider avocados too expensive, but this does inspire me to get my own avocado tree.
I get free haircuts from a friend who totally "gets" my hair (which is nice since it's a curly nightmare) AND teaches at a beauty school.I'm the curly hair lesson.
@Meaghano Or even acted like you were gonna do that. Or the super pro move: take the bus to the bus depot and rent a car (or even get a cab there) for way way cheap. If you get the white commuter vans it's between 10-15 bucks a person from the bus station to the ruins at Tulum, but it stops at every resort on the main road.
Oh jeeze, I wish you would have posted here before you went. I could write a dissertation on doing things on the cheap in that part of Mexico. Getting in late at night does make things more difficult, but walking away when you hear the first price is your best move.
This shit drives me CRAZY. My mother (a yoga teacher) is 100% on that bandwagon. She's always calling me and telling me to take some crazy supplement or how an herb is going to change my life. When I'm not excited it means I'm close minded. I just stay outta whole foods.
Booze that gets delivered to your house always pisses me off because the FedEx/UPS dudes who deliver to my house are like the SS of carding. I'm 32 and they refuse to give me booze (wine club membership stuff) with out seeing my ID. In my own house that I live in. For some reason that really bugs.
