Re: Complaining about the rake and getting told on by dealers......

Q: Why are you playing there?

Re: Child Raising - Discipline issues

I'm 40. I was hit plenty, but can't name a single incident where I didn't deserve it.

I was so tickled when Saturn launched, and their model was "no haggling". They put a price tag on the car, with the rock-bottom number. I was SO hoping the industry...

Usually, ties lose in these pools. The rules will state, "Win and you advance; lose (or tie) and you're eliminated."
