Consumer Cellular

I've had them as my cell service provider for the last two years, and I am a very happy customer. Excellent service, and good pricing.

After my bad experience with Verizon, I went directly to...

Grades too low

You shouldn't have to make more effort than the student who is supposed to be making an effort. It seems both the child and parent want you to magically fix the low grades without requiring any...

Just for fun, I used to ask my freshman HS students to list the qualities of a good teacher. Their quick responses were always along the lines of "doesn't give homework, lets students come late,...

Used cars

I don't think your mom did anything wrong. A car that old can be perfectly fine one day, and then have a problem the next day. Definitely buyer beware, and no guarantees should be expected. I...

I've said it before and I'll say it here again.....I wish you would write a book about crazy parents. You have so many great stories, I bet it would be a bestseller!

Restaurant occurrence

I'm amazed no compensation was offered. Your poor daughter! Your waitress should have told the manager what happened so they could make it right. Tea can stain clothing, so that should also have...

Retiring question

I wasn't aware of that happening at any schools where I worked, and I didn't do it myself. I don't think you need to buy anyone gifts unless you were particularly close and want to say thank you for...

Restaurant situation

That would be unacceptable to me, especially because of not being asked my preference first. I would have politely walked out and gone somewhere else to have dinner.

Open houses

Amiga, I've often wished I could stop to see an occasional open house as I walk by, but that's hard to do when I'm attached to my leashed dog who happens to be a Doberman. LOL

Very nice looking...

Favorite board games

From my childhood, Monopoly. My brother and I would play, and many of our games lasted days before a winner emerged.

As an adult, my favorite is Upwords, a three dimensional word game that is so...
