Just in case someone was unaware, “60 Minutes” had a special show about Buffett some years ago:
I have been a customer since the day that I bought the car. For the first renewal, I did indeed tell them that it was too expensive for the renewal price, and they gave me a price about 1/3 of the full cost. Since that time, I’ve always told them that I will stay with Sirius XM as long as my rate does not increase. So far, my rate has been the same for 8 years. My renewal time is coming up soon, and I now think that I will try for an even better rate. Thanks for the tips.
Great idea – thanks.
Insults. Ha. Not an effective way to begin a statement of opinion, providing that you actually want to be persuasive.
I disagree. I have been told by many that I have a dry sense of humor, and I will take them at their word. Even if it turns out that my wit is not dry, I can still recognize someone who is not attempting to start a true discussion. Instead, she wants to start a mild argument. Pity.
$5 dollars??!! Congratulations!
And I thought that I was getting a good deal. How did you convince them to offer that price?
Thanks to runaway inflation, a monthly payment the size of a mortgage payment.
I rarely comment about the nature of posters, but I will this time.
Please don’t give howtheduck any more dopamine hits. He’s trolling and enjoys the reactions.
I’ve seen his type before in other threads.
(Notice that I refer to him as a male. It seems that females rarely troll.)
In the Elizabethan period, “wherefore” meant “why,” and that meaning fits my badly hit drives even better. Many a time, I was left yelling, “WHY? WHY? Why can’t I hit the ball where I want it? Why the hell am I still torturing myself with this blasted game?”
(Back to today’s topic.)
Great comments above – liked them all. Three reactions to three of them:
1. I bought a new car in 2015 and was dumbstruck when I found that CD players were no longer an option.
2. A short while ago, a realization hit me with crushing force: For the most part, my generation (I’m 70) is now irrelevant to most persons 50 and below, except when someone wants to blame us for something. I don’t know where this fragmented country is headed, but I do know that what we think is held in little regard. Goodbye, youth, indeed.
3. I suggest reading Heller’s “Closing Time.” It is about the disappearing World War II generation. Its themes apply to us.
