    God, I hope so. I put my mom on my account in 2007 back when I have more emotions than sense. It's my oldest credit line, but I'll be glad to have an excuse to keep our credit separated from here on out. :brood:

    Also, Rhianna's Fenty line sells shit that most women actually fit and sells more than two skin tone colored bras for those above a 38C cup size, so fuck it, I look forward to our new thicc lingerie overload.

    You owe money to a rental car company? What'd you do, prang one or something?

    Next time take the coverage unless you rent on an AMEX card. It's a bit spendier, but it stops all the games butt cold, because, well, you're covered.

    I thought I did, but thanks to Penske Auto Group being vague cunts, I didn't know I didn't have it.

    That said, Enterprise are bloodsucking leeches and will only get worse with one of their competitors going under.

    All rental car companies suck, and none are to be trusted. Remember that going forward.

    I rented a Camry from Enterprise back in '02 or '03. I declined the insurance, and managed to basically tear off the driver side half of the front bumper, crunch the bottom side of the driver side front fender, and also did a pretty good number on the driver side front door along with the sill below the door. I had rented the car in Florida, and some old bat didn't look before changing lanes and forced me into a curb and clipped a construction barrier. She kept going, probably never realizing what she did. When I turned in the car the attendant was in a rush, and signed the car in without really looking at it. After flying back to NY, and leaving the airport I got a call from Enterprise, the person that called was saying that the car had damage and wanted to know how I was going to take care of it. I told them I had the signed paperwork showing the car was returned without damage and that it wasn't my problem. They tried a few more times, but since I had paperwork showing that the car was returned without damage they couldn't do anything.

    It wasn't deadly, deadly space bees that got them, however.

    I've never heard of Fry's electronics, just Fry's grocery from when I lived in Phoenix. But those sound like some unique stores - bummer to see them close.

    Coincidentally, there's one in San Diego and it looks nothing at all like any of those. :lol:

    Gonna miss the place, though :( was always nice to find odds and ends and stuff you can't find at a Best Buy, like an RCA to HDMI converter that you need to buy because your cheap ass stepfather bought a flat screen from 200-fucking-2 that predated the HDMI cable. :brood:

    Guess I'll swing by this weekend and pick up some Raspberry Pi kits.
