Only way I can afford to take my kids. And since I live in Jersey, an easy chance to see dem Stillers.

How much did it go up? I figure I can call and get it back down or free if I complain enough. I hate doing that, but I know others have and it's worked. I don't mind paying a good bit for it, because being in Pittsburgh and being a 49er fan it's the only way(well up until the 49ers got good again and started getting national games), I could watch the 49ers every week. So it was worth the 150-200$ a year or whatever I paid. I know they are still giving it away for free for new customers, so I will have some wiggle room since I never ask for freebies from them for anything else.

and I just looked ... looked like they hit for me like 35$/mth for Sunday Ticket for 6 months(early renewal auto pay). Still only around 210$ for the whole season, and I'm sure if I call I can get some of the shaved off. Still doesn't bother me much, for me it's still worth it, and for as cheap as my bill is the rest of the year I can't complain much.

It was $249 for the basic. I called and they offered it for $191 (weird price point). Through various friends and message boards, I know people that have gotten it for anything ranging from free (for renewals, not new customers) to $179.

They weren't willing to do any better, so I'm out. Red Zone and Sirius radio time for me. Also cancelled Center Ice to spite my face.

Not that I need mayo and bacon but I ordered both on my turkey sub from Get-Go for lunch and got neither. Paid $1.50 extra for bacon.

So, I got a dry turkey sub with tomato and lettuce. No time to run back to Get-Go.

This is what happens when you eat gas station food, I guess.

So is this a document including a table, or does the word doc simply contain a table? If it is the latter, I understand your beef.

Apple's battery monitors for the mouse and keyboard. My iMac has been telling me for six weeks that I need to change the batteries for both.
Either your code is bad or you're in cahoots with the battery industry....because I'm still going strong on both.

In this case, someone in their 40s or up that is used to one program and doesn't like to stray. This could happen at any age, but seems more prevalent with older folk who don't like change.

Shoes that are sold with shoelaces that wear out in a few weeks. Increase my cost by $1 and give me decent shoelaces.
