Life is a Lemon and I Want My Money Back-Saturday 9

1. When was the last time that you asked for your money back?  I did not receive an order, I believe it was delivered to someone else. That happened all the time living in CA.  I had to buy it somewhere else so I asked for the refund and it was immediate.  I asked for my money back from a travel agent who booked a non existent seat on an airplane trip when DD2 went to London for a semester.  In order for her to go that same day everyone else was going we had to put her in Business Class and we had to pay the considerable difference.  We only got a small refund from the agency who said British Airways was at fault and BA said the agents were at fault.  I was very upset at the time.

2. What was the last thing that you did to help someone?
Just yesterday, I helped myself to my grandson which gave the nanny a break.
3. At what point of your life do you think you started to understand who you are?
Maybe by the time you are 30.  I started to understand myself at about 26.

4. Are there times when you thought you had taken a fall, only to discover more about yourself?
I have fallen only to discover I broke my ankle.

5. What was the last thing you did where you could not believe in what you were doing?
The bank I worked with had a payday advance feature which I did not like.  It had a horrible interest rate and people ended in financial difficulties from it. 

6. Do you think that you must struggle to become strong?
I think struggle can give you insight and understanding and for many people it makes them stronger.  I just get anxious if I have to struggle at my age.  My struggles now have to do with pain or with not being able to do what I use to do.

7. Do you feel that your dreams have meaning or are entirely random?
Sometimes they mean something and can correlate directly to something I have done or worried about.  I had some strange dreams when my mom passed away, but I knew what the meaning was.  Most are random and I can even remember them.  I never have had prophetic dreams.

8. What was the last promise you broke?
I don't usually break solemn promises.  I do break promises to myself a lot.  

9. Do you collect anything?
I use to collect dolls and I still have some of them.  Now I collect wrinkles, aching bones and walnuts in the fall.


  1. Wrinkles and aching bones sounds like my collection. LOL

  2. I think I want to be one your dogs if they get to go to doggie dude ranch. I have four spoiled mutts but never considered a dude ranch for them. Promise you will not tell my dogs about this.

  3. Your answers always crack me up, especially your "collections". :) I can see how that bank policy would get a lot of people into hot water. That was probably the point, huh?
