Well I am angry. I decided I was going to setup to get broadcast TV, I go to get the converter, well a HDTV (small one, open box) was only $20 more, so I get it. The TV is fine but I go to hook up the antenna that the apartment building ran, only to[…]

If you don’t have a plate or placard you do not belong in a handicapped spot. It does not matter if “you are only going to be a minute” or “there are no other open spots” or “you are just dropping off your kids” you are a stain on the face of the earth, you[…]
