    I learned more about carpentry from the contractors restoring my building than I ever knew before. I asked a lot of questions while they were working, was probably very annoying in hindsight, but I was paying them a lot of money so understanding what they are doing and why shouldn't be considered out of line.

      I agree; Shakespeare knew all about that fine line

          I'm sure the fine people at the high quality Discover Card services will take care of everything for you, refund all your money and make this entire episode a distant memory without your having to lift even one finger.

            They either got your username and password or hacked into the account. Maybe they got ahold of your credit card numbers, or if you have that chip thing on your card, stole it from that.

              You blacked out and spent all your chashback rewards on T Swift? I guess it happens.

              • At least they were nice enough to just use the cashback rewards and not max your card out.....

                  I never minded homeowners asking questions when I used to do oil burners, and now explaining stuff to the students and staff where I work now. The annoying thing is people who used to question the cost, without trying to understand the work - or the ones now that just say "so you're not going to fix it".

                    They did. I always have good experiences with them.
                    But...seriously, how did someone get into my online account to redeem them!?

                      I'm sure there's a 2nd half to this joke that I could build off of, but....I'm exhausted today....how about we just say, umm...

                      "Nah....as you know, I already own ALL the T Swift albums....."

                        You, and your hundred bucks, are never ever getting back together.

                          The contracter was really good at keeping me abreast of unexpected costs and issues and he didn't do any of the actual work himself that I saw. So we spent a lot of time climbing around and talking about what was happening and why. He did a good job and is my first phone call when I need something done. He did a lot of special things on my place at my request, that often started with "is it possible to.....".
