Apparently.

It's something called UPS Mail Innovations, where UPS uses USPS for the final week of transport.

Ever tried the Sriracha chili garlic sauce? I didn't think it possible to like anything more than the standard Sriracha...

Talked to my old landlord today and decided to settle out of court. After lots of "I'm Sorry" and much pleading I felt it was enough. Getting the $2k he originally owed us, plus interest, plus court fees. Dropping the case for that potential $2k extra the state says I'm due.

I explained to him that just because the state says I'm entitled to it, doesn't mean I should take it. To me that's not a +1 move to make in life. So I called the wife to let her know what the deal was and she seemed upset with the outcome. Wanting that $2k extra now that shes been planning on it. lol

Later in the conversation we agreed that we'll make that money back somewhere else, that this is fair enough. I just happened to go downstairs to go through more of my random inventory and come to find out something I paid $1 for is potentially worth anywhere from $100-$10k! Coincidence?

But good for you for showing mercy, and congrats on the unexpected (potential) windfall.

I cant ******* believe that the people's court just called me and want to help me with my case! lol

The chick said that if we're awarded the case, we definitely get paid and even if we lose we still get paid.

I'm an ******* at times, no doubt about it, but there's no way I could do that to this guy after the phone call we just had the other day.

"Ohh hey, remember how we settled everything and you're sending me a check? Well I lied, now I'm taking you on a TV show!" lol

It happens. These are old cars. Generic (straight) hose doesn't work well in terms of the tight bends, but I have found that Autozone and Kragen / O'Reilley sell inexpensive replacements that are pretty close to OEM (typically a tad over-length, some trimming required), and amazingly, they are usually in stock locally.
