I know a fella that was given $500 to buy computer stuff to work from home (new monitor, keyboard, mouse ect.). He already had all that stuff so he expensed it out and returned it all the items the next day.
I learned this when I worked as a server/bartender at a neighborhood bar and grill that was next to a hotel. A group of construction workers would come in for lunch and dinner several times during the two weeks they were in town on a job. The foreman was a gregarious and fun guy, and everyone on his crew seemed to like him. The hotel had mini fridges and microwaves in their rooms, and the foreman would frequently buy up sandwich makings and snacks for his guys, And even make and package sandwiches for lunches while they were on the site.
He would tip me very well to save copies of checks throughout my day. Any check without alcohol and not over a certain amount on it and he would pay me $1 per check. It was nothing for me to do it for him, I would just print an extra copy and keep it in my book until he came in to collect them the next time.
He told me he was free to pretty much buy his guys anything he wanted at his discretion and expense it, so he would turn all the checks in at... keep reading on reddit ➡
I just finished grocery shopping and again, when I looked at my receipt I noticed I was charged incorrectly for items. This is super common for me (in the GTA), and at least twice a month I experience this. This is the main reason I use self-checkouts when I can because I can check the price of each item I scan. When I end up using a cashier they are quickly scanning items, and I find it hard to read the price as they scan. I consider myself a pretty busy person, but not as busy as other people are .... regardless of our schedules though, I highly recommend ALL of you read your grocery receipt before you pack your car with the goodies. I think this happens to me a lot because I buy items that are on sale and it is those sale items that are constantly scanning incorrectly. Today at Farm Boy (a store I really like), incorrectly charged me for 5 items, and I almost gave up in going back to get my money difference because I had to get back to work. But I caved and went back, not on... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm pretty big on piracy. I'll download/upload a shitton of pretty much everything. Hell, I downloaded Doom Eternal just to seed it. I was thinking of how much would I owe if somebody suddenly charged me for all that and these are the numbers I came up with.
The following assumptions have been made:
Every movie is about 1GB and costs 10$ (I only download compressed 720p)
Each music album is 150mb and costs 5$. (I only download MP3 320)
I have downloaded and uploaded roughly 15TB's of data in BitTorrent the past 2 years. So that would make up about 150,000 Euros in movies. (10Euros /GB)
I have a music collection of roughly 105GB's and upload 24 albums per day on Soulseek for the past two years. That would be about 87,000Euros from uploads alone plus an additional 3,330Euros for the initial downloads.
Total: 250,930 Euros.
Now this is pretty unrealistic for three reasons. Most albums cost more than 5Euros, I upload way more than 24 albums per day on Soulseek and not all data... keep reading on reddit ➡
For example, I work at Home Depot. At the end of every transaction there’s a code and a password to a website that will take you to a short survey. Usually it’s just a page of questions asking how well the person assisting you did, and that person can get up to $10 extra added to their check per survey. A few of my coworkers really rely on those surveys to pay rent and for things for their children. Please take the surveys to help not only the store, but to help out it’s employees.
Hey Daddies, so in the vlog linked below from March 2019, Sofia mentions that she's dating a guy from Harvard. She says some things seem off about him and she thinks he's lying about his degree so she has a Barstool employee check the Harvard portal. The employee confirms the guy went to Harvard and if you listen closely at 1:39 you hear him say "2004. he studied classics."
.... & yes daddies, suitman graduated from Harvard in 2004 and he studied classics! (see pic below)
Also daddies, listen to what Sofia says about suitman in that vlog - "I was fully convinced this guy was a full on con artist, going to murder, kill me." She also says she had her mom visit his apartment complex to check he was really renting it (her moms a realtor) Some BIG red flags early on!
Then April 2019, they are pictured at that event together confirming their relationship. Stran... keep reading on reddit ➡
Next time you go to cvs, provide an email address and you'll get your receipts emailed to you, with the coupons. (I worked there for years). You could also download the CVS app which will give you access to all of that and additional coupons.
So many people aren't aware of this and complain about the receipts and the waste of paper, yet when cashiers let them know that there are other options, they dismiss it. It's frustrating. When you're working and constantly have customers tell you that this is a waste of paper, but they refuse to try digital receipts, it's tiresome. If you don't like the long receipts and think it's ridiculous... please ask to enroll in digital receipts at your next shopping trip.
flashing a quick message in the upper left of my screen...such and such has purchased yada yada, is just useless.
when a purchase is made, give me a way to view the purchase like i would on any other RL receipt.
what is that? two lines of code?
Friendly Reminder to submit your receipts for Home Depot Purchases between 4/13 and 5/30 for their 11% off Menards match. Home Depot is killing it right now, don't leave money on the table. I just saved $100+.
Participants with no portal yet have dwindled to a minimum, so any data is greatly appreciated.
If you are a lurker, please have the rest of us in mind and post any portal receipt updates so we have some gauge of progress and status.
There should be an app that logs all of your receipts. This would be useful because a) it will save a lot of paper and b) all of your receipts would be stored in one spot, so you wouldn't have to worry about losing them
I understand that it’s taking me an extra second to get to everyone. But you’ll notice that’s because I’m frequently sanitizing my hands and changing my gloves. This is what is making it OK for me to touch all these people’s bags. You do not work here. I do not know where you’ve been. Just be freakin’ patient and I will tell you which order is yours.
Thank you to everyone who is being safe and patient.
I made these in photoshop and had alot of fun! If you want to buy them as a sticker you can buy them here on redbubble!
Edit-THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH FOR 100 UPVOTES. YALL ARE GREAT!
Did this happen to anyone else? I donated 100% of my ticket and got this receipt as an email:
Ticket & vehicle pass: $0
Delivery fee: $0
9% NV LET: $85.50
REFUND TOTAL: $85.50
DONATION TOTAL: $977.69
For a total of $1063.19.
However my original purchase was:
$475: 2 (refundable)
$1400: 0 (refundable)
$140: 1 (refundable)
9% Nevada Live Entertainment Tax on Tickets: $85.50 (refundable)
Shipping Fee: $15.00 (refundable)
Ticket Vendor Service Fee: $12.00 (nonrefundable)
2.7% Credit Card Processing Fee: $32.47 (nonrefundable)
Total Order Amount: $1234.97
I get that the $44.47 in fees is gone. That leaves a total of $1190.50 that's refundable. Where did the missing $127.31 go?
This buyer keeps claiming that we never sent their package and that their "brother that works at USPS" also claims that it was never sent.
the fucking tracking history on USPS shows that "USPS is in possession of the item" and "it's currently in transit to the next facility."
I even took a picture of the physical receipt, that matches the dates and times of the tracking info on USPS.com and sent that to her.
But she keeps arguing that we never sent it and that the it tracking number is "not legit"
Wtf is wrong with people?
Edit: she is now threatening a chargeback and to leave an "honest review" in various forums. Shes also suggesting that we, get this, refund her and ask her to ship the other package back once she receives it. Yeah, that screams red flag scam behavior.
so i just found out that meri’s catfisher has a full on site? he (well she - since it came out it was actually a woman) posts all the text messages, photos meri sent, and even has recordings of all the voicemails meri left?! am i late to know about this?
