The Question Club
These questions, or at least topics, have been recently posted to therealsugshady and tucson, so if you're in the 0.01% of people who read either, you'll already have read these questions and can move on freely. Everyone else, though, stay and answer. :-P
Do any of you have satellite service? If so, what service? What kind of equipment do you use- what's good and what's bad? How satisfied are you? If you had this service but cancelled it, why? Since I live in Arizona, rainy days and clouds aren't very prevalent.
Have any of you tried Cox Communication's digital telephone service? I've only heard of one person who did, and they got charged something absurd like $40 a month for very basic service. Qwest has a $25 a month plan with three free service add-ons, but hey, they're Qwest.
I've been trying on bridal dresses on lately, but only at one store. My mother pointed out that all of the dresses were missing beads, dirty, or both. I was told that alterations to these dresses would cost $150-200 including rebeading. Now I can't recall if that included rebeading the sides and other areas that don't need to be altered... I was also told that I would have to take the dress to a dry cleaner and pay my own money to have it spot-cleaned (but it couldn't be pressed or it would lose beads.) I have a coupon for 20% off an in-stock dress, so if I bought a $900 dress, it would only cost me about $720 plus alterations, beading, cleaning, etc. But I don't know if a) it would be better to order a dress, pay the full amount that the dress is worth, and wait the 4-5 months to have a mostly clean, missing very few beads dress; or b) suck it up and get something in-stock, getting my discount but paying to have it rebeaded and altered and cleaned. Is it really common procedure for a bridal shop to have dirty and slightly worn dresses?
