While I’m not a big TV guy, after 9 pm I usually sit down, after we put the kids to bed to watch some TV. Recently I found out about a show on MTV called Jersey Shore. The “reality show” focuses on a group of Italian Americans who work out, wear Ed Hardy, drive an Escalade (I got one yeah…) and go clubbing, and they all live in a house on the New Jersey water shore. I have no clue why But I did some reading up on the show and it seems lots of Italians back east in New York and Jersey seem pretty pissed about the show.
Here is one thing you need to ask yourself when watching any “reality show”, is it really real? I don’t think most reality shows are just filmed, personally I think many of these shows are staged. I also think they chose the participants (actors) of the show based on how well they will do in the ratings. That being said, don’t you think they will choose the actors who will give them the highest viewership and ratings?
They call each other “Guidos”, am I offended by that? Lol fuck no. It’s TV people, it’s all bullshit and the show is designed to bring in maximum ratings. Of course the guys on the show look like douche bags because it brings in ratings $$$$$$$$$$$$. If you don’t realize that reality shows are mostly bullshit then your’e as dumb as the “Guidos” on Jersey Shore.
Whoever created the show is brilliant he knows how to push people’s buttons and he is making lots of money because of it. Also don’t you think the “Guidos” on the show put on just a bit on an act to get ratings? Doh, you dumb ass, they get paid to be on the show so I can guarantee you the play the part as cheezy as possible. Wake the f*ck up!
It amazes me that people still don’t understand reality shows are SHOWS! If the camera was on you, I think you would act different, especially if you get a paycheck because of it. And all the people calling them “Guidos”, remember this, the guys on Jersey Shore are laughing all the way to the bank you fucking idiots. It’s all about money, like most things in this world from the War In Iraq to the Jersey Shore show.
Now if the Italians on Jersey Shore are smart they will buy real estate! If anyone called me a Guido I would just laugh at them…..
I’m not really sure why I felt compelled to talk about this however it’s true. Stop watching TV and go make some money you assholes, DOH.
We came back to a mound of checks ( which is nice), but also some bills. One bill was my cell phone bill from Fido. I checked my Fido bill and noticed my bill at $132.69. I checked the bill and I had lots of charges for $1.45, and I know for a fact that I never made 20 or so 1 minute calls on my Vancouver cell phone while I was in Las Vegas.
I called Fido and they identified the calls coming from Birmingham, England (area code 121). I had the whole phone number written down but I lost it now. Anyways the charges from this f’n number came out to roughly $44.00. I never called the number ever and have no clue how this happened. This is a big reason why to always check your monthly bills, you could easily be paying for nothing and not even know about it. If you see strange charges on your bills don’t be afraid to dispute them, it’s your money! If you don’t complain then you lose and they get your money.
I never used my Vancouver cell phone while I was in Vegas, only the first 2 days before my land line was hooked up down there? My land line has 5 cent long distance calling to Canada so there is no reason to call using my cell phone.
Fido did drop the charges but it sucks that you need to worry about all these petty little things. I almost feel like dropping my cell phone all together, waste of f’n money! If you think of all the money you waste of bs things like cell phone charges it makes you want to live in a cave, lol.
This is how it looked here 3 days ago, thank God it’s 14°C today. I hate the cold and I know soon enough I will back in the Winter Wonderland Hell of Vancouver. I bought here to get away from the Winters of Vancouver. I know it’s not hot in Vegas in the winter but damn snow?! Argh!!! Thanks it only happens once in a blue moon, and the snow didn’t stick, and the next day it was back to a mild 14°C.
eeps it snowed in Vegas? Yeah and it sucked, it never stuck but still!
a sprinkle of snow on the local mountains here in Vegas…
Two days later it was 15 , and it will be the rest of the week, Thank God!
looks like the observatory in Vancouver? Yeah a house, scary I know and damn ugly….
America is a f*cked up place, they go to Afghanistan and Iraq to help people but in their own backyards they have some amazing problems. While surfing YouTube.com a few years back I typed in “Detriot ghettos”, this was before the “recession”. Most people know that Detroit is the biggest dump of sh*t in the USA. If you compare Iraq to Detroit they almost look just as bad, it’s completely insane. Ans, since the recession things in Detroit have gotten much, much worse. Think of all the bailouts to the auto manufacturers, well they all went to Detroit based car companies such as GM, Ford and Chrysler. There are tons of layoffs and unemployed in the Motor City..
Next time you support US troops think again, the U.S. government should be cleaning up at home before they go over seas to“help people” , steal oil. There is no money in helping people but there sure is in oil sales.
You need to see these videos to appreciate where you live, unless you live in Detroit.. Oh and Detroit is also America’s most dangerous city. On Halloween in Detroit they call it “Devils Night“, which has since since stopped because it got so out of control in 1984 that teens burned 800 of the abandoned homes that line the streets of Detroit’s neighbourhoods. Unreal this is in the USA.
It’s been a stressful trying to get lots of stuff before going to Vegas, and I can’t handle stress very well. So yesterday the branch manager for VanCity on Hastings Street/ Kamloops Street in Vancouver calls me. Hi “I’m so and so from VanCity”. Then, she starts asking what my business is. “I do internet marketing”. The she asks “What EXACTLY do you market on the internet?”. I start thinking, What does she mean by that? Ok, I explain I buy ads online and I promote products for various companies and I make a commission every time I make a sale. The she says “When is a convenient time for you to come in, I would like to meet you.” I thinking WTF. I ask her why do I need to come in, can’t you ask me your questions on the phone? I’m really busy and I don’t have time.” “I really need to see you in person”, she says.
She was really pissing me off, I have NOTHING to hide but why do I need to come? “Is there a problem?”. “No”, she says “I just need to ask you a few questions in person”. Ok, I’ll come in get this crap over with. I get down there in like 10 minutes and she start asking certain companies names I deal with such as Convert2Media, and who they are. The she asks why I am using a currency exchange place on Granville Street to convert large sums of money from US to Canadian currency. I’m thinking why the f*ck is that your business?
Convert2Media is one of many affiliate networks who send checks to me for the salea I make for the products I promote on the internet. I had to explain who a few other companies I deal with are as well, such BULLSHIT. And, The currency exchange place is so I can make an extra 2-3 cents for every U.S. dollar I exchange into Canadian funds”. “They give me 3 cents better for every dollar than VanCity does”, I tell her. That why I use it.
“Why are you asking me these type of questions, you’re making me feel bad and I have done absolutely nothing wrong”, I tell her. “Oh sorry to make you feel that way, I didn’t mean to do that”, b*tch says.
“I didn’t know what type of business you did so I needed to get you to come and answer some questions”. Umm yeah ok and? “Well why did you ask me, and make me feel like I did some type of criminal activity?” I appologize about that, we need to make sure you aren’t laundering money.
Are you fucking kidding me? Since I’m doing good for myself now I’m a money launderer?!
Anyways, I was just super pissed about her dragging me in to ask all that BS. Yes I realize it’s her job, but she called 4 weeks ago asking what my business was and so on. I never went in 4 weeks back because I didn’t want to waste my time on some peon who think she runs the show cause she is a branch manager at VanCity, grr. I figured she was going to ask some stupid questions, and that’s why I never wanted to meet her in person. I never had anything to hide and still don’t. Ask me anything you want, just because I make lots of money working from home makes me suspicious?!
You’re lucky I don’t take all my money and go to another bank, but I’m too lazy to move all accounts, lucky for you assh*les. Your Hastings Street branch manager is a real snag…
I hope this post ranks high in Google for the keyword “Vancity Savings”, bunch of tards.
