I have never understood that about the electric co. ads either. Quit wasting my money telling me what a good job you are doing. I figure you're already doing a good job when I get up every morning and the light comes on when I hit the switch. Yeah, its not like I have a choice of power companies so why the ads?
MamaC, I have the answer for the bathroom/phone. There is a hidden sensor in the toilet seat. Pressure activates it so as soon as you sit down, the phone rings. It happens here too.
I have a no solicitation sign on my front door. Stops ALL of the magazine sales, church visits and other people that come to the door wanting something.
We have a carport and the backdoor opens onto it. What I do NOT understand is that the UPS guy will come and knock on the back door when he has a package for us.
And here's another, I don't understand. My husband had a very expensive saw stolen at a job site. His boss claimed it on his insurance and gave my husband the money to buy a new saw. He got a good deal on a new one on ebay and ordered it. It had to arrive DHL and it was to be in a rather large, heavy box.
We have a very long driveway and this was an expensive saw, so we were on the lookout and figured that we'd have to sign for it as it was shipped insured. Imagine my surprise one day when I go out to get in the car and the gigantic box that I CAN"T move is sitting in the middle of my driveway, about halfway to the street. DIRECTLY behind the car. He never even attempted to come to the door nor get it closer. Hubby was livid that it was left almost on the street.
