You're not the one causing pain here, and I doubt you're going to inspire any behavioral changes with that plea.

You could put him on your "Ignore Poster" list for a few days and see how it improves your quality of life...

Speaking of pain, both our local shippers (Horizon & Matson) have reduced their fuel surcharges again. I believe it's Matson's third or fourth reduction this year.

Norwegian Cruise Lines has found a more innovative way to reduce their fuel surcharges. A couple years ago they had three cruise ships plying the islands with a fourth on order. Now they have one.


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
