    This is rather funny--in today's mail I got another batch of those Refer-a-Friend coupons. They came in a # 10 envelope, but instead of the usual half-dozen or so, there were something like two dozen.

    I never asked for more, but I find it odd that I just got this batch. I wonder if someone from DirecTV is watching this thread. :confused: :D

    On a related note, the property manager Emails me yesterday to tell me that the residents directly above me (3rd floor, same model/layout as my unit) are moving out by September 1st, and if I want to avoid the hassle of vacating my unit for 4 weeks, storing all my stuff, then bringing it all back and re-occupying my same unit (2nd floor), I'm welcome to just move in to the unit above, since it was renovated last year. So I tell Amanda, "This sounds like it might be appealing. Plus, since I'll be on the top floor, I can now put my dish on the roof!" Her response: "I love it! Lets really push them over the edge!" (meaning her superiors)

    At tomorrow's bonfire, I plan on passing out a bunch of the Refer-a-Friend coupons. I think when all is said and done, I will have come out ahead in this. :icon_da:

    Yeah, until you come home late one night, tired and not thinking clearly, and instead of getting off the elevator on the fourth floor, you get off on the third floor and go into your old apartment. Hopping into bed with the woman who's now living there, you are arrested and sent to jail for the next 15 years.

    We'll write you in prison, Vader. Make sure you get a south facing cell so you can still have DirecTV.

    :D :D :D

    The buildings are only 3 floors here, so if I get off on the 4th floor, I'm really lost!

    Does your building even have an elevator?

    If it does, I want to live there. Every apartment buiulding around here is three floors and none of them have elevators.

    Winters,...
    You can buy one!

    "...And as we wind on down the road
    Our shadows taller than our soul.
    There walks a lady we all know
    Who shines white light and wants to show
    How ev'rything still turns to gold.
    And if you listen very hard
    The tune will come to you at last.
    When all are one and one is all
    To be a rock and not to roll.
    And she's buying a stairway to heaven."

    And in the mean time, she's watching DirecTV......

    Good observation. I THINK elevators are typically only required in apartment buildings greater than three stories.

    Well, I don't think that's the reason there's no elevators here. Because of the geology of the Red River Valley, any building that's much taller than a 3 story building needs to have some extraordinary measures taken to prevent it from sinking into the clay here.

    It sounds like you now have someone from the building on your side? Amanda?

    Oh, trust me, as the property manager, Amanda will answer to her superiors who started this whole mess. However, she is sympathetic to my plight.

    Unfortunately, truth can be much more entertaining than fiction.

    It went fine. I was only there for a short period of time due to other commitments (and I'll miss this Sunday's altogether, unfortunately), but I passed out more of the refer-a-friend coupons. :)

    After enough people sign up you should setup an MDU proposal and get a finders fee from the sysop.

    I'd rather not have an MDU DirecTV setup here.
