I would like to write about my disappointing story which at first seems to be a good one. I do ride sharing and I found a great application called GasBuddy. I’m so happy to use Gas Buddy with its exaggerating claim to let me save up to ¢.30 per gallon. Of course, for a driver like myself, saving this much per gallon is a great help.
Well, I had a slap right in the face today, February 28, 2018, when a charge of $29.00 didn’t go through my account. As I was reading this failed transaction I was puzzled about the location of that transaction. It says 7:00 A.M. in San Francisco. I otherwise I could have been sleepwalking putting gas in my car at this certain time as I am not aware that I did this.
If we all know how hard it is making a living here in the high priced San Francisco area we will relate to my frustration. And to get scammed instead of making our life a bit lighter. Never use GasBuddy it is a scam!!! This given company that I don’t even dare to say the last word of it for it’s backstabbing me by stealing from me in spite of its overstate promises.
I’ve been using GasBuddy for almost half a year now and it’s scary how much money is stolen from me by this company. I tried to reach their customer support by phone but it is impossible to reach them. I sent an email to their support and I never get replies. I immediately called my bank, Bank Of America, to block this rip off transactions. I was double charged and I was being charged gas prices that I didn’t even make? One trick they play is that they never charge their customers right away and seem to earn transactions then they will randomly make the charge. This will make the busy customer not realize that extra charge they made. This truly is overwhelming. Anyways I’m responsible for this error of trusting this company and the most important thing is I’ve seen their deceptions.
I advise every driver like myself who are using GasBuddy to review their ACH transaction, which is what will be listed on their account for Gas Buddy, to take note of their gas expenses with them and make sure that they made this transaction as I’ve learned this bitter lesson from them.
I love to eat Filipino foods, but today January 1, 2018, I had made the mistake going to the worst Filipino restaurant ever. Max’s restaurant in Milpitas, California gave me the most disappointing experience ever that I will never ever forget.
I was in Milpitas, California visiting and I decided to go to a Filipino restaurant as I was very hungry. I went inside and there is a family standing in front of me waiting. They seem to be there for quite a while before I even got there. I stand in line and also waited. At the front desk of Max’s restaurant, there is no one to provide a service to customers. It has been past ten minutes and still no employee of that Max’s restaurant to serve us. It is said about this restaurant to wait to be seated, but for a very hungry customer like myself to make us wait forever has been stressful. I was very hungry and was starting to lose my patience. I then went outside to call the restaurant and expressed my disappointment at the very bad customer service.
I went back inside the restaurant hoping there is someone now at the front desk. I saw two employees of this restaurant as they might be alarmed about my phone call. I began to record with my cell phone and do a review and the employee saw me. The big lady yelled at me and told me I was not allowed to record. So I stopped recording. She then told me to get out of the Filipino restaurant.
I went outside looking for a nearby open restaurant as my stomach is growling. I went inside the Vietnamese Pho restaurant nearby. When I entered the big lady who works at Max’s restaurant was there standing in front of the cashier. She started yelling at me commanding me to delete what I’ve recorded. She becomes irrational that she gets very angry at me. There are many people in the Pho restaurant who witnessed this. This is a total embarrassment to the Filipino community. I went outside as she went outside too.
She asked me my name and I gave her my name. I asked what her name is she told me something like Abey. She claims to be the supervisor of Max’s Filipino restaurant. She called me unprofessional and threaten me to call the police while she is the one being aggressive, yelling at me. I am a customer and she is one of the heads of the restaurant. Imagine this backward thinking she did. This woman has no shame at all as she told me that I can never be near the Milpitas Max’s restaurant ever again and she will remember my face.
When we look at the customer review for this given Filipino restaurant online, we will see that it is very low and had many complaints. I will definitely never ever eat at this Filipino restaurant in Milpitas California again. Those who had a bad experience of this restaurant, let us make reviews of our experience. A restaurant run like this doesn’t deserve to continue operating.
Living here in Alaska is glorifying but can be very highly priced. More often it’s not logical to eat outside the house in a good restaurant considering our budgets. With controlled expenses living here in Alaska with ten dollars a day or four hundred Philippines pesos a day is impossible.
The prices here compared to California are around eighty percent higher. That is the downside living here in Alaska in comparison with living in California or the Philippines but the positive side is that there are more opportunities here and the benefits that residents have by government support is pleasurable.
Some of these residential benefits include The Permanent Fund Dividends (T.P.F.D.) or a shared profit percentage of what the state of Alaska made within a year is distributed to all who resided in Alaska for a full calendar year. The companies here give a high priority to the locals when it comes to hiring and giving available work hours than nonresident employers. It’s not that difficult to get a job in here when we live here in Alaska it reminds me when California Silicon Valley is still flourishing just walk in and you have a job.
Alaska is a good place to be in if people are looking to make a good living but we also need to be smarter spending. I can’t help but compare the prices between California and Alaska stores since I’m the type of person who always thinks about spending money wisely while buying products I’m really satisfied with. Most of the times I go beyond the limit of my budget.
For the long-term plans, I will stay here just to save money but will move to places where the cost of living is much lower where I can set up my dreams. Thinking as a family man, a dad, I would consider moving to another state for my children to where they can live happily and have the best opportunities for their studies.
There will be a much brighter future investing in digital currencies (for example: Bitcoins) as the fiat currencies is heading into inflation due to uncontrollable printings of chit or reciepts.
Why is it right to put money into crypto-currencies in place of fiat cash? Are we able to build a much better destiny moving forward into this improving civilization?
First of all, as era advances we are absolutely heading toward the virtual age where all of us will soon have to depend upon technological in preference to mechanical buying and selling; secondly, because the banks keeps on printing chits disguised as cash the phantasm of the humans will cause increasingly more money owed which will lead to a monetary system collapse; thirdly, the fresh and the new technology will increase the ease of access and reliability of computers in using virtual currencies which will make way for the new generations to aspire and give them freedom due to the fact that these decentralized currencies aren’t owned by the authorities but owned by the rightful accounts; and sooner or later, more and more businesses will be accepting these legitimate way of digital transactions as the problems which it face beneath its development are gradually being solved and improved by its pioneers.
Even though it seems very complicated at the very beginning of trying to own these crypto-currencies, moving into it will be a whole lot less difficult with the right knowledge which can be learned being taught via social networking and with much easier access of computer device and the plentiful inovated developments of cellphone applications.
To begin making an investment in bitcoins I personally would like to invite you to join the most convenient and dependable provider, Coinbase.
I truely reccomend the use of Coinbase to get started due to the fact they’re more flexible when it comes to payments than other company. By using their service we can have our virtual wallets, buy, sell and watch the current updates of the currencies with their cellphone applications.
