Wasteworker wrote: "As the wife of a wasteworker this hits home. It could have been my husband. The kids and I pray for him every morning to be safe each day. People do not realize the danger they put other people in when they get in a hurry on the road. Can we just slow down a bit, whatever we are in a hurry for will be there if we arrive five minutes later than we planned. Our prayers go out to the family."
Ace: "NICE....kick 'em when their down. That's the way to build customer loyalty."

Birddog asked: "Why is California home insurance LESS than Florida ? They have: Mudslides, earthquakes, wind, rain, etc., but they pay LESS than we do."

ICThingsClearly wrote: "@dawgman: Women DO pay! And we know how tough it is because we're doing it all ourselves! Why don't some of these men GROW UP and accept their responsibilities and provide for their children?
MaxTash wrote: "I paid child support for 19 years. I was never late and I sent more money than I was supposed to at times. But, I would have more sympathy for these poor mothers who cry for more and more support when they present receipts proving that 100% of the support money actually went to supporting the child."
