I had an older guy yesterday ask me for change. He said he “forgot to get change before he came to the car wash this time.” I said “No sorry…. I do not have change but you can get change from this device that can actually verify bills and give the correct change….. Every Time I just installed it! It is unbelievable!”….. Actually I just said “No sorry…. But you can get change here.”
The moral of the story should be post signs…. But does a changer really give change? 🙂 There are so many ways to say it…. I should have been keeping a list how customers ask for it. Maybe people just do not understand what a changer is?
Maybe if the changer was called a bill breaker? (I know what you elitist believe a bill breaker is! LOL 🙂 ) Or maybe a case quarter maker? But I did not have a clue what a “case quarter” was…. So maybe “Case Quarter Bill Changer”…. Or “Changer” for short…. I am glad I have single handedly come up with the standard for the industry. But let’s be honest here…. Just because I do not write free paid ads for bad magazines or do unpaid ad speeches (which I have done 🙂 ) does not mean I can not make up crap just like any stupid owner or another guy who owns or runs a crappy company. OMG…. I dare to say I am different…. I have owned a…. Wait for it…. Actually this does not matter at all if you own a car wash! LOL 🙂 Why? Maybe not so must in the case quarter bill changer market but others.
So everyone in all industries from this day forward use the term “Changer”…. I am the most knowledgeable car wash person in this room at this time! (Actually this is a fact! No negotiating allowed…. Also the best at…. Well everything…. I am the only person in the room! LOL 🙂 ) Or you could just use something like the image above…. but of course the above image is not allowed to be used and you must pay me for my phone art! 🙂
My wife has an iPhone 7 plus and I recommended that she should restart it every night. But she thought I was kidding…. It just seems like a buggy os / phone? Also the battery life seems bad for a new phone.
So does anyone have a restarting routine? I actually do not have one for my Android phone but I do not remember any weird problems? My wife seems to constantly complain about it.
BTW Her common problem are the lock screen and no audio on phone calls…. Could be human error! But restarting the phone always fixes the problem? Today the problem was the Bluetooth quit working and the phone claimed it was trying to connect…. Restarted the phone and the Bluetooth was actually turned off? Turned blue on and everything worked fine…. She has been complain about it for a week.
Android weird problem I have…. Same all the time. App related…. App deletes and refreshes directories incorrectly. You can wait or restart for the os to fix or refresh the problem. I should find a new app though! LOL 🙂 Stupid apple texts…. But then again they are related to a wife issue. LOL 🙂
PRO TIP: Best feature on any phone…. Fast charging! Worth upgrading your phone. It is that great!
So if you see a sticker on a Dodge in a junk yard which says “Remove before assembly” in three languages (English, German and Spanish)…. Does that mean someone dropped the ball here? LOL 🙂
Well I thought it was funny. 🙂
I have purchase a “real” smartwatch before…. one that retailed for over $300. Sure it was nice I guess? But there are only a couple features you use after the first week.
– Being waterproof
– Weather (I like the weather…. but it is really worthless.)
– Time between charges (> 1 day…. <1 day gets super annoying I mean I never want to use it again annoying.)
Everything else including a color display is a total waist and I dare anyone to say you play games or reply to text on your watch. (Sure canned text can work if you are hell bent to use your phone.) I did call people and text but for the first week only. I answered the phone once by saying “why would I answer the phone from that person?”…. WHOOPS! LOL 🙂 Then I turned that feature off! 🙂 I also used the watch speakerphone feature when on a ladder…. but I could just call when I get off the ladder? 🙂
Well I started looking for another “smartwatch”…. there is actually a watch that fits all my requirements. The only “issue” anyone could have is it is not touchscreen and it is epaper and not color. But it is a WATCH! It is also cheap…. well because Fitbit purchased them and now they are basically discontinuing the brand.
The Pebble 2 se cost $55.95 on amazon.com last a week with a charge, you can pick what notifies you, it counts your steps (if you are into that), you can use it for sleep also…. because it last more then one day. LASTLY it can tell the time! You can also download stupid apps and now I can check stock quotes…. my stock app on my phone always locks (still worthless right? 🙂 ) I downloaded a stopwatch and a timer…. to do stuff with! 🙂 Weather…. but I honestly do not care about the weather.
OKAY…. it does notifications, last more than 4 days and is waterproof! It wins…. Sorry it is the best! Except the Samsung cell watch which is independent and can be use in an emergency…. but they cost over $60.
I really like this guy and his sons…. but he asked me if I was “too scared to go to his house without a ____ man.” I was not sure why I should be scared though? They have shoot outs, sell drugs and rob people over by my car wash…. it should be safer at his house right? I WAS WRONG! He had 4-5 WASP NESTS on his porch! WTF it was a setup! HE TRIED TO KILL ME! LOL 🙂 YES I WAS SCARED! (I am actually allergic to wasp and passed out and got a free ride to the ER last time I got stung.)
It would have been neat to see this neighborhood back in its prime. I love old houses and these homes now. The houses are also super cool inside and they have great details no builder would do today. Someone told me the houses are all over 100 years old? (Which actually could be true because the “city” / mining town was created around 1880.)
(I mention back in the day because both houses next to this house are gone now…. they burnt down. Along with others in the neighborhood. Still very cool hood…. I also love the “downtown” aspect. Which is basically 90% out of business unfortunately for the residents.)
I told this guy he should run for the Birmingham City Council…. it pays basically 75k from 15k I believe (part time job also) and they do not do anything for this district. If I was a BCC loser I would actually improve the area with my actually income that the BCC is basically stealing from the people of Birmingham…. just saying. (Sure it would be a little amount of money (75k)…. but better then nothing!) Actually I would keep 50% because a brother has to wear stupid clothing and purchase boxing gloves. LOL 🙂 Politics and all the media needs to just start over at all levels I believe…. I blame it on lawyers.
