• Can you get a refund from a pawn shop if they sold you an item infested with bedbugs (even if the pawn shop didn't know about it)?

    A friend of mine bought a piano keyboard from a pawn shop, and now they've been bitten by bedbugs. The only recent item purchased was that piano, which had a bedbug skin in it after inspection.

    It works for a few minutes, but then it freezes, and at other times, it takes a minute for it to "catch up" to the point where I can type. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • If I were to leave my job, how can I get another without references?

    A month or so ago, I got suspended because I hit someone at work (they were screaming at me in my ear/face!). Luckily, I didn't get fired (I know I should be grateful, and I am)! Now I'm afraid that if I leave, I will get terrible references if I were to ask for them, so I feel that I shouldn't get references at all. Now, if that... show more
    A month or so ago, I got suspended because I hit someone at work (they were screaming at me in my ear/face!). Luckily, I didn't get fired (I know I should be grateful, and I am)! Now I'm afraid that if I leave, I will get terrible references if I were to ask for them, so I feel that I shouldn't get references at all. Now, if that wasn't enough, this is my second job ever, so most of my skills that I have I gained from this job. What are my options? I could ask some co-workers that weren't there during the incident (they did not see it), but two out of the three I could ask would be clouded by what they heard about the incident. Other than the three co-workers I could ask, I have no one to ask! tl;dr? I got rightfully suspended at work for something I did, and I want to know how to get another job without references because this is the second job I've had in my life!

    My sister and I have been trying to repair our only bathroom sink. There's this sink ball rod, and the part that screws it to the sink drain (the golden part) dropped into a hole in the wall. I want a new part, but I don't know where to get it. I have exhausted all of my hardware store options, except for one... This is what we have done: -Obtained a sink rod kit. The golden part was too small for the plumbing under the sink, so we used a gray plastic part instead. It leaks into a bucket, but in very small drips. -I have tried to locate the part. There were none, except for a similar part and a cone washer in an attempt to find a better fit. -Tried to put the cone washer in the gray plastic part. an attempt to stop the leaks. It did not work. Now I'm stuck with a leaking sink rod drain area! We are now using a bathtub that no one uses as a sink! If you did read all of this, thank you. My questions are: what is that part called, and where can I get one? My sink must be an older model, if that helps!

    I have three things that I want to get fixed someday, but I want to save money as well. A: Compaq desktop computer with Windows XP Media Center Edition on it. --------------- Long after getting a new motherboard due to booting issues, my sister and I agreed to do a system recovery on it. However, because of the new motherboard and the tattooing issue, we have CODE PURPLE on it, so we cannot use it anymore. Another thing I consider doing to it, if it comes to installing a new operating system on it, is to upgrade it to Windows 7, if it ends up being possible (Windows 8, as far as I know, is too slow). B: HP G71 laptop with Windows 7 on it -------------- After it was accidentally dropped out of an SUV, it received a worsening broken screen that obstructs viewing. When I asked to see how much it would cost to repair it, they told me I should buy a new laptop, which was done. However, this particular laptop works great, and it would be even better if it had a new screen. Right now, it is connected to a monitor via VGA so it can be used. I don't want to lose this laptop just because of a broken screen. Repairing the screen would save space on my computer desk, or at least become a two-monitor set-up PC. C: Seagate Dashboard -320 GB --------------- It was USD $50 on Amazon.com. It would perhaps be easier to get a new one, but this one disconnects and reconnects constantly. My sister says it is broken. Should I just get a new one instead?

    I have two 32" x 40" paintings that I made that I ABSOLUTELY cannot afford to frame (it's $200 for both!). I was wondering about other and preferably cheaper alternatives to buying a frame. One of the paintings is on 3/16" (standard sized) foam core board, but it is warped (I can fix it). The other painting is the same size, but it is on mat board that I plan to glue onto the foamcore so it can be as thick as the foamcore. The reason I am asking is that I want to create a canvas-like appearance to the board as I cannot afford to buy the frames. All answers are appreciated, but I need answers as fast as possible so I can order the materials online (I need these paintings framed/mounted before April), please. Thank You very much!
