    So I have been living in this apartment for the last 2 years, and am considering extending it for the 3rd year. But after finding out that my school is moving location to a place a few miles away (I don't drive in this city), I have to move to be closer to the school's new location. But I won't be moving to a new home until January, which is in 5 months. However, my apartment manager said they can't offer a 5mo lease, since their only lease options are 9, 12, or 13mo. So the only way I can move out is go for the "month to month" lease option. But when they sent me the renewal offer, they did not mention any month to month "fee" that I have to pay on top of the increased lease (it's 1600/mo plus a 200 "fee" for each month). I was about to sign my renewal lease contract when I saw that I have to pay 1800/mo instead of the 1600/mo that I was initially told. So, my question is...can I refuse to pay the extra $200/mo fee on the basis that I wasn't told it would be added on my renewal offer?

  • Will a tooth filling work well enough in place of a root canal?

She said she would recommend me get a root canal to have it fixed since the cavity is really close to the root and a small part of the root seem to be beginning to show signs of infection. But since having a root canal done would cost me well over $2k out of pocket after insurance, I opted to just have a filling done. So, my question is that if a tooth need (or in this case, highly recommends) a root canal...would a simple filling do just as well to prevent further cavity/infection of that tooth? Or would I still need to get a root canal done even after my tooth is filled?

She said that it meant I have an infection in there and that it might've been caused by an infection that occurred due to the dental filling (although she isn't sure why). After getting home, I noticed that I can feel the bubble in my mouth and when I brushed my teeth, I can see a little bit of blood in the rinse water. So she had me on 10 days of amoxicillin antibiotics, which I am currently just one day away from finishing. But about 3 days into the antibiotic, my infection bubble went away and I no longer feel that bubble anywhere nor can I see any blood when spitting. So it's been a week since the gum bubble went away, and my dentist said she believe I'm ok now. My question is, is the infection really gone for good? My dentist said I might've need a root canal for that tooth, but now that the bubble is gone, I might not need one?

    So this is a question I've been wondering about for some time. I've used both services about a dozen times each over the last few months now. And from what I can tell, the drivers always deliver or arrive at my location a good 15-30min earlier than the expected delivery time I've chose. Normally, I would order food for delivery to my place at 6:30pm, but I'd get a call from drivers saying they're already at my place by 6:00 or 6:05 (even one time at 5:55pm, woah!). So if I wanted the food to be here by 6:30, I usually has to order my food for delivery at 6:45p at the earliest. Is there a reason why delivery services put orders out to drivers so early? Even with traffic, it shouldn't take more than 10min to get to me anyways (and my food drivers typically only have 1 stop to make).

The dentist felt that I should be given amoxicillin, where I eat 3 pills a day for 10 days. Right now, I'm nearing the end of the 4th day of my prescription. But I started having an odd taste in my mouth after just 2 full days (so 2 days ago) of taking the medication. It tasted like lemon or something sour (doesn't taste bitter, just sour) on the side of my tongue. So after a couple days of the taste, I looked at my tongue and found that the very back of my tongue and the right side of the tongue has some white coating. So I thought maybe it's thrush or some overgrowth of bacteria due to my medication. So my question is...should I keep eating my medications for the remaining 6 days or should I stop and see a local pharmacist?

    So I'm in Vegas, and I took a taxi cab from the airport to my hotel on the Strip. Before coming to Vegas, I looked on Google Maps and got an idea of a couple reasonable routes from the airport to the Bellagio hotel. When I got to the airport, and into the taxi, I noticed that my cab driver was driving a route that's clearly the long way around. It tacked on an unnecessary 6-7min (about an extra $10.20) to the ride. I didn't want to be too harsh about it, so I told the driver I was curious why he didn't drive on the highway we just went past and I noticed he drove a big loop instead. Trying to be subtle about it, I said is it because of traffic or construction? But the cab driver got mad and said he lives in Vegas and he know the route, and told me to "get off my car at the next intersection, I don't like what you're insinuating." Can he do that? Is it reasonable for him to make me get out? I didn't get out of cab, of course, but his taxi company boss got me a full refund after I spoke to him.

It's one of those where you pay an hourly fee, which is slightly cheaper than what the city's curbside parking meters. There was a security/management employee on site to tell drivers where to park. They were the only open parking space within 3 blocks of the place I went to. Anyways, I came back to my car after a few hours and saw that my vehicle was parked in between 2 rows of cars. Meaning there's a car in front and in the back of mine. There were probably only a foot of space between my car and the one on either end. The employee on site said he don't take drivers' keys, do he can't do anything. So I wasn't able to get my car out until I ended up calling a towing service to get the car in front of me to the side so I can drive out (and then drag the other guy's car back to its space). So...why do parking lots do that? Is that method even allowed?

I was told that they've made arrangements for us to get the "Degustation Menu" that night. The menu would be 5 dishes coming out over a span of 40 minutes. And reading some of the reviews for that restaurant, it seems to me that their "tasting" menu are really small...tiny even. The food don't seem to be more than 2 or 3 bites at the most, and I'm a little concerned that even if there's 5 courses, the foods are still very small compared to the dishes themselves. So, does anyone know...for a degustation/tasting menu, are the foods enough to make you feel not hungry? I initially didn't plan to eat lunch that day, thinking it'll make me more hungry for the wedding dinner. But now, I'm not sure if a 5-course tasting menu is enough food (might have to eat lunch after all, haha).

I'm a current college student and need to do a physical and a handful of labworks to get a medical clearance to work for a potential employer (a government agency). I have private health insurance through my own parents, but their health plan doesn't cover much (it's a barebone, very minimum plan)...my parents rarely has to use a doctor or any medical services, so they never felt the need to get better insurance. So since my own insurance will likely not cover much, and I'm also a current student, I can't really afford expensive hospital bills. The labworks and immunizations that I have to get cost over $500 by themselves...and that's not counting the physical and dental stuff the agency want me to do. So am I, who is not a veteran, use a VA hospital/clinic...or do they only serve vets?

    Over the past couple months, we've seen accusations from women coming out against both conservative and liberal politicians. Most of the women who are accusing the officials of misconduct encountered the harassing incidents decades earlier. So my main question is...why did they wait so long to come out (even if the people being accused are politicians with money/power)? And why did they have to wait until it's close to the electoral season to come forward? As a woman myself, and as someone who had encountered similar harassment in the workplace myself in the past, I just don't understand why the wait and why they waited until the election season. I can understand these women's feelings, because when I was in my 20s and just out of law school (early 2000s), I myself got harassed in my very first job (by my CFO no less). In my case, even though the guy was a "boss" of mine at the time, I didn't wait around. I called the company's CEO and my company's head attorney, explained to them I'll go public if they didn't discipline the CFO and I don't care if my harasser is an executive...what he did was inappropriate. I got my CFO suspended without pay and he later went to another company in a lesser position. So I know what it's like having to face an employer who had more money and power than me, but I still spoke out about his actions because I wanted him disciplined. So why did all these women in the news not speak out about their harassment...and only did it on election season?

And the backrest of the chair seemed to be a bit dirty, but nothing that can't be ignored.

Does Amazon fulfill customers' orders from their Return Center a lot? I thought the chair I purchased was new, but the Return Center address and signs of usage somewhat took me back a bit.
