Was going to switch to CIBC from Van City since Van City is a little behind the times technology wise, but goodness CIBC doesn't make it easy to open an account. Well the online part was easy, its the you need to go into a branch to show ID to finish part. Their website doesn't let me book an appointment online, I call the branches that are supposed to be open and they don't answer the phone, or they say they are temporarily closed even though the website says they are supposed to be open, the branches I have left messages at don't return my calls.

Then they send me an email near telling reminding me to make an appointment to finish the process, well I have been trying to...ha ha

Maybe its a sign not to have an account with them, if they are making it this difficult to actually open an account, who knows how bad they will be after...ha ha

Inspecting mirrors is a job I could really see myself doing.
I tried working in a muffler factory but that was exhausting.

Someone stole an 800 pound radar camera right off the street. Police are looking for a couple of real big guys.

I slept from like 7pm Sunday to 9am Monday, not sure why I was so tired. I get these days where I just can't stay awake, and sleep for 12 hours.

I swear everyone who cooks in this building sets off the smoke detector in their unit. At least once per day you can hear one going off for 1-2 minutes somewhere in the building.

If there ever is a fire, nobody is going to pay attention til they see smoke or flames because how many alarms go off in this building.

Sounds refreshing ! Sleep is usually a good thing.

Intelcom Express by far worst courier in Canada, they make Purolator look efficient and competent.

If you want to know who loves you more, (your wife or your dog) lock them both in the trunk of the car for a couple of hours then open it up and you'll see which one is glad to see you.
