Re: Skype Interview tips

I agree on this. I had a Skype interview I did while staying in a Docklands hotel in London. I just put a shirt on and didn't even tuck it in and had jeans on. During the interview the noise from the...

Re: Car bomb drinks / donuts

Well it's called an Irish Car Bomb in most places I have seen it and involves Irish beer and spirits so I do find it offensive. I recall being out one night and when people heard where I was from...

Re: Buying a car - advice needed please

That sounds like a terrible discount IMO. Admittedly I have only purchased 2 vehicles here but both I negotiated 10% of the sticker price. Also is it really such a good deal? I did a search on Kijiji...

Re: Triazolam - serious questions

I also had benzos before laser eye surgery. I wasn't particularly anxious about it but was casually offered them and thought why the heck not. Super chilled throughout and few hours after.

Re: Help me pick a car please.....

I drive both in winter so feel qualified to say it is not essential to have AWD. A FWD with good snow tires is fine. Saying that - the AWD is the easiest to drive in the conditions so if not...

Re: Help me pick a car please.....

Even if you are only allowed to go 100km some people like getting to 100 faster lol. I do agree that having more power is more fun on the bendy country roads rather than just straight line driving. ...
