People Discuss the Businesses They’ll Never Buy From Again

I’ve been wracking my brain trying to think of a business that I felt was so terrible that I’d never go back or spend money on again and I just can’t really think of any.

There are definitely tons of places where I would never spend my money in the first place, but I don’t think I’ve had such a bad experience somewhere that I vowed “never again”…

But these folks sure have…

AskReddit users opened up and revealed the brands, stores, and restaurants that they’ll never spend money on again.

1. Not gonna do that again.


I will NEVER step foot on one of their buses again. Every single time I’ve rode with them, something catastrophic happens.

From buses breaking down to felons getting arrested mid-trip, I think it’s safe to say I’ve had enough.”

2. Sketchy.

“Wells Fargo.

Fake Accounts scandal

Auto Loan insurance scandal

Mortgage Loan scandal #1 (changing customer terms)

Mortgage Loan scandal #2 (2008)

PPP Loan scandal.”

3. Not satisfied.

“Never again restaurant was Jamie Oliver’s Italian.

Bloody awful menu, completely pretentious trite.

I think they all closed down.”

4. The friendly skies.

“Spirit Airlines.

The one time my family has flown Spirit there was a crushed taco salad in the pull-down desk, and the whole plane smelled vaguely like baby powder.”

5. Waste of money.

“Smokey Bones.

I ordered a “loaded nachos” from them recently. It arrived. It was basically a pile of plain corn chips with maybe a tablespoon of cheese sauce.

It included several tiny tablespoon portions of salsa, tomatoes, jalapeños, and sour cream. This was $13.00! Total waste of money.

I will never order from them again!”

6. Avoid at all costs.

“American buffets.

Ryan’s, Golden Corral, Old Country Buffet, etc…

I worked at one. Trust me. Do not.”

7. Brilliant!

“Soon after she left me in 1998, my ex wife wanted to meet for a post mortem conversation. I suggested we meet at Pizzeria Uno.

About 20 minutes into our agonizing conversation, she looked around and said: “Wait. You hate Pizzeria Uno.” I replied: “I sure do. I’m not going to ruin a place that I like with terrible memories. I’m never entering a Pizzeria Uno again.”

And I haven’t.”

8. Best Buy.

“Best Buy. I bought a washer and dryer there, and I paid for installation.

The guy came out, installed them, turned them on, and left. The washer started flooding my laundry room within minutes. I called them back, and they said they couldn’t come back to fix it. They’re just bring me a new washer in a few days.

New washer comes, gets installed, and again the guy leaves (even though I asked him not to). Again, it floods my laundry room. Again, they won’t come back even though it’s just a few minutes later. They said they’d bring a new one in a few days, but I said f*ck it.

I told them to take the washer and dryer back, and I’d purchase them elsewhere. It took them a whole week to come back and get them, and even then only after I threatened to put them outside.

When they finally took them back, I got a refund….of one cent. One. F*cking. Cent. I had to spend hours on the phone with them to get the full refund amount. Then, they didn’t refund me for the hoses (which they took back) and the installation (you know, that flooded my laundry room twice). It was another few hours on the phone to get them to give me that money back too.

Bought a new washer and dryer at Costco later. Came the next day, installed in minutes (for free), and worked great. Was even cheaper than Best Buy.

Seriously, f*ck Best Buy.”

9. Bad experience.

“Long Horn Steak House.

Reason: all but 2 people in our party (of 15 people) got horrid food poisoning. Mine was so bad that I threw out my back from vomiting and retching, and couldn’t take pain medicine without throwing it up.

So I couldn’t sleep because of having intense stomach and back pain that lasted a week.”

10. Not good.

“Skullcandy headphones.

Bought a pair once, they broke, got them replaced, they broke, got them replaced, they broke, gave up.

Didn’t do anything out of the ordinary with them, I’d pull them apart a bit to place them.over my head and SNAP, two pieces…”

11. Stranded.

“Yellow Cab. The driver ran out of gas on Hwy 59 in Houston at 3:00 in the morning which is a major road in a not so good area.

He left my friend and I on the side of the road for an hour while he walked to get gas twice since it still am didn’t start after the first trip. In the midst of all this I called Yellow Cab multiple times asking for another vehicle to pick us up only to be hung up on.

After we finally got to my apartment he requested full payment. I said f*ck you and offered $20 and that was all he was getting. Ended up getting into a massive cussing argument with this guy before he finally took the money and left.

I haven’t, nor will I ever use them again.”

12. Haven’t forgotten.

“Pottery Barn.

My wife was pregnant with our first child, so full nesting mode engaged. We ordered a chair for the kids room/nursery/whatever the f*ck it’s called, a nice glider with an ottoman, perfect, in theory, for 3am feedings. We ordered it at around 5 months out.

Everything was on track until 3 weeks from delivery date. We had called many times to confirm since shipping was delayed, but still on track for the due date. They told us it was now back-ordered for 6 months. These things happen, but there’s no way they found out about a 6 month delay 3 weeks from delivery on a 9 month lead.

It was a sh*t show! My wife, now fully in the grasp of preggers-crazy went ballistic. We got in cancelled and found another one from some similar place (restoration hardware?) it came in time.

Ok, then Pottery Barn’s ottoman shows up! What else came was a charge for the ottoman. Now we start fight 2 so they would refund our money and retrieve the ottoman. Kid turned 2 months old before it got cleared up.

My wife still flips the store off every time we drive by. This was 8 years ago.”

13. That’s pretty gross.

“I ordered a different type of gravy at Cracker Barrel, and they brought it out to me still in a plastic pouch with microwaving instructions on it.

I know things are prepackaged and reheated in a lot of places, but to not even bother dishing it up?”

14. Dude, you’re NOT getting a Dell.

“Dell, for laptops anyway. They have this devious little feature: the charging cable has a thin data wire inside that tells the computer the charger is from Dell.

If you plug in a charger that does not have this, even if the voltage is correct, the computer will throttle the CPU way down by sending false overheating signals, and will only increase the battery charge if the machine is off. To make this way worse, that data pin wears out and breaks very easily, and even if your charger still works, which it often does, it is borderline unusable. Since you can only get a replacement from dell, replacement chargers are unusually expensive.

This “feature” cannot be turned off in any intended way. There is a program you can use to bypass it by disabling the specific type of thermal cpu throttling they use, but that only works on intel cpus.

If you have an amd, tough luck, and even if you dont you shouldn’t have to disable hardware safety features using 3rd party software just to use hardware that is perfectly functional except for one unnecessary part that is designed to break.”

Alright, friends, now we want to hear from you.

In the comments, tell us about the brands, stories, and other things that you’ve vowed to never spend money on again.

We look forward to hearing your stories!

Mechanics Weigh in on the Good and the Bad When It Comes to Car Companies

I finally sold my old car recently and decided to buy a new one.

It was a pretty interesting process and I asked all kinds of friends and family members their opinions about different makes and models.

I finally made an informed decision and it’s all good. BUT, I do wish that I had some mechanic friends out there, because these guys and gals really know their stuff.

Here is some good car advice from folks on AskReddit that could help you out next time you’re looking for a new car.

1. Mini.

“Import mechanic here. STAY AWAY FROM MINI!!

If someone offers to give you one for free, take it and get $100 scrap price for it!”

2. Suzuki.

“Suzuki belongs in the decent brands. Good value for money, cheap to fix, easy to work on, but not as full featured as others.

My wife had a 2011 swift that did 200,000km with zero issues and we now have a Vitara turbo that has been nothing short of fantastic as well, a few of my friends have had swifts that I’ve worked on/services as well and they can take a flogging.”

3. As easy as that.

“Buy a Honda or Toyota or their luxury counterparts, Acura or Lexus.”

4. No issues.

“When I was deployed to Afghanistan we had this little FOB truck that was a right hand drive Diesel Toyota Hilux that we drove for transporting stuff around the base as it was more practical than an MRAP.

We beat the absolute piss out of that thing. We never serviced it and it drove almost exclusively off road or on dirt roads. Didn’t give us so much as a hiccup.”

5. Here’s the deal.

“Avoid chrysler/dodge/jeep/ram like the plague.

Avoid german cars unless you have lots of $$$

After that it gets a little more open for interpretation and depends on what kind of vehicle you are looking for. That said, you can never go wrong choosing a Toyota.”

6. Silverado.

“I’ve seen three silverados in my family go over 350,000 miles.

We even pulled the engine out of a 77 silverado with 377,000 miles that we had and put it in an 85 blazer we rebuilt from the frame up.

Those engines could take a grenade and keep running.”

7. Good quality.

“The majority of my family is mechanics and they always say “never buy a Dodge!” Two work for an auto parts store and says they’re the ones they get the most calls for, about parts and repairs.

My family has VWs and we all love them. The older ones tend to be built better though, but we find they’re good quality.”

8. Bottom of the barrel.

“Fiat/Chrysler is pretty much the bottom of the barrel, with GM not far behind. These brands can be ok if you are trying to get a performance car such as the Charger SRT Hellcat or the C8 Corvette, however for normal cars they are pretty much the worst

European car brand like Mercedes, BMW, and Volkswagen are ok, but expensive to buy and VERY expensive to repair.

Toyota, Honda, and Mazda are all usually pretty good.

Ford is ok as well. Less reliable than the Japanese competitors, but generally cheaper to buy.”

9. Just stay away.

“Stay away from Mini Coopers, Land Rovers, and Lotuses.

Those have to be the WORST for reliability and maintenance.

As for good ones to buy, Ford, Volkswagen, Volvo, Chevrolet, and Toyota are some of the best for maintenance, repairs and reliability.”

10. Interesting…

“Mazdas are above average in reliability and are champions of fuel efficient gasoline engines.

I’ve never met anyone who has one who doesn’t like theirs, and most single daily-driver car people I’ve talked to who’ve owned one have permanently
converted to the brand.”

11. Thanks!

“Buy a Honda or Toyota.

Absolutely never touch anything German beyond a luxury lease from new. If you need a truck to do local heavy load work, buy a Ford.

Long haul towing type work, Cummins Dodge with a stick shift. That’s about it.”



My dad was a mechanic for 30 years. Mostly BMW He was an ASE master tech. The dealership he worked for also owned a Toyota dealer.

The year before he retired he got me, my sister, and my mother a heavily discounted Toyota corolla because quote “he never wanted to fix a car again”.

They run forever, have long warranties, and are cheap to fix. Yes they’re boring… But they run forever.”

13. Good points.

“I will preface this with all manufacturers make bad models. There are always lemons and there is always those few cars that make it 500,000 miles because everyone on the assembly line was sober that day. Also, even the best built car can be made unreliable if basic maintenance is ignored.

Import cars like Mercs, Audi, Land Rover, BMW, etc. They are great to drive and are awesome so long as you are leasing them. If they break, it is someone else’s problem and I assure you it generally will be an expensive problem. European cars are a very different school of thought from design to assembly to repair.

Hell, BMW has a few models with alternators that are cooled with engine coolant that is as hot as the engine. The VW beetle requires you to basically pull the front bumper off for an alternator replacement.

The Mini (a rebadged BMW) is 10 gallons of crap in a 5 gallon pail. It is hard to work on, expensive to repair, and completely designed with input from Satan himself.

For US, as much as they can be called US, domestic brands to definitely avoid in my book is Dodge, Jeep, Chrysler. The parent company has been bought and sold more than a prostitute. I think Fiat owns them this week.

The QC is lacking and automatic transmission issues abound (The RAM trucks come to mind), electrical issues(generally body control modules), and engine longevity have been and continue to remain an issue. The reliability that they may have had in the 90’s and early 2000’s is a distant memory.

Chevy isn’t doing so great and neither is Ford. Everyone’s stuff is getting more difficult to work on and requiring more and more special tools and software.

Nissans have been going downhill but the CVT transmission is problematic.

Subaru is kind of in between like/dislike for me. The boxer engine is nice but overhauling it can be a bit cramped. The good news it that they made it relatively easy to remove/install.

If you want to look at reliable manufacturers I would argue for Japanese and Korean vehicles. Kia is getting good, though sometimes the replacement parts cost can be a bit expensive. Hyundai has gotten much better. Toyota is pretty solid although the initial cost is higher. Honda is pretty solid too.”

14. FYI.

“Worked at a dealership for 10 years, only cars I ever seen with 400,000+ miles were mid 90s Honda civics, seen a GMC diesel truck with like 379,000 miles one time, and everyone in shop was amazed at that, but everything else was max 250,000 or so.”

How about you?

Do you have any good advice you can give us about cars?

If so, please share it with us in the comments. Thanks!

People Discuss the Really Bad Financial Decisions They Seen Folks Make

It’s really hard to see people go through very difficult times because of bad financial decisions that they’ve made in their lives.

And, as you probably know, it happens to quite a few people.

So what’s the worst financial decision you’ve seen someone make?

Let’s check out some interesting stories from folks on AskReddit.

1. Irresponsible.

“People who make over $250k (sometimes WELL over), no withholding, not paying estimated taxes throughout the year, can’t afford the tax bill with the return EVERY YEAR, then b*tching because they can’t afford the installment payments on the taxes they owe from two years ago.

Motherfu*ker, sell your gaudy McMansion, take your teenage daughter’s credit card away, let your drunk driving son stay in jail and get a public defender, and tell your wife to stop spending all day at the tennis courts sipping mimosas.

Get your sh*t together and pay taxes throughout the year like the rest of us. You aren’t being persecuted by the IRS, you’re just an idiot.”

2. Sad.

“I work for a bank.

One of our branches had a customer who was basically homeless. Then, he wins the lottery! Over the next few months, the staff watched him come in to withdraw thousands of dollars every day to spend on extravagances.

Everyone tried to convince him to sit with a financial advisor to help him make the most of his money. Less than a year later, he’s in slightly better shape than when he started; he’s at least able to live in the car he bought.”

3. Yowza.

“I’ve had a client where I noticed this guy’s credit debt always remained hovering $13k to $15k.

I asked him why he only makes minimum payments on his credit card instead of paying it off, because I see he has roughly $11k sitting in a bank account. Interest per month on that credit card bill is roughly $250, and according to his repayment patterns it will take him roughly 19 years to pay it all off.

His answer to me is the bank charges him $7.99 per month for his bank account if his balance dips below $10k… So to save the $7.99 per month this guy is paying $250 in interest on his credit card.”

4. Do your research.

“What I’ve seen, countless times, is someone who started a business with ZERO research, no understanding of what running a business involves. (Here’s a hint: practically every business involves paperwork and deadlines.).

The business models come in waves… for awhile it was Barbecue shacks, then it was cupcakes, then house flippers, then food trucks. I think they see it being done on TV shows that make it look fun. It isn’t fun when they come to me with debt, tax levies and lawsuits.

IRS and state labor department and health department on their backs, and suppliers taking them to court for unpaid bills. Some of them cashed out their retirement account to buy a business; others put their house up as collateral for an SBA loan. it’s a nightmare.

If they had come to an accountant first, we might be able to help them (or even better, dissuade then). I usually see them after 18-24 months of screwups and by then it’s usually too late to rescue them.”

5. Uh oh.

“An older gentleman came in worrying about a ton of overdraft fees on his 18 year old sons account. The fees added up to a hefty amount and he was worried that the charges were fraudulent.

Upon looking at the account history, every recent purchase was to OnlyFans. The fees were happily waived and no detail was given as to what OnlyFans is, as the kids old man clearly didn’t know.

I think about that kid often. I wonder how he’s doing.”

6. Car problems.

“Claims Adjuster here, and I see it happen all too often – trading in vehicles with negative equity.

Why? Why can’t you be financially responsible and pay off your vehicle instead of rolling the leftover loan onto that new shiny machine you just can’t resist, and rinse/repeat a couple of years later. Your loan is just getting bigger and bigger.

I had one client (recent, otherwise I had more than that) – who totaled his vehicle. He blew pass a stop sign and collided with another vehicle. Guess what friend, out of that $70,000 you still owe to the bank because you’ve traded in 4,5 vehicles over the years – we are only covering you for what your current vehicle is worth today, around $25,000 or whatever it was – depreciation applies unless you have the proper endorsement in place. That means you will be paying the bank for the leftover loans of some vehicles, none of which you own.

Own one vehicle, one loan – if you ever totaled your vehicle, insurance will provide you enough to cover the loan. If it doesn’t quite cover it because of high interest, it sure as hell isn’t a $45k loan left.”

7. Bummer.

“I had my former boss decide it was a great idea to buy land in Texas, our company was based in PA, in the middle of nowhere because he talked to another business owner who told him it was going to take off.

Myself and my co-worker advised against it but things were slow and he didn’t listen. At first it was going to be a place of operations but then he decided we would just rent out rooms to the people who worked down there in the oil industry. Dumped loads of money, time, and blood, sweat, and tears into it for it to just go bust not even a year later.”

8. Play nice.

“Worked in a family law firm.

Way too common of an occurrence is a client ignoring the lawyers advice for a balanced separation agreement and instead ambushing their spouse with an agreement that says they are getting everything.

Now instead of a relatively amicable breakup and maybe some mediation to sort out some sticking points it’s tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in litigation costs.

If you are going through a divorce play nice. The only ones that win in a bad divorce are the lawyers.”

9. Hmmmm…

“I audit larger companies so I don’t work with individuals. However, my friend’s dad mentioned that he pays 3.5% annually in advisor fees to his financial advisor, and that’s not even including the fees that the mutual funds he’s invested in are charging him.

So annually, he’s paying out in the ballpark of 4.5% of his portfolio. That’s right, every freaking year. I tried to explain to him that these fees are potentially costing him millions more than a reasonably priced advisor who recommends low-cost mutual funds would charge him throughout a life time. He just kind of shrugged and told me that he felt comfortable with the guy.”

10. Time to mitigate the damage.

“A 94 year old woman withdrew a $540,000 annuity that she THOUGHT was a TAX FREE life insurance policy. She owed the IRS over $90,000 and the State of Michigan $14,000.

When I explained it was an annuity and not a life insurance policy she panicked. What was done was done and we just had to mitigate the damage.”

11. That’s not good.

“The parents of a young woman bought her a condo. They paid cash so she wouldn’t have a mortgage. She sold it so she’d have party money.

Not only did she no longer have a place to live, she owed taxes on the gain. But she’d already spent the proceeds so didn’t have money to pay the taxes.

Oh, and she didn’t have a job because it would interfere with her partying schedule.”

12. Family drama.

“Grandma pulls 50k to help grandson pay off college debt. He blows all the money, steals another 10k from her.

She won’t file police report because “they are family”, daughter steps in, grandma is furious with daughter for telling police what happened. Grandma takes daughter off as beneficiary, replaces her with grandson.”

13. “Still haunts me…”

“I’ve seen plenty that made me cringe, but the worst one wasn’t because there was a lot of money involved.

So I’m working at this bank branch years ago, I was tired of being stuck in the drive thru so I made a lateral move to be a floating teller among other things. But occasionally I’d have to fill in at the old branch, which sucked because the manager there hated me.

Anyway, during my time there I became acquainted with an older gentleman, he was a world War II vet and was always wearing his navy vet cap. I talked to him every time I saw him and he was always really nice, had a great sense of humor, and even in old age he was still mentally sharp.

So this one day I’m filling in at the branch covering for the new accounts person. This guy walks in and I immediately knew something was off. I greeted him and asked how I could help him, and what he said broke my heart. He told me that he wanted his daughter off of his account, that she had been taking advantage of him and his money was being wasted.

I did my due diligence and brought up some history and asked him about specific charges, I remember there were a bunch for a couple of salons, so clearly those weren’t his transactions. The last few times I had seen him, there was a younger woman with him that I hadn’t seen before, and he was pulling out cash and giving it to her.

It dawned on me that each time I had seen him, he was there with someone else that did all his stuff for him, and that this time he had come in alone, which never happened.

So while looking at his account I noticed that his daughter is an owner on the account, meaning he can’t just remove her, she has to consent to it. When I asked him if he thought she would agree to that, he said no and started crying.

Normally we weren’t supposed to keep pushing a situation like this, but I really wanted to help him. I told him I couldn’t get her off the account, but I could open him a new one where he would be the only one on it, and then we could transfer the money over.

I could tell he was relieved when I said that to him, so after a few minutes I took care of everything for him. I specifically remember that after I finished, I gave him my business card, and told him that if he had any issues he could call me. A few minutes later he left happy, and I briefed the manager on what had happened.

A day or two later I’m working at another location when I get a call on my cell from my boss, she asked me if I had helped an older gentleman with his account when I was at my old branch. It turns out that after I had helped him, his “daughter” had tried to use the account to pay for more of the sh*t she was wasting his money on, and the card was declined.

She had gone into the branch and raised hell, screaming at the employees there and demanding they bring her the person responsible. The business card that I had given the man didn’t have my direct number on it, the number went to my boss. She had screamed at my boss and demanded that I be fired for what I had done.

My boss as well as the branch manager that hated my guts had both defended me and neither of them would give in to her demands. But I found out later on the next time I saw my boss, she had forced the old man to either move all the money back to the old account or to make her an owner on the new one. When anyone asked her about the situation, she just claimed that he had dementia and didn’t know what he was doing.

I honestly hope she was telling the truth, but I never saw that man again, and had moved into another role and then to a different company not long after. I went to anyone that would listen about what happened, but no one could do anything because elder abuse is so difficult to prove.

The whole thing still haunts me, I saw an old man asking me for help and did the best I could for him. In the end he either made the decision to keep her around or was forced to, and I worry I just made things worse for him.”

14. Wow.

“My brother had a long standing client of around 10 years get married after only knowing a woman for 12 months. He was almost 55, she was in her early 30s.

55 y.o. man wanted to add her as a signatory on his retirement account. Basically giving her 100% power over the account. A quick soft credit check showed she was not good with money. My brother offered up many different options as to how to give her access to the money but with limitations. He even straight up refused to do it, saying that he needed to think about it for a few days.

The guy came back in the next morning saying he would file a complaint against him if he didn’t set it up. My brother said that he would need to get the documents notarized, and sign a waiver that this is against the institutions advice.

The guy comes back in later that day and finalizes the deal.

You can guess what happened within about 6 months.

The account had around 600k in it to begin with, and she had managed to run off with about 65k before the account was frozen by my brother for review of withdrawls.

The man was p*ssed and tried to lawyer up twice. Neither time did it even go to court.

His advice is that if you are married and have investment accounts, just keep them separate unless you REALLY have a reason to give them access. You can totally notify the agency about your marriage, and sometimes in certain situations the spouse can get limited info confirmed for medical bills and such.”

How about you?

Mechanics Talk About Which Car Companies to Avoid and Which Ones to Look Into

Buying a new car (or a used one that’s new to you) is a very complicated process.

You have your personal opinions about what makes and models you like and no matter how much research you do, you’re gonna find conflicting information about everything.

That’s why we’re in luck today! Because we’re gonna hear from people who work on cars for a living about what we should be looking for when we look for a new ride.

Let’s get educated by folks on AskReddit users.

1. Piece of mind.

“My honest answer is that any car is good only thing you have to respect is your wallet. For example you buy a used Echo for 2k you know every part on an Echo is a bargain even a used engine/transmission. So you can have a certain Piece of Mind

Now problem is with cars that seem “Not High Maintenance” but are actually super high maintenance cars such as the Toyota Prius/Mini Coopers/fiats/Smarts and or any Hybrid/Electric because they’re sold as low maintenance reliable cars but parts on those are extremely expensive. Buying those cars 2nd hand is close to insanity.

Another quote told by a 30 Year mechanic. If you don’t have money for the new car you have less for the older car. Cars lose value, parts don’t and in some cases even gain value.”

2. Commuter cars.

“My dad is an auto mechanic and advocates Toyotas and Hondas for your standard commuter.

We took great care of my 97’ Camry, ran her up to 380,000 miles and still sold for $1,700 due to good maintenance and upkeep.”

3. Truck talk.

“For trucks and SUVs I’dd say go with ford though the Tacoma is on par with the ford ranger. The worst car ive ever seen is a fiat or mini vehicle. This includes anything made by fiat. Like dodge Chrysler and jeep for example.

If you want a good car go with Toyota or Honda. Chevy has been going downhill in the truck department for awhile but their traverse is a decent vehicle. Ford cars suck royally this includes their mustangs.

While car companies vary widely in dependability and efficiency the main factor to a car lasting is taking care of it but, even then its not a guarantee that some vehicles will last.”

4. Something to think about…

“I have 235,000 miles on my 2003 Hyundai Elantra so far.

It’s starting to rust and I’ve replaced the clutch three times, but I still get 30 mpg on the highway.”

5. What to avoid.

“Avoid Jeep/Dodge/Chrysler, Land Rover, Mini, BMW, Mercedes.

Hit and Miss: Ford, Chevy

Solid, Toyota, Subaru (although if buying used ask about the head gasket they do go bad), Nissan is usually good too.”

6. Dad’s opinion.

“My dad was a good hobby mechanic, as well as a race car driver, and the only company he DESPISED was Fiat.

He loved Mazda, and would drive one whenever he had the choice.”

7. Can’t go wrong.

“I’m a mechanic and I’ll drive anything. You can’t go wrong with a Toyota or a Honda, boring as hell but they’ll run forever. I always tell people to look into repair costs and service fees.

Anything uncommon like rear engine or really tiny cars are probably going to be expensive to repair like the mini also sold by BMW and that stands for “bring money with you”.”

8. Straight shooter.

“Stay away from the Nissan Rogue, Murano and Kicks. All of them are hot garbage. The CVTs on those are unreliable, needs constant maintenance, and even with maintenance it will die on you when you need it the most. F*ck Nissan!

Also run from any Jeep. Jeeps are worst than the Nissan Rogue. Parts are expensive, and it will be always at the shop, always. Even brand new! Dont fall for “Wranglers are the best”. All Jeeps are bad. Youve been warned!

Finally, dont get any BMW. Yeah youll find some very cheap and from recent years, there is a reason for that.

Need something cheap and reliable? Get a Kia Rio or Forte

Need something more fancy and reliable? Toyota all the way.”

9. Short and sweet.

“Unless it’s a division or exact company of Toyota, Honda, Mazda or Ford. Stay the hell away from it.

You’re asking for nothing but problems.”

10. Rolling into the shop.

“A few of my good friends are mechanics.

The vehicles that roll into the shop the least: Nissan and Toyota. Toyotas will rust to sh*t fairly quickly, but they’ll stay intact mechanically. Nissan are the best currently, I guess.

The ones they see the most are Ford and GM, as well as pretty much anything from Europe.”

11. Nuts and bolts.

“They’re all nuts and bolts. And they all break eventually.

As far as repairs. Anything German is probably gonna be your most expensive. Followed by Chrysler/fiat. And Toyota. Toyota has a reputation of being reliable but that’s mostly because people in my experience who have Toyota’s tend to maintain them.

I’ve worked as a mechanic in a lot of different dealerships. KIA/Hyundai have a reputation of being unreliable but also look at the demographics they cater to. They typically don’t do a lot of maintenance. Land Rover has a bad reputation of being unreliable too.”

12. Expensive.

“Jaguars are notoriously unreliable mechanically, but I guess if you can afford a Jag you don’t really care about how much you have to pay your garage.”

13. Good advice.

“Toyotas are awesome- but keep is to the cars, not the suvs or trucks so much except those older trucks with lwtters and numbers for names. Good stuff. A toyota avalon from the early 2000s will last a lifeime with basic maintinence.

A corolla or camry is economical AF, but some were built annoyingly so you habe to drop half the front wnd to replace certain engine parts.

Homda accord is a lifeline until it rusts out from underneath you, starting at the rear wheel wells.

The 1990-95ford escorts had a joint thing with Mazda, so their engines are practically bulletproof. Hold onto thwm.

Jeeps ARE trash EXCEPT the inline 6 4.0 motors. Worth fixing but watch out for a cracked block. Resellers can hide them.

Dodges are pretty bogus except the magnum motors. I have a 6cyl 3.9 that is no slouch and headed to 300k.

The single best motor you can get is a a straight 6 out of old nissans … Think they are called Jz2fe or something like that. They are the perfect engines. If you find one in a junkyard, grab it. Dont pass it up. …”

14. High praise.

“My first car was a Honda accord with 120k miles that I bought from my uncle who bought it from my other uncle who bought it brand new.

That f*cking car, in 6 months, had the distributor cap blow up, needed a new windshield, and about 6 other expensive things before blowing a god d*mn head gasket on my way to work one morning. After that I financed the most reliable seeming car I could afford–a Mazda protégé.

Holy f*ck did I love that car and did it love me. I moved to a city where I didn’t need a car, so I sold it to a friend who got several thousand miles out of her and made a tribute on Facebook after she died. I’ve since moved back to a car-driving city.

Bought two more mazdas and loved the sh*t out of both. I’ve driven every vehicle you can imagine, from a 40s international truck to a ’92 3/4 ton chevy to my partner’s lifted Tacoma to a yaris to a 90s altima. I currently drive a Mazda3 and will honestly never buy anything else for a daily driver until the day they stop making manuals.

The single most underrated cars out there as far as I’m concerned.”

People Discuss the Worst Financial Decisions They’ve Ever Seen

Have you ever made a terrible financial decision that affected your life in an extremely negative way?

Unfortunately, this happens to a lot of good folks out there who made a bad money decision for one reason or another…and the aftermath can be pretty ugly.

Here are some stories about really bad financial decisions from people on AskReddit.

1. You gotta pay your taxes.

“Had a client who was extremely wealthy about eight years ago tell us he was no longer going to use our services. Last year we get an extremely angry phone call from his wife asking us why we haven’t been filing their taxes.

We showed her the paperwork where her husband said he was no longer going to use our services. And then sh*t hit the fan. This dude apparently just decided he wasn’t going to pay taxes anymore and didn’t file a return for eight years and had been lying to his wife.

They were rich and owed almost 1.4 million dollars in taxes not including interest and penalties. And oh yeah they got absolutely fried by the IRS. If you are in a relationship with someone you need to be involved in financial decisions.

Never let one party handle all of the money and make all of the decisions. That is how bad things happen in both business and in relationships.”

2. Start-up.

“Saw a guy invest about 600k in a start-up. He confirmed in the 1.5 pages agreement that he was fully informed about everything going on.

Please if you invest in that size, ask a lawyer to at least review the agreement.”

3. Didn’t take your advice.

“I had one client that had the money to pay for his kids college without taking out any loans. Instead, he decided to take out a loan on his house to pay for college in order to claim a deduction on his tax return.

When I explained to him that the benefits he’ll get from claiming the interest deduction on his return would not outweigh the amount he spends on interest he was certain I was wrong, even after I showed him the total amount of interest he’d pay and compared that to the expected tax benefit he’d receive for it.”

4. Big winner.

“I had 1 client that won the lottery. It was a $10,000/month annuity FOR LIFE, give or take. Pretty sweet deal, right?

Well, he never went and claimed the prize because he didn’t want to pay the taxes. I told him f*ck the taxes, he can retire and never work another day in his life while still earning $120k/year. Nope, he’d have to pay the taxes so he didn’t go claim the prize. I think he even threw the ticket out.

Dude makes like $60k/year and he turned down the lotto winnings. Like, if you’re not going to claim the winnings because you’re THAT against paying any sort of taxes why bother playing the lottery at all?”

5. A bad move.

“I had a client in her 70s put her whole savings in Tilray stock.

At the time it was trading above 150 per share. I told her it was a terrible idea to put all of her savings in one investment but she told me I was wrong. She argued with me for a good 15 minutes until I relented and said okay, it’s your money. So she put 300k in.

Couple weeks later it starts dropping, I call her and get no answer. It’s sitting at 6 dollars a share now, her account is down to about 12k. Last time I spoke with her I took no pleasure in telling her she’s no longer my client.”

6. He was warned…

“A client who tried to time the market with the coronavirus drop back in March.

He was 55 and had a 7 figure amount in his 401(k) and was 90:10 equity:bonds. His plan was to time the market by shifting his entire allocation to a money market/ bonds, wait for the market to drop more, and then shift back into equity.

This was at the end of March. I tried to warn him. He didn’t answer my subsequent calls.”

7. Credit card hell.

“I’ve had SO MANY people with credit card debt who talk about investing/ saving for a big purchase, but they have 5 figures of 20%+ credit card debt. “I’d rather focus on investments for this call” well you’re gonna get 10% in the market if its a decent year and you’re paying 26% in interest so you’re losing money.

You have a 50% debt to income ratio, you can’t get a mortgage. Yes, I know the kids really wanted a pool this year, but you have $50,000 of CC debt to pay down before it makes sense for you to start saving for their college. 90% of the time they seem irritated and ghost me because I don’t have some magic solution to make their credit card debt disappear.”

8. No understanding.

“I had a client who wanted to know how to give away her 401k because her and her husband’s pensions were already enough for their lifestyle and she didn’t want to be in a higher tax bracket.

She was in her 60s, worth millions, and did not understand how marginal tax brackets work. Or even basic math. She wasn’t looking to get a deduction through gifting stock.

She (clearly) was nowhere near that level of understanding taxes. She just spent her entire life working hard and being extremely frugal, which led to her being a millionaire who lacked a basic understanding of money. Not really a bad decision but I found it really interesting.”

9. A scam.

“Former manager at a credit union.

One seemingly smart lady in her 70s got one of those lottery scam letters saying she won, but needed to send them money to process her winnings. They kept getting her to send more and more money. We were telling her it was a scam from day 1, but we couldn’t stop her.

She burned through her IRA which had about 200k. Took out a loan against her paid off house for another 200k. Sold her jewelry. Probably paid out 500k total before finally realizing.

We truly did everything we could. Got her family involved. Several of us would confront her every time she came in and would plead with her to stop.

It was sad but at some point you have to cut your losses and realize it’s a scam.”

10. Listen to your accountants, people.

“Best friend is a CPA, and when he had his own practice, he had some pretty big-name clients (Senators, musicians, pro athletes, etc.)

One of the biggest mistakes people made were thinking they were smarter than an accountant. His biggest challenge were the people who heard about the “sovereign citizen” nonsense. To no one’s surprise, a random guy on YouTube doesn’t know more than an actual CPA with 40+ years experience.

At least a few of these new-found “sovereign citizens” ended up doing time for tax evasion.”

11. Lost everything.

“Watched a client walk out of my office after I explained the risk in liquidating his 401K to start his own business.

He started it with no management experience or business model, real “fly by the seat of his pants” kinda guy. Wanted to start a career flipping houses in a college town, turn them into upscale rentals. Did it in a bad neighborhood and lost EVERYTHING.”

12. Gold coins.

“I had a client Buy numismatic gold coins with an entire retirement account. She bought 266k worth of coins at almost double the price of bullion.

I got the gold salesman on the phone and asked him to justify the reasoning and I he said it was because the dollar was paper money and worth nothing and that gold was going to go to 10000 a coin. I asked him what he exchanged this gold for and he said “well she paid me dollars”.

Then I said “why would you accept a worthless currency for your rapidly appreciating gold currency?” He cursed at me and hung up and said I didn’t know what I was talking about.

I still haven’t met a gold salesman that can answer this. Their whole pitch is that the dollar isn’t worth anything but they happily take them in exchange for gold coins. The whole thing is sh*t. Poor lady. She can’t sell them now even with gold bullion as high as it is for anything close to what she bought them for.”

13. A shame.

“Former bank teller here.

Had an older gentleman who would typically only come in once a month and pull out a few hundred dollars for living expenses, nice old guy btw. One month he comes in twice in two weeks and pulls out $5k which was bizarre for him. When he came in the third week in a row I planned on asking him if he was remodeling his home or something but I didn’t have to.

He came in to get another $5k out and told me he had won the lottery but had to pay the taxes on his winnings, some of you already know what’s going on. He had received a letter that he won around $3mil from the Kentucky state lotto, we were in Florida, but before he could claim it he had to pay the taxes on it. His account was setup that you could only withdraw $5k a week hence him coming every week.

I tried to explain to him that he was being scammed and to stop sending them money. He was no longer a nice old man when I said that. He accused me of being jealous of his winnings and that “he’d show me” when he deposited his millions in a different bank, then he left. I talked to my manager who then talked to the cops and they said there wasn’t much they could do since it was out of state.

His family even contacted us and begged us not to give him anymore of his money when they found out what was going on, which we cannot legally do. The only thing we could do was close his account because we didn’t want to have any responsibility in his downfall. He came in the following week, manager explained what was going to happen, and he left with a cashier’s check after quite a few more expletives.

Found out a few months after that the scammers got another $50k out of him before his family was able to get power of attorney and control over his finances. Not sure what happened to him after that but it’s a d*mn shame.”

This Man Made Sure No One Would Ever Ask Him to Bring Donuts to the Office Again

We’ve all been the new person at some point – at the office, at school, at church – and when people tell you how things are, or what’s normal, you kind of feel as if you have to go along with it.

In this guy’s office, it was that the new guy buys donuts. And while he considered just going along with it, he found that he just couldn’t.

Let’s get into one man’s journey to be the most hated man ever in any office setting!

Image Credit: Reddit

He didn’t want to be a bad sport, but he was hired as a manager for many of the people being pushy, and they were starting to piss him off.

He brought donuts…if you consider those little dry powdered things at the grocery store donuts.

Yeah, me neither.

Image Credit: Reddit

He handed them out, one-by-one, with his bare hands – because he’s clearly a hero.

Then it came time to hand donuts to the worst two offenders.

And yeah, things did NOT go well.

Image Credit: Reddit

He cut the last donut in half, and slid them onto his middle fingers to deliver them to the last – and worst – of the bunch.

Because he’s a psychopath!

Image Credit: Reddit

Neither one of them knew what to say.

I mean, imagine this happening to you…

Image Credit: Reddit

Frightening to respect for the rest of his time there, I’m sure.

Image Credit: Reddit

Well… bravo… I think. How hard would it have been to just BUY the people you’re managing donuts, you sociopath.

Definitely try this at home if you, too, wish to get out of donut duty for all eternity…. and hated by everybody in the office.

What Would You Still Refuse to Buy if You Were Filthy Rich? Here’s What People Said.

This should be interesting

A lot of us daydream about what we’d do and what we’d buy if we had unlimited funds. But on the flip side, it’s also fun to think about what we would definitely NOT buy if we had a boatload of cash.

For me, I’d have to say it would be fancy cars. I just don’t think it’s something I could ever get into…but that’s just me.

What would you still refuse to buy if you were rich?

Let’s see what AskReddit users had to say about this.

1. Don’t even bother.

“Expensive cat toys.

My cat will continue to play with my phone charger.”

2. You don’t need it.

“A big house.

Though I’d probably build a really luxurious small one.”

3. Not gonna happen.

“Stadium foods like $10 bags of popcorn.

It’s just the principle.”

4. Terrible idea.


Easiest way to stop being filthy rich and become lifeless in the process..”

5. No thank you!

“Diamond-encrusted anything.

I don’t like glittery things and it just looks uncomfortable and heavy.”

6. Nope.

“Water in bottles.

In my country the tap water is 100% safe to drink. So buying water in bottles would be a waste of money, time and resources.

Change my mind…”

7. Enough of that.

“Anything from Walmart.

I’d love to be so rich that I wouldn’t have to step into a Walmart again.”

8. Smart.

“Bags for bathroom trash cans.

That’s what plastic grocery bags are for.

Even in CA, where we’re not supposed to have plastic grocery bags, they have made a comeback during COVID.”

9. The high seas.

“You will never see me booking a cruise no matter how much money I have.

There are endless other places I’d rather spend my vacations.”

10. Doesn’t need to be new.

“A new car.

I would just let other rich people buy theirs new and drive it for a year before they get bored of it and buy a new one.

There are plenty of great vehicles on the market simply because some people can afford to view their transportation as a status symbol.”

11. Art stuff.

“Overpriced paintings.

Like yeah, spending a few grand to get an incredible landscape by an artist makes sense.

Spending 2 million on some modern art bullsh*t or splatter painting does not. Sh*t’s just stupid. I will never understand this.

Now I’m sure some of this is money laundering but it can’t all be money laundering, right?”

12. Flashy.

“Personalized license plates.

Might as well wear a t-shirt saying “I’m a pr*ck”.”

13. Do it yourself.

“An oil change, basic service on my car including brakes.

I’ve always done it myself and that wouldn’t change.”

14. Imagine that.

“One of those brides that you order.

I know that they do it out of free will, but I just don’t want that.

I want to actually, like, meet my wife, and get to know her.”

15. Really?

“Meals outside.

At any fast food joint, any restaurant, any bar, etc.

Just no.”

16. Here’s the list.

“Apple products (there are superior products for cheaper).

Extremely overpriced food items like “gold hamburger” where theres gold flakes on it, adds nothing to the taste and is a waste of money and gold.

I would never buy diamonds, they’re only expensive due to limits on export and importing.”

17. Not flashy.

“Overpriced cars and clothes.

I wanna be rich but not in a in your face way. I wanna be rich but you don’t think I’m rich. A nice-ish house? Yes. A decent car? Yes. Designer and Tesla? Nah.

I just wanna take care of me, my girlfriend, and any potential children I have or adopt.”

How about you?

If you were flush with cash, what would you STILL refuse to buy?

People Who Stuck It to Their Boss – but Still Kept Their Jobs

Unless you work for yourself, chances are that at some point, you’re going to run up against a boss who is kind of bad. The ones who are sticklers for the rules, who apply them without stopping to think about why, or who they’re helping, and honestly? They make going to work every day a slog.

May I recommend that, like these 14 people, you put on your creative cap and figure out how to get that boss’s goat without breaking any rules at all.

14. Being reasonable usually works.

On the flip side, I’m the boss enforcing policy: When I took over the department, the old boss told me that the reason the place looked like crap was because when he asked a sales associate (base pay + commission) to clean or put up stock, they claimed it wasn’t in their job description. The main boss backed them up, calling it a technicality.

I pulled out the description and read out “Other duties as assigned by the Manager” on the last line. Two out of nine quit. My department is now clean and stock is always up. Sales are consistently up. I’m cool with that.

13. Good on her for fighting back.

I used to work at a lingerie store as an assistant manager so I had to dress nice and look professional. All the other girls wore huge heels and always ended up complaining about how sore their feet were at the end of their shift and I always wore flats to avoid having sore feet.

They were still nice, stylish shoes, but they didn’t have towering heels on them. My manager always used to get mad at me for not wearing heels and tried to claim it was part of the dress code. I looked it up and showed her that it didn’t say anywhere that I had to wear heels, just that I had to wear acceptable work attire or something like that and she tried to tell me it was an out of date dress code or something so I would tell her that she should get an updated one then.

Eventually, she brought head office into the argument and the provincial manager was trying to tell me to wear heels to work. I told them they would have to pay me more than minimum wage to ruin my feet. I did not get a raise and no one ever told me to wear heels to work again.

12. Next time, specify a color.

I work at Panera, and we were recently told we had to get non-slip/slip-resistant shoes, else risk being fired.

Rather than buying the ugly black kind all of my coworkers got, I got a bright purple pair of Doc Martens. All of the managers gave me a “ಠ_ಠ are those slip-resistant?”

You bet, motherf*ckers.

11. There’s a feather in your cap.

At my old school, they had rules about hair length (guys), and our teacher got anal about it. The only actual rules were that they couldn’t pass our eyebrows or collar-area.

Being the witty douchebag I am, I used a shit ton of gel to slick up my hair and do obnoxious things with it. It was all raised, so it never crossed my eyebrows or collar.

I got away with it for 2 months, until the principal changed the rules! All just for me 😀

10. A wholesome tale.

My buddy and I came into the office, last day on the job.

We found there was no clause against taking the boxes from the shipping dept and turning them into armor, The Box Knights were born and died on that day.

No door was safe from our attacks.

9. I love her and her knee socks.

I used to work at the Jaws ride at Universal Studios Florida. Our uniform consisted of a blue t-shirt, jeans or jean shorts, white socks, and white shoes. The “unofficial” dress code had all of us girls wearing jean shorts and white knee socks.

One summer, I ended up working the Jaws ride and The Jungle Cruise at Walt Disney World simultaneously. I love Disney, and had always wanted to work there, but I ended up finding it stifling, with all sorts of silly and over the top rules.

At the Jungle Cruise, you wear a khaki shirt, khaki shorts or pants, white socks, and brown shoes. One day, I didn’t have any normal sized socks to wear to the Jungle Cruise, so I ended up wearing my white knee-highs, which looked RIDICULOUS with the Jungle costume. When I got to work, one of my managers flipped his shit, told me my socks weren’t in compliance with “The Disney Look” (the official policies on how to dress at Disney) and made me roll my socks down. It looked like I was wearing little white life preservers around my ankles, and looked more out of place than they looked originally.

I was annoyed, so when I went home, I scoured my Disney Look booklet for the policies pertaining to socks. All I could find was that socks had to be long enough to cover the ankle bone. There was no maximum height. Hell, I could have worn white tights under my khaki shorts if I really wanted to.

The next day, I wore my knee-highs again, as a small act of rebellion. The same manager was there, and he flipped out. He actually pulled me into the office to write me up, but before he could get me to sign the paperwork, I pulled out my copy of The Disney Look and showed him that, while incredibly silly looking, my socks were perfectly acceptable, and that I would continue wearing them like that.

And so I did. I looked stupid, but I didn’t care. Working for Disney wasn’t a pleasant experience in my opinion, and it was very liberating to know that I could at least wear my socks however the hell I wanted to.

8. People latch onto the strangest things.

I worked at a Petsmart 5 or so years ago, in the “Pet Hotel” where animals were boarded while their “Pet Parents” (owners) went on vacation. Everything I did was in the back. No customers ever saw me. Just the dogs and kitties.

But my bitch boss would always get onto me for forgetting my belt. So one day she was particularly mad at me about not having a belt despite the fact that I was picking that shift up last minute for someone who was sick.

I pick up a dog leash, put it through my belt loops, and say “Well, it appears I now have a belt.”

7. And everyone just shook their heads.

Working at Big 5 there was a policy that men had to be clean shaven or have a mustache; no beards or goatees or star-burns.

I can NOT wear a mustache without looking like either a pedophile or an 80’s porn star, but I hate shaving every day.

So I grew out the biggest, creepiest Hulk Hogan stache ever witnessed and wore it proudly for the entire time I worked there.

6. Maybe don’t try this in the military.

In the Navy you must always have a white t-shirt under your uniform. I had a Senior Chief who constantly checked if your t-shirt was not visible and required that it bee seen. I checked the uniform regs and found that while in a working uniform you can wear a V-neck tee.

Started wearing them and he took notice as soon as he saw me. I told him that the regs allowed it. He scowled and his only comment was, “One for the blue shirts” and walked away.

Then he hammered me for every reg violation he could find. Smart asses never win. At least not in today’s Navy.

5. This man is a hero.

I work in foodservice. My job created a rule one day that one’s hair can not touch one’s collar. I have rather long hair, but I always kept it in a braid and we wear hats, anyways. I was informed of this rule about two hours before the end of my shift, and told that I HAD to comply IMMEDIATELY because I was breaking health code.

I politely informed them that no, I was not. This was a store policy — but I would be happy to come in with my hair up the next day. I didn’t think this was unreasonable, it takes a while — not to mention pins/hair product/etc. to keep my hair up.

Not good enough! NOW!! So I punched out for a break, bought rubber bands and floral wire, made 8 braids with the wire woven in, and stuck them in every direction. Boss saw me and began screaming. I calmly told him my hair wasn’t touching my collar.

TL;DR: Long hair not allowed to touch collar, created obnoxious hairdo within regulations.

4. They’ve got no answer for that.

Company dress code allows women to wear open-toed shoes, so long as they are leather. The dress code does not allow men to do the same. A few years back, I started wearing leather sandals during the warmer months.

A few managers mentioned to me that I was in violation of the dress code and I pointed out that my shoes would be considered acceptable if I were a woman and that it’s gender discrimination to deny me the ability to wear something that is considered ok on someone of the other gender.

Haven’t heard any comments or problems since.

3. Ah, the indignant walk out. Love it.

Boss told me “you have to cover X this upcoming weekend, both days, since everybody else said no.” I said “How do you know I’ll say yes?” He said “you have to, there’s nobody left.” I said, “You’re wrong, I’m left. But I quit. Now there’s nobody left.” He was speechless, his expression was priceless, I stood there about 10 seconds and said, “I’m walking away now” and left.

Thank God this happened the day after I had (secretly) secured a better job.

Probably one of my fondest memories.

2. This used to drive me nuts, too.

When I was working at an OfficeMax about 10 years ago, I was the only employee who didn’t smoke. Needless to say, everyone in the building took a 15 min smoke break 2-3 times a shift, and I got squat.

One day, I asked the manager if I could have a “Clean Air Break”, and he was confused. I explained that since smokers can have their 15 min breaks 2-3 times a shift, I should be able to step outside and do the same without having to smoke. Irked my manager, but he knew he had to let me to avoid any discrimination.

1. Using homophobia for good.

Not a job, but a school.

I went to a Catholic college and they didn’t allow members of the opposite sex to spend the night in a dorm room.

I made a huge case that they were discriminating against heterosexuals, and that rule miraculously disappeared the next year.

I tip my hat to these folks!
