Scams and Ripoffs

I'm very close to posting my version of Anna's birth story with pictures so stay tuned....
Meanwhile, I wanted to rant about a couple of things.

One, apparently my Mom hasn't heard about the Craigslist housing scams. She is all excited about a rental house in Cupertino for us and she shows me the e-mail and it is one of those African scams but she still didn't even see that. A lot of people haven't heard about these apparently.

Second, so our car broke down in Aptos last weekend. We tow it to a local Toyota dealer in Capitola and they call us Sunday with the repair estimate. Needless to say, it was an OUTRAGEOUS amount!! It completely ruined our whole day and who wants a ruined Sunday? We are trying to arrange our whole financial future and just get more and more depressed about it. We tell my Dad about it and he suggests to tow it back to his mechanic in Campbell. The guy did the same repair for $3000 less!! $3000, are you kidding me? How do these people sleep at night?
