  1. Here here. If any of us ran our businesses or acted this way as employees of a normal business, we would lose our jobs. When my oldest daughter graduated high school, she worked for a year before going to university. She was one of those kids who was super responsible from an early age, i.e. in high school was the editor of the school newspaper who would stay late on a Friday afternoon to finish the articles her journalism classmates had failed to complete, so everything would be ready to go to press for the school newspaper deadline. So she got a job as a temp secretary, who would called to work at various offices to fill in for employees who were out sick, or on vacation, or on maternity leave, etc. She was shocked when she got called to work in a federal govt. office and heard her boss spending hours on the phone one day making arrangements for a ski trip for her son. That's the kind of stuff they're doing instead of answering clients' emails or returning phone calls.
  2. It was a clueless suggestion. She doesn't need to go to the US to get something notarized that will be accepted.
  3. Too bad you don't understand the meaning of deflection, which is countering with something irrelevant to the question. It isn't irrelevant to point out that while you ask others to answer your questions, you ignore theirs.
  4. How about you answer all the questions that are put to you on this forum which you pointedly ignore and deflect from whenever you have no rational answer?
  5. I keep small electronics, like the remotes, my little battery pack, my electronic bank token, and extra batteries in a Tupperware box with a container of moisture absorbing beads in it. It keeps all those things from corroding.
  6. Sounds like a whole lot of wasted time, work and money. Par for the course in Mexico, it seems.
  7. What a ridiculous thing to say. What makes you assume she is going to the US?
  8. It isn't politics- it's world economics. Everything you don't agree with you label "Democrat", "leftie", "fascist", etc.
  9. Nothing scientific about that at all, since you haven't stated how many litres your tank holds.
  10. Congratulations. However, it would have been useful for you to have asked to see what she did so you could start to understand some of this tech stuff you need to do. Many of us are not particularly tech proficient, but if you don't bother to pay attention to the solutions, you can't ever hope to be able to become more knowledgable and self-sufficient. My 91 year old stepmom navigates her smartphone like a teenager, Facebooking, booking flights and accommodations, etc. If she could learn this stuff, we all can. And BTW, it is good online etiquette to thank all the people who took the time to try to help you out.
  11. If you notice, I only weighed in for just that reason- the responses that followed the original topic post all condemned the seller, and even asked for his name so they could avoid buying anything from him, simply based upon the OPs account of second-hand information. Declaring someone guilty of terrible behavior based on one third-party account, without any other evidence, or having both sides of a story and adequate first-hand information is unfair and ridiculous.
  12. You keep contradicting yourself. You first said that in your work up north it was the contractor's responsibility to check that the materials ordered were the same as the ones delivered. Then you said it was the worker's responsibility not to start nailing down materials without checking that they were the correct materials. Now you say it's the seller who should take the hit. Both parties have responsibility here- the homeowner who never bothered to check that what she received was what she ordered (and probably doesn't know the difference anyway) and the seeller who screwed up the order. Instead of this becoming some nasty adversarial situation, I would suggest that the seller and buyer should try to work out some reasonable terms. Unless the seller is simply scamming, it would seem that the customer now has superior materials to what she actually ordered, which will perform better over time and probably save her money in the long run.
  13. That's certainly how I understood the situation. And if that is true, condemning the seller with no information to go on aside from the original post here, which isn't even his own experience, but hearsay from his friend, is rather unfair. We don't know what happened. Did the homeowner not check to make sure what was delivered was what she ordered? Perhaps the seller had 2 truckloads of roofing materials go out at the same time and mixed up the addresses when giving them to the drivers? I'm certainly not defending a seller rudely demanding a customer pay an extra 11,000 pesos for a delivery error, but in fact, no one here knows if that was indeed the way he phrased it.
  14. A couple of Mexican workers are not responsible for this. They would not necessarily have any idea what materials the homeowner ordered nor how much they should cost, nor would they have any idea how much the homeowner paid for them. Your NOB ideas do not apply to how things work in Mexico.
  15. It would be foolish of the seller to sell the car without signing it over and removing the plates. That's how you can get in trouble if the buyer has an accident- the seller, who appears to still be the legal owner, will be held legally responsible.
