@ZCPIf you have a foolproof way to grow 50 grand very quickly then all anyone would have to do is call up someone with 50 grand and make a equity deal or take out a loan.
Well I should have asked Johnny since it seems it was his quote.
Rule 1 backup first.I call for support, and the conversation typically goes something like this; is your computer/phone/toaster oven turned on? Have you tested the outlet with something so you know the outlet is good? Did you press the on/off button to turn it on? If we get to the actual problem area on a PC, for example, it then goes - you have to clear all your cookies and data cache from your browser. Oh, that didn't help? Sorry. Yeah - sorry - now all my shortcuts and remembered logins are erased. Or worse yet, we will have to reformat your hard drive.
I did some inital research on this, a lot of the time the customers who complained the most were unwilling to buy premium support or the extended warranty. So why would they pay anyone else to do it?I'd do this myself
Takes all of 2 minutes to find 2 suppliers that will deliver. Do you have some issue with using Amazon?. An example that I just encountered is this - try - just try - to buy a car battery online.
What kind of vehicle do you have?I can't even identify what battery I need.
Sounds more like a QA problem with a bit of customer service,still skimping on that is why they are so cheap. The question becomes how much extra will how many people pay for a better quality product?Customer support. That's what I'm talking about. Pick a dozen products on Amazon and read the reviews. Over half of them will have something important to say about customer support. There is a big difference between ongoing support for software and having a number to call because the product was not usable, for whatever reason, when it was first used.
Indeed, although I was simply following the instructions of the mechanic whom had hired me for the week. Hell of a lot easier than changing an engine.COLOR=rgb(184, 49, 47)]Yes, I do. I am talking about a car battery. Have you ever changed a car battery?
Ah right, I thought you wanted to have it installed. The Garage I worked in had customers who would drive to them and have their oil done,battery changed, trye tread checked,etc. Of course I suppose it depends on rhe density of the area you live in.I don't want one delivered - I want to buy it and have it installed, and have the old one disposed of. That's the way the car battery business works. Same for oil changes. They do the work and dispose of the old oil and the old filter for you. Batteries and oil changes are a messy and time-consuming task.
The mechanic. Maybe the small business owner who had been running a garage for 5 years was wrong,however he explained to me that he was unable to do any of his on-call battery replacement any more as the manufacters on board computer system would have a fit if the right chip wasn't present, and this was why he had to stock loads of batteries on site(I had wondered, apparently they were all different types.COLOR=rgb(184, 49, 47)]Who cares?
Make one up. My point is that the Sears website to find a battery - among the dozens of types and sizes available - does not function. At all.
Actually I said do you have an issue with Amazon? I was doing research, asking you questions about the problem and doing as you suggested "Try finding a battery online"You should think things through before you offer suggestions. You sound like one of my sons. Everything is so easy - there is an app for that - do you know how to use Amazon? Yes, it's all so simple... LOL
Yes and for some reason your unwilling to go to them despite being interested in having your battery changed.....[/QUOTE]Now you might know why the oil change and battery places are in business... same for tires, brakes, mufflers, and shocks...[/COLOR]

I would start a Tinder but for pets.... you see a bunch of dogs and pick the ones you likeSponges. I'm bullish on sponges.
Kaks sponge emporium.
I have one. Do you have 50k? What is your phone number?
Beacuse those with capital just give out money to any random person,with a "foolproof" idea that calls them up
They want you to have "skin in the game"(invest your own capital) be a "line rather than a dot", "invest in people" how long have they known you? For how long? What experience do they have. You also need to prove or convince them you can.
At the point you have the abilty to do that you may as well sell to customers or crowdfund.
Note that a lots of things can be purchased monthly and 50k a year isn't a massively high paying job, sure it is above low paying.
The local bank manager would quite happily advance me the money,based on sufficient income.
Not trying to be a dick but @LittleWolfie , have you ever been tested for mental retardation?Well I should have asked Johnny since it seems it was his quote.
Still shows you need to have a) done something worth "shit" and have a foolproof idea.
Personally, I would go with the latter.
Actually yes, I was tested and determined as gifted, albeit with low empathy , inabilty to effectively detect and employ sarcasm, difficulty understanding emotions and figurative turns of phase. That is basically idiot savant, so medically speaking your actually along the right lines of diagnoses.
Okay now I feel bad lol.. low empathy makes sense, I'm guessing somewhere on the spectrum?Actually yes, I was tested and determined as gifted, albeit with low empathy , inabilty to effectively detect and employ sarcasm, difficulty understanding emotions and figurative turns of phase.

Pretty good for a (presumably) non MD whom has nevet met me. Have you considered a fastlane to appeal to those with difficulties learning social graces?
The thing is if **all** it takes is a foolproof plan, and a phone number then you should invest in any eejit that calls you with one. Perhaps it will prove you are a fool.
On the other hand if you, want them to avoid being a dick,have a modicum of social graces,be "smart", done somthing before then that money+ phone call isn't all it takes.
Did they literally mean all?
No worries I am on a spectrum,just probably a different one to what you were thinking.Okay now I feel bad lol.. low empathy makes sense, I'm guessing somewhere on the spectrum?
No worries, I did know that I was trying to use sarcasm as an analogy (probably a bad idea) to discuss it but well I take "all it takes is a foolproof idea and a phone number of someone with 40k" literally which means if it is inappropriate and/or you need to have a proven record then that means that actually you need more than what was claimed to be "all you need".Just for future reference it's generally not appropriate to ask a stranger on the internet for a $50,000 loan unless you have a proven track record.
Bear in mind I'm not actually autistic,that was screened out there are a number of similar neurodevelopmental disorders each with their own appropriate medical staff. Although I do have some similar symptoms.Just a few articles I found:
Children with autism take longer than others to learn social skills. Strategies like role-play and video-modelling can help your child learn these skills.raisingchildren.net.au
would talk to a therapist since they're trained in that type of stuff.
I meant autism spectrum, even if not actual autism. Generally problems with empathy are either on the spectrum, or psychopathy. Since you don't strike me as a psychopath, I'm guessing somewhere on the spectrum, even if it's not actual full-blown Autism. Either way, I was just linking those articles becasue they could provide hints toward developing social awareness.No worries I am on a spectrum,just probably a different one to what you were thinking.
