    Re: Ben and Jerry's.....are we talking pints or bigger?

    Ben and Jerry's is one of my weaknesses. :)

    Mine too! Which one is your fav? I love Netflix and chilled, half baked and cone together.

    Wait there are bigger sizes than the pint? You should not have told me that😅

    Haha no, I think they just come in pints. I haven't seen other sizes and it's a good thing. :/ My favorite is Peanut Butter Cup. But there are many others I wouldn't say no to. :)

    Yea thank god, there is some justice in the world. Peanut butter cup has the highest calories..like 1400 if I am not mistaken. Otherwise it would have been one of my favs as well.

    Yeh, well, if I'm going to indulge, it's going to be exactly what I need. Lol Peanut butter junkie here. :o

    @MsCzar I totally agree with you in regards to abandoning your own threads being frustrating to others. I have thought (I did not check this out in anyway whatsoever), but these may be people new to MyFitnessPal and don’t know how to re-access their threads. Just a thought.

    My nice relaxing four-day weekend is being rudely interrupted by my father who, upon learning that I have Monday off, wants me to drive him to his accountant's to give them a cheque for his taxes. Not sure why he can't just MAIL a cheque like everyone else. Or why he can't take a driving service (they have a special one for mobility-impaired people) on another day when I'm at work.

    Pay it online. Soooooooo much easier and faster and confirmation...er. :)

    He's 83, he doesn't do online banking. I think this payment would have exceeded the allowable limit anyway.

    Oooh ok. Now I'm confused if the money was for the govt or the accountants and, God, I need to maybe take a real day off.

    So, yeah, he could have mailed the check! :)

    Have you ever visited Peru?
    It’s so worth a second trip.
    Beautiful with so much to see.

    This hotel 🤦🏻‍♂️. Never have I stayed at a hotel that has told me they've cut off the AC system because "it's cool enough outside so that you can open a window to stay cool at night." It's not cool enough. And I'm next to city center where it's noisy. I've had cheaper hotels that have never done this. Istanbul.. I regret almost every bit of you.

    Blast this out the open window:



    Honestly! I've trying to work this into all your Istanbul stories but you've given me nothing! :)

    It was the payment for his 2021 tax owing to Canada Revenue Agency, the accountant can forward it. Or you can mail it. Or you can either bring a cheque to the bank, or have the bank pay it directly out of your account, which I can do on his behalf since I'm joint on his accounts. None of which involve me driving him back and forth across town.

    Itty-bitty first-world irk of the day: finding an MFP entry for pumpkin in grams rather than volume. I couldn't even create an entry from the actual product label because it's only in ml. Incidentally, I have the same irk with logging ice cream because the label only has a volume measurement.

    I think it's the parents' perogative to try to make tax time difficult. My mom called saying I need to go to the accountant and sign her taxes and get them finalized. Well ya I have power of attorney but it's not for you to use when you just don't feel like doing something.

    Luckily she pays through her CRA account so I don't have to deal with that but man tax season with older folks is always so difficult

    Tax season with CLIENTS is difficult!

    On the topic of making payments...I work for an accounting firm and sometimes my boss offers me up to help people make online payments. Of all ages.

    Boss: If you need help, give glassyo a call.
    Me: (once they're on the phone) Just give me your bank info. I can make it for you. (Like being held hostage on the phone with them won't be an extra 20 mins, if I'm lucky, I won't get back?)

    Anyway, I made a payment for a client to be debited at the beginning of the month. Just under 2 weeks later, he realizes it was never debited. Ok, it's very possible I wrote a number down wrong so he sends me a pic of his checkbook.

    I make the payment again.

    It's not debited when it should have been.

    Our last resort is to have it debited through our tax software when efiling the return. Which, honestly is what should have hsppened in the first place but the client wanted it before he was ready to efile.

    THAT worked but then they end up with a bad check type penalty fee from their bank for the first go round.

    I called our state tax board to clear things up and cancel the 2nd online payment and find out there are 2 more scheduled to go through and it's too late to cancel. No one realized it takes like a week or two for the postings to show up.

    The client is PISSED. Called us sloppy and, according to his more level headed wife, is threatening legal action. I'm like "for what? HIS lack of patience?"

    Anyway, they can't be refunded until the money's debited first so that'll be another phone call I was nice enough to offer to make. :)

    @ReenieHJ And now I'm irked at your mother's accountants. Why is all this not being done online? :p
