Don’t Mess With Bank Security Guards Even If They’re Wrong!

bawls

Quite a while back I was sitting at home thinking to myself how good some Doritos, Pepperettes, Crunchie bars and Bawls (The energy drink you sicko…) would be. With a craving in mind I set out to get some exercise and walk there to maybe burn some of the calories I knew I was about to demolish. It was summer time and it was a star filled evening. Like most people, I needed to get some cash out of the bank because I probably wasted the last several bills on something useless and consumable. Approaching my bank I noticed one of those massive security trucks parked outside but didn’t think too much about it besides how I could maybe hide in a blind spot and round house kick the guard when he came back and make off with whatever I could get my hands on. It was a ludicrous thought. I knew I wouldn’t be able to get away with it without careful planning so I went along inside to the ATM as I initially intended.

Getting a little more focused on how good tasting my soon to be munchies would be I thrust my debit card into the slot and realized there was no resistance and it disappeared. Wondering what just happened and hoping that the screen asking for my pin would come up I realized that the security guards must be doing something with the ATM right now. I walked a bit over to the glass and knocked lightly and said “Hello? Excuse me is anyone there?”. A female guard came out from around the corner and I explained that I think my card went straight through the ATM card slot and into whatever is behind. She gave me an odd look but said to wait a second and she will check. A minute later she came back and told me that there was no card anywhere. I pleaded politely that I’m 100% sure that it’s back there somewhere because it flew through the slot like there was nothing to catch or receive it. She got a little more serious and said, “Sir, there is nothing back there”. I asked if she could please just check again so I could get my card back.

At this point I guess I was pushing her buttons, questioning her ability to observe and probably starting to seem suspicious. She put her hand on her gun flipped the holsters clip that held the gun and exclaimed  “There’s no card and you need to leave right now”. Not that she was actually going to shoot me unless I started going crazy and trying to get through the glass but I bet my eyes grew to the size of golf balls when I realized she probably thinks I’m trying to rob her. “Okay okay!” I responded and backed away slowly, turned around and walked outside.

Yeah that was a bit of excitement I didn’t expect and the worst part is I didn’t get any of the snacks I wanted. I had to return to the bank the next day where they told me no one knew anything about finding a card anywhere and had to issue me a temporary one for the time being. To this day I still wonder where that trusty card ended up and hope that it knows I didn’t abandon it; it was taken.

Canadian Winters Getting Warmer and Less Snow

What winter?

lightwinter

That’s exactly what I tell everyone when we talk about winter of last year (2012). This may not be the same for everywhere across Canada but particularly in Northern Ontario I’m pretty sure we only had maybe 4 or 5 real snowfalls. The snow would stick around for a bit if the temperature stayed below zero but for the most part it wasn’t around very much. This is an oddity as most recognize Canadian winters being very cold with an abundance of snow everywhere. I was used to it myself. I remember when I was younger how often it would snow and how I used to snowmobile almost every single day.

I haven’t owned a snowmobile in several years now but have always wanted to get another one. Last year I thought about getting one but started to notice a lack of snowfall. As the weeks continued I decided I better wait since winter seemed to basically not exist. Sure would be a shame to buy a nice sled and then only get to ride it a few times for the whole year. So with that, I figured maybe I’ll wait and see how next year would be (2013). First off winter took a pretty long time to get here. At the very least I’m thankful there was more snow on the ground for Christmas unlike last year where we had a big family get together but couldn’t do many outdoor activities with dirt and some snow on the ground. It doesn’t seem to be like the winters I remember though. What happened? Is global warming actually taking a toll on our weather this drastically? Am I just imaging the difference to be so significant?

There was an exception to snow fall on December 27th 2012. In fact it was quite the exceptional amount of snow. Some places ended up with 50 cm of snow. The snowstorm ripped through the United States midsection, particularly Arkansas. It knocked out power and tragically claimed the life of several people. This storm was so ferocious that airplanes were grounded, police had to use snowmobiles, highways had to be shut down, and cars were piled up or sliding everywhere. There was so much snow in Montreal that it actually beat out the previous record snowfall champion of March 1971 that left many without power for 10 days.

Although this single day brought on quite the hefty amount of snowfall in many cities, it still pales in comparison to the true records in Canada and the US. The biggest single day snowfall recorded in Canadian history was in Tahtsa Lake, British Columbia with a grand tally of 145 cm of snow on February 11, 1999. That’s a crazy amount of snow for one day! Our neighbors to the south have claim to an unbelievable 192 cm of snow in Silver Lake, Colorado on April 15, 1921. Now that’s an absolutely absurd amount of snow… That’s almost 4 times what Montreal received this year in the most chaotic snowstorm lately.

Besides having a ridiculous snowfall there still seems to be a lack of snow. There are many days that warm up over 0 and start melting again. There’s several days where it’s supposed to rain. What happened to the blistering cold winter of the past? Is this going to be the norm for the foreseeable future? I sure hope not, otherwise I’ll never get to buy that new sled. I’m certainly not a meteorologist but it seems like a trend. Not everyone likes winter but most would like it to be full on winter or no snow at all. No one likes the in between of ice, slush or even rain or at least I don’t.

A non existent winter with a dash of snowstorm every once in a while. This looks like what we have to look forward to from now on. Guess I better move south because if Canadian winters are getting this sad, I might as well live in full time sunshine. So, is this it?

We Live to Die – Create Your Own Opportunities

Did you know that we are taught to all live in a perpetual routine? I’m not talking wake up, shower, get dressed, eat, brush your teeth etc. I’m talking about something on a larger scale.

We live to die.

up2

Think about it. We are told that we have to go to public school to get to high school. Then we have to get good grades so that we can get into a good post secondary institution. We go to college or university so that we can get “decent” paying job. Then we work all our lives until we’re old so that we can build up a pension or some kind of safety net to pay for everything when we’re old and retired. Just when all that life long work is done we can finally relax and do whatever we want. A little late to do whatever I want. What if I need to budget the money I saved up just to get by. That means hardly any special trips/vacations and that’s if i’m even in good shape to travel around the world. At that point I’ll probably just want to sit around and eat Fiber One. What a waste.

We can’t get time back. It’s always running out and unforgiving. No one wants to work a 9-5 all of their life just so that they can have enough money to survive after they hit 60. Your told that’s what your supposed to do and that’s life. Guess what? It’s NOT.

Now I agree everyone should learn all the basic education that public and high school provide. I’m not against going to college/university if there’s a skill or field I’m personally passionate about. What I don’t agree with is working for 40, 30, 20 or even 10 years for someone else and only making enough to comfortably survive. I’d like to live my life and enjoy it. I’d like to travel or spend time with family. I’d like to do whatever I want to do and whenever I want to do it. Of course we all want that right? We all dream of it but hardly anyone takes control and makes it happen. Most people are too scared to step out of the “traditional” jobs and predefined life plan. Most people think they’d have to spend all their life and money to run their own business anyway. Most people don’t realize that WE create our own opportunities and we can make anything happen.

Computer-money

A lot of people write in diaries or notebooks. Imagine you could get paid more in a month than most successful people make in an entire year by simply writing about whatever you feel. Is that just a dream? Or maybe you’ll realize it’s possible and ANYONE can do it. Getting the picture yet? This is a real business and normal everyday people like you and I make thousands of dollars everyday. Their day consists of writing up a little blog, promoting it and then doing whatever they want. The beautiful thing is that once you write a blog it’s ALWAYS working for you. In ten years from now the cool post you did today is STILL making you money. All it does is continue to build.

I’d like to invite you to a distinguished group of people that make money online. People that make more money than probably everyone you personally know today. People just like you.

If this sounds like the life you want to live then check out the link below and if your still not interested, then I wish the best for you all the same.
