Your Texting Addiction Could Cost You Your Job : The Saturday Weekend Review : #162

LEAVE YOUR SMARTPHONE ALONE   Texting, hail to the new normal of our world where looking down is more important than life itself. Is texting making you less human? For many people the answer is yes because the smartphone addiction is a hard habit to break. Why oh why have we not learned that texting is an evil that can instantly cost you your life, someone else’s life or your job. Do you ever catch yourself saying this? It will never happen to me. I will never get caught. No one is watching. It was only a second. It takes only a second, to die or get injured. One second! You can never take that second back. As a new parent I’m skeptical to leave our son with anyone because these days I wonder what kind of care he would get. I’m sure I’ll get over it but any parent will tell you they worry about their child even when they are not with them. If you bring your child to daycare or any other activity that requires someone to watch your child you want to make sure they are 100% protected from harm. Accidents do happen but when they […]

The Breakup Shop- How to become single for under $50 hassle free : The Saturday Weekend Review #152

TAKING THE EASY WAY OUT OF DUMPING SOMEONE YOU’RE NOT THAT INTO   Breaking up with someone after a few dates or dating them for a while is hard for just about anyone, unless you really don’t care about the person. This breakup service I’m going to tell you about today might just be the new trend in breaking up with your girlfriend or boyfriend while you’re out shopping or doing whatever it is you do. It’s been a while since I’ve chatted about dating and relationships but it always seems that just before the holidays is when people go their separate ways. Some of the men I’ve known over the years bail because they don’t know what to buy their girlfriend who might be expecting jewellery or a ring. I can’t control what my friends do behind closed doors and neither can you and I’d never judge them either. It’s their life, not mine even though I’d feel sorry if I knew it was never going to last from the get go. Then there are the men who don’t have the cash to buy gifts so the easy way out is to dump who they’re dating for the single […]

Driving distractions and making your own rules of the road cost

NOT USING COMMON SENSE COSTS   Driving a vehicle takes skill and that’s why in Ontario a licence is not handed to you on a silver platter. If you factor in the cost of purchasing a car, obtaining auto insurance and licence plate stickers, just owning a vehicle can be expensive. Add in the cost of getting your driver’s licence, renewing it every five years, gas to be able to drive your vehicle as well repairs and regular maintenance and the cost of driving quickly goes up. So if owning and driving a car takes up a significant chunk of our budgets, why do some of us choose to make driving even more expensive than it already is? While these expensive choices eat away at our budgets they are often also unsafe.   Distracted driving   With the wide use of smart phones these days, distracted driving is most often referenced as ‘texting and driving’. Even though texting is what we most often hear about, it is not the only thing that classifies as distracted driving. Having two kids in the car can be a distraction I will admit, it’s hard to ignore. Sometimes they get upset because I can’t […]
