  • How can I ask my supermarket not to send "special needs" delivery guy?

    I do my grocery shopping on line and get about 15-20 bags of groceries every 2 weeks. Also 2 cases of water and a 20 lb bag of kitty litter. Today they sent a guy, who I think was a little slow and something was wrong with his arms and legs (maybe CP). I live on the 4th floor of a walk up. Today, to make two trips, he took 45 mins to get up. I then asked my boyfriend to get dressed and help him. On his 3rd trip I had to give him a bottle of water. How can I "nicely" tell my market that I think the job was too much for him without sounding mean?

  • Why is my computer so slow after upgrading to Windows 10?

    A few weeks ago I updated my desktop from Windows 7 to 10. Since then my computer is very slow. I don't use Explorer and it's there. I use either Firefox or Google. Are there any programs associated with Windows 10 that I can safely delete to make it run faster?

  • How can I upgrade my desktop from Windows 7 to 10.?

    Our computer tech at work told me how to upgrade my home desktop from Windows 7 to Windows 10. It was going through the change fine and then suddenly it said that it cannot upgrade to Windows 10 because my Windows 7 is not genuine. I bought this CPU refurbished on ebay about 3 years ago. Now when I turn it on it keeps saying it's not genuine and needs a product key. I do not have one. What can I do?

  • How do I cook a half shank ham?

    I have never made a ham in my life and got one free from the market for spending a certain amount. It's raw and weighs almost 12 lbs. I will cook it Monday. How long do I cook it, do I wash before cooking? Do I add water to the pan? I am going to use chives, pineapples and cherries.

  • My boyfriends daughter hoards food in front of my guests.?

    My boyfriend's 28 year old daughter who suffers from depression and doesn't work or do anything (he pays the bills in his 2 daughter's household), comes to my house all the time looking for food. Her sister says she starves herself and when she sees food she goes crazy. Yesterday I had my annual family dinner. I was up since 6 am cooking. She ate 2 big plates of food here and afterwards I found out she took 3 more plates of food and went home and left it there and came back. My guests told me that after my boyfriend (who lives with me) helped her home later on. I packed up other leftovers for my guests in one container each. I hardly had any stuffed shells left for my own leftovers. My sister, niece and daughter in law made dishes and brought them too. When my boyfriend came back I told him that was very embarrassing what his daughter did. He got mad at me and stayed up all night drinking. He pities her cause she tried to kill herself last New Years eve. I hate greedy people and am going to say something to her when I see her. I know it may cause conflict between me and my boyfriend. What are your thoughts?

  • My apartment drinking water was tested positive for hardness at 120.?

    I filed a complaint with the EPA here in New York City. I had to call Sears 3 times in 8 months because my washer fill hose kept getting clogged with dirt. The tech suggested I have my water tested. EPA is still checking but I bought a home water test kit. One test I am still waiting on (have to leave it for 48 hours). But the water hardness test part came back as 120. How dangerous is this? I don't even give faucet water to my cats anymore because they were throwing up. We are drinking bottled water, but still bathing, etc with regular water.

  • Is there a freeze on rent stabilized apartments in New York City?

    I read a few months ago that the NYC Rent Guideline Board is freezing the rent on rent stabilized units in New York City. M neighbor and I both live in a rent stabilized apartment. Both our leases were up on September 1st and so far we have not heard anything about signing a new lease. Usually our new leases come a month ahead of time and we sign for another 2 years and send the lease back with the extra security deposit. I tried finding this on line but it's too confusing. Does anyone know if I will get an increase this year?
