Carrying it. Little Yorkshire Terrier lapdog. I tell her, ma'am, you can't have dog in here. She tells me it's a service dog. I just googled it. You can basically take any dog anywhere, even through the salad bar at a restaurant and if confronted all you need to say is that it's a service dog.
So stupid how we as a society coddle the crazy people.
As of July 31, smokers will no longer be permitted to light up within state-assisted “HUD” housing projects.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will no longer permit the use of cigarettes, cigars, or pipes on the premises of its housing units. This includes not only the homes themselves, but any public areas, and a 25-foot radius around any outdoor spaces. The ban will not prohibit e-cigarettes, snuff, or chewing tobacco.
The new national mandate will bring the remaining 940,000 HUD housing project in line with the 228,000 already smoke-free. The new rule is projected to save about $153 million a year in both maintenance and healthcare costs — a fair chunk of the nearly half-billion savings estimated by the CDC in 2014.
But the benefits are not merely fiscal. HUD wants to reduce exposure to dangerous secondhand smoke, and encourage its tenants to drop the carcinogenic habit. To that effect, the encouragement will be underlined by stringent guidelines: Tenants could face eviction for violation of these rules — though first offenses will be forgiven.
In an attempt to save on car insurance, a Canadian male legally changed his gender to female resulting in almost $1,100 in savings.
According to CBC News, a man in his early 20's and only identified as "David" wanted to buy a Chevrolet Cruze and was given an insurance quote around $4,500. He then asked the insurer if his costs would change if he was a woman. He was told his yearly insurance bill would be reduced to $3,400, or $1,100 less.
“I was pretty angry about that,” David told CBC news. “And I didn’t feel like getting screwed over any more.”
When he asked the insurance agent to change his gender on the policy, his request was denied.
So instead, he changed his gender on his birth certificate and license by first obtaining a doctor's note by telling the doctor he identified as a woman.
“It was pretty simple,” he said. “I just basically asked for it and told them that I identify as a woman, or I’d like to identify as a woman, and he wrote me the letter I wanted.”
When David applied to change his gender, he was required to have a doctor's note, but since then, the requirement has been removed.
David claims he “took advantage of a loophole” and that he felt like he “beat the system.”
“I did it for cheaper insurance,” David said.
By switching his gender, David was able to save $91 a month.
He claims he did it to target the insurance industry, not to insult the transgender community, but many people are still upset.
An MLA in Canada tweeted out her rage calling it “Perjury” and a “crime.”
