Be a super sport & post accordingly. :D

I was quite peeved that I had just fully memorized my credit card number after previous number had been HACKED not long ago the time before, as somehow somebody tried to charge over $400 at a WalMart a couple hours away. :mad: Got a letter from our dentist's office saying someone in their front office had been ARRESTED for credit card fraud, so said individual must have been the culprit.

The serendipity part, is the dentist office gave us one year free of Experian credit monitoring. :cool: (not that we EVER waste money on using actual credit :D).

I was peeved that somehow our homeowner's insurance lapsed (with little notice), and they could not re-instate our policy (as too much time had lapsed), and we had to write a NEW policy. :confused:

Serendipity: With the writing of our new policy with same company & basically same coverage, our rate went to literally 1/2 the old rate!!! :D Went from around $1,500 a year to around $750. :cool::cool::cool:

Our golf cart (at our RV park) had been malfunctioning & running about 1/2 speed for a while. At 1st, I was going to have golf cart shop/dealer pick it up & fix it.

Instead, I found a golf cart message board, and learned exactly what the problem is, so I could WAY more cheaply fix it myself. :cool:

So for only $17 and a few minutes of my time, I'm back in business by replacing speed controller on motor. A mere 2 small mounting screws and and small bolt needed to be removed to replace the two piece controller. :D

Peeve: I searched high & low for a case for my new cell phone w/o any luck. :confused:

Serendipity: Turns out my new phone is the exact same width as my old phone, just about 3/8" taller. So I cut case in middle, and put it tight on phone, and put two layer of clear tape in the gap - works great! :D
But I did have to cut the case slightly at camera lens & flashlight, so lens would not be blocked.

I was PEEVED that on a technicality, my RV manufacturer skirted the law which requires vehicles to have TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitor System), because it has 6 wheels instead of 4.

I am equally peeved that I simply cannot add TPMS into wheels, and upgrade vehicle software to display & warn of low tire pressures. o_O

I have to reinvent the wheel (pun intended) by adding monitors to wheels, and have a fairly expensive totally separate from the vehicle display. :confused:

Peeve: It is like someone "pranked" our shop vac; it had no filter in it at all, and when I went to use it, dirt was coming out about as fast as it went in!!! :confused:

Serendipity resolution: I fashioned an ad lib filter with an old had I used whilst snow tubing in Maggie Valley a number of years ago! :D Works great!

Peeve: I ordered a bag in a box of 3 gallons of cranberry juice 5:1 concentrate (very heavy) that came with a commercial valve rather than a residential spigot, which is awkward to get juice out.

Serendipity solution: I'm able to get juice out using the end of a butter knife to push valve in enough to get juice out into a measuring cup (1 1/3 cup concentrate per each 1/2 gallon). :cool:
