some will replace original parts with cheap copy

@  bill44ca : (19 August 2018 - 01:53 PM)

I too would not waste time repairing a TV or Computer unless it was a very expensive one here. But I don't know MacGuyver

@  Biggles : (19 August 2018 - 11:18 AM)

Yes, I had the same thought but a recommendation helps. Dont think it is a major problem.

@  Kadachiman : (19 August 2018 - 09:46 AM)

I have had 3 different companies take 5 attempts to fix my aircond (leaking gas)...still no luck. This and other items that I needed 'repaired' has led me to the conclusion that the skills are not available to fix anything, so better to throw it away and buy new

@  scuba539 : (19 August 2018 - 08:35 AM)

Saw an ad in the Blue Book for ACT TV Repair shop...09178315689...Never used them but claim to have been in Biz since 1981

@  Biggles : (19 August 2018 - 06:57 AM)

My TV is playing up, any one know a reliable repair place in AC, please. A home visit place would be good, no transport, but somewhere near to downtown AC would be ok as could take it in a trike.

@  bill44ca : (19 August 2018 - 02:19 AM)

@sandman if your computer goes down you should not have to wait 2 days. Second floor of SM has a couple places that will fix it while you wait if they have the part

@  statusquo : (19 August 2018 - 01:05 AM)

@grahamuk It was mega-hot from June up until a couple of weeks ago. It had been hitting 35 degrees some days. Hotter than the Philippines!

@  grahamuk : (18 August 2018 - 02:24 PM)

I thought it was supposed to have been the hottest summer on record in the UK. Then again, we know how quickly that can change.:(

@  stew : (18 August 2018 - 12:58 PM)

So, This is how it started. This pinay I am chatting with for a few weeks. Asked me, what I do and I said I am doing my own IT business. This triggered her thought process and she said, do you want to start a business in Cebu. I said NO, I have no intention of doing so.

 

She: Baby, I want to run my own business like a restaurant.

Me: OK. What kind of restaurant

She: Jollibee. Can you help be baby?

Me: Have you run a business or restaurant before?

She: No. Jollibee is good business. I can run it.

Me: Do you know how much to start a Jollibee franchise in Cebu?

She: NO. But you help me Na

Me; You want me to front you a million dollars?

She: Not that much. Something less.

Me: Fuck off bitch. Find another sucker.

 

 

I blocked her and voila end of story. In my 5+ years, I have never had a request like this. I am reminded of a scene from 'Coming to America' when Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall go to bank and send money request to his father for money and finally the teller says, why don't you ask for a cool million dollars? They agree and send the message. 

 

Even the Nigerian scammers don't ask for a million dollars for fee for a half a billion dollar payout. This shit takes the cake.

 

So Question to you esteemed mongers and brothers in forum. Can any one of you beat the request I got? Or do you have anything crazier than this (not $ wise)?

 

Have at it. Looking forward to your replies.

I get where you're coming from and to ask you to set her up in business is a bit strong but YOU mentioned a million dollars not her.
Had you met the girl or just communicated with her ? To make requests like that before she's even met you and got her hooks in you is laughable but there are ladies who try it on and even more unbelievable men who fall for it.
Recently some idiot was posting on FB that he sent 20,000 pesos to a girl to reserve him a room and guess what she spent it on her family. He arrived nowhere to stay, met at the airport by the whole family and taken for more money for a big meal !

All I ever get is the inevitable money requests for sick relatives etc etc which I always refuse, nobody's tried to sting me for business start up, I'd laugh at them if they did.

I have been chatting with her for about 8 weeks, till I blocked her. She came across as a girl with a decent head (not crazy) on her shoulders. Of course, in my chatting with her I had slipped up and said I won my own business in IT and I travel to HKG, Dubai, India and other places for my job/business. So, she caught on to that and she had seen me in the Cathay First class lounge etc. before and chatting with her. That's when she knew I am doing well financially. I was taken aback by her request but looks like she has done some homework or heard about Jollibee franchises. I look at it and it says 30 to 40 million pesos, which is about 600 to 800K (less than a million) USD. That's why she said, not that much but less than that. 

 

Still I find it incredulous that somebody would ask a request like that. My friend  owns a Bar Be Que chain franchise near Houston and his expenses came to about a million USD and I just threw that number in from my memory. 

 

If my ex knows that I can be hit for a million that easy, she would have or not left me at all. LOL

 

What I find is the sheer audacity or stupidity of that request without batting an eyelid. Like it was normal.

Anyways, I was just wondering how many people get such crazy request. Money or otherwise (but it should make you laugh at the craziness of the request). May be what is the maximum amount of money that you have been requested. 

 

I was doing Tant's math for his hook up dates. 800 if I like it or 1000 if you make me happy deal.  It comes to approximately 50000 lays @ 1000 pesos per lay.  Even at 600K, i am looking at 30K lays. 

 

Nutty. I know people send 20K USD on a FB request. I am used to 5K pesos or 10K pesos request, but this is unbelievable.

One of my ex girlfriends recently messaged me asking me to lend her money that she would pay back as soon as she got her first pay check from the factory as she no longer worked in a bar.

 

This one was living with me in AC but kept having family emergencies and had to go to Manila. I was even stupid enough to take her to the bus depot.

 

One time she left her tablet at home and eventually I looked at it. She was talking to another foreigner named Jason and was telling him she would be able to see him both Saturday and Sunday this weekend.

 

So the girl expects me to pay for her, her family and everything else involved like medical, food and genuine love and affection on my part and she thinks there is nothing wrong with being unfaithful every time she catches a new fish or an existing one. It turned out she had been communicating with him for the last six months.

 

They see nothing wrong with this as this is their culture. 

 

Sorry to say that the cultural differences will beat us every time.

Well they are immature and get really excited when they know or become close to someone with money. What's odd to me is how you get so angry about it.

I would have had a good laugh and used it as the basis for teasing and jokes.  They get silly excited sometimes and that's a part of their charm to me anyway.  They are good about being turned down. Would probably just move on to another crazy idea which you can have a chuckle in anticipation of.  

You must be a young guy to fly off the handle so readily.  Why many prefer older guys because they see their schemes as childish amusements not something to become enraged about.

It's not so much about the amount of the request, rather then the request itself and the hurt feelings about it for some.

Yeah I suppose. Just when you think that money has no part in it and she loves you deeply just for being you.  Yeah i guess that's a reason for strong emotion if you were imagining that was how it was.

 

I was just charmed by the entire package and their silliness runs in that direction sometimes. Certainly not a reason to angrily end it.

 

  Now if she gets nasty and shitty toward you because you took her request as the joke it is. Then that is a reason to end it. But otherwise they can think out loud with me and express their thoughts freely  with no penalty for doing so.

 

If you police that too harshly then just get used to stiff standardized replies. Maybe some guys prefer it that way.

 

I would have said something like....."That sounds like a great idea honey but knowing how you like Jollibee. I think that owning a store. You might eat to much of it and lose that hot slim figure I like so much".

 

"I got a better idea. I could buy the mall of America and you could be in charge of selecting shoes to sell and shoe stores to have in our mall. As well as fashions and the women's fashion stores to have in the mall." Fantasize with her until she realizes how foolish it all is.

One of my "regulars" is constantly asking me for money for her education. I never budged. Finally she found a sucker who paid her 20.000 for the new college semester and another 10.000 every month and did fuck her over 4 nights when he was in Cebu.

 

Now, when we together I must not talk about "her BF". I am her "husband"--as I took her virginity 2 years ago. 

 

A month ago she again came up that she needs 2000 peso for her birthday party. I was asking whether her BF not send her anything. Her reply:

 

"He send me 5000 already. But you as my husband must also send me for my birthday"

 

Go figure :)

I had one once say....."Its my birthday coming up...what is my present from you?".    I thought back and said "Wait a minute your birthday is in August I remember it".  She replied in all seriousness  " I have decided to have two birthdays......one in August for family and another in October for friends".

 

Looking at me as if she thought I should be impressed by her great  idea. Instead I laughed of course which brought out the stuck out lower lip and sagged down sad face.  You just have to be good humored about their foolishness.

X-mas, NY, Valentines, Easter, Birthdays, Wedding Anniversary, Kids Anniversary, then whole family birthdays,

then you become Ninong to about a dozen kids, wife becomes ninang to another dozen, graduations, etc etc.

 

If you let them carry on, every day is a party on your expenses lol.

In my experience their birthdays always seem to coincide with my next visit, funny that :)
What I do now is not tell them a firm date, then ask when their birthday is, guess what ? I'm not in town that day lol :)

You're right it's best not to get angry or take it personally, they try it on all the mugs (foreigners) why should you be different ? and you'd be surprised how often they're successful.

I just say no or laugh about it. It's how u let them down that's important (so they don't lose face) and how they accept it.
Those that accept a first refusal are worth meeting, the ones that try a second or third time or are relentless are likely serious scammers and best avoided.

Did I come off as angry in my post? If so it was unintentional. No there was no anger at all. But just the fact that she had no qualms about a million bucks and the non-nonchalance of it. I thought it was amusing to say the least.

 

I forgot to mention she was a factory worker in North Taiwan and was tired of working night shifts. She is smart and removed the comments. Many of them.  While I find it funny and hilarious about this outlandish requests, the reason for my posting was to find out if any of you have other outrageous albeit funny requests.

I don't really see anything so horrible to what she said. I mean she didn't lie. It's like a kid asking for an expensive new toy, you just say no...

The lies and elaborate cons are the awful ones, not just some squirrely dame who wants to run her own business but doesn't have a clue.

Of course the number one crazy request is to start a sari sari store. Most of them dream about that.  Sitting there all day with a little TV going to watch the soaps.  In the center of the coming and going action of the neighborhood. Observing all so they can be the source or recipient of all local gossip. Surrounded by snacks and soda that you can have at will.  Flirting or being flirted by all the handsome local guys. 

 

It is the all time dream job for the average not too bright Filipina.

 

If they get one they start giving freebies to family and friends or let family and friends have on credit. Make enemies with the other sari sari owners and there are probably 2 or 3 within a stones throw. Eat and drink up the profits themselves becoming chubby and the whole thing goes bad when they don't have money to restock.

I had one once say....."Its my birthday coming up...what is my present from you?".    I thought back and said "Wait a minute your birthday is in August I remember it".  She replied in all seriousness  " I have decided to have two birthdays......one in August for family and another in October for friends".

 

Looking at me as if she thought I should be impressed by her great  idea. Instead I laughed of course which brought out the stuck out lower lip and sagged down sad face.  You just have to be good humored about their foolishness.

 

Haha, have heard that one numerous times too. I usually will reply, that i'm sorry. I'm not a rich guy. All I can offer you is the continued gift of my friendship. If that will not give you happiness, then I will understand if you unfriend or delete and/or block me. And, advanced happy birthday by the way. maligayang kaarawan. 

Then, on the sick family bla bla money requests, I cant remember who'd said it, to give credit where credit is due about praying for them. But I replied to the latest one that i'm sorry, but i'm not rich. But I will pray for you and/or your family member. (I ain't that religious). To my surprise, that shut the girl's money requests flat out.
