If you're not willing to negotiate, look into a car buying program. Multiple organizations have them, AAA, CostCo, AllState, etc.
This is similar to being involved in a VPP type program. You'll get a set price on the vehicle, no negotiation. They will try to stick you with fees, but that can be a...

Get a used oil analysis. It's the only valid way to determine what the oil change interval is for YOUR car/environment and driving style. It's only around $30 and you can mail it in (I use Blackstone Labs).
3k is old, but could be valid for the filter in really harsh environment with tons of part...

It's going to get worse. Cameras can only be so thin. Phones are going to keep getting thinner.[/quote]
Well then should the phone really be that thin? If the tech to make the camera smaller is not there, then the tech to make the phone thinner is not there. The phone can only be as thin a...

Don't rat him out. Talk to him, which it seems you have. He may also be biding time until Jan 1, so he can get paid for 2015 vacation too (smart man).
But, why are you doing his work? Are you his boss/direct report? How does his work affect your performance? If he doesn't want to do it, frick it, ...

Are you limited in columns you could use? Do you want the same result if "+" and same if "-"?
If so, build a hidden column next to A/B and Y/Z, and use a singe IF to assign the value of X as "1" and Y as "-1", same for A/B. Then just use IF that Column A/B x Column Y/Z is positive/negative....

What's difference between what you owe vs what you think you could sell it for?
If trade in, you get the tax credit, and could also roll over the debt inequity. Not ideal, but if you can't sell it for what you owe will have to do it anyway.
As far as selling it privately, I alwasy start at car...

No, definitely just condensation from the long run. As the exhaust travels up, the cool pipe cause the hot air to condense water from the moist air. It drips back down into flex pipe.
I fought if for years. It sucks. Made me hate my house and the dryer.

Check your flex pipe. My vents through the roof, and the flex pipe behind the dryer would fill with water every couple of months. You could actually hear the dryer/water surging during use.
I had to disconnect it from back of dryer, and drain it. Usually got about a gallon of water from it.
