You Can Call Me “Rushed Limbaugh”

But not “Rush Limbaugh.” So many things to do today, including mowing my front and back yard. Who the heck called for this morning’s rain? There was no prediction of rain for this week, let alone on my last day before vacation. Dangen!

As if I needed another task to complete before departure, I received a letter from the City of Atlanta telling me that I’ve not registered for a business license in the city and must do so within the next ten days. WTF? This is the first I’ve heard of this matter; this was not mentioned in any of the research that I performed prior to starting my LLC in February. I am not the only person for whom this documentation is puzzling either. When I posted my receipt of this documentation a few people also said that they had received it and had no idea that this process was required. Some days I think that I should give up on the LLC since I’m rarely shooting and not coming up with any stellar application ideas.

    Allan registered for an LLC many years ago, so he could get paid by the City of Atlanta to do some bike maintenance work. I just pay the $30 charge every year to the state, and that is about it (since it isn’t actually used for any business, he got paid once by the city). I can’t believe the city wants you to pay money too.

    We had a door to door salesman last night from UVerse, how about that for timing? We got the whole package (including TV) – we have 30 days after it is installed to cancel free of charge. So, we will play with the UVerse TV to see if it is as good as DirectTV before cancelling the other.

  2. I have to re-read the fine print, but I’m not sure that I need to pay for this license. It just seems like another idiotic Government procedure. I guess I should feel fortunate that it arrived before I left for vacation, but I just don’t feel like dealing with it.

    The timing of the U-Verse salesman’s arrival is perfect. I’ll warn you that once you get fast enough internet to watch movies on demand you’ll never want to go back to slower internet speeds.

    OH, I’m sure we will keep the internet regardless, it is the TV I’m worried about.
    They can’t install it until 9/17, so we get to hurry up & wait.

  4. Yeah, it took a while for them to come out to my house once I placed my order. If it’s like my install they’ll send two trucks, one to connect a new Network Interface Device to the house, one to make the indoor connections.

    Wow. My school server isn’t blocking you today as “adult content” so I had to post even though I have nothing entertaining to say 🙂

  6. Hahaha, it’s not like I’ve cleaned up my act or anything. 😉

    The only way I can get to your site today is through my work account. Your site (along with a couple others) is being hijacked on my home computer. No idea what to do, I’ve run 4 (yes four) anti virus/malware/spybot programs and haven’t found anything amiss. *sigh*

    On a positive note, I just got back from a lunch time run, not too bad out there, much better than it’s been the last two months.

    So far work-at-home Thursday is pretty good. Now its time for a shower and maybe a nap (since I was awake at 12:30 replying to emails).
