I hear ya! Spike will be here doing the ordering and handling that end of it. And I will play it by ear. I have no trouble saying No to him if he asks me to go on line to help with any work that involves the building. If Management ever found out, he could lose his job and we both could be evicted. The problem comes with Work Orders. I would know who called it in, tenants name, etc. Tenant info is private and not for other tenants to know about.

I have helped tenants with their taxes, food stamps, etc. Not one other tenant knows who I helped or with what. Not unless they told someone themselves. Sometimes one will tell others, "Go see Adele, she can help you get Food Stamps, etc. She helped me." You could tell me you murdered your mother, and I would keep my mouth shut unless I thought you were a serial killer.

I'm sitting here thinking where I can find an affordable Ball Gown for a 10yr old. Caitlin was asked to the Valentine's Ball by a very sweet boy in Grade 7. I need to find her something. It's her first real dance and she's so excited!!

I'm sitting here debating if I want to clear all that drifted snow we got last night. I may just let is sit until tomorrow... or not... undecided. The temp is down to 7F from 12F when I woke up at 5:00. And I know my walk behind blower will need gas. I don't feel like leaving the house and getting it. Wonder what's on Netflix...

Pacanis, have you watched the TV series Justified? I'm into the second season and feeling sad that I'm nearly done with it. Great time waster if you don't want to clear snow!

Shoot, not free (that I can find). Looks like a good show.

Just got back from the store, I bought some bulk bologna (to grind up), sweet pickle relish and some salad dressing, to make some minced sandwiches for lunch. Reminds me of when I was little and my mother and I went to baby or bridal showers, they aways served these sandwiches. Nice memories.

I did both. I watched a movie, then went and got gas and spent some times outside.

Computer repair shops always have used CPUs; places like Best Buy often have them, too. He might be able to buy one that way and avoid the online financial stuff altogether.

Re: helping him learn how to use it, it seems to me you could just teach him general computer use and common programs and not get into the building's business at all. Someone in the office should teach him that. They would probably appreciate him expressing interest in learning how to do his job more efficiently.
