Cell Phone Shots – Volume III
July 16, 2009 by admncc
My cell phone was back in action this week. I have to admit; I really enjoyed the comments on the first two posts and was eager to find some new content.
I decided to use two pictures today. Both of which I think you’ll enjoy.
My daughter and I were playing miniature golf the other day. As we waited between holes, the local police made a traffic-stop near the course. The officers were talking to the female driver and ended up having her sit on the cruiser’s bumper while they searched her car. Take a look at this picture and tell me if she looks guilty of something or not. My thought is that I don’t want her playing poker with me the next time I need to call a bluff…
I live in Ohio and last year there was an ongoing issue between payday lending stores and the State. Some payday lenders were charging upwards of 300% interest on loans and it was causing some consumers to not be able to get out of the loan cycle. So the State stepped in and after a long battle, made the interest lower and across-the-board. Of course, by the time that happened, there were so many payday lending stores out there, that we knew some would go out of business. This is what happened to the store next to my barber shop. Hey, at least they were honest…
If you have any cell phone shots you want to submit and have posted, let me know.

If a payday lending shop is closing in Lorain County, then you KNOW our economy is in shambles…
I appreciate their honesty. I never know what’s going to close next around here.
aaaaaaaa hahaha. “unrealistic”
seriously those stores are the biggest scam of the century. they should all be forced to shut down. then again, if people are that stupid to repay something at 300% interest then maybe they deserve it.
Thanks for visiting me today! And these pics are truly worth a thousand words…poor girl up top…she looks in a WORLD of misery.
It’s kind of hard to be a payday lending company with fewer and fewer people experiencing “paydays”… Over 500,000 less paydays this week alone. Think of how it will help the environment to have to print less pay checks…that’s more trees to suck up CO2.

I play poker and enjoyed your joke about the lady. Yup, if body language could speak. Ha!
The second sign is honest and funny!
As for the girl on the bumper. She’s probably thinking, “why didn’t I just stay home?”
Very funny what you said about the poker bluff.
I really love the cell phone shots you post, Im happy to see them back in action.
As for the bumper chick, Im going to assume she received some new bracelets that day.
As for the small business issue, it doesn’t surprise me. I use to have a guy that worked out of Ohio for me and there were always some kind of crazy things or new tax they would hit us with for hiring an employee from Ohio.
Some of your discriptions of Payday Loans are very miss leading. First 300% interest is miss leading. These loans are for 2 weeks in lenght, they charge $20 or so for the serving. Now I know that if you calculate one of these for a full year that 300% would be correct, but they are 2 week loans. If you were to use Pawn Shops as an equivalent. The intest rate would wind up being similar. Pople have a unique way of twisting things to make them look the way they want then to look. That’s why so many people are dupped buy politicians.
Bob, thanks for visiting and commenting. You didn’t waste any time jumping into the debate. Very cool.
Actually, I disagree with you on part of what you said. Everything I read on this topic suggests that prior to the legislation being introduced, there was no cap on the interest and some lenders were indeed charging obscene interest rates. Part of it may have been describing the compounded interest, but I certainly meant to say the 300% and wasn’t intentionally trying to be misleading.
