    Aw, thanks Brem.  This is a perfect thread.

     

    My gripe that I want to vent about is having a will and still having to do probate.

     

    My mother recently passed away and we found out that we still have to do probate for her estate even though we have a will.  The only way to avoid Probate in Texas is to have trusts setup for the cars, bank accounts and houses.  Pretty bogus if you ask me.

     

    The Probate Lawyer said Texas has the easiest probate rules and it is the least expensive too.  It still is going to cost a bunch to do.

     

    So, if you don't have a will, get one since all assets go into probate and it even costs more.  If you can afford a trust, get that too so you can avoid probate all together.  Here's a big one for Texas at least and I'm sure it applies to other states as well.  Make sure your assets do not pass via will to minors (less than 18 years old) or it will have to go into Probate Court and then they appoint a guardian, which is very costly.  A guy told me that his two aunts did not have a will and the 24 relatives wasted $100K in lawyer fees fighting over assets and the $100K house sold for $10K since the lawyers wasted a bunch of time in Probate Court with selling it and it was vandalized.

     

    So my tip of the day is to plan now instead of suffering later.

    I am losing patience for those that list games here and NEVER check their email or the site for trades. I have 45 bucks burning in my trade pocket here and have tried 2 dozen trade requests with no answers back.

     

    GAARGH!!!

    Trading games is fun

    People who offer the same amount of credit listed by Leaptrade in a friend to friend trade for rare games. And people who offer you the same amount of credit listed by Leaptrade for new games that have about 20 people waiting in line for it. people, there are reasons games have long waiting lines and why know one is iffering to trade certain games!  So frustrating after a while. /rant

    The nerve of those people offering the correct amount of credit for what the games are priced.

    I kinda agree with TheBlueMeanie  

     

    I hate people messaging me that they have a game I want, but then they want to sell it to me for 25.00+ Credits more, just because that's the same price on Amazon,Ebay,Ect.

     

    Leaptrade has the prices there for a reason, because it's probably worth that much, and everything is a used game, why would I pay 60.00 credits for a used game?

    Same here, I've gone like three weeks without soda and have started working out. I don't know if I can have a single soda anymore, I'm scared I won't be able to stop

    Or people who post that they're selling a game more than what Leaptrade has it listed as, or asking for it at a lower price. Whenever I see that, I think that they don't understand economics very well.


     


    For me, I was trying to get a copy of Destiny, and I was caught in a loop of inactive users who signed up last year, listed games, and never came back. So their games are still up, and they have no trades. Fortunately for me, GameStop put up Destiny for $30 last week, so I was able to get my copy

    I get upset at all the disc only trades on the site. I know sometimes you lose the case or if you go to gamestop they give you a generic case but with all the disc only games available here especially for xbox one and PS4. I mean what are you doing with your cases people. My games are always in the case if I'm not playing them and on the shelf. Its just frustrating. I mean if I get a full package or at least disc+case I feel like the previous owner cared enough about that game to keep it in good shape. Probably because they had to pay for it themselves and did not have it bought for them. Not calling anybody out just saying.

     

    Ok whew....I feel much better now.

    Most of this is true, but I have heard of some people that lets say, buy a used or new game for 25.00 dollars, sometimes they might sell the case (Because I guess some people want cases) for 5-$10.00 dollars, and then sell the disk alone for 15.$20.00, thats $30.00 dollars right there if you got the maximum price on everything.


     


    So most of the time it is just Swindelers trying to get more money then what they bought it for, but theres nothing wrong with that, but I hate it when sellers call retired items "Rare" Rare items are not massively produced to the public.
