I called to get gas prices on 6/27 at 11:25 AM. The phone rang 30 times before the attendant picked it up and set it on the counter while he was talking to a customer for 2 minutes, then hung up. I called back immediately thinking it was accidental. After 30 more rings, I gave up.

If you want to avoid entering the hosting hell dimension, here are 10 potential entertaining glitches, and how to avoid them.
If you're a guest at the season's events, make sure that you're part of the celebration, not part of the problem
Great experience from the quote to the installation! I paid exactly what was quoted, the installers showed up exactly when they said they would and even after a mistake on the color door was made, it was resolved in a timely manner. I would recommend this business with confidence.
First off the guy was very rude to me. Acted like I needed to speed right passed my order even tho I was the only customer. Secondly, 90 percent of the Orange chicken I ordered got left on my plate because it was one of 3 things, a very hard piece of stale batter, a very tiny dry piece of chicken covered with too much batter OR literally a fluffy looking piece I'd bite into that was hollow. I basically was served batter coated in Orange sauce. Just pass this place up if you plan on eating anything fried. Not to mention they are very rude.
The guy ignored me and went to the next customer seconds after me asking to taste the orange chicken, then was pushy trying to rush me when my turn came back around even tho no one was behind me. I changed my mind and left due to him being so rude.
Tracey,My daughter moved in apartment #3309 on August 19th, 2017. The apartment was dirty, and thats an understatement. We were very disappointed to say the least. Between the two of us we spent four hours cleaning and spraying everything with Lysol. Here is a list of issues: dirty kitchen counter tops, dirty exterior and interior cabinets, mold spores in all bottom kitchen cabinets (which could be a potential health hazard). The cabinet under the kitchen sink smelled moldy and musty....spider webs, all light fixtures had dead bugs in them, stains on living room carpet (which could also be a health hazard if these stains are from animal feces and not properly treated), stains on sofa, debris on kitchen floor, dirty baseboards throughout, stuff laying between refrigerator and cabinet, dishes left in kitchen cabinets, several holes in walls from toggle bolts in master bedroom that should have been spackled.Unfortunately we did not read the apartment reviews (about 80% negative) before signing the lease. If so, it would of raised a red flag for sure.I am attaching photos for you to view and awaiting a quick response from you.Also, there were 5 piles of dog poop in the grassy area at bottom of stairs. I sure hope that you strictly enforce cleaning up after pets in the future. Disgusting.
These are the worst apartments I've ever lived in. There are so many reoccurring maintenance issues that go unattended, it's absolutely ridiculous. My air conditioning goes out at least every other week, I have water leaking from the ceiling, my plumbing is always stopped up. The office staff is very unsympathetic to maintenance problems. I can't wait until my lease is over, I'm so ready to move!!
I really wanted to give this place ZER0 stars, but it made me put at least one...This is a nice property, but the absolute WORST management i've ever experienced in my life. When I first signed up to move in the placed me with a roommate. I was happy and we were coordinating for our apartment. A week later I get a letter stating I have new roommates and this happened a good four times... After moving in I was paired with two freshman that were NOTHING like what i had asked for when I filled out that roommate pairing sheet. I then knew that this apartment was VERY scatter brained. Living with these girls were intolerable and management said they couldn't do anything about it until something bad happened. Soon after.. something bad happened and the cops were called. The girls were breaking all the rules of the complex and I was then forced to move out... I started getting random bills and was then told by the manager Leslie, that I was no longer allowed to use the facilities (even though I was paying for them). When I was moved into a new apartment she refused to have the room cleaned from the previous tenant... there was a bug problem, a smell issue, and much more... Thank goodness I was able to break my lease with no penalty thanks to my lawyer... He explained this to be one of the worst apartment complexes he's ever dealt with... The gates surrounding the apartment do NOT close as they are supposed to, so whoever wants to come in can do so freely. theft and vandalism occur on a normal basis here and nothing is ever enforced. IF you ever need help with ANYTHING be prepared for a huge run around... nothing will ever get done. If you put a maintenance request in, give it at least a week or two to get done... Also, they come into your apartment whenever they feel like it. I was homes one day in my bedroom and they didn't know... I caught them going through my kitchen drawers and my roommates room when she wasn't home... I didn't feel safe at this apartment which is why i did my all to leave. I find it pretty funny that out of 11 comments only 3 are good and the three are written by staff of campus quarters... lolThis property could do great things if it got rid of Leslie Ramirez as a manager. She is rude, unwilling to help, a liar, and will do whatever it takes to rip you off. She is the most UNPROFESSIONAL person i have ever dealt with. If I would have read the reviews of Campus Quarters before renting, I would have NOT moved here. This place is a scam and a very awful experience for anyone that comes and goes...
Needed a garage door opener installed. Less than 24 hours it was done. The guys worked quickly during my lunch hour, so I gave them the rest of the day off! Invoice #168018. Avoid a company called $$$&&& and light.
They did a great job, he fixed the problem that I had with another garage door company, he knew what he was doing. They respond quickly that's what I like.
Lived here over 3 years nice and pleasant great staff clean great place to live and friendly neighbors
Marco Electronics performed an in home repair to my LG 55 inch OLED TV. Gilbert the repair technician did a phenomenal job. He was able to diagnose the problem over the phone with nothing more than my description of the problem and a picture. He ordered the part and showed to my house on time of the scheduled repair. Gilbert the technician was very polite and professional. He completed the repair in about 20 minutes by replacing the main board. I was very impressed with the quality of service I received, the knowledge and professionalism of the technician, and the high standards and customer service of Marcos Electronics. The purpose my review was just to share my experience and let others know about the quality of their services.
Some people use their garages to keep their cars safe. Others use them to store boxes of books and home decorations. No matter how a garage is used, there is one key factor they all must have in common to protect the precious items within: A functional garage door.
There is no shortage of variety when it comes to choosing a garage door. Options include different materials, styles and lifting or opening methods, each with its own unique pros and cons.
When deciding on the right garage door, the first thing to consider is the style.
Garage Door Styles
The two most common styles of garage door include:
The benefits of swing-out doors are their classic look and the ability to keep the garage ceiling clear for added storage space. The major downside of this style is the amount of time it takes to manually lock, unlock, open, and close them. They can be manual or operated by a remote control.
Perhaps the most common and recognizable style is the roll-up garage door. These features are much easier to automate than their swinging counterparts, making them a preferred choice for many homeowners. However, ceiling space must be sacrificed to make room for the door when open. These are typically automatic, but manual models are also available.
Aside from these popular models, homeowners can choose between:
Once you've determined the style of garage door, you can move on to choosing the material. Some considerations you might keep in mind include:
If you're looking for something that will withstand the test of errant basketballs and driver's education students, a vinyl door might be your best bet. These doors are hard to dent or break and don't need much maintenance to keep up their appearance. They are usually built on steel frames with polyurethane insulation and come in a limited variety of colors.
Wood can stand up to plenty of the abuse a garage door may be subject to from time to time. They are also attractive doors with many color options. They can be painted or stained at the factory or on site. One of the biggest downsides to wood garage doors is the upkeep - they may need to be repainted or restained regularly to maintain the color.
Fiberglass doors can break with a strong impact but in general are pretty sturdy. Like vinyl doors, they are built on steel frames and insulated with polyurethane.
Wood composite doors have the same aesthetic advantages of wood doors but are less expensive. They usually have a wood frame and are filled with polyurethane insulation. Some may have fiberboard skins and are designed to closely mimic wood.
It doesn't take much to dent these doors, but they aren't very expensive and require little maintenance. However, they are subject to rust, especially in damper climates.
These doors can also easily dent but don't rust. They are also lightweight, which is ideal for larger garage doors, as more weight on such a large frame could put added stress on the lifting or opening mechanism.
Five basic designs of garage door openers are available to homeowners. Two are relatively recent developments, while the other three are fairly standard and have been around for decades.
One of the biggest advantages of the direct-drive opener is how silent it is. With the motor being the only moving part of this machine, it's said to be the quietest model available. This is one of the newest designs and was developed in Germany.
Another relatively recent design, this model is ideal for a homeowner who wants to keep the ceiling clear for storage. It is set up on the wall closest to the garage door as opposed to on the ceiling, like most garage door openers.
This opener is powered by a motor that rotates a threaded-steel rod on which a trolley rides. It is a relatively quick garage door opener, though most garage doors close at the same rate for safety reasons. Additionally, they are said to be the easiest to maintain, given that they don't involve many moving parts. However, these doors have a history of problems when the temperature quickly changes, and they are noisy. If there is an apartment or office above a garage, screw-driven openers may not be the best option.
These use a chain similar to that of a bicycle. The chain pulls a trolley connected to a bar that lifts the garage door. It can be noisy and cause vibrations, given the metal-to-metal contact, though more recent models are said to be a little bit better about this.
The function of belt-driven openers is the same as chain-driven openers. The only major difference is that instead of metal chains, these door openers are built with a belt made of fiberglass, steel-reinforced rubber, or polyurethane. This brings down the noise level but increases the price.
As with most things mechanical, garage doors may begin to develop problems after a few years of use. Many typical problems are easily identified and, with the right knowledge or help from a professional, aren't too difficult to fix.
Transmitter or Remote Won't Work
The first thing you should check in this instance is the transmitter battery. Dead batteries are often the culprit, though there are other causes seen as well. If the batteries are in good shape, take a look at the cables and tracks to make sure they are clear, clean, and sturdy.
Door Doesn't Close All the Way
If you notice a gap at the bottom of your garage door after closing it, try resetting the close limit. Your door might be set to close at a higher point than the ground. It might also be set too low, and when the door reaches the ground, the sensor reacts in the same way it would if an object was obstructing its path: by retreating upward.
Door Shakes When Opening
This could be caused by debris on the tracks or wheels. Clean these first to see if this is the problem. If not, the springs might be stretched unevenly or worn out.
Door Squeaks When Opening
The rollers are most likely dry and need to be lubricated.
Door Closes Faster Than Usual
A quickly closing garage door could easily become a safety hazard. The problem is usually springs that are too stretched out. They should be replaced by a professional. Working with these large springs can be difficult, and they can quickly turn into dangerous, fast-moving metal whips.
Door Makes a Strange Sound at the Same Point Every Time It's Used
This might mean your tracks are either dented, falling, or otherwise misaligned. This is not just annoying; it's dangerous. Misaligned or damaged tracks can cause the door to cease working or to fall off its tracks. If your door seems to be working fine overall, feel free to inspect the issue further. But if your door is stuck, slanted, or looks unstable, call a professional who will have the right tools to fix the problem.
Door Sticks When Opening or Closing
If you begin to notice this around a change in seasons, check the lubricant on the tracks. Weather patterns will affect lubricant's effectiveness. Dirt or debris on the tracks could also be the cause; make sure they're clear and clean. If the tracks look fine, make sure the doors are hung evenly.
It's not uncommon for a garage door to have a problem or two every once in awhile. But, if the same issue keeps coming up or one cause has led to a variety of problems, it might be time to consider replacing your door altogether.
For someone who's familiar with tackling tough home improvement projects, installing a garage door might be a viable do-it-yourself project. It'll likely take the better part of a Saturday, and it's not a bad idea to ask for help, especially when taking off the old door.
But if you're even a little bit wary of taking on such a large task, reaching out to a professional would probably be a smart move. On average, a new garage door installation will cost around $1,000. Most homeowners end up paying somewhere between $740 and $1,400, including the installation and the door itself.
Likewise, a custom garage door could be a project that an experienced wood or metal worker can take on with the right materials, tools, and knowledge. However, for the amateur DIY-er, contacting a professional might be the best way to go. If you are unfamiliar with the project, the weight alone could prove to be an issue. Depending on the size, it could weigh as much as 200 pounds, though some smaller or uninsulated ones could be less than 100 pounds.
To keep your garage door functional for as long as possible, try to inspect it every so often to ensure everything is working properly. A problem that goes too long without attention can only get worse and wind up costing you more to repair or replace the door.
About once a month, carefully observe the door as you open and close it. If you hear or see anything unusual, take a closer look at it. The regular motion could easily loosen up some of the hardware, so take a few minutes to tighten everything up. Also, be sure that tracks, tires, and other moving parts are properly lubricated.
If your door is painted, make sure it isn't chipped or peeling. Deteriorating paint on a wooden door could let moisture in, which leads to warped doors, while a steel door could rust if water gets in.
