What is it exactly that you would like Amazon to do?

Not sure. Why give us coins that can't be used. If I could pay the tax on my own then I could get the app. But they won't let me do that. That makes the coins they are giving me useless. Am I right or wrong? I'm new at this. Thanks for your help.

I forgot to reply to your post and posted a new one.

Then don't use them. You aren't being forced to use them or buy more (although buying more would save you money).

You can use the coins, just not for the app you want. You'll have to choose another app or purchase coins to cover the tax.

Kessa, why get a bonus if it's not usable? I know I'm not being forced to use them. Don't be silly.

Handbag Junkie, guess I will look around for a cheaper app. I had read a post from someone in another discussion about getting the Office Suite Pro for 500 coins. I had my mind set on that since it's something I use daily. Then to find out I couldn't do it was disappointing. Guess I could look around for a cheaper app. Hadn't searched the apps much. Surprising to hear there are cheaper ones.

Handbag Junkie, Thanks for the heads up.

You CAN use the coins, just not for a $4.99 app. Seriously, first world problems.

Artist, if you only knew me. I'm so tight with money.... the purchase of a tablet shocks everyone I know. I know there are more problems in this world. Don't remind me...

I guess I should apologize to everyone in this forum. I thought this was a place to get help. Not to be ridiculed. I've seen so much of that going on in these forums. Maybe I can find help doing a web search. Sorry to have bothered everyone!

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 21, 2013 11:24:47 PM PST
But you didn't ask for assistance; you voiced a complaint.

And OF COURSE Amazon wants you to buy more coins. That's the point of the "carrot".

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 21, 2013 11:33:13 PM PST
You're right. I came at this bass akwards. Under too much stress these day. I need to find a different way to "word" things. I know it sounds silly but if I'm given something I expect to get it. It's back to the "being tight with money". I'm losing my husband soon according the doctors. Six months at best.

Sorry. Just felt the need to get that out. Not telling anyone we know. So I will tell people I don't know. Thanks everyone for listening. And to those that don't want to hear it. Sorry. Can't afford a shrink. LOL! Have a good evening everyone!

Sorry to hear about your husband - that's a really tough thing to have to go through.

The Artist says:
I'm sorry about your husband too.

Just remember that the only thing we have to go on over the internet is the words you use and the attitude you are expressing with those words.

Thanks for your kindness Kessa and Artist. I think we should stop following this post now. It's a Kindle HDX forum not an "All about me" forum. Maybe I will meet up with you again in another forum. Kind of looking forward to it.

It's a Kindle HDX forum not an "All about me" forum.

Correction - it's a Kindle Forum, but this forum is kinda an all-you-can-eat & just about anything goes. Look at some of the threads on here. A lot of them have groups of people that chat & talk about whatever. =)

It's fun to get to know the people on here - I have made several really good friends.

This forum is not like the Kindle Help forum or some of the others.

Oh, okay. Well, let me tell you all my problems. LOL Just kidding. Was thinking about going to bed. Don't sleep much lately though. Not sure what's going to happen during the night. I remember when the doctor gave my dad 18 months to live and he was gone in four months. So I worry all the time.

On a lighter note. Let me tell you this story.

With the holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving. As you may know some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time on the way home after a 'social session' out with friends.

Well, three days ago I was out for an evening with friends and had several cocktails, followed by some rather nice red wine. Feeling jolly I still had the sense to know that I may be over the limit. That's when I did something that I've never done before. I took a cab home!

Sure enough on the way home there was a police road block, but since it was a cab they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident. This was a real relief and surprise because I had never driven a cab before. I don't even know where I got it, and now that it's in my garage I don't know what to do with it!

ROFL! You have a good sense of humor. I can appreciate anybody who can laugh. =)

I understand about the not sleeping. Not knowing is always so hard.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 22, 2013 12:36:27 AM PST
Laughing is the best medicine. Seems like I heard once that it reduces fat. Kind of like exercise. But I don't even have to go to "Truth or Fiction" to know that it's FALSE! My scale told me so. I'm sure my doctor will confirm it on my next visit.

Children laugh (on average) 100 times a day - if adults did that, this would be a much better world. =)

With the problems we are having at our house, my husband and I have decided to enjoy every day. We find so much to laugh about. We're both a little crazy anyway. We make stuff up all the time. Just to have a good laugh. We are not going to sit around and be depressed when we are together. When he goes to bed at night reality sets in for me. So much to think about. My cousin lost her husband New Years Day last year. New Years Eve he was tired and went to bed and she stayed up to watch the new year come in on the television and when she went to bed a few minutes later, he was gone. Our 35th anniversary is New Years Eve. I'm sure it will go off without a hitch. Positive thinking. I actually told my husband he didn't have permission to leave me. He laughs at that. Then I told him his "Honey do list" was way too long to be going anywhere. We're going to make the most of it.

Good for you & your husband. It's important to spend whatever time we have with loved ones, living, not practicing for death.

I know that sounds weird, but some people actually do that when someone they love has been diagnosed with something that they will not survive or get the news...

I'm a realist - none of us are getting out of this alive, so we have to get whatever we can out of it while we are still here.

Laughing, loving, friends, being happy are very important to make that happen.

You hit the nail on the head. "Laughing, loving, friends, being happy are very important to make that happen."

Not sure what time zone you are in but I'm in Central Time. It's after 3 AM. I usually get up between 8 and 9. So I will sign off. You have a wonderful night! Enjoyed the conversation! Thank you.

I'm in Eastern Time - 4:25AM here.

If I missed you, hope you had a good sleep.

Sleep well.
