Our Favorite Requests of The Week

“Can you tell the New York Times that no paper was delivered this weekend or last weekend? We received a paper this Saturday but that’s it. Thanks, Fin!”

→ Ask Fin to track down your paper or other subscriptions when they don’t arrive as expected.

“Hey Fin, can you find a place near me where I can get a fresh-pressed juice or a healthy meal in the next 10-15 minutes? Thank you!”

→ Ask Fin to find the restaurants in your area that have the options you’re craving so you don’t waste time on your lunch break.

“Fin, I need to order some kind of gong or bell to ring in the office every time we make a sale. It should be fairly loud so we can hear it, but we also don’t want to buy anything expensive. Can you come back to me with a few options?”

→ Reach out to Fin next time you’re in the market for a gong, or any other office supplies, to get a list of your best options.

“Fin, can you find out how a newborn in the U.S. gets a U.S. passport and a Brazilian passport? What documents and pictures are needed as proof? Also, what’s it gonna cost? Thanks!”

→ Ask Fin to get you a list of the documents you’ll need on-hand when applying for a new passport or heading to a DMV appointment.
