Here's an annoying story...
Wednesday (my day off) I woke up to a puppy who was having so much trouble with her legs that when I picked her up to put her outside, she fell on her face when I set her down. I gave her a pill, and waited. It took most of the day, but eventually she was back to 'normal'...and the two of us waited all day for our phone company to show up. Around noon, hubby called from his teaching gig that he got out of the blue (just for the ed class) to see if they had come. I said, 'no'. He said, 'I'm calling to bitch them out.' A few minutes later: 'they cancelled our appointment because we never returned a call to confirm it.' Now, why would THEY cancel it? What stupid policy has THEM cancelling b/c we didn't confirm an appointment we had begged for 3 days earlier?? Why would we cancel?? And how did they expect us to confirm when the whole reason they were coming out is b/c we were unable to get incoming calls?? How would we know they had called in the first place!? (We're switching phone companies, btw) So, after waiting all day and NOT taking more precious to the vet because of it...they rescheduled for later that day (between 2 and 4). Then, between 2:30and 3:30, the guy tries a half dozen things and then settles on the house's internal wiring...he just plugged the phone into the modem and said we need to have the house re-wired. That's just great.
On the upside...I'll get back to you on that one.


  1. ARGH! That sucks! I spent my whole day off last week arguing with our water company (because they lost our payment from June) Don't know if it is fixed yet or not. I didn't feel like wasting my time on them today. I have the bank statement showing where I paid, they will have to deal with it.

    Don't you hate having to waste your time and energy on people who can not do their jobs?

    I hope things work out for you.

  2. Stupid, stupid, stupid! Yeah, so, you need to have your house re-wired. Couldn't possibly be the morons that get trained for a day when they first get the job, then never again, right?
    Did I mention: STUPID?

  3. phone companies are THE WORST. I keep getting bills that are for phone and internet lines i didnt even order. if I didnt look carefully at the bills I would have just gone ahead and paid them! they are sneaking and annoying. btw im writing out some questions for you for next weeks talk to me tuesday. where can I send them?
