that's reason enough

The fact that every time I walk into my house now my dog isn't there to greet me and he's not here barking at every little thing trying to protect me anymore.

Not Upsetting just going freakin insane. If I get another stupid call from:

Them Hi, this is so & so from AT & T, who has joined with Bellsouth
Who there at your location takes care of your local phone service?

Me - I do

Them - Great. And your name is?

Me - Tina

Them - Hi, Tina. This is Craig, we would like to send a price quote to you and see if we cant save you some money.

Tina Thanks, but I have already talked with 3 people, this week. We are happy with what we have.

Craig Im sure. But what if, we could, save you some money? Whats your fax # and Ill send a quote on over and you can look at it and let me know. How many lines do you have ?

Tina 4

Craig Do you have Call Forward, ID, etc etc

Tina Yes

Craig Do you have DSL, blah, blah, blah

Tina Yes, T1 Line

Craig Great, Ill send that to you.

Tina Ok, bye

5 minutes later

Hi, Tina this is Craig, did you get a chance to look over our quote and see how much money we can save you? Did you notice ALL the credits you are getting. Almost $500.00, plus $100 gift card. How about your long distance?

Tina Yes, I saw all of that. Nuvox provides our long distance, we have 200 free minutes per line so we really dont have any long distance charges.

Craig Well, Im sure with all the savings we are providing you, your long distance charges will still come under the quote we gave you. How about I send over a form, for you to sign and well get you switched over today?

Tina Were happy with what we have, but Ill keep your quote and if I decide to change over Ill call you. Thanks Bye.

Whew, it really helped that I typed all this out

Hey Jester- next time do what my boss did last week.
Just repeat over and over that they are really getting fu**ing annoying.
No matter what they say in response- just repeat.
Because they will call you back no matter what. If they are going to continually waste your time at least have fun with it.................

Nobody's ordering pizzas today.

jester 07-27-2007 02:30 PM

I'm really tired of all the people out there who simply cannot operate their vehicles - whether it be subaru outback drivers who stop/yield inappropriately, or pickmuptruck drivers who can't stay in a lane (just pick one asshole, doesnt matter which, I'll gladly use the other), or teenage girls who are just generaly incompetant - you've all pissed me off today, and it's not even rush hour yet.

OlderSon was in minor car accident three weeks ago. Yesterday was driving home from body shop.

Into the back of a dump truck pulling out of construction zone. :smack:

Car totaled.

Girlfriend in hospital. (out now, sore, but intact thank god)

I'm done pouring money into his transportation options. Far as I'm concerned, he's a pedestrian now. Want wheels? Fine. You buy them.

jester 07-27-2007 04:20 PM

Glad to hear everyone is ok, except the car.

Ibby 07-27-2007 07:03 PM

This REALLY cute guy I just met
(Him: huh... nice bag.
Me: mm, nice hair.
That was the whole convo.)
...turns out to be fuckin' THIRTEEN.
I swear, he looks older than me. I'm real bad at this, I guess.

There is some kind of major accident or fire scene within a quarter mile of my house.

The road the runs next to my apartment complex was closed at my nearest cross street.

From my parking lot I could see some assortment of emergency vehicles and scene lights, which nicely highlighted the billowing smoke column.

I have no idea what was producing the smoke. Could have been as simple as downed powerlines, of course, but I've got power.

Most importantly, the 24-hour news station has absolutely nothing about this, not in the regular news, or in the traffic reports.

DanaC 07-28-2007 07:25 PM

jester, can I suggest just saying something along the lines of "look, let me stop you there. Thanks for the offer, but I am not interested, stop wasting your time on me and call someone who might give you an order. "

DanaC 07-28-2007 07:26 PM

BigV, that sucks. Glad nobody was seriously hurt.

My last grandparent dies yesterday. Paternal Grandma. Renal failure turns out to be a decent way to go. Hospice was involved and said she was in no pain. My mom was there when she passed. She had been breathing really shallowly, took three deeper breaths, then was gone.

Her husband died in 1970, she never remarried. She moved in with us in the early 80's to babysit when my brother and I were kids, as my dad got laid off fron John Deere and both parents had to go to work. Lived with us for about 12 years, then moved into an assisted living apartment complex just a few blocks down the road.

Things I'll remember about her: playing Kings in the Corner at the kitchen table; the distinct sound of her electric typwriter keystrokes as she wrote her many letters, her diamond heart necklace she wore (which she left to me, I just found out), the sound of metal knitting needles clicking as she worked on sweaters, blankets, hats and booties, her cornflake and red hot candy wreaths at Christmas. I'm sure I'll think of lots more.

I am sad, as this is my last grandparent and frankly I'm feeling very small in the big big world right now, but happy that she went so fast and it was not a traumatic passing.

Oh, and to add insult to injury, I just got my period about an hour ago.
