I'm on the back side of 50 now so I've been getting in some practice at being a grumpy, old, lady with some of these folks that we purchase services from.
First on my shit list is Direct TV. Three calls in 4 days about a screen that was going blank off and on, and I finally made them understand that I'd done all their tests and they'd best send someone to fix whatever was wrong or I was going to change satellite TV providers. They finally sent a repair man out today.
Second in line is VERIZON. I hate Verizon almost as much as I hated Alltel.... Thinking on it a bit,,,I would probably hate any and all of those wireless telephone companies because they are All only interested in customer VOLUME and not a bit about customer SERVICE. I got so tired of their crappy website, and their even crappier customer service, that I gave up and let my son give his Dad his old phone instead of dealing with those people. James dropped his phone in his glass of ice water and killed it thus causing the pain and aggravation with VERIZON! I'm gonna make my phone last as long as possible just to piss them off.
I've saved Waste Corporation for last. My overstuffed trash container is still sitting beside the road waiting for a tractor to come by and knock it over into the ditch and strew garbage everywhere like they did last week when WASTE CORPORATION was late picking it up. Trash pick up day is supposed to be Monday but lately it's been mostly when they get around to it. Of course, they charge you a month in advance for these special services. I believe Tom J. Fatjo, Jr. , Jerome M. Kruszka, Charles A. Casalinova, and Tom J. Fatjo, III should get up off their corporate management asses and take a walk on the trashy side to see the crappy service their customers have to deal with on a regular basis.
Ok, I'm done bitching for the moment.
I hope everyone else is having a better week.
