Phone trees...

Okay, so I call webhosting directly, because, surprisingly (feel the sarcasm) the extension I have doesn't work. I follow the little phone tree prompts...that specifically say "talk to a webhosting cust serv rep"....(I'm thinking, yay! Bingo!)....and get a dial up rep? Uhm. Hello? He gives me an extension, different than the one I have..which, doesn't work. Natch.
Now, I know that phone trees are intentionally confusing, no matter which company you call, but give me a break. This is bordering insanely ridiculus. No wonder I'm getting yelled at for this more often.
Oh..here's another thing. Why do customers always have to argue usage with me? I tell them, we don't charge for usage (being as most accounts are unlimited), we charge for the availability. Invariably, I get .. "Yes, I understand...but, I didn't use the account...." *blinkblink* You sure you understand? Do you have any idea how idiotic you sound with that statement?

More Randomness...

So, my mom tells me over the weekend that she's joined a group. Events and Adventures, which is a singles group. I think this is great...hopefully it'll get her out of the house more. I'm not enthused about the cost, but, hey, its her hard earned cash - if she feels its worth it, I won't complain. Maybe she'll meet someone...a new stepfather! haha! She gave me some stuff to look over for it, to show me what she was planning on going to - it seems like they have a great number of fun events planned. Some aren't that expensive either. If I were single, I'd consider joining. Mom did say it was $1000/yr approx. So, even were I single, not sure I could afford that. Of course, since I'm not single (grin) I don't have to consider whether its worth it or not.
Oh..and Happy Birthday mrcorn. I hope things are looking up for you.

This morning...

I got to carpool in the morning with thoabath for the first time. Had to take munchkin (his roomie's daughter) to daycare. No big deal..its not that far away, and there's a freeway enterance right there. I think we got underway about 8:30 this morning...because, well, I wasn't ready. I don't do mornings well. Got to the daycare..its for the FAA (?)(I think that's what Sandybear said) ...well, anyway, government. There's a security guard there, which isn't a biggie..kinda nice actually. He got Sandybear's federal id, then asked for my id. Then he made me open the trunk to search. It's not a huge deal to me..but, I can only hope that when the guard starts getting used to me, he'll let me in without searching my trunk. It was rather interesting - I've never had that particular experience before. Sandybear felt kinda bad...but, it wasn't a big deal. We got in okay, dropped munchkin off and went about our merry way. It didn't take long to get to work - we left the daycare about 8:45 and were in Factoria about 9. Not bad at all. Got to drive by all those poor sucka's that don't carpool. MWUHAHAHAHA. It was great. I even stopped to get coffee, though I have to cut back on that particular expense. I like being to work early though.
Other news...I got an email notice that my touch drawing kit will be sent out today. Yay! I can't wait to get that. I have to call UPS too, they need my signature for my book. I'm not home at the times they deliver, so I need to let them know to bring it to work. The book is for my course...I need to print those out too and start doing them. *sighs* It would be so much easier if I had internet service at home. But, no.

Welcome krow to my journal. Pull up a chair, pop some popcorn, relax and enjoy the ride.....

I wish these people would just go away...

I'm tired of answering the phones. I'm tired of talking to absolute morons. I just had a guy tell me he doesn't *have* a password to his account. Really? Is that why you're calling to get it from me for webmail? Oh..then, the pissy sigh when I ask him to verify his account by the last 4 of his cc. I'm so sorry I asked for verification before giving out things like your password. Next time, I'll just hand it out to any schmoe that calls. *grump* I want to go home.
