    All this Covid etiquette stuff, can't deal with it. :(

    Wondering why my dog's prescription from Chewy hasn't been shipped or I haven't been notified then come to find out there was that one more click I neglected to click. :( They really need to put those click buttons in neon colors and huge with a notice that says 'click here to place order stupid'. :p

    Woodpeckers destroying the cedar trim on my house. Give it a rest already.

    AMERIPRISE!!!

    My mother died a few years ago and I inherited part of an ira and have to take a distribution every year. EVERY YEAR I try and get it direct deposited and EVERY YEAR they suck at doing what I want.

    They also suck at telling me what they did with my money (invested it when I just wanted straight distributions and to be done with it when the money was gone) which means I still have to amend some tax returns because I had no idea I had 1099 DIVS.

    The fact that as of right now my cable has been out for 48hrs and they can give me no estimate when it will be fixed.
    I pay so much, I’m going to try and get them to refund me the days I had no service.
    Why should I pay for a service I didn’t receive.
    It’s the principle dang it.

    I just tried doing that with tracfone and the phone protection plan I've had for years even tho I only used the phone like twice but no go.

    You'll probably have better luck tho! :)

    Oh, and also irked that the office christmas dinner is ok to start back up again.

    It's especially irksome because of the whole boss hellbent on retiring thing and how I never liked how these dinners turned into his/his few staff/and his much more pub couples who are also clients.

    Being sent a text from someone I've had no contact with since early last year. I went no contact on them (I ghosted them and I'm not sorry about it) because they had some problematic behavioral traits I didn't want to be around. Including, but not limited to:
    • Extremely violent outbursts when things didn't work out. To the point of throwing dishes or items across a room.
    • Had a tendency to make "mountains out of molehills". Arguments happened because a slight was perceived where one wasn't intended.
    • Also only "heard what they wanted to hear". I could say something and have an argument happen because again, a slight was perceived and they "inferred" what I was saying as opposed to actually *listening* to what I was saying.
    • I felt like I was constantly walking on eggshells just so I wouldn't upset them or say the wrong thing. It made for really forced conversations.
    • Also, this person maintained some pretty crappy double standards. They could go "no contact" for two days and it wasn't a slight, but if I did the same thing either because I didn't feel like texting/talking or was busy, I'd get an earful.

    So yes, I got a text two days ago that simply said "Because this is my new number.. and my door is always open to you". I don't give a flip if the door is open, I walked through and out it two years ago and never looked back.

    Did we have fun times and a lot of great conversations? Yeah. There are parts I miss, but I don't miss feeling anxious, berated and on edge every time I talk to this person. Mentally, it put me in a really negative space that just overshadowed everything else.

    I figured this person would get the point when I blocked their number, blocked them on all social media, hid my social presence and never responded to the letter they wrote me (snail mail, even!).

    I think of the good times we had, but I don't want to go back to feeling like an animal trapped in a small box trying to appease someone else so they don't feel slighted.

    Honestly, I think you made a sound decision. You need to do what is best for you!

    Customers coming in with some technical issue with their bike but don't actually have the bike with them and expect some magical solution. Literally, there are like a thousand type of bikes and it can be so many things wrong with it, I don't know the components on every bike out there so I can only speak broadly about mechanicals. Don't get mad if I can't use my psychic powers to mend your bike.

    Self-entitled people expecting discounts. Like mate, you don't ask for a discount at the supermarket so why would you ask here? Why does Billy over there have to pay the RRP but you don't? Jeesh...

    Retail lol

    LOL I totally asked tracfone if I could get a refund on the years I spent on their phone protection plan (pay $5 or $6 dollars a month to keep the phone active but don't have to add minutes like you normally would) when I'd only used the phone like 3 times and the answer in chat was, "No."

    I laughed (because I actually did laugh) and said I had to try.

    They were.. when they were in this sort of argumentative/judgmental mood. Otherwise, they were a lot of fun to be around. Kind of a Jekyll/Mr. Hyde kind of situation, really. Never knew what would set them off to bring out the beast.

    My ds works at Home Depot in appliances. There are always people coming in asking for discounts. He doesn't have that authority, even if they do that type of thing(which pretty sure they don't). DS kindly told customer 'no sorry' but said he felt like telling him 'nope, that's the set price but you can have the GTFO discount'.

    Sending a private message to someone on mfp and having to verify by checking "hills and mountains" (which I apparently did wrong), then "traffic lights" (which I noticed just as I clicked 'Send' had a couple random boxes also checked - so wrong again) and then finally "images of taxis". This time I made my selections more carefully and noticed boxes I hadn't checked were checking themselves! I unchecked 2 boxes, then finally could send my message. Sheesh mfp, I'm perfectly capable of messing things up myself - I don't need your assistance in that area!
