    This may irk me for days to come, but I had my screen protector replaced the other day. It looked all smooth when he put it on. When I looked at my phone I noticed a circle that I thought would align with something once I use my phone.

    The circle doesn't align with anything! Not the call/answer button, no numbers, nothing that's useful to me. Just a random circle that's visible at most angles.

    My lack of willpower. :( DH was very thoughtful and kind and bought me a pint of Ben and Jerry's peanut butter cup ice cream yesterday. He knows I've been staying on a much healthier way of eating since the holidays??? He said he'd eat it but I know me. It wouldn't make it through another day of sitting in the freezer.

    And it didn't. :(

    The push for women in STEM. If they don't want to take computer science in college, stop pressuring them. Those who do are welcome with open arms and a plethora of support. At this point it's just shaming the women who aren't interested. Let women pursue what they want! Stop pushing them!

    I am SO mad right now I am spitting nails. Some of you might remember I mailed a Christmas package in Dec. to my dd and I insured it for 600 bucks. It got sent to a recovery center one city over from Seattle. So we filed the missing package claim, then I filed the insurance claim a few weeks ago. It was challenging to get any receipts together but I did have some. Plus I wrote them a letter, detailing every single thing that was in that package. Postage alone was $70. Plus the estimated cost of contents was $542. I just got a notice I'd be getting 15 effin bucks. Yep, 15.

    WTF???
    I have to appeal but don't have the first clue on how to do that. :( Plus obviously, I'll have to calm down first.

    This reminds me of my experience with FedEx last summer. I shipped 3 cases of equipment in Pelican equipment cases for a job, insuring each for $2500 (replacement cost). FedEx broke a piece of glass ($300) on the outbound shipment and another piece (different case) on the return. I filed separate claims for $300 each with documentation, pictures and receipts. They denied both claims with no explanation, even though the gear was insured and I had proof of damage.
    No words can express how angry I was.

    Oh good lord......insurance is the worse. :( They don't want to cover anything!! Did you do an appeal of any kind??? I'm going to as soon as I find out how. Searching USPS this a.m. I found a tidbit of info I wish I'd known before. Gift cards are NOT covered on lost claims; you have to appeal to the company itself IF you bought the gift card directly from the company. Many I simply picked up at the grocery store. There was only 1 I purchased directly from the place so I sent an email off to them.

    Why pay for insurance at all if they deny coverage, or just as bad, deny hoping you won't appeal?? My sister was denied a health insurance claim and knew she was in the right so filed an appeal, got the whole thing paid for. :/ Why should that have to happen in the first place?

    Yeh, I have NO idea where they came up with the 15 bucks. It's terribly insulting, to say the least. I know they're hoping I don't appeal. But I need to find a post office that'll actually help me. :( My local one is worthless. :/ As I mentioned above, gift cards are not covered.(Love that fine print that you have to wallow through pages to find.) But other stuff I definitely have proof of purchase, not to mention the postal receipt claiming it cost 60 bucks just to mail the dang thing. Course the cost of insurance isn't covered :/

    I'm still trying to calm down enough to formulate words without Bi!@hing the whole place out. ;)

    Whateverthehell happened to customer service anyways?? Besides this issue and our counter top people, I think I've used up my annual allotment of curse words. And it's only February.
