I've been to see a lawyer but they can't do much unless there is abuse of some kind and if I want to fight it I will have pay money I don't have right now. Just wish he could be reasoned with

As far as I am concerned it is abusive, having to use lice shampoo, etc 12 times in 2 years. Your daughter is being poisoned.

(((Hugs Snip))). You shouldn't have to put up with that and neither should your daughter.

Thanks Tax Luckily Caitlin is nearly old enough to decide what she wants to do about it herself. I hate sending her when she doesn't always want to go.

I was wondering how old she is and when she can decide if she wants to go or not.

She's 11 and she has to be 12 to decide. Just one more year to go.

I've been getting a call daily on my cell phone, an 888 number, it rings three times and then disconnects. I googled the number and it turns out that it is Verizon Wireless.

Yesterday, I was finally able to answer it. The lady on the other end asked if I would like to review my plan to see if it meets my needs. I said "no, every other plan you have is more expensive than the one that I have and I'll lose my unlimited data". Then she goes on to tell me how I'm not using all that much data, to which I reply "I don't use my spare tire either, but I'm not throwing it away". Then she asks if I would like to upgrade my phone, I said no, because then I would lose my unlimited data! I told her good day and as I was ending the call, she told me that I was eligible for a free iPhone. At that point, I raised my voice and said, "ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME, HAVE YOU NOT HEARD A WORD THAT I'VE SAID" and then hung up the phone.

Here is what really ticks me off. I am a loyal customer of 13 years, I pay a rate higher than most other companies, because where I live, they have the best coverage hands down. The fact that they are trying to dupe me into a plan that will cost me about $20 a month more, and give me less, infuriates me. Both of our smartphones are old enough that they are long since paid for, so we are just a huge cash cow for them at this point, almost all of the bill that I pay to them is pure profit. AND THEY WANT MORE!

Thanks for letting me rant!
