Thanks, Z and CG I'm doing okay so far. With luck, I'll be home tomorrow in time to go to my weekly dinner out with friends, so I won't have to cook till Thursday

Urrrgh. 82 degrees in the appartment and the cat thinks it's cuddle time. I tried telling him he could only cuddle if he brought me an ice pack but he just looked at me in that typical condescending way that only a cat can manage. I'm pretty sure he was calling me stupid and telling me to shut up.

Same problem here. Latté considers it my problem that there is only a thin sheet instead of a quilt to protect my skin from her sharp, loving ministrations. And why the heck is that fan blowing in her face? So she pokes me full of holes and then leaves in a huff.

Well, the top button on my iPhone quit working. I can deal with that. I called the LOCAL number for the LOCAL Verizon store to see if I could get it fixed LOCALLY and got the whole menu of runarounds. After a half hour of this, and after stating to the autoserve that I wanted to talk to the LOCAL store rep, I was sent to Arizona and talked to a nice man with a heavy accent. He was able to patch me through to the LOCAL store, and was able to get a rep, who told me she would put me on hold for 2 minutes. 45 minutes later, she reappeared, apologized, looked up my account, and told me there was nothing they could do since I didn't get the insurance, unless I bought a new phone at full price.

Thankfully I'm eligible for an upgrade in August. What a PITA. You can't even call the LOCAL store directly and talk to a real person. Grrrrr.

To get to the LOCAL retail store, Google "Verizon and the city/state" where it's located. It will pop up with phone number, address and driving directions.

Same number, for everything. It's the only number for here. And I know where it is, I just wanted to find out if they could repair it here in town without having to bring it in and get told "no".

I miss the good ol' days when you could talk to a real person....

That's unfortunate. When I Googled 'Verizon nashua nh' I got three different store locations with different phone numbers within the Nashua area code.

I hear ya Dawg! That is why I refuse to learn to text. I like the sound of the human voice. My daughter texted me just once. When she called me and asked why I didn't answer, I just kept silent. She got the idea. You can't convey the same tone of your message when you just push buttons.
