Petty Vents

Well, I'm annoyed. I made a nice crockpot lasagna with some frozen and then defrosted Jimmy Dean Extra Hot Sausage, which I browned. Problem is, the sausage is freezer-burned. Cooked the lasagna most of the day on low, the noodles are perfect, the cheeses are just right, but the sausage just tastes nasty to me. Thankfully DH thinks it's great. I can't eat it.

Ok, so just to get that nasty flavor out of your mouth, gently fry up a perfect pork chop, with sweet spuds dressed with butter, and a side of your favorite green veggie. Season the pork chop with salt, pepper, and sage, and maybe top with a little apple sauce. There your go. Problem solved. Yoru hubby already likes the lasagna. Let him enjoy it. No reason you should suffer.

Sounds like a plan, Chief!

I should Have Sent It Back!

If I had known it would take Eureka to send the repairman the part needed I wouldn't have bothered to call them to begin with.Send that defect back.Refund my money.Pick another.

I just called the repairman to see if my vacuum was ready.I was rudely told that it will be fixed and ready when Eureka gets around to sending them the part.It's almost been a month.The guy sounded irritated that I had asked if it was ready to be picked up.

All I want is a clean house.Is that asking just a little too much?

Munky ain't happy.It's like when Mamma isn't happy, nobody's going to be happy! We all know that's a fact Jack!

Oh no, Munky - what a pain. Especially not OK to be treated rudely by the repairman. Is he on Yelp?

Have you noticed that customer services have gone down? Way down? It is disgusting what is going on. Used to be be you walk in a store a sales person runs to you. Nowadays you walk in a store, two of them are running away from, so they would not be bothered answering questions or even worse have to help you. Where is this country going?

It's bad at home improvement stores too. One lone employee pages someone to come to aisle 14 to assist me. 10 minutes later, noone showed. I just moved on.

I agree Charlie!

I try to do as much of my banking as possible at an ATM rather than deal with a human inside the bank. I also find myself doing more and more research on the computer before I go shopping instead of just walking into a store and asking for help. My assumption is that this is a calculated shift in the way we do business being developed by some highly paid corner office guys way up in the clouds of some gigantic office buildings in a land far far away!

While I'm on a rant I also get upset when a cashier just plops my change in my hand instead of counting it back to me properly. I was always taught to state the price of the item and then count back the change to total the amount of the bill that was offered for payment. I suppose the cashiers are no worse than those automated checkout machines that just spit your change back at you and order you to "PLEASE REMOVE YOUR CHANGE FROM THE SLOT BELOW"!!!

It won't be long before cash is a thing of the past, we will do all of our business on a mobile device and every new home will be equipped with a landing zone for drones to deliver our purchases. I can't wait for that day to come, we will all need to wear helmets when we leave the house!

personally i think it is the move away from decency as a whole. not just service, everything. modesty, honesty, you name it.

I like getting my metal change in that little grey container.
