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.

We used to have a couple of Verizon stores here, now down to one, and they don't answer their own phone.

I wouldn't expect good service from a business that doesn't answer its phone.

In my mind, it's not only inconvenient for customers, but what happens if it's an emergency for a store employee, and someone who works at the store needs to be contacted? They'll have to talk to Arizona, then be routed back to the store.

They're very nice in person. I'll have to ask them for a workaround the next time I'm in the store.

Many thanks to the well wishes that came upon me .. I am doing much better now.

My petty vent is the prednisone.

It tossed me back a few years and re-introduced me to hot flashes and mood swings and that's a re-introduction I really did not need !

It is subsiding now and I only have 2 more days of single tab each day but I think my DH and dogs are still a bit gun shy LOL

I had a SIL that had Lupus. She was on Prednisone for most of her adult life. I saw the hell she went through. I have Psoriasis and anytime I have gone to a new dermatologist, the first thing they do is give me a blood test for Lupus. It always comes back Positive. They then want to schedule more tests. No Way! I have seen what she went through and as far as I am concerned the results of the blood tests are a False Positive. I have no desire to go through the tortures of hell. And other than the blood test, I have no other symptoms of Lupus.

I was given Prednisone eye drops when I had the cataract surgery. Fortunately it was only for one week. So I can sympathize with not only you but your family as well.

That is a tough one to be on. Glad you are almost finished.
