this a good vent. i finally found a painter to do my bedroom furniture. he showed up on time and went right to work . he is a whiz. only been working 6 hours and is 3/4 of the way through. he is an older man, a retired engineer. that furniture has been sitting primed for three months. at least part of it i primed. then i got sick. then one painter never showed up and another made a bid for three hundred dollars without ever seeing the stuff. this guy is doing it for ten dollars and hour. i couldn't be more please. it is going to be lovely and my bedroom will be redone. nice to have a good vent once in a while.

This was cruel on the part of that staff, IMO...
I'm sorry to hear that Wyogal, some staff are so focused on following the rules that they don't remember they can "color outside the lines" when it comes to customer service. A birthday song takes so little yet would have meant so much.

Wow am I dense. Can't believe I didn't pick up on Applebee's! LOL!!! We don't eat there anyway as Ken's two nastiest gallbladder attacks happened after eating there, but this gives me more reason not to do so.

My vent is really tiny and insignificant. I'd really like to be zit free sometime in my 40's. Didn't happen in my 30's so I'm moving up a decade. Sigh!

Try "Proactive", Alix, it really works for my 3 daughters...bigtime.

As for the above aforementioned restaurant...they should use this sign in their window:

Seriously Mollyanne? I generally ignore those ads as so much bunk. I'm not all that bad really, but I am never without at least one zit somewhere! Its frustrating because I never had ANY til I had kids of my own. My dr has offered any number of remedies, none of which work. We could go the antibiotic route but since I'm allergic to so many it doesn't make sense to mess with that for something cosmetic. I recently got a tip from my niece to use baking soda as a scrub on my face. Now I have two tips! Thanks!!

Seriously Alix. It's expensive but you don't need "all" of their products that they claim all work together as part of the plan. My girls just get two items...the Cleanser and the Repair. I think they skip the Toner and other superfulous items to save money. I think I read that the sun-affect is stronger when using the product so be careful or wear sunscreen. And check with your doc about your allergies before purchasing. But for my girls...it starts working right away...not "bunk". They offer a 60-day money back guarantee so keep your receipt!

Here's a link for online purchasing that seems like a good price but I couldn't find how long that will last you (i think it lasts my girls 3 months? They're in their 20's now and scattered from Calif to Belize so I can't ask them right now):

WHOA! Did you check the difference in US and Canadian funds? The $20 system becomes $70! Yeesh. I think I'll ask my friend in MN to order it and send it up here to me. Thanks for the tip!

after an hour i am still shaking with anger. i phoned a prescription in on friday, was told it would be delivered on tues. as they were closed on Monday. tuesday didn't come. i said ok they are probably really busy from being closed. no meds on tues or wed. this morning i called and was told out for delivery. no show. called was told be out tomorrow. then i lost it. i spoke to the owner and pharmacist after waiting an hour for him to call me back. the upshot is someone blew it on even putting the order in. he wanted to know who i talked to. how would i know, he has more than one employee. wanted to know if had heavy accent like him. no the person didn't and neither the one i talked to this am that said it was coming out. he said was sorry. big deal! no way to run a business. over a barrel, most don't deliver or charge for it. i told him glitches have been happening for about six months. he said he would get on it. also said would make sure was given to the driver himself. i don't drive and deliveries save me a lot of trouble as i have many medications and they are not all due for refill at the same time.

i hardly ever get this angry anymore, but this really threw me. if it had been one of the acute need ones, guess i would just be up a creek and most likely sick again.

there i feel better, a little anyway.

I went to this restaurant ones and it was, well at best mediocre and the service was if not rude than at least, gosh, not sure about a word in English to use. Well, they were talking to me, like as if I was an idiot. I did not leave a tip and left. But that is not what I am venting about right now. I just stumbled on the chef’s, I think he also is an owner, site. And he has a bunch of videos with recipes. Oh, my gosh. No wonder his stuff talked to me the way they did. The presentation he makes is exactly the same. He talks to audience like as we are a bunch of idiots. I had to scream at the computer. There is no way I am ever going back to that place. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
