Catching up here at wordpress.. so much going on here and no time to stay on line much. Tinkering with the new camera and learning it’s ins and outs. I have a long way to go looking at the pictures below..
Too many phone calls.. those ROBO calls from the stores to
make a payment on your bill or else!!. The bill was LESS THAN
$50. and was paid, but the little bitty store computer doesn’t know it.
I must say never having had that situation before, that the method
works. Early in the morning, late at night, during dinner, while you
are gone. RANDOM is right. and insistent. Finally a real LIVE PERSON
called. I was shocked to hear a real VOICE on the other end of the
phone line. I told the lady nicely..”that account has been paid off.
if you check your records closer you will see it has been closed and
I no longer have the card to your store.” Long pause.. she checks and
comes back to me.. “When and what kind of payment did you make?”
I told her. “I paid the account off in full IN CASH in the STORE
a week ago!”.. Long pause again.. OH YES.. I see there was a payment.
I said YES.. a week ago and your calls keep coming.” Please
check your records closer. She apologized for the call and asked the reason
I closed the account.. I said “I do not shop there any longer.. I prefer
another store, thank you .. have a nice day.”.. and HUNG UP!
Was I too rude? I just made my point perfectly clear. Sometimes a person is
not aware and then sometimes a person just isn’t paying attention to the
details. Automated calls don’t know anything.. REAL PEOPLE should
check their records.
Today I ventured out with the new camera.. on a quest to get new
shots of some of the autumn color. Instead I came across this bridge
in full bloom! Those blue glories are as large as my hand.
HUGE! The fields show some brown as they are getting ready
to be harvested.. but the trees have a long way to go yet.
Out in the country I came across a GOAT farm.. this was just a few.
I saw at least 50 in the next field. Wonder if the farmer makes cheese?
I came across these guy wading in the river near the park. That
water is so cold. The temps here ran over 80 today so I guess they
could survive that pretty well.
Well that was my Tuesday.. Today I take Mom
to her checkup.. I fear it won’t be pretty. She has
really been off her diet a lot and wants sweets all the time.
We will see..
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!
