Yesterday I said outloud to myself.. I feel a rant coming on..LoLOpen-mouthed
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."Sarcastic  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! Smile
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. Smile
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?Smile
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.
Sorry it is so blurry I am still getting used to
the settings on this new camera.
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.. Confused

  1. Good Morning Sis!!! Top of the morning to ya!I get the robo calls occasionally from stores I have a relationship with asking me to buy an extended warranty/protection plan/. If they think THAT, the robo calls will persuade me, they are more than sadly mistaken. It infuriates me instead. IF you can get a person..you can try to stop these calls by asking them to take you off their call list after explaining you already know they can call you as you have a relationship with them. Asking nicely has done the trick with one whose name starts with an S.

  2. I don’t think you were rude in fact I say thanks for doing that. We’ve had the same sort of thing and even had threats for legal action when there was no reason at all…computers are only as smart as the company runnng them it appears. I like that top picture of the flowers best. I’ve found that it’s really tough to have a clear picture especially on Manual setting but if you don’t use Manual it’s easy to have an overexposed shot…practise, practise, practise LOL!

  3. Great rant. Haven’t had any of those kind of calls as I don’t have cards for any stores. It takes a while to get used to a new camera and I can see you are not doing to bad already. Nice pictures.

  4. Sometimes you have to be abrupt with those people on the phones! The same thing has happened to us too. Loved the pic with the flowers—so colorful and crisp. Keep shooting and you’ll figure it out. Good luck with your Mom’s appointment. You may be pleasantly surprised!
