    Funny part is, she expects I am going to call her back to resolve the matter.

    I am not.

    Don't ya love it when people lose their shit over their own mistake and expect someone else to fix it.

    today I got yelled at.

    Post by James.k.Polk on Mon Aug 10, 2015 9:00 pm

    A customer walked in to my store today.

    "I'm here to pick up my replacement phone."

    I'm instantly filled with dread. I have no phone replacement for the person/account this guy is talking about. I do research. We did, in fact, order a warranty swap replacement phone for the device... In March.

    We typically call the customer when the phone arrives. We leave a message if the customer does not answer. If no one shows up to get the phone within 10 days, we send the phone back. Those are the rules.

    It has been close to five months and NOW they're here to swap the phone...

    IN the meantime this kids iPhone 5C has a shattered screen and it looks like he tried to take the damaged glass off by peeling the metal frame that attached to the glass up and away. A damaged phone is not replaceable under warranty.

    I explain to the guy that A) we can't hold a replacement phone that long and B) we would not be swapping it today if we had it in the store.

    The guy leaves. Angry, but he goes.

    I have never tried it, but after this weekend I would be tempted.

    Friday after struggling with Windows 10 for a week I used the "go back to Windows 7" option. After following the directions it screwed my computer up completely. I had no mouse or keyboard to navigate, so no simple reload drivers option, was possible. I had to reset back to factory settings. I lost about 4 months of work. Most was backed up through mail so it's not a total loss, but still sucked and took hours to correct.

    Saturday was volleyball day. Got up at 5 am, drove a couple hours to North Richland hills. Sat in a gym and watched games until 1pm. Did some shopping for the dorm room got home and put the finishing touches on furniture for the same dorm room. After that I reloaded my mail on the computer so I could work this morning, Hit the shower at 12 am and was spent.

    Sunday up at 6am and loading the truck. On the road a little before 9 am to College Station. Got there unloaded, set up the room, then spent 2 hours driving around trying to find a bed frame. Since most stores were closed on Sunday, there was a lot of pull up, see they are closed, drive to the next. After not finding a bed we returned and did what we could to finish the room, grabbed a bite to eat and started the trek back home. Made it back at 10 pm.

    I need a do over. This weekend wasn't at all relaxing.  

    I'm beginning to think the weird sweet smell I have noticed in my apartment sometimes when I come home at night is the weed someone is smoking next door or down stairs.

    This morning around 8:00 AM I left my apartment to go grocery shopping. I like to get my groceries at Wal-Mart because I can always find the stuff I want and they have the "italian ice" freezer pops I like when it is 105 degrees out.

    As I was locking my door behind me I noticed motion out of the corner of my eye and thought I smelled that a skunk had nested in the area around my apartment door.

    The motion was a young man who had been sitting on the lower steps of my apartment. By the time I got down to where he had been he and his friend had all but disappeared. As I went to my car I noticed them around a corner and halfway to the laundry area.

    I *think* I interrupted two guys smoking weed at 8:00 AM on a Sunday outside my apartment.

    Today I am having a killer sinus headache and have spent most of the day hanging around the house and napping. I woke from a dream that I was napping because I had a headache. As I was turning the light in the living room back on, my wife emerged from another room. I approached her and took her hand. I was surprised that she did not pull away. she leads me towards the door to her bedroom.

    It has been 15 years. Why am I still having dreams like this?

    Free stuff is fantastic.

    Morning campers.

    This was supposed to be my relaxing summer after last years was so busy. It hasn't turned out that way. I have been running all over. I have a few weeks left and have two trips to College Station, a trip to Huntsville AL and now volleyball has kicked off. So we will have weekly trips all over for those games.

    I'll be ready for the school year to start so I can slow down some.

    Today my good boss (Mariela) and I are meeting with a business owner(?) about moving 60 lines of service to Cell Phone Mining Corp, Inc. That kind of boost could guarantee me a sizable bonus this month. Hope for the best!

    Also, how's august treatin' y'all so far?
