-20 Something weather and a keyed up near hysterical boss.
Woe is me.

Lyzelle,
You could check out DPReview. It's a site frequented by camera buffs. You can sometimes pick up some pretty great deals in the classified section. People there upgrade like crazy and often have some barely used stuff.

I am SWAMPED looking at resumes. Right now, I'm narrowing down resumes to figure out interviews for a position we're hiring. It's a receptionist/admin position, and most have NOTHING to do with it. I seriously spit my coffee when I read this line on one of them:

I will be out of the house for 13+ hours today with exactly 30 minutes (yes that's right) of down-time.

Do not want.

Hey! That's my Monday! (Actually it's 15 hours, 2 of them are driving and one is lunch though)

It sucks, you have my sympathy.

It's not the easiest thing to do either lol. At least you know she can multi task good quality for a receptionist.

My EFFING bank.
Terrible.

I just had a shouting match at a lady who finally asked if I wanted to speak to somebody else. I told her I wanted to speak to her supervisor.
Turns out she transferred me to her CO-WORKER and not her super.

Worst. customer service. ever.

Goodbye bank. Hello Chase.

OH man that would infuriate me lol. If there is one thing I can't handle it's bad customer service.

My step dad keeps taking the recycling. It's how I get gas money and I'm the one who barely gets 25 hours a week at work while he works full time. He claims he needs it for his spending money...

I was so mad I was shaking. It's really just the cherry on top that the head of the checking department LIED to me and gave me to her "supervisor" who turned out to actually be an employee BENEATH her. Her supervisor, as it turns out, is gone for the day (and apparently nobody knows when she will be in) - you could just TELL me that. LYING is not the appropriate way to handle this.

I have just had it with them. I called to try and get my mortgage through them and got horrible customer service, the guy didn't even seem that interested in working with me to get me a mortgage. So fine, I took my mortgage business to another bank. And now this? They told me when I opened my account that I got free checks as long as I ordered through them - they weren't free if I wanted to get pretty printed checks elsewhere. So I've always ordered my checks through them, but of course with a debit card I never use checks. So I just ordered checks again... and they charged me $20 and insisted I don't get free checks.

Look, they could have just refunded the $20 and kept me as a customer. Instead they were like "Nope, you're dumb, it's NEVER been that way." YES IT HAS. WTF.

So instead of keeping me as a customer when I've had an account with them SINCE I WAS A BABY... they wouldn't refund the $20, and now I'm taking all my money and going home.
Jerks.
