    Any opportunity to say "Bob's your uncle" makes my day.

    So today I was determined to speak to someone in Lowe's customer service and put the "haul away" charge to rest. I armed myself with coffee and kicked back in the recliner, ready to spend all morning on hold. Much to my surprise, I got the automated offer of a callback, purportedly in "18-35 minutes" so OK. After about 20 minutes I actually did get a call from an real person, who provided the credit for the service not rendered. (Or so she said; I will be checking my bank card.)

    Then I got an email from Lowe's with an "agreement" to sign electronically for my refund. It was called a "Customer Appeasement Agreement," which frankly kind of irked me. I wouldn't have needed appeasing if they'd answer their damn phones and give me my money back for a service I didn't receive.

    Consider me appeased. And a future customer of Home Depot. :p

    The title of that document must not have been put forth to a Focus Group. "Appeased???" LOL!!!!!

    I'd be appeased-off.

    Pits, oh let me count the ways. However they all are more like minor set backs.
    . Drop things, lose things, all day just little nit picking aggravating crap o la!
    First off hubby refused to budge from his chair and go with me. Sorry I am well now and now so not going to spend my day and night watch that idiot box
    when i can be out doing something.
    So I went first to what we here in town call the Good Walmart. About 4.5 miles from us. Had not been there 15 minutes, when the stomach cramp hit, that feeling of oh Lord
    where is the restroom? Mind you I had already gone once before I left(right after my clean shower) . Of course this time it was , um shall we say of the softer variety.
    I hate single sheeted tissue ! Ole people and big butts need 2 ply tissue paper. Clean up was okay, but still hacked that even had to go. Back on the floor and just as I turn a corner with the cart- ugh - again seriously? Nope forget that, suck it up hon, where is the check out counter?
    Check myself out and headed out the door to realize am parked on the other end in handi capped spot. :eek:
    Made it home, took care of a few things, left again. Went to a shoe store but could not find anything in my size. so went to SASS , where we have not been in long time.
    Finally found a pair of sandals to wear for everyday. They are sturdy looking, not glamorous.
    My oatmeal was gone, and it was after 1 pm. Pulled into Sonic. Ordered the Chicken Slinger. Might as well of ordered a dead rat.:oops:
    Once it finally arrived- I should of taken a picture. The bread was very dry, and the chicken slice inside was fried beyond recognition. Notice I said slice- more like a sliver.
    I ate it all anyway. Let me point out, if I am going to gobble down calories I clearly do not need - they better be tasty, and good looking ;).
    I could hardly wait to get home and write my review on Yelp:p.
    So, decided I would sit down and write this via desk top, as phone is charging. Do not know if it were me or the system, but would not take my password, no matter what.
    I was logged on via my phone, so went and signed out, came back and after a few more tries..wa la..got in.
    Anyways, this has been my day so far. Least it sunny and warm outside-
    i did not run over anyone nor cause a scene:D.

    I had a busy weekend finishing my firewood storage and working at my neighbor's place. I had planned to tackle the mess behind my garage and turn the area into storage for my tractor (get it out of my garage) and for tractor implements. I awoke to rain that had not been called for. It rained all morning long and into the afternoon.

    So I made a big breakfast, watched TV, putzed on the computer, took a nap.
    I guess you could call it antiductive, 'cause it wasn't of the "pro" type.
