    Perhaps. I did call the office and they had me bring the piece of mail and said they would send the tenant a letter. It seems the Dumpsters are in a lot behind the building, probably to make it more inconveniet to freeloaders not wanting to pay for trash pickup themselves.

    LOL. You could replace AT&T with any of the companies. Problem is they either 1) don't give the people enough information to be able to give a good answer or 2) tell them to always say no first and don't do what they're supposed to until you get pissed enough to climb up the ladder and tell the story four times. Prolly both. And oh, that "notes" section they say they have as in "oh, I'll leave a note about this conversation RIGHT HERE"... bit ol LIE.

    Having a fight with my cousin that was two decades in the making. On Facebook, in front of my friends, co-workers, ex-boyfriends, etc. Only to have her delete all the crazy-ass stuff she said to me that proved she's friggin' crazy.

    when people say "expecially" ARRGHH! i recently heard a commercial on the radio for a local cardiologists' clinic, and the woman said "expecially." another one is "irregardless," though i don't hear that as often.

    ^this. Which is why this occurs.

    ATT: insert whatever message here
    me: I would like to speak to a supervisor please.
    ATT: yes sir but if...
    me: I would like to speak to a supervisor please.
    ATT: what is it in regards...
    me: it is in regards to the fact that I would like to speak to a supervisor please.
    ATT: but if you will...
    me: I would like to speak to a supervisor please.
    ATT: one moment I will transfer you

    Though truth be told I usually have my GF call. She worked customer service for years and knows exactly what to say to get things done.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    The computers at work. You would think as we work in emergency services, our systems would run quickly and efficiently in response to the nature of our jobs... hahaha! Sadly, no. I now have to sit here and think of ways to stall the patient, when the reality is something like, 'Sorry, can you just stop having a heart attack until my egg timer finishes? Windows is being a dick.'

    I keep pushing for Macs instead of PCs. Like trying to get an ice cream truck to sell meat popsicles. *facepalm*

    I always hated it when people did that to me when I worked customer service. I have to know WHAT your calling ABOUT in order to get you to a supervisor that is relevant. I have six different people I can escalate you to if you want to speak with a supervisor. But I need to know WHY you want to talk to them, otherwise I'm going to send you to the wrong department head, and you'll be on hold for hours as we try to switch you back and forth and get you to someone who CAN help you. If you were to say "I'd like to speak to a supervisor about (my bill, my insurance, whatever) then I can go "ok" and get you right over to someone.

    Otherwise you're just wasting your time and mine.

    (I'm not attacking YOU personally, just that mentality of "I want to talk to your boss". Yeah, I got six of 'em, which one ya want?
