Like I said...Amazon's already on it.
The neighbor from the next street over just brought my package the driver FedEx left at her place today. I live in Terrace and she’s on Street. They ALL screw up sometimes. Some more than others.
Oh God, how I know this by heart! I can write a complete white paper in an email explaining the who what when how and why on the situation at hand and STILL... NO ONE READS the damn email. They send a canned message back or misread the crux of the email and don't even look at the specific question I ask.I've decided that all the non-hackers who fail at their job at the Ada post office must find their way into employment at Dish Network. That's not setting the bar high for performance, I can assure you.
We recently signed up for Dish Network TV. Neither of us have had TV service for years. We spend a lot more time at home these days so we thought it might be nice.
Part of the promotion pack for signing up for new service was the standard 3 months of a movie channel package at no charge. But you have to cancel at the end of the 3 month period or they'll continue to provide those channels and you'll be charged. Our cutoff day was the 27th.
I called Dish on the 25th and requested ALL premium channels be deleted from our programming. The (apparently) off-shore agent assured me they were cancelled. Simple 5 minute phone call.
I got my bill today. Guess what didn't get cancelled? Guess what I'm being charged for?
I swear... Just another in the very long list of people or organizations that can't even manage to do a half-assed job. It's just become the norm to expect less from everyone. Very sad. And it's also just infuriating when it happens over and over and over...
It's no wonder I dislike people so much these days.
Oh, yeah... We now have like 5,291 TV channels that we can scroll thru and then b***h because there's nothing worth watching. At least there's that entertainment value...

This was extremely evident in the emails I received from the water heater service reps. It was rampant when I was a service technician. I could call the manufacturer's technical support and explain 5 times sometimes to 5 different people what the part is doing or not doing and they would start their Q and A and ask the same damn questions I had already given the answers to. They were probably going off of a script that they used and filled in the blanks on a GO / NO GO page.
Lord help you if you have multiple vendors of manufactured parts you are trying to marry together and make work according to the specs or salesman. Lots and lots of finger-pointing toward "others". A 1.2 Million dollar job was almost scrapped because of the interaction of one manufacturer's device toward another device made by another vendor. It actually took an engineer and his computer flying to our job site to discover the problem.
