Service People Suck

I was tagged twice with a meme that I planned on doing today, but it takes some thought and I just don't have the time today. I'll hopefully do it tomorrow.

The friggin' air conditioner guy was supposed to be here between 12-2...whaddaya know, its 3:10 and he isn't here yet. And, I called the office and there was no answer, not even an answering machine. The other day there was an answering machine so I have no idea what is going on. AND, the cable guy was supposed to come on Monday to install a digital cable box and HE never showed either. I called there, and after keeping me on hold for 15 minutes they told me that he would be another 40 minutes. He was already an hour late, and he had a four hour window to get here. I said to forget it, that they just helped me make the decision to get a satellite dish and cancel cable.

My brother-in-law came over for a visit today because he is in Jersey, interviewing for some jobs up here. He and my sister currently live in Maryland, so I am hopeful they will move north so we'll see them more often. The whole time he was visiting, Princess was pulling the shy act - she didn't want to go to him, wouldn't even show him her books or anything like that, she just clung to me. After he left, she must have said "Uncle BC" a thousand times. He probably thinks she hates him, and here she is, begging for him to come back. She then went into the photo albums and found his pic. I said, "who's that?" and she said "Uncle BC" and looked at the door as if he was going to come walking back in.

Alright, gotta run because if the A/C guy doesn't come soon I may have to find his shop and go give him a piece of my mind, or perhaps a piece of my fist.

Hey Jersey Girl. We have Dish Network and love it! Can you get that up there (I live in GA)? If so I have 2 gift cards for Dish where you get free installation, free 1st month, and a free DVR box (where you can record shows). Let me know if you are interested because I really want to give them away and all of my friends here already have Dish!

If you are interested shoot me an email at jnthome2000@yahoo.com

If not, oh well, I tried ;)

What a PITA! I hope you get your AC fixed soon.

We had a problem like this, the not showing up thing, with Sears. They were to fix our stove/oven, and they were about 8 hours LATE!!! And then the part was wrong, and the guy felt so bad, that when he handed me the bill for $250, he then handed me a receipt that cancelled the bill out. I could have KISSED the man!!!

i hate these "windows", what about your "window", can't you charge them for your time once their "window" lapses.

I hope you promptly called "Uncle BC" on his cell phone and told him what Princess was doing! I think that's so sweet... Although if he turned around and came back, chances are she would be all shy again. Kids are weird that way!

You just aren't having a good time this week with repair guys are you?

TheBisch said...

Something about those repair guys... they can never make it on time.

Jersey girls rock... always have fun with them! BTW - Here from Michele's!

OY! I would be DYING here in the heart of Texas without AC. Heat indexes are supposed to be around 108 this weekend.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend otherwise. Hi from Michele's.

Molly said...

Yeah, gotta love the timely service people who don't even have the common courtesy to call when they are going to be late...

Daisyhead said...

No air? Ugh. You poor thing. Hopefully they got it fixed for you!

Bumbling Bav said...

mrsmogul said...

I hate it when repair or installation men are late. What's with that? its like, yeah I'm having lunch so I'll just take my sweet time. hell I wish I had AC here but they don't exist here!

Charlie Mc said...

GraceD said...

I hope you went over to the AC guy's place and totally kicked his ass. You may be afraid of bugs, Missy, but I'll betcha you can pound some heads when you need to.
