Anatomy of Customer Service (or Do You Want My Money or Not?)

Based on a true story. Apply for new credit card. Get accepted for new credit card. Wait for new credit card. Wait longer for new credit card. Get a letter that tells me to go to post office to get

Let Me Be The First To Say Humbug (or Nine Ways To Cook Reindeer)

(Photo credit: Wikipedia) I am hiding from Christmas. So far I’ve managed not to hear any Christmas music this year, but mostly because I haven’t left the house. I used to work in retail, so I’ve gotten a lifetime dose

Decisions, Decisions (or Insert Humorous Subtitle Here)

I’ve got a choice to make. Well a few choices, actually. And I don’t mean what to have for breakfast. Things that involve money and feelings and where I want my life to go decisions. Like do I want a

Death To Emoticons (or Put On A Happy Face)

Children Should Be Seen And Not Herd (or Feeding Time At The Zoo)

I can’t even get a date, so I’m the last person in the world to give parenting advice. I probably know more about nuclear physics than I do kids. What I do know is they are often loud and usually

Shut Up Already (or Things That Seem Important To You, But Really Aren’t)

Okay, I’m really busy (wasting time), but I promised myself I would post at least three times a week. So at the risk of being snarky, I’ll leave you with this list, because nobody reads blog posts on Friday/Saturday any
