because I am one cranky camper today and although the store is air-conditioned and very cool, my temper and blood pressure seem to have risen along with the outside temperature!
I am almost to the breaking (the contract) point with my cell phone carrier. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my iPhone but the service stinks and the reception is poor. I only changed from my previous provider because they weren't able to provide good reception up in Bonney Lake Washington where my kids were living until recently. They graciously admitted the problem and waived the fee to break the contract. (Did I mention I miss them and the huge team as my provider?)
The kids are home now and I find myself in a Catch 22 situation and I am sure I am NOT the only one. Numerous calls to my cell phone with a recorded message to call back. When I call back (twice now) they cannot talk to me because I am not the account owner-my son is at this point. When asked why they call me there is not a good reason is given – my phone number comes first (?) numerically perhaps, but without his name and last four of his SSN they cannot discuss it with me. Remove me from the list – not without his name and last four of his SSN. See a pattern here??
I am not in the habit of calling numbers and imparting information upon their request-after all I was called, I did NOT call them. From what I can determine by googling the number it is either a scam or a legitimate call from this cell phone giant (?) according to which entry in the complaint log you read. So what gives with that? A scam or not a scam??????
Son got a terse message from me this morning after I spoke with "Kyle Collier" whose ears are probably singed at the moment. He will be making the call to hopefully get ME off their list. I am NOT apologizing for having my life interrupted repeatedly especially when I am UNHAPPY with the service to begin with. He did make the call to them the first time and apparently they didn't take him seriously because they have called me repeatedly in the last few days AGAIN and I have tried to ignore them.
And that brings me to the second cranky complaint – What gives with the National Do NOT Call list-it doesn't seem to work without continually filling out forms which means you have to talk with whoever calls whenever they call whyever they call to have the information to fill out the form for the US Government. Good idea – no teeth!
I know these are petty complaints in the big scheme of things and I am really trying to let go of them now that I have shared. Adding insult to injury, I just got a call with the Caller ID "0" so the iPhone is turned off although I pay a pretty penney to possess the darn thing. Call me at the shop kids!
Have a terrific day everyone and stay cool if you are having a heat wave! ~S~
