I don't usually have a rant...but I have had it up to my neck with people that advertise that they will do a job for you. Second one is , what's the matter with these postmen.
(1) For the last 2 yrs we have had a man cutting our grass. This yr. he didn't come back and my hubby can't find his phone number. SO
I go to sootoday.com to look for someone to cut the grass for a retired couple whos hubby is 80 yrs old and won't do it. lol I see and ad that 2 college guys will do lawn care. I phone up and yes they will come and give me a price.....They DON'T come. So I see another one who will do odd jobs at your home. I call and yes he will be there at 1:30 pm....he don't come. Should I call back....NO if they are not interested I won't call back.
(2) We get a different mailman every week. This morning my husband sees him come up the driveway. But he is watching a TV show so he don't look in the mail box for 15 minutes. What is there but a notice "we are not home". You see it has to be signed. He neither rang the buzzer or rapped on the door. My hubby is in the livingroom and can hear him if he did.He also sees him walking up the street cause he has to be at the corner at 11:00am to get a ride back to the post office.So hubby gets into the car and tries to catch him but he is gone..vanished
Now that would be ok that we have to go over to Romes mail depot but not until tomorrow.......what is the envelope?? My Life Scan Meter to measure my blood sugar because I have diabetes and I can't find batteries anywhere. I call Life Scan and they will send me a new meter because they don't make batteries for the old one anymore.Why didn't the drug store tell me that when I tried to get some for the past 2 weeks? Life Scan tells me It will be in Wed or Thurs.
The lazy creature who is a public servant is too lazy to ring a bell to get a signature of a person sitting in their livingroom. But not knowing it is the meter. So we have to wait until tomorrow and go to Romes to get it. I feel like punching the mail man out when I see him tomorrow.
Okay I'm all finished and I feel a bit better.
BTW we never put our dog out when he is due. The dog is a big sissy and would lick him to death. But the rule is keep your dog in when he comes around.
