A Fresh New Start
Typically we're supposed to follow policy, but then there's the other policy that says "screw the first policy let's find a way to get around it and make these customers happy." I do try to get around policy....like today. I'm a very concession happy customer care agent. I give people free stuff all the time. Up to only 50 bucks of course, but hey, 50 bucks can go a long way! I've had some jerks, I've had some really sweet people. I had a guy tell me that if he dosn't get what he wants, he's gonna put magnetic bumper stickers all over his car that say "DELL Sucks! Want to know why? Call me" and also a billboard that says "DELL Sucks. Don't buy from DELL. Want to know why? Call me." I was laughing so hard, and I know I shouldn't have been, but I Thought it was so creative and funny. I really think he'd do it to. He could probably afford it since he's put like $20,000 into Dell. Poor guy should have gotten a SONY.
I've personally never owned a Dell, and knowing how crappy customer support is and how many tech issues people have (that are Dell related), I'll go with an HP or SONY.
Yep, so I just had to get work off of my chest. I'm going to be taking the software support classes so I can transfer over to that. I'd rather put up with customers who don't know what an icon is than people who don't realize that if they're past the 21 day return period, there's nothing we can do. You were supposed to read the returns and exchanges policy before you submitted your order. Sorry bub, better luck next time.
I'm not this ignorant with customers, but by the weekend, I'm sick of them.
So, onto other things....Dan called a couple of weeks ago, apologized for the way things ended, said he felt like we were going too fast...yet when I visited him on Monday night he asked if I wanted to "go upstairs." Ummmmm? Going to fast for ya eh? Let's just say that bit him right in the ass. I don't know, I was so head over heels for the guy and he broke my heart. I caught him making out with his friends girlfriend. They were both wasted, he put away a bottle and 1/2 of Crown by himself. But that is no excuse, he remembered the next morning and told me "not to be mad about it." WTF? Don't be mad about it? I wanted to beat the living crap out of the little whore! I'm not just saying she's a whore because she made out with my boyfriend, it takes two...but it's not the first time she's groped, touched, flirted, what have you with another guy while her boyfriend was in the bathroom. And it's always when Matt is in the bathroom that she does this crap! Whatever...I'm not going to get my heart hung up on Dan, if we can be friends and something real and true comes from it, then fine, but I'm not going to be a piece of ass for him to just toss aside when he's done with me. Not a damn chance.
So, another topic. Being single really bites. I miss having someone to call just because I wanted to say "I Love You." I miss having that security of a man who I know will be there for me and be by my side no matter what. I miss having someone to hold onto anywhere, anytime. I miss having someone telling me that I'm beautiful and no woman could ever make him happier. I miss being the one he comes home to, I miss being the one he calls on when he needs to talk or just to say hi. I miss being the one he can completly count on no matter what. I miss being close to a man that does all of the above. I miss being able to be there for a man who I love dearly and would do any damn thing in the world to please him.
Totally sappy I know, but I miss so much about being with someone. I just want to find that perfect man out there. Sure he's not going to be perfect all the time, but someone who I can just connect with and have no doubts about. I guess it's just gonna take some patience from me and an act of God. So God, if you're reading my mind right now, send me my Knight in Shining Armor to wisk me away from these dreary lands and make me his Princess.
Holy fairytale. Maybe I should write fairytales?
So, on another topic...my entire family is up back hanging out at the hunting camp and I'm here at home bored on the internet with nothing else to do. No one left me a fourwheeler to get up there with and my car sure as hell ain't gonna make it through all that mud. I wanna hang out with everyone...but noooope. Oh well, hunting season starts tomorrow so I'm sure they're all gonna go to bed early to be up before the unaware deer are. I love hunting season, that's when everyone is around.
So, another topic....JON. He's my best friend. Who knew I'd meet my best friend on and online dating site? We just made better friends than I think we would an item. I love his friendship. He's always there when I need him and the same for him. He was there for me at 3:00 in the morning when I was in hysterics because I had just caught my boyfriend in the act. He was there for me when I missed home this summer, even though we were about 100 miles away. He has been there for me through thick and thin, and I appreciate it all. Now I'm gonna get all teary eyed so I'm going to stop with that. He knows how I feel. And I know how he feels about Dan, and I do take his advice to heart and put it to work.
How about another topic?....My feet are cold. I'm like 5 feet away from the wood stove and you wouldn't know it. It's so dang cold in this corner....also by a big window that I'm sure has a draft.
Anything else? I guess not. It's a Friday night and we're all suprised that I'm home. But, I'd rather have it this way tonight. Just hanging out alone...well along with 3 pesky cats. Yea, we have 3 cats....pathetic I know, but they're cheaper than dogs... i.e. free.
Okay, I'm done for now. Have a great night everyone.
Take a Bow....
