Fourth of July has become a night of terror as I console frightened dogs whilst my neighbors engage in explosive revelry.
I’m not sure I even enjoy fireworks anymore.
I didn’t realize that was the last season of the new She-Ra and now I’m a little bit sad.
Realized yesterday that I pretty much, literally, broke my eye crying over my dog Dax in his final days / post-passing days.
Such is the implication from when the symptoms began and my ultimate diagnosis.
I love you buddy. Keep chasing that tail.
Got my first haircut in 100 years days!
Tis the eve of my Birthday weekend and I’m not quite sure how this all worked out, but all my favorite doggos that I watch have booked this same weekend.
I realized I hang out with dogs more than Read more
Healthcare has been the single largest contributor to my declining mental health in the past couple of years. Life has enough to make me agro on a routine basis; but seriously… About a year ago I got a forever-going-to-change-your-life Read more
It was the seventeenth of May and I was minding my own business when I noticed a little Chihuahua on the drive-way camera. The lighting being what it was, I thought I was just looking at a Read more
So this boy that I had pretty much given up on IM’d me out of the blue today. We’re tenatively getting together on Thursday. A night of sci-fi! 🙂
I also ran into some friends I lost touch Read more
Hooray. I’m not in as much debt as I thought I was. 🙂 That’s always a good feeling. And I think I may have found a bed for cheap. I’m gonna run out and see at lunchtime tomorrow. 🙂 Read more
I’ve never forgotten you, sweet girl. I’m sorry I failed you.
It’s been a couple decades since I manned a customer-service hotline; but there are some very basic of basics when it comes to customer service and it genuinely baffles me how many different companies are lacking in those basic skills.
Take Ring. I’ve given that company opportunity after opportunity to salvage this customer relationship but they continue to fail to address any of my concerns/complaints in their responses.
It’s almost as if they do not read the message at all. Except I know they do because they can manage to pull my name out of it when replying.
It’ll be a long wait, because apparently staffing your phones is somehow easier on the whole COVID-19 restrictions around things like how close to one another a person can be… than, say, putting your workforce remote to actually answer chats and emails.
I fundamentally do not want to interact with people on the phone. I don’t need to repeat every other word because they can’t be bothered to give me dedicated listening.
But they can’t read either, so I guess I”m SOL.
Currently awaiting a response on a buy-back program before I chuck all their cameras into the landfill.
(I’ll find a proper e-waste solution, fret not. But I have little confidence they won’t in turn throw it out improperly somewhere along the chain.)
Can’t really sell them to anyone because I can’t recommend the service.
Literally can not answer your ringing doorbell in time. The feed just won’t load.
I have the best WiFi I can get and all my devices say they have a really good signal. Have the highest bandwidth I can get through cable, too.
So. Issue is clearly on their end. I know this because their alarm panel is (less frequently, but still often enough to annoy me) a bit slow to actually disarm itself when you punch in the code. That one uses its own proprietary comms to its peripherals too, so even more annoying.
But all in all I’ve already given them more chances than was reasonable and they have only been consistent in failing to meet my, very low, expectations.
For all my “I’m not a racist” relatives who are, in fact, racists.
