    Exactly. It took 2 years to get the equipment sold, installed & started, then another year of me trying to unseat their normal maintenance contractor. All to end in “Well, we’re not prepared for this risk so thanks but no thanks.” I simply replied to my legal guy “No problem but understand I will not hear a damn word about you needing anything from me. NOT A WORD.”

        I got some horrible news over the weekend. My sons head baseball coach who I have been helping coach these boys for the past 4 years was killed in an ATV accident on Saturday right in front of his boy. He was not wearing a helmet and from my understanding in this case it may have prevented this horrible tragedy. Sadly I didn't know him that well outside of baseball since we never hung out but he was a really good guy and cared about these boys as he had been coaching this team since tee ball and they are now 15. Such a sad story.

        I'm going to takeover the team for the boys but it just seems so odd. We have a game tomorrow and I thought we should cancel but have been told his son wants to play. Probably as a distraction and to be with his friends I'm guessing. I don't even know what to say to these kids.
        Sheesh that’s a terrible, horrible situation. I think there’s gonna be a bunch of tears at that game. Best of luck...and give that poor kid a hell of a hug

                  I don’t think they would offer any compensation, but at least my wife would probably be able to keep her job. She reports to a group within hq, not Puerto Rico, but she has to live in an area with an att office. Relocating is a serious consideration.

                  Otoh, labor laws here benefit workers heavily, and in case of either of us getting fired (not ideal) we are probably looking at over a year’s salary as compensation. If we voluntarily leave the company or relocate we lose that.

                  It’s going to be a long process with FCC approvals having to go through, but it limits us with our lifestyle until we know.

                        It has caused a rift in my extended family more than once in the last few years. Something as simple as someone commenting on or liking a post from an ex wife of one of my uncles (divorced 30 years ago) has caused him and his new wife to basically stop talking to myself and my siblings, and I had nothing to do with it. My parents, bless their soles, are your typical elderly facebook users. They have no filter and share everything that comes up on their feed that matches their political views. There has been some heads butting over that too.

When my aunt said that her deceased father would have been proud of his granddaughters and would have voted for Hillary, I thought that since he's dead and in New Jersey, he probably DID vote for Hillary.

                          • My FedEx office deliveries are driving me insane. My office address is XXX Jackson Ave W. There is a XXX Jackson Avenue E. Same number. I don't get a lot of deliveries at the office but, about half the time, anything shipped FedEx to the office ends up there. Fortunately, I have not had any time sensitive documents end up there as those go through the main office, not my satellite. But I'm tired of having to chase down and take the time to retrieve packages they can't deliver as addressed.

                            I've called FedEx several times regarding this problem and been told they'll make a notation on the address for the local dispatcher. Yesterday, when I called to notify them of the incorrect delivery and once again ask for help I getting my stuff to the correct address, the CSR told me that I should add detailed instructions to whatever I order, or give them to whomever is shipping to me, to somehow be added to the shipment. He actually said the addresses are identical and therefore too difficult for a driver to have to figure it out. The addresses are not identical. I asked that even if that was true, how some things gets delivered properly? How do I not sometimes get the other businesses packages? No answer.

                            • The Official Rant of the Day

                              I have another rant. I am a loyal Callaway/Odyssey customer and have had an issue that I have been trying to get resolved. When I bought my clubs in March, my sales rep at the store asked if I was a Callaway rewards member and I said I thought so and gave him my email address. I then bought some woods and a driver from Callaway Preowned. The other day, I saw someone post that they got some balls from Callaway Rewards and I go and look at my account. Apparently, I had an account with Callaway but had not opted-in to the "rewards" account. So I officially signed up for the rewards account on July 10 and emailed customer service. They told me to gather my receipts and forward them to the Rewards email address to get credit. It took me some time, but I got all of the receipts and sent them in and received a response today that, per their legal terms and conditions, they cannot give me credit for purchases before 7/10/19.

                              Regardless of who is at fault, (most certainly me for not signing up for rewards before I purchased clubs) I am surprised by the response. Had customer service told me that they couldn't help, I would have been disappointed but not upset. The fact that customer service told me to gather my receipts from March and send to rewards to get credit is what makes me frustrated. Over 3300 reward points, they are willing to upset a loyal customer that they can see has bought directly from Callaway Preowned by looking at my account history? I was going to use the reward points to get a Callaway hat to promote their brand.

                              These are the kinds of things that happen in business that just don't make sense to me. I am sure there is a reason that legal has their terms and conditions to keep me from getting 3300 points for the $1650 I spent in March, but I can't believe people in customer service think this 10 day exchange is going to help make this customer happy. It is not the end of the world. I still like my Callaway clubs and Odyssey putter. I just wanted to rant.

                                Customer Service is probably one of the easiest things to get right, but so many companies and employees fail at it. It's sad really.
