Follow Through!

Lack of follow through is  probably one of my biggest pet peeves around.   I swear nothing boils my blood more than someone saying they are going  to do something and then not doing it.   Man it makes me want to punch you in the face!

So my tree in the front yard has grown out of control.  I mean this thing grows like a weed in the summer and it’s not a normal tree that grows “up.”  It grows “out” and every which way.  So it’s blocking my dish and it’s touching my roof, the neighbor’s roof and even curving downward and touching the ground.  I hate these damn desert trees!  So of course my HOA is having fits about it
with letters and now they have fined me.  Well this costs a lot of money to try and fix.

I call a guy who by the way, left his card in my front door just a last week for his tree and yard
service.  So this guy came by seeking to provide his services.  I call, he comes by, he gives me an estimate for the tree as well as the yard and we agree on a time and day.  So of course true to
fucking form of you people with your own bullshit businesses like this, he doesn’t show.  He doesn’t call.   And the coward doesn’t pick up the phone when I call him.  I left two messages and
nothing.  Thanks fuck face.

You know something… if you don’t have the room on your schedule or you think the job is too big for you, THEN DON’T AGREE TO THE JOB IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!  What a concept eh????

So now I have wasted my time and energy and now have to call and schedule someone else to come out to even look at it and then give me an estimate and then schedule time to do it, etc.  Once again pushing this out further and further for the HOA to fine me again.  Man…. If you can’t do something or you don’t want to do something then say so!  Over the years I have had this
problem with yard work people.

A Real Pain in the Neck

After 3 days of training sales people I went to my desk when it was over and after about an hour of just sitting and doing email, I suddenly got a very sore and stiff neck.  I mean really sore!  Like all of the sudden too.  What the hell would cause that?  I did no sudden movements or anything
strenuous all day.  Nothing.  Didn’t sleep funny and even if I did, I would have woke up stiff.  This is crazy.  I took some Excedrin and put on some icy hot.  None of it has worked!!!!  Not one dent of an impact!  What the hell?????

Rambo on Another Mission

Well sports fans… my baby left for Afghanistan the other night.  Wah.  I miss him already.  He was already long distance but I was able to get wonderful texts from him throughout the day every single day and talk with him on the phone every night.  He can’t do that there so it’s back to Skype, instant messaging and email.  Hopefully he’ll have good access though.  I think he has a lot less privacy in Afg vs. Iraq with him having to be in group tents now.

Maybe that’s why my phone is not working.  It’s mad he’s gone too.

I miss miss miss my guy.

Another Reason I Hate Technology

We all know I HATE cell phones and didn’t have one till March of this year courtesy of the boyfriend.

Of course this has come in handy in communicating with him and I have liked that.  And yes, I have very much appreciated his gift.

But this thing isn’t even a year old and already the damn touch screen is failing.  I can’t do jack
on my phone, including answering the damn thing!!   No I have not dropped it, slammed it nor spilled anything on it or left it in the heat.  Nothing.

I’ll have to wait till my guy gets to Afg. And then bug him for the account info and see if there is warranty.  *sigh*  Really Sprint??  Really?

Things That Make You Go Doh!!

Purchased a new laptop some months ago and so of course you always have to purchase all the Microsoft programs for an expensive price.  I always feel that shizz is WAY maked up.  Come to find out that where I work we can get the full blown office suite for $10.   Yep, ten dollars.  Wish I would have known that months ago!!!  DOH!
