It's The Little Things

The one thing that really burns my a** is when people in the customer service industry fail to use “common sense” when it comes to deciphering promotions. And it always seems to be the younger generation that fails to be able to use this common sense, why is that??

Case in point- Tim’s has a promotion running this week “Get a bagel for 69¢ with the purchase of a beverage”. Seems pretty simple, right? Apparently this is not so.

You can have your bagel for 69¢ so long as you have it either toasted or at least buttered, if you choose to take said bagel and toast it once you get to work (so it is hot instead of cold with congealed butter by the time you get to eat it) then you are buying in “bulk” and you will be charged the full price for said bagel (do I sound just a little peeved!).

Not a great way to start off my morning folks! And yes, I did fire off a “online comment card”!

Short Term Pain, For Long Term Gain

The prospects of what this yard upgrade is going to bring in the future is a little sullied by the prospects of what it is going to bring to us before the grass comes back!

A Little Perspective Required

It's funny annoying how some people take the time to reach out to others in need, but those same people on the receiving end are not able to do the same for the people who are there for them. Obviously they failed  to remember that that same person offering comfort, advice and understanding is also in need of the same.

Some people need to "think" before offering their words of wisdom!

“It is not fair to ask of others
what you are not willing to do yourself.”

Reject vs. Spoil

I have been so disillusioned by ALL of the Parties in Government these days, that I had decided I was not going to vote this time (especially since it is something like our 4th or 5th  time for an election in less than 4yrs (actually I have lost count)and because there has been absolutely nothing for the so called “middle class in any of them!

And because each time I see an ad on TV (I want to throw something at it, except for the fact that we have a fairly new flat screen, I probably would) or an article in the news I want to scream “ENOUGH ALREADY”! This acting like children and or bullies (actually I think they act worse than children ever thought of) is just such a huge turn off!

That is until I saw this commentary while watching our local news station one night last week:

A rejected ballot is a 'none of the above' option.
To make a ballot rejected simply make no mark on it. Return it blank. That's it. A jump in the number of rejected ballots will be a far more productive outcome than any vote for the status-quo parties.
Solves my dilemma quite nicely I think!
