Blowing off steam!
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
I've had a day I hope doesn't repeat any time soon.
I had made a credit card payment and over paid it by the amount I was going to need Done it before and had it work with Capital one Master card but I guess Sears Master card doesn't work on the same principle.
Anyway went into the website and tried to order what I wanted which was a complete computer system; the computer, the monitor and printer. They wouldn't let me do it so I went in and edited it and just ordered the computer. That they approved at 1023.11.
OK so now I go back in and try to order the other two pieces. Declined.
So I call the card company. The had put a block on it because my name on the card Walt's on the shipping address STUPIDITY! Plus because of that and the order being what it was and for how much at once they stopped it until I confirmed it was my in act placing the order. OK fine Understand that with all the identity theft that goes on.
SO we get that taken care of and even increase my limit so that the money I overpaid can be accounted for and we don't run into any glitches again. So now I go to work and try and order it again when I get home. at lunch time Declined. So I call again Same darn thing. So we get the block taken off and I update my information. They tell me give it a half hour and try again. Finally I get everything ordered.
Walt goes in to trace things with his tracking number The first part of the order has been cancelled! So I call the company I'm ordering from and find out it's the same darn thing So we reorder the item and I'm going through verification and get cut off! They transferred me back to waiting for a rep again and I sat waiting for a rep for almost a flipping half hour again only to find out that the branch to the verification office closed in the meantime! WHAT THE HECK! So they give me a number to call in the morning. And then I'm looking at the email and it's telling me my order is pending on hold until verification can be made by the customer. Well you know what I get this order From this company I won't be using them again!
The thing is all of this could have been avoided had they just called the number on the credit card information in the first place before cancelling orders and cutting me off in the process!!!!!!!!
I've NEVER run into such stupidity!
So anyway I've been to the gym blew of steam came home and cleaned up from the day; swept and mopped floors scrubbed the bathroom and have the dishwasher running. Now I'm just going to sit vegetate; write on my story, and relax for another hour and then head of to bed! Tomorrow's another day and 60,000 newspapers will be arriving on my doorstep ready or insertion and distribution. And so help me bob if the regular strapper isn't there tomorrow and I have to strap I'm going to be totally p....ed off! She has become completely unreliable. And it's now to the point where I don't want to have to be reverting back to my old job when I have my new one to be doing!
