don't people want to work

Wednesday, August 05, 2020

Right now, people are home and trying to make their places better to live in
have called four contrators to come out to repair our deck and also do a few things that hubby can not do for me.
all four said we will be out. One did come out and told me he would like the job and would call me with a quote the next day

two days go by and I message him on facebook asking if he forgot about the quote. He asked which house and I told him.. two hours later he messaged the quote to me. I asked when he could do it and he said he would let me know. another three days go by and I message him.. and he says he will try and come out today. Still waiting.. as you can gather from my blog

at least the lady from the window company came out yesterday.. and on thursday the guy from lowes is going to measure my doors to replace them

then I get to deal with the nurse/receptionist at out doctors office

Monday the appraiser wanted to come out at 9 am but as we had a doctors appt approximately 25 miles away, we would not make it there by 1015. called the doctors office and I got the dipsy gal .. explained and asked if the NP could fit us in at noon instead. She said she would check and call us back

in the meantime, the appriasers office said how about 130 which would allow us to make the 1015 appt and be home in pleanty of time

Today I get a confirmation email from the doctor confirming noon on Fridat. Really. You were to call me on Tuesday and let me know so I could not jump through my butt trying to change appts again.

Left a message and email for her five hours ago and nothing. This is not a huge office. it is mainly an infusion center with two medical people. one doctor.. one NP

this is the second time this receiptionist has done something and did not bother to call. Last time she called to cancel the appt for 1130 at 1123 on your landline. needless to say she told us that in person

and no she cannot be fired. she is the wife of the doctor in the practice

    Oh yes, it’s like that everywhere. I don’t understand it. What happened to work ethics? Work is not valued anymore, it’s not like when I was growing up.

    We have run into this before too and don't know what to do about it. Are they really that busy?

    We've had the same problem. They come out...tell you how much...we agree...and then never hear from them again. How do they stay in business?? Beats me!

    That is so frustrating. I had to make 3 phone calls this week to cancel a procedure appointment for my DH. The first call they put me through to central scheduling and they told me they could not cancel an appointment for a procedure, just an office visit. She said she would have the person that cancels those call me. She never did to I had to call back. They put me through to central scheduling again. She told me she would transfer me and I was put on hold for over 12 minutes. Then a recording came on and told me I could either leave a message or someone would call me back. I left a message telling them I wanted the appt. cancelled and I wanted them to call me so I knew for sure it was cancelled. Several days later I had to call again to make sure it had been cancelled and they assured me it has been. What a joke.

    wow that is very aggravating. We called 2 carpenters as we wanted a quote for a new cupboard. they both came out as expected and one of them sent us an estimate when he said he would. my husband followed up with the other one and after a few calls he finally told us that he is too busy and cannot give us a quote as he would not be able to do the work this year. So we hired the other guy but he is very busy as well and cannot start until the Nov/Dec timeframe. Sheesh
