Good Morning....Whoops, afternoon
I am cranky today. Why? I hate telephone beggers. Buy this, take this credit card, donate to this charity. Heather calls everyday to tell me about my credit card, and no, there is nothing wrong with my credit card report so please call her back so she can give me such a deal. I really hate Heather because she is a recording. When I slam the phone down on her it loses some of the effect. Every day I get a call for Reekie?????? to thank him for his wonderful donation, What! We didn't get the pledge card in the mail? Oh my we will send it right away if you will just tell us again you wanted to donate that 30 dollars.
Reekie will never, ever, even when hell freezes over donate to your organization as long as I have any to say about it and I do have plenty to say about it and never, and I mean never call me or any of my relatives again I screech and I slam down the phone. But they do call again. Everyday. Even though I am on a do not call list. Even though I sleep days. Even though I am compelled to answer the phone in case something terrible has happened to my MIL, AAARRRRGGGGHHHHH.
Now Rickie is much more patient then me. He lets them get through their talk as he says they only get paid if they get through their talk. I don't agree. Rudeness is rudeness and why should they get paid for it. Why when I have told them everyday for a year not to even darken my phone with their pleas again. With me they get a quick hangup. And since I am the one who works around here why is it they ask for Reekie anyway!
Anyway this belongs in my rant journal, sorry about that. I had the pleasure of getting an all time high of 8 calls today while I was taking my much needed sleep. Yes I realize they do not know I sleep days and work nights. But.......I AM ON A DO NOT CALL LIST. Does that even work?
The weather is cool outside. It was beautiful this weekend. In the 60's. Perfect bike riding weather. Not that I did any but I judge all my weather by how it would feel on my bike. Windy, warm, cold, rainy.
We had company most of last week and this weekend. I got Saturday off work which was nice as I actually got to visit. Since I was soooo tired that day it was a real blessing not to have to work. I may not think it was such a blessing on payday but for now, its grand.
The phone just rang. My son answered it. I can hear him turning someone down. Does it never end!
Just a reminder what is around the corner. Looks like fun doesn't it.
We have been van hunting. Looking for one in like new condition with low miles and a hitch for my bike rack for under 1000. In blue, LOL. It gives me something to dream about. Dreaming is good.
Well. We are going out to eat. Haven't been out since the 31 and Rick really needs out for awhile. He is like a caged beast. He hasn't been out of my MIL's house for 4 days. I will not drink wine. Doesn't agree with me. Don't expect any weird posts tonight, LOL.
