You have new Picture Mail!

what really happend to customer service???

you know sometimes I just hate satellite tv. its out again. rain here today, getting the rain from rita.

ok this ranks right up there with my top questions of why are things the way they are???

can someone explain to me (without being a smart a_ _ about it) (rotflmao) what happend to customer service???

I have had to deal with 2 company's in the past few weeks. One being Melaleuka (www.melaleuca.com) and the other being XM Radio (www.xmradio.com) that can't explain to me why their company's do what they do. let me explain my side :o)

first there's melaleuka, my hubby found this place on-line for a stay at home mom business, so I joined. well less then a month later I decided I didn't want to do this so I called the company to find out how to cancell my membership. this is what I was told by 2 different people. (Oh yes I have their names. I make sure to get names when ever I call a company and I also put down the time I called).

i was told "all I have to do is send a letter with my hand written signature and my membership will be cancelled".
great I said, then I was asked "why" I was cancelling my membership and was their anything the company could do to maybe change my mind.

I said no I just wanted to cancell. ok well thank you came the voice's on the other end of the phone. I said thanks and we hung up.
I then went and zipped off a certified returned reciept letter to the company. (the same day).

they recieved the letter on the 29th of August. at leats thats the date on the reciept. so any way a week later I check my balance at the bank and what do I find??? that the company took $57.00 out of my account.

don't think I didn't call the company. well after getting the run around for about a week I called to so called president's office. I spoke with a woman and explained to her that I sent out a cancellation letter, I told her when I sent it and when the company recieved it. I also told her about the phone call I made to find out how I went about cancelling.

She tells me that I was suppose to have a letter in by the 25th of the month if I wanted to cancell. I told her NO ONE told me that when I called, she pulled up my account and told me it was noted that when I called on the 23rd that the second person I spoke with did in fact tell me that.

I explained to the woman on the other end of the phone that I was not told that and if I were told that I would have over nighted the letter to them and paid the extra money to do so. I was now being called a LIER from the company. I told the woman to get that person on the phone and have her call me a lier right there. That didn't happen, no suprise there. So now to the company I am the lier. Not the EMPLOYEE but ME. because its noted in the computer by the employee that she told me something she in fact DID NOT.

Yes after all this the problem is still not fully taken care of. I've so far still been screwed.

I would like to say this to Frank Vandersloot (the Presdient)that if you ever need someone to re-vamp your customer service department JUST GIVE ME A CALL AND LETS TALK.

I can't believe a company allows its employee's to call it's customer's in a round about way "a lier" without invesagating the complaint.

the second was XM Radio. ever since I stared my subscription with them back in May I have been screwed on my bill. I have been over charged time and again. and then they take money out of my account without informing me. I don't get sent a bill either by snail mail or by e-mail.

Do others have this problem or is it just me??? when I called and asked whats going on NO ONE can ever explain anything to me. Its always the same line "I'm sorry".

Ok your sorry for what,(1)cause you can't explain whats going on at your company??? or (2)cause you can't explain why your company is taking money without informing me???

How do I know or not know someone at the company is not just stealing money from my account??? Seeing as to how they have my credit card number how am I to know when they are going to take money from my account if I don't get a bill of some sort???
who is keeping track of the employee's who handle accounts???

I asked to talk to someone at XM who could help me but the woman would not transfer me. Whats up with that???

I tell you what Murphy's Law SUCKS...

So please do tell, I really know I'm not the only one out there that this happends to. Please share your stories :o)

When are enough people going to finally put a stop to the way big business' treat their customers??? when are people going to finally realize that without YOUR money they can't run their business???

I for one am tired of being treated like CRAP.......

So hows your day going???

Boo's b-day

this was boo on his b-day this past tuesady. we went to go pick him out a pair of pants and a shirt. boo, I and his auntie diane went to the mall and this was out front of the store. what a way to spend a b-day. we should all take a lesson from a child and remember to have fun on our b-day's. it sure was nice to not have to listen about washington and the blame game, even if it was only for a little while. thought I can't turn off my tv from N.O. my heart goes out to each and everyone of those people. I did what I could to donate as I'm sure each and everyone of you have too. I don't have much but what I do have I do try to share. I wish there was some way I could go down there and help out. But there is crap here that demands my time. no no not my family but somethig else.. maybe more on that in the future, we'll see...

well the last few days have been heck-tic. :o) I went to the dr. on tuesday :o( and we cought my allegies/walking pnumoina just in time this time. back in may when I got sick I thought it was only allergies but after almost 4 weeks of not feeling better I found out it was walking pnumonia. well the same thing happend again 2 weeks ago monday and this time I didn't wait so long to go to the Dr. needless to say I'm on antibiotics...

i also havent written in a few days due to I was helping my friend go move things out of a 2 story house. let me tell you it was chalk full of stuff we did it in 2 days. there was also a basement and an attic. it was an 8 rooms house. i woke up sore on friday and by this morning I was sooooo sore, i hurt all over. I slept for crap last night. I have never walked up and down stairs so many times since i can't remember when. a little hard work doesn't kill anybody but it sure takes a hell of a toll on your shins... :o)

so nothing much has changed in the last week where washington is concerned. well that is except for what the former first lady Mrs. Barbara Bush said. I really don't kow what all the fuse is about. Really people, what do you EXPECT from the rich to the poor and helpless??? especially in a time of crisis... the best and worst always comes out in people. Mrs. Barbara Bush is a fine example of that. in this day and time did you really expect ...... What??? I didn't hear you...........

over the years and the centuries what really has changed when it comes to the weak and poor and the rich??? a big fat NOTHING. history will always repeat its self. we have learned nothing in all this time... sad yes, but true. and you know we teach our kids to never make the same mistake again when they do something wrong in their lives. and if we screw up as adults the we carry that with us forever. So why then do we expect our governments to change. just go back in history.

day like any other

I gotta get ready to go to the store here in a few. Tomorrow is Boo's 9th birthday. I'm gonna make cupcakes for him to take to school tomorrow. It will be more or less a quite day. We will probably take him out for dinner. Next year though we're going to hve a pool party for him at the park pool.

Bean is trying to play with the birds. lol play lol....

The dogs are wanting in. I guess I better go do that. I've been watching Fox news again. My mind is just so blown away with all the distruction. Well I guess Pres. Bush also got his way before leaving office. He gets to nominate another supreme court justice. Can't wait to see what happends there. I'm sick of all the CRAP that goes on up there in Washington. If they all pulled their heads out of there a--'s them maybe this country would be in a better place. I keep asking myself (self) how many people do you think will remember all that has happend when the next election cames rolling around??? If people would just stop electing the same old blood and try out new blood maybe things might go right.

Lazy day, not!!!!!

well I cleaned the bird cages and vcuumed and did not much else this morning. off to fold the whites from last nights laundry. lol whats funny there is their not white any more. I used blueing to whiten them up a bit and not thinking I used to much and so now my white's are now blue. oh but such is life. if you can't screw up once in a while then what fun is life???

Bean was being bean too this morning. while I had the dogs outside and uncle festus and rohan out to clean their cages bean was trying to play with them. I tell you what for being in this house for only 2 weeks she sure has put the dogs in their place. its funny to watch them not go within 2 feet of her. and 3 of my 4 dogs are big. lol

I guess its off to do dishes and folding. I've been checking on the rescue going on in New Orleans today. I just can't imagine what it's like down there. I heard something not funny yesterday on the tv, someone said that now was not the time to "blame" for what did or didn't happen in the first 3 or 4 days after Katrina hit. I for one will disagree with that. If you don't speak about it now and just shove it under the carpet then the next time something like this hapens it will be worse. We have a government to look up to, to be there for when "we" "need" them and as usual their not there. The one thing we as a whole have learned from the past is we haven't learned anything, mistakes just keep happening.

A Multi Media Share!

Beans idea of fun.

A Picture Share!

This is Bean. New kitty of the house.

I'm glad to see and hear that things are moving along down in New Orleans. As we all know it's about time.

day in the life of

Ok, so here I sit in bed. I'm watching the news channels, keeping an update on whats going on down south. As with every one else yes of course I have my own opinions. I have always said that "opinions are like a--holes and we all have one" its just some of us have two or three. lol

I'm not feeling good today. I've been feeling sick for almost 2 weeks now. I'm not sure (again) if this is allergies or a cold. Back in May I thought it was allergies and 3 weeks later when I went to the Dr. she told me I have walking pneumonia. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if it didn't just hit me in less then a day. Oh well I'll get over it.

I got to clean the bird cages today and change the litter box and do a load of laundry. Than will keep me from feeling like crap.
