It's raining and flooding again in Houston. I don't think some families have recovered from Harvey and now Imelda strikes. So far 5th heaviest rainfall from tropical storm in US history. Frack...............

Maybe they should put more money into their employees and less paying for emu trainers.  

It's quite possible that the previous agent was in fact the emu.  The new one just called and I quickly find out that the previous one did not bother to do anything with the forms I emailed her the other day.  We have a history with them not bothering to process forms.  They actually canceled my home owners insurance two years in a row because they never processed a simple form they asked me to sign.  So needless to say, once this whole process is done, I'll be shopping for a new company.

The incompetence of Nationwide as a company knows no bounds. In a continuing trend of them screwing everything up when I call them, they literally failed at cancelling my policy last month and tried to bill me again. Luckily I caught it and stopped the automatic payment in time. But what the hell?

Sabres app is no more.  Replaced by onebuffalo app that is designed for iPhone but not iPad (forced portrait vs. landscape).

I enjoyed reading and viewing Sabres app better on iPad.

None of this minor nuisance compares to any of your complaints I’ve read above.

Did they dilate them?  It's always a blast trying to focus on the computer screen for a few hours after that.  I always wind up sitting as far back as possible, straight arming it Frankenstein style.

 

I forget where I posted it, but my wife had her car rear ended at a red light 3 weeks ago.  Late last week the collision shop told me that they found a lot more damage after removing the bumper and it now classifies as totaled.  We want to get this moving as fast as possible, but the insurance company (Liberty Mutual) doesn't seem to be doing anything at all.  As of Tuesday, they still didn't even have the other driver's information (which I gave to them on day one) or the police report.  A different agent is dealing with it now that it's totaled, so hopefully she'll be quicker.  But so far, she doesn't feel the need to return phone calls.

Yup. Dilated and couldn’t see well for 5 hrs. Now they just hurt from straining all day. HoHum..

I got one of those “timer” air fresheners today. Put if up on a shelf. Smells real nice but every time it goes off it scares the crap out of me. (Good thing it smells like fresh linen)

The chemicals in that thing are going to kill you, but not before they make you real sick.

Happy Thursday.

There’s one of those in the bathroom at work. It’s about 8 feet high on a side wall, right above the urinals. When it goes off, it might as well be in your ear. Plus, how humiliating. You mean to tell me that the bathroom didn’t smell bad enough for you to spray, but as soon as I walk in.... I tell myself it’s reactive instead of timed, just so I can be mad at it 😜

I have a two complaint Thursday.  We are ripping the stucco off our house because it was incorrectly installed, failed, and is now leaking water into our house.  The house is 14 years old. The statute of limitations on suing the builder is 12 years.

They literally used roofing material as the backing membrane.  The stucco contractor I have ripping it off said he has never seen anything like that in his life.

Fortunately I don't have too much stucco and it didn't do too much damage. 8k.  But there is an epidemic of stucco problems in this area from shoddy construction.

FWIW, we are not putting stucco back on the house. Siding for that part.  It's too cold and wet here for that material to ever work right.  Arizona?  Sure.  Pennsylvania? Nope.

That's terrible.

I eagerly await your second complaint.

We had to put down our older dog on Tuesday, we got her four months after we got married so she was a big part of our lives. She was also the first dog I ever owned, as my parents didn’t want one as I was growing up. 

What makes it worse is for the past two mornings our puppy has ran over to the area she used to sleep and whimpered.

Sorry to read that. 

 I am going through something very similar… I have a 13 Yr, 5 month old English Bulldog. He has advanced congestive heart failure. We have decided to put him down Saturday. We’ve been pumping him with drugs to keep him going. It’s just bought us time with him. Which I’m grateful for. But now, even the drugs are losing the fight. It’s time ... 😢

Work complaints today.

I have a big presentation tomorrow morning, for which I am relying on a few other colleagues to provide some input information that I have been asking for the last two weeks. It is now <18hrs until the presentation and they still haven't provided anything. This means I get to spend nearly all of those hours pulling this together. 😡

The inputs they needed to give me weren't even that ####### hard to do, they just procrastinated the ***** out of this. The worst part is sitting here doing nothing knowing that the second I get their files it's armageddon for me.

Having just gone through that on Labor Day weekend,  my heart goes out to you guys.  We still come home expecting to see him at the door,  still watch where we walk when we get up at 4:30 so we don’t trip over him in the dark.

I’m so sorry that you guys have lost those special friends. It’s a hard thing.

 

I lost my Dad three years ago today. He was one of those larger than life types. Quick with wit and loved by everyone he ever met. He was a hard nose tough parent. He dragged himself up and expected us to do the same. I hated him in my teen years but he was right. That is the best path to take.

He went into the hospital after my mother had been there for a week. She was going into ICU to have her colon removed as he was being moved from ICU to a regular room. They saw each other for a bit before she went in. “There’s my beautiful baby!” was his greeting for her. He passed away the next morning broken hearted that his “beautiful baby” didn’t have much time left herself. 

I miss you, man. You were da bomb....and now you are the light. God bless you, Dad.

It’s amazing how quickly they become part of your family.

And now I remember why I hate entering this thread.  Sympathy goes out to all of you that have recently lost/ will lose a pet.  Just this night walking in the door, called out to the dog we put down this spring that we're sorry we're late home, we' ll have your dinner shortly.  Ooops.  (It's still weird to be able to stretch out on the couch because he always hogged 1/2 of it.)

And thoughts & prayers go out to you Ogre on the anniversary of losing your parents.
