*Grrrr* I'm Grumpy


OK, to give myself credit, I haven't been in this bad a mood for quite some time. So, I feel I deserve a good rant (thank you very much!)

I have been on the phone with about 100 different customer service representatives ALL DAY LONG! That is enough to make any one go coo-coo. All I am trying to do it get my old utilities from this house turned off and my new utilities in the new house turned on. Sounds simple right? NO it is far from easy.

I seriously want to break something! (don't worry pretty pink laptop, i won't sacrifice you to my anger, unless you crash on me and lose all my information... then, well, maybe.)

Have you ever NEEDED to talk to these people and waited an hour listening to slow lullaby elevator music only to have them say "I'm sorry Mrs.(your name here) But, you are not authorized on this account, we can no longer talk to you."

WHAT?!? I pay you, I make the checks out to you, what do you mean i'm not authorized? And why did I have to be on hold for an hour to be told that? AAHHHH

The worst people to deal with is the Power company, the old one won't turn off my service because... you guessed it, i'm not authorized. And the new one won't hook up my service unless I give them a letter from my previous power company showing I pay my bills. I am stuck.

Sure my hubby could call, swoop in and save the day. But, he get's home after business hours, go figure. So as it stands now we'll be eating dinner by candle light in the new house and the lights will be shinning brightly in our old one.

I sent the kids off to nap early today so that I could calm down, no need to get snippy at them.

Tonight my girlfriends are taking me out for good-bye dinner and drinks. We have a designated driver all set up. And I am SO in need of some drunken girl time, should lift my spirits. :)

Thanks for listening, this therapy session has been nice. How much do I owe you?

Ta Ta for now

Aww I'm sorry the power company are such jerks! I hate hate hate calling companies like that, you're on hold forever and it seems like they can never give you a correct answer.

Have fun on your night out!

Yes! OMG! I know!!! I finally made my husband call ALL our places we do business with and approve me to talk on his behalf bc I was soooooo annoyed at always trying to get stuff done and NOT being able to bc stuff is in HIS name...Soooo annoying!

Thank you for complimenting my menu plan! Lol! I almost feel embarrased publishing it bc, like you said, everyone else's looks like Martha Stewart's! Glad ppl appreciate my simplicity!!

Oh my my my, I had these major problems with my phone company. I had 43 voicemails before they gave me access to it! Moving is such a pain. I know just did it three months ago.

Hope it goes smoother for you and enjoy those drinks tonight. Mommy's need to unwind more than any other!

Ohhhhh, yes, I do know how it goes, and I really do feel for you!!! Moving is such an incredibly frustrating, exciting, crazy, tumultuous, anxious and desperatly overwhelming experience! You will get through it and thank GOD for good friends who are there to take you out and support you at the end of such a day. I hope today will be better for you, no doubt it will. Maybe keep a photo of a beautiful spot in Arizona nearby the phone and look at it each time you want to scream!!!

I cannot tell you how much you owe me because you are not on this account

Not much makes me madder than exactly what you wrote about---makes the top of my head want to blow off
