Emails like this are why I am so glad not to be in Customer Support any longer:
issue = I tried to open an account with you. After 5 minutes of entering data, I received an error message that asked me to close the browser window and start over. You just lost an account.
Dude, ever heard of a browser error? Ever think it might not be related to our site but to whatever browser you are using? Didn’t think so. And for the record, we are glad we lost your kind of dumbfuck customer. No doubt we would have gotten many more emails from you blaming us for stupid shit we can’t control.
U.S. Gas Prices Make Record Jump
CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) – Gasoline prices around the country jumped to record highs during the past two weeks as the nation’s epic blackout temporarily shut down some refineries and a broken pipeline caused shortages in Arizona.
The shortages pushed average retail gasoline prices up more than 15 cents a gallon nationally, the biggest two-week hike since the Lundberg Survey began keeping records 50 years ago.
Now, who didn’t know they would do this at the first opportunity? You cannot tell me (and have me believe you) that they don’t do this on a whim. Whatever and whenever it suits them (as with most companies and such). The fleecing of consumers continues.
File under the definition of KARMA:
BOSTON (AP) – An autopsy was under way Monday for the priest at the center of the sex-abuse scandal that has rocked the Roman Catholic church, and investigators have begun to describe his death in a Massachusetts prison.
John J. Geoghan was allegedly strangled and beaten Saturday by Joseph L. Druce, a fellow inmate in the maximum security Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley who is serving a life term for killing a man 15 years ago.
The former priest molested nearly 150 boys over three decades, documents have shown, and became a catalyst for the clergy sex abuse scandal that shook the foundations of the Catholic Church.
Now, where are my 13 pieces of flair??
