Writer's Block: Back to the Future

I would go back. Visit my childhood. I would love to see my grandparents again.
Given the choice of time travel, would you go back in time or forward?

Customer Service

It's not even Thanksgiving yet and I am already restating my opinion that every person in this country should be required to work a customer service or retail job once in their lives. This year I have moved away from the grocery store (Thank you God!) but am now working for a telecommunications giant. It's a paycheck and I make no secret that that's the only reason I show up.
Listening to people call in and bitch about their internet is frustrating, exhausting, and sometimes entertaining. I never knew the internet had become something that people cannot live without. They go crazy if they can't access facebook. I think I'm going to compose a list of stupid reasons not to call your ISP.

1. Don't call your ISP unless you know your telephone number or acct number. It is not my job to know what kind of service you are paying for it is yours. After all its your money.
2. Don't call your ISP and say the internet doesn't work. I can access the internet so it's working that means a. you haven't paid your bill and service has been suspended. b. your modem isn't working correctly. c. your computer is not working correctly. d. sometimes it is actually our equipment that malfunctions, but not usually. or e. sometimes its just you.
3. Don't call your ISP and say you can't connect wirelessly or at all and come to find out 30 mins later you don't even have the equipment we sent you out of the box because its wi-fi capable. We sent you the equipment for a reason and for it to work it has to be plugged up and turned on even for a wi-fi connection. Modems do not work and you can't connect to any internet service without something to carry the connection. That cannot happen when equipment is in the box!

TIP 1: If you threaten to cancel service you will be transferred to a dept that will promise you anything you want to keep you as a customer, but that is the only dept that cares. When you threaten to cancel with me, it does not cost me a thing I just transfer you.
TIP 2: I know I'm doing the job and answering the phone, but just remember the saying that you catch more flies with honey than when you use vinegar. That saying is true for customer service. If you are nice to me than I am nice to you. You scream at me and piss me off well then your screwed because it does not make feel sorry for you or want to help you.

*This rant is finished for now, more might be added later. Please excuse the crazy, people make me that way.*

Birthday

So my birthday was yesterday. Not the best but not the worst either. Unfortunately I was sick which really made me not want to get out of bed. I was also thinking about my grandparents yesterday as well. It was the first birthday in my entire life without either one of them. It was a lot harder to deal with than I thought it would be. Add to that being sick and also in the same week dealing with the fourth anniversary of my Poppy's death and I just ended up really depressed. I gotta hope that next year is better, because even my aunt said to me that yesterday really wasn't worth getting out of bed for.

Writer's Block: Heroes and villains

Who was your favorite childhood superhero, and why?

My favorite superhero was always Batman when I was growing up. My cousins and I saw all the movies and watched the cartoons. He even collected the comics. Batman was cool because he didn't have superpowers. Other than being filthy rich he was a normal guy. He was a vigilante but as a regular person just trying to make his city a better place you have to respect that.

I've always sucked at keeping a journal. Life lately hasn't been anything to write about. It's been one month and six days since my Mamaw passed away. This is the first time I've written about it. I haven't been as bad grieving for her as I was Papaw in 2007. I don't know for the first time in four years I'm not working so maybe it's that I have more time to grieve instead of balancing between work, my grief, and functioning like a semi normal human being. I miss them both so much and I'm dreading the holidays. It just reminds me of years past at their house filled with relatives. This year its my mom and me. I have no idea what my little brother is doing right now since he and mom are fighting. I'll I can do is hope next year is better.

supernatural 5:18 99 Problems

I think that ending just about killed me! Dean is so planning on saying yes to the angels next week. Dean leaving Sammy (guess now he knows how it feels), driving to Lisa Braeden's house! WTF! Is it just me or did he totally look like he was whispering something to her when he kissed her goodbye. Anybody else catch that Blue Earth Minnesota isn't that where Pastor Jim was from? Cas on a bender and faithless hilarious. Sammy telling Dean the only thing keeping him going was Dean (heartbreak much). You could read Sam's every emotion on his face tonite and that last scene with Dean driving off Damn. This show keeps getting better and better every week. More angst, heartbreak, drama, twists and turns every week. This season is gonna end huge. Next week episode 100! Can't wait!
