Today could not have been a more frustrating day if I’d planned it that way… I was FUMING!!!
It seemed to be one thing after another but the most irritating was from this one particular company where I’d placed an order weeks ago that was due over the week-end. I’d heard nothing so rang inquiring as to what the now expected delivery date was. Interesting, there would be no delivery as there was no order – they’d cancelled it! WTF?!
And it was all without any advice to me which really sent me into a tailspin. After all the details you have to give to place an order these days it never ceases to amaze me how no one is ever able make contact! Why is that?
What was even more annoying was having to listen to someone on the phone who clearly was not listening to a word I was saying. Even more incredulous was the total disregard of the poor service not only from they in Customer Service, but from, and for, the staff member who canceled the order and didn’t advise me.
And after all this time on the phone was I offered an apology, NO! It was I, the customer, who had to request an apology, and what was worse, this middle-age woman then suddenly become a petulant three-year child whining an apology to me. I could have jumped through the phone to slap her, instead I hung-up. She’d made her point, I was obviously disturbing her coffee break.
Thank goodness for my Hummingbirds though. I came out to the kitchen for my own calm-down coffee or two and what did I see not one but TWO Hummingbirds. What joy!
Not to be outdone though, Miss Nine was playing on the trampoline this evening where she counted SEVEN Hummingbirds!
I soooooo can’t wait until our decks are set-up with plants and out-door furniture so once-again we can sit quietly amongst nature listening to that wonderful hum emanating from my Hummingbirds… “mum, how much longer?”
