Verizon Wireless (again)...

So tonight I am taking some work home with me. I am going to start my letter to my Verizon Wireless Reps boss that I am requesting a new rep. Really I am half way surprised that I have not done this before, but then again I am someone who has great patience.

But I have had enough of his shit and lack of attention to our account with Verizon. I mean we pay them about $1,500 per month for wireless server, you would think that I might get a phone call one a month, or at least once a quarter making sure everything is ok?

Nope, no calls, nothing. The only time I hear from my rep is when I have sent him an email cus something is not working. Now that is when I am lucky enough to get an email back from him. As it stands now, I have sent him 3 emails, one well over a week ago and have heard jack from him. Also, one of these issues is an urgent matter or so I would think so. One of the NEW phones they got us October 2006 broke. They sent replacement phone, only its the wrong phone! So now I got a line that does not have a working phone on it for almost a week now.

So I am in the process of getting emails I need off my system that I need, so I can work on this crap at home since I really don’t want to work until 7pm like I did last night. I've had nothing but problems with our Verizon Rep and for that matter Verizon for the past 2 years and I have had enough.

Its funny, I do get some pleasure out of writing this type of letter, but at the same time I really do not enjoy doing this. Its kind of bittersweet in many ways. I am very anti-conflict. I will avoid conflict at all costs. Also I am a nice person and give people chances.

Well, I have given this fuck-off well more then enough chances.

Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?

So right now I am watching FOX's newest reality show called "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader". I am not sure about this show. Part me loves this show but another part of me says I don’t like it. It’s a toss up.

But there is something I know for sure, and that is that the 5th grade textbooks they are using sure as hell did not come from Albuquerque Public Schools. There have been some questions that I am going, which 5th grade text book did that come out of? LOL.

Now Jeff Foxworthy as a host was the best choice they could make for this show. Now granted, I love Jeff Foxworthy period, but I do think he makes a very good host. I like that he has the freedom to roam around the stage.

Now what makes this show different from others is that they have real 5th graders in there answering the same questions as the contestants. Now I must say these are some smart kids, or I am just not that smart.

Now only in America can you have a show where you try and prove that you are smarter then a 5th grader. But after watching the 3 day premier of the show, I almost feel like I need to drop out of college and go enroll my self in elementary school.
