Let there be light, and there was heat.

Well, in true Albuquerque & New Mexico fashion, our high temp is suppose to be 91 today, 95 on Friday, and 97 on Saturday. Right now at 12:45pm, its 80degs. So, again our spring has now officially lasted one month, and we are moving into summer. I'm just glad that I have AC in my office, and even better AC in the server room, cus I'm sure at my old office they are sweating cus they have really old and really sucky swamp coolers.

Also today, I got around to checking out the lights in my office, and found that all 3 fixtures had two tubes burned out, so I went down to one of our many tool & supply rooms, and got 2, and put them in the fixture right over my desk, so I now have a good amount of light in my office. Don't get me wrong, I still had good amount of light before, but this makes it brighter, so I feel more willing to get things done.

Also, I'm not sure what it is about the Albuquerque Publishing Company (APC), but I think they have some of the most incompetent people in town working in there office. For you people who live out of state, the Albuquerque Publishing Company (APC) is the company that makes our news paper (The Albuquerque Journal), which I have delivered to my house daily. Well, I prepay for 3 to 6 months normal, and my carrier is suppose to let me know when I have to make my next payment, but I never find out until it's past due. It's not like I get a bill and just blow it off, no. I don’t get crap, and then get phone calls or mail form the APC telling me that I need to pay. So, now I came home yesterday from work, and there was a message sitting on my machine, from who else, but APC. I now have a new carrier and, they want me to send the payment to her for May. Well, this is the first time I have heard that I have a new carrier, and they now want me to send payment to someone for whom I have no address, no phone number, and no sort of contact info at all. Then the dumbass from the APC, does not even leave his name, just a phone number.

So, I call the phone number, and some woman answers it, I tell her what is going on, so she puts me on hold, then like 5 min later comes back, and tells me I need to call another number. I know both numbers are down at APC, so why the fuck can they just not transfer my call to that number. So, my last carrier had crap for communication skills, and its starting to appear that my new carrier has just about the same, if not less.

The only way the APC keeps its customers is it’s the only game in town. It not only does the Albuquerque Journal, but it also does the afternoon paper also (ABQ Tribune). So, DAMN these STUPID PEOPLE!
