How many Christmas's have I ruined so far Today?


 Number 7 just left. Out of State check that cannot be verified. The man and his kids left here in tears and made clear it was My Fault they had no money for Christmas. They did not take my Boss off their Christmas list even though I am following his guidelines. They took me off their Christmas list because it was I who made it personal when I would not cash the check they swore to me is Good.

 The one guy had a brand new car, a gold plated cellular telephone and designer clothes. Yet it was my fault his Family will have no Christmas. I bet he has enough to pay that damned cell phone bill. He wouldn't even stop gabbing on the phone long enough to do business. No one can put those damned rude illmannered phones down! The phones aren't ill mannered it is the people using them!

Re: How many Christmas's have I ruined so far Today?


There is now a VERY LARGE sign at the counter in the post office that states:

NO CELL PHONES AT THE COUNTER

Think that it was a customer who kindly crossed out the PLEASE at the end....

There was a post office customer that also worked at the very very large main post office and sorting center in the big city nearby. That customer /worker has heard there was a no cell phone sign in the lobby but was more impressed that the sign had been moved to the upper corner of the computer in full customer view.

Saw a driver on the super slick VERY ICY roads the other day gabbing on a hand held cell phone while driving his family of 6 or 8 along above the posted speed limit. Wondered why he was ignoring the people sitting next to him in the car, and why someone else in the car couldn't have taken that urgent call for the driver. Hope the family got that driver a hands free adapter for Christmas.

Yer Precious1

  A Louisiana based local phone service company we take payments for is closed this Weekend so they can move to a larger office. So I figured there would be people in here Today to pay their bill that is due for disconnect Monday. So they are blaming me that the company is closed for the Weekend and also for the fact that they waited till the last Day to pay their bill.

 Another Lady was just in and wanted to know if we had anything free like calendars. I said all we have is a business card so she took that. Then I offered her some staples and a empty chip bag and she almost took those as well

 The next Lady listened to me explaining the rules we have of verifying checks and getting if and such. She said "That makes sense, you have to cover yourself and follow policy and people should understand that". Then When she gave me her check and I asked for id and said I would have to verify it she said what they all say, "Many times as I have been up in here and you need my id? I gave it to you last year and I am on file and in your system. I wouldn't lie to you I swear the check is Good. I am a regular customer. The other Lady never ask for id"!

Hmmmmm.... if that phone service provider is moving their offices this weekend, they probably will not be able to tell who paid and who didn't and needs stut off on Monday, until their offices are straightened out. It seems like a poor business choice of time for the move with so many more calls and thus possible problems this close to Christmas and Hanukkah and such.
Are they moving out without leaving a forwarding address????

*Wink*

 In between sad stories and cussings I am enjoying the 'Married with Children' Christmas marathon on tv. And the show is based in Chicago just outside 'Almost Chicago'!

Re: How many Christmas's have I ruined so far Today?


Though the stores and parking lots were packed today, the customers took the time to chat with eachother, total strangers that they were. Overheard two mothers looking at the winter hats and gloves for possible gifts for their elementary school aged boys but noted as they did that the designs depicted skulls, fire breathing dragons, symbols of unknown origin, and insulting or violent sayings, or advertising slogans. No sales....
Later, the same two were again discussing how odd that their sons were interested in boxers and the store was stocked with a variety of colors and designs again with violent and such themes, in sizes to fit even the youngest toddler. Odd that so young a child has been targetted by such advertising....

 Lady just called asking if I could cash a personal check. When I told her NO she gave me the Norman Rockwell spill about how "Even though it is a check from Grandma who worked for the Red Cross in WWII handing out coffee and doughnuts to double amputeed soldiers who were writting letters Home to their terminal child. The same Grandma who just baked 2000 cookies for the orphanage and was knitting sweaters for all the residents of Shady Pines Old Folks Home.

 She also said "This is a Christmas how could it be bad?". I was expecting her to tell me Mother Theresa's picture was on the check!

 My Friend Katherine the cleaning Lady just came in . She cleaned the other office and the guy who works there is the Bosses neighbor, friend and co hort. She said he told her that the local competition is going to by the larger office here and take it over. He told her the boss was going to keep office 2 and his the other guy will work it.

 So not sure if he will try and farm me off to the new people or what. I hear nothing and he may wait till last minute to tell us anything. If I did not owe the money for the bad check I would be more inclined to leave. I have been told by many I am not responsible for paying the bad check back but I do not want to face the devil himself. Usually I have to get angry angry before I'll stand up to someone.
