I've been on the phone a lot the last few days, talking mostly to machines... in
Menu H-E-double L.
With all of the modern conveniences we enjoy, it shouldn't be so hard to connect with a human on the phone. Sometimes you just need a human to straighten things out.
It's the same thing when I go shopping. I get in line, load my groceries on the belt and if that checker even notices I'm there...she doesn't say a word. Not all the time, but often anymore. And while I'm griping about things, I want to say that little shopping bag merry-go-round where they sack our groceries has to be one of the poorest excuses for efficiency and service known to mankind. I can't tell you how many times I end up at home without my vitamins, or that tube of lipstick that I took 45 minutes picking out. Sometimes it's something really important like the pint of Ben and Jerry's. That gets me all upset and I just had to vent, did I ever tell you that you are a great listener?
