Pet Peeves



   FlatCityGirl  I'm beyond sick and tired of hearing that whiney kid telling the 9-1-1 operator that he's home by himself and "someone's messing with the front door . . . "
Yesterday at 12:51 EST .




   Escaped commieny  Probably should be on Blessings for good doctors, but I am in a peevish mood. 19 visits in May, Drs, tests and more tests. lost count for dr appt and surgeries in June and here it is the 14th of July with 6 so far and 3 more follow ups scheduled. They clamped DH's jaw so extreme for his carotid surgery, they handed me his broken incisor tooth in a jar, loosened other bottom teeth,can't chew, so add dentist to list. Stoke avoided for him (the Blessing ), me, total stress plus my cataract right eye last Monday, made them knock me out completely. Scotty Beam Me Up.

   Gram77  Hi all. I see I posted remarks below on 20th. We still have no car. We are still playing hide and seek with the person's insurance company. We were hit on June 3rd. We finally got the ok for a rental on the 27th. This is now way beyond pet peeves!

   Calvinesq  Gram: When I was in an accident several years ago (not my fault! ), my insurance company took care of all contact and negotiations with the other driver's insurance company. You should call your agent or other insurance company rep at your company and tell them to go to work for you! You are paying premiums, and this is a service your insurance company should provide for you.

   Gram77  Oh, I didn't make things clear, no doubt due to my frustration, sorry. It is both Allstate and our repair shop doing all the chasing. Hubby has spoken to them both and they are even more angry then we are. The company is Auto-Owners Insurance and to pass the time I am not going on line to see what I can find about this company.

   Gram77  Ever get backed into in a parking lot? Hubby and I did 3 weeks ago. My peeve? When in the dickens is this thing going to get settled and our car repaired? A root canal would be easier!

   StormCnter  Gram, parking lots are the worst place to get into fender benders. And, also they are fertile spots for scams. A couple of those have been tried on me. You know, the old "hey, that dent in my fender wasn't there when I left my car". And, "You must have bumped me because my headlight is busted". Don't fall for them.

   Gram77  The driver that hit us had the nerve to get out, look at a smashed in rear passenger door and then tell us it's not too bad and they have a really good place for us to get it repaired. I thought that only happened on those TV court shows. Guess not.

   MeiDei  You don't even need a car, or drive, to have a scam foisted on you. A few years after my Dad died I got a call claiming my father hit his car & offered to pay cash for damages rather than use his auto insurance. I explained that my Dad hadn't driven in years and someone was playing a joke on him. The calls stopped when I told the fellow that I taped the call, had his # and was doing him a favor by giving the info to our local police for follow-up. After the 1920's my dad had no reason to drive what with taxis, buses, subways & trolley cars in nearby abundance.

   StormCnter  Mei, I had to clean up a scam on my own father after his death, too. Mine didn't turn out as well as yours. My dad had gotten a letter from a lawyer representing a person who claimed her car was damaged in a parallel parking spot by my dad's car. There was a photo of the two vehicles (hers and my father's ). My dad's car was unoccupied. When he got the letter he knew he had done no such thing, it was a rip-off, and he foolishly ignored the lawyer's letter. Then he died and as executor of his estate I had to pay the default judgement the woman received. Always respond, even if it's a scam.

   Calvinesq  Here is the latest, that is annoying me more and more. Those who make change, whether in a fast food restaurant, gas station, convenience store, grocery store, other restaurant or diner and any other establishment, who insist on giving me my change - bills, hard change and receipt - balancing it all in one pile and thrusting the pile at me. Now, I have fairly good manual dexterity, but I would like to get the bills first - placed quickly into the wallet, then the change and the receipt. I don't know how many times at a drive through window, the hard change from the "pile" ends up on the ground, outside of the car. Grrr.

   Gram77  You're fortunate to have your change placed in your hand. Many times I have received my change by having the clerk lay it on the counter. Now that is insulting!

   Calvinesq  I agree. I find that insulting as well.

   StormCnter  My favorite carwash prices the various levels of service at 9.99, 19.99, 29.99, etc. They had a cashier for a while who wouldn't return the penny. If I gave her a ten, she took it, placed it in the register, thanked me and closed the cash drawer. I always asked for my penny, which obviously annoyed her. One day she chastised me, saying no one else ever asked for the penny. I went to the manager, telling him that if his basic car wash costs ten dollars, then don't list it at 9.99. She was fired eventually, but I wondered how many floating pennies she accumulated first.

   StormCnter  What is it about the modern design of square tissue boxes that too often give us a wad of tissues instead of just one? It happens with all the brands, but Puffs work a bit better than Kleenex. In the olden days of flatter rectangular boxes, when we wanted one tissue, we got one tissue.

   BirdsNest  Today's aggravation is a coffee decanter that simply won't
pour without spilling all over. When I get ready to throw it away I will tape a quarter to it. That way I can say I threw something away.

   MeiDei  I have one of those too! I have to pour a cup of coffee over the sink but filling the water reservoir is often, but not always, messy. Save your quarter. : )

   BirdsNest  WalMart used to be at least 50 cents cheaper on certain items than the local Food Lion. They have been inching their pricing to within a penny of the FL prices. I have been buying small cans of whip cream, their brand for .89 cents for several weeks. Yesterday it was $1.37. The cashier said she had the same wake up call for an item she buys frequently. I think FL sells a name brand can of whip cream for the same price. Time to fleece the tourists I guess.

   MeiDei  That's a 50% price increase! What is so strange is that I was able to buy high end meats & seafood during the Carter years that are unaffordable today - I had 1/3 the income than I do now but today's $$ are worth less - inflation must only happen during a Republican in the WH [sic].

   BirdsNest  Our WalMart is discontinuing their price match policy. Says they will lower prices. Fat chance.
