Five Things About Me

Ronald tagged me in a little blogging activity were you reveal 5 things that most people don’t know about you.

Five things about me:

  • I’ve been bitten in the face by two dogs. The first time I was 5 years old, a Husky attacked me after I stepped on it’s tail. I have a scar on my upper lip and my right eye brow. The second time a Dalmatian just went crazy and attacked the left side of my face. Yeah, I have a small fear of large dogs.
  • I raced BMX for 2 years. When I was 16, I was ranked #1 in the state for my class.
  • When I was 6, I got mad at my mom for something stupid, went into my bedroom and proceeded to climb into my clothes hamper. My dad had to be called home from work to cut me out with a saw.
  • I used to hate Macs. Now I refuse to use anything else.
  • I feed my cat beef jerky as a treat.

Verizon Has No Sense

I never have liked Verizon all that much, and I’m not sure why. I think it may be their ‘network’ commercials. Does it really take that many people to get one customer’s phone working? Alright, advertising aside, it seems they lack major math skills in the customer service area.

This poor customer was quoted a different amount for data usage than he was charged. Not one, not two, but three service representatives, including a manager, fails to recognize the difference between $0.002 and 0.002¢. You will have to read the customer’s blog, and listen to the phone call to understand how stupid these service reps are.

I hope someone at Verizon’s corporate office sees what is going on and fixes this guys bill.
