Waiting

Now that i am retired i can "wait" with much more patience ...BUT...there comes a point...you know...i had a scheduled (over a week ago this was made) appointment for a service call (won't mention who....after working for the government i learned anything in written form can come back and bite you in the $%) and was informed this would take place between 8am and noon...well,hello...noon came and went and when i called the "account issue" was closed..now, the gentleman was very nice and scheduled it for today at 3pm and was very sorry.....i was good (polite and thanked him) BUT don't you just want to scream...i try not to let these kind of things bother me for there is so much more important issues out there .... but it does affect my ability to "trust" that things will run smoothly...anyway..thanks for listening...and while i am waiting i went on You Tube to listen to some amazing talent..(and also to see some wacky stuff)..and i need to post this (did one earlier in the month) for i just LOVE her!!..she makes me smile and feel happy.......

Dont you hate it when that happens! Ggggrrrrr!! Get it over here too! Sometimes we get told you have to wait the whole day, not even a morning or afternoon slot!

Yikes...waiting for people to come and fix something isn't a fun thing to do when they show up much the less when they don't show :) Hopefully they come when they are now scheduled

I absolutely HATE the 4-6 hour window of time!!!! You have to sit and wait all day and then IF they decide to show up it is 10 minutes before the end of the window ... GRRRRRRR! You have every right to gripe about that - I would have reacted in the exact same way (polite to them while brewing on the inside) ;)

I hate it when service people say they will be there at a certain time frame and then never show up! If they at least call it's not so bad, but isn't our time valuable also? Hopefully they finally showed up and got what ever you needed to be fixed, fixed. I saw another funny video on You Tube - Bill Gates last day at work. If you have time go check that one also.

I am another here who understands your frustration! Seems to be a common annoying thing in the world.
