Need a new Apple Computer? Better have great credit and an apnt.

I never thought I would see the day where a major US company, that always thrived on “thinking Different” would sink to this level..

No Cash, No $ervice.

You heard me right, no cash no service.  Cash, long held as that which we all wanted, long heralded as that which we need to survive, is (well according to the corporate goons that offered me 10% off a new Mac for the insult its accepted) is looked down upon by Apple.

What makes it worse is their response which is as big an insult as the initial problem.

10% off the machine’s price. That’s even more of an insult to my intelligence than the initial incident.  You’re a big enough company, you can afford to make this right for me, I’m not asking for millions of dollars in settlement, nor am I asking for anything too much off the wall, a nice new iMac would suffice, and an iPad or two for my embarrasment.. You started this, I’m gonna finish it…….

To this end, I will be notifying every media outlet of this embarrassment of a long time Apple user and the hideous response i have gotten.  Maybe then I will be noticed by someone high enough up there to actually give me what I really want in the first place..  An apology worth my while.

The Demons called COMCAST

Abandon all hope ye who use our service...

I am not usually this mean to a company, well yes I am… 😉

Comcast needs to be investigated for their business practices and soon.  Their customer service is second to none when it comes to being insulting and demeaning to the consumer.  Their techs (with the exception of one really cool Mac user that came out) are bumbling buffoons, and their upper management seems more intent on lining their pockets than providing usable service.

This past week we switched to AT&T for Internet and Phone, and DirecTV for television.  Comcast wasted NO TIME deactivating email and the like, normally companies give you a little time to finish getting your waiting e-mail, NOT COMCAST, in the middle of transferring, poof 1/2 an email and then “Error: Username/password invalid”

Companies like that that think they are Gods and become spiteful need to be investigated… especially when they provide really crappy service and then take it out on the consumers as if it’s their fault.

I can almost guarantee that no-one from Comcast will ever respond to this, since it seems to be corporate policy to screw their customers.

Lack of Heath Care and Getting Treatment

Downsizing... No Health Care for You

It finally happened, I made a really stupid decision and decided on my own to move a Circa 1996 Sony CRT Television (25 incher) on my own fromt he living room to the area next to the garage where the garbage goes.  I had the thing pretty much taken apart, and well not realizing at the time how stupid it really was, moved it and then the pain hit.

You know that pain I’m sure, the knives and the screwdrivers poking and prodding into the base of your spine (in my case on my left side) and the feeling that every step you take from that point forward will lead to a disaster of biblical proportions as you go crashing to the floor, that pain.

So Anyhow after about a day of that (I’m a wuss I know) I went to the ER at St Francis, why, I have zero health coverage.  Make a long story short they were courteous, professional and made it so it didn’t hurt as much, but also gave me the name of a little clinic that was in their building that services people with little to no coverage.  That was my mistake… Trusting that this clinic was going to actually service.  Instead of service, they treated me with total disrepect, called me a scammer (as I can’t move, I’m really scamming hmm) and proceeded to inform me that my blood pressure wasn’t high enough for someone in any sort of pain.  (I run low to begin with, I wasn’t aware that 125/88 was that low) and then told me to “please leave, we won’t be assisting you today or any other day”

So begins my now crusade for some sort of doctor to see me and at least give me something now to alleviate the discomfort, and allow me to function somewhat normally for the 2-4 weeks that it should take for this to pass.  Drving is a chore, every single bump sends yet another wave of sharp pain, doind mundane things like oh sleeping are a chore now and all because the health insurance system in this country is broken beyond repair and Obamacare doesn’t fix any of it, in fact it makes it worse…

For those of you who think this new health system is going to be a godsend, i can’t wait to laugh and laugh…
