Hello My Name Peggy !

Sound Familiar ? I want to rant a few minutes about the problem that is obvious to everyone EXCEPT the company's that are to freekin cheap to do anything about this issue .

I recently spent a Butt load of money putting in a server and several new computers for the company I purchased them through a well known brand ..... Computers .

With me so far?.... Good ... Now I need customer service and what happens , I dial the number and am put in contact with ...... You got it " Peggy " In south America or , east china , or who knows where that can barely speak English . I wanted to buy another computer on my business credit so off we go .

The next day I received a notice That my NEW account had been established .... huh ? I didn't need a new account I needed another computer ! Back on the phone to another " Peggy " in some other foreign country that had NOOOOO idea what was going on trying to fix a problem created by her twin Peggy in south America or east china or who knows where else .

We walked through the problem and I said OK , Good done . The next day I got a notice that the account had been closed and my order canceled ?? WHAT I NEED THE ORDER !

BACK ON THE PHONE AGAIN WITH yep ........... PEGGY the triplet I guess , in another area of southern Mongolia who had NO idea what her sisters had done ! By this point I was rather livid . Making sure that Peggy # 3 New It wasn't her I was mad at I demanded a supervisor , would you believe it the supervisor was in a completely different country ! HOW does THAT work??

Well we went through the whole freekin circus AGAIN . When it was all over I was shipped my order next day air No charge for shipping . I did receive the product.


I have a suggestion for all you people out there that have Phone customer service reps .


If I am calling from the USA I should REACH someone in the USA
If I am calling from South America I should reach someone in South America
If I am calling from Mongolia , I should reach someone ......... Well you get the point !


There should be a law !

How Old Are YOU ? Remember when ?

This was sent to me and Its a bit scary cause It fits my life pretty darn close . I was amazed at the age after I read this ........ You may be too !

Stay with this -- the answer is at the end. It will blow you away.

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events. The grandson
asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and
just things in general..

The Grandmother replied, "Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:

' television
' penicillin
' polio shots
' frozen foods
' Xerox
' contact lenses
' Frisbees and
' the pill

There were no:
' credit cards
' laser beams
' ball-point pens

Man had not invented:
' pantyhose
' air conditioners
' dishwashers
' clothes dryers
' and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and
' man hadn't yet walked on the moon

Your Grandfather and I got married first, .. ...and then lived together..

Every family had a father and a mother.

Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, "Sir".

And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, "Sir."

We were before gay-rights, computer- dating, dual careers, daycare
centers, and group therapy.

Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and
common sense.

We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to
stand up and take responsibility for our actions.

Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege...

We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.

Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.

Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started.

Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and
weekends-not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt,
or guys wearing earrings.

We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President's speeches on our radios.

And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey.

If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan ' on it, it was junk

The term 'making out' referred to how you did on your school exam....

Pizza Hut, McDonald's, and instant coffee were unheard of.

We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.

Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel.

And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps
to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600, . .. . but who could afford one?

Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.

In my day:
' "grass" was mowed,
' "coke" was a cold drink,
' "pot" was something your mother cooked in and
' "rock music" was your grandmother's lullaby.
' "Aids" were helpers in the Principal's office,
' " chip" meant a piece of wood,
' "hardware" was found in a hardware store and
' "software" wasn't even a word.

And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband
to have a baby.

No wonder people call us "old and confused" and say there is a generation gap.

How old do you think I am?

I bet you have this old lady in are in for a shock!

Read on to see -- pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.

Are you ready ????? SCROLL DOWN

This woman would be only 59 years old.
