I don't know what's gotten into me, but yesterday I boldly talked to my boss about getting a promotion - he said he would need to talk to his boss, and whether or not that happens is not up to me (I know his boss would support the idea - it's MY boss who is the problem).
I am going to cancel my trash removal service based on yet another nightmarish customer service call yesterday. I wrote them an e-mail after getting in an endless loop of recorded "choices" that never netted me a human being. They failed to pick up my trash on Wednesday, and if you have read my blog for a while, you may remember that I have a "thing" about my trash. (if you are interested, see this entire post about it.)
I canceled 2 services I had ordered from a local phone / internet / dish TV service - based on more ridiculous customer service calls I had with them. I will stick with the dish service where I got a rational, English-speaking human being on the phone.
I am normally not such an action-taker. I would rather just accept things than go to the trouble of making all these phone calls and sending e-mails. But I tire of crappy service, and I will work on getting more positive things in my life instead of accepting crappy ones.
OK, so I am going to take a bath and go to work. I am leaving early to get my hair done. I am longing to change it, but I think I shall keep it in the current style till the next time I get it done. I love to change it up all the time with my hair. But just before a vacation is probably not the best time to take huge risks like that.
"Moments of perception can build into a lifetime of spiritual serenity, as I have excellent reason to know. Roots of reality, supplanting the neurotic underbrush, will hold fast despite the high winds of the forces which would destroy us, or which we would use to destroy ourselves." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 173
