To my gas range: FLIP OFF. I know I read on last week's Flip Off about some one's oven not working, and now of course, because of the wonderful luck I am having this week, mine also stopped working. The top burners work but not the oven. It just gave out, checked out and went on vacation without so much as a warning.
To my Home Phone: FLIP OFF. My home phone has decided to randomly not to charge. So after being on the base overnight and you pick it up to make a call, the battery isn't charged and the phone doesn't work, because it too has decided to check out.
What's more frustrating then having the problem, is that I can't get anyone to help me.
The first tech F'd up my computer.
The second tech hung up on me.
The third tech told me he would call me back to start the reset after I backed up my computer files and he never did. And when I called to file a complaint with whom I thought was the customer service manager, she dumped me back to tech support without explaining anything to them about my problems, who in turn, you'll never guess, offered to transfer me, again.
I'm done with technology. I'm going to live in a dirt hut with candles, a wood pit as my stove, and soup can lines as my main form of communication. I'd probably be better off without the Internet anyway.
Thanks Kludgy Mom! And thanks to Pumpkin and Piglet who is hosting the Friday Flip offs this week!
I needed that.
Here is an update with my Dell problem, after sending a letter to executive tech support and the Dell corporate, yes, I took it that far, (I also threatened to post the letter I wrote to Dell on my blog), anyway, I have received help from a executive customer support person named Sathish. If it weren't for him I would probably insist on driving down to Texas and dropping my computer at the front door of their corporation and telling them to Flip Off. Anyway.. turns out the previous tech people didn't know what they are doing and my problem is an easy fix. Thank you Sathish!!! He is sending me some replacement hardware and will follow up with me Tuesday.
