Default Rant of the Day..

I was watering my cumcumber patch & the D Namwah and out from the shadows comes a field mouse, an Arnold Schwarzenegger mouse.. and runs under my wood pile.. I think it moved the whole wood pile in its withdrawl..
So you know the wood pile is fixing to be a pile ash.. That sucker is eating all my baby cucumbers.. Smoked Rat anyone?.. ( the smoker is going isn't that convenient..) lol :^)

Smile Re: Rant of the Day..

This is not the first time I have bought an item from Home Depot that has been damaged or has missing parts
Items with missing parts
Charbroil gas grill
Moen Faucets
Delta faucets
Glo warm wall gas heaters.
This last episode was with a power vent gas water heater.
The heater out of the box had deep dent in it.
The kit supplied did not have vital saftey parts included, a vent adapter and blower mounting screws.
I called the Rheem hotline to report the the missing parts and the fella said "go back to the store and buy them"
Now, this is the phone number on the box that say's" Call this number first before you do anything else "......Do not return this product to the store. We will help you solve your problem


Needless to say there was a few more dents when I returned it.

I don't understand how manufacturers think they can get away with that nonsense. I purchase something from a store; it's missing parts or doesn't work. My contract is with the store not them; they are are responsible to the store for sending bad products. I have no issues taking something defective back to my contact and letting them sort it out with their supplier; I have never been refused a refund.

My store purchases have been successful this year so far BUT for the first time Pizza Hut messed me up BAD. As always I ordered online for carryout.... After so many successful pickups I figured it was only a waste of paper to continue printing my receipts.

Upon pickup, before I paid, the cashier read my toppings and showed me my pizzas.... 1 pizza was fine and the other was ALL screwed up... The cashier explained ordering online sends the receipt/request straight to them with no third party... Said I must have made a mistake... Grrr unwilling I paid anyways and got home to realize my receipt in my email had the toppings I ordered and the store didn't.

I called them and the manager pretty much stated I'm a liar... I said I could show them my printed receipt and even forward them my email receipt. Blah blah blah they didn't care or even fix.

Papa Johns from now on... I'll miss that stuffed crust.

I did send them an email on their website stating my situation and mentioned the evil managers name, no response yet... To be honest it probably won't be my last time ordering Pizza Hut but I'll be ready next time. It's too easy to get 2 large pizza for less than $20 online and there location is really close to my home.

You got to give them time to check into this and to mail you a coupon for a free pizza or two for your inconvenience. And back you are at PH.....
Good luck to you.

Angry Re: Rant of the Day..

An acquaintance had asked for a banana pup. Last Tuesday I have separated it from the mother plant, washed out the roots, treated them with mycorrhizae to get the plant off to a good start and even delivered the pup to his house with the root ball wrapped in a plastic bag.
He offered to pay for it, but I declined. Walked by his house today and the pup in the bag was still leaning against his house untouched with some very sad looking leaves peeking out of the top.
The pup was at least 4' to 5' already, but now......

I will admire plants others have but ask for none; I don't have space for them just now. IF someone insists on giving me a "little" start, I explain my circumstances--again. IF they persist (as in putting it in the back of the truck), I do my best to take care of it and usually succeed. I guess I think of plants like children; they didn't ask to be here and don't deserve to be neglected or mistreated.

I wished that he would be at least already at this point, so the plant would have a slim chance to survive. But no, the root ball is still in the plastic bag.
I have not forced the plant on him. He asked for it and I even asked him if it was a good time to bring it over.
If I get a plant as a gift, I take extra good care of it, show updates to the giving person in photos or give back in fruits/veggies.
Oh well...

Well, I took a day off work because I'm sick. I got a text from my boss.

It seems that I groomed a dog a MONTH ago and the owner brought the dog in to the vet YESTERDAY and said I cut it's leg.

Mind you, I managed to somehow time-shift and cut her dog a month after I groomed it.

The vet examines the dog and tells her it is NOT a cut at all, it's a lumpy cyst like thing that has broken open, probably cancer.

She decides this means I gave her dog cancer.

Really. If I had the power to give a creature cancer... it wouldn't be the dog.

Wife wakes me up at 3:45am before I have to go to work. Says kids were up an messing with your reef tank. Now anyone that knows anything about saltwater tanks knows they are touchy!! So they dumped a cup if krill,pellets,half left of dechlor bottle an ph stable ! Then knocked corals over,unplugged lights,messed with timers,messed with skimmer. Tank was pure white. Removed all the floating food I could as rest dissolved. Did a water change then and another when I got home 8hrs later. Corals are all stressed out so time wil tell if they survive. I rescued the sea anemone years ago from a crappy petstore. It has gotten huge. I pray it doesn't die! Why the heck do little kids get into stuff! 😟
