What a weekend !

No, it’s not what you think, Dawn went out of town for work again. It was a Friday I was looking forward to staying up late and playing some games, made it to 10PM (half hour later then norm ). Woke up not feeling so well on Saturday morning but that’s normal, I didn’t eat a lot the night before. Bad TV dinner I should stop eating those things. Had some OJ and got in the car and was heading for fast food to get something in me.

Not long after that I started to get real dizzy and was having a hard time seeing where I was going. Thought it would be better to pull over and I am not sure if I was talking to Dawn or texted after I stopped. Shortly after that I was in an ambulance on my way to a hospital. Told you it wasn’t a good story.

Seems I am diabetic now and have some cleanup work that might need to be done of the veins, I’m considering it a tune up of sorts. More to come as I get board between tests.

Ebay is the cesspool of the internet

Its been this way for so long I can’t remember when it was a tool that could be used on the internet. I placed a item for sale on Ebay when I should have know better and it was not a hour later I get a response. A person that is “willing” to send more money for what I am selling to get me to go outside the ebay system for payment. This account has never bought anything on ebay and has no reviews . The account has been online since 2005 , why has ebay not CANCELED this account. Ebay police your user base better instead of just increasing user fees !!!

Mac book pro

I got the Mac book pro after selling a domain I had for 10 years, it was a experiment, I never knew anything about Apple computers. At one time a friend would send support questions my way just to see me sweat as I tried to help them. It has been a wonderful computer for a very long time and It has visited a lot of country’s with me, I remember downloading a James Bond movie in Florence Italy the first time we went. and the time in Rome where we had to share the internet connection. And in Greece it was a paper weight due to the bad internet connections.

I have placed it for sale and just booted it up for some photos after not using it for 2 weeks, I miss it already…

From Emirates

Dear Mr Berry,
Thank you for your email of 08 May.

 

I regret to learn the inconvenience you and Ms Dawn Pfiel experienced due to the delay of your inbound United Airlines flight UA5332 from Reno to San Francisco on 26 April.

I can fully understand how unsettling this situation must have been for both of you.

We do regret the inconvenience on account of the delay, which resulted in you missing your onward connection on EK226 from San Francisco to Dubai on the same day.

Whilst I sincerely regret the inconvenience experienced on this occasion, I wish to assure you that the predicament you found yourselves in was not due to Emirates.

I wish to inform you that it is the responsibility of the delayed inbound carrier, in this case, United Airlines to assist their disrupted passengers. Therefore, may I respectfully advise you to pursue the matter with United Airlines as they are responsible for resolving your claim.

Flights are vulnerable to a number of factors that can and do affect air travel operations on a daily basis and as such schedules are subject to change without notice therefore, appropriate travel insurance is always recommended to cover unforeseen expenses on one’s journey.

I have noted your concerns with regards to the no-show fees applicable for rebooking in line with the terms and conditions of your ticketed fare.  However, I wish to advise you that in accordance with our rebooking procedure, it is the passenger’s responsibility to bear the applicable “no-show” fees in the event that they are unable to travel on their original flight. These are set procedures applied to all passengers who do not travel against their booked reservation.

Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention, and for allowing us the opportunity to respond.

Yours sincerely,

Samantha D’Souza

Why I got a computer

A friend reminded me over the weekend as to what I got a computer for ( Flight Sim’s ) by asking questions about a game I have not played in months. With all the options of what to play out these days it’s hard to remember what you love , game of the month syndrome.

I built this computer to play this game ( Microsoft Flight Sim ) at the max and I bet it’s spent 10% of its time doing that. Now I have the “need for speed” ( Top Gun reference ) and I should shit or get off the pot.The newest game is DCS a combat sim that I have over the years sent a lot of money on with “add ons” . This is a reminder to myself to play the game.

Wish me luck on DCS it’s a lot harder to master…

Eve Haddad United Corporate Customer Care

Been dealing with the UNITED bullshit for almost a month now . I am so sick and tired of the shit they are shoveling out. The fucking corporate assholes that think they can just pull in the profits and screw customers without any worries is crap. I am going to get all the emails together and post them here for all to see, please pass these on and share them so we can stop these thieves.
