My Baby Still Hasn't Arrived
I have my external drive with me so I can load her up with programs as soon as she arrives. She left China last week for Alaska. She left Alaska for Louisville, KY. Today she left Kentucky and UPS informs me that she should arrive in Gardena tomorrow. I'm praying that means a nice UPS guy will deliver her to the office sometime tomorrow. I called Apple to complain that the 2-4 business day promise was bogus. My goal was to get free classes out of them. That plan didn't work; however, they did offer to give me a case for her. So although I'm disappointed, I have to give Apple credit for this gesture.
In other corporate dealings, I lost over an hour of my life on hold with AT&T this afternoon. I grudgingly give them money for cell phone service and Internet. Do I want to spend $150 a month to bundle my services? When the woman asked me, I had to say, "I don't trust your company. Your company illegally spies on its clients". And she was like, "I'll take that as a no." I think it's great that I hate my cell phone provider, but am too lazy to switch to another service.
