    not an expiry date, it's a 'best before' date.

    No, not just you, Linda. Would you buy dairy that is a more than a month past it's "best before" date, @rock lobster?
    Sobey's is terrible for checking dates. You have to be very diligent when shopping these days.

    If it's a couple of days past due in my own refrigerator then, yes, I will also drink it. However, I will not purchase it in the store if it is past its date.

    Customers who think you are at their beck and call. I only deal with a handful of customers since I left order desk a year and a half ago. My one customer has been bought out again 3rd ownership change in 4 years and all the staff I used to deal with left. The new staff constantly emails me and expects me to available with no warning.

    I get an email this morning they are working on something today and will need me available to answer questions, um sorry I am in a meeting for my company today.

    Another time they email there are some variances in our system in which will be working through and give me 2 dates (the email came the day before) you are expected to be available these 2 days to answer any questions immediately. I was out of town setting up our new branch those 2 days.

    Another time I get an email Friday at 4:55 that they are coming Wednesday to check out facility um that is nice I am flying out of the country on Sunday.

    Unless they want to start paying my salary for the days they want me at their beck and call this is not going to work. I regularly schedule myself 2 weeks to a month in advance, I cannot accommodate these last minute requests especially from an outside company. I only drop everything for my own company.

    City transit diesel buses driving around empty
    polluting the air more in one day than my car does all
    year yet me I'm the one forced to take an emission test.
    Duh! Just look at their exhaust pipes when they take
    off from a light to see who's doing the polluting.
    Ditto for dump trucks.

    People who don't answer emails or text messages that have pertinent questions regarding upcoming events, yet they're super-nice to your face. These people piss me off.

At first, the fella there said that Software issues are not covered under my given warranty, but he talked with his colleague and they said that they would repair it under the warranty regardless.

    Now it is just a matter of when I go to pick it up if they try to charge me like they have done to me before with my last laptop's hard drive failure in which I prepaid for a hard drive, went to pick it up and they said that I owed $60, turns out they didn't install the one I paid for and expected me to pay for it, but I set them straight and it was covered.
    Well, good news. After only one week (The minimum amount of time that they said it would take to repair) my laptop has been repaired and I will be picking it up tomorrow from Best Buy AND I can sneak in going to Wal-Mart to pick up some FREE CESARS with Rexall PM (Sale ends Thursday), coupons that I finally got today (Mail delivery in St.Kitts seems so sporadic, it's either Tuesday & Thursday, or Wednesday apparently???) and CO51 which will hopefully reset with the offer again as per the sneak peek!!!

    Apparently the hard drive had failed on my laptop and they put in a new one (Despite just getting a new drive in March?!?), oh well, it should all be covered and if they say I have to pay, I will refuse to sign for pickup if it comes down to that (Really need a new one anyways and if they're gonna be rude about saying its covered and try to charge me, then they can keep it!!)

    Oh my sending hugs!!!!! Years ago We were sat down for a family meeting and told my Dad had cancer and asking where we wanted to send him for his final days. He had just had tons of tests earlier and one confirmed he was cancer free. I spoke up and said that is wrong. Long story short we were called back and told there was a "keying error" Seriously. His wife said thank gosh I was there because she just accepted the information. Situations like this they should really double check the info before giving heart breaking news.
