Only not such a happy birthday this time around. Yes, i’m alive and healthy- but i’m completely irate.
I don’t even know what to type i’m so angry, and it’s all because of Dominion Virginia Power who has long-since surpassed the incompetent-idiot mark.
Power at the new house was supposed to be turned back on today. It’s too bad they didn’t tell us LAST NIGHT on the phone in a pitch black house that we’d need to turn all our breakers to the ‘off’ position or power wouldn’t be able to be restored. Gee, thanks!
So when they supposedly went to turn the power on, couldn’t happen, all because the moron on the phone failed to tell us the proper action to take.
We call, and bitch them out accordingly, and they claim it will be resubmitted and turned on soon.
Hours pass, it gets dark, all my help goes home, and still no power. We call again, they claim it’s been resubmitted but it’s at the ‘bottom of the pile’- gee thanks, morons!
Hours pass, still no power.
We call AGAIN, except this time, their customer service is closed.
9:30pm rolls around, Thomas goes to the house to check the power since there’s no one we can ask to see if it’s been turned on or not. Nope. Nothing.
He calls again, and this time chooses the option that says there’s been an outage.. and speaks to someone who claims to be in ‘higher authority’- and you know what she says? The ticket was never resubmitted.
Thanks a lot, fucking pricks! So every single person we talked to before straight up lied to us, way to do your job correctly.
She also claims that since she is in ‘high authority’ she will move us to the top of the list to get the power turned on, and will call us directly when it is.
It’s now 10:30pm, no work has been done on the house in TWO fucking days, and i’m watching the slight chance I had to finish the house before we have to move in go straight out the window, all thanks to complete and total incompetency.
No call, no power, no nothing.
IF and WHEN the power gets turned on, i’m going to have to spend ALL fucking night there doing the bare minimum just to catch us up enough to have to completely bust our asses for the next 2 days to TRY and get things ready.
Happy Birthday to me. What an awesome birthday it will be, spending a night alone in a freezing house desperately trying to finish painting, because no one will babysit Holden so that Thomas can help me.
Leftovers are great for 2 things: Easy, quick dinners, and getting to hear your kids complain about the same meal twice in a week!
@anninabyrne He mentioned something about penis trampolines. I don't even know.
My 10 yo didn't know that Dick is short for Richard so he's spent the past 10 yrs thinking Dick's Sporting Goods is a store for penis sports
8yo told me that Oct 31st is "national knock-knock joke day"- which means Halloween will henceforth be known as "The Most Annoying Day Ever"
@SassyPsychDoc "It seemed like a good idea at the time"
@SassyPsychDoc I fact-checked him myself. Someone was seriously sleeping on the job that day
Thought my 8yo was lying when he said that a male woodchuck is a he-chuck & a female is a she-chuck.Nope. If I have to know that, so do you!
Sometimes advice from our kids is EXACTLY what we need to hear. Been a rough few months & what my 8yo said hit home holdinholden.com/2017/10/winn…
10yo: What is calculus? Me: It's you + me = us Husband: get out. #oldpeoplejokes
