Yes, we all have them, don't we? I'm in the midst of one of mine right now, and it's annoying me. A lot.
People who set up appointments to come to your home and fix something and then don't follow through as promised. Yes, it's annoying how many times I've had to deal with this in the 3 month's I've lived here. Do most people have this many problems with a brand new home with all new appliances, etc? I don't know. I seem to have at least my fair share. It's all good, I can work with it. Why is it, though, that every single time I've had any kind of request for service, the person who was going to fix my problem didn't follow through? ARGH!!! My air conditioning, this time. Those who dropped by for conference on Sunday morning can attest to the fact that when I turn on my AC, it gets cold. Very cold. Why? Because the auto function doesn't work. So I called my warrantee service people and they got a contractor who called and set an appointment for between 7 and 9am this morning. So, I was up at 7 and ready to meet him. Of course, that means that unless I wanted to get up at 5 and drive my neighbors insane with a treadmill at that hour of the morning, I had to wait until after he came and left to exercise and get ready. It's now 9:14 am. Not a sign of him. That irks me greatly. So, I call them. Um... yeah, you were supposed to be here this morning? Um... what time is it? It's 9:15. Okay, well, we're going to be there today. WHAT?!? So I ask... do you happen to know when you might be stopping by? Well, how long can you stay there? Oy. So he now says they'll be here at 11. Uh huh. Okay. Well, off to get ready before (if) they show up, I guess. Sigh.
