There are certain people who refuse to send me a PM, I guess because they are so bent out of shape by something I have done in the past that they can't bring themselves to personally ask for help.
Win D has read my posts many times about how I answer help requests thru PMs, just like tntea knew it when she posted a message indirectly asking for help on the forums yesterday.
Both of these members know better. They have been around for years, gaining great benefit from my labors, but not having the common courtesy to suck it up and try to get along. That's why I rarely even acknowledge the presence of these forum posts. I understand the attitude from whence it comes.
Improper posting again. Crap! I admit it. This is not the first time this has happened .....and it's just one of hundreds of important things I've missed or forgotten to do here lately.
It's been a struggle to remember all the things I need remember to do. As a matter of fact thats one of the things I'm taking care of today with American Express. I'm writing them a letter hoping to get that straight and searching for a way to make it up to them as well. I think I've come up with a really great idea to make it up to them. It's idea about their billing systems.... Well, heck let me just show you the idea and the letter I'm sending to them. See if you think they will like it.
Dear Sir or Madam ...
I have been an American Express card member, off and on, since 1999. I say "off and on" because American Express has twice terminated my card member account because of lack of payment.
You might remember receiving my letters after my account was terminated ..... I pointed out that I was very busy and paid the bill eventually. It’s not that I was spending exorbitantly and bouncing checks all over the place....... it was that I was travelling and otherwise very busy and not able to focus my energy on things like paying my bills ...... feeding my tiger fish (Charlie), or doing laundry.
You guys aren’t very understanding........ are you ?
Anyway......... I just had a great idea...... you should add a scent to the invoice envelope. A special smell would really help... This is a great idea!
Since you even send return envelopes even with a zero balance, I’m sure you go through scads of envelopes......and it must cost only pennies to add a bit of fragrance to each envelope in such quantities. If you made the envelopes smell like tuna, or stale beer, or rotting pizza..... I’d eventualy notice that the bill was lying on my desk, unpaid, and I’d be quite motivated to send it out.
I hope you give my idea the consideration it deserves. By the way, let’s let bygones be bygones .
Good huh? If they can't see their way to try this then.... I just don't know what else to do for them.
Well .....anyway I have thought long and hard about how to make good on the improper posting deal Todd. I know Stone Mountain is a long way from New Jersey but... If there is a and way.... any way at all..... hope you consider this..... .
I joined a bowling league last fall and I have a lot of fun bowling with my friends. Renting bowling shoes costs ....... $1.25 each night so I bought my own shoes to save some money. Even though they cost almost $32....... I will end up saving $5 through the whole season because I don't have to pay the rental fee anymore. Maybe I will invest the money in a retirement fund because the government has so completely screwed up the Social Security Program I might not otherwise have money for my retirement.
HECK..... I have my own ball. It is gray and weighs 14 pounds and has my name "Chaz " written on it. I asked the man at the bowling alley to put ....."Tarzan" on it because all of my friends call me "Tarzan", but he forgot or something and just put "CHAZ" on it.
Anyway, I wanted to Post this ........ so I could know if you like to go bowling with me. It is great fun. I bowled a 179 game last week. It was my best game for a little while. Last season I bowled a 206. I hope I can bowl in my league again that well this year. Maybe if you have time you really should . Since you need four people for a team, maybe you could ask Tntea and some other friend to go. If you asked Tntea to go..... too, she would probably have fun with you and be flattered that you thought of her when you wanted to go out and have some fun.
Well, I know you are busy running LP .... and all so I will say good-bye. I hope you have time to go bowling soon, though. You could probably use the break since you are so busy all of the time.
Sincerely..... Happy Friday !! ,
The only real failure .....is the failure to try.
Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much.
Odds never change .....but probability does.
