If You Are Planning To Leave AT&T – READ THIS

If you are planning to leave AT&T,read this. This is a true story.

I made the switch to T-Mobile. They were really pleasant and helpful and I’m amazed at all the features I was missing by having AT&T.

I’m pretty ticked off at AT&T now as they just charged me for a month in advance for Oct 20-Nov 20. I signed up with T-Mobile On Friday night Oct 23. They ported over my # to my new phone.

Service was less expensive but had all sorts of additional features. I called AT&T today to let them know just to but the November they charged me back on my CC. I was informed that they don’t do that, they just KEEP YOUR MONEY.

So I said to the customer service rep, You mean you just charged my credit card for next month, I have NO Service with you but you get to keep my money for NOTHING. She said yes that’s right you should have canceled your account before we took the money.

To me that did NOT seem right. It’s not so much the hundred plus $$$ they took, but it’s the principle. What about poor people that could not afford that? I believe in treating people right and helping the little guy.

I checked with my attorney to see if that is legal. They didn’t think so either so will be following up on that.

I also think the Federal trade commission needs to hear about companies that keep your money for service they are not going to give. I am no longer connected to AT&T and they plan on keeping my money……. WRONG. I guess they don’t make enough billions of $$$.

I’m writing this blog to let everyone know……if you play on leaving AT&T, find out what day they bill you and leave on the day before or you will pay a month for nothing but AIR. That is just totally unethical.

T-Mobile told me if I didn’t the service I could come back and they would cancel it, and refund me all my money. That is a company that cares.

Apple Computers

Apple is an example of an amazing company that gives quality service. I moved over to Apple about 9 years ago, and love them.

People ask me all the time how I can justify the cost of a MAC when PC’s are so much cheaper. For one thing, I have a friend that is a PC buff. I’ve wanted him go thru 3 computers and my 2007 IMAC is still working fine.

Also a MAC comes with all the software you need, and will let you open, read, edit and change Microsoft Office documents, powerpoint and excel. I have never had any issue using the documents on my MAC’s.

IF I have anything I want checked, I can go make an appointment at the genius bar and they test out my mac and check it out. They also offer Apple Care, I can call and talk to a tech anytime and they can help me….it’s just rarely I need to call, cause I don’t have many issues.

Having been a Windows user for 20 plus years, before switching to MAC, the hardest thing I had to learn was not to think so hard. Apple makes things simple.

They also do not nickel dime you to death with software costs. Everything you need it built in. When they have a new versions of the operating system, you can easily back up your old version and install the new most of the time FREE of charge.

They are also seamless. I can work on a document on my MAC, and then go to my laptop and pick up where I left off. If I put a contact into my IPHONE, it goes to my MAC, IMAC and IPAD also, so I don’t have to type it in all 4 places.

If you have never used to tried an APPLE computer, before you judge, go visit a MAC store and play around with them. They are pretty amazing. One thing to warn you though, they are ALWAYS busy, day or night, the store has lots of people. Everyone loves to visit and play with all the new gadgets and they encourage that. They also have lots of free classes you can go to, and learn new tips and tricks.

Apple is a innovative and the leading edge of the future. I would recommend them highly.

Little Boy

A little boy came home from the playground with a bloody nose, black eye, and torn clothing.

It was obvious he’d been in a bad fight and lost. While his father was patching him up, he asked his son what happened.

“Well, Dad,” said the boy, “I challenged Jerry to a duel. And, you know, I gave him his choice of weapons.”

“Uh-huh,” said the father, “that seems fair.”

“I know, but I never thought he’d choose his big sister!”

Happy APRIL FOOLS DAY!!!!!

Green Side Up

A woman wants the inside of her house painted and she calls a contractor in to help her. They wander around the house, and she points out the colors she wants. She says, “Now, in the living room, I’d like to have a neutral beige, very soft and warm.”

The contractor nods, pulls out his pad of paper and writes on it. Then he goes to the window, leans out and yells, “Green side up!”

The woman is most perplexed but she lets it slide. They wander into the next room. She says, “In the dining room I’d like a light white, not stark, but very bright and airy.” The contractor nods, pulls out his pad of paper and writes on it. Then he goes to the window, leans out, and yells “Green side up”!

The woman is even more perplexed but still lets it slide. They wander further into the next room. She says, “In the bedroom, I’d like blue. Restful, peaceful, cool blue.” The contractor nods, pulls out his pad of paper and writes on it. Then once more he goes to the window, leans out and yells “Green side up”!

This is too much. The woman has to ask. So she says, “Every time I tell you a color, you write it down, but then you yell out the window ‘Green side up.’ What on earth does that mean?” The contractor shakes his head and says, “I have four blondes laying sod across the street.”

Speeding Blonde

A blonde was speeding in a 35 mile per hour zone when a local police cruiser pulled her over and the officer walked up to the car.

The police officer also happened to be a blonde and she asked for the blonde’s driver’s license. The driver searched frantically in her purse for a while and finally said to the blonde policewoman “What does a driver’s license look like?”

Irritated, the blonde cop said “You dummy, it’s got your picture on it!”

The blonde driver frantically searched her purse again and found a small rectangular mirror down at the bottom. She held it up to her face and said, “Aha! This must be my driver’s license” and handed it to the blonde policewoman.

The blonde cop looked in the mirror, handed it back to the driver and said, “You’re free to go. And, if I had known you were a police officer too, we could have avoided all this hassle.”

Christmas Tree

There were two blondes who went deep into the frozen woods searching
for a Christmas tree.

After hours of subzero temperatures and a few close calls with hungry
wolves, one blonde turned to the other and said, “I’m chopping down the next
tree I see. I don’t care whether it’s decorated or not!”

Glasses

Three blondes were all vying for the last available position on the local police force. The detective conducting the interview looked at the three of them and said, “So you all want to be a cop, eh?”

The blondes all nodded. The detective got up, opened a file drawer and pulled out a file folder. Sitting back down, he opened it up and withdrew a photograph, and said, “To be a detect, you have to be able to DETECT. You must be able to notice things such as distinguishing features and oddities such as scars, etc.” So saying, he stuck the photo in the face of the first blonde and withdrew it after about 2 seconds. “Now, he said, “Did you notice any distinguishing features about this man?”
The blonde immediately said, “Yes, I did. He only has one eye!”

The detective shook his head and said, “Of COURSE he only has one eye in this picture! It’s a PROFILE of his face! You’re dismissed!”

The first blonde hung her head and walked out of the office. The detective then turned to the second blonde, stuck the photo in her face for two seconds, pulled it back and said, “What about you? Notice anything unusual or outstanding about this man?”
The blonde immediately shot back, “Yep! He only has one ear!”

The detective put his head in his hand and exclaimed, “Didn’t you hear what I just said to the other lady? This is a PROFILE of the man’s face! Of COURSE you can only see one ear!! You’re excused, too! You’d never make a good detective!”

The second blonde sheepishly walked out of the office.
The detective turn his attention to the last blonde and said, “This is probably a waste of time, but….”. He flashed the photo in her face for a couple of seconds and withdrew it, saying, “Alright. Did YOU notice anything distinguishing or unusual about this man?”
The blonde said, “Yes, I did. This man wears contact lenses.”

The detective frowned, took another look at the picture and began looking at some of the papers in the folder. He looked up at the blonde with a puzzled expression and said, “You’re absolutely right! His bio says he wears contacts! How in the world could tell that by looking at this picture?”
The blonde rolled her eyes and said, “DUH! He has only one eye and one ear, he certainly CAN’T WEAR GLASSES!

Skipping

A blonde is terribly overweight, so her doctor put her on a
diet. “I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day,
and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you,
you’ll have lost at least 5 pounds.”

When the blonde returned, she shocked the doctor by losing
nearly 20 pounds.

“Why, that’s amazing!” the doctor said, “Did you follow my
instructions?”

The blonde nodded, “I’ll tell you though, I thought I was going
to drop dead that third day.”

“From hunger, you mean?” asked the doctor.

“No, from skipping.”

Work Joke

There are three ladies working together in the same office – a brunette, a redhead, and a blonde. After a while, they begin to notice that each day their boss, who is also female, leaves work early.

After this pattern continued for a few weeks, one day they decide that as soon as their boss takes off they’ll leave right after her; after all, she never comes back or calls so how would she know? So, after their boss takes off they all leave as planned.

The brunette was elated to be able to get in a quick workout at her spa before meeting her dinner date. The redhead was thrilled to be home early; she did a little gardening and went to bed early.

As for the blonde, she was so happy to finally come home early for once. But when she got to her bedroom she heard a muffled noise from inside. Slowly, quietly, she cracked open the door and was mortified to see her husband in bed with HER BOSS! Ever so gently, she closed the door and crept out of her house without saying a word.

The next day during their coffee break, the brunette and redhead mentioned leaving early again and asked the blonde if she wanted to go with
Them.

“NO WAY!” The blonde exclaimed, “I damn near got caught yesterday!”
