Well, I had planned on sleeping in this morning, even going so far as to set the alarm for 0600. However, an hour before that 180 pounds of dogs decided to have a little horseplay on the bed before demanding to go outside for a heavy duty pee. So much for sleeping in.
I have some yardwork planned for later today, and tomorrow as well, since the temps are supposed to be warm. Nothing major. From Friday on, we are predicted to have more seasonal temps with highs only getting up into the mid-40's (F).
So, this customer calls in yesterday and asks me about Pergo, and warranties, and if we honor them. She explains to me that in 2001 (yeah, the year of the space odyssey) she had a Pergo floor installed in her kitchen and hallway. She goes on to tell me that while she was cleaning under the bed she found the warranty sheet guaranteeing the floor for 20 years as well as her receipt. I can tell you right now, the only things under my bed are the dog toys. Anyway, her floor is now scratched and faded and according to her receipt, the warranty expires in April. I escalated this issue to our Customer Service Rep who requested the woman email pictures of the receipt, the warranty, and the floor. The receipt she sent is not for a Pergo floor. Nope. Twenty years ago she paid $61 for a laminate sheet to make a countertop. I guess this means she's going to need to start digging under the bed again.
One of my fellow associates came back from lunch yesterday talking about a headline which said Loser #45 was attempting a hostile take over of the GOP. Well, that headline was wrong... kind of. What Loser #45 really wants to do is take complete control of their fund raising, hence the cease and desist orders. You see, he wants all funds raised to go into that personal super Pac he created when he lost. The one he calls Saving the Steal? That Pac is, for better lack of a better term, his personal slush fund. he can dictate which candidates get money, and which ones don't. But, and this is very important, he can also write checks to himself from this Pac. Loser #45 will always want to be a tinfoil dictator.
