Today is my Frump day, that means for most of you it's a Friday while for me it's a Hump day.
And, in case you're wondering, we did have rain yesterday. The humidity was heavy. I like to ask customers what the weather's like outside of the store. Yesterday, no one had a nice thing to say.
Can we talk about a communication break down? If issues crop up after we sell an installation, they are resolved by a COS (Customer Order Specialist). Believe me, they do crop up from time to time. Normally, when we get an inquiry or complaint, we transfer the call to the COS. Well, our COS is helping out at a different store this week. Since no one told us, we've been transferring calls to her extension... calls which are not getting a response because... yeah, that's right, she's working at a different store.
My back is feeling much better. After all of these years, I should be used to this by now. This episode was definitely on the light side. I think they happen to remind me I do have some limitations. And believe it or not, it isn't the meds that help most, it's a good, old-fashioned heating pad set on low.
I may end up putting mowing my lawn until Monday. That's fine. The tall grass will make for slow mowing. Sweat pants and a long sleeved T-shirt will be required because of the blood-sucking mosquitos. Wearing anything else means entering into the swarm.
