I haven’t done one of these for a while, but after dealing with 3 different phone waiting systems I decided now was as good a time as any!
Last month I got a ridiculously large phone bill because I was charged for stuff I didn’t use FFS
I decided to keep any eye on my bill for this month (I always do anyway) and when it appeared this month..once again I had been overcharged for the same things FFS
I was going to go in store to fix it up because I find it easier when I can point out the problem rather than trying to fix it over the phone. I decided to do it over the phone. The operator hung up on me FFS
I called back and spoke to another operator, she said ‘Oh you’ve already called us about this last month’. Yes I know..it happened again this month FFS.
Finally got it all sorted out and my bill is back to being in credit NO FFS.
While I was in the mood for punishment I also decided to call Centrestink. Twice FFS.
I worked out the answer to my own problem after being on hold for 45 minutes FFS
After I hung up I realised that I still had another thing to work out with them. Back into the waiting list I went FFS.
When I finally got through to an operator, she transferred me because she said I wasn’t in the sector I needed to be..despite calling the phone number for that department FFS
It was another 40 minute wait FFS
I finally got my questions answered and had spoken to the person I needed to. NO FFS
I decided that two frustrating calls weren’t enough and called the hospital to check on the referral for Mr 4. It was another 20 minute wait on the phone FFS.
Despite me having a letter that says they received his referral in December..apparently the only referral they have on their system is the second one my GP sent last month. Looks like we’re at the back of the line FFS
I still have no idea how they can acknowledge a referral in the first place, then completely ignore it 6 months down the track FFS
Did I mention this all happened before 12pm on Thursday FFS
I had grand plans of finishing tidying up while Mr 4 was at daycare. I had a 4 hour nap instead NO FFS
I hope that today is a much better day..but after yesterday I think I can handle anything the universe decides to lob my way! Although, universe if you are listening..that is not a challenge!
What has been pissing you off this week?
