  • Still no bed from Sears

    Posted on by Gav

    First I called the delivery people, who told me that it wouldnt be for a couple day, I told them how unacceptable it was. Eventually they told me they could have it to me tomorrow but couldn’t give me a delivery time. The Oh well it on the truck still and we have to bring it back in and put it on a new truck…
    Again I was irritated why do I have to wait to find out when this bed gonna be here. (writing this while tired, been up since 5am) So, I called Sears cooperate. I told them I wanted to speak to the manager of customer relation because I was very displeased with their services. They sent me to a customer case manager, when I explained the situation and told him, “This is unacceptable, to be treated this way as a customer” I also let him know I didn’t want to shop at Sears anymore because of all the I do not care attitude, and notice on their Facebook there was a bunch of complaints all similar to mine. I had explained to the person that First I got told between 515pm and 715pm, no bed, so at 730 I called and spoke to someone with a I don’t give a rip attitude, telling me it would be around 1030pm that the bed would be here….. and ect that already been said here. I made it very clear that it was unacceptable and them calling me FIRST, to explain the situation would have prevented me from become irritated. Occhiali Ray Ban
    The customer service manager wasn’t pleased to hear what I had went through. I explained to him, I stayed home the entire time waiting for the bed. I kept dad up to midnight because we was waiting because I was still expecting the delivery guy to come since he said he would be here. I let him now that I took away dad night out to eat last night because we was waiting for Dad’s new bed something he need today not in a couple of days. I told him that I wasted 7 hours just waiting for them to be here with the bed. Now I am being told that this wont be delivered and with out a time. The attitude of “ I don’t care, or Its not my problem.” He apologized and agreed we should not have experienced it. He listen to me.
    His resolution was to call their Delivery Solutions, and find out why and see if they could make the delivery better. I spoke with a manager at their delivery place, which I was connected to, who told me that he agreed that they had missed up and that it was unacceptable what had happened. He put a 50$ credit for me on my rewards points. Not sure if I want to get anything form Sears right now but maybe I use it for something that I want.. Shoot I still don’t want to give them my business even though Corporate was more listening. He told me that they would tried to make me one of the first people to get the delivery. I would much rather be up early in the morning at least if they run 7 hours late, Dad might actually get a good night sleep. And I am gonna try to get a few hours of sleep. I honestly don’t feel good I didn’t sleep good and three hours of sleep probably is not enough for me right now.
    I will say this I realize there are other people on their delivery routes, and that they have to meet those routes too. I honestly think when a company screws up the way Sears delivery did, they should make contact the customer not the customer contacting them. I also think that the should get the items to their customer the next day, and not tell them they have to wait anywhere from 1 to 3 days. Yes they have other people to deliver to but the customer who is like me should be taken care of in a timely manner, especailly when it something important like a bed or refrigerator. Things that a person really can not do with out.
    Dad will be 92 in August, he a WW2 vet, and has Alzhiemers and dementia so taking away his dinner because of the oh gee we dont have to meet our delivery times, is not acceptable. Yes I fed him dinner but Monday been our go out to eat so dad can have some socialization and get out of the house. This did not happen. So thanks Sears. At least today I can take Dad out for dinner…. For sure I’m not gonna plan something when Sears should be here. I am gonna try to get some sleep hopefully Dad stays a sleep till I decide to get up. I’m tired and actually feeling sick. I will be updating once we get the bed.


  • Displeased with Sears

    Posted on by Gav

    I am a bit pissed, right now. I really am irritated. I pushed dinner later in the evening, hoping to be able to take dad out for his dinner tonight.. We decided to get Dad a bed, he needed one that was more stable we bought it from Sears, our local store. The process went great up until 730 came. They told me it would be anywhere between 515 pm to 715 pm today… When i called they told me 1030 now I am being told 11 pm…
    So here my problem, it’s not that they are late. The problem is they didn’t bother to call me, to tell me we are running late. I spent most of the day preparing dad bedroom for his new bed. and well clearing some of the stuff away for the living area. Okay fine.. I can handle late what’s pissing me off is NO ONE CALLED ME. Hey we are running late, this is what happening. I would have been understanding, I get it sometimes people run behind.
    The other thing that really bugging me is that when I called the operator didn’t at all seem sympathetic to my problem. so yeah not happy right now. Dad is 92 yrs old next month and now has to be up close to probably midnight so that he can have his bed. Dad normally goes to bed at 9 to 9:30 pm. Ray Ban outlet
    I am really annoyed that the operator had a I don’t care attitude, because they really running behind. Okay I get running behind, but at least act like you care a bit about your customers. I almost wonder if one of the problems sears has is how they schedule their deliveries. I have a neighbor who I was talking to today and told them I couldn’t bring them to the store because I had to wait around for Sears to deliver a bed. They told me they was waiting for sears too and was expecting them at between 3 and 5pm… Okay wait a minute! How come they got a 2 hour earlier time slot and live what 100ft away from me in the next apartment building of the same complex. Seriously something seems really wrong with that. Both of us since we was close together should be delivered to around the same time frame. So I am not sure what happened. Maybe it’s the type of things my neighbor and I was waiting for who knows.
    The sad thing is I was planning on saving money once I get a job, and getting a new Sofa bed for the living room because we need one of those sometime soon. The sofa we have isnt working that great and I was hoping to get a new one eventually now I do NOT even want to use Sears because of what a Epic fail the delivery and the end process was.
    The good thing is that the delivery guy called me and said that they had 2 more stops before me and would be here at 11pm probably.. Maybe they be here earlier and I won’t be so pissed off, but I am not going to hold my breath.


  • One more quarter left

    Posted on by Gav

    I have pretty much completed everything except for my last class, I am not sure I will need to sell my textbooks because of my degree and most of the books I have I want to keep. When I start practicing I will probably bring them with me to my office and have a book self full of books. I have attended the online clinical counseling program with Bellevue University in Nebraska. I have to say I have had a up and down experience there and almost dropped out a couple of times, especially while looking for my internship.
    So here what I think for those of you like me you do better with online programs. Find a good on line program, make sure your professional network is secure, and try not to move in the middle of the program causing your network to no longer be there. That what happened to me, when I moved to Oregon from Minnesota I lost a lot of my network for counseling. I had these because I worked with children who struggled with Autism, plus I had friends in the state who were practicing in the mental health field that could have helped me a bit more. If you are new to a state try to do a online program in the same state, because this will help you find a internship through the school connection. The hardest thing is finding a good internship when you have no connection. It took me a year to find my internship. I am glad I found what I did but I honestly say I don’t think I will make my focus where I am doing my internships. I am remaining there for my final internship which is my last class. I have my comprehensive exams also. I am so looking forward to being done.
    Well overall my experience at Bellevue University been pretty good.. I have had a couple of professors I felt didn’t put enough effort in helping students learn the material or how to do things the way they wanted. But for the most I liked everyone I worked with some of the professor seemed to be very slow in grading but this is kind of to be expected when they are teaching multiple classes.


  • To many stairs

    Posted on by Gav

    Recently I visited someone who if we ever took Dad there we’d need to have a stair lift He barely makes it up the three stairs that are going up to the apartment but I wouldn’t put a lift there because I couldn’t trust our neighbors to have the same respect we would for their stuff. Outside probably wouldn’t be good to have a stairlift anyways but inside it’s good. The place I went doesn’t even have a elevator and boy there are plenty of stairs to go up and down on. I think I walk them stairs and do about 200 plus steps by the time I completed what I needed to do. I was surprised they didn’t have even a elevator because they had handicap parking. Stair lift would help some of their older people who visit.


  • Can’t walk stairs

    Posted on by Gav

    Taking care of someone who elderly often means you need things to help you. If we lived in a apartment that had stairs in it, I would look at different stairlift. My grandma in her Condo had one and it made things so much more safer for her to get up and down stairs. She had fallen down the stairs a couple of times. One hard thing with the stair lift is that it does take up a little bit of space so you have to walk up stairs carefully but it makes it so much safer for someone who can’t get up and down. When granny could no longer make it up and down I am glad my uncles and Aunt found a way to keep her at home and give her safety at home. After she got her Stairlift I never had to worry about her falling down unless she fall out of the seat.


  • Tax Act

    Posted on by Gav

    I used Tax Act to complete my taxes this year. I have to say I was impressed with how easy it was to use considering I lived in Minnesota and Oregon for part of the year. I ended up having to pay Oregon money but Minnesota gave me back my money, which was nice. I am hoping next year i will not owe any money. Oh well if I do. Lets see it takes you through a bunch of questions, and then it also helped me fill my student loan application I might need to go in there and add my hubby information but I won’t have to add my income and stuff which will make my work a lot nicer.
    I would recommend Tax act it is easy and you don’t have to have a great knowledge of how to do your taxes because it takes you through the steps.


  • Baby Gifts

    Posted on by Gav

    I do not have many friends with babies on the way however right now if I did the only way I would be able to get a gift would be baby gifts online. For the most I prefer looking at what I am getting this being said if online is cheaper I just might get it online after looking at it in a store. I know a few woman expecting but none of them I know well enough. When I worked with autistic children I loved looking at baby gifts because sometimes these gift would work great in the class room setting.


  • Racha Thai & Asian Kitchen in Happy Valley Oregon

    Posted on by Gav

    To many Options, Yes me as a gluten-free person is saying to many options for me. The more option I get the harder it is for me to pick what I want to eat. Most places I only get 2 to 4 options. I will say I like all my options, and I thought it was great, I had options in every single category. I did the Royal Sweet and Sour Chicken dish, and my husband id the Garlic Delight Beef. One word Yummy! The good was served hot, and well prepared. I will have to say the sweet and sour which I have always loved was the best sweet and sour. They didn’t bread the chicken, it was nicely grilled chicken. It had a nice texture to it wasn’t over done or under done, it was just right and tasted good. My husband dish was good to i tried a bite and it was nice. Maybe next time i will get the garlic chicken. The nice thing here is when I come in I will know my menu options are good. Just as good as finding a best buy boxing day sales in Canada.
    They are about the same price as most restaurants near me. Their staff was friendly and it was a pleasant place to eat.


  • Getting ready to move

    Posted on by Gav

    We have about 3 months left in our apartment, and then we start moving out west. I will need to look for some coupons which will help with the coast of living I found a nice little site for coupons, I will need to save the link to my favorites. I can get coupons for hotels or other things which I will need to the move over there. I do not always use coupons when shopping but I have started using them more, I used to use them a lot but stop. I am not sure why I stopped but I need to start it back up especially when it will save me some money.
    The site has coupons on clothes, electronics and other things which people use in their daily lives. Maybe before I purchase another cellphone I will see if they have any coupons which would work for me.


  • Chipotle at Mall of America

    Posted on by Gav

    I am starting to dislike this location. I like the food there but it seems I almost have to yellow at them for them to hear me. It is so nosy in there so I can’t hardly blame them for not understanding me right. I am allergic to pork, so to make sure they do not give me it, I ask for the veg beans. Tonight they where insistent I wanted veg bowl, nope I wanted their shredded beef. I mean its not like I use words that a lawyer tucson would use I use simple words.
    By the time we got our meal right which my husband helps confuse people I believe. The girl ahead of us had a something and they where trying to get hers done but hubby thought it they was working on mine. Sometimes I think he needs to hush up and let them deal with one person at a time might have not had so many confusions tonight.
    The food tasted okay.
