The new "quality workmanship" is quick and dirty...

 

 

And "customer service" is busy on line three... "please call back some other time."

 

 

 

 

 

"Support line is active Monday thru Friday, not including holidays, whenever someone here is actually stupid enough to answer the phone"

 And, for some reason, they saved the plastic bags that bread comes in,

 

 

 

Crap.... I do that too and I don't know why either.

One problem is that people today are used to getting new crap every year or two whether they need it or not.  That way they never get to see their old crap fall apart.  My grandparents, from the WWII generation, weren't like that.  Hell, my granny still used an old fashioned can opener that I bet was 50 years old.  They were eating off plates that were, unbeknownst to them, antiques.  My granddad was a carpenter and made most of the furniture so he didn't have to worry about that falling apart.  And, for some reason, they saved the plastic bags that bread comes in, plus they reused aluminum foil.
 
People just have lower standards these days for some reason.  They are also penniless and in debt quite a lot of the time.  I really miss the old timers, they could teach us a lot today.

it is those very old timers that voted for the politicians that caused many of the problems today.

if you feel the particles and it is impossible to get comfortable it just means that you are a true and genuine princess

I am sorry about your tub. I like baths, too, and that would bother me to hell. I hate shoddy work, too, and hate having to be the villain in speaking up when it is done here.
I am not satisfied with crap. If you are going to do a job, do it well. that is what you are getting paid to do.


Muchos Gracious........ Im glad others understand :)

I think its crap that you expect everyone to agree that what you think is crap is actually crap

 

its crap that you dont accept or respect opinions that other people have

 

 

that little rough spot in the tub might someday save your mothers life ...her fate may have been a slow and agonizing painful death due to complications from a hip repair surgery ....until that lousy repair guy came along and saved her from that fall by leaving a rough spot in the slippery tub

Yeah, there was a piece about a boy who was bullied in school, but he turned it around and started teaching kids that is was cool to be kind....
