Craigslist scared me again. I emailed my resume in response to a position. I received another email which directed me to a site. Now why wouldn’t you just use Monster.com or CareerBuilder.com to find potential employees? I clicked on the link and filled out the first page of information with totally fake info to see what happens. It was all ad after ad for other crap along with fees to make my job search “more effective”. I’ve almost given up on craigslist and the scams that run around on that service. Have any of you been taken advantage of by fraudulent sites?
Just as CitiGroup did, Wells Fargo offers domestic partnership benefits. Jim signed up as soon as possible. Our coverage has kicked in quickly. He had asked several coworkers for dentist recommendations. One was a group of dentists with tons of locations. We’ve had a bad experience with that sort of dental-chain-thing. Here’s just another example of poor service:
On Tuesday, we got that snow fall for most of the day. The threat to be was that it will probably freeze the next day. Jim had to call a phone number in the morning to make sure it was business as usual. I’m not even sure if he called it because it never froze, and the roads were wet with no ice. In he went. I called the dentist and the answering machine spewed they were closed for “inclement weather”. I called yesterday afternoon and got a normal outgoing message to which I left my name, my phone number and that I was a potential new client. Yes, I said that. No phone call back. I’m a little pissed. Is this the service you’re accustomed to providing? Have you never been taught the rule that morning messages should be returned before lunch and afternoon calls before the end of the day? Maybe it’s time to look for a different dentist – screw the recommendations.
It was a year ago today that my Uncle Alan died. I think his death hit our family especially hard because he was my Mom’s second brother to die of HIV/AIDS related diseases. I’m going to call my Mom and check in on her later.
