Why people drink….

  It’s because of automated customer service.  For example, for Christmas I gave my niece a subscription to Diabetic Living as I have for several years.  In January I received an issue.  I checked on line and,  yes, some idiot had rerouted the subscription to me.  I tried to call the phone number for customer service and gave up after no one answered.  Ever...  

So I sent them an email outlining what should be a simple problem to correct.
I received an email back from them saying I had ordered a subscription for myself in addition to the one for my niece but they would cancel mine and credit my credit card.  That did not bode well.  I had only ordered one subscription and I had paid only for one by exact amount by check.

Sure enough comes February and I get an issue of the magazine.  I checked with my niece who tells me she has received nothing from them this year.  So I email these people again and they return with a message that I had better call customer service directly……

Then I get a message from Medco that I need a new prescription for one of my medications and my physician is not responding to their email.  He sent them refills on all of my prescriptions in January and I watched him do it.  I’m guessing they went in” to do” file which is the moral equivalent of the old circular file which means we’ll have to start the entire process again….
That’s why people drink…..
