to be exact, I am told.
Uschi, aaaaw for your phlox. I have some growing in my garden too, they are still too small to flower, but give them until the end of the month, i expect to see bugs.
My ongoing saga with Origin Energy to get my $71.40 back is getting laughable, not.
When one rings them, we are kept in the queue for 45 minutes, I kid you not.
A man answered, and after I gave him my details, I asked him where is my refund. He said that it has been deposited into my bank account June 12. I said no, it hasn't, nothing from Origin has been deposited in my account. He assured me that he could see it right in front of him.
I went to my bank account app on my phone to double check yet again, and couldn't get in I was locked out. I tried on my computer and couldn't get in I was locked out. The message said too many login attempts had been made. ?? I made one on each device.
Ring the bank. She says too many login attempts. I asked her how that could happen when I got that message after the first attempt. Here is what she said. Well some other customer has accidentally used your login. I said huh. She repeated it, it happens another customer has pressed the wrong characters and used your login.
I said, you just made that up. She went quiet. I said ma am I have a dongle, no one is going to accidentally put my login in, it changes every 90 seconds. Silence. She had no answer and reset my account. So. I don't know what happened and maybe I was right when I told her someone had tried to access my account, but definitely not a customer. Sheesh.
I had to hang up on the Origin call to make the bank call. Guess what happened next. I rang Origin back, and was put in a queue for 45 minutes.
Yup. So that is one and a half hours of my precious time, in a queue.
I get a new person, which was good, and he told me that the previous guy had just made it all up, as there is nothing written in my account that says there was a deposit in my bank account on the 12th June. These people are here in Australia too, not offshore.
He says the reason it was never put into my bank account is the bank account details were never passed onto the finance department. He rechecked my mailing address, and told me that my check will be here in 28 days.
I asked for interest on my money for four months, every so nicely. he went quite. Finally he told me to have a good day and if there was anything else he could do just ask.
Char i saw your cake over on facebook. Nice save.
Nancy check your government has not done something like ours has with the 6 month thing. Lots of people here are in for a nasty surprise. You really are a magician with your minis. Such patience.
Betty I sure hope you get to save some of your waterlillies.
Congratulations to Ash on his acting job Ellen. Oh did you see the photos on facebook Karina put up of her photos of the Hollinger Headframe. Brought back some super memories, I really enjoyed going down into the mine..
Happy canning Tracy.
Char, my heart goes out to you and Ted.
It is totally unacceptable that his endocrinologist knew absolutely nothing about his condition. How can that happen. I hope the compression tshirt continues to make his feel somewhat better. Much Love.
((((Steve and Lisa)))) I have no words.
I am off to the Podiatrist for a first visit this afternoon. I have no idea what he will do or say. I am hoping he can help with my arthritic feet, so I can walk more.
Love and hugs to everyone, including our lurkers..
