3 Things Thursday!

Happy Thursday Friends. Hope you are all doing well!

1. Great Quotes Found This Week -
"Things come to those who wait - but only things left by those who hustle." ~Abraham Lincoln
"Celebrate what you've accomplished, but raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed." ~Mia Hamm
"Do not strike the match if you can't put out the fire." ~Author Unknown
"All you get from riding the fence are splinters." ~Author Unknown
"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are." ~Theodore Roosevelt

2. Back to Tuesday - Our internet went down on Thursday of last week. I am a smart girl & had tried all the things they tell you to do (you know the things you feel stupid for NOT having already done when you call someone for help). Called Comcast & set up an appointment for Tuesday at 1:00. Requested 1:00 pm specifically but to call first so I wouldn't be wasting my time waiting. My neighbor calls at 1:50 to tell me an internet guy was in my driveway. SO I leave work & call Comcast to ask that they contact him & tell him to wait because I work 24 miles away (it takes me 30 minutes to get there). They actually said they had no way of getting in touch with him. I argued, argued some more, until it became quite heated. I told them that he could just sit there all afternoon if they couldn't guarantee me that he'd be there when I got there. Then, I turned around & went back to work. Supervisor called me & it was fixed first thing yesterday. Because other things had happened at work that day, it was the icing on the cake. Thankfully the rest of my week has been better. However - I can honestly tell you that if you want good customer service, you ain't gonna find it at Comcast.

3. Rain, Rain, Rain & MORE Rain! - Most of you live in Mississippi - and it's WET and COLD. Where did spring go? We have had bad weather, hail, LOADS of rain, winds, everything short of tornadoes. Usually it's "April showers bring May flowers". Wonder what March showers bring? I really like fall but this year I have Spring Fever in a really bad way. Getting our house painted, gonna redo all my flower beds, work on the patio & backyard, etc. Come on sunshine!!!

I'm off to get dressed for work. Everyone have a great week! BTW - look for my next book review coming soon. I'm reading Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic. If you have no idea who he is, google him ......I can guarantee that you will be glad you did. WONDERFUL inspiration. Great gift book for those people in your life who are always know, the ones who always say "Why Me?".
