LLOONNGG time, no see

It has been so long.  I know I'm horrible.  I have no excuses. 

But, I'm really wanting to get back on here.  I need to make myself do this.  

So, in that light, here I go...

I'm no longer a team leader, but I'm now a PSC or patient service coordinator.  I fill in as team leader when my team leader is out our busy.  My position is similar to what I was doing, but I'm not responsible for the administrative stuff.

The youngest little was diagnosed with autism as well as severe combined type ADHD.  I say the youngest little as he is taller and outweighs his older brother.  We are dealing with more socialization issues than anything.  He has sleep difficulties and some vocal tics, but other than that he is high functioning.

I lost my father to metastatic lung cancer in January, 2017.  It was such a hard thing to go through.  I'm a Daddy's girl and I miss him so much.

We got different insurance at work and I have started trying to take better care of myself.  I will write all about my health on my other blog, A witch melting.

I know that there is a lot more, but I will save some for later.  😁

Follow up to Amazon woes

Sorry about the long wait for follow up, I have been out sick with pneumonia.  That shit will knock a person for a full loop!  

Anyway, I contact Amazon with a copy of the email that I had been sent about replacing my unit with no questions asked and was finally sent a new one.  This one is having no issues with charging and I am happy with it. 

I have decided that I need to get on here more and update regularly.  I will be back at it as soon as I can breathe without hacking up a lung.  LOL

Amazon woes

I know that it has been a long time since I posted anything on here and I feel like I am such a hypocrite.  I love reading others blogs and do it often, yet I cannot keep mine up for those few who have followed me.  Suffice it to say that I have been very low-key and did not feel my experiences were worth posting.  However, something happened recently that got my dander up, thus I am here.
I have had a Kindle now for almost 4 years.  First it was the Kindle keyboard and then my Fire.  I love my Kindle.  I can keep all of my books on it and carry it in my purse to read when I have the chance.  I read on it ALL of the time.  My Fire has been my constant companion for 2 years now.  I have never had an issue with my Kindle.  I love my Kindle (yes, I know that I said that already, but I really love my Kindle. 
In the middle of December, I was forced to accept an update to my Kindle.  Normally this is not an issue as I prefer to have it up to date.  However, after receiving this update (that I was not asked to accept, I turned my Kindle on and it proceeded to download automatically) my charger is now a low power charger.  This is the very same charger that I have been using since I bought the Kindle and worked perfectly that same day. 
So, I chatted with customer support and we did some things to fix the problem with no success; after informing them that I was not going to pay for a new charger that worked just fine an hour before the update, I was sent a new 9 watt charger and cable to try.  I also received an email:
Thank you for contacting Kindle Support.
I'm sorry to hear about the problem you had with your Kindle device.

I never asked for a replacement, I only wanted this problem fixed or the update removed.
The charger arrived in 2 days and I plugged it in.  I was greeted with the low power charger message.  So, I call them as suggested and spoke to another service person that was finally able to get the issue solved.  For a whole 2 days.   
So, I called back and the service person wanted to run through all of the things we had already done again.  I told her that I only wanted the update removed so my Kindle would go back to what it was before and I was told that was not possible.  I was also told that I could not get a replacement as mine was out of warranty.  I told her that I knew that it was, but it was someone from her company that had offered a replacement with NO QUESTIONS ASKED in the first place. 
I was told that I would have to buy a new Kindle if I wanted the problem solved.  I let her know that I felt this was bad business practice on their part.  My product worked perfectly, I received an update that I was not asked if I wanted, and then the product no longer worked in the same condition.  Easy way to make your customers buy a new product every couple of years.  I am very disappointed in a company that I have been a loyal customer of for many years.

What does respect mean to you?  To me respect is not given, it is earned for the most part.  Yes, you should respect your elders, respect those in authority, and respect your parents.  However, I am not seeing much of any of that these days.

Providing someone with your dope dealers name knowing that it will get them in trouble with their spouse.  Taking money to bail someone out of jail, repaying your family back, but not the prisoners own family back.  Taking a vehicle for free even when you knew that there were a few minor problems with it, then bitching about how you got screwed over.  Taking another vehicle for free and letting someone who is “supposed” to be a great mechanic bend the motor mounts by dropping the motor on them and ruining the car.  Not coming to your mother's wedding, even though you promised the night before that you would absolutely be there.  Not paying for something that your brother agreed to sell you, saying that possession is 9/10 of the law.  None of these shows an ounce of respect. 

Yet you demand it because a person (someone you did not know) smoked a bowl with your brother and did not offer you any...that takes brass balls.  Then you have him arrested after your shack-up attacked him.  Let’s see how you keep from getting your ass from being evicted.  You once left your sister homeless and you have turned your back on your family time and time again.  Karma is a bitch that rival the one you sleep with at night.  

Yes, I know that there are two sides to every story and no one person is blameless.  Yet, when I have other people tell me that they heard everything that went on and the "victim" is at least 50% liable, I have a hard time being compassionate.  I know how things happen and there is never really an innocent party in events like this.  I said that there would come a day when you would burn all your bridges; I think that day may have come.
