Frustration, Sloppy Joes, Award!



The problem that won't go away.......



I bought a new copy/fax/scanner in January. I paid to have a tech from Staples to install/hookup new system. All seemed well until I tried to receive a fax! Just wasn't happening. A short incoming ring then disconnect! I tried everything recommended and Staples decided it was a faulty machine. After ordering me another one (of course they were out of stock) I connected the new one.......



Still no fax.....


So this morning I drive back to Staples and they tell me to call the 24/7 tech service, they can help you on the spot. After pushing every available number......I don't have an instance number...Hello this is my first call to you, how can I have an instance number: Call Staples again.....look up the number on your e-mail confirmation from registration.....NO NUMBER on confirmation. Call Staples again, Call telephone company, Call HP, call, call, call...........................Now I am under the desk trying to switch the phone line with the fax line to see if that will work when this wonderful telephone repairman walks in......"Do you have a problem"? YES! He tested, switched, tested, went outside, tested.....Voila.....he fixed it!


He is my hero!


So now I am on to something I CAN do.....cook supper. HA

Oh, Nanny! I so feel your pain with the fax machine! Evan switched our TV to Dish, but left our internet and phone with the cable company. GROAN!! They turned it all off... had to have them turn it back on... then the router and modem wouldn't sync... booted all the computers off... blah, blah, blah... Took me two days to get the things working! oooooooh, that stuff can be so frustrating!! All made better with a good recipe and a blog award though! Congratulations!

Wouldn't that be great if for every problem we encounter the Mr. Fix It showed up to rescue us? I want to hear about the sloppy joes...is it the buffalo recipe?

I am about fed up with new electronics that are defective, and equally ineffective customer service. It is hard to find a good "Mr. Fix It" so you were very lucky in the end, Nanny!


I haven't watched American Idol this season as the Olympic events were distracting ..I'm going to try to catch it tonight.

Thanks for the kind words ... NYC can be very photogenic :-)
