Dan the Hand Model?

Tonight at work I had a customer tell me that I had nice hands for a man. That I should think about being a hand model. She said that a friend of hers was a body parts model and that body part models are in demand. Well I am sure that I would not get a job as a hand model like she said I could. I have one big scare on my left hand and several small scares on both hands. It was a nice complement.

Great Customer Service

We are in the biggest shopping time of the year. I am surprised at how many companies now days have really bad customer service. Retail stores seem to only put their people on cash registers and not on the floor to take care of the customer needs. Internet and catalog companies have you call a computer. If you are lucky enough to get a live human being they can hardly speak the language or they have an accent you can not understand. Then my favorite thing companies do is send you from person to person and you never get what you are looking for in the first place. All what this says to me is me just want money but you are not important enough to treat you right. I do not mind paying and little more for a good product and good service. I want both when I go shopping. I have stopped going to places that I get bad service even if them had the lowest price. I have worked hard for my money and if you you want me to get it to you, I want great service with the product or products I am buying from you.

But, I am happy to say there are still companies out there that treat their customer right. One of these companies is L.L. Bean. They have good quality products at great prices. I recently ordered some mocs from them. The mocs were delivered to the wrong address. I called L.L. Beans Customer Service Hotline. The representative listen to my problem and made sure she understood want the problem was and then turn me over to the right department who quickly took care of the problem. L.L. Bean even called a few day later to check to if I got my package. I did not so they sent a replacement to me at no charge. L.L. Bean's website is I will buy more products in the future from L.L. Bean because of the great customer service I received from them.

People to be Thankful For

This Thanksgiving Day let us take the time to give thanks for some people who may not be with their family on this day. Our military service men and women, police, EMS, and firefighters have answered the call to serve us. Many of them work on holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Since September 11, 2001, all these people have been working the front line in protecting our country. Remember to thank God for all these wonderful men and women.

Getting the Car Fixed

This month I have spend a lot money on getting my car fixed. My brother Tim and I replaced the rotors and brake pads on Sunday. The brake parts cost me $68. When my brother and I looked over the old rotors it looked like someone dropped one of them. We were going to replace the Drive Belt but in order to replace it you have to remove a motor mount. So I have to on to a service center to get it done. I already have the belt so I will only pay for the labor. I have been told it is hour and half job. That is $75 more then I have to pay all because of a motor mount. The belt cost me $20. Soon I am going have to do an oil change.

Go Vote it is Your Duty!

While tomorrow is Election Day. I will be glad when it is over. I am sick of all the lies that are being told. Since I was 18 years old I have only missed one election that I could vote in. I believe if you do not use your right to vote you lose your right to complain about the government. Even with all the bad thing about our system of government in the United States we still have the best government in the world. In saying that you can bet that I will vote tomorrow.

I found the following website a few weeks ago. I thought I share it today so tomorrow you can use it to keep up with the House and Senate races tomorrow.
