First Day…

It’s my first day without work – this expiriment has begun. It’s raining, but this doesn’t bother me.

What does bother me – damnit – is that Sears decided not to show up for a scheduled repair. They just don’t come and don’t call – I called them and was told “rescheduling is the best option.” The other “option” however was simply that they wouldn’t come at all, because “really behind schedule” doesn’t actually mean they’re going to come.

Just insert a rant here about responsibility, corporate honesty and whatever here. Sears sucks.

So anyways, my head is pretty much splitting after the festivities last night. I went out with friends to celebrate my newly-minted unemployment, and it turned into a long night. Dr. Dremos and Ragtime in Arlington…I have vauge recollections of a glass dropping and shots.

    So, why are you unemployed? What’s the experiment?

    That’s funny, you and I probably crossed paths tonight. Congratulations on your new “occupation” of not having a job.

    As far as maintenance people are concerned … one strategy is to fudge your address or directions to your home a tiny bit — maybe leave off your apartment number — then make sure your mobile phone is the only number they have to reach you with. Then you can step out for short errands and be pretty sure they’ll call if you’re not in your actual place of residence.

    I hate Sears too. They fucked my on my repair service. My goal in life is to make anyone and everyone aware of the piss-poor Sears service that they pretend to offer their customers.

    Here is my rant:

    I had bought a Motorcycle/ATV lift form Sears last March, I used it last winter to store my new Harley on. Well I got it out of storage just last week and lifted my bike with it and when I started to move the bike the weld holding the collor that the handle sits into broke. Now I only used this once but because it was out of warranty (1year)Sears would not stand behind the quality craftsmanship that they brag about. If a weld on steal would not hold up to specification, what will?
    Sears SUCKS!
    I will never purchase another tool or product from SearsMart.

    Sears does not care about Customer Service. Have a problem? Call the Sears Executive Office @
    847-286-2500. Complain and keep complaining. Pass this telephone number on to all the sites you visit.

    Caution to all, Sears is still selling Ice Melter Plus manufactured by The Andersens. This product will cause extensive damage to your concrete. The label states SAFE on concrete, Vegitation and Carpet. Guess again. Get the MSDS from the manufacture and read carefully. Sears does not have the MSDS and the trained professionals in the Executive Office do not no what an MSDS is and they don’t care. The Sears Hardware Store nearby has ice all over the place and they don’t use Ice Melter Plus. What does this tell you? They would rather have a customer fall on the ice than destroy their concrete. They have skids load of this stuff.
    Don’t shop Sears. Have a problem? Call the Executive Office @ 1-847-286-2500.
