You should report him. I think Amazon would rather have you than him.
Definitely report this person. I've never gotten a response like that from anyone at Amazon. I agree with RJ, they'd rather have you than this person. This person could lose them customers.

Re: Infirmary Thread #16: LOL Is The Best Rx

Met my new Rheumatologist and had my x-rays, on Friday. First, I really like the new RA doc. She was actually there in person, she listened, we talked for an hour! and she is also a teaching doctor, so she knows more than the average RA doc. Plus, she knows a lot more than RA, so she checked my back...

Re: The Weather: The Coming of Spring.

We hit 43F on Thursday, melting a bunch of snow, and giving us mud in places. Dropped down to 10F on Friday, freezing said melting snow and mud. Today it was sunny and 23F, with some more melting and mud. Tonight, it is snowing. :conf:

Re: The Weather: The Coming of Spring.

We actually saw the sun today, and temps around 20F. Plus, my brother dug out the drive at the farm, so I could actually pull up to the house. Greatly appreciate the mad mower/plower neighbor, but when he plowed yesterday, the plowed path was pretty tight. Basically, it was one UTV width, which is f...

Re: The Weather: The Coming of Spring.

So, the storm that went through a couple of days ago, wasn't really done with us. The tail end of it came up and smacked us pretty good. We have about a foot of snow and high winds. Oh, it's time to head out. If I don't make it back, remember me and think of me kindly. :lol: ^^ Yikes, yikes, and mor...

Okay, I tried my new blood pressure cuff. Yep, pressure is high. However, the cuff may now be questionable, since it retried several times, then turned my hand red while it crushed my arm. It did fine the first few times I tried it, but this afternoon I think it came to life. :Ahhh: ^^ I'm glad your...

Re: Pet Pictures- paws and jaws.

I think Cayli qualifies as a pet. She is just bigger than the average house pet.

When we had the warm up, we had fog:

On a happier note...the sunrise is now at 7:30am, and it sets at about 6:00pm. The birds are already returning from the South. They are large flocks flying overhead, and stopping in the bare trees. I can hear different ones singing, during the day. As much as I long to get past the shortest day, I ...

I hate to say it, because it might jinx me, but my knee feels better today. I only needed one dose of knock-off Excedrin migraine, instead of two. I will need a dose of aspirin before bed, but that's still better. Here is a scary thought...the ER did not have a doctor on staff. There was only a Nurs...

That was actually pretty nice of her. When you cancelled, did you tell them why?

Re: The Weather: The Coming of Spring.

If you count windchill, we had a turn around of 100 degrees. If you count actual temps, it was 70 degrees.

We are supposed to get up to 32F today, but we are under a winter weather advisory because they expect more freezing rain. Like yesterday's wasn't enough. :P

How long until Spring? :conf:
