My wife and I had an opportunity to experience the amazing services that the Ronald McDonald House provides to families with children under hospital care. Their mission is to create, find, and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families, and they don’t fall short when it comes to following through.

It’s been almost 8 months since I dropped Sprint’s service, and I still couldn’t be happier with Verizon. Usually I post about negative experiences, but tonight’s call to the big red phone company has left me in a good mood.
So after more than a month of constant phone calls, emails, and even a few blog posts, I am happy to say that Sprint finally did the right thing and agreed to take back the phones. I don’t know if it was because of the aggressive promotion of my post about the issue, or if I just happened to get a sympathetic representative.

Hopefully their customer service is more customer-friendly. We’ll see. I was with Sprint for sixteen years. If Verizon is any better I’ll be with them for the next sixteen (and maybe more!).

I hopped out only to find the gas tank missing. Or on the opposite side of the car anyway. I swing the car around, and go to open the tank. It doesn’t open. I come back to the car to look for the release switch. There isn’t any! Continue reading
