I've had one heck of a day today. The highlights are as follows:
I got my replacement MKIII today. The good news it came with all expected knobs and seems to sound just fine. The bad news I got nailed for duties A SECOND TIME. Because dumb ALO didn't mark on the package the amp was a replacement unit I now have to go through the aggravation of trying to get my money back from customs.
For whatever reason today I had to put up with a slew of very rude arrogant people and a even bigger slew of people who thought they were to good to pay two bits for a bus ride. Someone being down on their luck I can understand but when it's just some fancy dressed so and so who happens to live in a upper middle class area of suburbia whose trying to scam a ride because he/she thinks they can I see red. Needless to say those kinds of people disgust me especially when they can easily afford a bus ride. All I have left to say on the subject is my dad was right. Just because someone has money or likes to act like they have money doesn't mean they have any class.
As you all may know I've had power outages in my area of town over the last few days. This afternoon while I was at work the freaking power went out yet again this time while my mom was on her computer. Twenty minutes later the power was restored. When my mom turned on the computer her tower powered up OK but the 21 inch monitor I bought her as a Xmas gift 2 years ago didn't. Because Manitoba Hydro is run by a bunch of incompetent boobs my moms monitor which was a gift from me was fried by some stupid power surge. I've since called the power companies customer service line only to be given the run around by some Jane Lunch Pail with a condescending attitude who couldn't be bothered to hit a couple of buttons and provide a number for this sort of complaint. Her attitude changed rather quick when I tore her a new one and told her I was going to lodge a complaint concerning her incompetence. After hanging up and recalling the customer service line and talking to someone else I was promptly given a number to call tomorrow and supposedly someone there should be able to give me some answers concerning my demand that the stupid power company replace my moms monitor.
I'm sorry ladies and gentlemen for waltzing in on the thread breathing so much fire. On the good side of the coin I have my replacement MKIII setup on my laptop desk driving my M-100's as I type this. I have BPM Magazine's That Trance Mix 2 CD spinning and it's slowly starting to mellow me out. So was everyone elses day as fun filled as mine?
Sorry your day sucked.
Good to know. In that case, you should be in the clear as far as that's concerned.
