verizon etc

April 4th, 2017 at 01:13 pm

I'm trying to switch from Verizon postpaid to prepaid service. I was on the phone with them for an hour. They transferred me to five different people, hung up on me once, charged my credit card, and now my phone doesn't work. I'm waiting for a call back (to a landline) that may or may not occur within the next 90 minutes. Not cool. If they can actually accomplish this, I should save $17 a month. UPDATE: They never called me. I called back and finally connected to a human only through blind luck. I'll now have to fight the first credit card charge because they "lost" it, but it was that or be without a phone for 10 days. Zero apologies from them. I'll save $204 a year but my hair is exponentially grayer.

I finished my third antibiotic last weekend but I'm still sick. I'm not sure if this is the same infection or if I've caught something else. I really don't want to take another round of antibiotics.

I took a free online home buying class today and - wow. I'm saving as much as I can right now but even that doesn't seem like enough, even if I did it consistently for the next 10 years. A friend recommended I talk to a loan officer; I might do that anyway.

Last weekend I spent some time making pros and cons lists for several different aspects of my life - moving, job, higher education. Getting a car loan or a student loan at this point would greatly reduce my home loan possibilities. An advanced degree would probably help me eventually obtain a higher salary, if only I could decide what I want to do.

I watched a Ted Talk on "multipotentialites" - people with lots of different interests and career possibilities who end up job hopping instead of picking "one true calling". It made me feel a little better about my scattered resume. I still wish I could find a calling, though...

    Very sorry to hear that you are still sick with your sinus infection. A few years ago I was sick for 9 months with chronic sinus infections, the symptoms basically eased off when I changed my diet to drastically reduce milk and soda and increase fruit, vegetables and switch from white grains to mainly whole grains; as well as adding a probiotic to my diet to increase immunity. I also saw a specialist to check that there were no polyps inside my nose which could be causing the infection (there wasn't but on one side I have a slightly deviated septum; however it is not deviated enough to warrant an operation). Good luck with it all and hoping you get better; it is a nasty thing to be sick with and for so long.

    Thanks, VS_ozgirl! I'm so sorry to hear you were sick for 9 months - how awful! I am a vegan, so I basically do all of that including the daily probiotic, soy yogurt, and kombucha. I'm really hoping this is just a second round of cold symptoms and it will clear up soon!

    Thanks Kashi hi, it certainly was a tough time. Sounds like you have pretty good eating habits so it wouldn't be that. Hope it clears up really soon!
