Stupid Is As Stupid Does at the Bank



Seriously? Seriously! I am still reeling over the stupidity of the customer service reps that work the phones at one of my banks. I checked my balance today and noticed a large sum of money had been deposited in my account.
No I have not had an affair with Tiger Woods and was not expecting a pay out ;0)
I am honest and I called the bank to find out who, when and where this deposit came from.

Idiot number one, let's call him Forrest; "Um well, close your account and take the money, it's money." Then I swear to the baby Jaysus he made a Beavis and or Butthead-esque laugh. After a pause, I demanded to speak to a supervisor in charge. He argued w/ me for a minute and was trying to pronounce a word that I later realized was "electronic"...seriously and no, he was American, English as a first and very slow language. "The bank is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get!"

Idiot number two, let's call him George; "It isn't illegal to close your account and just take the money, my associate was just saying you should take it."

After a slur of curse words that I didn't even now I had the talent to string together ran through my head in a ticker-tape format, I calmly asked this guy to repeat what he had said because I couldn't believe my fucking ears.

He did repeat it, and I said, "tell this to me like I'm a two year old, you are saying I should close the account and take the money?"

Then George said that I could, it was my option and that there was fraud going on, and I explained that money was put in, not taken out and he told me that. . .and I am not that good of a writer to make this up. . ."fraud comes in all ways and I should take it, close the account and open a new account, or I will have to deal with filling out paperwork."

Neither of these two geniuses looked up my account, or anything.

To the people of the world,

This is the reason that the USA is in banking crisis, they hire people with IQs lower than a sponge and then wonder why things get fucked up.

I am just sayin'!

    I certainly hope not, I don't think Elin Woods is done with her golf club yet.

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…

Where Has Customer Service Gone? Taos Footwear is Horrible

AVOID TAOS FOOTWEAR unless you want to be treated like shit.
Usually I like to take the high road and let things go, but after thinking about this for the last 24 hours, I'm afraid to say that I can't not tell what happened when I returned a pair of shoes that didn't fit me to Taos footwear.

First of all, I love their shoes. I ordered four pairs at $100 or more in less than a month, but they don't care about that, they just needed to be right and right meant downright abusive and awful to a paying customer.

Beginning of June, I order a pair of Taos shoes and love them.
End of June, I order a second pair, the Hey Jute because they were on sale for only $100 instead of $130.

The canvas is super tight so I call them up and speak to a woman, Lisa I believe is her name, she was amazing BTW, she is the only one who is decent at this company-or at least who I have talked to.  She said if they were hurting my feet to return them, but they didn't pay for shipping. I wasn…
