Sears Finale?

Sears rawr finale:  Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5.
Oh, Sears.  How you continue to disappoint me.  I was expecting the technicians between 7 and 8 AM this morning.  I got a call from Sears at 7:45 AM saying that the technicians were on their way.  They didn't actually show up until about 9ish.  Fortunately, I didn't have any meeting or calls at work, so I could monitor emails at home while waiting for these guys to show up.  The techs that showed up were the same ones that came to my house the first time.  Oh, joy.  You again.

The guy asked me what I needed done, and I told him that I wanted the UV light removed and some screws on the vents replaced.  ::confused look from technician::  "Oh, you won't get your money back."  I thought my head was going to explode and that my temper was going to flare out of control from my frustration.  I calmly told him that I had previously talked to Sears about this and yes, I will get my money back.  He said that he had to call in to confirm the job. Oook.  I looked at the invoice when I was signing it and it said "Remove UV light and fix/replace screws."  Hello?  The job description is right there!  Anyway, the technicians were in and out in about 20 minutes.  Now all I need is the reimbursement check and I'm going to be done with Sears for, like, ever.

Peanut butter: I was making a PBJ sandwich this morning, and I scoop it out of the jar...only to have a plop onto the kitchen floor.  UGH...

At the office: I decided to hang out in the main building this morning and hang out with Jennifer (my former office mate).  I hear a knock on the door behind me.  It's one of the directors.  "Hi, Tina.  I need some cards.  I had been thinking about going to the store to get some, but then I walked by and saw you sitting there, and it just clicked in my head that I could get you to make them."  Good thing I was sitting here this morning!  I also got an email from Human Resources saying that they needed 30 birthday and anniversary cards.  Looks like I'll have some crafty stuff to work on this week...and then I can actually use that money to buy crafty things.  Not like on Saturday where I spent the money on gas. :P

Etsy: Ending the day with a good note...I got my 700th sale on Etsy today!  The origami panda mail card is heading to Australia.
