A few minutes to blog

August 29th, 2011 at 05:06 pm

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind. As any educator can tell you, the first few weeks of school is wild. There are always things that come up that even if you have things planned, other things have to be done. I spent most of Saturday cleaning so I could work most of Sunday on school work.

Sears update: I guess my calling the national offices and complaining because the local Sears manager didn't call back must have hit a nerve. I spoke with 4 different people. One lady said she oversees the installers and another lady said she was in the corporate office. The first said she would send me a $25 gift card for my trouble with the installer. The other said she would be sending me a letter of apology. Well, both were true to their word. I received the $25 gift card a week later. The next day no letter of apology, but a $50 gift card. Not bad overall, but I don't think I'll ever buy another appliance from Sears. I had to complain about complaining to get any action. And still nothing from the local store...no phone call, letter, or email. DH and are spent the money on exciting, but necessary items like underwear and socks.

I spent a big part of Saturday fixing casseroles for this week. It sure is nice to have them when I come home from work and pop them in the oven. I can make a salad and we have supper.

Guess I better get back to my "homework."

    I have to say I'd take $50 in gift card over the letter of apology. Especially if you won't be buying appliances from them again. Good for you for following up and holding the company accountable Smile

    I once had a Sears installer who damaged my gas line, and no matter what I did, I never got any compensation from them. I didn't go to the headquarters level, however. I avoid Sears now, too.

    $75 beats a poke in the eye. Smile

    You sound like my husband...he says the same thing about something being better than a poke in the eye. I am not complaining about the $75! Far better than I anticipated, actually. I guess it pays to complain, yet not scream and yell.

    Hey, $75 can lead to a lot of undies and socks! Smile And at least you have the insurance that you know they heard you at some level.
