I hate (in no particular order)

Sony- My Vaio was not charging so I sent it in to Sony. They have no idea where my computer is and no idea of when it will be fixed.

Nextel- I paid my bill on July 10th. My payment cleared on July 11th. Yet, they disconnected my phone while I was waiting for a call from Sony. Now, they want to charge me a $30 reconnection fee. I’d like to see them try.

Dawn Summers- She’s just the worst, isn’t she.

Delta- My flight last night was delayed for an hour, for no reason that I was able to discern. Then, they boarded us on this tiny plane that you actually had to board by going outside and up the stairs. The flight only served pretzels (good thing that they asked me twice what kind of meal I would like and good thing I said vegetarian). They sat me near the bathroom in one of those seats that couldn’t lean back. Sigh.

you must have been on one of those puddle-jumper flights by Delta? i have always had a great experience with them, and your post sounds more like a little tiny plane i took from salt lake to palm springs. is that the case, or was this something else?

Oh, and candace forgot to say that Dawn Summers is not only not the worst, she’s very nearly the best.

I had a similar problem with Sony except with a bookshelf speaker. After 3 months they tracked it down somewhere in Japan and sent it back to me…it had never even been opened and hence still broken.

Oh, Karol, you’re so funny and elitist sometimes. Those puddle-jumpers are sometimes the only option out in the sticks. With the exception of Continental, EVERY time I go home, I have to do the walk on the tarmac thing. And they once caught an alligator on the runway at Lafayette airport in Louisiana.
And Dawn Summers is … well, ‘the worst’ seems a bit strong for a rather harmless Democrat. It’s not like she REALLY believes all that stuff, right? I mean she SEEMED almost rational that one time I met her. (almost) Smart people don’t REALLY believe Kerry has a shot, do they?
