ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb 25

  I spent 2 hours on the phone, trying to put  my daily New York Times on vacation hold. They had no record of my being a subscriber. Someone has delivered my paper every morning. At Christmas I got a card from my carrier . I use automatic pay for my subscription . I know that I am a subscriber to the paper. 7 days a week of terrible ,stomach wrenching news.How can they say that they don’t have me on their records. Employees follow a script and they just can’t deviate, I asked if maybe they could check with their local carrier here in Venice. No, they had to have me as a subscriber before they could do that. I finally went on line, gave myself a password and did it electronically. I think it can be said that electronics have actually  replaced the human.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
