Expensive Lessons, Lies and Idiot Employees!
The website if you want to order any of the Norwex products or read the information on why they are different than most Micro-Fiber cloths. This lady is a friend of my daughter Karen and is a Norwex representative.

I feel kind of bad for Bernie Sanders. His campaign was funded by 10-20 dollar contributions and right from the beginning, the DNC was out to get him. How unfair, because many liked his message and agreed with him. Yet the DNC let him go ahead, mile after mile of campaign stops, speeches, while all along, they knew they wouldn't allow him to have a chance at the nomination. The Sander's people found out about it early on and demanded Wasserman be made to be fair, but.........
My Liberal friends that were chortling last week about the protests and noise at the RNC convention, have been strangely quiet since the news of the leaked e-mails has come out. I heard tonight that the DNC will not allow Debbie Wasserman Schultz to "retire" AFTER the convention--they fired her this afternoon.
Still really hot and humid. Even at night, when the temperature gets down to the 60's, it is still too damp to open the windows and try and get fresh air into the house. I did go out today--a run up to the Print Shop. I have had no problems with the two women I have worked with up there. They seem to understand what I need and how I want my "pedigrees" printed out.
The sheets that I have printed and then taped together--sometimes are 36" wide. They must be 11" long so they will fit and be bound in on the left side of the book. If they are extra long, I fold them into the book.
No problem. The print shop has landscape paper on a continuous roll, so I get whatever width I need.
For some reason, the last two times I have been up there, the woman Office Manager thinks she needs to do my copying for me. She has yet to get it correct--no matter how many times I explain it to her.
I had 7 pedigrees to get printed today. Only one was on 11 x 17" paper. The rest were 24 to 36" wide.
I went over with her what I needed. "I need the print-out to be 11" long--precisely 11" long. It doesn't matter how wide they are, but I have put the measurements on the post-it note for each pedigree."
She comes back with one at 11 x 17--the rest, the correct width, but the length was 20 some" inches long so they all had to be trimmed.
I explained, "That's a lot of extra work--to trim them. You have a copier that you can set with the correct measurements. Eleven by whatever width you need." Her reply, "Well on these longer ones, I would have to change the roll to a different size paper."
Well then, change the damn roll and give me what I want! I wanted to say, but didn't. One of the girls I used to work with was sitting at a desk behind the Office Manager and I saw her roll her eyes. Why can the regular employees know how to do it correctly, but the Office Manager doesn't and...won't ask for help?
It was a frustrating day all around! Last week, while sitting in my recliner knitting, I heard a crackling sound coming from behind my chair. I thought it was coming from the outlet as that is all that is behind my chair. It happened 3 times, so I pulled the plug. The next day, I called an electrician.
He came out this morning at 9:00. $89.95 to get in the door. I had two GFI plugs I wanted put in.
He checked the outlet behind my chair--"not a thing wrong with it" he said. "No burnt areas or smell, nor dampness. It looks like new."
Then I asked if he could install the GFI plug in the outlet where my electric fireplace is going. He wanted to know why. "You don't need GIF plugs in any rooms other than the kitchen and bathroom. They protect against electrical shock where water might be present."
So I explained that I had "heard" that the electric heaters used in the electric fireplaces can sometimes overheat and cause a fire. He just shook his head "no" and went on to explain to me why there was no need.
He suggested that I get a new surge protector with a GFI built-in, if I were really concerned.
So--a 90 dollar lesson on electricity this morning. ARGGH! I will take my two GFI plugs back to Lowe's tomorrow and get a couple of new surge protectors.
I had a house fire back 30+ years ago caused by an electrical short, so I am always worried about things like that.
Dentist appointment tomorrow. UGH!!
