The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you. ~John E. Southard
So I’ve been lax in the blog department…….not so lax around here though. It’s the time of year where we have cattle scattered out and lots of waterholes to cut everyday. I get SO tired of chasing to waterholes….especially the kind that the Bossman insists on but such is life…..I just do it. We kicked the heifer calves over the hill yesterday after moving bale feeders and making a place for them to lay down. We still have a good eight inches of snow and under that is lots of ice. We saddled a couple of horses and spent a half hour just trying to chase them out of the feedlot. Not so nice on a warmish day when the snow balls up in your horses feet and the ground is slick as snot on a doorknob. Good thing Kits came out and gave as a dogs hand or we would have been there all day. She, at least, could get around without falling on her butt. I rode Snick and he was feeling pretty fresh……spooked a couple of times and just about lost the old girl ;) We got our new truck home…..complete with a new bale deck…..had to take it BACK to the place where they put the bale deck on it…..the first trip was to get a side rail put on that they failed to send the first time and the second trip was to fix an oil leak. I don’t know what’s wrong with business’s lately but I sure get tired of people doing only half a job and expecting ME to pay for it. I had a fight with our insurance broker (yes…..I can get RUDE) the other day. A while back I made a special trip to Hanna to pay our yearly vehicle licence fees and insurance. I had to transfer the plate from the old truck to the new one……the old truck AND the new one is and was in both of our names but they wouldn’t let me transfer the plate without Terril being there to sign it. So stupid, it cause us to make ANOTHER trip to town to get that done. In the meantime I switched the insurance and wanted to pay it all that day….the broker couldn’t figure out what the new truck was going to cost and said they’d just send us a bill. I got THAT yesterday and there was a five dollar service charge for them SENDING me the bill……I called and asked why the charge…..she should be paying me the $5 as she couldn’t do her job when I went in to pay. She took it off!! The bank! I went in there the other day and checked our saving’s account…..there was a $15 service charge…..”what for” I asked…….apparently any time I’ve used my debit card in the last year on that account there’s a $5 service charge each time. “When did that change” I asked and was informed that they changed it a year ago. We have a “financial advisor” that was suppose to tell us. I made them go back and give me back the extracted funds they stole as we hadn’t been ADVISED! I would have fired the creep but as they won’t I think we’ll be changing banks as soon as both of us can make an appointment (another rant as apparently nobody wants to take our money without a stinkin’ appointment that has to be made in advance) to sign the papers at a different institution! I think a jam can in the backyard would be a vast improvement but nobody even uses cash anymore. ENOUGH! I (or somebody) needs an attitude adjustment!
Sometimes I feel like doing like this dog!
