Just a Day to Vent

  1. Thanks for flipping off today – what a mess with the escalator!
    Hope your therapy continues to go well – 6 weeks in a brace, man!
    If you want to link to mommakiss or kludgymom next time, let me know :p

  2. Visiting from the Friday Flip Offs blog hop…OUCH..I’d be pissed if I wasn’t called too, that is a one big cut!

  3. I love how a chunk of skin is missing and they call it a scratch. Yeah, right! Nice to know that they aren’t worried about it…..

    I wonder if the employee was some 18 or 19 year old, who wasn’t a parent and had no idea how to handle this. You would think that the store has a policy if people get hurt.

    If a child so much as gets a scratch at our church, we are supposed to fill out an incident report, sign and date it and make sure that the parent gets a copy.

    And yes, if my son’s toe got hurt (especially if it bled and had a chunk missing like yours did) I would want to know about it.

    I love your blog and I tried to click on your feed so I could get it on my Google Reader but it won’t let me. Does your feed go to google or do I need to get it by email? I did see the email option but I prefer the reader so was trying to do it that way.

  4. Glad it wasn’t just me that thought I should have been called with this little toe scratch. And to answer your question, yes it was a teenager that did the report. I used to belong to a gym and if you even scratched yourself managers would show up, plus staff just to write up a report, very similar to your church and that is the way it should be.

  5. Amy, we went through the same thing with an appraisal last year. The company we had applied to picked the appraiser, not us, and he mismeasured, but also lowered our value *because we were installing new carpet in our bedroom that day and the upstairs was a mess*. I’m serious. We had applied through a very reputable, well-known bank, but should have stopped the minute the loan officer assigned to us wanted to know what FITW on my husband’s pay stub meant! We paid for the appraisal, too: $400 down the drain when we could least afford it.

  6. What a bummer. We actually went through all the steps to make them change it when we didn’t we went to our credit card company, complained and they have refunded the money.
