Its what is going on today, in all areas ...is like the idiots that
answer the tech support line and after asking and telling your problem,
they say to hold on while they check something and they will be right
back...they never do, and if u hold on long enough u eventually get the
dial tone again...the reason? they know shit and the company that hires
them, are even shittier for hiring anyone without asking if they are
experience. Speaking of Loews I recently went to them to ask them to
send me a measurer for my storm door replacement. I had to pay up front
$30 for that and was told that if I continue to let them do the
installation they would deduct that amount from the entire cost, and if
I don't I lose it. When the day arrived for the measurer, I saw who
they sent and I thought I was watching one of those old movies that was
called Ma & Pa kettle, only they had deep russian accent. My door
opening was not the normal size, so it had to be custom made. Right
from the beginning i knew they were measuring it wrong and they
wouldn't listen to me and they wouldn't even give me the sizes. I told
them I was going to report them and they said '''go ahead' and drove
off. At least I was able to get my $30 back...Its the companys that
hire these help...apparently they do not want to pay top prices for
knowledgable workers, so we get stuck with those that aren't.
It's genetic. There was a Dilbert cartoon about auto mechanics that's
Dilbert: "I think it's the carburator."
Mechanic: "You think it's what?!"
Dilbert: "Oh. Sorry. I think it's the #$%*&* carburetor."
Mechanic: "Well, why didn't you say so?"
If anybody cares, just thought I'd relay what was the eventual
outcome. I called up a large plumbing firm and they were so nice to
come out the same day. I took to heart what others said about a dirty
house and cleaned up and added some aroma therapy and had a drink
ready. While waiting for the new plumber I called Lowes. The contract
manager told me the person they sent was not authorized to do the
"rough plumbing" that was needed. The new plumber came in and talked
me out of replacing the old toilet and just refurbished the old one and
did put in the new pipe. Out come is I have a toilet that is not low
flush, I saved a heap of money and Lowes gets nothing except one less
customer in the future.
