    Just look for the Made in China label, if you see it, buy something else.

    We all knew this would happen. Oh Cathy…

    Good morning, Cathy clan!

    It’s as if there are no real people working the phones anymore.
    Good morning, Cathy clan!

    Boy, is Susan right about this one. Even though the strip is years old, it’s still the same today!

    I shop using LLBean’s catalog phone service. The phone is answered before 6 rings, and a REAL LIVE PERSON talks to you. No press one, two, etc. It’s like a miracle.

    The most annoying thing is when the website says to call the phone number, and the phone recording says to visit the website. That really makes me blow my top!

    I really love it when we’re having connection problems (VERY common here recently) and you try the inbuilt Troubleshooting thing. It can’t fix the problem (again) – so it tells you to go online and contact the Help department.

    I’m learning a new language these days.

    Oh, ha ha ha . . . got cut off again in the middle of writing this!

    This is why I am building a desk myself out of real materials. I don’t want to deal with either the shoddy workmanship or the horrid non-service. I suppose Cathy didn’t bother with woodshop, though.

    This desk was probably made in China and I don’t know of anything made there to exactly be of the finest quality so good luck getting any help or satisfaction from the store you bought it from. I’m sure all the rest of the “to be assembled” desk kits they have will no doubt be the exact same way as this one . . . peeling veneer, missing parts, etc. Once again, Cathy, good money not exactly well spent on your part! [Having said that though, no one deserves to be cheated out of their money no matter how smart — or dumb — they are!]


    Hi, rgciper!


    scrabblefiend: My husband and I have some CDs at Ally Bank. No matter what time of the day or night, no matter what day of the week it is [even on a Sunday], a real live person answers the phone in less than 6 rings when you call them — no recorded messages of any kind whatsoever. It’s very refreshing!


    Hello and happy Thursday, fellow “Cathy” fans. Hope everyone’s had a really nice day today!

    Doing much better thank you. Two months since the final chemo so the strength and stamina I gain daily actually stay with me.

    Taking our first longer road trip this weekend to visit my daughters and spend a day at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto. Really looking forward to it.

    Last blood test showed kidney function recovery had slowed down which leads us to believe that they will never fully recover – but they are good enough to last me for a few more decades anyway so I am not concerned.

    Should be getting my ‘fit to fly’ document from the doctor by the end of the month so can rebook the flights for our trip to Anona Mouse’s fair country next June.

    You could try saying “Representative”, Cathy. Or just saying nothing at all. In my experience, silence often connects you to a real person.

    Thanks for the update, hendelca, and keep us posted. Best of luck to you.

    HI, MOM. Greetings, Clan.

    Very good to hear you’re on the mend, hendelca! Hope you keep on getting better and better.
