Irks, Excitements, and Reasons to Graduate Quickly

Hello to all. It's been about a month since I've gotten on here and written anything. A little minor thing called EDUMACATION keeps getting in the way.

Anyway, the reasons for today's post are three-fold. I wish to express my annoyances with recent things, my excitement about Jennie's and my life, and other things.

Recently, I've been very upset with my wireless phone provider. This past May, I renewed my contract with them and purchased a new phone, an LG Chocolate (the first version). The second generation of Chocolate had already come out, but this one was an approved, pre-owned version, and it was only 50 bucks.

By the time August came around, the touch-screen part of the phone had gone out on me, and without it, the phone is worthless. I can't do anything with it. I took it to the store in Idaho Falls to get it fixed/replaced. They replaced the phone saying it must have had some kind of software error. I accepted that and took the replacement. Little did I know that no more that two months later, the replacement phone would restart the starting process over and over and over again, without warning.

Since the loading process wouldn't stop, the phone never fully loaded. I was forced, yet again, to get a replacement Chocolate and lost all the contacts from my phone! Needless to say, I was fairly irked at this. I didn't want another Chocolate, but the phone company has a policy that they can only switch to a new model of phone after a certain number of times replacing the original model.

So, I gave my dad (the lead name on the account) a call. He pays the company for our family plan, so he gives this company a nice chunk of change every month. They called me up and offered to replace my 3rd Chocolate with a new LG Envy2, which I'm very happy with. All it takes to get what you want is pulling a few of the right strings.

How frustrating!! I am glad you were able to get a new phone. Hopefully that will have a nice long healthy life! How is Jennie feeling?
