So my foray into the depths of awesome customer service continued yesterday when I went to pick up my medicine. I was prescribed what’s commonly known as a ‘Z pack’. It’s a 5 day antibiotic in a pre-measured pack with 6 (or more) tablets. If I say that it takes 1 minute to fill that kind of order, I’m overstating.

What happened to the days of good service? I thought it was just restaurants and gas stations that have lost good customer service, but today I found out that it hit my doctor’s office as well.sick

I received an out of the blue email message the other day from my old friend Sara. Sara and I were friends back in high school. We were in drama together and hung together outside of school as well. We haven’t seen each other in over 10 years, though we did communicate via email for a bit. That’s even fallen off, and I haven’t heard from her in over two years, since she told me she was getting married and I told her we were pregnant with twins!

This is a going to be both a normal post and a test. As for test, I am looking at a new blog writing tool from Microsoft called ‘Windows Live Writer’. It’s currently in beta, but is part of Microsoft’s push for new web based services. If you aren’t using a blog writer to post to your blog and are still struggling with editing/writing posts directly through your blog interface, you should look into a dedicated application.

So my friend Jason was just discussing this with me last month. He swears by it, and said how much better it made him feel. I was reluctant to belive him. Jean’s allergist recommended something similar, but it was more of a nasal spray cleaner then a true Neti Pot. Problem is, if you do it wrong, you wind up gagging on the water, or burning your nasal passages.. maybe this instruction video can be used to assist in using the spray. I can only imagine how much crap I have up my nasal passage. As long as a Muscle Man doesn’t fall out, I think I’d be willing to try it.

Hrm.. I closed the original reference that told me about this video.. I like to give credit where credit is due.. I think it was kottke.org but I’m on a roll with quick posts here and I’m not going to go back and figure it out.. I think I’m going to skip the Current Music links too.. I mean, this is a 60+ minute podcast..

Pulled from jwz, this video is making the rounds.. You feel sorry for the girl, but at the same time…. I dunno..I don’t think it’s a ever a question that I’m going to hell…The key here is whether she was really hurt or not.. The video has also been mashed up dozens of times.. Here’s a link to the original video if nothing else..
