Family Alleges Racism At Caswell County Pool

It is absolutely amazing that someone has the nerve to say something like the “pool associate” at Lakewood pool in Caswell County, NC (and to children no less). I recommend we mark this membership as blood-fearing racist and make their families wear this mark of a Neo-Nazis for many generations. You are without question the lowest forms of life on the planet. And make no mistake – I publicly chastise you and those like you and will train my childen to do the same. As should others. Be shamed and be damned. Your only recourse is to revoke your membership with this Nazi organization and denounce those among you who refuse to do the same.

This should be national news and the membership list should be released immediately so that we can mark these people among us accordingly.

The best I can hope for these people is that we soon elect a black president and majority of both houses. The corporate-owned white men certainly aren’t doing us much good. – News – Family Alleges Racism At Caswell County Pool

Verizon sucks. <- period.

All of this is documented fact that would hold up in court.

A couple of months ago I attempted to get DSL service provisioned by Verizon into a new facility location for Pack-Rat. They screwed up and cancelled the order three times only to re-open it every time. We even paid $49.00 to have a tech go out an install the service for us. They never showed for three scheduled appointments delaying our ability to open for business by two months. In the final call I made to Verizon regarding this provisioning I was told that the installation tech that was suppose to go on-site to install the service would not be available for a “truck roll” for another week. I indicated that was not acceptable. Verizon charged us for the install, no truck rolled and the rep actually asked me if I would “like to cancel” if the option of waiting another week was not to my liking. I cancelled. Covad’s getting the business.

But that’s not as bad as it gets. 2 weeks ago I called Verizon to get order a PRI for our corporate location in DC. We already have four analog lines with them in that location. I was told by the sales rep that we would have to be referred to a sales rep and the request would be “put in queue”. 2 weeks later – no call. So I called them this morning. I was told that the request was “picked up” by Russell Noll, someone I’ve never heard from.

Is Verizon in the business of selling telecommunications or not? They are no more than another company that got so busy with a large customer base they do not care one bit about new business or customer service. May their stock drop like Bell South’s and burn into bankruptcy and corporate corruption scandals. For the record, I’ve heard their cell coverage sucks from those I know stuck on one of their plans. Probably overloaded their network in this area.

And don’t even get me started on the voice prompts when you call Verizon customer service. They are truely a company that has lost the ability to make customers happy while generating new business. They’re like Republican’s in Iraq. They won the first round of the turf battle but now they’re neck deep into something out of their control. Could this be the beginning of the end?

August 1st

Yesterday was an unexpected series of events. A whole lot of stuff happened good and bad. It started off real bad then it got great….

I installed the new Pack-Rat BlackBerry server at our hosting location Peak 10. After getting it into the rack I was looking at the back of the server to check which port I had the network cable plugged in to. Out of nowhere the end of an industrial zip tie that was holding together some cables sprang loose and hit me straight in my right eye. I walked out with blood dripping from my eyelid down my face. Nice. I went to Urgent Care and other than not being able to sleep much last night everything’s okay. It feels like I’ve got sand in my eye.

But that didn’t stop me from going to the driving range last night where I FINALLY GOT RID OF MY SLICE for the season. No more over the top. I remembered the rule: Always release – do not pull. And that would be the best news of the summer except for one other thing I found out yesterday:

Amy is pregnant again. Connor is going to have a little brother or sister by March of next year. She’s just as excited as she was the first time. I love her. And my little man.
