Didn't even know there was a medical 'theme' going on here, this'll fit right in.

A little back story:

I have TMJ, have since I was a kid. The reason for this TMJ is the fact that my jaw joints are not symmetrical, I know this too. I went and saw specialists when I was around 12, they told me the only way they could fix it is if I got surgery. Since at the time, the only problems were that it'd lock a lot if I wasn't careful, the thought of major jaw surgery to fix something minor wasn't that great, so I decided against it and they agreed, because it wasn't that bad. I've lived my life being careful, I don't eat apples, I don't chew gum, etc.

Beginning of August, my 3 year old son and I were playing around and I got a swift headbutt (accidentally, he's a sweetheart) to the side of my jaw.

It dislocated.

And thus starts a solid 2.5 months of bad service.

ULTIMATE suck

I recently got my own place. Unfortunately, it's in low-income housing(I'm an American, and our subsidized housing is like something out of A Clockwork Orange. Recently I found myself in a situation in which I was asking myself "What would Alex do?"["What's it going to be then, eh?"]

Management tends to shut off the air conditioning. This wouldn't be so bad if it weren't an unseasonably warm October--it was in the high seventies today. The heat wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the fact that one of my neighbors died.

And began to decompose. In his apartment.

Long story short, by the time management got to it, he'd been dead for about three days and the odor of death, which smells strongly of piss, had permeated my entire floor. Management didn't give us any formal notice--just said that a tenant had moved out due to death--and didn't turn on the AC so we could ventilate our apartments. I went out to CVS, burned the largest scented candle I could find, opened my windows and prayed for the best. It took about half an hour for me to get the smell out.

Wouldn't it be ironic if he died due to the heat?

Oh, and the AC's still off.
bad experiences, the french fry incident, bad service

drat and double drat. damn you capital one!!

in a follow up to this post about capital one...

the good news: i've FINALLY received my new (and boring and plain) new rewards card.

the bad news: i can't call to activate it.

WTF??

i tried both the "activate your card now" and the "customer service" 800 numbers. both of them give me one ring, ~30 seconds of dead air, and then a fast busy tone.

HTH do i have two capital one cards that don't work?

i hate you capital one. i really do. i hope someone sends the maruaders for you.
