Hi! New here, and I just had a horrible experience with a vet clinic. I've read here about people giving their stories about doctors and such, so I assumed this would be acceptable to post about! If not, just let me know and get it taken right down.

UTC due to the talk of death of a pet, and some information about her visit that might squick people out (needles, bodily functions) - also must note that the situation was somewhat resolved in the end but I'm still. Not. Happy.

Second cut has under it a nice little story of a worker at a local store calling an elderly woman stupid, while I was in hearing range. Not amused. Same worker later on refused to help my gramma and I find a DVD we were looking for.

*EDIT: for my horrible spelling and random words popping into my typing.

I went to get a pedicure and my eyebrows waxed earlier today at a place I'd never been before, so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I definitely didn't expect what ended up happening.

I was sitting in the pedicure chair and reading a magazine when the woman doing my pedicure looked up at me, pointed at my stomach, and asked, "Are you having a baby?" She laughed kind of awkwardly after I said no, and then apparently decided to dig the hole deeper and said, "You need to go on a diet!" Even later into the pedicure, after I'd gone back to reading the magazine, she points to herself and then to me and continues, "We need to exercise!"

She was trying to make it better, I know, but every time she said something she just kept making it worse. If she'd just stopped after the first question I probably wouldn't be posting this here.

"We Love Logistics", you say? Prove it.

Despite having our house number on EACH side of our driveway and up on the house, the UPS driver left the notice with my neighbor - who granted, hosts our mailbox on his property since we have post boxes on only one side of our street. This is fairly standard here on the Island.

Because my neighbor didn't get home until later, I didn't get that notice until late this evening. Not having that notice, I had called this afternoon and re-routed the packages to work (where I'll be when they attempt a re-deliver). Then UPS called at 9:30pm this evening to ask if I could pick it up tonight - in Burlington! That's 2 hours each way. No. So now we're trying desperately to get first thing delivery tomorrow morning before I go to work. They refuse to deliver to the bookstore where I work and receive UPS packages all day, anyway.

Meanwhile, the damn tracking number status states that I requested and agreed to pick the package up in Burlington. Which I never did. So I ask, where did that information come from? Oh, from the driver. THE ONE I NEVER SAW.

This beggers all logic. If I had seen him, I would have gotten my packages. Capische? But I never did, thus no packages. Therefore, no request and no agreement to pick them up tonight at the regional facility TWO HOURS AWAY! So not only is he incompetent, he's a liar. Which is pretty much our every experience with UPS.
