At this point, I'd be ecstatic to get any service at all.

My front porch roof leaks when it rains. It's not a huge leak (not yet). But I'd like to get it fixed before winter gets here (I live in SW Pennsylvania, and we get quite a bit of winter here).

I have called three different roofers in the last two weeks. Only one of them has called back. He said he'd try to come by last Saturday, and if not Saturday, then he'd definitely come on Tuesday.

He didn't show up on Saturday. He didn't show up on Tuesday. He hasn't called, and he has my home phone number and my cell number.

I called his number on Thursday, explained to the receptionist/secretary/assistant/whatever that I was extremely unhappy that this guy had not shown up or called, but I was willing to give him another chance if he'd just call and set a time and actually show up.

He hasn't called. Neither of the other two roofers has called at all, and I chose all three because they were Better Business Bureau accredited. I'm not going to pay a fee to join Angie's list, before anyone suggests it, and there is a fee in my area.

I don't understand what the problem is. I can't pay someone for services rendered if they won't even call me back to set up the service in the first place. How do they stay in business?

Forgetting About Patients is a no-no

I woke up with a weird red rash-looking thing on my neck. Also my face and eyelids were red-purple so I went to the emergency room as it was on such short notice. I understand there is going to be a wait. So when they got me in relatively fast I was happy, until they took my blood and urine sample to test. It took a while, so while I was waiting, I asked the nurse if the tests has come back. She said yes they have, the doctor just has to speak with me about it. I'm like, cool, i'll get to leave and maybe even get to go to work today, as I had to call in to come here. So I waited another 2 HOURS and finally a lady comes in and just asks if I had an IV, I said yes and she undid it and handed me a form to sign, which said that I had no other questions for the doctor. Thoroughly confused I stared at her and she askes if I did have any other questions. I told her that they didn't give me my results. Come to find out the doctor and nurses forgot about me and were just going to give me release papers to go...This is the same hospital that stuck me with an IV 3 times last time and still couldn't get a vein.

I did find out the redness was broken blood vessels caused by vomiting, but they didn't know when it would go away...
