This isn’t politics-related, just an example of a company providing exceptional customer service that I thought should be noted publicly.
A couple of weeks ago–1 July, to be exact–I ordered an item from Amazon. It wasn’t that expensive, between $25 and 30, and because I wasn’t in a big hurry for it I specified their Free Super Saver Shipping. Because of the 4th of July weekend and the fact that free shipping is usually the slowest means out there, they gave me an estimated delivery date of the 11th.
Open thread for posting your memories of where you were and what you were doing on 9/11 eight years ago.
There will be no–I say again, no–posting of political opinions in this thread, including but not limited to “Truther” theories.
As for me, I was working nights at the time, and had gotten up around 1 pm to get ready for work. I turned on Fox News, saw what was happening, and immediately called my parents with the question, “why didn’t you call me and wake me up?”
Work that night was very somber. We dealt with a lot of stuff that came in via airplane from nearby states, and of course with all flights canceled, there was a mad scramble to figure out how to get the stuff to us, since most of it was time-sensitive, and at the time we had no idea how long the planes were going to be grounded. At least half the staff had brought in portable radios (including me), and were listening for news of another attack, which, at the time, we thought was at least possible.
Okay, enough of my memories… where were you and what were you doing that September morning?
Hello all at ACW. I have been an absentee for a few days due to surgery and recovery (without nationalized health care, mind you). I know I’ve missed a lot of news, current events, etc., but I’m glad to be back. I might not post as frequently as I have before because I will be devoting much of my time and attention toward starting up a business. I’m hoping that I won’t be making more than 250…I mean 200…I mean…150 thousand dollars a year. That way, I will not be contributing too much of my income to the Obama-leftist “Save the Slackers/Nationalized Health Care/Save the World” fund.
