Don’t text and horseback

by on Apr.17, 2013, under Random Observations, Rants

Really, is this guy really texting while horseback riding?  I just saw this picture in a Groupon that came in my email.  And, out of the 7 people on horses, 1 is on the phone and 1 is texting.  And, you can see, just like on the freeway, the texter is not looking where he is going and is dangerously close to rear-ending the other horse while the woman on the phone is clearly veering off the trail.

Just like starting over…

by on Oct.14, 2011, under Rants

So there has been quite a bit of “starting over” for me lately.

I recently decided to quit working for “the man” and decided to start “doing my own thing” again.  That has been a pretty bumpy ride so far.

After a long and drawn out process, the Wells Fargo Nightmare is coming to an end and the era of Chase has begun.  The shopping site is back up and running!!

And finally, there is this site.  I was assured by someone at GoDaddy that all I needed to do was simply copy all of the files from the old server to this server and…voila…no database connection.  By the time I realized what had happened, I had already deleted the old hosting account and associated database.

What are you gonna do?

And so, we start over…

Punked by Wells Fargo

by on Sep.14, 2011, under Rants

Back in July, 2011 I launched a new e-commerce website and needed a business checking account so I went to Wells Fargo in my neighborhood.

The day after setting up the account, I received a call from Eric in their “Merchant Services” department.  Eric ultimately sold me on Wells Fargo’s merchant services for being able to process credit cards for my new business.  One of the main selling points was the fact that “funds would be available in my account the day following the credit card transaction.”

My business relationship with Wells Fargo has been nothing short of a nightmare.  It has been so bad at times that I am convinced Ashton Kutcher will be jumping out telling me how bad I got punked any minute.

Here are some highlights from our short time together:

  • 9/14/2011 – “Where’s my money?”
  • 9/15/2011 – Mr. Robinson’s neighborhood!
  • 9/19/2011 – “We have reached a stalemate.”
  • 9/22/2011 – “Where do we go from here?”
  • 9/23/2011 – Account overdrawn.
  • 9/27/2011 – 24 hours…
  • 9/29/2011 – 24 more hours…
  • 9/30/2011 – By the end of the day…
  • 10/10/2011 – “I can do this all day”
  • 10/11/2011 – Account overdrawn…again.
  • 10/12/2011 – “By the way, your account has been canceled.”
  • 10/14/2011 – Really? More charges…again?
  • 10/20/2011 – In Collections Now.
  • 10/20/2011 – Jamie Lee doesn’t have the power.
