My Friday was spent in airports and on airplanes. I joined DH after spending the holidays (and more) near my grandchildren. The travel experience has left me frustrated with the lack of personality in transactions these days (which makes me even more appreciative of the reasonable prices and excellent customer service at MyPicTales)!
The cable company would not sell me Internet (even though they are nationwide) unless I also paid for telephone or television. So I returned their box and modem. Since we live on wheels and in P O Boxes, we need to find providers of telephone, television, and Internet that will work at any given location. Phoning these companies is a ridiculous process — a recorded message offers menus and if you finally get to talk to a person, they don’t understand the question and/or don’t know the answers.
MyPicTales also offers quality workmanship with such attention to detail that they actually contacted me when my instructions were not clear — they wanted to get my order done the way I wanted it done! Wow!
My flights were wonderful; fortunately each was on time as I had booked allowing only 40 minutes between connections in two different airports. But trying to find information on the airline’s website or get a friendly person to talk to on the phone was impossible. I was extremely frustrated at having to pay an additional $25 for one small piece of luggage — omigosh, I’d paid plenty for my tickets and the flights were full!
DH and I have often wished that someone had written a book on retirement travel, giving tips and explaining the best way to purchase television, telephone, and Internet plans for those on wheels.
