My apple and almond granola has no almonds in it. There are 3 sesame seeds, but no almonds. I was looking forward to the almonds. Someone should be held accountable for this. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
Please add your straws.

That stinks about the granola bar!!! My dh likes pop tarts. He bought some and held one up next to the picture on the box. The one in his hand had like a thin smear of frosting on one side. The one on the box had a full amount of frosting. Nice.<br><br><br>
My home health company. I posted <a href="http://phoenix.craigslist.org/rnr/316167038.html" target="_blank">this</a> on Craigslist. Felt better, called the superviser on Monday. She gave me a bunch of lame excuses, blamed the mistakes on the warehouse guys, promised to do better. The next day I got 25 500mL bags as promised. The day after that I got the extension tubes as promised. I waited and waited. The syringes never came. They still owe me four syringes. After all that, they still messed up the order. But forget it. I will just wait until next month. It would be easier to climb Mt Everest than to try to get those syringes.

Nitara does look really cute with the giant backpack on. Which just goes to show that your daughter could make a potato sack look adorable.<br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> You've been documenting all this and sending it to your insurance company, right? (eta: got to the end, way to go!)<br><br>
These aren't straws breaking the camel's back, they're freaking logs made from full-sized trees.

Thanks Sapphire. I'm actually laughing about it now. What else is there to do? At least I have extra syringes, no one's life is hanging in the balance because of this, and my girl is getting better and better. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> One of these days I will probably go down there with her and show them who they are dealing with, though. Maybe seeing her they will try a little harder.<br><br>
You don't know anyone who needs an ugly backpack do you? lol!

That backpack is the wrong dimension for everything I can think of. Maybe a musician could use it to carry a small instrument and music folders and a small stand?

<div style="font-style:italic;">That's just wrong. Apple and Almond granola should not be Apple and Three Sesame Seed granola.</div>

Now, the poptart icing smear would be enough to make me cranky, but add the syringes to the list, and I'd throw a full blown tantrum. I hope next month's order is correct!

We can't. No one else contracts with insurance to provide all the products she needs-- and I'd rather deal with one HH company rather than two. THat would be a nightmare.<br><br>
I didn't mean to steal the thread. Sorry!

I can relate, on a more unhealthy note.<br><br>
I bought a VARIETY pack of Drumsticks (the ice cream cones) - and that SHOULD have included vanilla, chocolate and caramel. I was looking forward to 3 of each. So WTHeck happened that there was only ONE caramel and the rest were plain flavored?! I almost wrote a letter.

USAmma, appologies are not even remotely warranted here! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

My brother asked to use my beloved minivan for a week or two. Now I have to drive my dh's beloved car. It's a jag. I can't eat or drink in it. I have to park a mile away from whatever door I'm trying to get to. It has no space for extra kids. It's down low and I'm use to being higher up when driving. It is very uncomfy to sit in. It is far too snobby for me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> And just all around not kid or mommy on the go friendly.

See, there are people who would wonder why you were complaining, but unless you're racing, who the <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/censored.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="censored">: *wants* to be in one of those cars? I seriously almost tripped on one when going to step off a curb once and they give me a backache just thinking about climbing in.
