This Whole Thing Is Kind-of Disgusting

I just finished cleaning the bathroom upstairs. It took me about three hours. I know, that's pretty sick. I don't think I've ever seen it that clean (and I've lived here for three years). I guess I've never seen it this clean because it's never been cleaned like this the whole time I've lived here. That may make me sound pretty disgusting, but keep in mind that I really didn't use anything but the toilet and sink for the first two years I lived here, so why would I clean like this? I guess now that everyone, except Lori, moved out, I have the bathroom all to myself (Lori also has her own also). So I guess now, I feel like I can clean it like crazy because no one but me will use it, so it won't get dirty so fast. I can't believe I've been talking about this for so long, but I'm really excited. I even used a toothbrush in the cracks to get all the grime out!!

On to a different topic...yesterday I cut my finger on the cheese grater. It really hurt. I remember last week I had even though, "hmmm, I've never cut myself on a grater, I wonder how people do that?" Well, I can tell you, it happens when you're really hungry, because you're grating as fast as you can so you can eat. Then, the cheese slips...I think you can imagine the rest. Anyway, it's painful.

I guess I've rambled about random things long enough. I should maybe read now. Talk to y'all later!

My Rant - Part 2

Disclaimer: The following blog is about how much I continue to hate MTS and how confusing and annoying they are. If you don't want to hear me complain anymore about them, stop reading right now. I think this will be the last installment to this never-ending saga!

ok, so yesterday, my roommate that moved out (and MTS was in her name) called me because she got a letter from MTS saying that she was going to be billed for some stuff. I don't remember exactly what it said, but the point was that we were going to get cutoff unless we figure out our MTS account and switch names. BUT, I had already called to change names. Apparently the guy I spoke to didn't do that. So now, I'm pretty ticked off. I sat on the phone for so long because it's a stupid system...and then nothing happened! The guy didn't even do anything!

So, today I called MTS and explained the situation (I started off by telling this dude that it was going to take a while...he laughed at me. Apparently MTS workers just like to laugh at anything that people in my house say - I'm not sure how we should take that). So, I explained the situation and then he told me that I wasn't allowed to do anything and my roommate has to call MTS and make the change. At least this guy realized that I was getting pretty ticked off and frustrated and he was very nice to me (maybe that's the key to getting things done, just get a bit angry). I made sure to ask him exactly what my roommate should say, so that we knew for sure this would get done.

About five minutes after I hang up the phone with him, he calls back. He apologizes and tells me that he made a mistake and that I can actually make the changes. So we did all the stuff, and now hopefully it's all taken care of. I think he was the nicest person I talked to there. I don't care that he made a mistake, but at least he called me back to make it right. He almost made me hate MTS a little less...but then I think about all the other people I had to deal with, and no, I still hate MTS.
