And of course I finally had a call from someone at the local home improvement store after sending that email to their corporate office. DUH right, like the next day!
The home improvement store has even offered to credit my account for the four months of craziness I've had to go through.
Maybe because they had to see what I've been going through. When the fence people where supposed to come out and fix the fence on a date they stipulated and even confirmed through the home improvement store...
Guess what ...
They cancelled. Ha no kidding, see what I've been going through home improvement store peeps!
So the manager was not happy and was immediately on the phone with them.
They were out the next day, as well as the home improvement store install manager and I can tell you, NOT HAPPY with them.
I guess we'll see how much longer they are a vendor of the home improvement store.
The guy that came out to fix the fence, couldn't believe he was the 4th from the company to visit my property to fix their mistakes!
I'm like dude, seriously, you are!
So DONE, END, COMPLETE!
On a side note -- Sorry I haven't been posting or been online in more than a month. I've had a lot going on with my day job.
I traveled the first part of September and the last part, and the first part of October.
Oiiii, It was all good though!! Took a major class and exam call the the HCCP (Housing Credit Certified Professional). It's a national certification for LIHTC (Low Income Housing Tax Credit).
Then we had our yearly managers meeting. It was awesome!!
Now my team and I are bating down the hatches as we have auditors coming out this week and at the end of November we have Compliance audits.
We came together in February 2016 to pull this community out of trouble, and while there's still some rough waters, we have shown since then what we can do and how we've met the goals set for 2016.
(Everyone from owners to Managing company CEO's are VERY happy with our progress!)
So, The fence installer who was supposed to 'fix' my fence 'finally', "CANCELLED"
Yeppers, you read that right..."CANCELLED"
If you've read parts 1 and 2, you know I've been going through this since June 28, 2016.
This time the excuse was...
'Ah well you know, we have to look for lines so we don't bother any lines and the guy who does that can't do it today and you know because of where it is with the sidewalk and ah, you know with the hurricane coming in, we can ah do it next week."
Fact 1. My fence is no where near any lines.
Fact 2. My fence is no where near any sidewalks.
Fact 3. It was two days before the hurricane came in.
I'm like Ahhh, No.
I have to be in Orlando for a week long meeting next week.
The guy...' Ah, ok, I can pencil you in tentatively for 10.17.16.'
EXCUSE ME!! TENTATIVELY?? WTF??
I'm like, what ever man, yo do know you've made me miss another day of being in the office right? For crying out loud!!
So I sent The Home Improvement Store who hired them, an email today.
This 4 month long ordeal, I'm DONE with!
Done, stick a fork in me done! Ding, ding, ding.(That's the buzzer going off)
I also let the know that while I've kept their name out of it so far, I have no problem with posting the dumb shit they have put me through for these past 4 months between them and their installer.
Because of Facts --
Fact 1. They had a crew who didn't know what the hell they were doing. Fact 2. They had the 'same' crew come out and 'fix' most of the original issues.
Fact. 3 Someone either with the home improvement store or the installer 'changed' the actual footage of where my fence was supposed to end.
Fact 3. When another 'man' came out to fix the mistakes from crew 1, he refused to move the fence to where it should be unless I or the home improvement store paid for it.
next meeting flashing 7 Days ... hours ... minutes.
Sigh. Really...pull up my calendar. Yep next week.
I have no idea why I thought it was this week? All calendars point at next week. (I've done this before) I even had my nails done for our mermaid theme. lol. So for two weeks I've been thinking it's on the 17th.
I'm like ok, whatever, I scoot over to my grandmother's and she's like, you're early. I look at her calendar. YEP...next Saturday. LOL.
So my Ma and I spent the day together.
It all works out!!
So just so I'm sure ... the next Sunshine State Romance Authors chapter meeting is on Saturday September 24, 2016 at the Homosassa Library in Homosassa, Florida. (In case anyone wold like to attend. 10 AM our general meeting and then our workshop.
