Random Acts of Shifeness - I Love AT&T

  • After more than a year, I have finally resolved my billing dispute with AT&T.
    Self-high five.
    I am being conservative with my estimate but I have spent at least 30,000 hours on the phone with them since last September. OK, maybe 30 or so hours. Here's the link if you want to read about me first complaining about their customer service. It's time to celebrate... 
  • The Shifley family got our flu shots last weekend and Kyle and Hayden were less than pleased with the experience. They have been fine with the shots in the past but this year was a big deal. Kyle even decided to leave his stuffed animal in the car because he didn't want Pinkie Pie to see "the horror." The kids made a lot of faces like the girl below and if you want a good laugh, click on the picture and watch her freak out getting her a flu shot.
  • When they weren't busy threatening to sing Justin Bieber songs if they got a flu shot, Kyle and Hayden actually had fun at their first race. They both had to run a half-mile at their future high school. 

  • We went back to Cabela's on Frizzle's anniversary just to see if the people we bought her from were around. We almost came home with another puppy. I said almost. Good thing I hadn't started drinking yet.

  • My GIF to you: 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend, and I will talk to you soon.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream. 


  1. Joys of dog ownership. The Engineer had to get
    up at the crack of dawn to collect a first morning
    urine sample from Tar...

  2. Yeah, I'm not looking forward to seeing my kids with their flu shots either. It's worth it though.

  3. Puppies are hard to resist, even when sober.

  4. Good for them for running 1/2 mile! I didn't run when I was little and can't now!

  5. Looks like everything is ok in your neck of woods

  6. I just had my flu jab and didn't feel a thing. Maybe the older you are the less it hurts. Her experience made a great video. Hope you all have a great weekend.

  7. That gif cracked me up, did that crab go straight for the guy's balls or was that my imagination?

    The look on that girl's face having a flu jab would be enough to put anyone off having one.

  8. I had a client who was having a billing dispute with AT&T a couple years ago. It was fairly minor, but it sucked up a huge amount of my time and I hate them. I am convinced that their computers aren't actually connected, so they can't see what's been done by any other employee on individual accounts.

  9. i feel kyle's pain. funny how some flu shots hurt like crazy and others don't.

    is it the vaccine or the person injecting it?

  10. I wish I could run a half a mile! I don't think I could do that when I was a kid, even, too uncoordinated, all awkward . . .

    Good for all of you getting your flu shots. I feel bad for kids who hate needles. My daughter was one of those. My husband is another, bu he's not a kid :)

    Good job on resisting the puppies.
