Annoying Occurrence 1
As a result of a lawsuit in 2006, the government did an audit of all H&R Block customers for the past X number of years. Including mine from 2002 which was found to be wrong. Then it took more than a year for them to find me, what with me having repeatedly moved, changing my name through marriage, and then moving once again to Europe. So now I also owe late fees & penalties. It's not a lot of money, although I am extremely annoyed they are charging me 11% interest for the last year when I knew nothing about it, but it's the principle. H&R Block will be receiving a Very Strongly Worded Letter! Mostly because attempting to call them did me no good whatsoever. 'Cause they SUCK!
Annoying Occurrence 2
For my birthday trip this year (in May) I decided I wanted to go to Las Vegas to see Bette Midler's new show which just opened at the beginning of the year. At the time we booked the non-refundable flight & hotel (at the same time as a US business trip GLH needs to take anyway), Bette was scheduled to perform that weekend. But you could not buy tickets until 3 months before the performance. We just checked to see if the tickets were on sale yet and found out that all of her shows for the month of May have been cancelled. So now I am trying to decide which lackluster show I wish to see for my birthday in a city I would never have selected except for the fact I love Bette Midler. Perhaps I should also send a Very Strongly Worded Letter to Bette?
At least I get to go to Cairo tomorrow!
