This sounds like buying and selling when I was in Turkey in the 1960s they had a tax on everything bought and again when it was sold.00 Sorry about your television woes. Working with a company rep might be okay, I hate when you ask a salesperson does this product do this or that and they have no more idea than I do.

    A technician from the cable company has failed to show up for two days. I will try again tomorrow. Wish me luck.

    No matter where cable techs work to their own schedule. Best of luck.

Hi, Sasha. I saw your post the other day and have been looking so forward to reading it. You always make me laugh. I've had so much cleaning to do to get ready for Christmas that I didn't allow myself the pleasure of reading your post.
I laughed out loud at your statement that you are never turning your tv off. I sure hope that works for you. My mother tried that because she could not see the remote. The automatic shut off kept spoiling her plans though.
Tvs should not be so complicated. I can't turn one of ours on because it is wired funny.
Glad you are doing well enough to write another ramble. I do so enjoy them.

    I am having a technician coming by to set it up properly. A television should never be so complicated you cannot turn it on. I was able to turn off the automatic shut off so it does stay on constantly. Wish me luck.

reply by Debbie Pope on 19-Dec-2019
    The technician should be able to disable all the devices that the new tvs tout as wonderful. Tell him to make it like tvs used to be before they improved.:)

reply by the author on 19-Dec-2019
    I don't know when he is coming but am feeling quite anxious to have it fixed. Smart TV's are not cheap and definitely should not be that difficult to set up.

Oh dear, I am trying very hard not to grin over this one, Sasha -- as frustrating as I am sure it was for you, the way you describe it is funny and totally absurd... If I hadn't had a similar experience with the TV my brother sent me a coupe of Christmases ago... But actually, it was the indoor antennae that was more of a problem.

Well done. I hope your nap was restful . Mine was -- I only got up to answer my phone. :))

    The rest was helpful but the television is still impossible to turn on or off.

reply by Ideasaregems-Dawn on 19-Dec-2019
    Ohhhh! Not good! I hope it gets resolved!

Sasha, I love your rambles and how they help me see what goes on in your life. I'm glad you feel so free to express yourself so well here on fanstory. I love your descriptions of life in Mexico.

I think I would be annoyed too if it took weeks to get something I bought at the local store. Heck, I have been doing a lot of online shopping this holiday season and even most of that shipped quicker.

    Not here, I have purchased a few things on line and most took almost 2 months to arrive. The postal system here sucks.

"The past few days have been filled with marvelous items worthy of mentioning in a Ramble." I can hear the song, "Mama said there'd be days like this..."

"so I could vocalize my displeasure" Love it!!!

"come from a country that knows how to complain" Yes! We do!

Thank you. This made my day. Releasing a rant every now and then can be very freeing.

We all hate it when we have written something that we think was quite good only to lose it. I find when it happens to me I can remember the jest of the piece and sometimes write a better work. May you have a blessed day and a good week leading to Christmas week.

I am so glad I found this amusing and interesting "ramble" from you Sasha. I enjoy your posts so much and I think it's because you always write as if you were chatting casually with a neighbor. It is an intimate and fluid style that I find very appealing. I know I rarely give you six stars, because usually there is one tiny word or a sentence I think could be better, and this one is no exception, but I am pretty sure it is the fault of my understanding and not of your writing. Therefore, I'm pointing it out, and giving you six stars, not just for this post, but also for all the many times I read and thoroughly enjoy. Here is my questioned sentence: "I am too tired to move one with anything else." To what does the "one" refer? Did you mean, "I am too tired to move, along with everything else." ?? Maybe, after your nap, you could rewrite that sentence to be a bit more clear. Or point out to me what I'm missing. As a small aside, I admire your spunk. Most people would not continue to write when it is so difficult to see. Please don't ever stop! Hugs, MM

    No, you did not miss anything. It was a terrible sentence that needs to be fixed. Thanks for pointing that out.

I am glad that you voiced your logical complaint to the salesperson and that Augustin and Veronica enjoyed your "Ugly American impersonation". I just complained to CVS Drug Stores that one of their stores in Los Angeles does not have shopping carts at its location, and they wrote me back to thank me for the information. I don't know that means they will do anything about it! Congratulations on finally receiving your TV--I hope you enjoyed a long nap in front of it!! Smiles- Joan

    Good luck with getting your shopping carts, I don't think the salesperson was impressed with my temper tantrum.

reply by Joan E. on 15-Dec-2019
    CVS didn?t seem to think it was a big deal?maybe, I should carry my handicapped placard into the store! -Joan

reply by the author on 15-Dec-2019
    I am sure you were not the only one to complain. Maybe threatening to send the complaint to the local news station might get to take it more seriously.

reply by Joan E. on 15-Dec-2019
    Yes, bad publicity is never welcome. Sighs- Joan
