Wednesdays are great for Wordless and Wordful posts, but we decided to go a different route and create our own Wednesday fun. We figured what the hell. That’s how we started What The Hell Wednesday. Who are we kidding? That’s pretty much how we decide on almost everything. If you want to play along, grab our button on the sidebar, link up to us in your post and don’t forget to sign in to the linky below. Really, what the hell?
We knew we would need to buy new tires for my SUV this year. We had been hoping to make it through the summer and buy some in the fall. But our drive to Florida and the flat tire we got at the end of our trip only a couple miles from home made getting new tires a bit more urgent.
My husband shopped around, getting quotes from a lot of different tire stores, and looking online to get reviews of tires. Finally, he decided on Firestone. They were meeting our lowest quote and we would get a $70 rebate to boot. Seemed like a pretty good deal especially since buying 4 tires for the SUV a week after a vacation was a little tough.
Yesterday I got home from work and my husband wasn’t happy. Okay, more unhappy than usual. He said “I got an email from Firestone and they denied my $70 rebate. The reason? I didn’t send in the original receipt. Which is a joke since I did send in the original receipt.” What The Hell Firestone??!!
So, now we don’t have the original receipt because we sent it in as required and now we only have a copy, plus in their email it states “Do not respond to this email” and they don’t supply a phone number because they don’t want to hear from anyone. What The Hell Firestone??!!!
Monday night we were with some friends and they mentioned they were looking for new tires and my husband said what a good deal he got with Firestone. You can bet that I texted them right away to take back our recommendation. I did sent out a few Tweets to @FirestoneAuto last night but so far I haven’t gotten a response.
Friday evening I went into the kitchen and noticed there was a fly in the window. I walked over to kill it and realized there were about 20 house flies in the window. What the hell?? It was very Amittyville Horrorish! They were in two windows, thank goodness thing 2 had that electric bug zapper because I fried those bastards! Apparently they must have hatched somewhere outside because they were also in a neighbors window. Luckily they’ve all died or been electrocuted now.
It’s mid July now. Did you know that? That means summer is almost over. What the hell? I haven’t even done anything yet!
The other night I took my sleeping pill, ambien, which normally knocks me out but that night I was up until 2am. What the hell?? If that stops working what is the next step….house tranquilizers?? I kinda blame M. Night Shamalan though, since I did start watching Signs at 11….
