    Having all kinds of problems with new VOIP phone system... dropped calls, intercom doesn't work, voice mail won't retrieve etc etc. My general manager turned a certain shade of purple and she* was ready to break someone's face. Hours talking to tech support, comcast et al. I upgraded my internet to 75mg but as it turns out, the dude** who installed the firewall only dedicated 5mg to the phone system!!! No freaking wonder it didn't work properly!! Who are these people???

    ** My granddaughter and her friends call each other dude sometimes so I guess that's gender neutral.

    I'm already taking the maximum allowable dosage by law.....

    https://www.viibryd.com/ ® (vilazodone HCI) is a prescription medicine indicated for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD) in adults.


    another rant, my co-pay has tripled in the last couple of years- tier 2 to tier 4, they should make it free because people like me shouldn't be let out of their cage without it.

    Samsung changed charging port type on their Galaxy phones. I tried to save a buck by using the one I already have to charge my new phone in my truck, so I bought an adapter from Amazon. The connector is so short I have to take the entire case off in order to get it to connect. It takes me longer to get the case on and off than it does to charge the phone!! It's worthless. Of course, they only come in packages of 3, another $30 down the terlet.
