Someone raided our BC shop and stole a huge load of wire! If you see anyone with wire that is about 4 inches wide... Please call the police! Since it is so big, it will not be able to be recycled by the thief because the recyclers will know it was stolen! If times are that tough.. Talking to us about getting a job would have worked out better for you because you must be strong, and a hard worker because what you took must have taken some muscles... However you completely wasted your time since you won't be able to sell what you stole!!!!
We use the money that we get from recycling to pay for our staff Christmas Party, staff Camping Trip, staff Golf Tourney, staff Ski Trip ... Staff Breakfasts and Staff BBQ's.
Please call 250.425.5464 or the police if you know anything about this crime!
Bring back the wire and stop stealing!
Dear Google Translate,
I just wanted to say Thank YOU to the genius that created this option! I was recently in Peru and met some new friends; the only way that I could communicate was to pass a phone with Google Translate on between us. It was really cute and funny but it allowed me the opportunity to talk. Pointing only got us so far but thanks to this option, I was able to express my thoughts and feelings. I know that everything that I said did not translate 100% correctly but I was at least able to be a part of wonderful conversations and have created lifelong friendships with my Spanish speaking friends. The only thing that held me back was not being able to type as fast as my thoughts.
Once again thank you for helping me truly enjoy my Peruvian experience by giving me a voice when I had no words to express my thoughts & feelings.
Keep up the great work. This amazing piece of technology has the ability to bring Peace to where there was no communication before.
Thank YOU so very much.
Querido Google Translate,
Sólo quería darte las gracias al genio que creó esta opción! Hace poco estuve en Perú y se reunió con algunos nuevos amigos, la única manera que podía comunicarse era pasar un teléfono con Google Translate entre nosotros. Fue muy lindo y divertido, pero me dio la oportunidad de hablar. Señalando sólo nos dieron hasta ahora, pero gracias a esta opción, tuve la oportunidad de expresar mis pensamientos y sentimientos. Sé que todo lo que he dicho no tradujo correctamente al 100% pero al menos pudo ser parte de las conversaciones maravillosas y han creado amistades de por vida con mis amigos de habla hispana. Lo único que me detuvo fue no poder escribir tan rápido como mis pensamientos.
Una vez más, gracias por ayudarme a disfrutar realmente de mi experiencia peruana por darme una voz cuando no tenía palabras para expresar mis pensamientos y sentimientos.
Sigan con el buen trabajo. Esta impresionante pieza de tecnología tiene la capacidad de traer la paz a donde no había comunicación antes.
Gracias tan mucho.
Thank You to Luis at the Hostell International for all of his help and support for our school that stayed with them for a couple days this month. The are located at a great spot in Miraflores, close to shopping and the beach. Luis needs a raise because he is very helpful and accomiating.
Wonderful breakfast and great staff... Will stay here again.
Fernie Alpine Resort Well Done!
I have been collaborating with resort to book in our company Ski trip at an affordable rate for our staff and their families. This is the second year hosting a ski trip, but this year I have found out a bunch more about what the Ski Hill is up to in support of the Elk Valley and area. Just wanted to say a Big Thank YOU to all those helping to make this trip possible and share more about what they are up too… including FREE pancake breakfast with coffee & hot chocolate plus tons of awesome prizes to win all morning! Jeff Hutcheson from Canada AM will be filming from 4 - 7am on Jan 24th.
On all groups and especially local groups they are always open to discussion about how they can make this work for you!
Not sure if you are aware of the many programs they do that many other mountains do not. First they are the only ski resort operator to provide all Grade 2 kids complimentary skiing for entire ski season. They also offer a Grade 4/5 program and they are only major resort in the Rockies that does not block out holidays so kids can ski for free on this program with their families. Also they have the lowest price local School program in the Rockies with $25 Lesson/Lift/Rental.
Also they are the only resort that has a major Community Fund (besides Whistler) that has provided over $250,000 in cash (for Cranbrook, Fernie. Sparwood, Elkford and Kimberley) called the Community Summit Fund.
As they offer countless hours by their team to host Mountain Safety workshops in the community and they are the largest cash supporter (ski resort) of the Canadian Avalanche Foundation.
They invest countless millions back in business with new Polar Peak lift, new grooming cats, Zip line, Marketing and many other on-going enhancements.
They are the largest supporter of Tourism Fernie and continue at all levels to drive significant tourism into the region.
They also bring massive awareness to community and region by bringing in 4 major movie productions, Globe & Mail, Toronto Star & over 1000 media outlets coverage each season including the exciting Live Canada AM show this week!
See you on the Mountain.
Thank you so much for the amazing staff who came with a quick fix to change banquet rooms when we needed to change rooms at the last minute. Everyone rallied to create a solution. I would book there again!
Facebook has changed the way that it automatically shares the posts that are shared by page administrators within their own Pages. Since every member of facebook pages have "Chosen" to become a member, the messages that are posted within the page should be showing up on members news feeds until they themselves decide to un-join the page.
Currently, Facebook is requiring page owners to pay for their own members to view posts. I do possibly understand having businesses paying for this feature, however what about the hundreds of thousands of page owners who are simply there to inspire or post for non-profits etc.
Peace in OUR Lifetime is one of these organizations, very frustrated with the these features. Prior to the changes, this page was receiving about 200 new members a day. It was growing by leaps and bounds, now about 4% of the members see posts.
For the last 7 months my Peace Partner & Founder of Peace in OUR Lifetime, Lynne Hazelden, has been trying with no results to get Facebook to take a look at the posting issues as well as the timeline lack of members interactivity within our page. There are only 1500 impressions on a +26,500 page when a few years ago when we had 10,000 fans (vs likes) we got 5 - 6,000 impressions per post. Now the post impressions seem to be getting lower and lower even though our membership remains at over +26,500 members. Our Peace Day event goes out on the official UN broadcast plus over 1000 websites in support of all of our peace partners. We have Invested years into this and now it is like we have no reach at all. Please help and share this message so something can change.

Please give us our reach back.... let non-business organizations reach the page members who "choose" to be members of their pages.

My Daughter received a $50.00 gift card as a present. In her excitement, she scratched off the gift code on the back of the card, so I had no idea what the missing numbers and letters were. I contacted the ITunes Store Support team. Very quickly, Mike from Customer Support came to my rescue! Not only did He filled in the missing information for me so that I was able to activate the card , he sent step by step instructions and links on how to do so. Then as a shining example of true customer service, he followed up 3 times with personal messages to make sure that the process went smoothly and successfully!
Thanks to Mike and his outstanding customer service, we are listening to some great music!!! I wish everywhere could would follow i-Tunes example of the true value of customer service, and how it really creates 'Life-Long,' Happy Customers!
My Computer was running very slow and my emails were getting lost in Cyber Space!
Jesse came over and de-bugged my computer and not only got it running alot faster but also taught me alot along the way! Jesse was great at explaining everything and even showed me a great program to use to edit pictures! Thank YOU Isosceles for sending Jesse over to help me out!
I was informed about a slanderous blog post about myself on a social site called the Experience Project. I commented to the author of the post that her claims of being my close personal friend were not only completely untrue but also so was everything else in her post. After further research I saw that she had done the same thing to some other people that I know.
This person had taken other peoples pictures and then not only claimed to be the photographer but then slandered the person in the picture. So after seeing the other brutally incorrect representation of the others she had variably abused, I sent the site host an email. It was crystal clear that this person was using the "webrity" status of her victims to gain readers.
Experiance Project Support Team!
Within 4 hours of posting my complaint about what this women was doing on their website I received a response from the company saying that they did not tolerate slander and that the woman's account was being deleted. So on behalf of all of the woman that she misrepresented, I would like to send the Experience Project a Cheer for not only the speed in their response but also for their respect and understanding. Thank YOU!
I flew to Vancouver from Cranbrook. The Check in processes was smooth and simple, with no body scan as well as the Airport staff being happy and friendly. Once on the plane the Flight Attendant let me sit anywhere on the plane!
The Flight Attendants
Both ways on my trip the Attendants shared newspapers, treats, beverages and candies. My luggage arrived in the same condition as I packed it and the plane was clean. I will be back for more flights Soon ... thank YOU Pacific Coastal for knowing that 'Customer Service' is a core business fundamental and not a department.
Facebook has removed the fan page for an application that I built. The location was http://www.facebook.com/PowerThoughts and it was a very active page with 10,000 monthly active page members and over 1 million applications sent.
Description of Application: Louise L. Hay Power Thoughts
Daily Affirmations... every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation. So why not choose to use only positive affirmations to create a new way of thinking, acting, and feeling? This is a great way to build a more rewarding life...."I know you can do it!"
1,127,387 applications have been sent so far .... so people really do like the application , however it was the fan page that was the most important because of the outstanding conversations that were created with thousands of active users.
Members should at least have the opportunity to decide if the page was relevant or not. It had very high result in multiple reviews.

I booked an appointment for 9:00am this past Sat. I got an e-mail a week and a half earlier that they received the booking. But they never showed and I got no call or e-mail. I tried calling them but the phone goes to a Google phone # and voice mail. Left a message and no call back. Sent e-mail and no response. So i spent a beautiful Saturday morning just waiting for these guys to show up....they never did. Based on that, I can only suggest that you avoid Gleen and don't give folks so irresponsible your credit card info. A big fat ZERO. Don't waste your time.
No one....they never called back after I left a voice mail and never returned my e-mail.
They were supposed to wash my car....now they can wash and wax my car and my wife's car and apologize for wasting my time.
I rented a car for a week from Avon. I got a flat tire on the last day of a commercial shoot i was on, and called in to see if they had road side assistance. The guy I spoke with said no, so after a 12 hour shoot in Downtown LA, I pulled over into a parking lot and changed the tire with the spare. The next day I took the car in to return it. The guy at the counter said "Sir I can't close this out because the manager is going to have to look at the damage and then they will be able to close it out" I said, "I got a flat tire". He said "I know but this is our policy". Something already felt fishy about how their "Policy" was shaping up to be. I turned the car in on the 16th of February. I called the 17th to get clarity on the situation and the person who talked with me said they would take my phone number and name and would have someone call me immediately. I didn't get any calls for a week. I called back and was told that someone is calling me. I finally called again yesterday (the 25th) and finally got a lady on the phone who told me to hold on for a few minutes. She then said the manager had decided that the tire had been damaged by me, and that I must have hit a curb and that I would have to replace the tire and pay for an alignment if necessary. The total came to $250+. I told the lady that i never hit a curb or anything and that I would like to see the tire asap. She said the tire had been destroyed, but she would send me some photos of the tire. I told her I am not going to pay for a flat tire and that she should be thankful that i'm not taking action against them for giving me a car with a faulty tire.
a few people, next time i'm taking names
They can not come at me with this BS charge.

FED EX HAS HAD MORE THAN AMBLE TIME TO DELIVER A PACKAGE. ORDER WENT OUT ON 2/11/14, TODAY IS 2/23/14. THEY WERE IN TOWN ON FRIDAY 2/23/14, BUT ATTEMPTED TO DELIVER PACKAGE AT WRONG LOCATION ( SO THEY SAY) YESTERDAY ANOTHER FED EX TRUCK WAS SPOTTED IN TOWN, AFTER I PULLED THEM OVER TO SEE IF MY PACKAGE WAS ON TRUCK, HE SAID NO, ITS ON ANOTHER TRUCK IN TOWN. I WAITED ALL DAY, STILL NO DELIVERY. I JUST SPOKE TO A FED EX REP ON PHONE. HE SAID HE DID NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY, BUT THE NEXT DELIVERY DAY WOULD BE TUESDAY! I AM SOOO "FED UP " W "FED EX"
DELIVER MY PACKAGE ASAP, I NEEDED IT FOR THIS WEEKEND, THUS THE REASON I ORDERED IT 2 WEEKS AGO TO MAKE CERTAIN I WOULD HAVE IT IN PLENTY OF TIME !
On February 12 I ordered a tote bag or my niece on this site for her birthday. As I was already paying for shipping, I decided to order several smaller items also. I received a confirmation of my order and yet when it arrived on 2/18, all the items were in the package except the tote bag which was the original reason for my order. On the packing slip it says "discontinued". If they had told me that when I placed the original order, I would have cancelled it as the same tote bag was available on another site. I even find it more incomprehensible that the items is still appearing on their site as "In Stock"
sent emails to customer service with no response.
I bought a pc at best buy after about 30 days the battery completely died ( couldn't be recharged). i took computer in an their response was, sorry we only have 15 day return or replace policy. best we can do is send in your computer to mfgr and they can replace battery, but youll be without a computer for 2 weeks LOL. AWFUL customer experience. Ive probably spent ~2k a year at best buy over last 7-8 years and this is how a loyal customer gets treated. I now go out of my way when i have electronic and appliance needs to shop elsewhere AND i make sure to let others know what a terrible experience i had. Congrats best buy smart business, you saved a few bucks by not standing behind the defective computer you sold me and youve lost a lifetime customers and added a consumer who will be sure to tell others not to shop at best buy.
Replace my battery without my having to send my computer in and without my being without a computer for week(s).
Really, 1 hour and 41 minute wait ?! Clearly you need a larger or another office in Manhattan!
Have a larger or another office with more agents.
I am currently with Virgin Mobile Canada on a month-to-moth rolling contract, paying approximately $60.month + tax for the last two years.
I recently bought a new, unlocked Moto X and need a nano SIM in order for it to work with my existing Virgin Mobile phone plan. The salesperson at the Eaton Centre store advised me that this would cost $5 + tax.
Why should I pay Virgin Mobile and additional $5 for a SIM card? I already pay more than enough for basic services. What's more, the original SIM I got when i brought my old, unlocked, phone to Virgin was free - why then am I paying for the exact same SIM chip on a smaller form-factor?
I will be investigating whether Rogers and Telus charge customers for SIM cards and will seriously consider cancelling my Virgin Mobile contract.

A free SIM/refund for the $5.65 I will have to pay instore
Massive fail. Expecting package of new prescription glasses from Coastal. Received notification from USPS that a notice was left at my door last night, 1/27. No notice left anywhere. So could not reschedule delivery. Spent one hour on hold with USPS and rep told me to pick up package at post office. Waited in line at post office at 7610 Beverly, REALLY rude postal person told me that it was NOT there and to just wait around for it to maybe be redelivered. No way to track where my package is now. Tons of wasted time and 0 result, 0 customer service.
Rude woman at post office
Get my package to my front door or get me a real ETA.
knbc did a lousy reporting job tonight. They warned about the flu and necessity of getting shots. Then showed a photo of a couple that didn't, ostensibly one or both died. They didn't say which!
I'm going through a California Covered insurance nightmare for my son. I'm having to change his plan in the 12 hour and get an application in today, so he can hopefully have insurance on the 1st of Feb. In the application process they have asked for a SS# which he doesn't have yet. I went online to see if there is an online SS option. CHKCARDEASY-FILE.ORG comes up as an option under "Social Security Card - online SSN Application Assistance" I know just the title should have been a red flag. I went through and each page I filled out seemed legit. Finally when they direct you to a pay page they have normal delivery (for $38) and an "instant Processing" for an extra $8. So I figured great. Instant SS# here we go. I paid and what I ended up with was a completed one page application for a SS#, that I have to take to the SS office.
I haven't been able to get thru to anyone yet.
refund my money.
this is the 3rd samsung 3 that has turned out defective. i went to this store and they ordered a refurbished phone that took a week. when i went to pick this one up, they took almost an hour to activate and program it. I am again having the same problems with defective samsung II phone. They said that they are turning out defective due to software issue. I am a VERY disatified Sprint customer
I dont want another samsung II. I want a different phone.
To see all the negative comments on Facebook, and Twitter and gri.pe too, does my heart good. Let me tell you my little story...my white Samsung Galaxy S4 that I paid $549 has now taken it upon itself to take whatever phone calls it wants...in other words, sometimes they come in, other times they don't.
So, I miss a call for a job offer on Dec 22...and I go to my visual vmail and see the call, I apologize to the lady and we talk about the job. But now I am paranoid and I am telling ppl to call me to see if my phone is working. I out of 5 calls come in. So, I call MPCS Cust Serv and proceed to get the worst CS Agt in their region, and explain the problem...the hang up on me when I ask to speak to the supervisor. Have to call back, must have been her cousin, hang up. And after about 5 agents and having to explain the same thing to 5 agents, which takes about 15-20 mins each time (do the math, 5 agts time 20 mins is 1 hour and 20 mins) I am told to take out the battery and SIM card and wait 30 mins and then call back. I do that have to call another agent, explain all of that again to them, she tells me to do the batt & SIM card thing and I ask her "Maria, do you not have my acct up?" She answers "Yes" and I say, "well can you READ what I have done ALREADY!?" she then places me on hold and surprise!! The call is lost!!! So guess what? I had to call back another 2 times, before I got a supervisor (are you still doing the math 20 times 3 agents =60 mins plus the supervisor...that is not counting hold time for calls to be answered and the transfer to supv hold time) and he tells me that all he can do is open a trouble ticket and that the engineers will fix the line which takes 5 business days & someone would text me. At that pt., I had given up and told him to do it.
So today, I find it strange that I have gotten no calls especially from the job lady, and I have no missed calls from her. No texts from the engineers abt my line being fixed. So I call my ph and its strange, my phone now takes like around 8 secs from a LAN line before my phone starts ringing on the LAN line phone itself. It rings…I go through my phone to Visual Vmail and there it is a vmail on Thurs, Jan 2 from the job offer lady. It’s Sat Jan 4. So I call and now I am livid. Get Roy, and after a hang up. Get Eddie, and after story avhang up. Get Zara, finally get to a supervisor named Jose Opr #8735, I am on the phone with him for about an hour and he tell me that I have to take out the SIM Card, wait 2 HOURS, replace everything then call them back. REALLY!? REALLY!? I already did that and it was to no avail. He then tells me it was 30mins and I answer cause that is what I was told. He told me I should have waited 2 Hrs and I ask then what? He says we reset the phone, and I said that has been done and I ask what if that doesn’t work. We open ANOTHER TICKET! WHAT!????? And let me guess, I asked…I have to wait 5 business days. And he said YES!!! That is ridiculous and I asked what about after, then if it doesn’t work, you have to go to the store and the techs there will reset the phone…by let my guess, taking out the SIM Card, battery, etc. When I started complaining….He hangs up.
So I am now, redoing the reset and I am on hour 1 of 2. I am incensed because I PAID my bill just today!! I just got this phone this past Sept 2013 and it is having problems ALL READY!? This is all since the update! I cannot be scared that I am missing calls and call people all day and ask them to call me back to check if it is accepting calls. I pay $65 a month, and worry if I am getting calls or not. I paid $549 for that phone, as well. Metro PCS is ridiculous when it comes to customer service. I thought with the whole T-Mobile thing, the service and customer service would have gotten better. I would NEVER recommend this company to anyone. This whole situation is ridiculous and I may have even lost a job offer.
UPDATE 01/07/2014: STILL no resolution spoke to a man 2 days ago that said that corporate would contact me the next day and here I am with NO phone and no one has contacted me AT ALL. I private messaged THAT man and have not heard back from him either. Customer Service at MetroPCS is awful! Proof positive! All the proof you need...Since Dec 23 and with intermittent service...Beware! Keep in mind I only had the phone for 3 months!
Several different customer service agents @ 1-888-8metro-8
I would like my month comped, a new phone (not refurbished) since it is phone that is less than 3 months old, same make and model. The phone is accepting phone calls when it wants, which means I do not know when I am missing calls ever. So a new one is the only solution and I cannot be without my phone while they fix it.
Cannot get anyone to talk to my about my partial order received. I am ordering for my grandchildren for Christmas and when I call the recording say our system is down and we cannot take your call at this time. Then if I ever do get through there is over an hour wait and twice while trying to get my issue resolved the agent disconnects. Then I have to start all over again. This is the worst company I have ever dealt with and the worst customer service ever. Plus they never tell you something is out of stock when you order it they just notify you when some of the order comes in and then tell you it is on "back order". Well a lot of good that does you when your order gets here 5 days before Christmas and you have ordered it 4 weeks before.
so many I cannot count. But none helpful.
too late. cannot get it here by Christmas now.
I contracted with college planning masters to guide my son , Mike Hager, through the college application process. I paid over $2500 to help him navigate colleges of interest, financial aid applications, estimated family contribution ,scholarships,etc.. Today, I was told that I needed to pay $59/mo to go forward and that all of the above would evolve in the months up to his graduation! So the $2500 that I paid only covered his meetings with the college counselors that showed him Naviance which he has at his high school, editing of his college essay. All applications were done by us. I find this absolutely outrageous . The contract is very misleading. If you read the first paragraph, none of that has been delivered.
