Update on HBC complaint

So I emailed HBC online again this morning to inform them that I have yet to be contacted by the Brantford Zellars regarding my complaint. Lo and behold, at 3:05pm today who should call? FINALLY!!! So I spoke with the store manager, who seemed fairly young (about my age I would say) and he was very apologetic. This surprised me because when I had made a complaint at the Centre Mall Zellers about their crappy service I was brushed off with a "what do you want ME to do about it" attitude from their manager.

So, anyways, the store manager apologizes and said his stomach was turning as he read the email. He said he was shocked at the poor level of service that I had recieved, not only on one but several occasions, by his staff. As a token of his regret, he has offered me a few pack of Pampers for free! I thanked him for his apology and said I would gladly accept. So tomorrow afternoon he wants me to come by the store and ask for him so he can apologize face to face and give me the diapers!

I guess something really CAN come out of these types of situations! Let's hope that the service actually improves though or I can guarantee I will be back with more complaints!

Baby Update

I went to the doctor today, he didn't check my cervix but said he WILL definately be checking it next thursday at my appointment. I asked him, if I were to go past due, how long would they let me go. He said I will have a baby by the end of the month regardless. He said lots of doctors will wait 2 weeks but he doesn't believe in that. So basically at my 40 week appointment, if I am still prego that is, we will be picking a date.


Parking For New or Expectant Mothers

One of my BIGGEST pet peeves is when people park in the spots marked "Reserved for New or Expectant Mothers" (or something of that nature)!!! I really think that from about 5 months pregnant women should be given a parking "pass", much the same idea as a handicap permit, for these spots and that they should expire when the baby is about 1 or 1 1/2.

Recently, at Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre, while returning to my car (which was parked in one of 3 of these type of spots) I walked past an older couple (I'm talking late 50's to early 60's) coming out of their pickup truck they have parked in one of these spots. I had Britney with me so it took ALL of me to bite my tongue and NOT tell them off! Not only did they have no baby with them, but they seemed VERY able bodied! AND, if they were not "able bodied" then maybe they should talk to their doctor about a proper handicap permit.

I see it ALL the time at malls and various other places that provide these spots and it DRIVES ME NUTS!!!!!! People need to have their heads checked! It's not easy to waddle your ass from the very far end of the parking lot when you are a big preggo monster! And really? DO you think it's a very good idea to piss someone off who is RAGING with hormones???
