Heroes

big ones and small ones

short ones and tall ones

heroes come in all

shapes and sizes

we call them heroes

for many different reasons

i remember

sitting by the side of the road

watching a parade go by

honoring those

who served our country

so proud and brave

remembering the heroes

who did not return

respect was always paid

as the crowd

went silent

flags waving

then people cheering

bands and cheerleaders all in step

little did we know

way back then

that some would grow up to be

heroes

in so many different ways

some would go off to wars

in foreign countries

some would serve here

at home

never knowing

from one day to the next

when they would be called upon

to perform

a heroic duty

we see heroes every day of our lives

not everyone gets a parade

but that does not make them

any less appreciated

Welcome Home

Good and Faithful Heroes

and

Thank You

AT&T Is the Bane of My Existence

If you hear about a Southern woman going off on AT&T, that might be me.

No joke!

AT&T is driving me nuts.

Twice in one week, I put in an order to add a feature to my phone service. Twice in one week, AT&T managed to lose the order. Needless to say, I’m not getting the added feature.

Calling AT&T is a huge lesson in futility.

Man’s automated voice: “Welcome to AT&T. Is this the number you are calling about?”

Me: “Yes!”

Man’s voice: “How can we help you today?”

Me: “Representative.”

Man’s voice: “I did not understand you. Please state your reason for calling so I can transfer you to the right department.” (Something like that and trust me he’s lying.)

Me: “Representative. Representative. Representative.”

Man’s voice: “Hold on while I transfer you to someone who can help you.” (He’s lying, again.)

Me: “It’s about damn time!”

Then, a voice comes on the line and it’s barely audible. After stating my reason for calling, I’m told that I’ve reached the wrong department and need to be transferred.

Me: “Each time I call AT&T, I get transferred 3-4 times and I’m sick of it.”

Representative: “Please hold.”

AT&T sucks!
