So, in spite of how depressed I feel, I started making a list of to-do's and things to improve on/look forward to in the New Year. At the top of the list of course is coming home for Christmas next year, and finding out where our next "tour" around the states will be. (Notice I said states..NOT Germany!)
The picture up top is of my little pumpkins that thankfully will never cease to amaze me on how much love I have for them. (and vice-versa) It was taken right before a PTO Christmas party I went to last weekend. On the bright side, at least I have my husband to annoy/talk to all the time until a new "friend" comes along...sorry babe=-)
We will think of everyone this holiday season, and keep those Christmas cards coming!

4:30p.m. came and went, and no one showed up. I called and asked where my order was..she puts me on hold **by the way, they have a "central line" so even though you call the store number, it is like a call center** and when she comes back, she tells me "I'm sorry they don't have a driver, can you come to the store?" Of course, I am a little miffed to say the least, because Josh was still taking a nap, by this point the girls are whining for food (yes, I know we eat early), and David was sleeping for work that night. Anyway, I said "no, why didn't anyone call me within this hour and a half, and let me know this?" So then she puts me on hold again, and comes back to say "we can give you $5.00 off if you come and get it, I asked her if it was ready and she said yes." O.K. now I am royally Peed off because for one, they made it, and decided to just ignore me and figure I would forget or what?!?!?!?
So, I simply stated" That is unacceptable and I want my order free!" She said of course they couldn't do that, and would have someone call me back from the store.
By this point it is almost 5p.m. and I had to make something for my girls to eat, since obviously my previous plan had been demolished. A "local chick" called me back as was very "annoyed" to say the least she says," Brandi, yes you called, and have a problem with something?" I proceeded to tell her what happened and even added the whole my order should be free, and she claims, of course not, and then says"We just pulled a driver off the road, I don't want to be here, I can give you ten dollars off, take it or leave it!"
I told her I was disappointed but I guess, so the driver was supposedly putting the order in his car as we speak....no joke 5:35p.m. he shows up with THE most nastiest old pizza ever, and 5 bread sticks that were folded in half, and a 2 ltr. of Pepsi. I asked him how he was doing and he says" I'm good since two drivers called in sick and I am the only one!"
So who do you think is telling the truth..him or the manager?
The more I think about this, the more upset I get..I wasn't treated like a customer, but not even as a paying individual. Who should/would pay for something that is so old, and been sitting under a vent for a good 2 hours?? Then to say my $14.00 was too much to give back, that 10 bucks was the best they could do?? I have worked in the food industry long enough that your paying customers are a great asset, you want them to come back, to tell their friends about your place of business TO come back, and seriously $14.00 isn't worth that?
I hope this doesn't happen to any of you, but if it does, DO something about it before it happens to someone else, so by word of mouth/Internet I am spreading the word PIZZA HUT S~U~C~K~S at customer service!

Avery's bag was starting to get heavy but she was not going to let anyone help her carry it...
I was trying to stop her in mid grab, as the candy giver was obviously too slow at giving her candy.....
Hailey and Josh went with Daddy to the "Generals loop" area of the post to get "better" candy...

But with all of this going on, my #1 SON decides to make Mommy and Daddy's week by being Spotlight Student! I am soo excited because he gets to do "special" activities throughout the week in his class, and on Thursday, he gets to eat lunch up on stage with Mommy and/or Daddy plus gets to choose his favorite cheer to say in front of the rest of the kindergartners. (The idea is to be in front of the spotlight.)
Anyway, this week was crazy to begin with, AND it is Hailey's birthday on Thursday, so we are fortunate enough to celebrate two special occasions with two very special pumpkins=-)

This is what Hailey was last year..she keeps "debating" about this costume or her "race car" one...I guess we will see on Halloween!
Here is Joshy, always full of smiles..he is a dinosaur/lizard/amphibian of some sort?!?!?!(The costume was not specific when purchased!)
The girls are "Dumbo's"..if the costumes look familiar it is because Hailey and Josh were these little guys when they were one..the girls are two and the costumes still fit!!!
I will get better pictures on Halloween, but in case you wanted a sneak peek what will be happening over here on the big blue Island of paradise...now you know!~happy halloween everyone!
