So far, it's good

I've been on the job for about a month now. Things can get pretty busy around here, and because of it, I had to find a good pace I could work at. Not only do I do web design, I do design-related support over the phone. Sometimes it's not design, but more software/account/internet-related.

One lady thought something was wrong with her web site no updating when it was really her browser loading a previously saved version of her site. She told me that telling her these things is what we get paid for...No, it's not, but it doesn't take much time to tell someone to ctrl+F5 when trying to reload their website in a browser. It is not my job to tell someone how to use the internet.

I have a rant, but I want to save it for when I can better word it (as if, lol). It will be called "The Do's/Don'ts at Network Solutions". Even though the most important stuff is described at Network Solutions already, some people either skim through it or have more questions about specifics that aren't explained on the site. As I am new here at Network Solutions I don't know much, so I'll be updating that Do/Don't list as time goes on.

Moving along

My car died. The mechanic my sister relies on actually isn't very reliable, and has ignored numerous calls from my mother to schedule a time when he can work on my car. I will always love my Eagle Talon as it was my first car. However, because of the sudden breakdown and numerous major things wrong with it, I can't put anymore money into it. Now that I'm working, I can't wait for some slack mechanic to decide if he wants to work on the Talon. It's more appealing to find another used or certified pre-owned car, and I assume that I will be searching for one this weekend. I'm holding out on that bum keeping his ass wherever he dwells during the day.
