Every now and then, I have to put some personal stuff on here! And I'm patting myself on the back because I'm finally caught up with the crazy train. In some ways it seems like it's not fair to the ones that I missed on the days that I was supposed to promote them - but I did a bit of tweeting of all the people I missed - so their promotion days sort of got extended. Hopefully, I will now be able to stay caught up - at least for a while!
Now - as to the title - I use the bus to get around, I don't own a car, so I'm very dependant on the bus system. I apply to the tansit dept every year for a special id that allows me to ride the bus for a lower rate - I got my new id the beginning of May this year - they are supposed to be good for 1 year right. Well, the other day I just happened to realize that my id had an expiration date of May 2009 on it! oops.
So, I called the transit dept - which actually gets switched to a city answering system with some of the most polite people I've ever encountered - the young man took the message and forwarded it to the appropriate person. Within 2 hours I got a call from a very nice lady with the transit dept who said she would print out a new id for me with the corrected date on it and mail it out to me tomorrow! Which is just what I asked for. I really didn't want to have to make a special trip downtown to get a new id - it's a 45 minute ride one way - and I don't really have any other reason to go there - so I was really happy that she said she would mail it to me!
So, you never know, you may just get what you ask for - if you ask!
