I am having one of those days where it's just like: "No. THIS is the way it's gonna be. And you're going to get my opinion on the subject whether you like it or not." :p

I blame this on having to call Telus after they sent me YET ANOTHER e-bill for the phone number I transferred to Virgin in AUGUST.

Apparently I missed their stupid billing cycle dates, so even though the e-bill says I owe them, the actual paper bill and in their system was a zero balance. I requested (firmly. not sure about the polite part. >.> ) that they send me a paper statement.

Then I ran around the intarnets offering unsolicited opinions. Which people are of course free to ignore.

Maybe I need coffee. Mmm... Coffee. or maybe I'm just gearing up for potential Stupid Human Tricks when I go out to buy dog food (PetSmart), bubble envelopes (Staples), and ... something, with a 40% Off coupon (Michaels).

Writing my year-end review probably has something to do with it, too. :p

Oh, btw? Snow. Last night. Still on the ground.

Dude, parts of the UK have had snow, too! It's crazy, because some of these places haven't seen snow at this time of year since the 1930s!

So Telus is a bummer. Rogers is a bummer. Are any phone companies not bummers? (See, all banks are bummers too, but at one point Scotiabank got bright and made it easy and advantageous for you to do business with them. I keep expecting this kind of intelligence to show up somewhere else and corner its own share of the market. But the guys who run billing are never down with this mindset.)

What it is to live where 'the good air never gets' (= downtown). Snow dusting vanished mid-morning from the rooftops and was never on the ground that I can see.

At the moment I would say Virgin is reasonable, but we haven't been with them that long. And pay-as-you-go is always less hassle than anything involving a contract and billing cycle.

Scotiabank is the one bank I have personal issues with, but that largely stems from the way they frequently fucked up handling my student loans, back in the day before the government took them over in the consolidated National Student Loan Centre. (Aside: need to keep an eye in the interest rate. Prime plus 2 floating may bite me shortely.)

We've had good luck with TD, mostly due to their web banking, and one awesome small business CSR in Kingston.

Up here in the far north, it's only just finally melted. :p
