I am Very upset with the way I was treated at R. Greenleaf in Albuquerque! I was sold a domeless ceramic nail that I was assured would work with my setup. When I got home I was to small so I returned to the dispensary & you can imagine my disappointment when I was told by the staff & R. Greenleaf when I was told they wouldn’t exchange it for something that would work for me & that sense it has not been used I should try to sell it on the street to someone! Now I’m out the money & cannot use my medicine. I am completely baffled by the way this was handled by them & the ridiculous solution they had for me. Never again will I return to R. Greenleaf.

::ALERT:: So I go to assist a patient in possible conflict resolution with R. Greenleaf and I find another HUGE issue over the already stupidity they found themselves in…. Not only did they flat refuse to refund a patient for an unused product that was “guaranteed to work.” It didn’t and the patient made another huge trek to get something to work and was refused return or exchange (according to the patient). 100% satisfaction guarantee huh? Anyway on to the more insane issue that effects everyone that uses their website…. So they are selling ads on their website now. A website for patients ONLY. So to make money from those ads, you have to usually submit to an “inventory” of IP addresses and “soft data” to verify that a person visited so they can get paid for the traffic. This is a very good case for a HIPAA Violations… Someone with some more tech savvy sense in this matter should look in to this matter with a quickness. If they are disclosing our IP or any data is “unauthorized disclosure of personal identifiable information.

Brainy quotes on Squirrels

“A squirrel is just a rat with a cuter outfit!”  Sarah Jessica Parker

“I’m not squeamish at all. As a child I dragged a dead squirrel home on my skateboard and cut it open and tried to look at its brain.”  Jessica Biel

“My dad liked to boil a squirrel head and suck the brains out the nose. Smaller than a chicken, bigger than a rat.”  Beth Ditto

“The squirrel that you kill in jest, dies in earnest.”  Henry David Thoreau

“I squirrel away sealed greeting cards that people give me so I can open them later when I’m having a bad day.”  Emily Procter

F*ck

For every time I’ve had to close down everything I’m doing so I could download the latest update.  For every time I’ve lost my connection and had to reboot.  For every time I’ve had to reset my “wireless network adapter” today (I stopped counting at 50, seriously).  For every time I’ve had to refresh a page because my “like” didn’t register.  And for every time I get the error message that a webpage is not available.  I hereby release all my fuck yous… at least until the next update.
