I’m TOTALLY disgusted with ANY Cell Phone Company.  But after dealing with AT&T….IT IS THE VERY WORST OF ALL!

Next Month our contract is up.  I’M GOING TO VERIZON!

#1: “V” now has HUGE Coverage…just makes AT&T look ANEMIC!

ALL the people in Kettle Falls (our “move to area) have switched…..BUSINESSES now with “V”.  MORE TOWERS, COVERAGE!  USA AND CANADA!


#2: nearly 1 2/3ed yrs ago my AT&T Cell was broken.  (We have 2…or, HAD).  THEY REFUSED TO SEND TO OUR HOME ADDRESS (replacement).  We have ONLY a P.O. Box.  “WE DO NOT SEND TO Post Office Boxes” ONLY to your STREET Mail Box”.  WE DON’T HAVE ONE IN OUR RURAL AREA!

So, I said “Ok, send it to my friend…(giving their Mail Street address).

“SORRY…must be YOUR OWN!”

Asked “what can I do then?”


Oh, SURE…at nearly $200.00!

So, been PAYING FOR SERVICE ON 2 PHONES SINCE!  With only ONE to use!

EXTRA CHARGES FOR TWO…and they will NOT “renew” our contract!

Well, friends, I had the option of BUYING OUT of that….but would cost us ALMOST $200.00 TO GET RID OF ‘EM!

Well, in November our contract is UP!

Now “SCREW ‘EM!”  They’ve lost US as “faithful customers”!


I’d sure LOVE to get that “extra service” paid back.  Don’t think THAT WILL BE!  EVER!

Well, AT&T…..YOU CAN GET LOST!!!!!



If any would…….PLEASE PASS THIS SENDING ON!   (Pray about it first tho).  Thanks.  Red Elk and Meachelle


Red Elk asked me to post another comment:

What I’ve found to be disgusting is that people are starting to pick up slang from off of the internet… incorporating them with common English. It’s really hard sometimes to have a conversation with people my age that doesn’t include movies, games, television, you name it… If you talk anything about nature, living in the wilderness, etc they resemble a deer looking in a cars headlights. So far I’ve found none that’d like to venture out to the northeastern part of WA from the west (Redmond Area). Planing on leaving my comfort zone after this winter and slowly working my way on foot and bike while camping/eating along the way in the national forests to Cle Elum, and to Coltville hopefully. Much love!

And to leave his answer exactly as he spelled it. ;)  – WS

Good LUCK!   re

I would like you to know, it does Not make me feel good to “chew out”…nor to turn down those seeking advice.  It literally “turns my stomach”.

Over the years I’ve received THOUSANDS of Emails and Letters from folks “wanting”.

There are so MANY “out there”, Seeking.

When they stumble across one who understands and cares…and is open about it…they “jump right in”.

Try as I might, they keep “returning” again and AGAIN.

Suddenly I’m a GOOD FRIEND…and a “Pen Pal”.

Rarely giving in return.  My job is terribly “underpaid”….to say the least.

I am not writing this to “ask” or “hint”.  I am writing so you can understand the reasoning of WHY I do as I do (“jump” / Turn Downs / Etc.).

It is very upsetting to have constant “What about This / That” returns….people WANTING, but it seems not wanting enough to seek their answers from our Creator.  As often as I tell…”GO TO HIM and ask”, they totally ignore this telling.  Always seeking a SHORT CUT : ME!

Its one thing to deal / handle 4 or 5…or even 10.  Quite another to “do” with TENS OF THOUSANDS!

WS can verify SOME of the FLOOD of Emails I’ve received.  So too can my Post Master!  (Ever take home your daily mail in a NAVY SEA BAG!?!)

Frankly, I’m surprised I’m still Alive!  ANSWER EVERY SINGLE ONE!

Tho not all received the return.

MAIL HAS CONSTANTLY COME UP “Missing”!  Still does, too.

Believe me, I get some irate people from this.  (By the way, the POSTAL POLICE…a FEDERAL POLICE FORCE few know exists…has caught one of the thieves.  Now heading to “5 to 10” (YEARS in a Federal Prison)  THIS IS AN AUTOMATIC SENTENCE.  No “Buts” or “I’m sorries”…BAM! Off to judge and prison.

Over the years, I’ve “lost” ALOT of mail !  OUTgoing AND Incoming.

Friends, I CAN NOT “HANDLE” being a constant “Pen Pal”.

(In snail mail, most NEVER EVEN SEND A STAMP to return their answer(s)!)

The worse is those few EXCHANGE GIVERS who DO  give Some $$s / Etc  then expect  THAT   “Pays” for ALL help thereafter.  (‘Til the day I die,  I guess).

“GO to HIM,” I tell.     MOST DO NOT!

Well, maybe this will explain why I’ve been forced to do as I do.

Tell me, would YOU do DIFFERENTLY?

If so, “methinks you’re talking out of your” skivvies”!



That’s what I’m trying to Teach,   ANYWAY!

HE IS THERE FOR YOU, Just as HE’S there for ME!

DON’T try to take a “short cut”….I AM NOT HIM! Aho?

(Anymore, all I wanna do is crawl in a hole and SLEEP).   re

(Yes, yes I can vouch!  The first time I went down to help there were THREE LAWN BAGS COMPLETELY FULL of letters.  It took 3-4 FULL weekends to get it down to ONE bag, AND do the hundreds of emails!  He dictated, I typed.  Oh, there were a few that weren’t answered – because the person sending them forgot to include their name and address in some fashion.  No way TO answer!  — WS)
