Got back my 122 dollars plus tax on return item.

As soon as I got up from snoozing,  I went to the Associate Canadian Tire store in Bathurst.  There,  I waited in line a good 20 minutes,  until I pulled my receipt out from my pocket to give it to the return teller.  There,  she indicated that I would have to bring in the two garage door openers,  in order to get the refund.  Now, just imagine.  What if I had installed those garage door openers.  Not much I could have done,  but I would have been out more money.  I asked to talk to the manager,  in case she was pulling a bluff.  She was not bluffing, and that the manager requested for me to bring in the packaged door openers.  After a look of frustration,  and a realization that maybe receipts could be forged,  I went back to get my boxes.

I then returned,  this time with no line ups.  I had to actually get credited the money on my debit card.  Then, I was ready to go and buy another two garage door openers over in the aisle.

I found this experience,  somewhat inefficient.  For myself,  having to go back and get the boxes.  I think a receipt would have done the job,  with a money refund on the card.  Now, when looking at their receipts, they show allot of information about the transaction ( with a special red ink on the back).  I do not know if it could be easily copied. Do they have to do this to everyone? But,  yet,  they are going to even make me go get two new boxes,  and then make one of their workers restock what I had returned. Then do a final transaction at the cash,  to buy the new set of openers.

As the world turns...  Is it spinning backwards?  Or am I just still nauseated from working night shifts?  Till then..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"


Part 4 is free and available but in limited quantities!

Part 4 is free for now, and available in limited quanties ( 50 downloads per day),  500 per month...

At least I think I set it up that way... Here is the link to Bookfunnel.

I tried Goodreads Giveaway, but you had to be a member of KDP publishing on Amazon. Frustrating, but there is always another way to skin a cat.

I waited a long time for Goodreads to offer ebook giveaways to everybody, but that only included KDP authors from Amazon.

So, I had to take it to this route. And to give my book to many, to get the word out. Something an author has a hard time to do, to sink the flagship battleship!!! 

Oh well, hope there are some positives out of this... I hope... Download it for free, if you can get it in time before the downloads run out!

Have a supermarket kind of day...
