I'm starting to get the impression that customer service is slipping somewhat at my Nissan dealership. The last time I brought the urban assault vehicle in for maintenance, I had to wait 45 minutes for the shuttle, which is understandable, they get pretty busy and can't always plan ahead. But then the work that needed to be done, which I was originally told was under warranty, turned out not to be, so I had to pay for it, and I've overheard a few other customers complaining about some work that wasn't done to their satisfaction.
But what really drove the coffin nail in was the phone call I made there this morning to ask about the replacement radio for which I had been waiting two weeks. Parts dude told me it had arrived a week ago.
When were they planning to tell me?
And I never did get an apology from the service advisor for the additional week of suffering (although he did wash my car).
But now I am all excited about picking out just the right cds to take with me on my commute to work tomorrow. I can't decide what to bring. The new Sigur Ros for sure, maybe a couple of mixes, a little Belle and Sebastian is always good. And I haven't listened to OK Computer for a long time. This is better than Christmas.
Any suggestions for my foray back into musically assisted commuting?
The Calgary Folk Festival have announced the Saturday and Sunday workshops and there are some wonderful combinations of musicians that I am getting increasingly excited about seeing. The Mainstage and Twilight stage shows look really great as well, but it's the workshops that always win my heart. There are some stellar and inspired match-ups on both days.
Tomorrow after work I will pickup my volunteer shirt and badge and get a sneak peak at my work schedule. And then I will need to start doing my homework, familiarizing myself with all this year's musicians, so that I can be the best damned record tent volunteer in the history of record tent volunteers.
What can I say? It's a calling.
