Kharma A K Word

If my circumstances reflect my actions I need to become much Kinder.  In the last two months my Canon died and required 44 emails, almost two months, two shipments and numerous calls to have warranty repair completed.  Andrew's truck motor has blown (Ford).  My printer doesn't work (Canon).  My computer (Alien-Dell) blue screened. Andrew's phone (Apple iPhone 6S Plus) has stopped working two days after unconditional return (Verizon), warranty does not cover it since there is a scratch on it and insurance has a hundred fifty copay.  I would not ask me for a recommendation on any of these brands nor on their company's customer service.  I would not be KIND.

On the brighter side of K there are Klingon, my favorite, Worf
Koi
and my Ki-Anne.

Sorry about all the "bad K's." I'm sure you've been Kind enough, sometimes life just Knocks you down, but you aren't Knocked out! :-)

Sorry they all bit the dust.
Klingon! Good choice.

Sandra said...

this is KIND of a sad K story.. there reason I say KIND of is because i love the last two livng K's... we both know that customer service is not a Kind word for sure... i am having a talk with Murphy about removing his law from your home at this Moment....

Ouch! That's a lot to have happened!! Time to join the fish for a swim and the dogs for a play, I reckon!

That's enough of the bad stuff to last you a while now...on with the good!

I know you have a lot on your plate. When it rains, it pours. It seems to be the case too often. Hang in there, my friend. Prayers and hugs. Always.

Hello, it hurts when so many things happen at the same time.
Time for some good stuff to happen. I love the koi fish and your sweet furbaby. Happy Tuesday, wishing you a good day!

*hugs*

Hope your coming days are better ones, Gail. I do love your happy K's.

You all have a blessed week. ♥

What a beautiful dog! I think there are evil vortexes (vorti?) that strike electronic gizmos every once in a while. My bugaboo is laptops. Never met one that didn't become a pain in the Keester.

Isn't it always the way things all go Kaput at the same time Grrr!

I have heard others complain about their phones going wrong just as they were out or warranty - I've often found the same with washing machines. I often wonder are they made that way?

Great photo's of the Koi and Ki-Anne

Take care my blogging friend

All the best Jan

Well I know for a fact that you are very kind, so that's not it! The sad reality is that bad things happen to good people, and it does seam to come in truck loads at times, until you just want to curl up in the corner and hide. I promise you that it will turn around again, life always does eventually. The trick is to tie a knot and hang on tight until it does. I will keep you in my prayers! You saved the sweetest K for last - she is a blessing and a wonderful reason to smile in difficult times. And, you are loved too! XOXO

Lynne said...

Enough is Enough, I would say!
I think getting Apples insurance is a farce . . .
I liked your Koi and Ki-Anne . . .
and your "K-enoughs . . ."

Farm Girl said...

Oh No!! What a month you have had!! My goodness. I like your other pictures though. :)

Country Gal said...

YIKES ! That sucks , I guess there are lemons in every thing now a days , Hope you can get it all fixed or replaced . Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

Ian H said...

You've had your run of bad luck for the year! Great picture of Ki-anne

Arkansas Patti said...

Nooooo, you must have a tax refund due. When ever I had one coming, every appliance and gadget I owned would become ill. I call it a boils and sores period. I was lucky to break even and hope you do too. At least there were a bunch of good K's also.
Worf was cool wasn't he?

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

Sounds so frustrating! But how nice that there are 'k' things to make you happy. Like Ki-anne...so cute!

Debbie said...

A streak of very bad luck. I don't know why people in customer service can't be kinder!! Ki-Anne, what a beautiful pup!!

Susan Kane said...

Oh, your house has been struck by gremlins. Or some zombie virus. I feel your pain, as I have been there. Go wading, that will make you feel better.

1st Man said...

Well I'm KEEN on having a KINDRED blog friend that I can send hugs and KISSES.

Oh, and think of cute fluffy KITTENS.

KIRK?

KHAN?

Another warranty horror story. Sorry you had to go through that. Been there.

I’m exploring different types of dreams and their meanings.

Just catching up and am so sorry to hear about your numerous "K's" . You know, behind a buncha not so great "K's", come the good "K's", so it wont be long till all is good. Yep, I like your positive "K's" too. My tulips are approx 1/2 inch outta ground....WAHOO.....spring is springing, birds are singing. I'm feeling it. lol

Ida said...

When it rains it pours! So sorry to hear it's been pouring on you recently. Love your Koi and your sweet dog.

Susan Anderson said...

Wow, you have definitely been unlucky on some of those Ks. But you are sure lucky in Ki-Anne.

=)

Karen S. said...

Ki-Anne you are a sweetie-pie! May happiness and kindness follow you everywhere you go!
