Review: Metal Tornado

Metal_Tornado_CoverSo… Metal Tornado.

I’m looking at this movie, and I’m thinking… LOU DIAMOND PHILLIPS! HELL YEAH!

No. Just… No. The whole movie is… Well, it’s a lot like Bigfoot. With Bigfoot, I thought… OMG! It’s Danny Bonaduce and Barry Williams! The Partridge Family and the Brady Bunch! OMG! This is going to be pure awesome!!

No. It was awful. It was so awful I highly recommend you don’t even bother with Bigfoot… Unless you want to be driven to self-harm.

I recommend that you only bother Metal Tornado if the idea of an electromagnetic tornado appeals to you at all and be warned that this lives right up to the awesome standards set by lowest-budget SyFy movies. Dear god.

Sharknado 2, this is not.

Foamy… Help Desk… Experience

So… I can’t log into my company’s benefits website. It’s kinda tricky because my husband works for the same company and he’s the one who holds the insurance.

Me: I can’t log into the benefits website. I’ve always logged in as an employee. It won’t let me in now. Not as an employee, not as a spouse of an employee. It won’t let me register either, because it says I’ve already registered.

 

Tech Support: Do you mean the benefits website or this other website?

 

Me: I mean the benefits website.

 

Tech Support: You have an account. Are you trying to log in as a spouse?

Me: I’ve tried to log in in all the ways. I’m an employee and I’m a spouse of an employee. I’ve tried them all.

 

Tech Support: Can you show us screenshots.

 

Me: This is what happens when I try to log in as an employee. This is what happens when I try to log in as a spouse. This is what happens when I try to recover my username. This is what happens when I try to recover my password.

 

Tech Support: Have you tried to recover your password?

 

Me: This is what happens when I try to recover my password, after I’ve tried to recover my username.

 

Tech Support: Have you tried to recover your username?

 

Me: Yes.

 

Tech Support: Have you tried to register as a spouse?

This is where I spell out exactly what I said in the first email… again… And I’m not happy. I’m so not happy. I manage a website with thousands of customers around the world. I manage a website and I support it. I support it and I expect the people who support sites I pay for with my hard earned money (i.e. my insurance premiums) to have half a fucking clue. Is that really SO MUCH to ask?
