7 Quick Takes Friday
--- 1 ---
So when Google is being sued for having a monopoly, I can't help but mention something here:
You cannot contact Google when you're locked out of your email. They say they'll contact you after investigating, but they don't. And I can't help but feel like they can get away with this because... well, they've got the monopoly. And they won't spend the money to take care of little ol' me.
And no. You can't buy back your old cell phone number. I checked.
I've been locked out for over a year and basically I'm still mourning the loss of all the history.
I'm going to dedicate two takes to this issue... because I can't help but compare the ridiculousness of Take 1 with the amazing-ness of another company:
I had the same issue: locked out with old recovery info for back-up... Guess what they did? In 24 hours, they asked me to prove my identity with documentation. I did so. They reset everything to match my new email address and BAM. 24 hour turnaround and recovery of my account.
Good work, Flickr. Even if I hate you and am only getting back in to delete everything.
Google: Shame on you. You have the resources to take care of your people. Do it.
I try not to exude "Mom" all the time. It's good for my mental sanity to distance myself and feel... like adult Mary. (Remember Bringing up Bebe? Yeah. Like that.)
But in reality, sometimes I accidentally cut my own food into kid-sized bites... and then I really want some adult time. LOL.
What's my current decoration style? Welp, my baby is crawling and pulling up on furniture. It's simply a whole house version of keep away.
