sheer frustration

I want to scream anytime I deal with corporations or offices in Ontario. Canada is NOT in one time zone, and getting a call at 5AM because they're open at 8am Ontario time makes no sense for national organization... like the utterly useless Caanda Post. promising they'll call in four hours when in their time zone they close in an hour. Not one person thinks to mention what time zone they're referring to when you talk to them, like only their time zone exists. Companies like these that dea;l with the entire country should reconsider their hours so that all the country is served. I'm sure someone in that part of the country wouldn't mind getting up a few hours later. But then again, they don't realize there is a "rest of the country", except when they want money.

I quit using Virgin mobile because they'd call me about new cell deals etc.
It got to me yelling at them and telling them to F*** Off as it's 5:20 AM.

I flipped on someone I had to deal with when I was on a disability claim. She was in Ontario, but she knew I was in Vancouver. She would call me at 5:30 am asking to do an interview! I answered the phone half asleep and said “do you realize it’s 5:30 am?” She replied “oh sorry, so can we have the interview now?” I said “No! You can call me back at a reasonable time for me and we’ll make an appointment for it.” I’m convinced that she did it on purpose because she wanted me to be sleepy and confused. But there’s also the distinct possibility that, being from Ontario, she just assumed that the entire country is exactly like there. To that province BC is like outer space.
