I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Thanks Taylor!!

Chick… not dude! As in Swift… and, was she! All started w/seeing my Bell bill this morning… then seeing red! Was furious… I just spoke w/customer service not even 2 weeks ago straightening the whole mess/everything out?! Honestly, I’ve had it, was done… was calling to quit. Dude transferred me over to their cancellation department, and is where Taylor took over. She was able to do what others couldn’t, or weren’t allowed. She told me they had an across the board price increase (which I surmised), but what pissed me off, is why when given a month’s credit last time for my problems, wasn’t it for the new price, instead of the old since the increase was implemented beginning April? That’s what tipped me off, alerted me that something was amiss! Needless to say, that was the first thing done, the difference credited to my account – funny, after getting that, was still gonna quit, lol! Then, after a few minutes on hold, she came back w/a crazy-assed price, lower than my previous negotiations (which, I did receive the credit for as well). Starting today, I’ll be saving over $135 a year (on top of all the credits, so many, hard to keep track, lol)! She did warn me that price increases do occur, but also said they’re not expecting any in the foreseeable future (this year). Oh, suffice it to say, I asked for further retroactive discounts as well… and received them! NOW, I’m extremely happy… thanks again, Taylor!!

Thanks for the Swag, Steph!!

WOW!! How’s that for love? I have been a long-time loyal customer, but I really wasn’t expecting THAT, hell I wasn’t expecting anything! Two brand new logo (shape, too) premium lager glasses (which I was coveting), PLUS a voucher for an 8-pack… a $21.95 value itself! And, love the handwritten letter, such a personal touch! Thanks, Steph… and thanks folks at Creemore… best beer, and def best people behind the beer!! Cheers!!

Jarlsberg on the cheap!!

Couldn’t believe this while perusing my Highland Farms online flyer … Jarlsberg Cheese half price … $7.99/lb ($17.61/kg)!! Don’t know where you’re from and what y’all normally pay for it … $16/lb is the going rate in these parts … sometimes on sale for ten bucks if you’re lucky, and only if you know and are able to score it that is (lowest price I’ve ever seen btw), AND that’s only precut prepackaged wedges with the skin/rind on … this was available anyway you wanted it sliced (LOL, sorry for the cheesy pun … and again, ooops, lol). It’s one of my favourite go to cheeses, its flavour, texture is distinct … not overpowering, but not too mild either … love it in sandwiches, on crackers … great for any and many uses. And being a long time loyal, friendly, beloved Highland Farms customer … my cheese lady friend sliced off the throwaway bits before weighing & pricing saving me more money (scaled and priced with the rind was almost $45 – with it cut and discarded about $41 – saved $4), AND she vacuum sealed the whole deal for me (a service NOT offered I was told … looks like I AM special, lol). Oh, this was my second trip too … went first day during their one week sale and spent about $25 on smaller pieces … good thing I went back again midway through the week, CLF says they’re almost sold out, only a few wheels remaining … and she’s not sure if they’ll be restocking (or if they’ll give raincheques) before the sale ends … oh well, I got mine, lol!!

Beautiful display …


My handbasket, almost 6 lb – $41 worth (deuces are wild, lol) …
