Can I assume that you are both teenagers?

Having been one myself I can say that it is a very confusing time for young adults. It would make me wonder if this is more to do with her than it is to do with you. So try and keep some form of communication going so she knows that you are there but it may help you to open up your options in the way of other friends so you dont feel that her behaviour can affect yours.

Keep your chin up, dont let her get you down and us this experince to help you broaden your horizons.

Can you please give an example of when you have displayed excellent customer service?

Discuss this question

Question found in Miscellaneous
Yes.
I was running our Customer information section at our store and a customer had a problem with a product that they had purchased recently, I followed these simple steps to solve the customer's problem and prevent the store and company from losing face and more importantly from losing money:
1. I took the time to listen to the customer's grievances and learn what the problem was, exactly.
2. I explained the options that I had available to me to the customer and recommended the one I thought most helpful to the customer.
3. The customer wasn't happy with the choices that i had and wanted to force me to exchange the product for one that cost more but they wasn't willing to pay the difference as they expected the store to do that as it was "its" fault.
4. I calmly pointed out that the options included, giving their money back, a like for like exchange, or a refund/credit note.
5. Although they didn't like the fact that they didn't get their way they did choose one and quietly went home.

They became regular customers after that and proceeded to tell their friends. I later found out that it it sometimes better to treat people with respect and tell things like they are rather than trying to give them what they think they want.

Take care

"Microsoft award team

20 Cravenpark, Harlesden

London NW10

united kingdom

I wanna know about their existence or they are fraud. They informed me that I was picked as a winner out of 10 by randomly selecting my email id. NOW they have asked my address for sending my price as cheque with the help of a courier service named "qdell". Is there any such type of scheme run by Microsoft promotion award team or they are fraud?

I suspect that it is a con as I'm not aware of Microsoft having an office in that part of London, I have by the by been to their head office.

If you haven't already done so, you could check their web site for any clues or ring their "PR" department.

DO NOT SEND ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION.
On this subject as well, do not send anything to anyone unless you are sure that they are legit as this is one of the many types of scams that are becoming prevalent recently.

Take care and be careful.

My nephew is 1 years old and has recently got quite a bad chest infection. On taking him to the hospital they have discovered that he has a lack of oxygen in his body. They have put him in an oxygen tank for the past 4 days, but there has been no change. Some days it appears he is getting better but others he is dramatically worse and now he has stopped eating. On the fourth day the hospital put him on a drip and gave him some antibiotics.

Is there anything more that the hospital should be doing? What is causing this? Is it life threatening? Should we transfer him to a different hospital.

Discuss this question

Question found in Health & Fitness In General
This is a complicated and an obviously emotional situation.
Babies as young as this can be prone to ailments that can become problematic at best. His young age and predisposition to handling the infection will mean that the hospital staff may have their work cut out for them. Have a chat with the staff/parents and try and find out exactly what you are all faced with. But based on what you have said so far they are doing all that maybe needed, try and give it time and let nature do its job, it will work out for the best.

If you wish to share anything else with me then please feel free to contact me direct, but my thoughts and prayers goes out to you and your family.

Kind regards

What is the diagnosis for a lack of oxygen in the body?

Discuss this question

Question found in Health & Fitness In General
There is no one answer to that question.
Its the red blood cells that carries the oxygen, so being anaemic may cause a problem, but then so can having a heart problem, or if you are being strangled, having a lung infection may also make it hard to breathe.

Having panic attacks can also make you feel breathless.

Any chance that you may respond and put this question in some form of perspective so we can answer it more fully?

Should I tell my boyfriend how many times I've been married?

Discuss this question

Question found in People & Relationships In General
It shouldn't make a jot of difference how many times that you have been married or how many boyfriends you have had, unless it bothers you in some way?
A: Do you feel that it is too many because he will think less of you?
OR B: Do you think that if you have had too many that he wont be able to trust you?

If its (A) then he maybe the one for you so find out how he feels.
If on the other hand its (B) then is he the one for you, and you are looking for ways out?

Either way you need to talk to him once you have worked out what you really want, the sooner the better.

How do you stop sweating with out buying anything?

Discuss this question

Question found in Health & Fitness In General
Sweating is a natural requirement for our body's' to function properly. Without it we would very quickly overheat which could lead, in extreme circumstances, to death. Although we can buy antiperspirants to help control the build up of the bacteria that can cause odours, there isn't a method of completely stopping this process (that I'm aware of).

Reading between the lines, do you have a sweat problem?
If you do then the following may help?

Are you sure that you definitely have that problem, smelling your own armpits every ten minutes doesn't count. Ask someone that you trust to make sure. If you do have you tried the best anti-persperents money can buy, it maybe worth asking a chemist for advice.
If you have done all this and you still feel that you have a problem then have a chat with your doctor to see if they can help.

Either way, don't let it get you down. Things always seem worse when it involves us personally but problems when shared or talked about can shrink very quickly.

How do I get my ex back?

Discuss this question

Question found in People & Relationships In General
Don't even try.................................

I suspect that they split from you? Then they wanted something that you didnt/dont have. So analyse what went wrong, from your perspective, then decide if that is something that you want to change if not then move on. Trying to be something that you are not never has a happy ending so accept who you are and live your life not someone elses.

You will be a lot more happier, although you may not believe me at first.
If you want to discuss why I think that please send me an email.

What is the most COMMOM way for mountains to form?

A)2 plates come together (this is true).

B)folding occurs during plate collisions (a more accurate prognosis).

C)two continents collide (how some of our mountains formed after the super continent split and continental drifting occurred).

D)Volcanoes erupt (I'm swaying away from this one as eruption causes most other effects to the terrain).

I am stuck between A)&B). I may be wrong with either; although I am looking for the most common way.

Discuss this question

Question found in Geography
Although (A) and (D) maybe true they are not the whole story.
And as you suspect (B) is more accurate, but to be totally accurate i would have to say (C).

Regards

Comments :
Actually the most common is "A". Subduction: An oceanic plate slides underneath a continental plate; this often creates an orogenic zone with many volcanoes and earthquakes. Orogeny is the process of mountain building. Orogenic events occur solely as a result of the processes of plate tectonics.

The actual correct answer is "A", it helped to prove that the Earth is round.

It was the only question I had wrong on my exam using C); although, I thought that C was the correct answer as well and was looking for confirmation.

It would depend on "how early" of sailors the question implies. Very early sailor still thought the Earth was flat, so both A and C would be the correct answer.
