So in mid-June I tried to log into my Hotmail account. It asked me to update my security info and it wanted to send me a code. However, the only option was to call or text an office phone from the job I no longer work at. So I said I couldn’t verify my account and I received a message that in 30 days they would email me and I could update then. Irritating but understandable.
Well, I never got the second email. So I tried logging in today and the same problem occurred. Why my Hotmail knows that office phone number is bewildering to me. Now I have to wait until August 23?! Bullshit. So I tried to send an email to Microsoft support. Did you know that if you resize their message window, the submit button disappears? I spent nearly 5 minutes looking for the fucking button before I shrunk the text box down. THEN the goddamn captchas!! I tried typing in 6 different captcha texts and NONE OF THEM would take. And I was double checking the letters and the case. Finally I did the audio version and that worked. I am so done with Hotmail. I just want to change my info so it can continue to just be the box where my Amazon emails go.
And it’s not even Friday! Wah. The only bright spot about today is that my brother and sister-in-law are in from out of town and I am having lunch with them today.
