Miss Grumps #PetPhotoFails

Meows from Mudpie!

Thank you for joining us for this month's edition of the Pet Photo Fails Blog Hop! Is it just me or has this month been really long? Seems like the summer months always are, at least to us. (But Christmas is 6 months from today...just sayin'!)


For the past several days Mommy has been tearing her hair out trying to switch her parents' landline phone to a new carrier after their monthly bill jumped from $28 to $54! That seemed like such a waste of money since 98% of their calls are robocalls, so she went to our local big box store and bought a home phone base station through a cell carrier that they could plug their phone into.

BIG MISTAKE! After 3 hours on the phone with customer support talking to people in overseas call centers she couldn't even understand, the box was deemed defective. She ordered a second one online which arrived on Tuesday, called to activate it, and was given some song and dance that it hadn't been scanned properly in the warehouse so it couldn't be activated and she would need to get yet another! 

Let's just say Mount Mommy erupted, told the company exactly what she thought of them, and went out and bought her parents a simple flip phone they could port their home number to through a different carrier! (I bet not many people can say they've had 3 phone carriers in less than 2 weeks!)





Anyways...onto more important things, like ME! All the photo fails you see here today were taken while I was trying to snap some selfies. With so many grumpy looks on my face you would think I was the one trying to deal with people on the phone!

Those are my bloopers...let's see yours!

Yikes! Sorry to hear about the phone troubles!
That would make mum upset too. Good thing your mum was able to find a good solution.
Sometimes the selfie thing is good, sometimes not.
In spite of it all, you still look good Mudpie!!
Purrs, Julie

Say girlfriend, dad says he wants to steal the "Miss Grumps" thing, like he doesn't have enough... creative names for me. Mom and dad hate when that kind of thing happens. Mom loses her sh*t rapidly with things like that, but dad, ever the Libra, stays coolheaded just a bit longer before he blows.

Mudpie, even your “fails” are cute, but I’m sure you already knew that. - I’m sorry Mommy had so much trouble switching phone companies. Glad she found an alternative for your grandparents. These big companies love to raise prices on us without offering anything more. When you’re on a fixed income, it adds up.

Today is the day Mom has to call AT&T to try to lower our cable bill. We know what a pain dealing with companies like that can be.

We think your photos are adorable!!

Sorry, Mudpie...these are barely fails...look at how beautiful your fur colors are captured!
We don't understand why phone service has gotten to be such a pain in the neck; I think it's across the board.

I like your grumpy look, Mudpie! I'm sorry your mommy had so many problems with the phone companies. Seems like customer service has gone down the tubes.

Sandee said...

Yikes on that phone fiasco. I would have unloaded too.

There are no fails where Mudpie is concerned. I love all these shots.

Have a purrfect day and weekend, Mudpie. My best to your mom. ♥

Mount Mommy, hehe. When I called to cancel our landline this year (that we never use), they actually offered to lower our bill (it's combined with internet) if we kept it. Very odd, but okay! Mudpie, you and Dexter could be grumps together. Cute grumps, of course.

Brian said...

That phone thing would sure make me grumpy too, but you're totally cute sweet Mudpie!

Technology is great when (WHEN!!!) it works. Otherwise it's a pain in the ar$$!

Mudpie you always look great in ANY photo!

Maybe you were channeling your human's phone carrier experience with those grumpy looks, Mudpie.

WoW! Phone troubles! We send your human patience and soothing thoughts. Your photos would not be fails at our place. Our Mom is a horrible photographer!

Even your fails are gorgeous!
I hate it when you want to talk to someone and they are in a faraway call centre and you can't understand a word they are saying. I am glad Mount Mommy got it sorted in the end.

The Menagerie Mom said...

We don't see any photo fails here. We just see a gorgeous tortie named Mudpie!
