    I printed out the Walmart return policy in English, took it with me, and when the clerk said I needed a receipt, I showed him the policy.  End of argument. He took it back and I got a credit.

    To those who said I should keep receipts--of course I know that.  However, this was purchased a while back and I don't keep receipts for 90 days. Nonetheless, they need to honor their policy which is to take returns without a receipt.  This was a paper item in its original wrapper.

     

     I am keeping that printed out policy in my files should I ever need it again.

    Correction, I printed it out in Spanish as in was written on the site.

  3. There is no broken glass.  I hired R & R Construction for this project, so we will see how it turns out. It seems there are some cracks in the roof and the entire surface needs to be painted and he will construct some glass box types shapes to go over the glass blocks.  His first idea was to remove all the blocks and reinstall them so they are not flush with the floor/roof.  I was not in favor of that.  I have sixteen of these group and it will really make a mess in my house, plus I don't want workers looking inside my house, etc.

    This alternative solution will solve the problem without a mess on the interior 

    I will report back once completed.

    Yes I misspoke , not reading the fully message, I apologize. Perhaps working with a professional therapist would help rather than reaching out to lay people?

    Loneliness requires companionship, not psychotherapy.

    Try facebook.com/attmx -> 💬Message

    Have this information handy:
    1. Your MX phone number
    2. Your IMEI number (number printed on surface of SIM card)
    TIP: Sometimes the numbers on the SIM chip are too tiny to read, just use your smartphone camera to magnify the numbers!

    If you can't write Spanish, use Google Translate as necessary to chat to them in Spanish

    I figured out a problem this way. My AT&T stopped working because I ran out of data allowance, but data started working again once the billing month rolled over.  For your situation, it might theoretically be possible there is a monthly limit on number of roaming minutes / roaming texts while physically outside of Mexico. But I have not confirmed that part.

    I could refill extra data via "8. Recargas" on the AT&T Mexico Chat Robot at Facebook.

    As I had my phone with me, they had he number and access to the SIM card.  I had someone go to the shop in Ajijic and add data.  That did not help.

    Zeb, I DON’T consider your review as VERY negative and highly doubt you’ve damaged Arturo’s reputation just on your say so.  I know at least 4 local plumbers named Arturo.  It’s all good.  Glad you got your problem sorted.  

    Thank you for that.  It was not even a review or an opinion.  It was just a description of what happened and how he handled it.  He was in fact a now show and did handle the phone call exactly as I stated.  I was very polite with him and hugely disappointed at the time considering all the comments about him on the board.  Actually, I don't think I will delete anything because it is what happened and I did take the time to then continue to explain how it turned out.  Workers do screw up and this one one time when he did.  I still think a phone to say he could not come or an apology later would have been polite.

  7. I had not called him back when I posted that and, at that time, had no intention of doing so.  Some time passed before I decided to call him again.

     

    Also, I am not sure I know how to delete a post.  I remember, I used to be able to make corrections, but I think that feature is no longer available.  The negative part that I wrote was factual.

    Frankly, I don't understand the reported behavior.  I've never seen it in 15 years.  He has never failed us.   But then we love him and feed him every time we've needed his services!

    To report the end of the story, through a series of events with other plumbers, I called him again and he did come by and fix the problem correctly and was reliable, so I think it's just one of those times when people just screw up and it is not there normal way of being.

    I've been using Arturo for over 15 years.  Never disappointed, always on time and usually early.  In my opinion, the only plumber Lakeside after going through a half dozen so called "plomeros".

    Never been a no show.  Wonder if he might not be put off by pushy, rude Gringos?

    Of course, anyone would be put off regardless of nationality. 

  10. I am making this request for a friend.  She is looking for an inexpensive Casita or home centrally located as she will have no car.  She is currently in another part of Mexico.  She is coming back to the area to live here. She has no pets.  Budget around 10,000 pesos.  If anyone has any leads, please PM me.

  11. I know for sure that I have returned things there previously with no receipt.  I think sometimes they just don't want to be bothered.  Clerks usually are unprofessional.  Once I had purchased a plastic container in Soriana.  When I got home, I realized a part of it was damaged.  I went there the very next day with receipt and was told they did not take back plastic containers.  The return policy was printed right there at the desk and plastic was not under the non=returnable items.  She said "oh, well that falls under a totally different category that we don't take back".  That was all a lie.  A few days later, I had someone else go there and return it with no problem.

    It’s near the back entrance of Hotel Danza del Sol on Ocampo before Calle Rio Bravo if heading west on Ocampo. Look for the number 185A as there’s no business sign.  Also note it’s right beside Laura’s Nail salon (they have a sign) which is on the corner of Ocampo and Privada Ocampo.  Closed Monday, open Tuesday to Saturday.  

    Thanks.
