Adventures in Hating the Planet

Hubster and I moved the office stuff last night so I could set up the internet as soon as the installer arrived. Installation was a success and everything seemed fine. (cue foreboding music) I sent the man away. And then it happened. NO INTERNET.

The disappointment. The horror. The realization that I would let you down by being unable to blog. And I couldn't even drown my sorrows in WebSudoku. May you never experience such profound disappointment.

Anyhow, I call Customer Service, they talk me through the problem. And then the guys says they have to reset some account info BLAH BLAH NO INTERNET FOR ANOTHER 24-48 HOURS. KILL ME NOW!

I nearly wept. I called K at work and whined and complained, and he joined me because the poor man has been without internet for over three weeks at this point. Well, he's checked stuff occasionally, but he hasn't had more than 5 minutes at a time. He's had the shakes for a week.

I get off the phone with him. I work some more. Then Customer Service calls back. It's fixed! (cue angelic chorus)

And then I wrote an overly-dramatic entry about it.

I smiled! I cried. I pumped my fist in the air for your whining and complaining. I am still dumbfounded that you have internet in LESS time than the company promised you.

In that one post I suffered a rollercoaster of emotions. Time for bed.

Thanks for the kind words. I eventually decided just to start again from scratch (which is when I found out about my mistakes ... and the mistakes were known as misplaced margins). Thanks for taking the time to take a look.

I'm bored - you want to do something?

Only YOU can turn a tech support call into such a drama.
