I’m Irritated

I called my internet provider yesterday to get my service repaired and restored. I set up the appointment for today, my one day off, and spent the day sitting by the front door so I wouldn’t miss the call. I shouldn’t have bothered.  After my third call to them, the bimbo on the other end of the line told me they would have to reschedule for tomorrow.  Assholes.

I have phone internet, but that’s about as satisfying as jerking off in a cold shower.  It just doesn’t get the job done.  Hopefully, I will get a service call tomorrow because I have some good stories to tell & I need to get caught up on my reading.  Keep your fingers crossed!

    Lemme guess…Comcast? That’s about how good our service was with them, and all for the low, low price of just $200/month. Yay.

    We don’t have anything that commercial here. But $200 a month!!! I know many people hate Comcast & now I see why.

    Aw, Darc stole my line! I was going to say, you sound like many a Comcast user I’ve heard/read about.

    I’d recommend the service we’re using now but I’m pretty sure they don’t have coverage in your area yet. 😦

    Hope you get back online soon!

    I’m back, finally! We don’t have anything as commercial as Comcast. It’s a pretty good company, but I’m in the sticks and no one wants to make the trip for a 5 minute jack repair.

    Just had to laugh about your summation of dial-up, as that’s what I have–no hi-speed runs my way (except for satelitte and don’t wanna go there). I hope you get back to quickie ‘net soon, as I miss reading your blog.

    But I *did* have cable internet like 10 years ago when it first came out, so I was the cool kid on the block, but then I moved…….

    I’m out in the sticks so I have ADSL. It’s not horribly slow, but if something else is going on with the computer (virus scan, my son downloading WoW) I can take a shower in the time it takes a page to load.

    I hate dialup. It sucks that you have slow internet. Sorry I haven’t posted on your page in a while–WordPress isn’t letting me link to the blog I’m actually posting to. My WordPress blog is kind of a dummy blog right now. Eventually I’ll switch to it, I reckon…but not yet.

    What’s worse than dial-up…using the internet on a cell phone. That’s where I was for nearly a week. 😦

    I wish I could use the internet on a cell phone. I have a stupidphone. 😦 I really need a smartphone…the 21st century is waiting…

    It’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Paying the extra $30/mo for internet is a real drag.
