high speed Internet. What else should I have expected on Friday the Thirteenth.
The satellite Internet guys didn't show up this morning. I didn't even get a call that they weren't coming. They were supposed to be here between 8:00 and noon. So I waited until 1:00 and called to find out what was going on. They started giving me the run around and then said they would reschedule. I quickly told them that they would NOT reschedule, they would cancel my order. They did. So I proceeded to call the company back to talk to a supervisor to lodge a complaint. They had cancelled alright but didn't bother to issue a refund on my payment for the installation. It was all I could do to keep from using a LOT of foul words with this company. They knew I was angry but I kept it clean. (Although thinking back, when the guy wanted to reschedule I did tell him he could "stuff it.") Anyway the supervisor was very apologetic and issued a refund on my credit card for the installation charge and gave me a discount on my next months satellite TV bill for my inconvenience. I guess I just have to put up with dial up Internet for the rest of my life. I know what I can do!!! I can send our new president a letter and ask him to get high speed in my area. He thinks all Americans should have high speed or DSL so maybe if I got him on board I could get my phone service to put it in. Sound like a plan to you?
Yesterday was one of those eating days. I just couldn't get satisfied or full. At least I kept it healthy (except for some Cheerio's cheese snack mix). Still no exercise. Just can't make myself get off my lazy butt.
Hope you have a healthy and happy weekend.
