Wouldn't ya know my liver has been fine and the ONLY pill I am taking now is for my BP which really shot up earlier today when I learned AT&T has stood me up for the 4th time this week. It was for work I was going to pay for; line ran upstairs to boost signal strength and speed for the game stations, smart TV, and one of the computers. In the middle of it all...the electric company came out before these last two appointments to cut branches on the neighbors trees that were interfering with electrical lines. Not my trees mind you...but wouldn't ya know it would be MY mailbox and MY electrical pole that they would hit? So that crashed my PS 3 (PS 4 still in box waiting for AT&T to run that d*mn line) and made the signal go down even more. So I called them before these last 2 stood up appts. to let them know...trying to postpone their appt. in order to allow the electric company to fix the pole but they said no...they could do this with all that going on and made the 4th appt. for today.
Now when I call to confirm...it will say that no one was here to allow them on premises this morning (said that yesterday too). Morning? No one here?!? So both days I called to speak with someone LIVE. They say noooo...we see it is for this afternoon (both days...writing names and times down) but sorry no one could make it out :l And earlier when I called ...I get solutions like "Take the modem/router upstairs with you when you want to update stuff there...then bring it back down with you when you go onto the computer there". OMG! They aren't stupid...they are maliciously cruel and jacking me around! Another call the lady was in agreement and soooo nice stating I should try to unplug the phone and see if it boosts signal or speed since it was on the u-verse and not an actual land line. I did get 5% more but it was this 4th stood up appointment that Peed me off sooo bad...I staid on the phone trying to reach the correct department with Verizon to port over my number and at least be done with that part of AT&T! It's also cheaper ($20 a month) and didn't realize it was like a magic jack!! Shoot...I have no dropped calls, static, etc. like I sometimes do with AT&T. They worked on our 2cd line for the past 3 yrs with no crazy fluctuation in fees nor did they require service of equipment and no inept service!!!
I do understand the "Network" doctors (except for Dr. in Batesville) are few and FAR away lol so I had to reschedule my first appt. with them on a day where I could have someone drive me (some days
|New Orleans, La.|
|Piazza San Marco; Venice, Italy|
Actually...that any and all basic services I may need are in walking or cab distance in case...God forbid please...any of this happens again :(((( Nor will I hear "They can get online in prison...maybe you need to ask THEM how to do it" :/
Guess we have to buy new mailbox and mandevilla vine this weekend. Glad I didn't paint the mailbox this spring yet :l I'm sooo ready for Honduras again next month! And maybe another plane trip over Belize Cayes ;)
*UPDATE: Jim brought to my attention a flyer was left on the door with the time of 1:00 on it. Ok. I'm wrong on this one...a little bit. Must have been a new tech because for over 3 years the steady tech already knew to call when he pulled in the driveway. This house is not only large, but has solid doors making it difficult to hear. The intercom and camera for doors won't be hooked up until the internet is stable. I also noticed that I was so stressed about it all...I was nauseous and liver was swelling (something to mention to doc next visit).
But with that said...when I went to repay Wells Fargo the extra money they had given me about a week ago (knew this was going to be an issue...yet banker laughed saying '1st time I heard that'). I requested something in writing stating it was their fault and assumed their computers weren't tied in to that branch at the time. They agreed but not to the letter. A large bank WILL NOT admit fault :P But the banker did say he was having issues with his internet at home and had only 1 more year with them. I laughed and said "You have AT&T and can't game!" He was surprised and asked how did I know that. Omg...I just let him know the new U-Verse doesn't enable UPnP! They are still wrong for the other 3 missed appts. What else was I to assume other than they struck out again?!? (Omg! Thanks for the photo!! I LOVE it!!! :D)
