ARRRRRGH!

Seriously!! Our new service was up for a week before it went down on FRIDAY and in which wrecked state it remains. Brent has been his calm, patient self while trying to work through the problem with various High School dropout Customer Service Techs. to no avail. Yesterday I could not take it any longer (tirade triggered by a 1.5 hour session at the public library with 3 little, bored, loud kids while I returned work emails and sent an overdue report to my "side" job!) but I called yesterday even warned the UNhelpful individual on the other end that I had red hair as an indication of the escalating seriousness of the issue. No change. Don't quit checking my blog or sending me email just because we've reverted to the dark ages at home. I hope, hope, hope to be back in the swing of things very soon. (And now, back to work...Pretty naughty to waste time doing this, huh?! I won't go to lunch to make up for it.)

I've wondered where you've been! ;) Glad it's just a sick internet connection and not sickness in your family.

Really. This is no joking matter. We've twice gone a couple weeks without internet here in Peru, and it ain't fun. Here's my list of things I absolutely need every day: toilet paper, internet, ... I can't think of anything else.

too funny. Sad how we come to rely on technology, isn't it. Ours was down for an evening and I actually talked to my husband. And then he went to bed early and I stayed up - reading Edgar Sawtell.

Very funny. You sound like the customers that call us to complain that their TV isn't working. :) BTW, who do you have your internet through? Remind me NOT to go with them!

Isn't it crazy how dependent we've become on certain technologies that were virtually non-existent a relatively short time ago? Yeah, I'd be going nuts, too!
