Everything was going fairly well Monday; that is, until I returned from work to find the cable was not working.No T.V. and no Internet access.The T.V. I could live without, but the Internet was a different story.
My first thought was that we had forgotten to pay the bill. My wife was sure that we had, but without Internet we could not go online to our bank account to see if the check had posted.
I was going to have to drive down to the cable company first thing Tuesday morning and get it taken care of. So, J.P. and I are off bright and early Tuesday......too early as it turned out. We arrived at the Comcast office fifteen minutes before they opened.I wasn't about to stand there out front with a two year old in tow. We were back into the van, heading for the public library.I could, at least, check my email on a library computer.
Back to Comcast.The lady in the office tells me that we are not behind with the bill so she'll send out a repair tech to fix the problem.
That was Tuesday 9:30 AM. The cable guy finally arrived at the apartment at 10:30 AM Wednesday.
No Internet for a day and a half. ARRGHHHH !!!!! The humanity !!!!!!!
The cable guy says that there was evidence of tampering. Someone in my apartment building trying to steal cable.
There are some who would get angry at those who steal cable while they themselves must pay for it. I don't mind so much that this person was getting something for nothing. But, it does bother me that he knocked out my Internet in the process.
Hangin's too good for 'em.
