As much as I appreciate all that computers do for us and as much as I enjoy much of what I do here, just let me say that I almost reached my snapping point this morning. I have been ALL morning on the phone with Verizon with various problems--not just one, but several. Off and on I've already had issues with both computers and last night, just before going to bed, I realized we had no internet connection. So I went to bed, got up this morning to the same thing, and it's taken the whole morning to get it resolved. Then in my frustration while on the phone with the first technician (who I'm not sure knew what she was doing) I ended up breaking our phone jack when she told me to unplug the cord for modem from the jack. There's more to the story, but I won't bore you with all the gory details.
Well, the repairman has come and gone, we now have a jack and are back online, after a second long session with yet another technician (who did know what he was doing, thankfully). I'll talk to you folks another time when I'm not so frustrated. Whew. Just needed to vent a minute.
They're wonderful when they work, but when they don't--well, what can I say. Maybe in a little bit I'll have my composure back enough to work more on the income taxes (doing them online) and some pressing business issues (needing to be done online).
Why should I complain? I know so many people with problems far worse than mine. Hope your day is going well.
