A few of you may remember all the problems I had with my TV cable in April and May. After several house calls they finally ran a cable across my floor from the computer to the TV. As I was leaving the house to buy a rug to cover it up I tripped in the cable and crashed onto the tile floor so I could be nice and bruised for my trip to Massachusetts. Two days before I left I got a box by Fed Ex from my cable company (Time Warner) and I set it aside because I didn't want to even THINK of what they were sending me to install next. Finally, about an hour before I left the house, I opened the box so I could tell my son all about the new equipment HE was going to have to come over and install once we got back home. It was a box of cookieS!!!! They were apologizing for the continuous problems I had.
Last Saturday was my granddaughter's birthday party. We spent the entire afternoon outdoors and I was a hot, sticky mess by the time I got home. I poured myself a big glass of iced tea and sat down to watch the news and. . .nothing happened. The cable box wasn't picking up the signal. I called support, who told me that the box wasn't working (I just got it last month). So yesterday I disconnected the box and took it in to them and asked for a new box. I brought it home, hooked it up, and. . .nothing happened. Now something ELSE is wrong. I just called my son, who told me yesterday he'd be by today in case I couldn't hook it back up (What??? I'm a pro by now) and said he can't come by until Thursday, which is the day the cable guy will be making his monthly visit. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
I realize that in the vast scheme of things this is absolutely nothing. And I'm really hoping that in a year or so I can look back and laugh. However, today I've just about had it. I'm having minor surgery tomorrow and will not be able to leave the house for a few days, so I can look forward to watching old movies, I guess. Or I can watch TV in my hot, stuffy bedroom upstairs.
Thanks for letting me vent.
