Internet Withdrawal

17 Feb

So I woke up this morning to find that my internet was down.

And remember, dear readers, I not only blog from home, I work from home!

Turns out the rainstorm last night shorted out my phone line.

And guess what? The lovely isp said that they didn’t have a tech available until Sunday!

I then proceeded to rock back and forth in a fetal position for half an hour.

Finally, I regained my sanity, and called them back:

Me: Listen, I work from home. I need the internet. If I don’t have it I’m basically screwed.

Operator: Ok. Please hold.

Me: *holding* *getting withdrawal pangs*

Operator: Yeah, we can maybe try to squeeze you in maybe tomorrow. We’ll call you and let you know.

Me: Screw you.

*two hours later*

Operator: please hold

Me: *shake* *shudder*

Operator: Yes ma’am (she called me ma’am! I’m not 60!) I’m sorry but we can’t make any promises. We’re fully booked.

Me: Screw you.

I decided to say screw it – I’m gonna go to a new ISP! I hate these guys anyway.

I call the potential new ISP:

Me: Hi – I work from home, my old ISP has screwed me over, so if you can get a technician here to install in the next 24 hours, I’m yours, and I’ll take the rest of the business with me.

Operator: Please hold.

Me: *shakes*

Saleswoman: *sucking up to me* *kissing my ass* I can’t promise you one today, but I’ll work my ass off to get you one tomorrow.

Me: Deal. *shaking. thinking why the heck can’t I be reading ew.com or something while I’m talking to these people? Oh, right, I have no internet. shudder*

Saleswoman: *continues to kiss my ass*

So yeah – MAYBE tomorrow I’ll get it fixed if miss saleslady manages to make some magic happen. If not, I very well may be AFK for a while.

Well, actually no. The upside of no internet at home? I intermittently get to go to cafes and order ice cream so I can leech off of their connection (sort of like I’m doing right now). It’s not good for the size of my ass, but it keeps the withdrawal pangs at bay.

MO is AFK

*shake*

*shudder*

*eats another bite of vanilla*
