Waiting For Go… The Phone Company

Camellia

At some unknown time between 8AM and 7PM someone was suppose to attend to the problem of my communication isolation, but I’m still not operating normally. I used the connectivity I had for a while to upload a picture of the first camellias of the season. I expect they will be out for Christmas in a couple of years.

It started raining and everything is back to where it was yesterday, i.e. static bursts on both lines.

If you are wondering why I don’t switch to cable, my Mother’s cable has been acting up for several days, so I wouldn’t have gained anything.

Ah yes, The Phone Company. At work we want to move a DSL line from one building to another. TPC says they can’t do it in less than 30 days, though it’s *literally* a matter of flipping a switch in the CO…

You have my sympathy. Sigh.

At this point I expect to greet Godot long before I see a TPC truck. They may be selling the franchise to someone else as the corporate name of the TPC has changed about every 5 years since I’ve been here.

Ah, yes, TPC. “The President’s Analyst,” right? Dog knows he needs one now…

That’s the reference, Steve, Zero needs to start acting like he cares, because I don’t see any evidence that he actually wants to do the job he was just elected to. Just like the Shrubbery, he is a better candidate than President.
