For the record

Can I just say that I hate AT&T?

If AT& had a face I would stick my tongue out at them.

If AT&T had toes I would stomp on them.

If AT&T had a stomach, I would sock it like a punching bag.

If AT&T had fingernails I would shove tiny pieces of bamboo under them until they screamed.

There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

No boiling oil?
No drawing and quartering?
No iron maiden?

LOL. I wrote the whole story in a response below. Stupid company.

I had a lot of trouble with them, too...assuming you're talking about internet. But, only after SBC bought them.

Actually not the internet, it's been a repair that left a giant hole in the backyard for 3 weeks after the repair was done plus trying to get the yard marked before we dig which took forever and then they filled in the hole, at last, and removed all the markings so now I have to start that hassle all over again. Grrr.

Shove the bamboo in a couple of times for me. I'm assuming you didn't win the battle?

With great joy I will add some bamboo torture on your behalf. It's not the end of the world just sooooo frustrating and time consuming and stupid. Need AT&T to fix the phone. Three guys to find the problem. They need to dig a hole. They don't dig holes. Call a contractor. He digs hole. Still needs repair. He doesn't do repairs. Two guys come back to fix phone. Phone fixed. Fill in the hole (liability issues so we can't refill.) Repair guy doesn't fill holes. Call every day. Wait 3 weeks. Hole is finally filled.

BUT - at the SAME time we have a dig ticket to get the lines marked where the cables are underground. AT&T comes by and says we don't have underground cables. Hello? I have a giant hole in my backyard. More than a week of harrassing them that we do indeed have the underground cables. Up the chain of command. Finally someone comes out and finds PART of the cable. Can't find the rest of it.

Back to getting it repaired. At last, fixed. Still with a hole.

Locator guy comes back. Now he can find the cable. Marks it with orange paint.

Guy comes and fills in the hole.


I am back at the beginning.

You may absolutely say you hate AT&T. And may I say I hate Verizon who sends me an online bill even though I've never, ever had their service?

Oh that is insane! See my explanation on the above comment of the stupidness of that company.
July 16th, 2008 06:54 pm (UTC)
It seems insanity abounds. Hope this gets sorted out ASAP!

on another note, this is a fantastic piece of writing!!!
July 16th, 2008 01:44 pm (UTC)
Thanks, sweetie. I'm lucky to have you in my corner.

Just thought I'd throw that in...

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
