I wanted to take a moment and thank you for having patience with us today. I am sure most of you know we are located out in sticks (or the boonies). I can testify living in the sticks has its’ advantages and also its’ disadvantages.
Today was one of those days when it was a big disadvantage. Having internet access out here is a miracle. Today, it rained and the wind blew, knocked our cable out. The phone rings, it disconnects all of our computers from the internet. The cable company is suppose to be coming out and fixing that. A car wreck down on the main road, knocks our cable out.
I know it has to be aggravating to you as a reader of our daily posts. I just want you to know that we are doing our best to get the job done. But there are circumstances that is beyond our control. I sincerely appreciate your patience with us. I also apologize for any inconvenience that this causes you. Just remember we will always try our best to resume posting as soon as possible. In the meantime, we are pulling our hair out.
Thank you so much, dear family,
Luv & Hugs,
Well good morning/afternoon to ya’! How are all of you doing the day before Turkey Day? Myself, rather good. We went last night and picked up our turkey. We took Tom and had him smoked at one of the local Bar-B-Que joints, lol! It is not a joint, the restaurant is known all across the country for their bar-b-que. We got the turkey home and just had to have some sandwiches. That turkey melted in your mouth, damn it was delicious! Yum-yum! I told my husband I will never cook a turkey again. We will take it and have it smoked, boy, they are good.
Enough talking turkey, 🙂 or else I will be in there eating again. Seriously though, I would have been here sooner but our cable is out. Some of the office wanted to watch the news today while they worked. I went to turn the darn thing on and nothing!!!! So I called Comcast. I don’t know if any of you have had dealings with them or not. But I would soon as pull my hair out as mess with them. They talked about our problem for 5 minutes. Had me get up and go unplug the box, come back to the phone and then tell them if it was working. Well of course not! Really quickly the salesperson said, “it will take 30 minutes.” Then he proceeded to tell me all the specials they were having. He had worked us up a package that included our phone service. I said no. He then told me how much I would save. I still said no. Then he said well let me change your account and you can call and cancel it if you don’t want it. Final straw, I told him, “Have you not been hearing a word I have been saying? I do not want it! I don’t want anything done to our account. I just want my damn cable back!” That’s all it took, “there is an outage in your area, your service should be back on within the hour. Good day!” It is pitiful when you cannot get through to these salespeople. What should have took 10 minutes took 35 instead. All he had to do was listen, explain there was an outage and then hang up. Five minutes. But heck no, he had to waste my time after I told him again and again, NO! I know these companies push their employees to do this but don’t they realize they can also lose customers this way. Apparently not!
Oh one more thing and I will leave you alone. Do you have any opinions about these stores opening on Thanksgiving tomorrow? I definitely have one. You share yours and I will share mine. Come on, I want to hear from you…….
