It's not what you think O Bloggy People.
After months of dealing with an Internet service provider whose technical department ranks right up there with the likes of those who don't know their...never mind....*breathe, Mimi, breathe*
I am tired of seeing this.
I am tired of talking to the same people over and over again.
I am tired of phoning them more than I call my own mother.
I am tired of apologizing to said service people because my fuse got so much shorter than my skirt.
I am tired of getting a completely different story about why my connection is weak EVERY SINGLE TIME I call.
So today when for the 5,398th time they told me AFTER sending a technician physically out to Bloggingham, after installing a new antenna, after sending a new device, after creating three work tickets that NO ONE followed up on.....**breathe, Mimi, breathe**....it has been declared that my problem is "terrain" and "trees" and not their ability to serve everyone during peak hours - for which I am graciously paying a'plenty for.
"Your problem is terrain. And trees, ma'am."
"I see.....terrain. And trees."
"Uh...sir....I have a much faster connection after midnight."
"Yes. I can zip zip zip fly through my work."
"After midnight you say?"
"Yes. After midnight. I have more signal bars after midnight."
**tapping fingernails and glaring into the computer screen."
"What about early in the morning? What then, ma'am? Do you have a good connection then?"
"I wouldn't know that, sir."
"I'm asleep from staying up half the night doing my work because it's the only time I can stay connected."
"Oh. I apologize for that ma'am."
"Terrain....it's the terrain you say, O Brilliant Technological Wizard?"
"Yes ma'am. I hate to be the one to tell you this but we're not going to be able to provide you with adequate service because of the mountainous area you live in."
'"That's amazing, sir. Just amazing."
"Why is that, ma'am?"
"I was never aware that mountains could move after midnight."
