I am on hold with the phone/internet company as I write this blog. As worked up as I am getting, I decided I am going to change how I am looking at this. If I don’t, things are only going to get worse as my attitude is getting worse every minute I am on hold. (Oh, aaarrrggghh! And now I got disconnected)
Let me bring you up to speed on what is going on. I am attempting to get internet and a land line phone hooked up at our new place. It has been almost 2 weeks since we started this process. Tonight it is supposed to be all hooked up and ready to go. And it’s NOT working! I called the company from my cell phone to find out what was going on, only to get disconnected 4 of the 5 times I called. Now I am off the phone with them after being told that the department I need to talk to is closed for the night and I could call first thing in the morning. Okay, the situation hasn’t got any better yet.
So writing this blog didn’t solve my internet/phone problem, but it did shift my attitude. When I did actually talk to a human on the phone I was nice and we even laughed in the end. That wouldn’t have happen at the start of the call. I must admit, I am disappointed that the situation didn’t change and it can’t get resolved until tomorrow morning at the earliest. Even though I changed my attitude, my circumstance didn’t change; however, my response to it did. And as I sit here typing this, I am now at peace about the outcome.
And if you are reading this, that means I got internet and phone working at my house.
