Today has sucked so far, no if's and's or but's about it, it's sucked. I woke up late, forgot to make coffee, got to work and froze, tried hanging 225lb pieces of pipe around 5 other guys on ladders, found out the fire inspector is having fits, ran out of concrete anchors, then had to pick Lisa up at 1:00. She drops me off so she can go somewhere with Holly and I head for the garage. The one bantam hen has went broody for a few days, so I seperated her. I come in the house, and see it TOTALLY trashed. The dogs somehow broke the gate we contain them in the living room with, and went wild. Trash all over the house, they ate the stale bread that was in the dehydrator, they ate about a half pound of coffee beans, they got in the cupboard and ate a container of chocolate frosting, a bag of egg noodles, shredded the bathroom trash, got in the trash down here, and ate probably a good 5 pounds of potatos from storage.
I toss their furry asses outside, clean the mess, get them back in and locked up, and grab a coke to sit, relax, and check my email. Guess what? No internet!! I walk upstairs, grab the remote and turn on the tv and cable. "this cable box is not authorized for use"!!!!!!! $%&@^#&*^!@ I get the last bill, sit on the couch, go through that stupid automated computer BS, then get stuck on hold for almost 20 minutes to talk to a real live person. The bill is in Lisa's name, so I have to run and find a paystub of hers since they need the last 4 digits of her social before they can help. After waiting for all the info to come up, they tell me it was disconnected for non-payment. BS!!!!!!! I paid $116.24 on Friday. Here comes the kicker........since the payment was late, there was a late charge, and that was considered "past due". YEP........they shut off my cable for a giant grand total of EIGHT DOLLARS AND SIXTY FOUR CENTS. I asked the girl-"are you kidding me????", to which of course she replied with "well........ummmm...ahhhhhh....". Forget it, just put 10 bucks on the debit card and turn my cable back on. After nearly an hour, I'm finally off the phone, walking through the kitchen and staring at the half bottle of Gentleman Jack I've had for a year........."wonder if I can chug that????" Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa (should I mention that my cell phone provider did the same exact thing to me last year for TWO DOLLARS?????)
I've had enough of this, that was the last straw. The cable is going off at the end of the month. I've talked and talked about it, but never really did it. We always have an excuse, but no more, I'm done. Write me up for saving $113 a month. I can't wait to walk into that place and hand them the cable box and modem.
