::Satisfaction, Grace for Accountants, Hidden Messages


“When I’m driving in my car
And that man comes on the radio
And he’s telling me more and more
about some useless information
S’pposed to fire my imagination
I can’t get no, Oh no no no
Hey! hey hey, that’s what I say…”
-Mick Jagger and Keith Richards


So yesterday—I called my ISP… after calling the previous day and got NO CALL BACK;  I listened to all the prompts and decided I would talk to accounting, because they always answer.  It’s easier to get money out of you, if they can talk to you in person.

I proceeded to tell her how many times I’ve called. How I keep getting voice mail, leave a message, try POWER CYCLING YOUR ROUTER advice (via a recorded voice), etc. I wanted to talk to a live person.

  Hormones.

Ok.  I have NO internet at this point.

The accountant, remember her?  She usually takes my money says to me…

“Have you tried emailing them at COMPLAINTS@ (I.S. Provider) DOT COM?”  ???

BLANK STARE    @@  

Hormones.

Calmly, I say to her.  “How am I going to email them, if I don’t have internet?”

Now, mind you.  I have a smart phone. I have DATA… I can send an email.

BUT THAT’S NOT THE POINT!!!!!!  She doesn’t know that.  If this had been LAST SEPTEMBER.  I wouldn’t have had a phone with which to email ANYONE! let alone,

THE COMPLAINT DEPARTMENT!!!!

I wanted to scream.  I want to talk to someone and get a live voice. I want to hear something besides… POWER CYCLE MY ROUTER.  I want something on the books—AN AP-POINT-MENT! 
I’m a reasonable person.  I am. But come on…

So—Today.  It’s a month since I had my last day out with my Dad to run all his errands.  His pay-day.  I’m taking him. My youngest daughter takes the Grand-daughter to the park with her.  I take the baby with me—he gets to see his Great Papaw AND TAKE A NAP IN THE CAR. The Honey, takes a chill day.  He’s not feeling well. (Won’t go into that- at- this- point.) I take an appointment with Wi-Fi Guy between 8am-5pm,  I take a poor excuse of an appointment with the propane company between today Wednesday and Next Wednesday…  another story.

 Hormones. 

The farmer takes a wife.
AND THE CHEESE STANDS ALONE.  @@

So it’s been a month since I last took my dad on errand day, talked about living in my car, and NO radio. Oh yes!  I got a replacement radio in my car!!!{Big smile.} 

I was singing at the top of my lungs when “SATISFACTION” came on the radio today.  Thank you Mick.  You’ve expressed my own feelings pretty well.  :)

Thank you, Lord, for getting me through this day; AND FOR The grace to deal with hard of hearing old men. The grace to be nice to the accountant. Thank you for the Wi-fi guy…and the entire 5 minutes he was in my home. :)

 --because i can laugh about it all now... there is a hidden message, did you find it? 

Til next time, Be Blessed!

:: it's Technical but NOT Impossible...blogging!

I just wanted to pop in here and leave you a quick post thanking everybody that stopped by to read my  CREATIVE BLOG HOP post!  I know it was lengthy- and by the time you add all the pictures and links -- well, it just seems to go on and on. So THANK YOU!
Any way-- please, make sure you visit those ladies next Monday too - they'll be writing their blog post telling you more about what they're creating. 
As I write this post-- I'm sitting here with phone in hand pecking out each word on my iPhone. I've never EVER done this before. I wasn't even sure if I knew how!  
Yesterday the internet was acting goofy. I called them and before I even got a call back from the SERVICE TECH. It mysteriously started working. 
But.
Very.
Slow. 
Today? NOTHING. 
I've been on the phone with them all day. My brother even tried to help out with it. The final say for now is--- they're sending a guy out to have a look at the antenna. 
I'm happy to say that it's not like before--- NO WIRES HAVE BEEN CHEWED BY DOGS!  I would be mortified if that happened again. 
I can still check the emails. So go ahead leave a comment- I read each and every one. In the mean time I'm going to figure out how to put a picture in this post!  Well I tried. 


Til next time, be blessed!
