Yeah!!!!! I now have phone and Internet service.

The straw that broke the camel's back came this morning. When I arrived at the shop there was a message on the answering machine from my phone/Internet provider. They said it was a "courtesy" call to see how my service was. WHAT service?

I called back and pitched the biggest fit I could muster up. I cited names, dates, times, etc. of all my contact with them since February 2. The woman on the other end got both ears full.

When I pulled in the driveway a few minutes ago a service truck pulled in behind me. I'm back...as of 5 minutes ago.
