It’s amazing how isolated you feel when you don’t have phone service.
The people who owned this house before me, had planted a seedling of a Blue Spruce right up against the house, in the backyard. Now, 7 years later it’s as tall as I am, and can’t stay there, so, I called my brother Michael who just bought some property in the country and asked him if he wanted it… he did, so, I said, come dig it up! lol (that’s the catch)
He came the other morning. I was in the shower and didn’t know he was here. He started to dig it up, and, in the process severed a big phone cable, and the cable line that was near it (I don’t have cable tv, so no biggie on that one). I’m out and about getting dressed and he knocks on the door, um, Steph, I think I cut one of your phone lines (I have 2). We checked and sure enough he did! LOL He cut both of them (when you do something, do it well huh?)
I used his cell and called Qwest for repair, this was about 9:30-10am. The Qwest guys showed up at 3-4pm, and when I opened the door, one of them actually went, Ta Daaaa! LMAO
I showed them the uncovered and cut cable, and they started to act like it was really serious, not sure how they were gonna handle it… and then they started laughing, said it was no biggie they would splice it together and how they appreciated that we hadn’t buried it. I thought buried it? Why would I do that? Well it seems that people who have done this in the past, have covered it back up, then reported, that for some weird reason their phone isn’t working… they have no idea why.
I mean come on people how stupid is that? lmao Like the repair guys are gonna believe that a perfectly severed phone cord just magically cut itself? Tooo funny.
Well I went most of the day with no phone,(and no computer), yes I went through withdrawls, felt isolated, like the last person on earth….
I LOVE my phone and computer! lmao
The youngest guy grew up in a big city and wanted to pet our rabbit, he was putting his hand out to do so and asked, does it bite? The older guy says, "Just you!" lmao Scared the other guy, and he jerked his hand out fast.
They were very funny and a pleasure to deal with (not the norm for phone company people). So, I’m among the living and have some of my basic cave woman needs now met…. How’s your day going? (Grunts, mmmmmmmm PHONE, MMMMMMM COMPUTER, MMMMMMM POWER! Me Happy Girl!) LOL BIG HUGS, Steph
