Centurylink didn't bother to even call me about the tech coming over until around 3:00 pm and was informed that they wouldn't be here for another hour. No worries, I replied, I am no longer interested, I have Cox Cable over here installing new internet service now, you need not come.
The "real" Cox tech had the thing done in about 20 minutes and he was gone. Speed tests are showing that I am getting around 30mbps - though the package I asked for is 15-20. This compared to the 5mpbs Centurylink was giving me and telling me they couldn't do any better.
Well, hopefully, I am done with all of this nonsense. Making endless calls to Centurylink, getting sent over to Philippine incoming call lines, having to ask for Americans, then still having to go through a ridiculous process to actually speak to someone.
I have no intention, whatsoever, of paying the outstanding balance on the bill and intend on calling them to let them know that they can take that bill and remove it. For as many times as the service has gone down completely, for as much time as I have had to sit around and wait for techs to show up - they give you a 4 hour window that they can show up in - and for as much as the internet speed has dropped as low as 2.5 mbps, yeah, I have no intention of paying the 60 some dollars that is outstanding.
Half way through the work week. When I left yesterday? There was nothing in the system for deliveries today. Nothing. Unbelievable. Yesterday at least I had enough work to keep me busy until 2:00 pm and then go home after 8 hours. It might have changed since last night - contractors often call in the afternoon after they get home and place orders for the next day - but I won't be holding my breath. Meaning another long, drawn out day attempting to invent things to do.
It isn't the most favorable conditions to come back to work to after 9 days off, is all I can say, in having nothing or very little to do. Plus it's hot outside - though for whatever reason, I haven't had that much difficult adjusting to it this year. I usually need weeks to get to the tolerate-it point, not this year.
Nothing else new around here.
