i'm not real fond of the phone company either

So there is a certain phone company. AT&T, that stands for Assholes Through & Through in case you did not know. MANY years ago we had a issue with them, I will not go into it, it is too horrible to revisit. So imagine how upset I was when our current phone company was purchased by said Assholes. I tried to switch, no other company serviced our area. This is a city people, not the boondocks! I was pissed off every time I saw the AT&T bill in the mailbox. But then, one day, there was a ray of hope. The company from hell informed us that they would no longer be servicing our area. Again, this is a city! With joy in my heart I called our new phone service provider, set up the switch and went on my merry way.

Well, first they new people tried to over charge us by $50! We finally get that resolved and then proceed to set them up on automatic payments. That is not working either. Because they are "Your Entertainment Company" they are are not able to deal with my no cable or internet or long distance or cell phone, just a basic land line please, plan. The punch line? They disconnected our phone! Without so much as a "you might want to stop what you are doing and take a look at this" notice.

I can only imagine what people are thinking when they call and get a disconnect message. I am off to deal with that now.

Knitting and fiber pics later.

That's pretty weird. I'm tempted to switch to them to be able to have an iPhone, though.
