I pause for a moment to go....


AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, that was good. I needed to scream. I have only been swearing and stamping my feet. Why? Because since last Friday night by internet has been down – again. My internet service provider Promptel – aka compete and utter useless bastards – did not know what was wrong and why it would not work. I pointed out that I believe that they would not know if their collective arses were on fire. The consultant I got, called...er…Wayne…made the mistake of telling me it was my fault. Foolish boy soon to become eunuch. I explained to Wayne he was talking out of his derriere and that he needed to read back on his notes about cranky pants Amarinda not happy with lack of service and the succession of faults - 5 in all. He did. “Oh,” he said. Yes Wayne – that’s a big 10-4 on your ‘oh’ and what are you useless pricks going to do about it now? Short version of this story – because the long is filled with me going off my head, dealing with lying-their-arses-off consultants and cursing the sons of motherless goats at Promptel -they eventually, after much harassment from Ms Jones who pays for a supposed service – ha, ha, frigging ha - fixed the problem again….do I believe it’s fixed properly? Um, that would be a big, fat NO with rainbow sprinkles on top. Promptel could not organize a piss up in a brewery. In the interim I have signed up with another service provider. In Oz, probably the same where you are, there is a complicated procedure for churning from one telephone carrier to another – it’s all to do with being fair to the competition. It takes about a week or in my case 3 as I won’t be home during the week for them to come and do what they are going to do to get me de-Promptelized. But 10th of May I will be Promptel free….hallelujah and pass the gin. All the discounts in the world would not keep me with those wankers.


More tonight when I get home from work.

How extremely frustrating. We'll have a short moment of silence for your internet issues.

Sure hope the next bunch are appropriately respectful.

I feel for you. I don't think I can live without internet. Although I will from tomorrow until Sunday. I'm not taking my laptop. They make you pay $25 now for every extra piece of luggage.

Idiots. I have a similar situation with my alarm company.

Alarm goes off.

Jae calls alarm company:"Don't worry, SO trying to cook again." Alarm company: Huh? Alarm?
Jae: er...yes.
Alarm company: We haven't been getting a signal from your address.
Jae: for how long
Alarm company: about six months.
Jae: Are you #@$% kidding me?
Alarm company: er...no.
Jae: Why didn't someone fix it?
Alarm company: You have to request repair.
Jae: I didn't know it was broken.
Alarm company: It's your responsibility to call periodically and make sure we're doing our *&^% jobs. (Okay that was paraphrasing.)
