I have now been given reason to hate Verizon, at least for landline.

They were supposed to be coming over this afternoon to take a look at the cabling inside the place I live, to figure out why I have dialtone outside but not inside.

They came yeserday. And didn't call me, either to see if it was ok, or to let me know they were here, _or_ to tell me that they'd tried and failed to get in touch with me (they didn't csll the number I have for me, my cell, so what _DID_ they do? Ring my doorbell?!). I know because I called _them_ a bit after 4 today, wondering where they were. Y'know, after all their techs were gone for the day.

The best part? I picked today because there _were_ no times open before then.

Stupid Verizon.

So. Comcast, which already has a cable box for my apartment, is going to be my next attempt for phone and 'net. They come over on the morning of the 16th. At least I know the previous tenants _used_ cable... And tomorrow I call Verizon and cancel. And if they try to charge me for any of the service in Woburn, I am _not_ going to be fun to deal with.

And, I continue to have no 'net for another couple of weeks. *irritated growl*

At least I have 'net from work. And a cell phone. And nearby friends from whom to borrow 'net on weekends.

Also, mostly because being cryptic is entertaining my brain at the moment: Yum. :)

(Actually, that one word about describes most of the last week for me! Must be summer or something. ;)
