Sometimes you just gotta laugh,...

Ok so some days you just gotta laugh - cause the alternative - crying - isn't gonna help.

I have a routine when I get home. I curl up on the sofa pick up my lap top and play some mindless games on the net till I am hungry for dinner,

In the middle of my relaxing game last evening my internet crashed....nothing else .. just the internet signal.

Now I have been having this problem every 2 weeks since April. Every two weeks since April I have called my ISP and given them hell. On Sept 4th they sent me a techie who looked like he knew what he was doing. He changed the phone cables outside the house. I have had perfect internet service ever since.

Well that is .. until last night.

I will spare you the total stupidity of the level one tech.. and the level 2 tech... and the fact they changed the password on my computer and forgot to tell me... I will say that they did send a technician out to the house tonite... (he just left)

Anyway...... I am trying to calm down last night.. telling myself I will watch some mindless television. So I put on some new show and am actually getting into it when POOF the channel disappears.. just .. disappears!! All the other channels were working fine.. including the baseball channel !! .... but not the one I wanted to watch.

I do believe I had steam coming out of my ears.

Anyway.... I kept busy at work today and when I was home I managed to "steal" a rather poor signal from one of my neighbours so I could at least d/l my email. (not nearly as satisfying as playing mindless games but hey you gotta do what you gotta do)

At 6:00 on the dot the tech arrived.. corrected the password error created by the dipsticks last night.. et voila .. my pc is up and running again,.

Of course the initial problem wasn't even looked at.. cause there is no problem ... NOW.

So I am back - up and running... you gotta laugh.. honest you do!! Cause we all know in 2 weeks I am gonna be off line again... and the merry-go-round goes round and round.

Now I am off to play some mindless games........ and chill out.


  1. This is why I do my own troubleshooting and fix my own computer "issues"! lol
    Well,it also helps that I have a computer tech BF! lol

    I'm sorry you had to deal with dumb & dumber ... maybe now you can chill out and relax.
    Mindless games work for me too! LOL

  2. Mindless game are good.

    Problems NOT happening when the techy visits are normal.

    I am sooo lucky that my husband is a computer nerd - he solves most of the problems. And the ones he can't solve he has others he can ask.

    Best wishes and hope your weekend goes smoothely
