Waste of Time.......
This morning - early - I had to go for a mammogram. I HATE doctors and doctor visits and diagnostic tests. I got there 15 minutes before my appointment and the 'register here' department was short staffed so I got to sit for nearly 30 minutes before I could go in and get the damn test done! Now I wait 6 weeks they say - for the results... I am hoping (hope against hope) that the whole test was a 'waste of time'.
Then because we have had internet connection problems for awhile now I placed a call to our provider......... my motto when you call with problems is 'hurry up and wait'. I know they are working to find the problem and working to solve the problem but geeeeez once they played around for an hour they announced they would have to send a tech over.... on Thursday. (see me grind my teeth?!) BUT on the bright side they put me through to the billing department who knocked over $40 off our monthly bill for 2 years!!!
AND things got even better -- the tech called and said he was on the way over TODAY..... YAY! he brought a new modem and said the problem was solved........ except I know a thing or two about computers. So I told him to sit back down until I did a speed test. TA DA!! the speed is still intermittent and not as fast as it should be. So now I have another tech coming out in the next couple of days to test the lines or something -- and will hopefully be able to solve our connection problems.
In the meantime nothing much got done around here today..... and I have a headache (le sigh).......... but it honestly wasn't a total waste of time.... the problems are going to be solved AND I will have a few more pennies in my pocket at the end of each month.
