No Cable

January 23rd, 2015 at 02:20 pm

Last night I turned on the TV, and every channel had the message that it was momentarily unavailable. This morning, the same. I looked at my Comcast account, and there is no outage reported. Sigh. What a hassle, just trying to figure out what's wrong. Their website is not user-friendly at all, and calling them is a nightmare. I'd switch, if AT&T weren't just as bad.

I checked for my mittens in Lost & Found last night, but none had been turned in. It occurred to me that I might have left them in my home station, but there is never anyone there -- at least not at the hours I am there. I'll try Lost & Found again on Monday -- tonight I will be too late; the office will be closed.

I am meeting the President of our board tonight to switch our association's bank account to a new bank. This was mostly at the urging of our outgoing President, and it is probably unnecessary, but the wheels are in motion and I will carry it out. The new bank will be Chase; maybe we can get a bonus!

We also have to go through a pile of papers to file in order to get our chapter reinstated. It's a mess.

I checked on the PurMist site and distilled water is okay to use, so I stopped and got some at Walgreen's. I picked up a bottle of wine, too. Total cost was about $8.

I bought 7 pairs of SmartWool socks from the Trekt site yesterday. They were 20% off and shipping is free. The total was $94! Yikes! But they should last me a long time. I go through cheap socks in record time. Holes in the toes seem to be my specialty!

    "Chapter reinstated" made me shudder! There was an issue with our Scout Charter (apparently) and now that it is 9:00 I can try to figure out what is going on. I had a random call from the Boy Scout leader who casually mentioned a problem with the Cub Scout charter. I then got a text at 6:30 AM from the Cubmaster that he received calls from the school AND the church and can't call them during business hours. OK ... I imagine I can now go and try and see what is up ... and I didn't even FILE THE CHARTER. So I appreciate the mess you are dealing with. Smile
    Boo about Comcast. That is how they lost us as customers. Hope your gloves turn up and good deal on the socks! Smile Smile

    Regarding that Comcast outage, you can likely get them to knock a few bucks off your bill because you're so annoyed over the outage. They'd rather do that then hear that you're looking at competitors.

    Clark Howard says Comcast is the NUMBER 1 worst company in terms of customer service and the products it sells.

    We used to have Comcast and their customer service is definitely the worst! We switched to Verizon Fios and are so much happier with them!

    Yes Comcast sucked. Switched to Att&t a few years ago, they're a little bit more expensive but the service is 3x better than comcast. Only had one outage over the last two years, I could count on Comcast being out at least twice a month

    The heels of my socks are always what goes first = probably because I walk around in just socks at home most of the time (on my feet!)
