I spent an hour and a half on the phone with Road Runner only to find out that it'll be SIX DAYS before they can come out and fix my hookup. SIX DAYS?!?!? What am I gonna do for six whole days at work without internet? Work????
Somebody suggested I call YSB, the best tech guy ever. Not so simple, I replied.
- He costs money that our office cannot afford.
- He is doing me a favor currently at my house and I don't want to blow that.
So I guess we'll just have to muddle through for the next six days, right? Wrong. Ten minutes later, who do you suppose walks through my office door? YSB! I haven't seen him in my office in at least 10 months!!! What is he doing here? Oh, the landlord of our premises who he is currently doing a job for wants to "borrow" our internet hookup for a live video broadcast on Sunday night? You're joking! My modem just blew! What? You can take it yourself to Time Warner and swap it out and install the new one? That would be lovely, thank you. And of course they can borrow our hookup!
I guess Hashem doesn't look so harshly on my internet addiction after all :)
