same as the first – and it did get worse. I should not be hearing any chuckling here….
We might be back online again. I don’t want to get myself all excited here. And I’m not really sure what transpired between AT&T and me but:
We lost our connection again. And again. And again. And then this lil Cajun said: Just an effin minute here! I have had enough of enough. So, unfortunately for AT&T, I called them on our emergency cell phone (once we found it in your car, in your trunk, in your hiking sack)
Outcome: AT&T is going to eat the $180 bill we received for service that a toddler could have provided. We get to keep the new modem for free. We lowered our speed. We kept our land line but limited our minutes to 215 minutes a month. We don’t use the phone that much. That’s 7 minutes a day. Great! Some days we don’t even answer the phone. That means we talk longer some days. Our monthly bill is less than $80 – phone and internet combined.
This didn’t happen quickly. I had to call back 6 times within 3 hours to get this done. I had to use the word “SCAM”. I did not curse. Or holler. I just, somewhat calmly, told them what I thought of AT&T. The last lady I spoke with was fantastic! She did exactly what any of the other representatives could have done. I guess we won. 😛
Then, while I was somewhat here or not here, plenty people seem to have visited my blog. WordPress sent me a message “Your stats are booming…your blog appears to be getting more traffic than usual.” I have to go see what that’s about! I’m trying to get better about reading those things that pop up under the quote bubble icon thing. It’s like a telephone! Ack! I think I’m nervous 😦
I have made some serious decisions about where I will post my work online. It took a while to make this decision..but it’s made. Something creative has come from that process and I’ll post that later this evening.
