What an aggravating week. I’ve spent a week now without phone service. We haven’t been able to call in or out since last Sunday (oddly enough, our DSL service is unimpaired). My wife does have a cell-phone, but we got it primarily as an emergency device, and so selected a plan with minimal regular minutes. Our usage is therefore rather restrained.
We called Qwest’s automated repair line and set up a repair order, but it was apparently lost somewhere. We set up another that was supposed to be fulfilled by 9:00 last night. When nobody showed by 9:30, we called the repair line again, only to be told we’d been bumped to this morning. It is now under an hour from noon, and still no sign of a serviceman.
I’m getting very seriously annoyed.
