The (No) Cable Guy

Over the weekend, I didn't check out that Invasion movie, like I wanted to, as so many of my friends were telling me about how bad it was & the real movie critics tend to agree...so I guess I'll wait for it to come out on cable....speaking of cable TV: I had to have a technician come out to make repairs, yet again.

Someone came out last Tuesday, but on Friday it went out again. So a guy came over yesterday afternoon & just minutes before he arrived, the cable is restored. I was so f*ckin pissed...

I had him take a look at it anyway, and he found a bit of cable that had a tear in the outer protective layer. He replaced that bit of cable & it seemed to have fixed the problem. That is, until 10 p.m. last night when.....surprise....no cable!......FAAAACCCKKK!!!!

I have to tell y'all about the technician that came over yesterday. I really felt uncomfortable talking to him, because one of his eyes was dead...or lazy...so whenever I looked him in the eyes, I didn't know which eye to look into. He was one of the better techs that I've worked with so far, and I felt like a total ass when speaking to him, cuz my eyes kept switching between his eyes, desperately trying to figure out which one was the good eye...but I bet he gets that all the time.

So, yet another appointment is set up for tomorrow afternoon...third time's the charm (this month alone)...I'm going to request that they do an entire rewiring, from the street line to my cable box (which has also been replaced this year).

Current Mood: Frustrated!

You deserve a hot cable guy. Bad gay porn has been based on flimsier plots.

Just sayin'.

If it's comcast, i'm sure you know you're paying each time one of those guys comes.

I feel your pain. Nothing pisses me off like a bad cable or internet connection. I freaked out on Comcast last week and as a result...I no longer watch television. The party is over, and I think I stayed too long.
Now it's just a DSL connection and whatever the rabbit ears will pick up, which is nothing so far. Screw it.

Yes, you deserve a hot cable guy indeed. I can already see what happens when he shows up. It is playing in my mind over and over ;)

Jim? Jim Carey?
Nah, he wasn't a hot cable guy at all, actually. Our cable TV is crap. Absolute crap. Thanks for the weekend update too.....

Having the cable go out is almost as bad as having no internet access - though, these days, those things can be one in the same.

Just pick ONE eye no matter what, and stick with it, dear - that's what I do. Or look at his nose. You COULD stare at his crotch, but no telling where that would lead...
