Ten Things To Do While Waiting for AT&T to Hook Up Your Internet Service

  • Grow a beard.
  • Read several dozen books.
  • Watch several dozen movies.
  • Learn to crochet.
  • Peel lots and lots of potatoes.
  • Attempt to measure the depth of your disappointment.
  • Take up a new hobby, like microbiology or cheese.
  • Purchase a variety of wiring from Lowe’s and build your own internet.
  • Reincarnate yourself as a DSL technician.
  • Enjoy a nice long coma.

“Attempt to measure the depth of your disappointment,” that is one of the best things I have ever heard.

Haha! Dude, I feel your pain. When I moved to Dallas, it took them 3 weeks to get me hooked up.

I’m so sad for you.

You’ll all be happy to know that after roughly 2 hours of tech support help, 1 hour of calls to customer service and no less than 26 days of waiting, DSL has been restored at Hacienda Christensen. AT&T is the devil (except for Natalie, B.J. and Tara – 3 very nice people who couldn’t actually come out and kick the technicians in the pants, but who helped and comiserated with me. Thanks guys.).

I feel a scathing blog post coming on. I wish I had screencapped the awful registration process I had to go through. You’d think we were all still clubbing mastadons or something. Sheesh.
