Frontier Frowning

Hi All!!      To those who thought I fell off the edge of the earth–  it’s round now!!      Didn’t you get the memo??             “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth,”    Isaiah 40:22A   KJV

slob, humor, earth

I finally got internet,    YAY!!!!       after 10 days of waiting, past the day they “Said” it was working.     Boo!!!!       And yes, everything WAS hooked up correctly, thank you very much!       (No, of course not by me!!       Sweet Friend is a certified IT guy!!      He taught it, in the Navy.      Oops, I wasn’t supposed to tell you that, now I have to kill ya.       Loose lips sink ships, ya know.)

Then, I had to cancel Frontier, after only 8 days.      Because, the bill I received the 7th day was for $118!!!       I know, I know, $50 was for the modem.

But 50 from 118, still leaves $68!!       (And yes, I asked DD1 to check my math, just in case!!)         When I called, blah, blah, blah, taxes, fees, they said.     Where was the $46 a month I was promised????       So, I cancelled.     Not having it!!

Also, it was so slow, a snail mail letter would have been faster than my emails!!             (I’m just guesstimating here…)

So long story short, I haven’t been seen or heard from since March 28, because I have no net again.     And I can’t blog on my phone!        (I can barely type a text!!      Have you seen how tiny those letters are???      And do ya know how huge my man-hand fingers are???)       And so many things have been happening, that I can’t talk about right now, it’s just not been possible to get over here to SF’s.      So, today, I’m gonna try to knock out 4 posts, since I’ve had yesterday’s scheduled for 2 weeks already!        (Love that Asian dad so much!!) slob, humor, Asian dad

Here’s hoping!!

Friendly Frontier

YAY!!     I think I’ve solved my no internet problem!

Bright House became Spectrum, and raised their rate $20.     Well, that left me out in the cold, since I’m paying off my credit cards.

THEN!  I saw a Frontier truck in the neighbor’s driveway, and inspiration struck!      It was like lightening!

slob, humor, truck       I got all excited!     So, I called them up, found out it was only $46 a month, only $6 more, instead of $20!!!        A big woo hoo there!!

So, I asked XH, to pay over the phone, and gave him the $46.     I was ecstatic!!           Home internet in T-7 days and counting!!

That was on Tuesday.

Then on Monday, I get a letter in the mail.       From Frontier.

Not looking good here.                

It was worse than not good- it was horrible news!      They said my credit wasn’t good enough to have service without a deposit, so they couldn’t serve me.        What in the world was the $46, that I had already paid, which the guy TOLD me was a deposit???

slob, humor, what???? face

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m mad now.      

slob, humor, " I'm mad now" face    (Can ya tell???)

So, I called and finally got a real live person.        No, I didn’t unleash on her.        I just asked for an explanation, of the contradictory info.

Her answer was, “Not enough signal strength” in my area.       Uh, huh.          And why then was I signed up for service, and charged on XH’s credit card???

She apologized several times.       But all that hot air didn’t get me internet.

So, now here I sit here at SF’s, stewing in my own juices.          (Trust me, it’s not a pretty picture.)

Frontier is not so friendly now.

(Back to the drawing board.       The soaking-wet-from-all-my-tears, drawing board.)

In Case You Were Wondering…..

The reason I was gone so long was 2 falls in 2 weeks,and, an unrelated to the falls, 5 day hospital stay.

Needless to say, I was busy not feeling well!

But all better now! Unless you count having to use a walker, then… not totally.

(Wheelchair, walker, what’s the diff??  2 wheels and a seat!)

Anyhoo…..

Fortunately for you, my fingers still work fine!! (It’s my Internet connection that fades in and out…)
