You’re on BASE! Take some time to catch your breath … you are safe.

SHEESH!!!

I had one of the wonderful “5 hour window” appointments today with the people to try to fix my TV stuff. My window was from 12-5. I came straight home from Bible study and proceeded to wait until 4:30. Around then they called and said it was going to be after 5 … did I want to wait or re-schedule? After waiting all afternoon of course I was going to continue to wait … no way I’m rescheduling.

They showed up about 5:45 and stayed for almost an hour … and … are you ready for this … I still don’t have TV service. From what I understand the receiver I have is no longer used. They still have some, but the company I’m with no longer uses them and so I will have to upgrade … or change everything. So now I have to make a decision about what to change … to bundle or not to bundle … to just forget it. I’m leaning towards forgetting it. I’ve about decided I could save money by just subscribing to NETFLIX and  watching all my shows by season instead of one episode a week. I’m not sure what I’ll go with, but I feel a reimbursement of some sort is in order here. Should I pay for TV service that I haven’t been able to watch for two weeks … I think not.

So I guess it’s not the technology gods on this one … just the stupid people that feel we have to change everything and make it newer every two months. Most of my stuff is outdated before I figure out how to use it. I’m getting old. The fact that I’m even considering going without tv proves this … eek.

One benefit from all of this … I’m finally listening to all the songs on my ipod!!!
