So Monday they told me I’d be back online Tuesday.
On Tuesday, they assured me that my Internet would be up and running by Wednesday.
Today, Wednesday, I was told: a) they had no record of my being promised either, and b) I’d be surfing by this Friday.
Okay, I’m going to go out on a limb here and declare Telus’s “Train a monkey to work tech support” program a big fail. It may have seemed like a good idea but, clearly, holding their annual job fair at the local zoo’s primate enclosure didn’t really pan out. In retrospect, I suppose I should be grateful. They could have disconnected my Internet service, given me the run-around for three days, AND thrown their feces at me. Today, I was ping-ponged between tech support and customer service so many times I actually became nauseous.
All this to say: you’re regularly scheduled blog postings will resume once Telus feels like getting around to doing whatever it is they do.
Oh, and I’d like to take a moment to respond to the poster who accused me of plagiarism because one of my emails to a spammer was exactly like one of the email responses featured on this site: http://www.spambait.wordpress.com. Yeah, genius, they’re identical. As is every one of the emails on said site. I know because it’s my site. I put them there. Check my blogroll. Or better yet, consider attending Telus’s next job fair. Trust me when I say you’re just the type they’re looking for.
