Well, you are lucky you aren’t within earshot, because the moaning hasn’t stopped, I have just chosen not to inflict it on you. The Man probably wishes he was an online friend too…. 😉
I am on my second 4G modem as the first wouldn’t connect even after hours and hours of repeated calls to Telstra. They sent me another new one (after two attempts, paperwork mix-up don’cha know) and today was the big day for connecting it. Plug it in… wait… wait… answer questions…. wait… wait….email address faulty… error message…. nothing.
After nearly 1 hour on the phone with an overseas call centre I was losing the will to live. (Calling yourself John, Mary or Ginger doesn’t actually convince me you are in Australia, by the way. I don’t care where you are, just be helpful that’s all I ask!)
It wasn’t hard to think of something to post today as the entire saga has been something of an “It’s Moments Like These You Need Minties” moment, including the girl from Telstra who told me that of course there wasn’t a problem with the new email address (when there clearly is), the reason it wasn’t getting emails was because my internet wasn’t connected. Aaarggghh!
I think I will go to my earlier post about the Minties slogan and watch Rich Hall sing Cows Come Home again to restore my sense of humour…
