Telephone Pt.4/More Birthday Reminders

Got an email this morning from BellSouth...

Dear Albert Sims,

Thank you for contacting BellSouth regarding no dial tone for
318-3xx-xxxx. I will have a technician dispatched out by no later than
0600p on 08-22-02 to get this line repaired.

Should you need further assistance or have other questions, please reply
back to this e-mail and the BellSouth Online Customer Care team will be
happy to help you.

Sincerely,

Bellsouth Repair


Not sure whether to call them to let them know the phones started working again late last night and seem to still be working, or let them send a technician out anyway...just in case...

In other news...got another birthday card in the mail today, this time, from that finance company I borrowed money from a couple times in the past(it's been over 10 years since I did any kind of business with them, yet they send a card every year). Really don't want to be reminded of my birthdays unless I'm going to get some "intimate romance" on that day!

Dammit,fucking dammit!

BellSouth calls me just a little after 6pm this afternoon to confirm my telephone is working. I tell them it is. 7:30pm, I try to call the friend I was going to call last night. Damn phone is dead yet fucking again! My mom is still awake next door. I go see if her phone is working. It is. I call BellSouth. After being on hold almost 20 minutes, I finally get a repair representative on the phone. She tries to call my number, and says "there is apparently trouble in your line". No shit! Second evening in a row, at approximately the SAME time! They say they will try to have a repair person out by 6pm tomorrow. I don't think it has anything to do with the lines here in the house, I think it is somewhere on THEIR end, otherwise, why would it just be going out just in the evenings? It worked all day!

Damn pin-headed BellSouth pricks!

(The internet connection is still running "smooth as silk" however...)

Beware....

Just checked my email...Norton Anti-Virus advised me that an email with Sender being "icq_admin" was infected with the Klez email virus. Deleted it before any damage ocurred, just beware of anything with "icq_admin" in the subject line!

In other news, phone's still dead and internet still working...go figure...
