Forgotten Appointments

Guess it is a good thing Ochsner Health sends out reminders about upcoming appointments. I had completely forgotten I have a "post-op" appointment Wednesday morning!

Might be a good time to bring up the sharp pains I get in my upper left arm when reaching high or stretching it quickly and the ensuing numbness that occurs in my two smallest fingers at the same time, while I'm there.

Fucking Comcast (EDIT: Or Maybe Not)

It's 5:02pm. Comcast Business was supposed to have someone out between 3-5pm today about my internet issues. Someone was also supposed to be out TWO Saturdays ago between 10am-noon, and no one showed THEN either. I'll be going to their local office in the next couple of days to speak to someone FACE to FACE. Phone calls and the "Comcast Cares" Twitter account are USELESS.

EDIT: Turns out they called Andrew's phone number instead of mine with an automated confirmation, and apparently he must have cancelled the appointment. He was the original owner of the account when he was living here, and supposedly transferred the account to me when he moved. However, Comcast, even though MY name is on the bill, still had Andrew's email and phone number as primary. I was in their system as "Service Admin".

After a lengthy Twitter conversation with a representative, I think I've FINALLY got the account straightened out, getting all Andrew's information removed. A new service call is scheduled for Wednesday between 1-3pm. Hopefully I'll be home from my "post-op" appointment at the hospital by then.
