SOL March Challenge Day 12
I am disappointed. I thought that I would have something interesting to write about today based on what happened on Tuesday. Wrong.
We switched cable, phone and internet providers. Surely there would be plenty of fodder for writing with all of the things that could possibly go wrong. Wrong.
Things never go as easily as you expect them to so I could write about mishaps. Wrong?
The first thing I could complain about is waiting for the serviceman to arrive. I was given a window of 12:30 to 5:00. I could complain about not getting anything accomplished because I didn’t want to be in the middle of doing something when he arrived. I could write about constantly checking out the window to see if a vehicle is parked in my driveway. Wrong. At 12:15 I received a call from the serviceman saying he would be here in a few minutes. Well, that blew that idea.
Maybe I could write about the hard time he would have trying to find the wires he needed. I could picture him pushing up block after block of the drop ceiling in the basement trying to find what he needed. Those wires are never where you think they should be. Wrong. They were behind the first tile he moved.
I could write about how complicated the new remote would be to figure out. After all, it had more buttons and different things than our old one did. Surely it would take a master’s degree from MIT to figure it out. Wrong. It worked similar to what we had and in some instances it is easier.
I could possibly write about the hassle of getting our desktop, two laptops, two Nooks and two Kindles hooked up to the new server. After all, passwords had to be changed and complicated ID numbers had to be entered. Wrong. The serviceman had them all up and connected in less than five minutes.
Now I am totally frustrated. I don’t have anything to write about today. Maybe I just won’t post today. With the number of people participating in the March Challenge, my one little entry surely won’t me missed.
