So. I am using Brighthouse here in florida for Cable and internet services. So far this has been very difficult.
I called on monday and initially no one returned my calls, so i called the company direct (rather than the special deal person they initially gave me). The company was of course not able to come on the 2 days I had off this week. So I was going to have to call and get a new appointment when I got more of my schedule.
Then miraculously the saleslady was able to somehow force an appointment for Tuesday. I was thrilled. The guy was going to arrive on Tuesday between ten and one. While I was awaiting him the hospital called and asked if i couldnt fill out my paperwork etc on tuesday. So I said well, how about at 2 pm, figuring that would definitely give me enough time.
Well, Cable guy was late, I suggested that I needed to be somewhere, and that maybe we could do this another day. he insisted that it would only take a few minutes. It of course took him about 30 minutes and it now turns out he didnt install all of my television channels. I am supposed to have an inane amount- 200- I have 50. I need about 5. I would not complain but i dont have bravo and I want to catch up on last seasons Project runway which I missed while in NM with no TV! I really couldn't complain I figure because they had forced the appointment but I discovered when I was on the phone for a protracted amount of time with the technical support today, that I will actually recieve a 20 dollar credit if he "really was late". I am many things but usually I can be counted on to not lie about something as simple as on time or not. And normally i wouldn't want to get anyone in trouble, but that guy was annoying as hell. (I think this is the first time i have used that word in writing) and I think he deserves that.).
Cable guy says he can not install a splitter as its against regs. So today I got a splitter, I didnt realize I needed another cable wire to go with it. I cant figure out how to use it, call the company, they were able to explain it over the phone but it did take me a long time to "get it" I proceeded to become quite annoyed because it seems just getting basic cable and internet service in one room is going to now take the majority of my day. I now have to drive into the office to get the second cable. Grrrrrr.
Well. I relish the idea of being able to watch some television while playing babble so I clearly need to get this fixed. I just dread having to call back yet again to get the Bravo channel installed properly over the phone.
Not really what I wanted to do on my day off today.
