Swing and a Miss

A beer my sole prize.
After heroic effort,
No joy in Mudville.

Written by Captain Hops.

References: Comcast took three weeks and three visits to accomplish nothing. Verizon started out strong using an impressive amount of dedication and ingenuity to delicately muscle through the first couple of problems. Things seemed to be going well. Visible work was getting done. Items were looking complete. When hurdles came up, they threw team members at it. No one gave up. But at the end of the day… still no internet, still no TV, and now no dial tone. They say it should all be straightened out first thing in the morning.


Verizon to the Rescue?

Cold despair after
Cruelly broken promises.
But at least there’s beer.

Written by Captain Hops.

References: After three attempts by Comcast have accomplished exactly nothing, Verizon says they can put in FiOS tomorrow morning. Dare I hope?

If they can pull this off, they will earn the respect, admiration, and praises of this prestigious publication.

If they can pull this off, it will give me the opportunity to tell Comcast to shove it up their asses.

If they can pull this off, frankly, I’ll be shocked.

We shall see, gentle reader, if they can pull this off.

Comcast Sucks

Waiting with my beer
For Godot, the cable guy
Then he can’t fix it

Written by Captain Hops.

References: You wait for hours. If they arrive, they tell you they can’t fix the problem. Then they go away. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

A show of hands… Has anyone ever had a Comcast guy come within the time frame specified and actually fix the problem on the first try? I don’t think I ever have.

From House to Home

Toiling briskly
With a cold beer by his side
He creates a home
