Saturday - Today started with me getting up and quickly calling Comcast because last night I was talking to Snowmanlover on my cell phone and we kept getting disconnected so I tried to call her back from the house phone and there was no dial tone on my phone which led to a call to Comcast repair department....ok.. I'm getting to my POD...lol Anywho.... the doorbell rings it's the Comcast guy and he goes to work... about two minutes later the bell rings again... another Comcast Guy and a another truck.... hmmm.. must be a major problem.... another five minutes go buy and, yep, you guessed it... truck #3, guy #3. WOW! Must be a real doozey! They tell me it appears like I have a phone off the hook (we've unhooked all the phones in the house, the DirecTV, everything).... so they have to start tracing the lines in the house because a line has gone bad. My home is an older home, so apparently that complicates matters. Guy #3: "Do you have a basement or a crawlspace?".. ME: "Crawlspace". Guy #3 "Where is the access"... Me: (Thinking OMG he's not going to go down there and if I open that closet where the access is I'm really going to be embarrassed) "You're not going to go down there are you?".. Guy #3: "I hope not, but I need to look"... Me: "Oy Vey.".. I open the closet and it's like one of those closets you see on tv.. you open it and there's not one available space in there.. the access to the crawlspace is on the floor, so I start lugging things out... he looks and nope.. no problem down there... (THANK YOU VERY MUCH)... I put it all back in... then he starts looking around and says where's the attic...? OK, now I'm thinking to myself.. "are you freakin' kidding me?!!! It's worse than the closet you were just in!"... so after terrible humiliation they finally got the phone line fixed.. and guess where the problem was... OUTSIDE!
