Last week someone did a hit and run on the telephone pole serving our Hamlet, so we were all without phone and internet service. Believe me it was terrible. I had no idea I was so dependent on technology…
Any, after a very 35 hours and 25 minutes (but who's counting) good old BT put a temporary fix in place and all was well.
Or not. Our service kept dropping. Now we were unhappy, but thinking, “well it is a temporary fix, we can’t expect it to be perfect”. But then we discover our neighbours have a reliable service in place – no outages…
Cue irate phone call to our provider and the arrival of our second telephone engineer.
Now, I do not believe in co-incidences, but what do you know, we had a loose wire which was causing our problems. I still find it hard to believe that the wire suddenly became loose at the very time someone (apparently the local farmer is getting the blame) knocked down our pole. But I cannot argue with the facts. The very nice engineer fixed the loose wire and voila, we are connected!
Life is good!!!!
