"Down the Drain with Jane"
Wednesday, May 14, 2014 • Posted May 14, 2014

It has been said that, “Mans science and technology will destroy him.” I don’t know about this, but a television man can sure cause me to have the hee-bee-gee-bee’s!

Life was so much better with only one TV channel. Okay, there was snow. There were the lines. And there was the black and white only. However, there was the Loretta Young show, the Ed Sullivan and the Wednesday night boxing. Not to forget the Lawrence Welk hour.

Do not order repairs done on a Friday afternoon, when repairs are needed to your TV service! It’s a Friday and they don’t want to fix anything on a Friday afternoon. They want to go home. This HD thing isn’t all that it’s cut out to be. Z can see the difference, but I can’t. However, if you’re paying for it, you might as well be getting it, right?

After two days of pushing this and that on the remote, it was decided that a repair man was needed. I have no idea where this man went to schooling, but they didn’t give him any classes in DIPLOMACY! After he left, I was to take a survey on how the service was. GOOD- I hit the one button, followed by the # button until they said that they were transferring me to a live person. The lady in New York, got an ear full. I told her that I was just about to hit the wine bottle!

No wine for me, but I did have a carbohydrate filled supper! Counting my blessings that this repair man was not kin to me.

P.S. When life seems to get you down, EAT CHOCOLATE!!!!!!!
