hold the line

the fun never ends here. looks like my phone line is fixed but in the process the verizon repairman knocked out my upstairs neighbors line. unfortunately he is an mci customer and despite the fact that the verizon guy screwed it up they wont repair it. so now im waiting for mci to come and fix his line sometime between now and the end of time. and all of this (again) because my asshole neighbors have a penchant for fucking up the lines which runs beneath their access to the roof. which reminds me of the time a couple of years ago when they blamed the chinese for breaking the line. they claimed they were trying to steal long distance by tapping into our phones. the repairman and i had a good chuckle over that one. i thought the neighbors were just rude insensitive and boorish, but now im wondering if theyre not more than a bit touched in the head. they could all use a good spanking, preferably with a two by four.

we now return you to your regularly scheduled reprogramming.

now i just got a call from mci. theyre bouncing it back to verizon but they wont come until tomorrow morning. at least they called and didnt leave me waiting all day. is there some version of repairman's stockholm syndrome.
