Success!

Posted by Gwen |

I meant to come back here yesterday and let you know that everything went well, but the installation guy, who arrived at 9 am, was here until about 6 pm and after he left I had to jump in the shower to get ready to meet some friends.

He was a very nice young man who actually knew what the hell he was doing. For three years I've been paying for service to my second floor but DishNetwork was never able to make it work up there. AT&T guy? Made it happen. It took him 9 hours, but he did it. He kept telling me all day that my picture was going to be better. I scoffed, but I'll be damned if it isn't. I think it has something to do with each end-user having a dedicated line, you're not losing the strength of your connection through splitters. Whatever, I have no idea what I'm talking about.

Anyway, not much to say . . . I have to drive up to my home town today for my step-sister's wedding shower. It's an hour and a half drive, one way, so I'm just here to say goodbye to my precious Sunday. Please God, don't let there be games.

I was all ready to sing you the bom chicka bom porn theme music after the first paragraph when you said he was there all day and you had to shower afterwards.

Then for a split second I got hopeful that you would meet someone at the wedding until I saw the word shower - I should go put on my glasses and get my mind out of the gutter.

I agree with TLWDL, this post has a porno-esque vibe to it.

"each end-user having a dedicated line"

bow-bow-chicka-bow, indeed.

Oh, my Lord! Now that you mention it . . .

This particular line jumped out at me after I read your comments: "For three years I've been paying for service to my second floor but DishNetwork was never able to make it work up there. AT&T guy? Made it happen. It took him 9 hours, but he did it."

When he said that he couldn't accept tips, I should've replied, "But I can."

i work for AT&T and have heard some major installation horror stories.

I myself do not have U-verse yet, I may just wait until they get it perfected.
