Seeing is believing! - Vent

For as long as I can remember the last time we had good steady signal with our internet (two different companies)! Wouldn't you think the first thing these techs would check would be the cable box? Everytime we would call we'd get the same response, just to call back when our signal drops. But when we would they would do a speed test or monitor for a while and they would never see anything wrong. So FRUSTRATING! Especially when you're playing Choo Choo Soul and it pauses every few seconds!

So today, we had a great technician who check everything. He did find some issues and then said he would going to check the box. ((And supposedly we had the maintenance crew come out and replace some wiring the week before)) He came back and told us he found the problem. We had over 5 lines connected (non-professional) into our cable line! OMG! It's like having a 6th toe, you never thought it would happen to you. So.... we might not be very liked this holiday season. I feel so bad though. He said only two people on our block (including us) were paying for internet! :p He had three people walking out to the box even before he left so they are busted and he would going to send maintenance again to monitor the box for the next few hours.

Hopefully this will fix the problem and next time we have problems I will be asking them to go check the box first. There are so many good offers for internet right now and if you can't afford it why not just visit your local library! We did for a few days last year.

Thanks for hearing me out!

  1. OMgoodness... I don't mind sharing, but that in my book is stealing and how unfair that you've been paying for crappy service just so everyone can get their's for free.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
