Jerry Springer~I miss your porn…

Jerry Springer~I miss your porn…

About three months ago I changed service providers for my internet and tv. I have had my phone with Telus for years, and they made me a really good offer that put my bill down about 35 bucks a month. I figured, sweet… and only one big conglomerate to bitch at instead of two right?

Now I am sometimes fairly technically challenged, even though I try my hardest to figure it out, this tv has some days sent me to the edge of insanity, and you all know I am fairly close to that edge anyways…

See the problem here is common sense.

Apparently as soon as I pick up the somewhat confusing to me remote control, all of the common sense that I normally possess, flies right the fuck out my front door.

Now I have tried to be reasonable, I have tried to be calm, cool and collected. I don’t show my fear…

It just seems to me, that if it isn’t ME screwing it up, it is messing up all by itself.

We have pixelation, we have freezing, we have the dreaded black screen…

I have rebooted, restarted, pushed the fucking OK button, and nearly ran over the damn PVR box with my truck a thousand times.

Still, nothing good is happening.

And my BlackBerry…well lets not get me started on RIM right now, we are all dissappointed right?

So in the wise words of my friend Lou, over at Pissy Kitty’s Litter Box…I am going to back away from the screens slowly, all of them…and I am gonna go outside and get some fresh air, I am going to find my real life again while the weather is still cooperating, I am gonna take my wee dog for a walk, and live my life a little bit more than I have been as of late.

You know me well enough to know I won’t go far, but for today…I am outside, and all the technology that is screwing with me right now can go to hell in a handbasket…

Have a great Wednesday my friends…

    A couple of years ago I cancelled my satellite TV feed and I really miss MXC and a bunch of other stuff on the tube but now watch DVDs uninterrupted by rain, critters nesting in my dish, and, God forbid, snowstorms! What I used to pay for "cable" now pays off my Amazon and eBay DVD bills nicely!

    Not a happy Princess?  I just refused to pay $100 charge on my Foxtel, which they graciously decided to refund, so I feel your pain!

    I feel overwhelmed with my job responsibilities and then with keeping up on the blogging and modern tech as well.  Sometimes we need to make changes or back away to re-think things.

    Saying "Sorry things didn't work out for you today" won't help any, huh? I visualized the whole story and I had to laugh. Terrible terrific post.
