A multitude of alligators
There's been a tad bit of whining this week--like Florida is supposed to guarantee balmy breezes year-round. I look on cold snaps as a chance for Mother Nature to do a little pest control. Marcia convinced me that I should put a cloth on the rosemary bush in front to protect it against the expected 30 degree temperature. I have no ugly fabric, and sure enough someone took it.
I spent quite a bit of time trying to convince Earthlink to let me have wi-fi at the shop (my original account is at my home). I've gone through the phone tree system twice, only to dead-end at an option where if I leave my number they will call me. NOT. So I switched my answers and finally reached a human being, Michael, but he wouldn't talk to me because he was a different department. He switched me to another dead-end where I left my number again. Trying once again, I reached Michael. Now what are the odds of that? I told him, he obviously was the only human working for the company. He insisted that wasn't the case, but once again no one has contacted me. My last try resulted in my speaking to a gentleman in India. After several misunderstood sentences, I hung up on him. I'm thinking of sending a snail mail letter to the company, begging for mercy.
