For those of you concerned that my health has prevented me from posting today, other than some discomfort, I’m okay. It’s friggin’ Spectrum that is all manner of unwell.
I don’t know why Spectrum cannot get its act together. All day long my internet connection has been dropping out. Sometimes it stays up for a couple hours, then it will drop out half a dozen times in thirty minutes. I’m about ready to tear my hair out.
How in blazes am I supposed to work when my internet connection keeps dropping out?
I’ve called Spectrum and suffered through their automated “technical support” more times than I like. The automated system sends a signal to my modem “to resolve the problem.” And at the end of each call, the recording says, “If the problem occurs again, call back and we will connect you with a support technician.”
Within minutes, the internet drops out again.
So I call Spectrum again and get the exact same automated system that once again sends a signal to my modem and then tells me to call back if I have the problem and they’ll connect me with a live human being.
As it stands now, I have yet to speak with a live human being.
Does Spectrum not employ human beings?
The last time I called, I was yelling at the automated female voice – which is the digital equivalent of an old man screaming at clouds.
When the automatic voice said, “Was the issue resolved?” I answered, very loudly, “Yeah, for now. Until it happens again. Just like the last half dozen times!”
I confused the poor thing.
I am now going to attempt to post this.
If you’re reading it, the internet connection held long enough for me to post it.
Here’s hoping tomorrow is more fruitful for me.
