Horror of all Horrors

I am without internet service for the next 5 days-- or more.

I spent most of last night on the telephone to my provider.

They have determined that I need a new modem, which they will ship today. It should be here within 4 to 5 working days.

4 to 5 working days?!! What kind of service is that? For goodness sakes, OVERNIGHT the thing!

I need my fix!


  1. Eek, that sounds like it's going to cause major withdrawal! Can't they overnight the modem! :-)
    You'll be missed...

  2. See you on the flip side, Zoe!

  3. Oh that is a horror!

    I look forward to a week's worth of garden pictures when you get back!

  4. OH no!! I hate when that happens.

    I'm also looking forward to a week's worth of garden pictures when your back online:)

  5. A real-estate agent told me last week that she wanted Broadband for her business, so she rang a major supplier and was told they would post the modem to her. She said there's no need to do that as my office is directly across the road from you and I can almost see in your windows as I speak. After much argument, the provider still insisted that it had to be posted. NINE WEEKS later it still hadn't arrived!

    Another provider was more than happy to oblige immediately.
