It’s getting rediculous now ๐Ÿ˜ก

Ok so we had our 2nd lovely electrical storm a week and a half ago now. Big bang, flash, sparks no Internet or phoneline and much upset about it.

Most of the area had a similar issue.

Everyone else who had a problem (those that I know) had the issue resolved by a new router – but not us… oh no.

I have been told 7 times that an engineer from Open reach will be on the case – we have seen no one.

The next update was that Open reach needed a “local” engineer to work on it.

No one came out.

The next update was that he had come out but even though we were in the entire time and the area where he needed to work would have set the dogs off but of course because no one was out it didn’t, but he fixed a little bit of it… but wait… Open reach needs another “local” engineer to work on it.

No one came out.

No one came out. (Yes I meant to write this twice)

The next update was that he had also come out… his one we did see (he showed up in a digger) 

He sat there for 10 mins vaping. He dug a hole (took 2 mins) He dug another hole (another 2 mins) at the foot of the metal barrier on the walkway.

He then sat staring at the now unsecured barrier for 30 mins while he vapid the entire time. Then he left with the barrier. 50 minutes (40 of which he used staring at a barrier doing nothing but vaping)

but wait… Open reach needs another “local” engineer to work on it.

But they won’t be out until the 16th!!!!! And who knows what they will pretend to do.

So here we are with still no Internet having used up more than 80% of the data on my mobile allowance that has to do me until the 2nd September – which it won’t. And let’s just say I’m not a happy effing bunny!

I don’t need this crap in my life. 

Cheerie-bye the noo! I’m off away to explode my upset in a quiet corner where no one can hear me scream (lol!) Xx

    This process being known as “giving the job a good coat of looking at”. Looking on the bright side, by Tuesday you ought to have internet and two holes filled in … looking on the gloomy side the filling in bit may well require the services of a further local engineer. Well, fingers crossed for you, but Karen – please don’t fall down a hole in the meantime, eh? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Ridiculousness knows no barriers (heh heh…see what i did there?๐Ÿ˜)…internet powers that be, postal service powers that be…you name it.

    Hope you finally get satisfaction…I know what it’s like to have to use up all your ph data for access.

    Good luck๐Ÿ‘
