Mother Nature: can I have a kiss goodnight?
OR ARE YOU NOT FINISHED HAVING SEX WITH ME?!
Snow. Took down my FIOS line, almost pulled it out of the box on the side of the house. Cars running over it, pulling it a little more each time. Call support and get "Naveen", the Wonder Dunce.
"Please give me the access codes so the tech can fix this."
me: what access codes?
"Alarm codes, etc."
me: "uh....NO. Did you miss the 5 places where I mentioned the box is on the OUTSIDE of the house?!"
Yesterday morning, I suggest to the wife that I rehang it myself. She asks if I'm insane and do I want to get electrocuted. I'm like WTF - its FIOS, its either fiber optic, or copper and barely "live". She forbids it and promptly calls the fire department. /faceplam
I'm so mortified, I told her, you called, you go talk to them. I hid upstairs.
They put some nice yellow tape on the wire. There were prolly many eyerolls.
Anyways, they never showed up yesterday, so I climbed up, installed an eye hook into the side of the house near the roof, and re-hung it myself. Wife was very pissed; not sure I cared by that point.
In better news, I got my new dehumidifier and its cranking away in my now-empty indoor pool (aka the basement), and I got one of my replacement tools from Home Depot.
