I've called Verizon and Fairpoint twice every day this week to attempt to cancel my DSL service. Every time the IVR system says "all agents are busy and the lines are full please call back later". WTF must I do to cancel? Send smoke signals, carrier pidgeons, or something else? I can't log into my account on VZ's site to disable the credit card billing either. goddamnit. This merger already sucks.

So a funny thing happened to my 2005 Toyota 4Runner Limited today.

It was conveniently due for inspection, oil change, and tire rotation all at the same time. Supposed to take about and hour and a half so I decided to just wait there since I can get Sirius radio through my Treo.

After two hours I ask for an update.

It would seem, unbeknownst to me, that the automatic leveling deal for the rear axle wasn't working properly. I always have the radio on so I didn't hear it, plus it was at the proper level so I didn't notice it.

Turns out a sensor failed and wasn't reading the height properly. The service dick tried to reset it, but in the process caused the sensor to read one side all the way down, and the other all the way up. They had the senior tech on it too. This caused the ass end of the truck to go all the way up and lock the rear suspension. They didn't tell me the rear suspension locks when in the full up position.

I make an app't to bring it back Monday when they'll have a full day to fix it and they'll be giving me a rental car for free.

Needless to say you can't drive a car with the rear suspension locked. Fucking dicks. I even asked the guy if it was safe to drive, and would it fuck up anything else. He said no. Yeah, wrong answer budday.

So I get home after a very bumpy drive and call the dick and tell him it's undriveable. My plan was to tell him to have a flatbed sent to tow it back and that I'd need a rental stat.

He was apparently just about to call me (yeahoksure) right when I was calling him because he talked to the tech (didn't do it before I left :rolleyes: ) and tell me he had already arranged for a flatbed and a ride to the rental car place.

So the flatbed shows up. The rental car guy shows up to take me to the rental office and I drive away in a 2008 Toyota Camry with Sirius radio built in to drive while they unfuck my 4Runner.

Thankfully it's all under warranty. That and I can throw the service center asshole under the bus if anything else is fucked up since he said it was cool to drive.

They run you every day in training there?

MO is only 1 month of training (vicars and tarts) due to the professional nature, but i would like to seek additional training becuase i have the rest of my life to practice - i'd like to do a spot of terry taliban hunting while im still walking

Short the line Jack Bauer style so a tech shows up. Then hold him at gun point until he calls the central office and cancels that shit.

I think you'd regret it every moment of your life if you didn't, good on you.

i would regret it - im fit and able, irrespective of the politics i'd like to do something for the country i love. most people call me an idiot but i don't mind. im thoroughly impressed by life in the UK, and would be more than willing to do a bit more than test afghanis for pinkeye.

not that that's admirable, i'm not a hothead nor interested in killing people in their own country (im from n. ireland for god sake), but i would like to be part of something great. you're also one of the very few people to give the choice a thumbs up, everyone else thinks its mad

good cv pad too :D

Well that's the thing, most folks in your peer group WOULD think you're fecking loony for doing it. :lol:

Fifteen years later, with a desk job and searing boredom, it's a different story. You look back and regret the things that, even though you're not old, you're too old and settled to do.

most in europe were against the iraqi mire, as was i. brits have since pulled back to the airport with only a small presence there. the main mission is still the afghan, and will be for a while yet i'd imagine.

ill probably still be posting here anyway, albeit ill have a viagra pill-shaped deskclock. :lol:

This is nothing against you personally. Browne did you all Chamberlainesque dishonor with the agreement that he made with the Mahdi Army.
