As many of you know — I’m getting ready for a big move to a brand new apartment. With that comes a lot of coordinating and planning. Our cable company made one very big mistake about our move and shut off our service in our current apartment a month too early! So yes, we were left without TV, Internet, and phone service for two days. Who cares, you may think. And I would have said the same — until it happened to me.
When you’re on vacation, you are ready to unplug, you need it and you want it. But in the middle of a work week when you are unexpectedly thrown off of your routine and contact with the outside world is ripped from your grip — you get angry fast! So as I was pulling my hair out with frustration, as our nice field tech Rich tried to get our service turned back on, I wrote out a list.
This is a list of things to do when your cable and Internet go out without warning — like when your cable company screws up or something more dramatic happens like a blackout.
1. Go to the movies. It occurred to me that we had been binge watching Netflix for so long (House of Cards is amazing!) that we hadn’t actually been to a theater in months. It was great to get out and see something new.
