Give Me An S...Give Me a T...Give Me an R...

STRESS. I have to call my Internet provider, ever since we had our last lightning storm, my modem has started this high-pitched hissing sound, and my computer drops without warning, now. ANNOYING.

And Thing Three is sick...AGAIN. I just kept him home from school with a fever a week ago, Saturday he started coughing and Sunday morning he had a fever. He still has the fever, so I'm keeping him home. I have no idea what is up with him.

I'm stressed out, I feel like I have very little time to accomplish things. And I'm currently on hold. I LOATHE being on hold. Especially when the wait time is long. I guess I'm particularly miffed because I had the speaker phone on, and after a ten+ minute wait, I finally got a hold of someone, and I accidentally hung up on them trying to switch to regular phone. *cue Wilhelm Scream*

SO, about 8 minutes later, I just got a hold of someone, and she had to transfer me, and they're telling me my wait time exceeds 20 minutes. TWENTY FREAKING MINUTES. UGH. I have STUFF TO DO!!! I AM ON A NARROW TIME LINE!!! I HATE MY LIFE!!!!

*Ahem.* Okay, sorry, I am just having one of those mornings.

Life is funny. You're going along, you think you've got everything right where you want it, and then CRASH BANG BOOM things come crashing down around your ears, and your stress level gets catapulted to Level OhmygoshI'mgoingtostabmyeyesout. It's not fun. I'm not currently enjoying this particular stress level. But if I went and sat in a corner and stared into space, it might freak my kids out, so I have to buck up and get through it.

Cross your fingers for my mental state.

The hold time is unacceptable. Let them know, and let the BBB know.

It only takes 15 minutes to write the letter to the BBB -- less time that you're on hold. You can do it WHILE you're on hold.

And you'll get results.

I agree with Devon. I contacted the BBB after US AIR charged me an ungodly transfer fee for a flight I changed 3 months before I was scheduled to fly. I got my money back!

Here's hoping you'll be enjoyed a Diet Sundrop soon!

Seems like we're all having "mornings". My back hurts so much right now that I think it's another stone, and I'm the only one who can open the store. Talk about stress!!

Poor you. I hope things settle down for you soon. I'll send you good thoughts!

If I had a nickle for every time I've accidently hung up when trying to switch from speaker to normal on the phone...
