Internet headaches…….

Sorry for the long delays in writing, but I am dealing with a malfunctioning little hot spot and some of the worse customer service I have ever dealt with, with our current internet supplier. I made a call 7 days ago and informed them of our issues. They set up and appointment for 6 days later. Understanding the entire island is dealing with these issues, I patiently waited until my appointment day. Then waited that entire day, as I wanted to be sure to be here when they showed up. And I waited……… and waited. 5:00 that afternoon – I called customer service again… they said their repair guy was on the job and just running a little bit late. Okay, I can deal with that. 8:00 came and went and I gave up on the guy. Called again at 09:00 this morning to inquire happened to the repair person……. only to be told they have no record of my repair ticket or telephone calls…….. What in the hell ???  I just talked to you 12 hours ago!?!?! Choking back the urge to yell – I scheduled ANOTHER appointment… at least this one is a little quicker – only having to wait 4 days this time. I [politely] asked how do I know the same thing will not happen again ? The young lady gave me a ‘ticket number’… AHHH…. a ticket number~!  Woo-Hoo~!  That and a dollar will get me a cup of coffee (maybe)….. not entirely happy with the way the conversation went – I again politely told the young lady I would like to speak with a manager. Absolutely~!! Except there are no managers currently available…… but I will have one call you the minute they are available~!!! Al-Righty-then…… looking forward to the call. Guess I may as well enjoy looking forward to the call…. as it’s been almost 3 hours now and still nadda~~~ Not going to hold my breath….. and will wait as patiently as possible for my next appointment….. Shouldn’t have to worry this time though, cause I have a ticket number~!  😉

Picking up from the last page……. we wrapped up our dive of the shallow wrecks and loaded back into the boat to head for our second location known as Spratt Hall. Shallower water with a reef that is still in pretty good condition (apparently a lot of the reef was destroyed during the hurricanes)- this reef held lots of coral, sponges and aquatic life, including a couple of Sting Ray’s~! I behaved myself and did not chase after them [[much]]  😉  I sucked my air up considerably faster than everyone else, so I headed up to the boat for some beer and pine apple while the others on the dive spent the last of their air.  Stephie finally came up and we enjoyed the sunshine and a quiet calm ride back to the dock. It was nice to make a couple of dives with my own equipment….. it was even nicer making those dives with my Daughter. Especially now, we don’t get to spend much time together as it is and to be able to do it, doing something we both enjoy and can share makes it extra enjoyable……….  🙂

Now to see if I can get some pictures to load……. Thankx for stopping in~!

Stephie~~ <3

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
