The Cable Guy

Just out of curiousity, does anyone have a GOOD story about their cable company? Like "They made an appointment between 10 and 2, showed up at 10, solved my problem immediately, in a way I could not have solved it myself*, and now me and the cable guy are best friends!"

Just curious.


*i.e., not just cycling the power and telling you the box is fixed.

Was this post in response to the Washington Post article about my new hero? http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/10/17/AR2007101702359_pf.html

Well since you asked...I had just gotten married and was settling into my new role as a housewife when Ted had to go away on business (again!) It was a hot day. The cable guy was due to come by around 10 or 2P. Our house had just been robbed recently by vintage clothing poachers, so I had nothing to wear but a towel (oh well!) All of a sudden, I had an intense craving for pizza, so I called up the pizza guy so I could have something to eat while waiting for the cable guy. After I ordered, The 20 year-old British boy in a band who lives down the street came by to apologise for his loud precision-tight World Class drumming.

Three hours later, the cable guy, the pizza guy, Nigel Upton-Soames and myself were STILL playing Boggle, watching "Ice Castles", making crank-calls, eating pizza and listening to bootleg Keith Moon drum solos.
