There is nothing that I hate more than being lied to. Except for maybe someone lying to my husband. However, that’s exactly what happened with the cable company that was supposed to come out and hook us up with broadband. On Monday, someone lied and said they tried to call that morning to come hook us up. Strike one. Chip called on Tuesday and they said they’d be here sometime before noon today. Well, noon rolled around and he called to find out what was going on. Apparently, the woman on the phone lied on Tuesday because there was no service record set up for them to come today. Strike 2. They are now set up to come on Monday MORNING – we’ll see how that works out. I’m not holding my breath. However, we will NOT be calling to cancel if they don’t show up in the morning, but I will be calling at lunch to have the wireless people come out to set us up with satellite access if my broadband isn’t up and running by lunch time. Tell me you messed up, tell me there was a clerical error, but do NOT lie to me like I’m an idiot who doesn’t know what they are talking about. That’s a quick way to be sure you’re dropped right down to the bottom of my list.
