One of my trees knocked down the neighbor's phone line. (1)
My neighbor is elderly and in a nursing home but I still felt bad about the line.

I called AT & T to try and report the downed line but the computer didn't like the fact that I wouldn't provide an account number. I didn't want to provide an account number because it wasn't my phone line that was down. The computer hung up on me. I called back and told a whole series of bald faced lies to the computer so I could talk to a real human being.

The first real human being had no idea what to do with the downed line.
After 20 minutes he put me in touch with a guy in India.
The guy in India asked me a dozen questions, none of which had anything to do with the location of the downed line.
A half hour into that conversation and I'm starting to look for an exit - any exit.

As soon as they gave me another phone number to call during normal business hours I hung up.
I then went out and cut the line off the neighbor's house and wrapped it around the telephone poll. (2)

Good enough.













NOTES
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1: If you must know, I was trimming the tree and the branch got all Leroy Jenkins on the phone line.
2: My neighbor said this would be fine since they don't have land line service.

Not too many people even use land lines any more. I think they have gone the way of the dinosaur. That is probably why you couldn't get anyone to listen, except a computer and a guy in India.

Thank heavens for India.

You should feel sorry for the poor tree.

If I had a tail that I could shake like that you'd not be able to keep me off the dance floor.
