This is a thank you to AT&T. For over a month now, every so often our home phone will ring rather weakly. A number will come up on our caller ID on both the phone and the television. We pick up the phone, and no one is there! OR, we can faintly hear two people talking.
The Mr. finally called a cell phone number that appeared on caller ID. It belonged to the people who live about 5 houses down from us. She was calling their home number. Lovely. We have some kind of cross-over connection happening.
To top it off our home phone has had so much static we can't hear.
Have you tried calling AT&T lately? You can't talk to a person. Ever. Or if you can, it is a 25 minute wait on hold. (Seriously, who has that kind of time?)
Best thing about AT&T? Even their calls to tell you it is "fixed" are recordings. And it never. is. fixed.
We are three service calls in now and our phone still doesn't work! I am so glad AT&T is so efficient. Well, efficient at recordings. Their service stinks.
And this is why people drop their home phone lines and use only their cell phones.
Thank you, AT&T. I think I am about ready to do the same! And if you think I am paying for a month of no service and a month of no home phone working, you're nuts! (My guess is that if I don't pay my bill, I just might hear from an actual person!)
