March 23, 2007
The cable guy did not deign to make an appearance yesterday, so I called the cable company. They informed me that my appointment was for “Tuesday, March 22nd”. I pointed out that Tuesday was the 20th, not the 22nd, and that I would never have made an appointment for Thursday, since I’m leaving for Detroit that day. Logic, as usual, made no difference, and of course by then there were no earlier appointments available, so I’m going to have to wait until the guy shows up (if he does) before leaving town. As my friend put it, “Nothing works anymore.”
