This morning I am praying fervently to the gods of Cablevision that they will shine their love down upon me & send me a technician to fix our internet & cable TV, which have now officially been non-functional for one full week. At this point, it is not even as much about having the TV & internet connection, as it is about me not having to call Cablevision and have another awkward conversation in Spanish regarding what my problem is, where the h*ll is the technician, why did I sit at home for 4 hours today if he wasn’t going to come, seriously you don’t have another technician available until 3 days from now, etc. etc. I take some solace in the fact that perhaps I at least brightened the Cablevision operator’s day with the humor of listening to someone trying to get angry in a language they don’t know very well, interspersing anger and vitriol with apologies for using the wrong verb tense.
In my mind, I imagine the Cablevision gods to be slow, dull, fatted calves, which is why I feel this photo is appropriate for how I am occupying half of my day today.
