Have you ever changed your email address? Was it as much of a nightmare for you as it has been for me?
All I wanted to do was save a little money every month. How hard could that be? Hmmm???
I changed email providers from Earthlink to Road Runner. I was assured by the “nice gentleman behind the counter” that it would be a seamless transition. He lied. I have spent the last 4 hours contacting and/or emailing all the people who need to know this information, and some who probably don’t. I was told I had 24 hours to notify everyone prior to my old address being cut off. Guess what? It was cut off almost instantly and I couldn’t receive any messages.
First I called the new email folks. Why? Because I couldn’t access the new email. Apparently the “nice gentleman behind the counter” wrote down my new email address incorrectly. Gah. New email folks were very nice but could not help me access my old email. So off to the old email folks I went. I got ahold of some guy in East New Delhi who wanted to charge me $3.95 a month to keep my new email address before he would release any pending messages. I started to lose my religion so I just hung up. Forget the “lost” messages.
Today I absolutely hate technology. Hate it. Hate it again. Hate it some more. I know tonight I’m going to have nightmares about who doesn’t have my new email and who can’t get ahold of me.
