The incidents in this house where things stop working for no apparent reason are starting to get out of control. Today I lost my digital phone service and the internet service disappeared — right when I was trying to get an assignment done for school. Talk about panic. At times I wonder if this house is possessed – am I the subject of a haunting? Or just incredibly stupid luck?
When I couldn’t log into school, I checked the phone which was also out, then found the number for our cable company and made a call using my cell phone. I figured it’s Sunday afternoon and no one will even answer the phone. Well, I was well taken care of customer-wise – what a surprise. What is funniest about this latest glitch in electronics/technology is the problem wasn’t the fault of the cable company. Nor was the fault with the modem – what actually happened is one of the outlets on my surge protector suddently stopped working. And it was the outlet I used for the cable/phone modem.
How odd is that? Why that particular outlet?
I’m thinking it’s about time to call in an exorcist. Well, first I’ll invest in a new surge protector. But then I’m callin’ in the big guns.
